Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd sign up to this after going out and buying a brand new fury which is being delivered tomorrow.

Anything I need to keep my eye

The bike's nice right out of the crate...enjoy it for a bit as-is. There's plenty of aftermarket mods available to customize it to your liking. Welcome from Gainesville, Florida, mate.
Thanks for the info mate much appreciated 👍

Welcome! Does anyone know if Honda is putting a more powerful battery in the newer bikes? If not, the stock battery at only 230 CCA is too wimpy and will give you the dreaded hot engine restart issue whereby the bike won't restart after the engine heats up. I would highly recommend replacing the battery with a good quality Lithium battery.

Here's a link to the issue and thanks to @Kbuskill for finding the solution to the problem! I bought the EarthX ETX36C, pricey, but it's worth every cent. No more hot engine restart problems.

Ride like your invisible and don't pass too many service stations when you're on long trips :)

Welcome aboard! Yeah, there's good advice here. Don't feel bad if the seat gets to you, many of us ended up changing the stock seat. Also, if you are longing for a 6th gear, we all feel it too.

We have a google map of the Fury Nation, you can see it from the link above my signature picture. We are filling it with willing members, ride locations, hangouts, routes, etc. If you WANT, we can add you on there as well, just need a zip code (no addresses on the web!), and we can get it done. If you don't want on there that's fine too, check it out and see if anyone is nearby!

Watch out on the roads, you can't trust anyone, and it gets worse every year. Enjoy!

Hey mate, welcome to the club. I got mine new in 2015, best advice I can give you is as follows:

1. Ride it before you change it.
2. Harden the rear shock up - those roads round Warrington are going to cause you to bottom out on bends and smack the frame rails - trust me on this.
3. If you do go for custom exhaust (which you will!), watch out for two things - grounding on right handers and the little recessed allen bolt sitting in the swing arm just in front of the rear spindle. If you cover that with the exhaust it may mean you have to take the exhaust off to get the back wheel off....

Welcome from Denver. Every time I see this thread title I think to myself 'What kind of idiot is jumping on his Fury?'...
