  1. I found this short vid by Gale Banks (he sure knows a thing or two about pow-wuh!) with air density data interesting. I often wonder on Ozzie summer days just to what degree our stock intake box perched between two combustion chambers shedding heat - ends up baking the air charge prior to the intake valve opening. Would wrapping in some reflective insulation which claim to reflect heat continuously up to 260°C & intermittently up to 400°C be worthwhile as in performance gains - or futile exercise?
  2. Good info fella’s These tips are helpful Made memo to myself to check state of my own 👍😎
  3. 😇 Some of the kids who discovered me from my 'F.E.A.R.' record or one of the U.N.K.L.E. tunes have said, 'I don't even like the Roses; I love your solo stuff." I buzz off that. - lan Brown

  5. https://www.guzzifan.com/moto-guzzi-tuning-codes-infos-tips/ Also recommended: After install for the first two rides on seperate days an adaptation procedure was followed: 1. Start engine & allow to idle for 5 minutes. 2. Drive vehicle for 5 minutes between 20 & 30 MPH. Do not allow RPM’s to exceed 3000 RPM’s. 3. Drive vehicle for 15 minutes between 40 & 60 MPH. Do not allow RPM’s to exceed 3000 RPM’s. 4. Stop vehicle & allow to idle for 5 minutes.

  7. My sensor bung site was relocated when I installed my MassMoto crossover Miro Kacur. With regards to yours abutting the frame the width difference is effectively 2.5mm wider each side than your stock sensor - I’m guessing it’s lightly touching otherwise you wouldn’t have been able to line it up & screw it in otherwise. Although I agree touching is not ideal. So what to do as a solution? Well, in the first instance I’d probably release all the clamps around the stock collector joining the stock pipes & tug & pull, yank & twist to try & gain an extra 1 or 2mm of clearance if possible. Swearing & banging with & rubber mallet might help too! Maybe even give it a start & some blipping revs or short ride with those pipe joints loose & try to bang squeeze some sort of wedge in there like a hacksaw blade - hopefully any engine twisting in frame with loose joint will help some readjustment. Then after tightening pipe joints remove wedge & hopefully have some sort of resettlement with 1 or 2mm clearance. Bush fixes I’d try first. If all that malarkey fails just get new bung fitted wherever you’d think appropriate. On my relocation site choice I researched first that O2 sensors should be reasonably close to exhaust valve exit - from memory I think it was recommended like 12-18 inches - but you can check. They like a hot temperature environment - & with no possibility of contamination of outside air from end pipe ingress. Finally imo - I’d worry less than you & being happy I’d simply managed to screw it in place - just plug in & go ride as is & test the new differences to your bike. It’s your call MK in best routes to alleviating the frame rub I’m looking forward to your report back on your bikes behaviour 👍😎 Ps. Mine after long period of time now - remains completely smooth & 100% hiccup snatch free Totally recommend for 15RC fitted V11’s

  9. How many times can a man turn his head, pretending he just doesn't see? The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
  10. Rodriguez was compared to contemporaries such as Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens. Many of his songs boosted anti-apartheid protest culture in South Africa where his work influenced the music scene at the time and was also a considerable influence on a generation drafted, mostly unwillingly, to the then whites-only South African military.
  11. Whoa up there pilgrim! 😏 ‘Frenzy’ behooves a balanced review…
  12. …& while clogged red kerchief’s hoot & stick fingers up the dyke we’re maybe breakthrough
  13. I’ll sign up for a glossy black carbon weave hump - if this all succeeds After some gravel corrugated roads riding my hump fell off at high speed when back on the bitumen Lucky to have noticed on filling up at next gas station so retraced my route some 15 kms & found it Guess the new carbon weave job will sort out even better than getting original fixed
  14. Killer line by Junior ”The irony is that’s the parody what’s taken over - that’s the irony” Huh! Sounds just like the New Normal Everyone’ll wake up - whether early or late there’s no debate
  15. Sometimes out riding I’ll be exploring new roads & it just ends up in a absolute confused mess - those occasions I just turn round & go back. Even if it feels like I wasted my time I suppose I found out something - not all progress ends up going in the right direction! Sure I’m not the only one
  16. When I look down I’ve noticed my barrels are also out of alignment I cope ‘cos studies have found ‘asymmetry’ adds beauty… 🤓
