Thanks guys - I knew it would be complex!

I live in Perth WA and for 90% of the time we have beautiful dry roads; however, when it rains they turn to oilly slickness. Not fun at all!

I just installed one of these (the long version) and did a quick test run. Conclusion, the bike runs much smoother from the get go. I can go around roundabouts in 2nd without having to use the clutch or ride like a madman
The pesty lean range between 3k and 4k seems to have vanished, the pull is much stronger. All in all the engine just runs smoother at lower revs and seems to have gained some extra punch when accelerating. A 43 Euro's well spend, best addition to the bike so far.

Regarding installation: it comes with a sheet of install instructions in english, dutch and french.
Although some of the images do not resemble the megamoto and instead of only having to remove the left side panels you also have to remove the other side and raise the back-end of the tank to get access to the plug that you need to switch. I just stuck a pair of pliers between the tank and the frame, the slack in the fuelline is just enough to do this.
Then its a matter of unplugging the connector from the airbox, plugging the one from the cable in the airbox and connect the two remaining plugs. I then brought the temp. thingy to the front and tied it to one of the upper frame tubes.

About a ten minute job when you know what I had to find out.

Cheers
Jeroen

I fitted one of these to my F800R, ten minute fit, definite improvement in running, and the fuel consumption has improved by about 10%. I must admit I was sceptical for the price, but it does seem to do what it says.

hmmm...this is something I am going to consider
I´m not so sure about the connection of the lambda sensors though, that looks rather strange to say the least.

Not bad looking at all, but I still like my Remus system better visually.

Stock Exhaust

Anyone have a stock pipe lying around that you would part with? I placed a ding in mine and am interested in staying with the stock setup if anyone wants to part with one. Thanks

Hiya,

Is the blue on the rims powdercoated or painted?

How big is the ding? You'd be amazed at what a paintless dent removal place can do to tortured metal.

how to: drill the tank

Just have finished this job myself, thought I might share it with those considering to do it themself.

Pro's: I refuell 13 liter now instead of 11 something, rang increases by 30-40 km .
Con's: Remeber: after a complete refuell do not get lazy and stop for a drink: refuell and leave your MM standing in the sun is not longer a smart option. Fuell may expand. No problems after refuell and ride along even in 30+ degrees celsius .

step by step:
remove sheet
remove site pannels left and right,
remove middle pannel
remove tank cover
remove carbon tank pannel
place tank "nek" on the tank.
cover the tank opening to prevent dirt/metal going into the fuel
drill the hole's
(tip start with a small drill, 5 mm below the nek rim, then increase it size just a little bit).

Has anyone tried a different air height in the forks other than the stock 80mm?

I am thinking of starting at 120mm and then topping off the fluid incrementally until I am happy.
