New (to me) K13GT - new guy saying "hey" and some questions about bike
Hey all, I learned to ride in 2008 and picked up a new F800ST back then, and finally felt ready to upgrade to a K13GT. Found a perfect one up in Frederick MD and flew up to buy and ride it home yesterday. I love it! It's got just over 11k miles and all the factory options, even has LoJack and 49L rear topcase installed.
On the way home, in my limited 300 mile experience on the bike so far, I noticed that the engine was very smooth, except when you close the throttle very slightly, like say to slow down by a MPH or two. Doing so introduced a noticeable vibration. Is this common?
Also, I found the saddle VERY soft so I'll be looking for a replacement, but noticed the rear section of the driver's saddle was more firm than the front section by the tank - weird!
I'll probably be a regular here - nice to find a K specific board!
