  1. Me neither... The Motoplat have long gone and been exchanged for Carmo Electronic ones. PO did that.
  2. I JUST edited the initial post to clarify this indeed... Part on my V65 Florida. All it states on there are the letters "ART" and "083".
  3. Awesome... Anyone who can shine a light on which part this is and it's function? I can't locate it on the wiring diagram... Edit: it is a part on my V65 Florida, not the V11...
  4. Thanks for the answers! It is now clear to me that my know-how of low-voltage DC systems is far to limited to fully understand the mechanics behind this, but my question on fooling the system has been answered. I'm also not aware on how much the charging system on a V65 Florida (smallblock) is similar to that of the V11. I do have another question regarding the electric system on these bikes, but I need to take a picture tonight first before I can ask. Will update once done. If this topic needs to be moved to "older models" for any further, V65 Florida questions, please do so.
  5. Hey all, I'm asking this not specifically for a V11, but it does apply to one as well, hence I am still posting this in the Tech Topics section instead of the motorcycle-specific one (older models in this case). Please move the topic if my "bending of the rules is not appreciated". If I were to consider installing a Li-ion battery on my V11 (actually in my V65 Florida build), there is a chance the output of the regulator will be too high for the Li-ion battery. Where an AGM likes to charge at 14.5-14.8v, most Li-ions charge at a maximum of 14.5, preferably less then 14v. Norma
  6. Indeed, please support the engine on the front when you do this. It is doable by rotating the front subframe forward, BUT. I did this and snapped the inlet of the fuel pump right off. You don't really feel the resistance of the hose and it is very brittle.
  7. I did it on a 2001 RM with (soft) chinpad. I'll upload my pics and learnings tomorrow, now time for a beer first Edit: So yeah, I bought a SW Motech daypack and Aprilia tankring (don't know which one, but it originally fits a 2001 ETV 1000 Caponord). When installed directly, the chinpad prevents the bag from locking into place (as expected). So I made spacers (9mm) to raise the tank ring straight up. The bag fit perfectly! However the fuel filler cap would not open anymore, it hit the tank ring as it was now raised. I removed the rear spacers and cut down the front ones (made from 8
  8. I have managed to order these at https://www.schellen-shop.de/ for my Aprilia Caponord. Do not forget these normally come with NBR o-rings, which does not do well with (modern partly-ethanol) fuels. They sell replacement Viton o-rings, suggest to order these and replace prior to installation. I'm considering these for my V11 as well on the next tank removal, as my fuel tap is sh*t as well.
  9. Out of curiosity (I am not experiencing any netative effects from the exhaust system), do you connect up the crossover connections using a sealing paste/gun gum?
  10. I've had these exact symptoms when hot. It seemed like coming down in rpm, she picks up just too late again and dies. Start again and she fires right up. Does your idle rpm vary a lot from warm to hot? Because mine did. After normal riding for 30min it was 1250rpm, but after a spirited ride through town (lots of stop and go, lots of accelleration) or coming off the highway to a stop, she went down to 1000rpm, which she does not like to idle at. I've solved this by mastering the Decent Tune Up as quoted by docc. Took me 3 attempts to get right, but the problem has been away for 2 yea
  11. Here is a picture of a well-maintained, indoors-kept CaliVin tank inside....
  12. Replaced the tank protection pad as it was letting go. Had a lot of doubts about the position of the new one, but chose behind the seat and am happy with it. Old: New: There was surprisingly little discoloration of the paint underneath the pad.
  13. I was using GuzziDiag to set it, but it is just more of a pain when she does not want to run (and needs at least 60deg C of engine temp). Thanks, I was using the wrong XDF and could not find the CO trim value.
  14. Update! Finished the "service + +++". Here comes the tale of sorting out a multi-owner, 66.000km CalVin. In addition to a "normal" dealer full service (as it should be at least), I did the following: - Replaced shifter+foot brake lever bushes - Replaced driveshaft+bearing as the front u-joint had a flat spot and the support bearing was loose from the shaft) - Adjusted throttle cable slack (it was about 1/5th of a handle turn! How do people drive like that?!) - Replaced fuel filter (there was rust in the tank, removed it, filter was full of brown particles as well). Replaced the
  15. The bearing went easily on the shaft (with heat/freezer and a good whack with a hammer on the inner race). Getting the assembly in the rear swingarm was a whole different ball game. Eventually, with some carefully used force, she went in.
