With the motorcycle at a standstill, the selected mode is activated after approximately two seconds. The newly selected riding mode is activated as you ride only when the following preconditions are satisfied: Throttle twistgrip in idle position Clutch pulled Following activation of the new riding mode the clock is displayed again. The riding mode set, with the corresponding adaptations of engine characteristics, ABS, ASC and Dynamic ESA, is retained even after the ignition has been switched off. You can deactivate RDC warnings for the Enduro and Enduro Pro riding modes when you want to lower the tyre pressures for off-roading.
It is essential to set spring preload of the rear suspension to suit the load carried by motorcycle. Increase spring preload when the vehicle is heavily loaded and reduce spring preload accordingly when the vehicle is lightly loaded. Using the electronic chassis adjustment Dynamic ESA you can comfortably adapt your motorcycle to the actual vehicle load. Via ride height sensors, Dynamic ESA detects the movements in the chassis and suspension and responds to the same by adjusting the damper valves.
The chassis and suspension will thus be adapted to the characteristics of the terrain. Starting from the basic setting NORMAL, the damping can be made harder (HARD) or softer (SOFT).
