I never really noticed rough idling but now it has been mentioned, I suppose mine does the same.

I imagine the clutch will slip without issue for the low speeds,

Hi Guys

Just a quick, maybe uninformed question. Became the happy owner of a Twin in December. Use to have an 800GS and during the past 2 years a R9T (don't ask). My question / problem with the Twin is its rough and uneven idling. Is it a parallel twin thing? Phoned the dealer and spoke to the big chief mechanic. According to him you can't adjust the idling, it is self-adjusting. This also causes creeping along at very low speed a bit uncomfortable and jerky. Must I just get used to it and twist the throttle a bit more?

They do have a bit of a lumpy idle and was told its normal. Others I have heard idling sound the same.. so guess it is how they are.
I dont have any issues with slow creeping and jerking throttle though. But do seem to feel the TC perhaps activating if slipping the clutch on pull away

Got my new DCT on Saturday after the Rumbux crash bars and bash plate was fitted - put TKC80 on the front. Rode it to Bathurst and back after filling tank in PE. Fuel warning light at 240 km- averaging 135km/h mostly in D. Hopefully fuel consumption improves when engine has run in. Buffeting/vibration of helmet peak is very bad. Besides the US sourced wind deflector between the tank and forks or home made are there other solutions available locally? Dealer not aware of anything

I find that having a handlebar bag helps a lot

Thanks Rob for the feedback. I have been looking for one for my AT as I had a Touratech handle bar bag on my 1200 GS which I found very handy. Where did you get your bag?

Never thought of the handlebar bag as a wind buffet minimiser but it may well help....this has been the bike with the best airflow that I have ever owned by a long way, I dont ever close my visor even!
