I've used both Plexxus and Honda Spray Cleaner aka Bike Spirits on my bike and visors. I stopped using Plexxus cause it was getting pretty pricey in comparison to Bike Spirits. I find that this really helps with the water on the visor, and it also works pretty good in cleaning up errant bug guts.

How do people NOT ride in the rain?

I was thinking to merge threads about bike washing and rain riding, because they usually happen for me at the same time. The 3-4 times last week was pretty normal and my neighbor keeps asking if I only ride to work when it does rain.

Seriously, I've used a variety of the airplane and bike plastic polishes. They seem to work about the same, as long as they are a polish and not a silicone product that just spiffs up the shine.

Entering diagnostic mode

I posted this last night on yamahasupertenere.com but its easy to over look so I thought I'd post it here as well.

I learned today that there is no need to remove the seat and cut wires, or remove the tank and un-hook the fuel pump. The process Lobo described is basically correct. With the key off, press and hold both buttons at the same time.


While continuing to press both buttons, turn key on and keep holding the buttons for 8 seconds.


You will then see this:


Let go of the buttons, then press both again for 2 seconds.After 2 seconds you will then see:


From here you can scroll through the codes using either button. As Lobo said,to clear the codes,you then toggle the on/off switch. Then turn the key off and the codes will be clear. I hope this helps and makes it easier in the future.

Very nice. Thank you. By On/Off, do you mean the engine kill switch?

Yes, you can access the diagnostic mode, but my understanding is you need to ground the green wire from the tip over sensor to access the CO section to adjust the CO levels. I recently adjusted my CO to +4 and didn't do anything special except remove the rear seat and ground out the one wire.

Yes. From on to off to on again or vise versa

This has been my experience with these two products. They both work well.

Hope you can understand few words

We have just bought 2 KLIM Latissimo jackets and love then.

Forget that jacket stuff for now. Git, you NEED to get the new reflash!
It will give you a reason to want extra protection.

Kinda got off on a tangent over in the picture thread when it should be over
here. Just got mine back last night. Ohhhh yeah, I'm feeling it.

Is there a source cheaper than others? And what was the turnaround?

I haven't price shopped but I'm thinking they are all going to be very close.
ECUnleased is the source of the program that is then sent to their dealers.

Personally I like AF-1 Racing. Great communication and fast turn around.
You do need to send your vin#, any performance mods and ECU# ahead
of time so the reflash program will be waiting.
