Re: Intake/exhaust mods and low octane map?

I've been reading in other forums on other bikes how the octane doesn't matter and even that 87 is better. Just bringing up this from an old thread search to see what is said about it for the SMT. Do you think the octane is important for the SMT 990? Memory tell me that folks on here felt is was ver...

Re: Another screen revelation

I've hear some speak of the front tire feeling a bit vague with the SMT.
Maybe it's in my head, but when I ran mine with no screen, I felt the

Re: Power Commander 5 & Tune ECU custom maps

#9/ Kev STD Air Box RC8 FINAL 19.8.12.hex This one seems close on paper to me, but I have Wings and US 92 oct fuel.... Should I look at another map or some adjustment across the spectrum on this one to account for the fuel? Thats correct, if everything else matches up spec wise then add 2% across t...

Re: Cheap air box that works

What would be a good starting point with the same as above, but with Wings and in the USA (CO) with 91 octane? #18 + some percentage? 91 Ethanol or normal unleaded fuel? In US it's tough to find without ethanol, unless you have a place staked out, so he likely means 91 with Ethanol. I just added so...

think it is possible for me to feel the difference between the usual US 91 and some 90 non ethanol I tried this week? I could swear I feel a slight, subtle bit of extra vibs running on the 90 oct.
