You are correct.  I was thinking about the Shinko Raven's that I put on my Kawasaki C-14.   They cost much less than the Verge 2's.  The Raven rear tire isn't available in 190/55/17  but is available in 190/50/17 which the Kawasaki uses - go figure.

I did get a good deal on the Verge 2's that I bought last year at the end of the season when there are close-out sales on and then store them until there are needed.

I've been running Shinko's for some time now and have been pretty satisfied with them.  I was happy with the set of  Raven's I had on my C-14 Concours.

Most of my riding is on the slab, BTW.
That was a quick edit !

Probably not, that's how I felt at the time  :034:

I had already provided the answer you were asking for again,
as well as a lot of other information that I thought would have been useful.  :164:

I won't waste any more of my time on this Topic.

Would it have really hurt so much to have simply written the answer instead of a silly little rant???

Enjoy your new bike, I love mine and use it on the commute to Winsford so will probably see you in Cheshire at some point!
The Shinko Verge 2X costs about the same as the Dunlop Roadsmart 3.  It would be interesting to hear how many miles you get.

The pair of RS 3s that I just replaced on my FJR lasted 10,000 miles.  About half of that was high-speed highway riding in summer heat, including a trip from Boston to La Crosse, around Lake Superior, and return to Boston (4,400 miles).  The tires weren't in great shape by the time I got home but they were still rideable.

I know this will sound stupid but have you checked the "kill switch" position?  The other things it may be is the "fall detection sensor" and that should show up in a fault code, OR did you buy it new or pre owned and did it come with 1 or 2 keys.  If it was pre owned and one of the keys had been lost and replaced then cut to fit but never had it's transponder programmed into the bike it won't do anything except open the luggage and the fuel tank and seat release.

Very difficult to diagnose remotely and without knowing what you may have checked.

These are all worth checking :

On the right side of the bike, check if the Negative terminal
of the battery has Continuity to the Ground point.

At the Fuseboxes on the left side of the bike, pull a fuse out
and check if there is 12 volts on one side of the fuse terminal.

Access the multi plug under the left loudspeaker which connects the Ignition Switch
and check for 12 volts at the White wire with Blue stripe.

And those small parts are.........the shortening plug and ????  The dealer has said they have found some grips but havent said if its a complete kit or not. I have asked for clarification of  what they have bought BUT it would help if I also knew what was needed for a complete fit.
