    Turn signal relay is integrated inside speedometer, not interchangeable, you probably need resistors.

    Shaggin, we ride up to Flagler Beach and Mantanza quite a bit. Not sure if you ever head down that way.

    Yea, you need resistors... not sure what resistance, but i dont mind the highe rflash rate... I am still working on my bike so I havent ridden with them but I am one of those guys that prefers to use my hands..

    Thanks guys for the replies. High Tech Speed sells a resistor, I'll include one in my order.

    I added the TTO tach, a Remus header and power commander with auto tune. Can't wait for the snow to be gone so I can try it all out[​IMG]

    Aprilian,
    i want to know how well the PCV opens the bike up... i am on the fence about either the PCV or new cams being my next purchase....

    PCV thread here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=654767

    Never mind the size of filter, the two 90 degree turns are a bigger problem. I think that using a smaller battery would allow more volume in the airbox. I thought about a pod filter, but the stud for the front seat is exactly where the center of the pod would be.

    Hey HH060g,

    While your bike's apart, can you count the slots for me on the abs/speedo ring for the rear wheel? And does you're speedo read true?
    thanks

    My spedo is 7% fast compared to my GPS enabled radar detector. It doesn't seem to change much with different tires.

    mfbj40,
    I just saw your post and I just put the wheels on tonight... But in the haste of wanting to get the bike together tonight I just realized that I have to get them rebalanced. So when I take them off to take to my buddies bike shop I will count the number of slots. I have no idea of the accuracy of my speedo, but I imagine it would be similar to Aprilians. I have a question maybe you guys can help me out with. The ABS rings have a little rust on them but I didnt paint them because I was concerned it would trip up the sensor since the paint would make the slots a slightly different size or mess up the magnetic field (not sure how it really works, so that might be me over thinking it) Any input on whether I should leave them be or if it would be safe to paint them is appreciated.

    Paint's not a worry for the rings or their operation. Your only concern would be if too thick of a paint or powdercoat application fattens it up so much that it rubs on the face of the sensor.

    Thanks Shaggin,
    I need to change the color of the seat and the more I stare at the bike, the more I want to paint the frame and the swing arm, either the green or black... I want to lose all the grey. No more working on the bike for a while thou.. I have a thousand other things that according to my other half are more important... lol, i.e. the green machine behind the bike. It needs a new stator and switch boards, so that is what is getting my attention next.

    Cheers!

    I took my XMoto out last week for a ride and have gotten a couple more in since then. Mid February MC riding in Idaho :)

    I have a few questions maybe you guys can answer...

    I have the Scorpion exhaust. It makes a notable difference in power delivery, but is Spinal Tap loud. Any dB killer on the market?

    Also, will the ECU automatically adjust for the exhaust and (say a K&N filter), or do I need to start looking at a PC V?

    Thanks.

    You might look at DB Dawgs - I don't know how well they work, but my experience is that the restrictors make the exhaust sound tinny. You may only be able to bring it down to 10 1/2 :rofl

    ECU (based on posted dyno AFR's) runs lean. You can run without any fuel enrichment (many have and that is how I bought my used Xmoto) but you can get better "giggles" if you find a way to enrich the maps. Fueling on the x discussed here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=654767

    Good looking bike, and nice mods.

    I've got the scorpion exhaust too, and you are right -- it's ridiculous loud.

    The exhaust thread recently convinced me that the power gains weren't as legitimate as most think, so I'v been planning to reinstall the OEM. (The Scorpion was already installed when I bought my xmoto). I'm just waiting to get the bits ordered and a little time. Did you really notice a significant difference in power delivery?

    I'd love to keep the Scorpion and just tone it down, so if anyone knows of a way to kill some dB...


    Just for grins, Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day in Arkansas:
