Glad to see that DNA is taking care of their customers.
My Hyper has been to the dealer in Bangkok, Thailand 3 times now after covering 1,000km and the only explanation they gave me was that I am using the throttle incorrectly, I'm not supposed to blip the throttle when downshifting. Thus is the reason my bike has a pronounced metal to metal knocking sound, almost like piston slap.
However, I was not able to replicate the sounds on 2 other hyper's at the service center nor was I able to reproduce it on the demo 821 monster they had.
I was also given an explanation on how a L-Twin works and that blipping the throttle is bad for an L-Twin. I have a S2R 1000 that I've used for 8 years and despite being an air cooled engine with cable throttle, I never had any issues riding it the same way.
I am now reluctant to ride my hyper until I can get a hold of someone that would be willing to investigate and diagnose the real issue with the bike.
