  1. Are you for real gstallons? ”Don’t be so pernickety.”______________ Anyhoo.. seems if everyone’s more or less on board with Jaap’s sentiment - myself included - I’m not taking umbrage so I’ll just easily move the needle onto the next track… Ah Bob Dylan. Classic. Old political songs are more palatable than fresh protest presumably. Always enjoyed contemplating what Bob had to croon - #1.
  2. "Art and music are the vehicle for the zeitgeist." - HOZIER “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” - Jimi Hendrix
  3. Once had an AMG sharing a Eurotunnel carriage returning to the UK with Eric Clapton & his then bright new yellow 575M Maranello & passed the journey time chatting. He’d been enjoying tapping the performance by himself on the glorious roads of France for a few days… His contented smile struck me when I asked how much horsepower it had, “Dunno” grinning he added, “A lot!”
  4. Ol’ Klaus Schwab’s been resetting my listening lately…
  5. Stock can sound seems decent - would love to hear it higher revs rising
  6. Can’t comment on your actual real life experience of the Irving - but just as a vid comparo this V11 blows it away 😉
  7. I acknowledge your experience sticking with AGM - but it’s also worth seeing the snowmobile guys er.., gelling well with them. 🤤 They obviously can work just fine in subzero conditions - & speaks volumes as it would be more life threatening to get stranded out woop woop in the snow! But as you say… “YMMV”
  8. The symptom’s a ‘hiccup’ - but the actual cause is a ‘brain fart’.
  9. Fair enough - but in that case just get a LiFePO4 snowmobile battery - massive CCA & designed for extreme cold starts. Operating Temperature -30 °C to +60 °C Capacity vs Temperature 25 °C = 100% 0°C = 94% -30°C = 88% https://earthxbatteries.com/product/etz14c/ EarthX seems to have an worthy reputation on snowmobile forums.
  10. Only LiFePO4. Butch : Lead's dead, baby. Lead's dead. “LiFePO4 batteries are the safest of the lithium batteries, because they will not catch fire, and won’t even overheat. Even if you puncture the battery it will not catch fire. This is a massive upgrade over other lithium batteries, which can overheat and catch fire. LifePO4 batteries have the safest lithium chemistry. They weigh up to 70% lighter than lead acid batteries. AGM batteries will do plenty of damage to your wallet, and are at high risk for becoming damaged themselves if you drain them past 50% capacity. Maintaining them can be difficult as well. LiFePO4 Ionic lithium batteries can be discharged completely with no risk of damage. Charge efficiency: a LiFePO4 battery will reach full charge in 2 hours or less. Self-discharge rate when not in use: Only 2% per month. (Compared to 30% for lead acid batteries). Runtime is higher than lead acid batteries/other lithium batteries. Consistent power: same amount of amperage even when below 50% battery life. No maintenance needed.” https://lithiumhub.com/lifepo4-batteries-what-they-are-and-why-theyre-the-best/
  11. Hey VtwinStorm Move on from AGM. All you’re doing is lugging an anchor around - & imo the old PC545’s are waaay overrated now. These have proved to be superior in every way in a V11 - even with Mike Rich HC pistons. Prismatic cells LiFePO4 battery with BMS (battery management system) is best. https://www.batterybusiness.com.au/store/product_detail/ssb-high-performance-lithium-battery-lh7l-bs Listed as suitable for Bimota 1100 SB6 four cylinder & TM 530 thumper engines - so our relatively lower compression twins are a breeze. So small - so light - in time any initial disbelieving trust issues just eventually evaporate away!
  12. Strewth! Popped in for a curious squiz Well… if we’re posting up eclectic tastes that yet somehow strangely fascinates - I’ll join in on the fun & add my weird odd job lot & …see myself out
  13. No knock sensor - I simply assumed it must have one but if not then - thanks. 👍😎 However, we also mustn’t forget the 15RC variant V11’s. The 15RC ECU of my bike has ample ability to adjust to different fuels - the O2 sensor information in closed loop feedback to the 15RC ECU allows for those fuel quality fine adjustments. Looking further into O2 equipped ECU’s - the STFT used for immediate adjustments is based on the O2 sensor detecting exhaust oxygen content changes (several times a second). LTFT learns from those STFT trends - & the adjusted values are then stored in memory. To wit, ”To adjust, or not to adjust, that is the question”
  14. So with regards to the ignition advance timing parameters… If ignition advance is continuously being trimmed subject to inputs - does the ECU receive any further feedback which in effect ‘checks the accuracy’ of those timing adjustments? Or is this something the knock sensor alone limits? For example - it seems the ECU has the ability to retard timing in response to a change in fuel from say 98 to 91 RON & thus avoid the damaging onset of engine knock automatically. So does this capacity extend to an ability to retard automatically in adapting to being dual plugged? Understanding the granularity of ECU timing advance adjusting trims is intriguing!
