Now that I have some time with the I thought I would do a bit of a review on it.


Hand Controls There what you’d and have all the buttons although you can they will eventually you trouble.

*Start Button, become tempermental where it to be pushed in a certain spot.

Beam, can be annoying and a little to dip down at times with on.

*Indicator-Horn-Flasher- Emergency Kill, all well and have had no issues.

its heavy but feel is ok. It could do some adjustment as engagement is at the begining of the ….

*Accelerator, originally I had planned to the ratio and I still might since installing the PowerTronic it be as aggressive as originally planned. In trim its way to long and causes you to grab for full throttle.

Display — I like the and have no problems with it at a quick glance. There been some comments the small RPM tree being to read but I figure if your looking at it then you shouldnt be on it.

One with it is the condensation that underneath the glass protector it can make it impossible to read and is that needs to be sorted It also blinds you when the sun it.

Foot Controls — A lot of play in the gear selector The linkage rod seems lightweight and is that will be replaced than later.

Suspension This is one area that requires attention, the rear is and Im reminded of replacing my shocks in my old 77 ute, while the fronts so soft after a while you get roughly 60 to 80mm travel you jump on the front brakes. undecided which way im going but a few ideas being thrown

I have parts to replace the masters and caliper but the 80mm front is me at the moment.

Wiring — and wire quality is good and has a few connections Ive never seen but I like. The downfall is theres a amount of it and its routed and mounted in weird places. It does its supposed to do but a quality custom would go a long way in cleaning the up and removing some weight.

Nuts and Bolts — you be needing a Torx kit for the 390, much every nut and bolt is you will find down local Bolt shop. I this is a good thing as I usally be able to get out of trouble.

— The seat is pretty and the first day or two will leave you a sore but if you ride all the time it soon be forgotten. Having that Im on the look out for the Ergo even thou I ride chance I get.

Lights — Low beam can be poor in the unlit areas the high beam is pretty Will look at changing in the future but are not something that addressing.

Tyres — So far I been happy with the except under heavy breaking when the rear to get light very fast and in the wet can occasionally become doughy little feedback from the A bit more questioning has got me thinking its temp regarding the fronts in the wet as handle differently at the different I travel through.


not much I can say about the mechanical of things as everything works and as it should, I. [Read More ]
