Hi All,

Started rebuilding front of bike this afternoon, small amount of wiring to do to put back to standard lighting.

Finished building up rear seat unit - which now fits fine

Sounds a bit weird this: I wanted low level cans so I have option of fitting pillion rests, but have built up with R&G hangers.

Good to see it back together again Al Thumbs Up

I've got the Harris hangers on mine so just bought a set of these from ebay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UNIVERSAL-REAR-FOOTREST-ROUND-10MM -FITTING-/400268630141?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item5 d31de987d

I just had to modify them a little as the bolt to hold them on was too big and I didnt want to drill anything out. I took the pags apart, ground off the original bolt and all I have to do if I take a pillion out is undo 1 nut, take the bolt out, put on the crappy peg, put the nut back on Grin No horrible pegs when you dont want them Thumbs Up

Hi Bobba,

Sounds good Thumbs Up

Got me thinking that maybe I could do something similar, maybe with a pin & r clip so I could keep pillion pegs under seat think

Anyway, Arse looking smaller than b4 Laugh

as above i like the akros and glad you went back to standard front end

these bikes need to stay like the way they left the factory as that was perfect and what made it special imo

bit of bling helps but trying to give them a face lift sucks

NOt sure I agree about the facelift, but each has his own opinion which are all valid !

Had fun playing with the front fairing and obviously cured isopons cash flow crisis - lol

Just put the phone down to Roger Ditchfield @ revolution racing - agreed a package of engine mods, gas flowed heads, reprofiled cams, suspension revalve and replacement rearshock.

Am on the lookout for ohlins rear shock, moriwaki high volume airbox and rad fins.

Finished bike should put out approx 135bhp

I said finished, is there such a beast ?

Looks good Al, I must say those Mori cans didn't really do it for me. The Akras look much better.

The only good high volume airbox you can get now is the TurnOne. The guy making them lives down under and has a very busy schedule so you may want to find an used one.

As for the Ohlins... I may know where to find a used HO204 but leave me a few days. Wink

You're not dismantling your wonderful SP2, surely? Confused

I looked into the whole CF airbox/snorkel thing a while back, and aside from the astronomical cost and bling factor, from what I gathered (after speaking to Brett - Mr TurnOne - amongst others) it doesn't really make a huge difference. The consensus seemed to be that unless you're going to do some serious engine mods, improving the airflow doesn't really have much effect.

Plus I've just remembered... didn't someone on here have it all fitted and then reported back that it wasn't worth the hassle?

Looking @ gasflowing heads & reprofiling cams so airflow will become a factor !

Hi All,

Finally got round to fitting PC3 this morning Thumbs Up

Loaded Akra MAP and started up, Battery only just enough charge to fire bike up and now I have a flashing F1 light on the dash. Sad

Hoping that flat battery is the cause, if not, OOOPPS !!!! eek

Charge overnight and check again tommorrow.

The most usual cause of a blinking FI light after a rebuild is forgetting to reconnect either the IAT (top of the airbox) or MAP (air duct) sensor. Many owners learned that the hard way. Wink

Hi K,

I havn't disconnected anything apart from two main ECU connectors you have to take apart to fit the PC

Does anyone have a list (that I can have ) of what the various F1 light blinks mean ?

Ta

Hmmm - Update

PC 3usb connectors connected gives flashing F1 light
PC 3usb removed - No F1 light

Just to check that you have connected the PC3 USB to the negative battery terminal ? apparently it "doesn't like" being connected somewhere else.

I know connecting/disconnecting anything from the battery on my back is a real pain in the arse so some shortcuts possibly get made instead of messing with the stupidly short Honda leads that mean you struggle to stand the battery up to get to the terminals properly.

Must admit, never had an FI light blinking due to a PC issue but did have one related to throttle position sensor that must have been disturbed accidentally or more likely the connector was covered in road shit as my bike has to work in all weathers.

Laugh No what I meant by mentioning it was, in case you had chosen to put that connection onto something other than the negative battery terminal, as I read that the PC doesn't work if you connect it elsewhere.

Best of luck with the FI fault finding.The number of blinks is pretty easy to follow luckily, as me and the SP1 electrics aren't exactly best buddies. smile

Only playin Laugh PC appears ok, took new MAPs fine !!!

I'm thinking fault has to be related to PC connectors somehow as it goes when PC is removed !

Checked again this morning, Battery appears Thumb Down so I've put back on optimate and will check again on Monday, plenty of other bits still need doing so may need new battery next week RollEyes

After you've had it on the optimate and thats given it the green light, disconnect it, measure volts, wait 1/2 to 1 day then check the volts again. If they've dropped below 12v or much below the initial post charge value then its a gonner. A healthy battery should be ideally still showing 12.4v+ for a good few days if not weeks after a full charge.
