    Unfortunately, no... I dropped it off and they did the service in the background. The one thing that I did learn from the process is that it's messy and, if not done properly, it will make your bike...

    60-95 mph roll-on is very good on the 900/Rally (video below), and maintaining anything in that range is effortless (assuming that you have a windscreen and a cruise control). The freeway duty can be...

    Agreed, the owner/operator manual is very vague on the maintenance intervals, and the info is spread throughout the manual instead of being condensed into a traditional table format. Another thing to...

    Well, I had to satisfy my curiosity about the Rally's top speed, so I did a quick top speed run Monday morning. Here is the result: 105 indicated, 102 GPS. I was headed into a slight head wind, so...

    I purchased parking brake lock from the dealer, so apparently I'll need the bolts as well... hopefully they have those in stock already!

    Yeah, I got the same song and dance from my dealer and from BRP. I've been riding/racing karts, cars, and street bikes for 34+ years and I know an alignment issue when I feel one. I raced 3-wheelers...

    I commute on the Ryker for work sometimes, and I've noticed that I get DBS (dirty butt syndrome) from the water kicking up through the rear splash tray behind the seat. If I'm wearing rain gear, then...

    I own the Rally and I chose it because of the adjustable suspension and included MAX mount. The tire choices for the 16" front are limited right now, but the 15" rear is a common size that should be...

    And wind/weather conditions... particularly for smaller-displacement machines. A 15 MPH headwind on a smaller motorcycle can make a 25-30% impact on fuel economy at highway speeds.

    :agree:

    Good call on reducing the front spring preload. The Rally's front shocks don't have enough rebound damping (non-adjustable), so the wheel hop can be a real nuisance. I'm reducing my front...

    Body roll can induce inside wheel lift because of weight/bias transfer. In the Ryker's case, the IMU senses that and kicks in the nanny much earlier than necessary. The stiffer bar minimizes the...

    The Ryker makes me feel like I'm in my 20's again... hopefully my driving record won't start feeling the same way. ;) This thing is probably going to get me into trouble.
