>>After pumping the throttle 3-4 times on the initial start............to manually richen the mixture until the engine warms up?

Some people have good results with this procedure, some don't and some people don't even want to look at FCRs without a choke lever. If they are willing to foot the additional cost then I'll be happy to do them. Once they get working, that is......

Nice!

It's all about the midrange isn't it? It's where I love to ride the bike and it's where the biggest difference is noticeable. I'm really looking forward to riding the bike this weekend. I'm wishing that I'd done the dirt wheels but my house has been draining me of all funds (well this helped - let's be honest) and I ride the 17/19 most so that's what I went with. My theory is that AWD will make the smaller wheels work.

I'm planning on taking the bike down to the pine barrons I think and letting it loose on some of the big gravel roads there and seeing what it's like in the big slides. We'll also try some trails which is probably a bad idea with the Distanza's that are on the bike so that is probably another good test. I'm very excited.

Marty, nice to see you here. Chris showed me your bike and the videos and it's very cool. Love your work.

Looking forward to this weekend!

Have fun this weekend take lots of pics and video.

I put my AWD system on off road bikes because the advantages would be most obvious. After riding the bikes and reading more of Ohlins's press on the R1 conversion, I want to get the bikes on super-moto tires at a track with a fast rider some time. I expect all the less obvious advantages will carry over.

@Sakurama: AWD will make small wheels work better at least while going slow. AWD is also great for getting the most from the wrong tires. Gravel roads should be fun! With the front tire geared relatively slow, I'd expect the bike will still fish-tail a tiny bit with both tires spinning and there will be a "delay" before the AWD kicks in when the rear brakes loose. That said, look forward to zero-lock power slides. It's a totally natural thing to do on an AWD bike.

Yeah baby! I can't wait. It's been months since I've ridden so it will take a little to get warmed up but it should be a lot of fun. It will be good to have the crew with us so we can get some feedback from 990 pilots but AWD virgins. We'll work hard to bring you some fun footage.

You're not, by any chance, gonna be riding to the RevIt sale in Brooklyn this weekend, are you? I'd love to get a close look at your beast.

Gee, I remember taking that photo in Goblin Valley. And that's Gino in the background too.

I'll see what I can do for that morning. No promises yet.

Haha... I thought that was Gino, but the BMW threw me off.

Marty, care to share your thoughts a bit on underdrive ratios? Christini likes to stay around mid-60s and says if you go higher you get a hard feeling on the pull of the bike. (?) I'd think (with no testing to back it up) as close to 100% as possible without overdriving it would provide the most seamless transition from rear drive to 2wd.

Just my $.02 - the problem comes with cornering, where the front wheel covers more distance than the rear. At 100% ratio, you basically don't turn without wheelspin. Kinda like driving your old 4WD truck on pavement - you're fine until you try to turn - then it's like a bucking bronco!
