you going to sell a kit for the loom?

you seem to have the same problem i do......hate the bike/love the bike
I really love the chassis and the motor but the harness is shit and I'm not going to chase random broken wire problems in the middle of nowhere. My 390 berg is rock solid, never a burp or a glitch and I think it's because of the simplicity of the harness and EFI system. The reality is that I love riding in the desert but I like to ride at a good pace. I'm not talented enough to ride the SE like that but a small bike like a 530 is way too small for me, the 690 is a good compromise. I hate giving up, must be all that time in the Military


Forgot to answer your question about buying a loom. I won't be selling them but Matt at DSG http://www.dentsport.com/ Is the one making the harness and building the FI maps for the Micro squirt. He could very easily make a few more if you want to go with the Microsquirt system. Let me get mine done and tuned and we can go from there though. We'll be spending some time on the dyno to get it right and then I'll do some trail banging, road riding and some fast rally roads to dial it in before I would consider sharing the maps.

[QUOTE=Gros Buck;19476095]The air box is made out of three main parts. Left, right (which is essentially a mirror of the right) and the air filter support. All parts are thermo glue together.

I had an air box changed under warranty because the air filter support was not air tight. And it was very hard to see.


Thanks for the help guys. I believe this might be the problem, the filter support (flat area on top) of mine seems to be curved a bit (lower in the center) when you look at it from the side. It is hard to tell for certain though and would like to confirm with others that it is not supposed to be like this. -Might take you up on the offer BK RD RNR

Yes, you can --- you have to cut the pushrod shorter.

Music to my ears! Thank you for making an effort!

I mounted the temp sensor in a piece of aluminum (bottom of pic). The sensor itself is sealed.

Anti gravity battery on the way! 1.7 lbs Trying to decide what to construct my electronics tray out of, alum is pretty easy but maybe HDPE is a better choice? CF would be cool but I have zero experience with it.

Five blinks?

Let out for work this morning and the bike dies about a mile and a half from the house. Idled fine, and ran perfect until it didn't

In my sweat filled eyes as I pushed it home I think I spied five blinks from the FI light. Anyone know where I can find a list of the codes online so I can fret over it in my office until I get home?

I checked the manual online and it shows 5 short blinks is the side stand switch.

Below is a link to the site i found the manual

PM me. I have an additional cheat sheet I got from Rally Raid on the flashing codes. I can email it to you.

My error code of one long, three short related to the air sensor was broken wires at the plug that clips to the air sensor.
Fixt. But yes broken wires already on my 2000 mile old bike. I also put in the proper resistor in the plug where my smog equip is removed.

I had the EVO 2 map installed (for the air filter that mounts directly to the TB).
We'll see how that goes.
My previous map was the EVO 1 which is for the open top airbox (no snorkel), which worked pretty well except for occasional flameouts in technical slow riding. That could of been due to low speed riding (and stock gearing) through technical stuff.

Gonna put the hammer down today.

I agree with the love/hate thing.

Fixt.
For EU bikes it means:
'malfunction in injection valve circuit'
Had that problem a few days ago :(

I'm so happy to be getting rid of all the damn resistors and associated road bike safety BS
