  1. If you do decide to come down to AZ for the 191 ride let me know. I'm only a couple hours from there. Are you still in AZ? If so I'll have to get a hold of you next time we ride up to Alpine.
  2. Holy shit I saw you twice on 191 and then again in 78. Lol. I was riding my H2 SX SE up there with some friends. I saw the picture of your bike on here a couple days later. Just read your blog and confirmed it was you. Small world. If i would have know it was you I would have tried to stop and chat real quick.

    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    How far is your dad's pole barn from you. If he has the room and is willing to let you store the trailer there in the winter why not during the summer as well? If you're only using it a couple times a year it shouldn't be an issue to go pick it up.

    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    That was me. I didn't have a problem getting it onto hitch carrier. But trying to strap it down by myself it ended up falling off. I think it would be hard to find a hitch for the car that will carry the weight. Even on my tahoe the weight of the bike on the hitch was enough to effect the steering. It caused the front wheels to feel really light. I went out and bought a trailer shortly afterwards. They have small trailers that can store upright against a wall that will work. Or you can rent a pickup truck for a day and haul the bike in the bed.

    Fed up with sena

    There is a gap between the holes and the styrofoam as if there are channels or something between the inner shell similar to the ventilation channels. But I don't believe that these holes are here for ventilation because they have a foam insert that sits in them from the factory. Why would they do something that would increase wind noise right beside your ears? I don't think they are there for weight savings because they are only located in the 2 speaker cut outs. My speakers fit and work fine in mine. The spacers are already stuck in with the adhesive that comes with them so there is no reason for me to tear them out just to try it. But Steve Butters doesn't have anything stuck in there at this point so it couldn't hurt him to try it out. Especially since the wire for the 20S speaker is on the back half of the speaker and is what gets in the way when trying to push tree speaker into the cut out.

    Can you explain why there are holes in the bottom of the speaker cut out instead of something for the velcro to attach to? It doesn't really show in the picture but they are raised up and there is a little gap between the holes and the styrofoam.

    It took me awhile to get it figured out. I'm curious how it would sound to point the speakers outwards towards the shell of the helmet. The rf1200 has holes in the speaker recess like that might be the way to do it.

    I have a rf 1200 with a Sena 20S evo. It came with a bunch of foam pads with an adhesive on one side and soft velcro on the other. I trimmed the foam pad down to a smaller diameter so it fit in the speaker recess better without touching the edges. I stuck that in the recess and mount the speakers to it. They fit fine.

    600 mile service & warranty

    As long as the modification isn't directly linked to the warranty issue you'll be fine. If your that worried about it hold on to the stock parts.

    600 mile service & warranty

    I never said you had to have the dealer do the service. If you just change the oil and filter as the third post in this thread says to do and you ignore all other adjustments and inspections it won't be hard to prove you didn't properly maintain the bike if you don't know what all is involved in the service. For example: If the service you are doing calls for an inspection and adjustment of a throttle cable but you just change the oil and filter because you didn't get the service manual with the specs on the throttle cable. Now down the road the throttle cable snaps under the warranty period (I know not a likely scenario but it's an easy hypothetical scenario). You take it in to get it repaired under warranty. The dealership asks where you've been taking it to get the scheduled service done because they know you haven't been paying them to do it. You say you've been doing the service yourself. They ask what all you did for the 3,000 mile service (we'll say this is the service the throttle cable was supposed to be inspected and adjusted on). You say I changed the oil and filter. That's failure to properly maintain the bike. If you're going to do the maintenance yourself make sure 1. You can do it properly, 2. You have the tools to do it or your willing to get them and 3. That you know what all is involved in the service.

    Get the service manual and if you can do the work yourself and have all required tools do it yourself and keep the receipts (especially for the manual and any specialty tools). Just make sure you can explain everything you did for the service. That way if a warranty issue comes up you can prove you actually did the service. If the first service includes inspection or adjustment of a component and that component fails under warranty and you tell them you just changed the oil and filter they can deny your warranty claim based on improper maintenance. But if you have the service manual that outlines the inspection you can tell them how it was done properly and they can't deny it.
  12. Here is a video that you can hear the supercharger chirping when the tuner lets off of the gas.
  13. Yeah it has up and down quick shifting with auto blip, launch control, heated grips and cruise control among other things. Anthony was a lot of help. We were contacting him pretty much all day well into the evening.
  14. They were pretty helpful we ran it to some confusing issues with the bike since its the first H2 SX SE the tuner has seen. So we were sending lots of messages back and forth to them. I didn't add any extra parts or anything from the "race tools" kit just used their software to de-restrict the bike and change the timing and fueling. The bike has a factory quick shifter and launch control so the only add on they really offer at this point is the pit lane limiter and the warm up mode.
  15. Awesome thanks. When is it warm enough to ride around up there without cold weather gear? We're going to be living out of saddlebags for the trip so the less extra gear we bring the better. Let me know what you think of the area.
