Welcome to this wondeful place. Any photos?
Does have a fuel light, although on a journey like that you will need to plan your fuel stops..Hi there,
Just bought a 2005 Brutale 750 S, rode it back from Christchurch to Auckland (New Zealand) 1100kms of fast twisty roads to shake it down and see if there were any obvious issues.
1. Ran out of gas... got to use the trip meter huh.
I hate to be the one to ask the obvious question: you did check it correctly with the bike completely upright and not on the side stand?2. Engine oil was low - do these bikes burn oil? I can't see any leaks.
This doesn't sound right. Sounds like it may have water in it? Does the bike have a service history? I'd be checking and changing both of the brake fluids also...3. Clutch weak - engages just off the handlebar.
I opened up the reservoir to check the fluid level, level looks good but the fluid is very viscous (thick) like engine oil - this does not look like Dot4 Brand Fluid which is very thin.
I topped up with Dot4 and the consistency was quite different and it did not seem to mix (like oil and water), I have drained all the fluid and will replace - any suggestions?
