My front brake feels softer at the lever than it should do. A quick bleed didn't improve things. Is this common? On a previous AN400X I got a braided hose made up by Harris but that didn't help much either.

Does anyone know if any of the Suzuki (or other) adjustable levers works on the K3 brake master cylinders? I'm pretty sure it's the same design as several other Suzukis.

Is the accessory socket in the dash glove compartment switched with the ignition? I'm thinking of adding heated grips and want to wire them into a supply that is switched.

Any thoughts on the best 3rd party windscreen for the AN400K3?

What bulb type are the headlight bulbs? H4? Are there likely to be any problems with heat or electrical drain from using standard car 55W/60W bulbs instead of 35W/35W?

I'd be careful where you wire it in. There have been cases on the forum where a blown fuse keeps the Burgman from starting.

There's several good reports on the Givi. An interesting screen is the ERmax. The only screen I personally would not buy is the Gustafsson. Customer service is too important to me and several forum members have had very negative experiences. Clearview has stated they'll offer windscreens for the 400 at the end of this year. I'm holding out for the Clearview since it'll be available in multiple sizes and have the option for the vent.

With solid disks any misalignment will knock back the pistons causing excessive lever movement you could check for run out on the disks first.
The accessory socket is not switched so one of the easiest ways of wiring in the heated grips is via the front pilot light, assuming you don’t use the parking lights (does anyone) and leave the grips on. I found the Daytona grips cheap and hotter than most and under half the factory price.
I have the Givi screen with 4 inches off the top it works very well I’m 5 10. Great improvement over the stock in turbulence and protection.
You can fit H4 55/60 bulbs if you bend the two tabs at the base down flat, best to upgrade the main lighting fuses to 15amp one in low and high circuits. Osram Silver Vision or Philips Vision Plus are the best light bulbs see tests in.

I have been running for a year like this with the heated grips and 55/60 bulbs commuting every weekday no problem. The heat will not affect the plastic unless you go for the 100w bulbs, which I have heard will melt the plastic and you will also be over the alternators limit. :wink:
