Initially we thought it to be a breathing problem....but that picture comes later.

His symptoms were that when he backed off the throttle completely it acted the same as an on/off ignition switch. He can correct me if I'm wrong but even if he clutched it,freewheeled and let the clutch still wouldn't fire a restart with the key was required....made it difficult to ride,but bearing in mind the terrain and the duration he did exceptionally well.

So, you are implying just plugging the PC into the bike brought all this info & programming up? My old '95 Steamer must be less sofisticated by a whole lot more than I thought! Still runs well though after 115,000km ~ 50% of that on gravel.

It's good to know you guys were that well prepared.
