  1. Hi My Tracer GT is one year old at the end of this month, and I'm off on a European trip in the June. The bike's been super reliable but I don't like going overseas without breakdown cover. Can anyone suggest a reliable breakdown service for UK and Europe.I've had some poor experiences with the AA but nervous about using the small companies although I hope to never call them! I'll probably go for annual cover. Thanks Vic
  2. No. There wasn’t any before, and it didn’t seem necessary. I checked the bolts after a 150 mile ride, and all seemed ok. vic
  3. Since updating the SC1A to 2.0 firmware I had my first long ride with a mate this weekend. Audio multitasking seemed to work well. I could still hear the intercom while my Garmin was giving navigation guidance. Phone connection via the Garmin still seemed a bit hit and miss. I’ve never really managed to sort it, although I’m fairly certain it’s set up correctly. Vic
  4. @bowlin01 I bought them from motostorm .Was best price including delivery. Vic
  5. I had no issues with the Givi bars on my GT. I think it applied to earlier shipments but seems to be sorted now. Vic
  6. Hi Steve, Hope this helps. I really like them, but hope I don’t get to test them in anger! Looking forward to another ride. Vic
  7. Hi By coincidence I’ve just fitted the same crash bars with no issues. I agree the instructions aren’t great but other posts on this site helped. I did measure each bolt to ensure I was using the right one in each place. The instructions give the size of each bolt and spacer. Looking at your picture, it could be the angle of the photo, but the bolt doesn’t look square to the hole. Could you possibly have cross threaded it? Vic
  8. That’s great. Thanks Vic
  9. I’ve ordered Givi crash bars for my 900GT and before I install them just need to know the correct torque settings for the engine bolts. Can’t find it with a search, so any advice appreciated . Don’t want to lose my engine! Vic
  10. Hi Not sure if this is the correct place for this question but I have a Schuberth C4 Helmet with the SC1 integrated comms. Sena have released a V2 firmware upgrade for the SC1 but I'm struggling to figure out the changes! It does sound louder, and there is a specific pairing option for a GPS. The phone app has several new options, but it's not clear what they all do. Has anyone installed this update and could they enlighten me :) Vic
  11. Thanks Mike. Confirms what I thought. Vic
  12. Hi Mike. Do you know the part number for your tank ring? Vic
  13. I have the Evo Engage with the 110 tank ring and it fits perfectly on my GT. Just ordered a Yamaha Tour bag for longer trips and hoping that will fit too. Should be ok based on great info found on this site.
  14. Thanks Kmev, that's helpful. I have the Engage bag which I like but it's rather small. I need something bigger for longer trips and the Yamaha Tour bag looks good. Vic
  15. Hi Does anyone know if the Yamaha Branded Tour Tank Bag uses the same tank ring as the SW-Motech Evo tank ring. Also, does the bag fit the Tracer GT tank without too large a gap. Thanks for any info. Vic Tank Bag - Tour - YME-FTBAG-TR-01 - Yamaha Motor WWW.YAMAHA-MOTOR.EU Tank Bag - Tour - For your Yamaha Model Name
