  • New things learned

    Seems there are always new things I did not know about the 2018. A few days back I pushed the start button and had not turned the ignition on. When I pushed the start the ignition turned on and then the second time I pushed it engine started.

    If you hold the start button down for a few seconds it will start the bike as well no need for a second push

      I just tried this and the ignition cycled, waited for 10 sec or so but it required a second press of the starter to fire.

        Do you have a DCT or Manual mine is DCT since my bike is in storage for the winter I can't try it again until the spring
        also maybe it requires the kickstand to be up as well not sure

              I have a 6-speed and I just went out and started it by pulling the front brake and holding the start button. It went through its normal cycle then started. I actually like this better being you don't have the lights on long at all. Thanks!
