New Diavel rider in Western Mass

Hey everyone. Finally took the plunge and bought a 2013 Diavel Red Carbon - after test riding one 6 years ago (have a 2001 FZ1 and 2013 Aprilia RSV4 ). OMG - Diavel is the PERFECT bike Only regret is not buying it sooner. ABSOLUTELY in love with this thing. Now just picking the upgrade projects. Bent the shift lever to hell earlier today on a turn (barely any lean angle on this bike with stock rearsets lol) - woodcraft rearsets on order. Fixed the annoying on/off button by slapping a glue felt pad on the switch

Fun side story - riding it home in the rain (2hr trip) - accelerate hard let off gas fast - gasoline spraying like CRAZY from under after market gas cap. Holy shit scared me the first time. Backed off rode it home - seller texts me receipt boston riverside ducati replaced and "tested" (mind you for 400+ $$ not including part) - WTF LOL. i take it apart - they took the gasket and put it into totally wrong spot!!! Haha. Gasket by now over stretched and ripped apart partially by bolts - shorten it - put it in right spot - no more gas spray. Takeaway? 1) Guy owned a diavel and never had this issue he said - how was he riding it?? Never got on the gas??? and 2) 125/hour "testing" by certified tech???? ROFL

Any other western Mass riders here??

Nice bike. Good luck with it. At least you don't have the shitty Fuel Sensor problems of the Gen II.
