Ulp

Thanks waalex. Have you run standard ULP for extended periods or just now and then when Premium is not available?

I reckon that anything runs a little cooler on PULP but will still operate on ULP but not to the same efficiency. Back a few years ago a gang of us took bikes to Finke and filled up with Opal (including hi-tech BMW's etc), they ran fine, we just loaded up with PULP at Oodnadatta on the way back.

I rode that area running local fuel, including opal, and had no issues nor performance or range degradation.

Will look at the previous post you mentioned, but go to Dalhousie Springs - that place is awesome after a long day on the pegs.

( I am not really keen on going to Mt Dare for reasons previously mentioned by another inmate from Alice Springs on another thread and previous personal experience, when visiting in a 4x4) There is precious little PULP on the way via Marree, Oodnadatta etc. and Yamaha says use PULP. My question is, will ULP 91 effect the bike, other than maybe a drop in performance/economy, as opposed to ULP 95 or 98.
I am happy to go read it for myself if someone has a suggestion as to where I might find this sort of info in the forums.
I am pretty new to this forum thing so go easy on me please.
Thanks for any advice you can give.

Cheers

No problems running with it...... but i noticed a definite difference in range, probably about 50kms less.

Barrett single sided pipe

Anyone running a single barrett pipe with the quiet insert in??

Haven't bothered putting mine yet and am curious if there is much of a performance difference between in and out.

I've got the single Barrett with the spark arrestor fitted. Haven't tried it without the arrestor, apart from in the shed. Without it it was too loud for me. Power is nice with the arrestor fitted.

The single looks fine. I got mine second hand, but i would have bought it new anyway. Cheaper, and just as effective. I think twin pipes should be left for twins or multis, or V8s.

I filled the 'hole' on the other side with a home made tool tube. See my photos a page or so back.

Had an old mate take a slightly used 660 for a test ride today and when he got back they took his XR650 and a few bucks for it....he's laughing, and he's already shopping for some twin Leo's.

Re twin or single exhausts, sorry fella's but standing at the back of mine and looking at those cannons stirs something in my nether regions..... Each to their own.

That's pretty much how I feel about the twins. But if I run single it gives me room to run a tool tube.
So the choice come down to extra space and practical or pure twin sexyness.

Decisions...

Everytime I make a decision based on practical or sexy, I become very unpractical........

I went for the single. Sounds great, looks good and has given me the space for my tool tube.

I need to get a better sump guard, the yammy one isn't up to the job, it's starting to get a bit bent out of shape and it just doesn't cover enough.. (starting to get a few dings in the cases):




The B&B one looks reasonable... What other options are there?

Thanks :)

I looked at your rego and thought "that fucker stole my plates" then I realised it was a 7 and not a 5. You must have bought yours around the same time as me. At least yours still exists!
