I’ve had the following issues with my Stradale:Hi there,
I'm going to look at one of these this weekend. Very low miles, 2015 model in white, for a really good price.
However, looking at the photos it appears to have the dash from a Rivale. There's no fuel gauge to the left hand side. I was led to believe all Stradales had a fuel gauge? Seems odd, if not, but the seller doesn't seem to know anything about this.
My other question is, how easy are these bikes to work on? I'll be coming from a 1st generation Multistrada which is an absolute pain to work on, so i really want to be assured this bike has been put together in a manner which makes it easy to maintain.
Oxy. Sensor fault, replaced under warranty, easy to install.
Electronic throttle, replaced under warranty by dealer
Lf rear turn signal 3/6 leds out, lense glued on and difficult to pry off- haven’t fixed or replaced. May go with an aftermarket piece.
Fuel gage very erratic. Sometimes flashes, sometimes reserve light actually works but last ride it showed almost full but really was almost empty. Not sure how it functions, maybe sensor being affected by ethanol. Tank made by Acerbis but owner’s manual or warning label says to use ethanol free gas! And the bike is suppose to be a US model?!?!
All and all I like the bike. It’s unique, handles well, goes like hell and has a lot interesting features that actually work. I like the four different engine management settings although figuring out how to change them can be a challenge. There’s a setting for heated grips but don’t think this bike has them. The clutchless quick shift function works well but I’m so use to using the clutch that I leave it off. Not sure about downshifting, there’s no blipping of throttle and I don’t like jamming it down to the next gear without matching the revs a bit. If you’ve ever taken an abused trans apart you’ll understand why it’s important.
