Not quite today, but over about three days.

Received and fitted a pair of Moto Science CF look LED integrated mirrors thats or of match my genuine CF fairings.
I already had a halogen set but one snapped off due to my bike being in a place in my shed/garage where mates walk past and bumped it leading to it being broken.
Bit the bullet and ordered an even smaller set - my rear signals are 20W halogen so don't need to mess with the supplied resistors as the load on the flasher will be OK.

Confirmed that my Lonelec cable/adapter would work with THE MAC VERSION OF IAW Reader and Writer on my MacBook Air running Sierra - this was for another thread.
Tested this by reading the bin, then via Tunerpro and the correct XDF that it was correct. (Tunerpro was via XP as a virtual machine in Virtualbox on my Mac)

Then used Mac version of IAW Writer in Sierra to write a bin I developed for Andreas (based on true logged data) via my IAW Writer (Mac version) and all seems good.

Modified my datalogging Excel workbook to first deduct injector dead time, then correct for AFR differences, then add back dead time to better tune fuel maps.
Yet another improvement to my analysis of logged data.

Digging through some stuff in the shed, found I had a spare stainless WBO2 bung came with an Akra system for my son's MT07, so will get that TIG welded to the vertical header to complement the horizontal header I have already had TIG welded a bung for AFR logging.
So will be able to log vertical and horizontal AFR for logging and mapping via my Excel workbook.

Today a new speedo cable arrived, as mine was broken for some unknown reason - I can't even blame alcohol!
So that will be fitted in a few days over the weekend and all should be good for our annual pilgrimage to Phillip Island for MotoGP over about 10 days and 3,300 km of twisty riding.

Next is to sort severely notched clutch hub and basket. Might even try filing the basket and see how that goes.
It is extremely heavy so anything coulomb better.
100,000 km or close to 58,000 miles and the bike has been great.
A while ago, but Newfren driven and drive plates, but the notches need fixing.

Took the Keihin off the super light and adjusted the floats. I was running out of gas. It runs like a beast now. I also adjusted the idle on the 01 900/1000 and it runs even better now. I am waiting for my cables so I can update the map that Punch did.
Thanks Punch!

Hey - I just think it will be better. It will be really interesting to read your impressions.
At worst you can go back to the map that you are currently using if you feel that is better.

Maps IMO need to be tweaked based upon actual/real data.
However not everyone has the inclination or time.

There seems to be benefits though - better performance, better rideability and better fuel usage.
Not my claims, just comments from some others who I have analysed data for. It is not like I am making money out of this!

How did you adjust the idle and how did it make it run even better?

On the 900/1000 there are screws on the throttle cable that your can adjust the idle up or down. It was idling at around 2000 rpm so I adjusted the throttle settings. It is now around 1100-1200. it is more of an adjustment of the throttle cable.

Just some little things. A couple of days ago, I replaced a broken tank clamp and a missing air box clamp. The tank clamp broke right off in my hand trying to clamp it down a couple of weeks ago. I don't know if I didn't have the tank seated correctly on the frame or what, but it snapped right at the joint. Anyway, I got a new one and did the simple replacement. The air box clamp (one of four) had been missing since I got the bike.

I did the last part of the 30,000km service today. I was getting dodgy readings from the gunson at home due to the enclosed area I have to work in. So I took a few things to work this morning and did it there. I'll post my results and findings in one of the tuning threads later. Long story short, it's running nice now.
