Fuel isnt cheap in the UK either. What sort of car is it? Full tilt is where the fun is. I've got a V8 that loves the juice when you give it the berries too. Never mind.My new car has a power button which can be changed anytime
It adds turbo boost and tightens the steering
But in sport mode it returns 11mpg at full tilt
beat that :doh:
This, unfortunately, is the root of most Benelli issues, certainly in the UK. It seems that only the mighty Sir Russ can fettle them properly and that nobody is training the dealers. Now I'll grant that following a converstaion with the mighty one I requested that my fave local mechanic ring him to find out how to fettle the fuelling and that the (very very wet) run home suggests it is running better BUT Bob should already have been taught, surely? it'd make Mr Russ's life much easier too? When we get some better weather and work stop sending me abroad I shall take the trek out for a proper run and hopefiully find out for sure......SIR RUSS did mine as well the difference between the 2 modes is very noticeable button in and its really smooth with a top end kick and more mpg .Button out and she takes off like a thing possessed reminding me of a two stroke power band (the mrs hatted this mode said she felt like she would be fliped off the back ) but she is really thirsty in this mode .Mixed riding and modes gave me max 182 per tank =21.9 litres worst 137 per tank .
I couldnt agree more Ferret. They are certainly the rides you remember the most too. Not always great memories, like freezing ya bollocks off. But getting out of wet cold gear and having a beer with a fire on is brilliant. Its more of an acheivement than a ride.my bikes dont have a say in it ,mind you i did have the tool box fill with water once and she died on me (soaked the relay ) drilled 2 holes its never happened since .Some of our best ride outs have been in the winter months .
