  1. I bet if Extreme creation made a one stop package for the 1098 rear conversion, they would sell a bunch. I know I would jump on it if the price was right.
  2. Looking at that AFR, you are really rich. Maybe you need more air box mods (high flow filter and snorkel removal?) or maybe you need to work on the jetting, but your AFR is very rich. The dashed line is 13.2 which is optimal, and the solid line is where you are at right now 11-12, well below optimal. The powerband itself looks great, but I would expect more peak power with that Two Brothers Full Exhaust, though I am not sure what 4th gens average, which could be lower.
  3. Beautiful!
  4. Newer motor?
  5. Awesome stuff. Keep in mind the eighth gens have much higher dynamic compression than the sixth gens (higher static compression plus softer cam timing), so you going to want to be careful with the psi and ignition timing. Your free flowing exhaust should help out dramatically though. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  6. Maybe a good candidate for convertibars, to get some ride height back. A lot of people drop the front end a few mm's to speed up the handling, but you're talking about two inches. That might get twitchy and hurt ground clearance. Though typically, front end swaps with CBR triples creat a more relaxed offset, that takes well to dropping the front and raising the rear.

  7. Different fuel injectors. Maybe different fuel pump. Maybe different connectors etc. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  8. FH023aa oh wow. I didn't know Shindengen had released another FH after the FH020aa. Very interesting. I'll need to look into that. Thanks for the info! Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  9. I see you're in Orlando. Would you be open to doing some dyno pulls sometime? Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  10. Well I am not talking about an older shunt type regulator or even a newer mosfet regulator, I am talking about a series regulator. Have you ever used one? It is very obvious how the electrical load effects the system. You can watch your RPMs drop when turning on your high beams. This is not the case with shunt/mosfet regulators....
  11. Well since the 6th gen two brothers slip ons are just high mounts plus a dummy can, I am sure it wouldn't take much to make it work as a high mount on a fifth gen... Probably just a custom bracket and maybe trim an inch or two out of the mid section of the link pipe. Any competent exhaust shop should be able to do it in an hour or so.
  12. Well unless you have a series regulator/rectifier, the demand on the stator is always 100% loaded.
  13. Unless its a series RR, those actually do reduce drag when the electrical load is low. The +2014 V-Strom 1000 is actually using the newest Shindengen RR the SH847, which is a series rr and it will unload the stator when electrical demand is low.
  14. Sounds like a series RR. Maybe the new sh847. That would be great. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
