    Hey man, I just got a Vitpilen 401 a couple weeks ago too!

    I’m from North Vancouver.

    Nice mirrors, I need to swap out the stock ones soon.

     

    Have you had any issues with stalling? My engine has cut out a few times now with the clutch level pulled. Seems to happen when I accelerate hard and then brake quickly (usually while shifting from 3rd to 2nd).

    I have another friend in vancouver who has a vit as well, we should link up before the season ends. instagram handle is @itsnichoo dm me for details! I have had stalling before but not enough to deem it an issue at this time. I think the clutch grab point is a lot further out than my drz400sm so it takes some getting used to, was driving around last night and i played with the leaver adjuster. leave it in 4 i didnt like any other setting.

    I am local to you as well and purchased one Vitpilen and one Svartpilen.   The one bike does have that stalling issue and mine has issue other guy I spoke with had with his fuel gauge not working correct. From first day it was full tank and it said I was half full. It’s all over the map and other forums  I have found others with the same issue. I will get it fixed under warranty.  If you have not already done some searching your can upgrade your handlebars to the ABM kit out of Europe for 300 Euros.  A mod I am thinking of doing instead of just buying the parts for the Svartpilen.  As I am guessing you got the same promo deal of $3499 CAD (US $2550 aprx)  plus Freight and PDI/ fee’s yada yada.  Out the door aprx $5150 CAD.  Great deal at half price 🙂 for a 2019.. Any other issues you have had so far other than mirrors that go right in the trash once home.

    I had the stalling issue for first time this week at 910km

    Clutch slowly lost grip till engine stalled. Came back to normal after a few tries.

    Heya you guys @Navjit @itsnicho @Curse @RealisticBullFrog from Vancouver. Would any of you be interested in trading their white plastics for black Svart ones? Either way, we should organize a VanCity Vitpilen/Svartpilen ride this summer, eh! Let me know. Let’s get that VancouverPilen group going: VanCity401 or Vanpilens?
