Hello just downsized in size and weight also to a single bike i had a BMW 1200 GS and a Yamaha XT600e and got a 6 month old White T7 with 2000 on the clock in September i was finding  at 240 KG the GS hard to handle around the garage  the T7  is around 40 kg lighter and much easier to handle stationary in traffic.

I am getting  220 miles per tank  for 14.5 ltrs , the OEM Pirelli scorpions are good but the front gets unstable on joints in the road surface and  road markings any recommendations for an alternative for mainly road use will be appreciated.

Welcome .

awesome bike, have you tried letting the front tyre down to 27 psi as converts it, much plusher and stable ride, i run mine At 25 and totally better in every way.

ref fuel usage thats great, my low fuel light comes on at around 160 ish  with 7 litres left so easy do another 50 miles after that my arse goes a bit like a yodelling starfish.

when does your fuel light come on?

Hello i'll try the tyre pressure if that don't work i'll  fit a Metzler tourance

the low fuel comes on about the same if the seat is giving you trouble have a look at cool covers it spreads the load a bit more and a lot cheaper than a seat.
