To do it the engine must be cold and preferably somewhere with good ventilation.

During the process one MUST NOT TOUCH THE THROTTLE. Change in throttle position during the procedure will cancel it.

Turn on the engine and let it idle until the cooling fan turns on. Then wait an additional 12 mins. Turn off the bike once the time has passed.

Thatís all!

Next time you start up the bike youíll enjoy a smoother ride with no start up issues or snatchy throttle

Thank you very much! I'll give it a shot when I put the Arrow on.

I really want to do it. But afraid I may upset some neighbors.

What is the definition of a "cold bike"? If a bike hasn't been ridden in 60 minutes, is that enough to be considered "cold"? I prefer riding to a desolate area to do this.

Riding it like I financed it.

One final thing that I forgot to mention. After turning off, wait for the fax machine sounds to stop before turning back on.

Thatís a good question. The times Iíve done the reset have been after parking the bike overnight. Iím guessing as long as youíre at zero or one bar on startup it should be good.

Townhouses. Each house is about 5ft apart from each other.

I have a 2Bros slip on. I found it really really loud. Ended up purchasing the baffle for it. It's much quieter now, but I still don't want to upset anyone.

Is it really only 12 minutes? Or does the 12 minute countdown begin once the radiator fan comes on? I've read different things on the forum...but thought the 12 min countdown begins once the fan kicks in.

12 mins start after fan turns on.

frustrated !

The suns out, it is warm and dry. So why has the new RS been in the garage since the weekend?
When I got back from the last ride, it just went over 500 miles and there was a message "next service -3 miles"
So the 1st service is booked for Monday comming.
I am not sure I can wait that long !!!

Same here. Rained 2 weekends in a row. Such a cold May we're having.

With every bike I've own, I installed led lights for night time riding. I always leave the lights on white (non blinking). And as an even bigger dork, I have a high viz vest I put on top of my jacket once it gets dark.

I don't know if the lights or the high viz vest makes any difference, but I just want to be as visible as possible at night.

My other bikes simply have lights that are one color and have a manual on/off switch that gets double taped to the bike.

This is the first time I've installed lights that can strobe, be dimmable, have 15+ colors, etc all controlled by a key fob. I hope it'll be as reliable/durable as the old school lights.

Here's a video of the lights after I installed them. I'm pretty sure using the strobe mode will get one pulled over real quick and possibly get in a lot of trouble for "impersonating a police officer".
