Fuel + Ignition was only $15 more than the fuel only programmer so I got the ignition one.

I partly got it to be able to fine tune the map, but I also got it to get the quickshifter in the future. :praise:

I'm want to get good at wheelies first before I get the quickshifter. Mainly want it to do multi-gear wheelies, if I ever get to that point.

Wait, I thought you needed some kind of fancy high performance PCV system ...

RIP my butt. Longest I've ever ridden a motorcycle in one day and it's on a 250cc supermoto. :lol:

Rode to Reno, NV and back to go to the Aerostitch popup event. I've always wanted an Aerostitch but didn't know what size and alterations to order, but they put on popup events. Found out about this one earlier in the week and decided to head out there.

I took the fun route on the way there - 108 through Sonora Pass, with a group ride (mostly S1000RRs, a GSXS1000 and a VFR800 :lol: ), hit the event, and then took the highways back home.

Put Galfer SS brake lines and pads on today. Mainly bought it because the rear brake has always felt shitty to me. Got everything installed and .... it still feels like shit. I think pedal travel is even longer now. I bled the system so much and there's no air coming out of it, but it still feels like dog shit. The front feels even better now but the rear still feels so bad that I bought a used R6 rear MC on eBay. I'm hoping the larger diameter MC will help decrease the travel and not make it feel so mushy.

So it turns out the master cylinder still had a ton of air in it. I bled the MC from the banjo bolt last night and the rear brake feels amazing right now. So much so that I don't know if I should try installing the R6 MC I ordered...

Installed the R6 master cylinder today. It all bolted straight up. I had ordered a Zeta brake clevis for the stock MC,which uses a 6mm rod, but got one for a DRZ400SM, which uses an 8mm rod. I was about to return it, but tried it on the R6 MC and it fit, so that was a pleasant surprise.

Brake pedal feels super firm now. I haven't been able to try it out yet, though, because it started raining as I was putting it back together.

You may have mentioned this already, but I must know: what is the top speed, and how many million RPM does it run at, say, about 70 MPH?

I hope :mask:

Top speed is probably 95-100 mph. I've had it at 91 indicated but it feels super scary at that speed.

There's no tach but at 70 on flat ground on a relatively still day it takes about 1/4th-1/3rd throttle to maintain 70 mph. Definitely doesn't feel stressed at that speed and has a lot of power (relatively speaking) left on reserve.

I am surprised it can do 90.... I recall my V-Star 650 barely able to get much over 80 downhill with the wind, and the engine was just screaming (though, it sounded great). Slow Yamahas FTW.

It's geared super tall, probably so it can cruise at 65-70 mph no problem.

I'm surprised the V-Star was that slow.

It is rated at 40 HP, and weighs over 500 pounds. Put me on it, and it's about 740 pounds. 740/40=18.5
At least the torks was guud.

91 is scary? Pssh, I've gotten my POS up to an indicated 110! (Probably an actual 100)

Yeah, but yours weighs 180+ lb more than my bike. :devil:

Aero and weight are huge factors at high speeds. My F4i at an indicated 151 mph felt much, much more stable than my WR at 91 indicated. Hell, throw in a good cross breeze or big bump at 65-70 mph and the bike shimmies and wiggles a ton.

True. I'm sure the big front fender sitting up high doesn't help the front end stability at speed either.

Well, I've run out of things to do on this bike for now. Only thing I've bought today is a one finger clutch lever for wheelie practice.

So my roommate was looking at my bike yesterday and was wondering why the rear was sitting so high. I showed him how I unthreaded the lower shock mount down to raise the rear and he was like "uhh it's not supposed to look like that", so I lowered the rear back down and he increased the preload and took some measurements.

Holy shit the bike feels so much nicer now. It's nowhere as twitchy as before and it pops the front wheel up so quickly instead of just squatting down. :lol:
