Please check your oil, brake fluid and tire pressure before riding.Following the procedure in the manual I found the oil was well below the add line , tire pressure way off. So much for dealer prep. Was warm in Western Pa today (50degrees) got about 52 miles on it .

Yup, my tires were both soft, about 25 psi each after I took delivery two months ago. Supposed to be 36 and 40 psi. respectively. Think I'll check them again right now!

This a thing you do every other day as a standard & all ways after a service check over every thing you can NOT trust other people with your life???

Amen to that. Thats why I have been doing all my own mechanical and service work on my cars/bikes for the last 30 years. Dont get on it until I do my check list.

Checked Most Everything Before Left the Dealer Lot even got a couple strange looks although the Service Manager said Find anything let me know quick, I said don't worry I will .. Tires might have been 1or 2 lbs low but wasn't too concerned about that, now if was 5-6 lbs or more would have spoke up .. Still Wish had better visibility on the Coolant Level but learning to live with that ..

Same issue for me Jay. I gained a little better visibility by removing my seat and shining my LED flashlight through top of container angling downward.

My battery was dead when it arrived to CO with the shipping guy. I had to charge for one hour. Things happen, but I was just as excited when I rode home. Tires & oil were fine, many years of riding made it a norm for me to check. Good post to remind others.

It helps to do it in low light increases visibility...
