What is your oil level like- could be too high? If you get the issue again, try this: - Remove the plugs and then try and crank the motor over on the starter, the motor should free up and turn over faster and faster, don't turn it over too much though only until it sounds a normal speed, now install...

I think the 850 has a cable clutch (my 1150 is hydraulic), if so I would start here with re-adjustment before looking at more expensive options.

I have started to wear my hi-viz now the clocks have gone back (just a normal vest type - no stupid messages!) - On my way home from work I use several un-lit country lanes etc. One thing I have found is that drivers do seem to notice me earlier and move over further if I need to filter (maybe they ...

Take a look at the forum, which covers all XTs including the 750
