Life is better on a R1
I've been trying to read as much as possible from these 93 pages - what I had gathered was that this was an emissions issue, that the test was run at 5500 rpm and up in 2nd gear. Having the bike run in a lean state with a slow RPM increase could pass easier than in normal situations. This is how KTM passed, with lean jetting. Sorry if this is not the case, I didn't read anything to contradict that, but I certainly could have missed it unintentionally.ohlarikd, while I agree with you on most points, you are wrong in the assumption that Yamaha did this on purpose. There is a programing error with the interaction between all of the gadgetry. I do believe that Yamaha only found about about it after the bikes were delivered. Their failure to fix the problem is where Yamaha went wrong, and it will cost them loyal customers such as myself. By calling it a characteristic of the bike and not a safety problem, they are simply utlizing a legal loophole, for a reason why they should not fix the bike. It is all BS, just like them doing nothing about the broken pegs, except to cover them under warranty. Look at Ducati, and their recalls, and you will see a company willing to stand behind what they sell.
