How is the fuelling on the bike ???
Would it need a PC5 ???, most of the posts I've seen have been rather positive
I think the fuelling is not too bad, the (minor) problem lies with the "fly by wire". There are times when it does not deliver the instantaneous and very fine control that you have with the old mechanical system. I had my last 2012 FJR running exceptionally well with the PCV, Autotune, and careful adjustment of throttle bodies and throttle cables. It responded better than this one.
Mind you, I had only done 850 Km before I crashed it, and I hadn't done any tuning. I think I probably will fit a PCV and Autotune later.
Oh, the low power mode is hopeless, I don't think I will ever use it.
I rode the bike for the first time yesterday, and this morning, to work and back, after doing this modification and fixing the crash damage, and the engine responce has definitely improved. The slight hesitation when opening the throttle has gone, and the motor pulls smooth and clean right through the rev range.
In fact, the bike tends to jump away from a stop, or out of a corner, rather more vigorously than I sometimes intend. I'm glad they have put traction control on this bike at last, I think it is going to save my ass before long.
Removed the pipes and plugged everything up as required on my 2016 FJR. Put iridiums in as well. Just back from test ride, bike nice and smooth but engine light on dash stays on and no cruise control. Maybe unplugging the solenoid is causing electrical issues. Your thoughts?
