Hi all. I got my Vitpilen 701 last night, 1300 miles on the clock. Riding it into work today and when accelerating in 1st gear it seems to cut out or have no fuel, I clutch in a d go to second gear and it doesn’t do it. Did the same thing 3 times and never in any other gear.
Great forum by the way, hope I can contribute in the future
If you accidentally touch the gear lever it can activate the quick shifter. Shifting from low revs into the next higher gear and the engine will stall. Adjust the gear lever according to the owners manual.
It happened to me several times in second gear at roundabouts. Talked to the dealer and he had it with his demo bike when doing wheelies. After adjusting the gear lever it never happened again. Good luck! I would also adjust all other parts at the same time to your size, boots and riding position. You will appreciate it on longer journeys!
