To each his own.... I had no more than a couple hundred miles on mine, and disabled the quick shifter.  Seems smoother and more natural now, where it was kind of mushy and vague with the quick shifter enabled.

But let's get real, folks.... this ain't a track bike - why would you even want a quick shifter?

Well I tried the reset procedure today and I can't say I felt much if any difference. I'm new to the bike so still getting used to how the QS operates but it certainly isn't as consistently smooth as the one I had on the 1250 GSA. Bizarrely a couple of times it felt at its smoothest at relatively low revs and fairly small throttle opening.  At higher revs it often changes up with a definite mechanical-feeling clunk from the gearbox as the next gear engages. Not something I will use all the time for sure but handy for high speed overtakes.

I can also feel the famous sponginess in the gear shifter but that is something I will quickly get used to. Its not ideal but not really an issue for me. Overall I'm loving the bike. Super smooth, comfortable and much more nimble than the GSA, easier to move around in the garage and it almost puts itself on the main stand! How easy is that?

Quick question re the heated grips. The manual says there are 3 levels but isn't that clear on how you move between them. My understanding is that when you first push the button, after the amber flashes, the grips are at 100% heat. Is this correct and if so how do you select a lower heating level? I have read the handbook section but I'm still confused!
Cheers, Steve
All I know is when i press the heat button it will either flash once, twice, or three times in quick succession. It will do this 3 or 4 times then stay solid. one quick flash is low, two quick flashes is medium, and three quick flashes is high. If you want to change it I think you long press the power button. If you shut the bike off, the grip heat stays on your last setting when you turn it back on.

To change setting you must press the button when the light is on and solid.
From off, press the button. The green flashes 3 times (high). When it is solid press the button again. The green flashes 2 times (medium). When it is solid press again. The green flashes once (low). Finally, when it is solid press again and it will flash 3 times.
And so on.

BTW the level of the heated grips should be on the main display. Indicator on the grips is barely visible when you driving fast :)

Agreed. They are also very difficult to use when you have mounted muffs, that is, just when you need them most.

Thanks for the info guys. Can't say I've noticed the 'heated grips on' indicator on the dash!

There isn't one .... I think nocny was suggesting that there ought to be a display on the dash    :169:   


We have wondered off Topic now

has anyone else tried another make of similar bike with QS fitted who can offer a comparison  with the Versys system  ?
