    +1 - works great and quickish too. I didn't think it was particularly noisy though.

    A friend of mine have the same slime pump. It works great.
    But I was thinking about avoiding the bulkiness of it, as I like to ride with just a waist tool-bag and a water bag. I'm not a fan of strapping luggage to the bike unless I really have to.
    I guess I'll stay with the hand pump.

    You're probably right about that :D

    I stripped all the plastic of my slime pump just have the pump, motor, and hose. The whole package is the size of my fist.
    It goes everywhere I ride.

    That thing gets hot. How long does it take to cool so you can pack it without the plastic on it ?

    ECU and battery mounted, wiring harness is moving forward. Should be running in a few more weeks!

    its cool by the time you put the tire back on your bike and collect all your tools.

    It pays the bills. :lol3

    Yep, accountants have taken over Apple. Now a SmugMug customer hoping to help keep ADV commercial free :thumb


    Me too - on my older R bikes - part of factory kit - stores inside the frame :nod

    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.

    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 ;)

    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 :wink:

    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 :nod

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

    None.

    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.
