PostSubject: My wing got more presents than me this Christmas!   Mon Dec 29, 2014 7:17 am

Well it's time to go out in the garage and have a tidy up, move some bikes round and get the Silverwing up on the workbench.
I've got a Toccano Urbano apron to fit to keep the lovely UK rain off whilst riding.
A set of HID lights for main and dipped to fit.
Stiebel horn.
Last but not least Dr Pulley25g sliders.
I also need to fit the power lead for my Garmin Zumo 660.
Then toying with the idea of fitting the Leo Vince can, however some advise on what problems I will be facing coz its a 2004 without cats would be great. Has anyone on here done it, if so how did you get round the bike running lean?

When I fit my leo Vince (on a 2003 so essentially the same bike) I also added a power commander.
Allows you to adjust the air to fuel ratio across the entire range. Smoothes out the power band and gets you the best acceleration.

How do you get the power lead for sat nav in? Do you have to take all the plastic off?

No presents for the scooter! I, on the other hand, got a tube of "Chamois But'r", the bicyclists cure for monkey butt, so, it sorta kinda was a gift for the SWing and I. My story and I'm sticking to it!

Dan,
How has the Power Commander worked out for you so far? Been thinking about the 8552 muffler and maybe a PC for the summer.

Thanks,

Rick

Gee, does that mean that your riding buddy has to But'r up your butt when you're on a multi day ride? Ooo, leather & but'r... that's so Butch.

Show me a scooterist who rides side saddle...

No, Tim.Buttering up is still self service only! But I have a true story from sports car racing days and a friend's polo nodal cyst, and duct tape! But this is a family site, so it shall remain unpublished!

You simply plug the sat nav lead into the 12v power socket in the left side glovebox pocket. Usually you'll have to crimp a 12v plug onto the power lead as both the TomTom and Garmin sat navs I've used only had plugs fitted to the leads supplied for car use.

I've already got all the stuff I need for my Silver Wing so this year I started buying presents for my Dutch push bike.
