I bought the DRC Edge 2 tail light kit and had a question for those of you that have wired it before. What did you do with the license plate light harness wires? Did you leave the connector empty or splice it into the Edge 2 light with the built in license plate light?


Thanks for the help.

Eek Regular gas

I know this topic is so two-days-ago, but FWIW, I've ran nothing but regular in my (stock) bike for the last 10 000km under pretty much every condition with no issues at all.

Green 5, Yellow 4, Red 4, Green/Blue 0.5, Yellow/Blue 3, Red/Blue 4.
Hmmm... looks familiar...just yesterday...




Note: Dobeck told me to bump up #4 to 8.
Current settings 3/4.5/2/8/5/4.5

stock pipe w/upper plug removed
EXUP/all smog/flapper removed
FMF programmer of course
K&N filter. drill airbox door.

Sounds like your fuel is way lean on the last three settings...

Hmmmm, this is what I have from them (for FMF programmers purchased AFTER September 2010).....I'll call again today to verify what changes I need to make, if any, in the interim before my "Pre-September 2010" programmer gets updated with new firmware.....

Stock Setting with exhaust:
Green 3, Yellow 2, Red 0.5, Green/Blue 8, Yellow/Blue 4, Red/Blue 4.

Big bore 290cc settings with exhaust and lid opening:
Green 5, Yellow 3.5, Red 3, Green/Blue 0.5, Yellow/Blue 3, Red/Blue 4.

Big bore 290cc settings with exhaust and airbox modification:
Green 5, Yellow 4, Red 4, Green/Blue 0.5, Yellow/Blue 3, Red/Blue 4.

That just doesn't make alotta sense.
As a note,
My bike would cut off, I mean just completely stall at mid-steady throttle, and the Dobeck guy told me to bump it to 8. Pretty much fixed that problem.

Just off the phone with Dobeck.....my contact is a tech named Chris - phone # is 877 764 3337

I was told to use 5, 8, 8, .5, 3, 4 while on my trip too Utah this week.....not the optimum settings because the unit is pushing +15% at the #2 spot (acceleration) instead of +18%.....same with the 3rd position (WOT).....

In a nutshell, crank up the second and third settings to the max until they get the unit back to update the firmware (settings 1 (cruise), 4 (RPM range to activate cruise), 5 (timing for acceleration adjustment) & 6 (timing for WOT adjustment) remain unchanged from the new firmware guidelines noted above)......once they squirt in the new firmware I'll revert to the 5, 4, 4, .5, 3, 4 settings noted above......
