I had a great ride out today the pegs feel good , very natural. I seemed to be much better balanced when attacking hills. only problem I had was I  adjusted the back brake down to much so the lever touched the frame before the brake caught. So I backed it off a bit. This means the brake pedal is to high, so Iíll have to look at it this week. Nothing really!
Anyway bike feels good!

Hey burner, does your 500 flame out at all?  Mine has done it a few times and usually on some sort of creek crossing or dip through a valley.  Its quite annoying.

Hi
No my bike has run fine
 Iím second owner , it has 1300 miles and about 65 hours, a bit of stalling in slow stuff when I first got the bike , but that was just getting used to the bike .
Not been on the bike for a few weeks busy with work.
Maybe someone else can help

I'm taking back to the dealer for diagnostics.  Oil is contaminated with excess fuel, backfires/flames out too often, and has a very bad stumble when I snap throttle from idle to WOT with no load.  Oil level keeps rising.  Fuel consumption is far too much as well.  18 miles today and used nearly a 1/4 tank.

I only get about 50miles before the fuel light comes on.
They are heavy on fuel.
Good luck

It should not smell like gasoline (petrol).  Mine reaks of it.  Just called local dealer, they said bring it in no problem.  Their guess is it has very old mapping.
