I need your help I bought this damn V back in march and now closing in on ten thousand miles and there is something grossly wrong. It don't shutter, stutter, chutter, hickup, glitch or do anything else like most of the posters imply they should. I change the damn oil and filter every 1500 miles, keep the tires aired up, the chain oiled and adjusted,and just ride it, it gets 37 to 51 mpg depending on how I ride it, What could I be doing wrong?? When do you think it will start acting normal? Please! Help!

Damn, that is not even close to funny. Maybe because it has already been posted, maybe not here though.

I don't know your specific circumstances but I'd bet it's because you never used pliers to adjust a screw.

Wheel its not supposed to be funny its serious I am concerned that I may have purchased an abnormal Vee. Heck I want to spend money and time correcting problems so I will be with the norm its tough being an outsider. but based on your apparent lack of humor I doubt you would understand.
Cap you are correct but I have used pliers to remove some of the damn things I was displeased with or that had seized and the head had stripped out during removal using a proper screw driver.

I am sure everything will be normal after the warranty expires.

It HAS to be because it is an 06!!!!! ALL problems were fixed, and the 1000 is now perfect.:rolleyes: They did all this just in time, so that they can discontinue it next year. AINT LIFE GRAND, OWNING A GRAND!!!!

Great post by the way!!!!;)

I am glad that you are wasting both your money and oil, by changing it at 1500 mile intervals, it is great for the enviroment and the economy. This site would be boring if we all had a splendid bike like yours....what is the fun in that? Do you actually ride that beast, cause I can rack up 1500 miles pretty quick. Poor Stromette would be changing oil and filter about every week!!!!!:eek:

Just remember - the 650 will be here when you get tired of the problems. No rush.

BTW - as Big B said, the 650 is more flickable.

:twisted:
