Gday from Sydney/Australia

Hello! My name is Wwiinngg and thought I'd quickly introduce myself - I'm an engineer from Sydney/Australia and I just picked up a brand new AWS 959

It's still being broken in but I'm loving most minutes of it! However I don't love the:
- heat
- mirrors not folding so I can't filter properly
- gigantic number plate holder but I get that's a legal requirement for all manufacturers
- low speed jerkiness
Looks like everyone has the same complaints and I think it's already time for 1199 mirrors, the ducatispacers and their heat sheilding kit? lol

Otherwise I'm happy to be a member here and I've already combed through the forum for info before buying. Here it is at Warragamba dam

Welcome!

The fix for the heat is to go faster!!

The "jerkiness" you feel is standard issue for the Ducati twins. You might try messing with your rider aid settings. IE: sport vs race mode - engine brake settings.

I usually drop down to Sport mode through traffic, then back to Race once I hit the back roads. Makes a pretty big difference.

Welcome to the AWS family and congrats!
You might want to sit further back in the seat to resolve the “heat issue” - adjust your riding position. Possibly look into the Race Seat also.

Yep from the research I've already got the fat comfort seat installed and I found doing a little legspread every now and then whilst moving helps. Might give those "heat out" or neopreme shorts a go too...
