Like Simmons said... No need for the 02 any longer with the ECUnleashed.. I might have missed something, is ECUnleashed saying that the 02 have to stay installed ? no they don't.... Ive read in the past that on a R6 you can take the 02 out of a stock bike and it does something similar to our clutch mod switch.. It goes into a different mode. I have posted this before on the Tenere forum. We just did a flash for a customer in Brazil with no problem. I have also checked with ECUleashed US to ask them about a South African bike that is in Japan now.. ECUnleashed said there will be no issue with that flash... With all the units we have worked on, Ive never had one not work.. The customer can leave the 02 hooked up, but there is no need and you can take them out..... I have all this stuff done on my bike and it ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

************************************************** **************************
Small problem with that...I think.

I am getting mine done next month but it is from an ECU-Unleashed satellite dealer in the UK.
So my flash will probably be US spec. On top of that, having spoken to them, they are a bit unhappy with the results obtained when they flashed an S10, so they are looking at removing the O2 sensors and rejigging it. Apparently one bike ran well enough but then started generating fault codes. The bike may have been modified in other ways too (exhaust/filter etc). The off idle fueling was the problem IIRC.
I was phoning international so I did not go into detail but I arrived back in the UK yesterday so I will get better details when I go and see them in the New Year. Fortunately they are only 30mins drive from me. It is likely that I will lend them my bike to do some testing with.

I will up date when I know some more.
************************************************** ***************************



Again, Ive posted tons of info on this over on the Tenere site. :):) I have found that the flash by it self is way better than stock. But no one will take full advantage of the flash unless you have control over the fuel. I have tested it many times. The only easy way to see big results is with something like a PCV on top of the flash. I have done many back to back to back to back test... I have seen the results.. I have a post that is about five paragraphs long with info about this on the Tenere forum. The Tenere is very fuel sensitive to get the idle just right and to eliminate 100% of the (extra- don't want) vibes that so many people have.. We can tune all that out with a PCV.
Even with the PCV you don't need the 02 unless your running auto tune. Then you will need one bung in the back to read both cylinders or you can get the AT with the two 02 sensors. Again, with the flash you don't need the factory 02 any longer. Ive installed many of these kits on customers ST with awesome results. If anyone has any questions Ill be happy to help pass along what I have learned working on the Super Tenere...

Wicked Cool Tool Box...

~


Not trying to change the subject, Gents... But I don't think I've seen this mentioned over here.

Anybody interested in a rather trick little all-aluminum storage/tool box that takes advantage of some otherwise wasted space on most Super Tenere's?

















It's pretty cool looking little rig, and made by an outfit in Spain. Currently there are two models, one that fit with the OEM, Touratech and a some other brand side cases, and a second one that works with SW-Motech/Trax mounts.

There is an entire thread over on the *other* forum... The dedicated Super Tenere forum... but I'm reticent to post a link because I hear it's a no-no to do that here.

One thing I can do is post a link to the outfit that sells them here in the USA - http://www.advmotorrad.com/ - and you can find 'em easily there. The contact fellow there is Jason, and he's been great to work with so far. I just got my notification that my tool box just shipped, so I thought I would pass along the info here. Hopefully I can post some pics of mine on the bike once I get it mounted up.

Just FYI...

Mine ships Tuesday. Looking forward to the additional storage space. Hopefully it arrives full of gold nuggets :)

I know this people, they work very well, nice stuff.
My only concern is if the rear brake calliper can hi in it when the suspension is fully compressed. I had to shortened the None exhaust because this… but probably they tested…

Mounting LED light bars on the S10

Hi all and greetings...

For those inmates who have mounted LED light bars under the headlight on their S10.. what did you "hang" them off?

Did you use the 4 plastic "lug / loops" under the headlight?

If you did.. have they stood up to vibrations off road.

And if you didn't.. how did you mount them?

Question Another coupla' questions

For those of you who have pushed a mini-fuse into the clutch switch...


-Which one did you use? I've read 7.5, 10, 15, and 20 amp.

-When I go to O'Reilly's or AutoZone, do I just ask for a "mini-fuse"?; Will they know what I'm talkin'-about?

Amp rating does not matter, there is probably only mere miliamps actually going through the switch.

Its an "ATO mini" blade type fuse.

There are two 10mm head bolts. Each just under the headlight. I can not see
a factory use for the bolts. I used those to hold the light bar bracket. So far so good.
The bike was used in Moab on the White Rim Trail and some other more mild off road.

If you shove the fuse in from the wire side you do not have to twist the blades. You don't even have to unplug the connector if you do it from that side.

Well sure, if you want to be a hack about it.

Thanks for the responses, Gentlemen (especially MeefZah, for the quick response).

Well, I guess I'm gonna' be doin' it the "hack" way, as I will be using the method that is spread all over the i-net (I hope GB doesn't mind me using his pic)...

So, I will probably try it on a drier day...
