    TRRS 2020 model

    I saw it in person at the EICMA fair in Milan... It is actually an orangeish kind of red. Looks better when you see it in person!

    250 or 300

    Vertigo spare parts are sooo expensive... You could do that but it would cost an arm and a leg. For a couple of € you can buy a slow action throttle, or have your bike mapped differently.

    Not quite yet but I'm working on it.... The help from this forum is unbeatable!

    Yes, @steviet you are correct. My motorbike had a much bigger problem, which was fixed, several parts were changed under warranty after speaking with the aftersales department in Spain. Now the bike runs almost perfect and I figure it would be "part of the game" to fine tune it to make it run like I think it is the correct way. It's a learning process which I find very interestig and amusing. But you are correct, I should not be forced to buy the tuning device... And I am not :-) It's like a game to me, albeit an expensive one :-( @tcrhino I only lightly spray with Motorex filter oil like I did for the past several years, so I doubt that could be the problem....

    Yes, I've seen the promotional video from Vertigo but that's just that, a promotional video, I was hoping for an instruction manual to come with the device. If that's not the case, you just gave me a very nice tip! Thanks again @lowbrow

    Very interesting. That's the kind of informations I was looking for and couldn't find anywhere. Off I go to spend my 260€ 😂 Thank you @lowbrow

    Hello all, has anyone bought and experimented with the Athena Wificom for 2018/2019 Vertigo? I was thinking about buying the device, as my 2019 Vertical 300 keeps running rich even on dry map, the spark plug gets sooty and overall the bike feels like it's running too rich at high revs (four stroking). Air filter is always clean, tried different new spark plugs, fuel is 100 octane, fresh, 0,5% Motul 800 oil. Dealer says bike is ok, which is 99,5% true, but I was thinking about turning the "carburation " leaner with the Wificom device. Any experience/advice? Thanks in advance!
  8. Perfect! Thanks a lot @tcrhino!!
  9. Yes, I see. The problem is that I don't have a Vertical R handy to disassembly at the moment, that's why I'm asking A picture would really sort me out.
  10. Ok, found it. Thanks! V-1616 breather box How do you figure out how it's fitted inside the airbox?
  11. I can't see the breather box you are talking about. Are you referring to the Vertical R 2019 part list? The Vertigo mechanic says it's normal to shed oil during extreme conditions, but still I would prefer not to get the bike so greasy.... The oil level is as you said, 375 ml which translates into roughly 3/4 up the sight glass...
  12. That's the second option.... I'd have to remove the central gas tank and basically tear half bike apart
  13. Hi all, I have a 2019 Vertigo and for some reason I keep getting a lot of transmission oil from the breather hose to the airbox, and from there the oil drips everywhere, it gets pretty messy. I have heard from a Vertigo mechanic that the new Vertical R has a "oil catcher tank" inside the airbox so that the oil won't get all over the place, but in the Vertical R parts diagram I cannot find the drawing or the part number code.... Can anyone help me out? TIA!
  14. Nah, I really figured out it was mostly just the incredibly rich "wet" map.... Moreover, the 2019 maps use more fuel than the 2018 maps. Yes, a real shame. I also liked my 2014 Ossa.... Whenever I see a rare Ossa at the races, I can't help but stare and feel a little nostalgic. But I'm also happy with my Vertigo!
  15. Wow, I didn't realize there was this different setup. Thanks a lot!
