Great ride
« on: May 19, 2013, 08:54:25 PM »
Truly a grat ride ! Was in for first service , kinda pricy !
One thing I have noticed and told tech about is at parking lot speeds and when bike is stationary and one depresses front suspension there is a knocking sound , quite noticeable ! Dealer says its the anti dive feature on the bike ... It's a tad annoying ... Any other patrons have this knocking sound in front suspension ...?   :821:
Happy Queens birthday weekend from Canada , at least that's what we are celebrating this long weekend ...  :821:
Live long , ride hard and prosper ...!

if i am going slow and apply brake, i too hear a knocking sound, it sounds like a .5" steel ball rolling forward and hitting a fiberglass wall. 1500 miles, got used to it.

No, I haven't. It is very consistant, occurs just about the time I come to a complete stop. Again like something was in the pannier or top case. But there isn't.
With the issues I have had with my Trophy, that was the least of my concerns. Unfortunately, my dealer is 1100 miles away. I take it to a local dealer. Long Story!

There is the sound of the storage compartment opening every time you come to a stop. It opens when the bike does under a certain speed and locks after going that speed.
