    D or S Mode on DCT bikes

    S, always. The shudder at 40 mph in 6th gear drives me bonkers otherwise.

    Shorty brake lever - what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for the comment about the rubber vs nylon washer - I'll keep that in mind from now on. I was using rubber washers to try to make the other ones fit.

    Shorty brake lever - what am I doing wrong?

    So far I've ordered two sets of levers from Ebay, both purported to fit my '15 DCT, and neither fit. They're both too narrow/short/flat in the flat area that the screw goes through - they wobble badly inside the fixed bracket. My fix was a few rubber washers on either side to snug them up...

    WTB short windscreen and tail tidy

    Simple, looking for a short windscreen and a tail tidy. My bike didn't come with an OEM windscreen, just a super-tall Puig which I took off immediately, so not looking for amazing wind resistance...just something to clean up the front. Also looking for tail tidy. '15 DCT - thanks!

    Super newbie question - forward lean angle and backache/wrist pressure

    This is an excellent point, and a subtle reminder that I've not hit the gym in over a year. Oof. Also, I love your remedy: Ride More. Take two and call you in the morning - got it!

    Super newbie question - forward lean angle and backache/wrist pressure

    Come on, I'm a new rider. Looking cool is Priority #1. ;) It's the reason I buy the pricier gear that fits me well and looks good, instead of the more affordable, clunky stuff. I still like looking cool, but I won't sacrifice my safety for it. My wallet, on the other hand....

    Super newbie question - forward lean angle and backache/wrist pressure

    Hi, I'm 5'9" and not too sure of my inseam, but feel I'm proportional (long legs and torso and arms). RIding the 700x hurts my low back and my wrists/palms. I've done showkey's seat mod, but feel it can be raised even higher as I am still sliding forward slightly. I find myself mostly...

    Bought a 2015 DCT with 10k miles and unknown history. What should I do first?

    Thanks, all! It's been super fun so far! Took an extended ride last night, and boy, THAT SEAT HAS GOT TO GO haha. Or at least I need to do the interim mod to get that slope fixed. Couldn't believe what a PITA it was; and I'm a new rider, so I figured it wouldn't bother me because I don't...

    Bought a 2015 DCT with 10k miles and unknown history. What should I do first?

    Title's pretty clear - I have read through a ton of posts and info, and have seen things from valve adjustment to chain tension checking to oil changes to seat mods. Mods aside - those will come in time - what maintenance stuff should I do or check on at this point? The Owner's Manual is...

    Budget Top Loading Saddlebags?

    Did the dividers/nets come with your bags? I've been wondering about finding dividers/nets/little bags for the "frunk" to keep things organized.
