    Yes, you can access the diagnostic mode, but my understanding is you need to ground the green wire from the tip over sensor to access the CO section to adjust the CO levels. I recently adjusted my CO to +4 and didn't do anything special except remove the rear seat and ground out the one wire.

    This has been my experience with these two products. They both work well.

    I wanted to share my tough about the Klim Badlands Pro. I am so happy with my suit, I decided to do a quick review on video.

    Hope you can understand few words :evil

    Forget that jacket stuff for now. Git, you NEED to get the new reflash!
    It will give you a reason to want extra protection.:wink:

    Kinda got off on a tangent over in the picture thread when it should be over
    here. Just got mine back last night. Ohhhh yeah, I'm feeling it.:D

    Is there a source cheaper than others? And what was the turnaround?

    I haven't price shopped but I'm thinking they are all going to be very close.
    ECUnleased is the source of the program that is then sent to their dealers.

    Personally I like AF-1 Racing. Great communication and fast turn around.
    You do need to send your vin#, any performance mods and ECU# ahead
    of time so the reflash program will be waiting.

    From what you said on the other thread about T mode, I will definitely get it done. TBH the bike is too fast for what I use it for at this time. At the moment my needs are saving tyres and low fuel consumption. Both are difficult to achieve when the bike had the aerodynamics of a barn door.

    Although I have figured out a simple way of getting more fuel in the tank. If (and only if) I am driving straight on from the gas station I insert a piece of clear plastic tube into the tank before filling to let the air out of the top and get almost a gallon (US) more in the tank. Inside the tube is a piece of stiff wire to keep a loop in shape so the end touches the inside top of the tank beside the filler cap. If you do not drive straight off the gas expands and the bike pisses its pants and drops fuel out of the breather tube. With this I am getting about 30 miles more per tank.

    The only problem with the flash is that there are no dealers on my route till I get to Texas and with the comments about AF-1, he seems the logical choice. I will just have to wait till September and another 15000 miles to do it.

    The sad thing is that I have recently ridden past 4 tuning centers. Doh!

    Can you take pictures of this next time you stop for fuel? Would love to see it.

    I gave up being sleek when I started raiding pie factories.

    we really should have started a traditional "Show us your Yamaha Super Tenere 1200 Mods" thread, since the dedicated forum isn't seeming to gain any traction. Hell I'll even let Pluric moderate the bitch. :rofl

    Not at a fill up but you can see how it works. All it does is allow the air in the top of the tank to escape.

    This is the whole thing. About 1/4" poly tube and inside is some wire that is pliable to allow a loop to be maintained in the wire. It is 2' long in total and the parts (?) were obtained from Lowes.

    [​IMG]

    The wire is wound around the tube as it exits either end. This holds the wire in place and also serves to tell me I have hit the inside of the tank with the clunk noise it makes inside when inserted. The black tape acts as a guide and tells me that it remains in place.

    [​IMG]

    This is what it looks like before insertion.

    This is what it looks like when inserted. The black tape tells me it is still taught and the open tube end is still at the top inside of the tank.
    The other end is long enough to wrap around something to hold it all in place while you fill up.

    I tried inserting this with an almost full tank (to the normal level) and tried to blow the tube free of gas. I did not work for me but I am sure it is possible.
