Don T,

Here's a couple of threads about Question # 4:

dmulk (or any Safari owner)

Is this the same port we capped when we did the Flapper mod?? Just want to be sure. I may get myself a tank for Christmas but I'm a bit leery of the install, it looks plenty complicated. Thanks.

I'm still running the stock air brake/tag holder set up too.

There aren't a lot of dual sports in Miami so I figure the stock look is good for saying, "I was made this way, not 'converted' for street....officer."

I am almost positive that it is, I haven't disconnected my flapper so I just T'd into the line. Safari even provided a straight fitting for those who have disconnected theirs though.

It is that line, I'd just have to have removed my flapper before I would claim to be 100%, so I leave it at "almost positive."

It is a very easy install. I was a bit nervous about it too but it's easy, easy, easy.

The instructions are pretty good and the thread on thumpertalk is helpful too.
http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=796340
Go through the whole thread, I added some pictures of the only part that isn't explained that well- the metal baffle.

Also any of us will chime in if you have any questions.



Did I say that it was an easy install? Just take your time, it pretty much only goes together one way.

By the way - the under seat area is now cleaned up with all the unnecessary parts removed:


As it looks like the O2 sensor will not fit in the FMF (as far as I know the only brand that makes both can and header for the WRR), I think that I'll just get another can with a hole for the sensor and fit it on the std. header - If I do that, can I still use the FMF programmer?

It is the same port.

No need to worry about the install of the Safari tank - it take some time to do, but is pretty straight forward.

Thank you Miami and Don T--- I'm feeling much better about the Safari install.

And Don T-- The resistor trick was easy as pie and works like a charm, or at least so far so good. And I do believe you can use the programmer regardless of the pipe.

Sarah

You can also pick up + or - power from the battery relay.







Nice_Rumble... where'd you tap in the blue relay switch wire? I see it there in your photo but can't tell where its terminated.

Thanks!!

I had the same problem, when i installed my Leo Vince and Power commander. You can remove the O2 sensor, there are no plugs available for the O2 wire. But i removed mine and NO warning light came on. I e mailed Dynojet back in summer about if their commander works in the European WRR models. And they said if there is no warning lights going on, it should be fine. And it is fine, my bike works great wthout the O2 sensor.

If you install an aftermarket exhaust, you allso need to get the fuelling correct with a Power commander, FMF programmer...

Sooo, you can get the FMF pipe too without the hole for the sensor.

From Dynojet they allso said, that a commander should work with the O2 sensor connected. But then the O2 sensor will correct/ruin about 20% of the changes a programmer is trying to do.


Ps. If you choose to get the new PC5, you need hole for the sensor.


About the programmers: I chose the PC3, because it has way more adjusting possibilities than the FMF programmer, which i think can only richen the fuelling. ( there is minus numbers in my fuel map here and there, so... )

Hope this helps.

Don T, if you get a pipe and a commander/... Open up the air box too. Here is what i did to mine. Removed the air box lid completely, to make room for the commander and AIR!!

I snaked the 3CS blue relay trigger wire around under the tip over sensor and out under the left frame rail to the blue rear tail light wire. It is the large blue Posi-Tap with the blue OEM tail light wire running through it.
