You could get the ECU released and get it set up how you want. Lol when I went from my Tiger to the Super Tenere the engine braking was so severe it felt like you were going over the bars !. Had it remapped straight away it felt almost unrideable.

That's a good shout. But he does say it freewheels ok so maybe not. But always worth checking anyway.

Did you check the brakes are  not binding after a ride, they can start to bind with use then free up as they cool. I would also check all the running gear, is the chain too tight, wheel bearings ok, tires  pressures  correct ?

Morning all you lovely people. Checked the chain at the w/end and was a tad slack so tightened it.

I always find the old chain tinkering a bit of a pain.Maybe someone could enlighten me. There is always a tight spot - Why as this always puts my mind in doubt when you are setting the tension as the tight spot can seem really tight when the slackest part is now in the correct tension measurements. The chain is not that old either.

Chains should be adjusted at the tight spot. If you set at the slack it means that you get a 'jerk' at the tight spot that can damage sprockets and bearings.
