I made bigger holes to take the oil off.


Any idea if they will incorporate these changes into the production model? They look like a good improvement.

Sounds like the early reports of Euro bikes with the Italian reflash.

Glad you like it.

It was 50 degrees here yesterday and I pulled out the FZ1. My daughters boyfriend
was looking for a used bike and I thought I would consider selling it.
I had forgotten what a grin maker that thing is.

Even my wife came out after a few power wheelie runs on the street and said "That's enough!"
I don't know how anyone can own something like this and still have a license. Just pure acceleration.

We were going to all go for a ride today and I woke up to heavy rain. Just as well, I can keep my
license for one more day.

This is Mormon country. Dating age is a very relative concept. (No pun intended)

Cleaning in the garage while the rain continues. I checked the tire pressure
on the Tenere that's been sitting about 4 months. The front was down about
15 lbs with the factory wheel. The rear was down 4 lbs with the Woody's rear
tubeless spoked rim. I was impressed how well they got that wheel to seal.

I don't know but I don't think so for the moment. To do all these changes probably they must modify the old development. Also, I have a smaller oil filter so the new cover doesn't work with the OEM.
And it needs to be properly tested. At the end of this month I'm going to do 3000km in Morocco: good test!!

I would like to try the ST in the sand and show some pics to Pluric. I konw he likes it...

I think your first instinct was the right one. Leave the OEM plastic one on and call it a day. Unless you get a frame mount plate you can potentially be worse off than none at all. The plates that mount to the oil sump actually lower the vunerable parts of the oil pan (the attachment bosses). If you bottom out on an attachment point, the stress concentration is that area, and will push that boss into the pan. Not good.

The new Cycle World has the Armageddon comparison. They said they took the
Tenere in sand. I would have thought that would have ended the ride right then.

Between the Husky TR650, Kawasaki KLR, KTM 990 Adventure Baja, Triumph 800XC
and the Tenere.... the KLR won. Guess I'm covered either way.

See post 15927 for the printouts here:

So what's that, about $100. per hp?

It will roll along at tickover and just pull away smoothly, It revs to the limiter extremely quickly and my God is it quick.
I am getting about 119bhp (8bhp more measured at the rear wheel). It felt similar to the Triumph Explorer I tried a couple of weeks ago (although on the Yam I was 2 up with lots of luggage).

It was activating the TCS in third gear.

There is still a difference between T and S but the bottom end of both is so improved that the difference feels a lot less on the butt dyno. But in all honesty, it is so easy to use now that it makes little difference. I normally use T in town but they are both so similar from low revs that I may just leave it in S.

Sad to say, but it is so nice to ride that it will probably slow me down a bit.

It does feel a bit rich at the bottom end but that may be just me noticing the difference. I have a map switch installed and will play with map 2 to lean the bottom out a bit for economy. I will also play with the Optimiser settings for the closed loop area (applies to Flashed UK spec bikes only).
I have contacted Powercommander and they have told me I can play with the Optimiser to my hearts content, safe in the knowledge that the engine will not be damaged.
Gr8 to hear, Ray!
Sounds like the PCV and ECU reflash combo is the way to go, judging by consistently rave reviews. I have Kee's flash file in my 'bike stuph' folder and a PCV on the way. Still need an AT module to complete the package. The Arrow header has been gathering dust on a shelf, so it's time I got something done.

What are you running for an exhaust?

Wow, that's pretty good if he's still using the cat. I'll be using the Arrow catless header with the stock muffler, so I'm guessing at about a 10hp gain. Too bad there are no dynos in the area.

Are you going to do the tuning yourself?

Resisting stinky bait.... resisting....

Oh hell, call me when it has an actual radiator. Then I'll tell you what's wrong with it, then. A fool and his money are soon parted. Anyone buying a beta model of that, is a fool.
