  1. You might want to check the 1/4 turn plastic screw in the bottom photo showing the access cover on the right lower fairing, It looks like it is not secure, the long edge in the center of the plastic 1/4 turn screw should be facing up and down. If you want to remove that cover remember after removing that 1/4 turn screw you have to slid the access panel up and then pull it outwards to release it from the plastic slots in the lower fairing.
  2. Two up ride today 174 miles 3.629 gallons of fuel for an average of 47.94 MPG.
  3. The reason they recommend premium fuel is two fold, one for knock prevention, it allows them to provide the best tune for the engine and two premium fuel burning slower actually will assist in cooling the engine some.
  4. Glad to hear you did not get any damage, this mirrors the one journalist group ride where on of the riders dropped a Star Venture in the parking lot, they as well said the bike tipped over to about 45 degrees and rested on the black plastic along the bottom of the saddle bag and the front crash bar and resulting in no damage, from the sounds of it your tip over was not a controlled tip over sitting on the bike but rather the bike falling over so it is good news that the system Yamaha designed does protect the motorcycle in a worst case tip over which you suffered.
  5. I have never received a thumb drive from Yamaha or the dealer. I have an 8 GB Toshiba thumb drive that I have set up to use. It might help if those links were put in a sticky thread or tech page so they can be easily found and used for future owners.
