Sad day. I cleaned the bike, took it for a short 20 mile spin around town, lubed the chain AND then drained all the gas, disconnected the battery and then said farewell.

Bike is getting packed in household goods and shipped to Germany. Going to GE is sweet but the fact I won't receive my goods until probably August is very sad. Missing most of the good riding season again due to military constraints and the late snows we have had here in Colorado.

Realigned the axle, checked oil, checked the air filter, tightened all the bolts, checked tire pressures and awoke her from winter hibernation.
Taking her for her first spring ride tomorrow, then up to Whistler next weekend.

Rode it, jumped some curbs, rode down a few sidewalks, shopped for tires and new springs. That's about it, I believe.

Cpr






Put the CPR intake on the 07 990 since i had the throttle bodies off anyway for injector removal. The filter isnt as easy to get on and Off as i thought it would be but maybe I just need to learn the correct way?

Went to do the 15 min idle and saw the headers glowing red!!! never done that before guess shes a bit lean on the stock setting. REmapped with akro ti slip on map seams alot better test ride confirmed the gain in performance.. The ride was short but wow what a difference

I mean really wow this is a must have that stock air box is such a clunky mess and obviously a huge restriction would deffinetly recommend

Glad to hear you like it...I got one on the way. Can you send me a link of the map you used and some specs of your bike (to see if I can you your map) because I am sure I will need to remap too.

In what way is the filter hard to get off? You think you can do it with the tanks on?

I used the map from the tune ecu site. Air injection off and o2 sensors on

You should be able to get the filter on and off with the the tanks on maybe just the glove box off I put a filter skin on to extend the life of my filer between cleanings.

The filter takes a bit of finess to clip on and I thought it would slid ove the lip a bit easyer but it takes some finess and tweaking I guess it's better to have the fitter in ther tight then flopping around. Anything is better then the OE airbox

Make sure u get the Superduke trumpets also they are suppose to be good for 1hp alone

I was having issues with my BAAS 12V socket + battery tester...like blowing its 5A fuses nonstop in spite of checking the electric installation over and over again...and last week I got a replacement unit. I installed it today and it works like it should.
I also fitted the OEM side racks to mount my beloved Junior 40L cases. I'm pretty much ready for my 5 days tour of Euskadi (Basque Country)!
