  1. They say it's 'Splash proof'. Mine came with a rubber gasket for the back, so I don't think that will be a problem. I only ride for fun, so I avoid the rain, but I guess if needed, I could clear coat the whole thing. It's very easy to see during the day, but there's no back light for night. However, around town, street lights are enough to see it. I have a female RCA jacket in place of one of the inner push clips that I have hooked to the battery which I use for charger or aux. I was in a hurry to take a ride, so for now I have the meter plugged into the RCA. In future I'll put it on th
  2. Actually, I was more proud of the mount but here's the meter. http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&pa=2095040&productId=2095040&CID=octopart I just really wanted a LCD to match the bike's gauges
  3. I just thought I'd share my voltmeter install, as I don't think I've seen another like it. The bottom bracket is slotted so that I can slide it out of the way once the bolts are loose, making the bolts easier to remove.
  4. Come on, anything under 5K is just mailing it in.
  5. I think it's because your not hitting the sweet spot. If you could hit it, she'd be moving alot more.
  6. Kind of gives PAIR blocking a whole new meaning. Maybe he shouldn't have disconnected her flapper.
  7. Good, now I don't have to waste anymore of my time. Hey, I saw online that air filters are just to keep intake noise down. As long as you use a good oil filter, you can remove the air filter and gain top end horse power. There's also power gains in running 0w-20 oil, you just have to change it every other ride.
  8. The plate with the melted seal was put back in because the parimeter seal was fine and that's what I needed for the block plate to work. I will remove it tomorrow and take a picture. In the mean time here is a picture of the reed valves. The set on the left were the leaking ones. Though the exhaust back and forth won't enter the cylinder, as you stated, it could create turbulence in the exhaust flow, but more importantly, hot exhaust traveling back and forth thru the middle of the cylinder is something that needs to be avoided. The PAIR only works at idle, and only when the bike is b
  9. The cap sealing the valve cover port was in perfect condition and 100% air tight. All the reed valves were installed correctly. Did get out the volt meter and check those voltages from the PAIR connector like I asked? I'm really curious if you have PAIR activation with throttle off idie.
  10. I got it now, sorry was looking at a wrong angle related to your problem. I have done some digging and I think the reason it's melting is because one of your blocking plates is leaking. Because if it is leaking gasses will pass from the exhaust and heat up the aluminum plate, so hot that it could melt the reed. That means your blocking isn't done properly, ergo you have to seal the leak. When there is no leak the plate isn't heating up and the reed shouldn't be heated or do anything at all. In fact, when you mounted the plates, you could have removed the reed in total in my opinion, but I
  11. Blogs and forums, not technical documents. Tell you what, you're listed as a Electronic Engineeer, do this. Apply 12v to the PAIR valve, you'll notice it allows air to pass, remove the 12v and the valve will block the air flow. Now we know that to operate the PAIR, the ECU supplies 12v to the valve. Now start the bike cold and measure the voltage at the PAIR connector on the bike and you'll notice 12v present, meaning PAIR is active. Now keep measuring while slowing taking the throttle off idle and you'll notice as soon as you get off the throttle stop, the voltage goes to zero. If the
  12. Hmm... My 2008 BMW (very much fuel injection) doesn't have any air injection while my 1997 BMW (also fuel injected) does have a air injection. Now why would that be? I didn't say it was a good or bad system. Actually, if it helps reduce emissions, I have no problem with that as long as it doesn't- A) Hurt gas mileage B) Hurt performance C) Cause undo wear on the engine D) Fail, causing A,B, or C The PAIR system doesn't cause A,B, or C. The reason I took mine off was because I was misinformed, much like you. I was told it had to be disabled because it would interfere with my Autotune
