The bike sounds like it is running at 1800 RPM.

I noticed it the first time I set on the bike. I knew I only had a couble of riding days left when I drove the 300 miles to pickup the bike from the dealer. I thought it would be a simple ideal adjustment once I got the bike home.

After a few days of looking for a ideal adjusting screw, I came to the conclusion that it just was not on the bike. However, I only had a few days left to ride. So,I did RIDE...

The bike has been just sitting in the drive for almost a month how. I am now to the point that with the aid of a walker I can start the bike. However, still a few months from riding.

I was hoping the fix was a simple reprograming of the computer. However, TMac99 has a shop manual, and reprograming does not look like the fix. Looks like I will be ordering a shop manual so as I can figure this little problem out.
