  1. Reset the ECU Disconnect the battery for a few minutes. Reconnect, then start the bike and let it run until the operating temp gets high enough to kick in the cooling fan and turnoff. Let it cool down. The key is to not touch the throttle at any time during this cycle, including whenstarting the bike. Just press the button. If that does not work, go back to your old throttle body and retest....
  2. I could make some, but it would not be profitable....the previously mentioned 3D printing would probably be the best....and beefing up the bosses would help too! Upper boss is 24mm from edge and lower boss is 26.75mm from edge. Bosses are ~108.5 center to center
  3. Upper boss = 18.8mm tall Lower boss = 16.8mm tall Both bosses angled slightly toward flange 80mm wide
  4. Stumbled across mine the other day, and thought, "I could make these..." now I can't find the damn thing. Maybe I dreamed it....anyway if I find it again, I will let you know if I can make it....
  5. Others have run them, they have stiffer sidewalls, and maybe a slightly tougher compound. Personally I think they would be overkill unless you were doing a two-up trip with luggage. For reference, the FJ is 650+ lbs, and the Connie, and ST are both over 700lbs. The big BMW's are in that range as well. The VFR1200 is 593 fully fueled....(non DCT)
  6. Road 4's and 5's are great, as well as the Angel GT's which seem to have the best feedback and grip of all of them. I mount and balance my own tires, and all my friends come over to do theirs. They leave me any half-used tires they change out, and I had an unlimited supply of sport bike tires for summer use. S21's, S22's, Q3's, Q3+'s, and even an unused Bridgestone racing (BT16?) rear tire, which I destroyed it in 850 miles.... The sport tires work well on the 1200, but do not last long at all. When buying new, I will stick with sport touring, for longevity, and if the current trend continues, I will only need to buy them for winter time, which is not long here in CA....
  7. I would be up for it, but I already booked the 5-mile at Thunderhill. Gotta get some slicks though, as I am overheating my street tires.....

  9. Just watched the "crappy video" and it looks like the bike is coming along nicely! Also, if you turn it up, I swear I can hear Pink Floyd playing in the background - good stuff! I am also realizing with the bad case of MBD I have, I all of a sudden cannot afford to upgrade my bikes, as I am just having enough free time and money to maintain all of them.....
  10. It finally happened! I powdercoated the wheels at work, and they came out nice. All new wheel bearings, seals, brake rotors and tires. I know it's not pristine, but it has all the tasty bits I wanted. Having so much fun riding it, I don't know if I will go back to the clip-ons.............just have a few pieces of bodywork, and new headlights to replace the old. the RC Tuono!

    Hey Rosso, what mirrors are those - my 3rd gen stock one broke, and I'm tired of the mirror "condoms" that don't stay put.......

    Really cool picture! The bike looks like a shark quietly swimming in a school of a million little unassuming feeder fish..............I love pictures that grab your childhood imagination and bring it right out!
