My bike is running great!

I had some serious Fuel injection problems or who knows for sure with 07 S3, traded it in for the 2011. It was running wicked lean, it caused it so surge and was not smooth a lower speeds so a local Triumph dealer loaded a richer map in and it made a huge difference.
I did have clutch problem last fall where it was grabbing when first starting up and that has cleared it self up. I hope gone for good.
I just back from a good ride in 55 deg. weather and the bike is running great, not a hitch.

I put new rubber on it at 4000 miles, I bought Bridgestones S20R.s and they are every bit as good at the Racetechs K3.s at a much cheaper price.. I highly recommend them.

So we mostly get complaints and problems on this site so I just wanted to post something positive for a change.

Love my bike, and I hope it keeps running like it is..
