Just got a 2008 400 with 10800mi
I have a honda helix and 3 vtwin bikes and I do all the work on them, this is my first fuel injected bike
I like it so far, more like a cadallac, more motorcyle than scooter. Helix more scooter than motorcycle, very nimble and fast, I put it to 80mph no issues
I got it on the lift for first inspection, front tire is a michelin hoop, rear is a city grip, front has some dry rot, rear brand new, no leaks, oil good, filled tires up to 29 and 33psi
I put 40mi on it so far, here are my questions
I notice that the idle seems slightly erratic, but only slight, possible clogged injector or air filter?
If I take my hands off the wheel the bars will start to shutter, is this an issue with the front being out of balance or could this be some other issue?
I have not inspected the engine, variator or clutch yet, but it seems at low speed, especially on takeoff the rear will kind of shake a bit, clutch issue, belt?
When i give it a fistful, it seems to shutter on he back end then take off, not lightning fast, but seems like it could be, maybe a roller size issue?
IM 5'10" 190 the OEM windshield seems to let air hit me right in the face, should I go with the GIVI D311st?
Panels are intact and clean, but im kind of unhappy with the faded paint, it bugs me, anything I can do to restore or am I going to have to pull the panels and repaint?
I'll take any advice or tips you guys have about this bike, I really dig it thus far
