Good questions guys, thanks. My bike runs in open loop mode with the CO2 pot and tan (I think) cat code plug, so no O2 sensor issues. I checked the plug wires at the head and they were both dry,...

Oilhead hesitates/stumbles in the rain

My 95 R1100GS stumbles when riding in heavy rain. I know others have had this issue, I wanted to see what people have done to solve it. It seems like blocking the water from getting in or wrapping...

I found the PLX to be everything I needed for carb tuning. I'm not sure if it has the programmability to do EFI tuning though, as Roger said.

It's primitive camping up there, no reservations. I hope we don't have to fight too hard for a spot but it probably will be crowded.

My wideband kit is from PLX devices. The sensor is a Bosch LSU 4.2. It's a fairly inexpensive kit, but I had good luck tuning with it on my carbureted KTM.

Do you have a power commander, or just the CO pot? Your AFR curve looks a bit different from mine. You're way rich at idle like me, but you don't lean out on the top end. Any exhaust mods?
