    Most Odyssey batteries come with a 2 year warranty. I know my PC680 did. I would contact the place you bought it and advise them that you think it's defective. Having been on a tender and still...

    Funny, I short shift below 4k rpm most of the time and I'm happy in 6th gear at any RPM 3500+. My bike seems to like it just fine and I rack up a lot of miles that way. I only get to 4000+ rpm if...

    Don, I agree with you on those points. However, I have found a change in the current RepROM (for camheads and hexhead) from the previous one (hexheads only).

    As I said before, BMW is now...

    I think it's clear that BMW wants you to buy and use their "special formula." I just have a hard time buying into that especially when in their older service manual for hexheads it simply specified...

    The owner's manual makes no mention of fluids for the gearbox or FD.

    Considering I only need slightly more than a liter (1060ccs to be precise) for 24k of riding, it's really not a big deal. I...

    Well, according to the RepROM, the gear oil is Castrol SAF-XO. It doesn't even specify the weight or any other details or specs. Nowhere in the user's manual does it state what type of...

    Hey. You can all thank me for reviving this oil thread. I'm coming up to my first 12k service for my '13 RT and I'm getting my fluids together.

    In summary from this thread, it seems the ONLY oil...

    An "adventure" bike designed for being entirely on road. Interesting. They should make it into a full on supermoto.

    That's pretty common at least on the hex and camhead bikes, but only if the oil was low. I suppose the same could happen if the wetheads have a high oil sensor and you had been on a hill and tripped...

    Just out of curiosity, how did you check the oil level after you got the warning light? Also, what do you mean when you say "slightly high?" If it's too high, the entire sight oval will be full of...

    My non-expert advice would be to do a little more spirited riding. Run it through the gears all the way to 7-8k then decelerate the same way, punching down the gears to get some good engine braking....

    That's crazy. I had no idea that this went on. I just did a ride in with Rick in January and had a great experience. He is a nice guy and a great craftsman. I enjoyed watching him work and I love...

    Just out of curiousity, how have you been breaking in the bike so far? I just got mine in December and did the "ride it like you stole it" technique as advised from my dealer. Let it fully warm up,...

    Don, the whole swingarm must come off as the shaft won't fit through the end of it. Thankfully it's not that hard to take the whole swingarm off.

    To the OP, the driveshaft you have is the same...

    My friend had the same thing happen. Once it's burned up, it's hard to tell if there was rust inside the joints. I remember seeing a little rust before when we had serviced it though.

    Roadside with Progressive is worthless if you aren't willing to go to the nearest shop. If you want to go to the nearest dealer, you will pay dearly. Cost me $280 for a 30 mile transport. Fun...
