Last I checked, any identification of a cute blonde is not considered off-topic around here. Also, don't quite look like "anti-freeze size" to me. Then again, I live in New England.
Outstanding. Thank you.
Explanation of what you've done?
Anyone with ideas?
Soooo, what is the collective wisdom on this modification (relocating and/or resizing the Regulator/Rectifier)? Especially considering the Shorai Battery Relocation, has this modification taken hold??
I get it that the rectifier changes the 3-phase AC signal into DC (the opposite of an inverter, right?), and the regulator ensures that the proper voltage gets sent to the battery for recharging. By installing a more efficient unit, would that simply reduce the amount of resistance sent to the Reg/Rec unit (thus both reducing heat discharge as well as making make more wattage available for other uses)? What I am wondering is whether a more efficient Reg/Rec would free up some wattage, to power some more heated gear.
I know that somebody is going to pile onto me with a lecture about volts, watts, and amps. I am all ears--please instruct.
if your sensor is after the tank and after the oil cooler it should be lower than the tank when air is passing through
The problem is the sensor is in the line that comes out the engine before it goes into the cooler
Are you sure you are correct in what is in and out? If it is that just dont make sense:huh
Yes, The sensor is in the long line that comes out the bottom of the engine, it goes up and into the cooler, then out the cooler is a short pipe that goes into the frame just below the filler cap,
As I then see it there is a short line near the bottom of the frame that goes into the engine
There are 2 pipes that go into the engine, the long one and a short one, my understanding is that the short one feeds from the frame tank into the engine
I am as confused here with the temperature readings as can be
Unfortunately I am not close to the bike now, so will get some pictures later
The reason I want to do this is to make room to add XR600R style fuel tank mounts.
well after 15 years I sold my BMW R100GS PD, it was time for a change, after searching the web and comparing cycles, with the help of the dealer giving me a price I wanted I am now the owner of a 2012 XR650L, I just wanted to introduce myself as I get more into dual sport riding (taking it easy at first). So anyone in the Albany, NY area that could suggest some rides I'd appreciate it.
Welcome to the XRL, you will enjoy it
As far as Lex's rewiring the R/R in a more direct fashion, he is not the only one. It is a big mod for Triumph Tiger pre 07s for more watts. I haven't done it to my 06 Tiger because at it last service I had the dealership test it and said it was well within specs. I know electrical parts don't slowly die out, but usually work perfectly until you are in the middle of now where and just go puff. But didn't see the need at the time. It very well may get done on the Tiger and XRL when I electrical skills get better.
make friends here
we're a quirky bunch but harmless (well most of the time).. You will find plenty of rides and events throughout the year
You might want to compare with Spud's set up and readings
Strong suggestion, spend a week and read the entire thread!
Best Advice ever, I am actually going through it again and making a file with links for myself for future reference
Sounds like a calibration issue. Put both sensors in boiling water and see what the difference is. They may read claose at a lower temp.
WTF happened to the index several of us helped make???
