Er6f Im now on my 4th er6
the first I covered 14k miles no trouble at all
the second 16k miles
the third 14k
to date 11k with ABS (best thing since sliced bread) Im now due for another one soon
all this in 2 years makes me a bit of a expert . Im on the road most days all weathers so reliability has to be good
Its a good bike apart from the seat its so thin it hurts so I had mine customised to 3ins thick dream on .
horns are pathetic so had twin electric high & low now even truckers hear them ( an essential peice of equipment ) it wakes up dozy car drivers who change lanes without looking.
Lights need to have double dip, double head available
Requires gear indicater on clock (when we get excited forget which gear we are in)
Mirrors need to be larger (all I can see are half my arm's )
tank need's to be larger 15.5 ltrs (reserve comes on at 13 ltrs used ) so its a bit tight on distance
Speedo read's 10% out not very good
The ignition switch need's to be resited when you have Sat Nav and heated grip its difficult to get at .
Its got heated grips /rear chain lub /top box and panniers.
Goes extreamly well (It's the bike Triumph should have made) returns at 70mph 60+mpg
and if you want really hot speed 7k on the rev counter wow!!!!
Little vibration ,good paint , lousey back light (It's Hidden) teriffic indicators ,Bright as day light, rear brake tends to grab then locks (but dos'nt with ABS) .Easy to maintain .Plateing on Fittings subject to ?.
2nd bike rear brake switch failed
Only trouble so far 3rd bike rear wheel bearing's collapsed .
4th machine wireing harrnes shorted under tank left me with no rear lights (had to use hazzard warning to keep going) Exhaust pipe broke on joint to silencer (noisy)
So all in all it's a good bike dose everything you ask of it will hold 80 all day (pity they are not going to make a 4 cyl in the same vain.that would be brill)
