Performance question?

1003 Views 9 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  JelmerF
My 2012 S Touring has just under 4K miles now, from the day I got it it sometimes feels like its not performing to its max. When it was new I assumed the ECM was holding it back for break in proposes as the throttle felt disconnected at a certain point.
It was checked for error codes at the 600 mile service and has never thrown a code, some days or run ups it simply amazes with the front wheel hovering off the ground and accelerates like a scalded cat others not so much. Anyone else experience anything like this?

Other fuel makes my bike feel a little different. Not as bad as "not quite up to it" but sort of less smooth. No I don't mean diesel fuel :rolleyes: but if I fill the tank with 98 instead of 95 it runs a bit worse. Sometimes I like to fill it up once and a while with Shell V-Power or some other so called "really-good-for-your-engine-sir" petrol.

Also, I have the feeling it runs better when it colder outside, don't know, like the engine breaths better.

No idea if it all makes sense. But after 22k+ you get to know your bike a little, and notice every little difference.
