  1. I have put TCS thru it's paces, it works really well😵.. Did you know 2WDW has multiple tuning software options 😏... I highly recommend Woolich Racing software and the Race Kit add-on...
  2. You would have gotten a letter in the mail if your bike was effected... The studs didn't have loctite applied when pressed in, that was the problem...
  3. TCS needs to be "off"= you will see it lit up... Otherwise the front wheel only goes 2 beer cans high... Press and hold down the TCS button to toggle "on/off"... Bike must be completely stopped for it to "toggle"...
  4. Correct... You also need the forum decoder ring to see the hidden goodies 😉
  5. First oil change should have happened in the first 5-10 miles to remove all the assembly lube/junk... Then I follow an oil change at 600miles, then Oil changes for me are when the shifting feels clunky vs using for "x" amount of miles... I'm not entirely convinced to spend a few more dollars in fancy blend oils/ full synthetic when im getting similar amount of miles before I feel the shifting is clunky... Oils and oil change is like picking a religion... REG OLE YAMALUBE is my choice...
  6. I would test ride both the MT-07 and Tracer900... My reason is the MT-07 has no "electronic throttle"- just a good ole cable system all the way to the throttle bodies... The Tracer900 has an "electronic throttle"- has a very small cable system leading to an electronic motor that opens/close the throttle bodies and very quick to react to stuble wrist movements... Also both bikes have two very different engine sensations/ power delivery... The MT-07- tractor like torque feeling in all gears(low to mid range power)...Tracer900- caged cheetah always ready to run( low mid-range to redline power)...
  7. 6th gear is still going strong at 10k rpms 🤯(more than double the national speed limit at that point) .. I skip 1st gear( it's my Launch Control trigger 🙄).. Take off in 2nd... 1st and 2nd are too close in MPH... This motor is happy as pig in mud above 4.5k rpms...
  8. the plug is buried... no pictures but you should find the right one...
  9. A MT-07 might be a better choice for a "small island" by my standards... The biggest advantage the Tracer900 has over the MT-09 is top speed when above 100mph+ both are darn near equal in the 1/8th mile with Tracer 900 getting the advantage after the 1/8th mile... MT-07 also gets slightly better MPG... If your doing 2up alot, the Tracer 900 is the better choice... From my personal experiences owning both bikes....
  10. The information code should be printed on the spring- First code(4 digits) = length Second code ( IE: 29/90) that's Ohlins code for stiffness ( Ohlins says code 29 is 90nm) Third code is batch number... Here is the stiffness code chart:
  11. Graves Exhaust- the lightest exhaust on the market I know of... A 12oz can of pop/soda pop is heavier than the headers and midpipe combined 🤩
  12. Not gonna melt... It helps keeps dirt and what not out from getting trapped inside the "end cap" and rattling around inside... You can keep it or toss it...
  13. I have kinda followed this thread and had a thought... As much as the top end of the engine has been off, I wonder if the AIS system is kinda wonky giving you all this trouble... Now I'm curious how to test the AIS system for correct operation... Ignore this post if you have removed the AIS system...
  14. Unplug it... Follow the wires from the QS unit on the shift rod...
  15. They can be used below 7k rpms, it's a personal preference.. It's just the "kill time" for IGN is not self adjusting for RPMs which leads to the hard shifting feeling... I have used QS with the ability to adjust the timing at home and found it to be a helluva rabbit hole and always worse than what default settings was... I actually skip 1st gear, it's too close in MPH to 2nd gear... I Take off in 2nd gear unless I'm at the drag strip which I will use 1st gear...
