bike broken in this weekend. it tracks straight :)

settings recommended by others are spot on

- front shocks at 5 max
- front tires at 18
- rear tires at 28
- shock at one less then max (RT-S Model)

now to get the 600 miles on to get the svc done and ride it normally after that ...

what did you get with your RT? just the keys, spare tumbler lock for trailer, manual in the frunk? i was missing the ipod and audio input cables. Dealer is swapping the outdoor larger cover for the more practical travel cover. anything else?

so far minor issues

- rt fog light not connected during setup
- front elec latch release not working
- the biggest one last weekend the lock came out of rear trunk and jammed the rear trunk and side bags locked ... dealer had it reopened in 10 mins... seems a known issue the earlier tumblers pull out of the rear trunk ...
- frunk not even when latched (having dealer adjust hinge to level frunk cover) seems a known issue

just got bike back from dealer, everything fixed! except uneven frunk.

they said can-am said a repair kit coming out in a month to fix issue :)

electric release worked (go figure)
fog light wired wrong at factory fixed now
lock removed and reinstalled works now :cool:

so pretty happy so far ... now 500 more miles and get the 600 mile svc done!
