So, last weekend I finally finished the break-in period, had a chance to take the bike to the track, compare it to S1000RR HP4, and one of the F3 675's from our local championship.
So far, I have mixed impressions - the chassis is good, needs some adjustments, but so far I was unable to make it perform better than stock geometry. The fueling is really tricky, though I haven't tried upgrading it to the latest firmware yet. The quickshifter is not working at all - I understand nobody's got it working yet, though it doesn't bother me very much.
The main problem that concerns me is really noisy clutch, and strong vibrations coming from the engine after 9000 rpm - is this normal for those bikes, or should I investigate what causes the vibrations? Right now my hands go numb very quickly after 200kmh - the vibrations are so hard I find it difficult to work the brake lever. Also, the clutch feels harsh when engaging - as if something rattles around in the clutch pack.
I understand there's a number of new F4RR owners on this forum - can you confirm whether this is normal?

Well, I got my F4 RR 3 weeks ago and the first impression wasn't any good, apart from more power compares to F4 R that I just traded-in, ah and quick shifter was actually working, but not with downshifts.

After the first 200 km I noticed increasing vibrations starting above 7k. When I looked back I remember some vibrations in F4 R but only around and 6k after 8k everything was gone.

The biggest surprise was the throttle response. The whole Ride-By-Wire system doesn't perform very well.
Today I went for a spin having only 540km on the clock and the clutch completely failed. I had to push it back home for 2km... That's it. I said to myself that as much as I love my new toy I won't be enjoying just by looking at her. Tomorrow I'm going to order a HP4.

Is the dealer just going to take it back?

They took it today and now I need to wait for them to check the bike and write the report to mv Australia. Last Saturday I paid a deposit for a HP4 but I would need to wait 6 months for delivery, that's sucks... I'm still considering of getting my previous F4R back from the dealer.
