Then you need a new exhaust system, polished and ported head, cam profile adjustments, titanium bolts, carbon wheels, lightweight chain conversion and a supercharger

I can reliably inform you getting rid of a bike and mods is financially more beneficial than getting rid of a wife. Return for investment the bike is a clear winner (lol)

You also don’t have to take your bike out for dinner before you can ride it (giggle)

Talked to the main man today. He's said £50 for the Dyno and also he would probably do 8 or 9 runs getting all throttle positions and see what it's doing. He's not worried about the brown soot either but he said if you wanted a map then buy a power commander and then it it fully mapped for my bike. I dont want to do that to be honest quite happy with what I got anyway. Prob be next week i would guess he said jist give him a heads up and then he'd fit it in

Dyno booked in for tomorrow!!

Also refilled oil fully synthetic oil

Pics



Cold

3 min manufacture test - 3 min idol then 3 min cool down - BS in my opinion - shows nothing yes I know there's the reconmmended amount in there 2.5lt

Then when hot to 105 °C - 15 mins idol - with 15 - 20 min cool down was the same level after 7 mins

Then hot with a 10 Min pretty hard run with a 30 Min cool down - unsure why it went quite so high as this though

But alot happier now! Not over filled like last time and actually looks a lot cleaner than last time - which leads me to believe, yes I must of had a lot of old oil still sitting in the sump!ImageImageImageImage

Dyno done this morning

Found out it's running lean

Running lean lower down on speed but high up seems to be not as bad and levels out. He is unsure if that could damage the engine and he was unsure how it is standard so he didn't feel comfortable commenting on that but he did say if it was going to damage the bike he recogn it would of already been damaged by now

Unsure if you guys can see but on air/ fuel ratio it has a red dashed line at approx 13 - he said it should be running around that number but as you can see mine is approx 15, highest 16 and then levelled out at approx 14 - unsure what the numbers actually are though

BHP - Best Run - 127/128


Had a lot of runs to be fair you could tell he was trying all different throttle positions.

Torque- the Dyno had a hissy fit and didn't register it correctly!

Think I'd be thinking about getting that flashed.

Also, have you changed your gearing, looks to be hitting the limiter at around 150?

Unsure what do could get it flashed and to be honest dont really have the dosh to do that either.

I haven't changed anything - don't think anything has changed for gearing but I maybe wrong.

Your bike should be good for around 170, so shouldn't be hitting the limiter (theoretically) until around 185. Looks like someone has changed the gearing, which is a good thing unless you want to go over 150. Or maybe the Dyno is out.

Geniunely have no idea. It feels great to me to be honest. I dont want to go above 150 anyway it's mainly road riding it does anyway.

How much does an ecu flash cost do you know?

Lowering the gearing is one of the best mods you can do and the first thing I normally do when I get a new bike. Don't think I've been over 150 on the track, never mind the road.

I had my ECU flashed last December, think it was about £200 quid.
