  1. Much easier to get a Windows Laptop...after finding the port, it's a piece of cake to work it.

    fuel efficiency

    All the dash lights can be converted to LED, with the exception of the one that governs the turn signals/blinkers...those only work on 1 side if converted to LED. But having brighter LED's on the rest of the dash lights (and coupled with the jeweled screen) really is a nice modernization touch.
  3. Any more closeup pics of the Guzzi with the sidecar there in the background? Looks like a fun get together as always!
  4. I hope it turns out to be a good one. If I can make one route suggestion that I can guarantee will put a massive smile on your face and memories for years…when you do decide to ride it back…head north from Boise to Lewiston and then ride to Lolo, Montana along highway 12…truly one of the most beautiful rides in the country. Follows the Lewis & Clark trail. An overnight stop near Or past Kooskia will be legendary. From there, head to Red Lodge Montana and ride the Beartooth highway into Wyoming to the top of Yellowstone, then take the Chief Joseph scenic highway to Cody, Wyoming. Heading south from Cody thru Thermopolis you will go thru the Wind River canyon, another very scenic stretch before the wide open and windy plains of Wyoming. its all downhill from there on a wonderful ride thru Wyoming, Utah (Dinosaur monument), and needless to say Colorado is unlimited in amazing roads. Hope it’s a good one!!
  5. Lovely bike...a friend had a 1000 Interceptor also back in 1985/86 that he let me ride often enough while I was at the university. I've often thought about finding one again...that bike was intoxicating, smooth and far too fast! Ripping around the streets of La Jolla and surrounding San Diego towns on it was amazing!
  6. Far too much bike for most of us (well me at least) to want to ride on a daily basis, but beautiful to look at. Would certainly make getting around the Grand Tour of Texas almost completely effortless!!
  7. Great pics...interesting color combo on the Norge...never seen that before!
  8. From very recent experience, be careful getting DeOxit on the soft rubber seals (like the one on the TPS) or the ones connecting ECU's on later CARC bikes as the chemicals cause the rubber to swell, which then get pinched when snapping the connector back in place, and then frequently cause a tear or not completely seated seal.
  9. Lesson #1 is? How to set TPS with a Casper cable while simultaneously admiring a fleet of V11’s!!
  10. Good find on the video, that's my friend Ben's new V100 here in Houston out with a couple of other riders in our group on BMW's, anniversary edition R90T and the new GS1250 water cooled. The new V100 is a lovely bike indeed. I'm hoping he'll let me ride it on our next outing! A pic of the old vs. the new!
  11. 100%...excellent point to mention Audiomick!
  12. One thing to bear in mind P6X is that the Stelvio, particularly the NTX version which has the larger 8.5 gallon gas tank aside from being heavier, will also be a lot more top heavy. Maneuvering it around will require more strength/caution than the V11. But both the Norge and the Stelvio have great carrying capacity and are fantastic for long distance journeys.
  13. Highly recommend reading the Guzzidiag tutorial to get familiar with the functionality of Guzzidiag. There are 3 programs: Guzzidiag (reads and resets parameters, sets CO trim, reads faults) Reader - reads and saves your map (bin file) currently on the ECU, you should create a directory on your PC where you will save this bin file. Name it Original with a date xxxx.bin, so you will remember what it is later on. Writer - writes a new map (bin file) to your ECU - this is the Meinolf bin file, or if you have another one from another source. You will need to download these 3 .exe files to a folder on your PC. Once you read thru the Guzzidiag tutorial, and assuming all connects, you should make sure you save your existing map (bin file) to your PC. Generally Windows works more reliably than Mac. Once and ONLY once you have successfully saved your existing map to your PC AND verified you see it in the folder you have created on your PC, then you can close the Reader program. Next, open the Writer program, and select the new map you will have either downloaded from Meinolf or other source. Use the Writer program now to WRITE the new map (bin file) to your ECU. The program will tell you if you have been successful writing the program. Follow the rest of the tutorial, do the full tune up, and ride!
  14. ...and this is what drove me mad for a while as well, when I fiddled with my TPS for the first time as well a few months ago...hopefully the new one solves the problem. It would be nice if these mechanical devices would have a digital readout on them so one could see it all the time w/o having to connect up the Casper cable all the time to measure it. Of course, an easier way to adjust the right hand side idle screw would also be nice, it's a royal PITA to get to all of the time... All the best on finding the culprit...nothing like an annoying cough, surely there's some Robitussin for these V11's one could apply w/o having to go thru so many gyrations!
  15. I can truly relate to this Docc, it took me several, well many attempts to get the TPS all working…it’s too sensitive a system but so be it…once charmed into position, it is fantastic. I had replaced my TPS as well based on your recommendation so hopefully that solves your issue as well. Worst case scenario the fuel injectors need reconditioning to fine tune it…I wish there was some after market modification to the TPS… Out of curiosity what do you set your valves to? Hopefully all Comes together in time for the Spring raid!
