    Bolt is metal and pan is aluminium, so there's a decent chance you damaged the pan.

    I've heard of people using helicoils, but you'll have to flush it since this will likely leave some shavings.

    Isn't that already the case?



    Chain production dictates they keep variations simple, they probably would not go that way, but, some dealer installed options could be possible.

    They did try a few variants, the R2 and the C109 come to mind.


    But as Judah-9 mentioned, they rake in the money with the M109R and probably see no reason to change that.

    It's pretty rare that...

    I never badmouth them because to each their own, but if someone asks me why I don't get a HD instead, they get the long list of reasons.

    As far as I know,

    There was the clutch fix,

    Moving the tach into the headlight housing/cowl

    Also added a crankcase expansion tank for the breather to reduce oil puking.

    I'd say it's normal.

    Even worst when the engine is still cold.

    You can "blip" the throttle like on a inline 4 cylinder and expect the same reaction.

    As you mentionned, a V-twin (a big one at...

    If money was not a problem, I would have the 9 and probably one or two other bikes, but, having to choose just one, the 9 wins.

    Also, here's the other reason for only having one bike:

    Check the date on the tire.

    Even though it doesn't have a lot of mileage, it could be old and dry.

    Or it could simply be a defect that was going to show up regardless.

    Incorrect maybe for the US, but up here in Canada, all 2010's had the tach in the nacelle.

    Around that time, I also remember hearing that the US had lots of leftovers so maybe they were sold in...

    I thought of that also,

    It would be interesting to see if we could mount a tach back to a newer bike and see if this helps keep the risers straight.

    On the sidewalls I don't see what the problem is.

    Now, I don't do it simply because I don't care that the tires don't shine.

    If I wanted to do it, I would spray into a rag and then apply to the...

    There's too much rubber parts in play.

    I even tried to torque the risers down a little crooked in the other direction, figured it would be ok once it goes "crooked" but it didn't work very long.

    Unfortunately it will go back to being crooked.

    There's something inherently wrong about the design of the risers on the 109.

    The handlebar gets crooked by forcing them straight when going from...

    We'll figure out a way to fix it for good.

    It can only be one of 2 things. Either the rubber we discussed, or the round one that goes through the triple three.

    As Sneikz mentioned, get the X-Tre, it will fix that. A little more expensive, but well worth it.

    It gets rid of the timing-retard in the first 3 gears.
