I got one of those a couple years back, it comes in handy and barely changes the profile of your bike when it's all zipped up and not in use.

Finally got my quickshifter on. Also had a racing bros shock installed :D

Did you have to mess with kill times at all for the quickshifter? Or were the kill times enabled through the ECU based part of the quickshifter already ideal? Getting ready to order the same shifter but trying to figure out if I need to send my ECU back to 2WDW to adjust kill times.

I had my quickshifter installed by an FTECU dealer, they didn't mess with the times but they did have to enable quickshifting on my ECU

I finally 'washed' mine.  (Read: left outside in the rain while at work to find all the salt off of it.)  And booked an appointment at the shop to get the Leo Vince installed, install the steel-braided brake lines, and get the wheel straightened.

Performed throttle body sync:52055263_tbsyncresize2.thumb.jpg.7c487ebb2d5bd7878e8485f9000d3e1a.jpg

This is by far one of the easiest bikes to perform a throttle body/carb sync on. Love these naked bikes!

Actually did this yesterday...installed woodcraft rear sets. Install was pretty easy, but still not sure about the GP Shift set up. It doesn't quite feel right as sometimes it does not fully shift into either 6th and sometimes 2nd without releasing the clutch. I wonder if I need to move the arm closer to the lever by one spline on the shift shaft. Pics below. Next is to clean an lube the chain.

Can you feel a difference in idle/accel quality? I still havent got around to balancing mine cuz its always ran pretty dang smooth

I couldn't tell much of a difference, then again the idle wasn't rough to begin with. I only checked the MT07 because I was curious and I just got adjusting my brother's SV650. The SV650 was noticeable due to both the TPS sensor and throttle sync was off. It's very easy to check/adjust if you have the proper tools(Manometer and angled flat-bit screwdriver).

I don't even know what it is I'm looking at... can you explain?

@Blitz6804

The process of syncing the throttle bodies for fuel injected multi-cylinder bikes is to verify that all throttle plates(butterflies) are at the same position at idle. If the throttle plates are unbalanced with each other the bike will have a rough idle(most common symptom). If the throttle plates are really out of sync the bike will surge at any throttle position(rare but it can happen).

The actual adjustment we are making to the FZ/MT07 is to the 'bypass air screw', not the throttle valve.

The tool you see hanging from my handle bar is basically a manometer which reads the vacuum the throttle bodies produces when idling. If they are out of sync then you adjust the throttle body(s) via this tool. This procedure is the same for multi-cylinder bikes with carburetors.

 

Here is a video of the process in more detail.

Ideally it's recommended that the angle from the lever to rod be 90°. So yes, It looks like it could help to move the arm one spline or two if the angle is as It appears in the picture. Also make sure your shift lever is fully returning to neutral center position after shifting... a rod that's adjusted too long/short could be preventing that from happening.  

Good luck resolving your issue. 👍

Thanks @DewMan. That makes more sense. And since you stated it in that way, I pulled the instructions and I obliviously did not read it clear enough. The lever does appear to return to the neutral position so I do not think there is an issue with that, just the angle of the rod.

Valter Moto Touring Hadlebar ends with adapters
- Renthal grips, hard 
- New spring in my K-Tech Razor Lite shock, service to the shock, along with upgraded Shim stacks of K-Tech
- Valter Moto Racing Rear Brake Oil Tank
- Factory OEM brake/clutch levers

I installed the mail-in flashed ECU (2WDW) and first ride with a new Corbin seat. It's sweeet! Also, three 1/4" holes in the muffler, no regrets. With the ECU flashed it's feasible to do clutchless upshifts which is cool.

Tomorrow is suspension day. I'm not gonna lie, I don't have any stands and I'm taking it to a nearby shop, the guy has a great reputation. This is my to do list:

done
1. 2WheelDynoWorks Flash (removed snorkel, OEM Exhaust)
2. Corbin gunfighter seat
3. Tank Panels (black)

suspension
1. k-tech razor-r lite shock
2. Cogent DDC damper cartridges + oil

next week may be handlebars, levers, mirrors
