If you were really unlucky and hit a decent sized bump or carried a pillion then they would hit the exhausts so hard they would shear the lugs of the swing arm and you'd have to replace it and two damaged pipes .

    The handbook states that although threaded lugs are there for bobbins you shouldn't ride with them fitted .
    I did ask about that at the dealers and he pretty much said the same. He then showed me how to use an ABBA stand to raise the bike from the centre of the bike - what a great bit of kit.

    I have the 2014 model and get between 160-200 miles to the tank depending on "enthusiasm"
    What we need are clearly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!
