Howdy folks,

Just purchased my 2012, Red/White with TC and QS and Post Recall Bike.

Coming from 2 x R1 (Big Bang) and CBR, I must say, I absolutely love this bike and looking forward to many thousand kilometers and plenty track days.

One gripe I have with the bike is the up-shifting on the QS and false neutrals. Generally the gearbox is not a 'solid' as my otherbikes. So its either me or I am not shifting correctly. In any case, I have ordered the FactoryPro's upgrade spring to see if that fixes the issue.

Great Forum. Keep up the good work.

Razz

Welcome mate and congratulations on the new bike. I too have a few issues with mishifts and false neutrals. Apart from that and a little heat issues under the legs on hot days, it is hard to fault this bike. Where in Aus are you from?

Sydney mate. Yeah, totally wrapped! Done two track days so far and its bad a*ss on steroids.

If you thought this is hot, don't sit on the Big Bang R1 in a hot summer day!

Hopefully the stiffer spring with fix the issue.

For sure... Love the old Robertson run up and then down Kiama/Jamberoo.

We also do North each weekend, so will PM you when we heading south.

Thanks for the welcome HP4.

Yeah, agreed. I was on this forum long before I decided to purchase the S1000, so I did my homework here and so glad I did
