But my HID headlight no longer cuts out when I hit the rev limiter so I'm happy with the results .

On another note, who knew that a 7" HID could put out more light than the stock 09 light? I bought the housing off of a friend who bought it off of a friend who bought it off of a friend, so no one remembers what manufacturer made it, but it looks like it must be an older version of the Trailtech racelight but it has a PIAA lens on it and was set up for an H4 bulb, so I installed an H4 HID conversion kit that I had laying around from a previous bike. I swear that when I have the light aimed up, I could give someone sunburn 1/2 mile away! 90+mph on my "closed course" and I wasn't out running my light . I had been planning to add led's to supplement and fill in any voids of light, but now I think just an led helmet light would have me 100% covered in the lighting department. With the light aimed down for riding around town, I still have a beam cutoff and no one has flashed their lights at me. I still have a halogen high beam (that is dim compared to the HID low beam) that I can switch to and then use the quick adjuster to aim it down if I'm ever worried about looking legal.

Can anyone identify this light?

The personal b.s. between crankshaft and the painter has been punted.. let's keep this thread on track and use PM to fling mud at each other... or better still, use the Ignore function.

Hey Guys, finally replaced the Fuel pump and I'm 90% sure it's good to go. I did a few high speed runs down the highway last night and tonight took it to the sand pits for some never ending whoops banging. Handled it very well and pulls really, really strong.

The Vortex really is amazing, it idles much smoother, the throttle response is amazing but controllable. Last night I tried Map 1 and tonight I tried map 6 and Map 6 is really good, actually..... awesome To me, the Vortex is worth the money. I can't see myself buying the software, unless I can split the cost with someone. It's that good right out of the box. I still have a trials tire on the rear and in the sand, it was very easy to control the power.

I've got a Rally this weekend, so the true test will start Friday night. Looking forward to the night stages and seeing what she can really do

Big thanks to Andy Keck for hooking me up with the fuel pump (Can't recall where it was from) but it certainly did the trick.... crossing my fingers!

The 2nd and 3rd gear derestriction mod has nothing to do with the rev limiter. It's a power restriction, not an RPM restriction.

Seems to be a common misconception though.

Hey J, the BD Stryker helmet light is a great companion for the HID desert light.

Cracking the seat

I cracked my seatbase after some hammering on the nasty MX track yesterday. Is there any stronger seats out there on the market? It cracked from side to side where the base hits the positive battery-teminal and its metalprotector whatever. THis is most likely going to happen again on a new seat, so maybe there is a trick I can do to prevent it?

Corbin uses their own seat pan that is much stronger than stock.
