    Default Belt saver mode???

    Just read something on Facebook regarding "belt saver mode". Can anyone shed light on this re: Ryker?

    Inquiring minds need to know.

    Tips from the German Ryker riders on the "belt saving mode": accelerate gently for the first few kilometres, do not drive at the same speed permanently

    Default Interesting....🤔

    On the ryker it would be the cvt belt. If it has a mode it should be in the owners manual. Probably take it easy on start ups for a while...

    You mean that's not like a light switch, on or off

    Follow the break in procedure in the manual and you will be fine.

    No switch, just rules to protect the CVT. Maybe the "Eco on mode" can be something like a "belt saver mode".
