    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    I'm at 12,000 km now on my V85TT and I've been having this issue since day one. I've complained to the dealer many times. I'm going on a short ride this week with the dealership manager, who's a friend of mine, so he can get direct insight of the issue at hand. But for me, it isn't occasional...

    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    Yes, sorry I took a while to update this thread, I actually forgot I made this thread. But here's the update. Yes, they changed the clutch under warranty. No, it did not resolve the issue. The symptoms mentioned previously are still apparent. Also, I've been complaining about the transmission...

    V85TT updates for 2021

    I honestly don't know how they would do anything that would involve implementation to 1st Gen bikes and reducing RPM at highway speeds, I just don't want to buy an entire transmission to make that happen :D Right, tubed wheels is what I meant.

    V85TT updates for 2021

    Am I the only one that doesn't mind tube wheels? Should I care :speechless::D? May you kindly elaborate about the re-camming and why you wish they hadn't? And yes, that over-drive is waaay overdue. They should implement it somehow so that even the 1st Gen V85TTs can have them replaced or...

    V85TT updates for 2021

    Do you think these changes can be implemented on the 1st gen V85TTs? I don't mind not having 2 new riding modes, but the increase in torque would be nice to have, if it's very noticeable.

    V85TT Mods Thread

    So I had a shop CNC machine a backplate and had a back rest installed. The bolts are very industrial, I know. I'll be getting some allen bolts that are more flush, maybe black powder coat the backplate and the backrest adapter, or just keep them as it is, I haven't decided yet. The backplate is...

    GTM V85TT FUEL KIT - FINALLY

    I feel your pain. I live in Qatar and regularly commute with a motorcycle, even during the Summer, which can get up to 55C (131F) during extreme heat waves, if not more. The cat doesn't help one bit during the hot season. Even during our winter season, which is slightly similar to California...

    GTM V85TT Exhaust NOW WITH DYNO RUN

    So I'm quite bored with the way the V85TT sounds when it's choked from that oven they call a catalytic convertor, and I want to install a Y-pipe and let that engine exhale with ease. Would it be detrimental to the engine where it could come to the point that an engine failure is just around the...

    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    So, I have an update for those that are interested. First of all, I've seen a slight increase in complaints around several forums of the V85TT clutch, which might not mean much or it could be just a coincidence. Nevertheless, here are the results. After several weeks of waiting with the whole...

    aftermarket exhausts

    It's very good to be honest. I remapped using Todd's flash tool, and haven't complained since, I would suggest you go with that route. The exhaust sounds nice, and looks the way I want my bike to, so I have no issues from an aesthetics or sound point of view. No complaints whatsoever from the...

    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    No slipping, by weak I mean it just doesn't grab 'properly'. There is a delay between throttle input and clutch engagement, and you can really feel it during deceleration and when taking off from a stop. It just doesn't impose confidence especially at lower RPM, and I know this isn't something...

    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    So, I have two clips uploaded and was wondering if you can hear what I am hearing from the clutch? What could it be? Shot bearing?

    Why did you reinstall it if I may ask, since you mentioned you liked it without the beak.

    V85TT Mods Thread

    I actually did notice some difference in height between the low and regular seat, and I IMMEDIATELY changed it back to the stock seat after just one ride with the low seat. I hated the ergonomics of the seating position so I changed it back. I can't flat foot with the stock seat but with the...

    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    I did check the adjustment. The clutch is fine, it's just not helpful off-road imo

    V85TT Clutch Issue / Failure

    Does anyone know of any other alternative options for the V85TT clutch? I feel like the clutch is very weak , especially for offroading, and I just wanted to know if there are other options besides OEM for the V85TT clutch.

    First V85TT Issue in the World?

    I feel your pain. Like I mentioned, I own a V7II and never encountered any overheating problems even at 48+C weather (120~+F) and I NEVER turned my bike off at traffic lights. The V85 though is a different story. Like I mentioned before, I believe what we are experiencing is an issue that may...

    2020 V7 III New Model Announcement

    I will only consider trading in or selling my V7 Racer if they insert the v85 engine in the V7 frame. Other than that, I feel like it is useless to think about a V7 at its current state if you already own one.
