Thankfully....no. Connectors are both totally different, even my stupid self can't screw it up as they won't match.

I fired her up in the garage just now...on high enrich/choke...seems fine.

It is very wet outside, so my road test will have to wait until tomorrow.

I love this machine, and enjoy riding it so much.

The left handlebar lever isn't a choke and doesn't change the mixture.

Just so I clear up any confusion: like any quality long-term relationship,  I'm willing to put in the work for my baby.

She idled like she had two cylinders after I reattached both conectors...sounds amazing. I enjoy the Mistrals in sound and appearance. They so compliment this machine. 

I'm still obsessed and in love with the V11 Sport.  Can't wait to really scrub in my Diablo IIs tomorrow!

So the issue was the electric fuel tap connector wasn't connected correctly?

Yes. It appears the left throttle cable caught it, and disconnected it. I have since reconnected, and used zip ties to raise both connectors well above the throttle linkage.

Just got off another 40 min ride...she runs a treat. Now that I'm here, my butt dyno feels more than 80hp under me.

My 900SSs are 85hp, and the V11 feels like she pulls so much harder at highway speeds.

Perhaps it is the torque? No matter. She's such a unique pleasure to ride. Wish I got on a Guzzi years ago, but no way in hell I'd ever own a small block Guzzi.

The Big block 1100 has spoiled the hell out of me!

I know. She's fuel injected. Just used the incorrect term.

Just the other day, I tried to remember how many revolutions the ECU runs the richer mapping.  It's an odd number (and it is every time the bike starts, regardless of the engine or ambient temperatures).

@Lucky Phil remembers the number  . . .

4000 revolutions docc.

Thanks, my man. I don't know why I thought it was an odd number . . .

Well docc it's 3984 to be precise.

Haha, well somehow that number blew my brain up and I couldn't retain it.  :blink:

So, as far as the start-up rich condition: four minutes at idle. Yet, I just start-up and leave-out keeping the rpm below 4000 for 6-8 miles. Looks like the "start-up enrichenment" would last a couple minutes once I am underway.
