The hard part is coming ... It's what in the ECU that really matters ...

Request-consider posting smaller pictures. It's a pain to scroll around to see what you are talking about. The perspective is so large it is sometimes not evident. Especially on a mobile device. Thanks.

DS Fairing...Worth it???

I'll probably get my fingers slapped for reposting this...but here it goes.

Fairing on the KTM 690R Enduro - is it worth it? Pro's & Cons
Would you do it again? Is it worth the money? What do you gain? Does it provide any more real wind protection than a windshield? What do you lose?

I'm looking at the cheaper on on KTMtwins..

Thanks for the input - PM's are welcome ;)
Tony

Here is my present setup with my own version of a deflector that some other companys make...(ind. velcro holds it on)
How would an Adventure type fairing compare? Besides look better

Looks interesting for street/highway riding I guess. I'd break it off in an afternoon in the woods though.

Yeah the deflector is held on with industrial velcro...so it can be removed in about 10 secs

I'm wondering how an "Adventure" type fairing would compare for wind protection etc..

But worry not, I have a solid background (well ... years ago) at programing computers (C++, Fortran, ADA, Forth, Assembler, Basic), and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC, Omron, Modicon, Telemecanic, Allen Bradley, Siemens) . What is happening into an ECU is far lower level then that, and certainly not Chinese to me. I understand pretty well that this particular ECU, you are not really programming it. You download a firmware to the Bosch controller (this is the program in fact). Then you punch parameters and tables. There lies the pudding and the pain from what i've seen so far.

Each and every time someone starts a project with an ECU at the very moment the crowd starts to salivate, the project falls for whatever reason starting from "no more time", "no more resources", all the way to "Jesus !!! This is too complicated !!!" It does not seem to be anything linear in those tables. Combustion chambers is evidently a field of expertise very creative at generating unexplanable exceptions.

I'm very curious at your project. And eager to here more.

Clever idea with the velcro! I have the smaller screen that is on your bike and that is good enough for me.
