Aww wonder why just yours...

Well here is an un-solicited plug.

His FE kit is great, I bought one, and it came with everything one could need, good instructions, and quality materials.

Here is a pic.

I'll get it up and going again. Probably will organize it a bit better this time.

with the PowerCommander III usb unit, is it interchangeable between bikes? I know that the connections and provided map are model specific, but if I can rig up a converter for the connections and copy on the map for another bike could it work?

Just trying to justify the $$ for the powercommander unit, might not spend the $$ if I can only use it on this bike and when I sell the bike the unit is no longer of any use to me.

Also, has anyone had the chance to compare dyno results between a stock bike and a stock bike with powercommander? Anything that anyone can upload?

Cheers

Power Commander Compatibilty

I wouldn't mess around with cutting and splicing cables for the sake of a few hundred dollars.
One wire going to the wrong place could fry your ingition system.

All of the maps are downloadable from the dynojet website for the bikes that they cover.

I just recently purchased and installed the fender eliminator kit that FAZR6 puts out, with the stock turn indicators. Looks great and went together with no problems. Kudos to Mike for a great solution to the clap trap that comes stock.

FAZR6 seems to be getting some good business. I would be interested if I was not getting some saddlebags. From what I have read, they will not allow the saddle bags. Has anyone heard about Comp. Works FE kit? Any other suggestions?

I have the CW kit and it does indeed work with the Eclipse soft saddlebag setup. However, I would give FAZR6 a little bit of time to modify his as the CW kit, in my humble opinion, is not worth anywhere near the $130 I paid for it, $60 tops, as it melted my tag light wiring, I did get a $70 refund, however, I still do not see it as good value for money (VFM).
In fact, if you get Mikes kit and make yourself some small "L" brackets out of aluminum and drill a hole in both ends, one that the indicator stalk will fit through and one that the tag bolt will fit then you will probably be ok.
You could then mount your indicators next to the license plate just as the CW kit does.

Sounds like a pretty good idea. I am in no hurry to get one. Just yet another item on the mod list that I would like to have.
By the way, how did it melt your wiring? Did it just short out?

It raised the channel that the wiring to the tag light lays in, some of which is exposed.
The heat from the stock exhuast (and the ludicrously lean engine) caused it to get too hot and it simply melted the plastic shielding around the wires and they shorted together.

This is the best part though, that circuit that the 10amp fuse is on runs the running lights and indicators, so, I was without those until I found a parts store and purchased some more (mini 2 prong) 10amps.

I blew two more, not knowing what was the problem, then I just cut through the melted wires and taped them off, haven't had a working tag light since.

A good tip is to buy yourslef some of the fuses, and keep them in thier little plastic box with the sliding lid. Then keep them under the seat, there is a small well under the tool kit that they seem to stay in.
That is also wher I keep some industrial velcro, you never know what you may need to hold together if you go down out in whoop whoop somewhere

Well that sucks it did that. I have the Devils which run way cooler than the stock and Ill take your advice and wrap the wires in some tape to insulate a little extra just in case. Also good idea on the fuses and velcro. I really dont keep anything under the seat due to its size but this would be a necessary addition.
Other than the wireing, how do you feel about the kit? I know its over priced but are the blinkers pretty solid? Does it mount tight and straight?
It sure looks good from your avatar. Id like to see a bigger pic if you have one.
Thanks for your advice.

It does mount good, I keep an eye on the tightness of the bolts as I connect my cargo net to them sometimes.

Virtualt.............I can't take it anymore!!!!

I've got a kickass case of..............pipe envy!!

I tried, and tried to keep her powertrain stock. Send me a link to those Lazer pipes!!!! Quick before I talk myself outta them again. Hey what about getting a cat eliminator piece? Is that where you have to put the O2 sensor?

These pipes are from where? Hungary, Belgium I think I read?

Thanks and................ I hate you for making me hate my stock pipes!


ignorance is bliss?
