    Hi, just installed this weekend manual cct on my Dero. The bike feels smoother at idle but rolling it seems a struggle a little or could be just placebo I dont know. Should I turn off 1/4 on the mcct? will be need to put the engine at TDC? cheers

    Hi mates, its true the blue ones are faster :-) , but Im planing to change the rear sprocket to a 42 tooth for better fuel consumption on my 2002 Dero. Anyone has experience with this setup (16/42) for regular and touring ride? cheers

    Hello Friends anyone installed 55 Watt fog lights on the dero ? 2004+ ? i feel but didnt really check that this might be too much on the generated power and could result on battery not receiving enough charge..just guess didn't check for figures any experience with that ? thanks

    Got a XL1000va-5 'Dero and the speedo sensor has died, found a replacement off the 'net but struggling to remove the left hand bolt from the old one. Is there an easy way to do it?

    Currently holidaying in northwest Sardinia, and saw 7 big 'Dero's of various ages yesterday within a couple of hours. Must be a really popular bike ovet here?

    Found this website whilst trawling the net at work- www.motorcycleinfo.calsic.com It's American, but there is a load of interesting stuff on it. They even stock a few bits for the Dero, including screens of various sizes.

    Hi all, any tips would be most welcome. I swapped my sat nav mount from the old to the new dero, only to find out that the sat nav does not recharge while mounted on the bike.....connections to the battery checked and seem to be ok. Would it be the deck itself .....? Grazie mille

    Out on the dero this evening and my indicators started to play up. The flash frequency doubled. I thought I had a blown bulb, they`re fine front and rear.

    I'm looking at getting a 5 speed varadero and I keeping seeing things like 'could do with an extra gear'. What revs do they do at 90-95mph? Is the lack of a sixth gear really a problem? cheers rob
