I'm telling you.....Bren Tuning.
No need for all that stuff. Mines coming off soon. Shit if you want, return yours and I'll sell you mine for 40cents on the dollar.

My brother axed me once to help change the oil on his 1190 Adventure. What a dumb process that was.

Easier to adjust the ‘squish’ on my 250, and that requires head removal. Not that I personally do it, but you get the idea...

I went back and forth on it between the flash and the stage 6 .... I'm going to see what my numbers on the tune are then see if I I'm headed to Massachusetts Or not

Whats the purpose of the ignition module? Almost 100% sure you can fuck with the timing via the Power Commander 5.

I also like playing Find The Drain Plug on Harleys. Some are just hoses clamped to plugs on the frame. The newest ones are in different places than the older ones.

Changed the final drive oil on a 1974 Moto Guzzi last week. It doesn't have a drain plug, you have to take the bottom of the gear case off!

FXRs, and Softails have that dick you pull out to drain the oil. Not sure if it's a great idea, or a bad one.

It's OK until the hose gets old and breaks while you're going down the road and dumps the oil out on the rear tyre.

Just back from a test.. map one not bad a little slow judging by the seat of the pants but much better then stock.

Throw the little Ranger mini van Switch and activate map 2 and you have yourself a way different animal.. pipe weight is just over 12 pounds ... stock was around 30 with that motor for the exhaust valve and cables..

I dont like the look of the resenator... pretty much a RIP off of the Ak. with a slightly deeper sound.

I eliminated the auto tune... at least for now.
