  1. Past hour
  2. Installed a new chain last night. Realized that while I'd always meant to remove the sprocket cover and clean out in there but never did. Under that sprocket cover was a golf ball sized lump of grease, rocks, a bolt, and broken chain o-rings. I strongly suspect this pile of crap is why I lost so many chain o-rings - that chain only had 20k on it and was always kept at the proper tension, clean and well lubed, but they kept breaking.

    Careful those reverends, they sometimes hold cards up their sleeves. Sure would like to try some of that chili.
  5. I'm the dad that did the install. I wanted to thank all the YouTubers that gave me some insight to different aspects of the install. I also wanted to give some tips. The company has really good customer service. They're in Europe, so there's some delay. The instructions make more sense when your done, which doesn't help when things are apart but it's why there is customer service. The company makes the adapter plate and pieces parts from other companies. I'm an electronics tech by trade and actually had the most issues with the electronics. Really read the schematics when running the wires. Some parts are extra (which throws me off), and some wires actually needed to be cut off. The companies videos are all about the head light itself. That's where I turned to generic youtube topics about the FZ07. Remove all the fairings from the right side. Don't waste time trying to fish wires through. Exposing the frame makes it a lot easier and allows you to remove the bike's computer for even more room to get those wires through. Some of the connectors are poorly crimped (I redid 3) and fishing can stress them out. One part that is difficult is removing the reflector. They want you to use brute strength with a screwdriver and pry it apart. I had this brake caliper tool. It looks like a brake pad with a turn screw through it. It works so much better. The company doesn't tell you what size to make the hole in the rubber boot for the wire grommet. Having a set of calipers really helps. I ended up using a chassis punch instead of a hole saw. It works better, and I happened to have one. Get the extra LED running light. The old lights are yellowish where the new ones are blueish. Having the miss match just looks bad. Hope this helps, Radd

    I just got my bike inspected with 11000+ miles and stock Dunlops passed....just saying. My brother gave me a free rear because it was so stiff he couldn't get it mounted

    Rear shock? How far into Canada are you? I'm on the New York border.

    I did manage to claim the 2019 chili title. Twas a hollow victory however since the reigning champ was not here to defend. The good Reverend and I had had some epic cheater battles over the years. He was our Chaplin and a retired racer but boy could he cheat! Last year he took all my numbered taste cups and replaced them with his numbered cups, then he offered half off a set Dunlop tires for a chili vote. Good stuff. I have no independent recollection of his cookers getting unplugged or how all his Dunlop tires got switched for Bridgestones either. travelling trophy since 2000, and it's all mine, for a year Jim. The best place, The smell of mr12, the sound of a good header, poured rain this morning but you'd never know it now.

    @CarbonSmith I'm really curious how you mounted that rear shock as it's backwards.

    I thought Madama’s intake was on both sides based on this post. Yeah, even CarbonSmith's website has the symmetrical version. CarbonSmith Your Carbon Fiber 3D Printing Service Center
  17. I also have a R6 shock, but it's a 2008 model and is only 17mm short instead of 20mm like the earlier model years. Anyways, I don't know if I'll get to it anytime soon as I've taken on another project that I was putting off for a while and has turned into a big time sync...
  18. Missed Friday practice due to new job , sat out Saturday due to sickness , but nothing keeping me outta Sundays endurance race . Spent much of Saturday monkeying around in the control tower. These folks don't get the credit they deserve keeping the show running so us 'racers' can run around acting the fool like we're big shots or something. The above shot is race control. Out of view below the counter is the kid that man's the Ouija board. Busy folks. Below is race registration in the foreground. Timing and scoring in the background. Race control again in the distance. Cool shet goin on there. Of course there are many others out manning corner stations, safety trucks, course marshalls, grid marshalls, paramedics, bambulances and so on.
  19. Just use an adjustable wrench. No need for a socket.

    Yamaha MT-10. Awesome.
  21. Awesome thread! The pictures and talk of the racing gets my heart pumping. Haven't been on a track in decades. Those Ti rotor bolts . . . WTF? I don't wanna know what that cost. Keep it coming.

    Akrapovic Titanium Alignment/Fitment Issues

    Mine is the same way on my 2016. I think you are correct in saying that exhaust will for on the 2017+ MT-07. The crossover is designed to be a "loose" fit, they are designed way so when things heat up, they can have room to expand and contract as needed. The reason there is a crossover pipe, is so when one cylinder fires, it creates a negative pressure in that head pipe. That negative pressure gets transferred to the second head pipe via the crossover. Then when to other cylinder fires, there is already a negative pressure in the head pipe. This helps extract the hot exhaust gases out of the exhaust more efficiently, increasing performance. When you plug the end of the exhaust, the exhaust gases WILL escape anyway possible (through the crossover). Being that the crossover is so close the the motor, is at a 90 degree angle to the exhaust flow, and is a much smaller diameter- the exhaust gases flow by the crossover creating a negative pressure. Hope that helps out. Your exhaust looks perfect to me. I absolutely LOVE mine!!!!
  24. No, my solution isn't legal...but still wanted a catch can. I don't like the idea of oil spilling into the filters like the other open box on the market, so I came up with a way where that'll never be an issue:) I will definitely have to something different for MA though when it comes to that point. THAT solution is TBD, lol.

    @CarbonSmith is it possible this will fit under the stock side panels?

    I am happy with the STX. It was the logical choice for me as I am mainly on the road (crappy Michigan roads) 95% of the time. Handles the bumps well and is a vast improvement over the throw away stocker. The DDC’s are working great. I tried the heavier oil before these and the difference is night and day for the better. If you are not tracking the bike a lot I highly recommend. No more nose dive and actually absorbs the bumps well. I only have about 200 miles on the Q3+’s and 3/4 of those have been in the rain unfortunately. I am a fair weather rider that got caught last weekend. I think with them being new it didn’t help. I had the rear step out a couple of times and the pucker factor was high. In the dry they are fantastic. I need to get some more miles on them. Overall I am very content with the current set up.
  27. You’re gonna have a great time at the track! Keep the shiny side up Ed
