    New headlight

    I used this one actualy: https://www.amazon.ca/LED-EAGLE-DiamondVision-Snowmobile-Motorcycle/dp/B0777NX927/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1534909544&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=eagle+led+h4&dpPl=1&dpID=511dMJOWvZL&ref=plSrch

    How to: FZ-07 throttle body sync

    Yep it could work. However we can't be 100% sure that it does neither :\ We would need a tool that can mesure at 100Hz to make sure that the pulses are averaged enough by the can. I'll try to make it work with my manometer but I would advice to new people to just buy analogue manometers or build one. Otherwise make sure that the digital manometer has at least 100 Hz.

    How to: FZ-07 throttle body sync

    Maybe with the needled valve it works. However I have done some research and contacted the company of the digital manometer, the Perfect-Prime AR1890. It can't be directly used to sync throttle bodies! It only has a sample frequency of 3-10 Hz. The frequency of the engine at Idle is 1300/60=22 Hz. If you want a good average of a cycle, you need around 5 times the frequency sample than the frequency of the thing you mesure. We need at least 100Hz to have a good reading of the average. We have 3-10 Hz! I stress it, the average read by this manometre is completly useless. Maybe if we find a way to diminue the amplitude of the cycle, it could work. But without it, the reading of this manometre is completly false. PS: English isn't my frist language so it's a bit hard to explain. But I learned all this in a course last semester in my mechanical engeneering degree. I think that this effect is called aliasing in english.

    Thx for the input guys! In the meantime I found someone to try those LED eagle bulbs and dam they are good!

    New headlight

    Hi everyone! I'm currently looking to buy a good quality h4 headlight but not expensive (I live in Montreal, Canada). So far I found this led who has great reviews on amazon and on youtube! It's a two bulbs kit and I was wondering if one of you guys would want buy and share the kit with me? https://www.amazon.ca/LED-EAGLE-DiamondVision-Snowmobile-Motorcycle/dp/B0799F7BJF/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1520358148&sr=8-1&keywords=eagle%2Bled%2Bh4&th=1 Also I would be interested if you had option for me that don't involve shipping from the US because it's really expensive uselly between the delivery and the import fees.

    Installation heated grips

    At least it's lower than the bikemaster's one:

    Installation heated grips

    The instruction consist of : 1- Install the grip 2- Wiere the grip to the LCD display 3- Wire the cables or ask your dealership It's the worst instruction I ever saw

    Installation heated grips

    The led headlight seems to draw as much current. I don't have any option left than going for the relay I guess.

    Installation heated grips

    The thing is I have BikeMaster heated grip and they don't stop when the voltage drop. Then I have to use a relay I guess. Maybe I can upgrade my headlamp for a LED? The current reduction might be enough. I'll do some research
  10. Hi everyone, I'm looking to setup next week some heated grips and I would like your opinion for the wiring. Where do you think I should wire the system? I was thinking to use the hot wire from my turn signal and connect the negativ to the chassis. However I'm afraid that the current would be too high (almost 3A) and fry the wires. (I use leds turn signals not bulbs tho). I was also thinking about maybe using a relay to have the + and - coming directly from the battery. But it may be overkill. What are your thoughts? Thanks ! Max

    How to: FZ-07 throttle body sync

    Hey did you try this set up? I have the same manometer as you and last year it was a pain in the ass to do the readings. If it works great I would love to do this next week! Seems like a great idea if there are no leaks. By the way if someone is interested! The best way I think would be to use this sensor: http://cache.freescale.com/files/sensors/doc/data_sheet/MPXV7007.pdf It's 15$ and you can program it with something like an arduino (juste be carefull to have an aquisition rate of at least 100 Hz to have an accurate pressure reading at idle speed). With this you'll be able to have a graph in real time of the pressure and program your own average value (do an average of the 100, 500 or 1000 last readings for exemple). You could also setup buttoms to start and stop the average. You have endless possibilities and full control if you know a bit about programming. I'm too cheap to buy this sensor and do this because I already have my manometer. But if I can sell it on Craiglist or it doesn't work well this year again. I'll buy the sensor and program it with my arduino UNO.
