Question ESA Question

I've read the instruction manual for my 2008 GT several times but am unable to figure out how to adjust the spring load. I can't get out of the damping module. The manual doesn't say how to get it to switch over to the spring load side. I tired it with the bike running in neutral off the stand, on the stand and on the stand with the motor not running. How do I do it?

Also, how do I reset the service date screen?

Thanks,

Dick Wood

Re: ESA Question

Hold down the ESA button for a few seconds and it should switch to pre-load where you can then set for 1-up, 1-up w/luggage, or 2-up w/luggage. As far as resetting the service interval, I know it's in your owners manual, I don't have mine handy at the moment but try looking there again.

Hope this helps.

Initial Success, or Total Failure.

Re: ESA Question

Start the bike, have it in neutral and the sidestand up. Press and hold the ESA button. You'll see a display with a helmet, helmet and bag, or 2 helmets. press the ESA button to cycle through until you get to the setting and let go. sit still for about 10-15 seconds while it finishes the adjustment, designated by the icons going away. Then ride it like you stole it.

Re: ESA Question

Thanks Christopher and David. I guess I didn't hold the ESA button long enough. I just kept cycling through Comfort-Normal-Sport. Just never was able to get it to switch over to the helmets. I try again tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Re: ESA Question

You'll either have to take it to the shop to reset the the service date screen, or do it with a GS-911 that has the newest software.

Thanks Grif, but what's a GS-911 and where do I get one?
