    Hi
    I have just had my 06 990 dyno'd with a custom map (CPR and Ackras with short baffles),the Acra map was close but not spot on . The secondarys now are open and a seperate map for front and rear cylinders . + 8ft/lbs midrange and 5hp all over better than the std Ackra map. It is well worth getting it set up ,it's the same gain again then just putting on the CPR and the NOISE:norton

    Cleaned and rebuilt forks, cleaned and regreased (mostly the top) the head bearings, retightened them. Tried to get off the fork fluid of the front brake.. This took me a lot of time. I had to take it all apart.. But now they are clean and shiny:) Almost better than new:)

    But it's so much fun:)

    Still a long way to go (picture is before fork reinstallation) :

    Thanks. It's mostly Highway Dirt Bikes with a bunch of home brew stuff.

    • One of our TAPP Panel Mount USB sockets on a home brew bracket at the top.
    • 2 Baryl 12VDC panel mount sockets in HDB Powerlet holes. One for tank bag power and the other for heated gloves.
    • Custom circuit board replaces HDB discreet switches and LEDs. I don't have a pic of the actual board but here's the CAD model

    Switches run a custom relay board in the glovebox switching power from an Eastern Beaver PC-8 fuse block. The relay board may look like I'm killing ants with a sledgehammer but all those headers and jumpers are fo some selectable control features for future use. I'm thinking of redesigning it to include full size ATO/ATC fuses. I found that there are places where mini-fuses are hard to find, i.e. Russia!

    Here's what it looks like installed.

    I swapped my locking glovebox for a early-style non-locking type. The locking mechanism took up too much room and made the PC-8 fuses too difficult to remove. No need for a lock. If the bad guys ever got into it they would just be confused. Plus it's covered up with my tank bag.

    had several ongoing issues on my 990 most fuel related and then found broken vacuum lines and a few other small things I added the CPR since I had it apart Ill start fine tuning the map more now that its runing right again but for sure CPR+ stock Map= melted parts

    Is there a map for older FIs on CPR site? I didn't see one if so. I have a CPR on the way and I am little concerned about the map. I got a Tuneecu cable and software, but might just get her dyno'ed at some point.

    The ideal setup would be to have Rowe make a version of the PDM60 that had four switch inputs plus a couple of non-switched circuits. Now THAT would be sweeeet. Get rid of the relays and fuses altogether.:clap

    I have never seen one I believe the owner @ CPR runs the Dyno jet setup on his 990 from what I was told. For right now Im just using the Akro ti slip on tune with the 02 sensors on pry not optimal but works pretty good right now

    Looking at the manual it looks as if that can be done. You can have any circuit be always on, or non-switched. And it appears as if the aux. wire can be used to trigger any of the circuits, which might not be exactly what you are looking for but might work.

    Took the ferry to Nanaimo, road to Tofino. Found another use for the 990: wet suit drying rack.

    well, Anti Gravity 16 cell small case fits nicely, turn it ccw sideways, so terminals are on left side. perfect!

    upper minus, down plus-terminal.
    grey filling stuff is from package;
    plus-cable is partly in a white plastic tube, so it won't wear off as 'grinding' against chassis (original cable did, and old battery died...);
    minus-cable makes a loop down to reduce excess length.
