  1. TC will cut power when power is overwhelming the rear tire. If reverse torque is overwhelming the rear tire, cutting power isn't going to help. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  2. Right, so why does this thread exist again lol? Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  3. Eighth and sixth gen use the same engine block... Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  4. Beautiful work! Do you have a build thread and a better picture of your dyno chart? Thanks Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  5. Filter: Purolator Pure One PL-14610 Oil: What ever motorcycle approved synthetic is on sale at the local store, usually either Valvoline or Mobil 1. 10-40 in winter 20-50 in summer Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  6. My bike is a 2007, so it was never recalled. A lot of things still failed though, like the big blue connector, main fuse holder, rr to stator connector etc...
  7. This exact situation happened to me when a ground in my big blue connector failed. I had to tap into both sides of the connector and run the grounds to the frame, to fix it. I haven't changed the pump, but I have changed the fuel filter, which is a similar process and it was a bit of a PITA, but if you fully run the tank dry before attempting, it shouldn't be that difficult. If I were you, before tearing into the fuel tank, I would take a very close look at the big blue connector. Take it apart and look for any signs of corrosion or heat. Also with the key in the on position, wiggle the connection around and see if the fuel pump cycles, to tell you if you are having a bad ground/big blue connection issue.
  8. Sorry my bad, yeah forgot he was talking about the 3rd/4th gen, but there are still two brothers headers floating around out there for the 3rd/4th gen, that are exponentially better than the ebay offerings. If I was OP I would find the cleanest oem fourth gen header I could, get it ceramic coated and add slip on of his choice or start trolling for the 3rd/4th gen Two Brothers full system. They seem to be about twice as common as the 5th gen full systems....
  9. The factory 1998/1999 headers are about as good as it gets, unless you track down an erion racing, two brothers racing header or go custom $$$. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  10. I am an ME that works as a contractor for a utility (Pretend EE lol). My project has distribution and transmission contracts with a few big electric company's, I mainly deal with Overhead and Underground 13kv/23kv distribution, I may get some transmission work sometime in the future, but eventually I want to be a field engineer.
  11. Compufires are great as long as you stay under 10,000 RPM's. My Compufire did not like high RPMs and would over charge everytime I went over 10k and eventually failed after 2 years and 20k miles. I believe the shindegen sh775 is the same way (Series and happy at low revs, but not designed for high RPMs). The suzuki DL1000/Vstrom1000 rr that you mentioned, the shindengen SH847, is the rr to get these days, 50A rated (like the FH020), series and High RPM capable. The SH775 was only rated for 30A. Look into the SH847 kit from Roadstercycle.com Welcome aboard, I am a ME/ Electrical Utility Engineer (Distribution).
  12. Black widow had a shady past as "Sandy bike spares", but supposedly they're okay now, as long as you keep in mind, they're a factory replacement brand, not a performance brand. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  13. Good to hear it was an easy fix.
  14. If you got an FI light, figure out the code. hopefully its something stupid like just mixing up the tps and map sensor....
  15. Maybe you pinched a fuel line, vacuum line or tank vent? Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
