Current ride: xb12ss
Location: Dunfermline
Well got my XB12Ss about 3 weeks ago and have done about 400 Miles now. Absolutely fantastic.
The only thing thats bothering me is that it seems to be running rough at low speeds in first. I have now put in the expensive unleaded (the 99 stuff) and it seems to be better. Should I be using this fuel all the time?
Also the fans seems to be on a hell of a lot, is this normal or am I not riding fast enough :D
And when I first start it up in the garage the bike vibrates alot causing the bike to move backwards in the garage????? this stops when warm. again normal??

Cheers,

Yes, for a new bike. Get over 5k miles and it will start to reduce.

No. Vibrating and moving backwards are perfectly normal but it should do that all the time rather than only when cold. Are you sure that the engine is still running? :lol:
