Frozen pipe coffee is the best.

This time of the year the weather down this way can suddenly turn from nice to frozen, unlike those gloating people up in QLD. I was wondering if you would get caught.and you did

Hard to forget really.

What lights are those, mounted beneath the headlight?
Those are Piaa LP530 leds, bought them on Amazon for under $200 but they are also sold by Yamaha as an official accessory.

Unlike most led driving lights, the leds in these are aimed backward toward a reflector puts out a very nicely aimed beam so they can be run at full power with the low beams without bothering oncoming traffic. Really nice lighting, can't see the stock low beam at all when they're on and people are always checking them out as I ride by so they definitely make the bike more conspicuous.

Added the 1100 leds to supplement the high beams. Using a Skene dimmer set at 20 percent on low beams, going to 100 percent when the high beams are used.

After a rare bath. (She deserved it though, after raising the ante yet again over the weekend)

Hit the road Friday with brand new Ohlins front and rear. Then stopping off at AF1 for a drive-in Gen2 flash. (Ed is amazing. AF1 is amazing.)

I dubbed this bike the XT1200ZR on the other forum.

Like to see the press do a shootout with the usual suspects on a Tenere with proper suspension and fueling. It's quite a leap forward.

I know I'm bragging, but this thing just RIPS. And extremely composed when pushing it.

We did that in front of my loft in the city.

Did you get a new reflash at the same time or the update?
When I spoke with AF-1 they couldn't do the Gen 2 update. So I sent mine to
ECUnleashed for the update. I shouldn't complain because they don't charge for it
but their customer service SUCKS. Not a single response to emails, no number to call.
Tracking confirmation it was delivered a while ago and not a word of what's going on.

AF-1 was fantastic to work with.

Cry ECUnleashed & AF-1...

I was up there at AF-1 when Snakebitten got his flash...

He got a *NEW* Gen 2 flash. His bike was completely stock, ECU-wise, and he had never had the Gen 1 flash.

And you're right, Pluric - Ed at AF-1 cannot do the Gen 1 to Gen 2 *update* re-flash. Perhaps I shouldn't phrase it quite that way... Actually he could do a Gen 2 flash to an ECU that had a Gen 1 flash, but he'd have to charge full price for it - full-pop retail - just like you were buying it the first time...

Why, you may ask?

Well, he and I had a long time about that. You see, he "buys" each flash file from ECUnleashed, and they won't sell him one without a VIN, etc. It's not like he gets to re-use the same Gen 2 flash file (or even Gen 1) over and over. Instead, each one is sold on a separate invoice. Believe me, it makes Ed far from happy, and he thinks it makes no sense whatsoever that ECUnleashed can do the free update themselves but won't allow their authorized dealers to do it.

Believe me, Ed and I talked about every angle we could think of so I could get a Gen 2 update from him, but no luck - that is unless he got a whole new flash file and I paid for it. Like you, I've had nothing but terrific dealings with AF-1 over the years, and that's why I'd prefer Ed there to do the update. That said, just over a week ago Ed told me to go ahead and contact ECUnleashed, and he said he'd trust them to do the update and get my ECU back to me in a safe and timely manner.

And I have e-mailed ECUnleashed, as well as contacted them through their website on their form, and no reply... Nothing. Zip. Zero... And it's been 5 or 6 days now.

Good thing I'm happy with my Gen 1 flash!

Dallara

Thanks for the explanation. I didn't know the fine details of how the individual reflashes worked.
I'm so busy helping my son fix his rental property I haven't had time to ride. It's just annoying having
the bike down and no communication as to when I could expect the ECU back.

Not to obvious, just enough to make it recognizable and the red/white fit nicely with the existing blue.
If I was from the US and I had the blue one, I would copy/adapt the idea, because I think it really compliments the bike.
(the helmet, ehm ...... not so nice)

I think you all have it wrong.

It is the good nature of the Yamaha riders that they risk allowing a liability to ride with them and the BMW rider is riding with the Yams as it gives him a measure of reassurance for when his bike packs up.
