    HFT Swash Plate electric motor

    Personally I would gather a brave breath and buy one OEM control motor to wait it's time on my garage self. We all know the OEM parts usually are a bit higher quality than aftermarket ones. OEM part prices in US are usually much cheaper too than here in Europe. This motor we fixed here lately...

    HFT Swash Plate electric motor

    I have no choice to gather statistics about the failures of the swash plate control electric motor failures. But it seems most common failure is the C-hape magnets getting loose. It seem to happen usually at bike age of 90000...100000km (60000 mi). So not very often. But we have to remember...

    HFT Swash Plate electric motor

    There is no field windings, this is a permanent magnet motor. There is two C-shape magnets installed in it producing the field. The solution I described is useful only in case the permanent magnets are in good shape and still in place. Situations when motor went bad reported mostly describe...

    HFT Swash Plate electric motor

    Happened so the transmission control electric motor went prematurely bad on buddy's bike (about 25000 km on odo). Right in the middle of normal road riding, giving out the DCT error message (28) (see the service manual page 11-26). Motorcycle reported not to accelerate normally after that and...

    gas milage mods?

    How you, obviously speaking english as a native language, would describe the situation about engine, when fuel mixture is extremely lean? Backfiring perhaps..?

    gas milage mods?

    You do not notice the engine "sneezes" at the "yank", like engines do when fuel mix being too lean?

    gas milage mods?

    Sure it would have been nice to meet a perfect motorcycle. Dealing with bikes over 40 years and never met such yet... But DN still is pretty close to my understandigs about perfect bike :) Well balancing between riding and tinkering pleasures.

    gas milage mods?

    Yes, right, intercooler is for making air cooler before it enters engine combustion chamber. And because the cool air is more dense, it contains more oxygen per weight per given air volume (kg/m3). And other gases too the air contains (mostly Nitrogen) ofcourse, but as those gases do not support...

    gas milage mods?

    Yes, my mistake. Stupid me, living in a metric world, still confused about the mpg measuring unit. But I consider +/- 5L/100km still as a pretty good result (my 1500cc Goldwing was asking about 7...8L/100km). Maybe you have better quality fuels also in US available. In my life the lowest fuel...

    gas milage mods?

    Sure your consumption is realistic. And it depends somewhat on riding style ofcourse (mine is quite aggressive). And on weather temperature (it is not too warm in my riding area), engine temperature rarely goes over +70C/158F. Cooler running engine will consume some more fuel. The smallest...

    gas milage mods?

    So, here are some results. With Power Commander and also Autotune installed and also actively used. I'm riding all the time Autotune activated, letting it make corrections in +/- 20% frame. Actually I was installing PC to get rid of this annoyng yank at about 80 kmh/3500rpm. But in the end got...

    Cutting slots in windscreen to help with the wind

    About the length of original Givi windscreen: it seems the root of the problem is in the screen installation system. Honda windscreens (the low and a bit higher accessory model) are both quite low. And Honda made the supporting points for those windscreens giving decent support enough for low...

    Cutting slots in windscreen to help with the wind

    After using some time the MRA extension on a top of Givi screen I became to understanding this solution will not satisfy my needs. Bugs still fly over the screen extension into my helmet vizor and the whole construction starts to flap quite aggressively at speeds over 100 km/h, especially when...

    OEM Higher Type Windscreen Wanted

    Been there, done that. Tried couple of MRA extensions, smaller and bigger. MRA extensions will make Givi screen wobble badly at speeds over 100 kmh. Givi screen is made from some pretty flexible plastic.

    Vibrations over 110km/h (70mph)

    If you already get there, maybe it would be a thing to check also swingarm related bearings situation?

    Vibrations over 110km/h (70mph)

    You should next determine if the vibration is related to the front end or back end. How about wheel bearings condition? Also bad universal joint may cause sometimes vibrations (No. 3 on image).

    Vibrations over 110km/h (70mph)

    If the vibration appears only while moving, I would suspect the frame/wheels part first, not the engine. Engine vibrations should appear also while not driving, just revving on N. Are the tyres in good shape, not any odd (asymmetrical) wearouts? Are the wheels balanced properly (especially the...

    OEM Higher Type Windscreen Wanted

    Thank you for offering the Givi. I have also one Givi installed and another in spare :) Givi just appears too low for me. There are too much bugs in my riding area and my helmet vizor is often like a mosquitos cemetery... If I could figure out some well working solution for screen extension...
