2019 KQ 750 or 500 - how many miles/kms and hours do you have

Hi all, I wanted to see how many Miles/kms and hours you guys have racked up on your 2019 machines so far and what issues or quirks you’ve experienced.

I think there is only 1 thread so far where owners are experiencing a clock reset issue (not keeping time).

My KQ has 2146kms (1333 miles) and 109hrs since I started riding it in May of this year .
No issues yet and still loving the ride.

11.5 hours, 135 miles. 2019 750 w/ps

I like the ride, I like the pull and the thump of the big single, I moved the bars forward a bit and loosened up the brake levers a bit, Comfortable ride. Seat reminds me of my 03 ltz400.
Stock tires so, they pretty much suck, will be replacing them soon. considering same size tires on all 4 corners.
front suspension is a bit mushy, hasn't bottomed so I give some of that to the stock tires, plan to click the front shocks up a notch to compensate. This is my first cv machine so learning to "float" the clutches is a bit of a learning curve,
Clock is screwy.
I fricken hate the intake knock noise and plan on adding some internal baffling to the air cleaner cover to try and knock that down, interested in any ideas some might have to deal with this.
Overall I like this bike and happy with the purchase.

What do you mean.. float the clutches? The wet clutch has to be fully engaged or you're going to wear it out really quickly.. they are expensive.. and about 4 hrs labour to change out.

Intake knock.. not sure what that is either..

I've got an 05 700.. had it since new... with 14000 km of hard riding and am on the original wet clutch and just changed the belt.. old was was still in spec but I got a crazy deal on a new OEM belt and am keeping the orig as a spare..

Thanks for your input Rotorhead!
Nice you made some personal adjustments, everyone should.
Yeah, the 2nd position factory preload setting on stock tires were way to mushy for my liking , I bottomed the front several times , I found the 4th position to be perfect at all 4 corners for me, the suspension overall is decent KYB brand . Since I blew out 1 rear tire about 3 weeks , I upgraded to HTRs and had to drop the preload back to 3 and I will try level 2 soon. The HTR tires are night and day over stock the atv IRS and ride is greatly improved.
Suzuki CVT, like Yamaha’s, is the best in the business , they are both constant belt pressure type unlike other OEMs pinch type(like my older BF 750).
Can’t say I hear much a knock, maybe a little but none at all when in motion.
you have a screwy clock eh, I would def take it back and have the dealer figure it out. I do not have this issue , from day 1 it’s maintained the time I set , even after 10days sitting.

That’s what I’m talkin bout Kenora! I‘m loving my KQ CVT. The throttle control with the constant tension is amazing. I’m looking forward to less maintenance on my KQ and the CVT system. I put a lot KMs/miles yearly. By the time I was done for the season, my old BF 750 CVT required adjustment of the ‘deflection’ and cleaning of the sheaves to keep her optimal. This is common in all pinch type CVT configurations. Most ppl either don’t do this or just don’t know (the dealer does &#128527.

Ya I won't be taking it back to the dealer for a screwy clock or maintenance. At twenty hours I will strip off the plastic and go at it with a torque wrench, fresh oil filter, replace gear oil in difs, tidy up a couple things. valve lash does not need to be checked yet.

No? Why wouldn’t you take it back and use your warranty? Is the dealer far away? the KQ ain’t cheap and on a new machine I expect everything to work, even the clock and who knows what it could lead to later on when your warranty is done. I dunno, that’s just me I guess.
Yes, that’s another thing I love about the KQ, the design allows for easy DIY maintenance.
Speaking of which, I like how Suzuki carries 1 oil that can be used for the front diff and the rear wet brake diff. (ECSTAR Gear and Wet Brake oil) instead having to buy 2 separate oils.

I would take it back to the dealer for major issue or maybe a recall. For a non operational issue like a clock I will wait and see what the fix is.
I am interested in knowing what is under the plastic, then I will determine what spares I need to have. Fuel pump, ignition etc.

You shouldn't have to touch the valves for years.
At 1100 hrs and 14000 km my 05 KQ 700 have never been touched.. the Vinson's get a valve adjustment every other year or so..totally different valave systems though.

And yes unless it's a long drive take it back for warranty work.. it could bite you on the ass later if you dont.. just sayin...

Ya I don't have an 05' so I can't speak to it, just sayin...

Valve lash is an adjustment performed by a human, it can be not correct. At 1200 miles or 200 hours I will check valve lash as recommended by the owners manual maintenance schedule unless I start hearing tappet noise.
