Re: DYNO RUN and Good Results

if you moved your SAS you shouldn't keep your cat. the O2 sensors wouldnt make any difference as it will just make the bike run in open loop all the time which is ok , less rattle, more smooth, more petrol consumption.

Re: Spark Plugs for the GT

iridium sparks usually don't die till 30.000 miles but i dont think it will be that expensive. yeah may be to change them with labour depending who is doing it can cost $400 (aussie) but not needed long time.

Re: DYNO RUN and Good Results

You will see a massive difference. While the absolute maximum hp and torque are at the top end, it is every day riding where you notice the biggest changes in fuelling. For the 3000 to 6000 range, at least the relative hp and torque is doubled to more than doubled in parts, and all those annoying b...

Re: No start issues

is it working on N gear ? because all you saying is it doesnt start when its in gear , even if you pull the clutch if the side stand is down. The side stand has a electronic connection with ECU and if its down it wont start .

Re: cold Start

just an update to this that i used to use 10W50 motorex as the manual says but its also says 5w40 and its must be the cold start problem. 10w50 dont like cold weather gets harder/ but 5 w40 even minus degrees still very runny and thin.
