hi guys.i am riding the FJS400.it seems that it has high fuel intake but just told that it is normal for the japan version of the silverwing.
it got the t_button and also the exhaust control motor valve.
anyone here got experience on it?
will it help if i were to remove the exhaust motor valve and leave as fully open at all times?

I'm sure in Singapore your Japanese version FJS 400 is the restyled 400cc version of the Silver Wing with two separate headlights, black alloy wheels and forks etc. It's currently on sale in mainland European countries where it's called the SW-T 400 or SW-T 600 Silver Wing, and there's ABS and non ABS versions.

We still have the original 2001 onwards FJS 600 Silver Wings on sale in the UK and the US has the similar FCS variant. The newer style Silver Wings you can buy in Singapore have so far not been imported into either country.

At a guess I'd say forum member pippobis2 in Italy is your best man for advice. I think he now rides a SW-T 600 and will know about the 400 version too. Smile

You might think about changing the variator rollers to Dr Pulley sliding weight rollers.

AFAIK That exhaust control valve is there to develop more torque in the lower rpm ranges. So unless there is some sort of a problem with it's operation, or if it is not opening completely, I don't think that you'll notice any difference in performance or economy if you remove that valve. Exhaust control valves are popular on two-stroke racing bikes --so there has to be some advantage to them.

The "T" switch changes the ECM from it's 'normal' de-tuned state to something more like the ECMs of later Silverwings which don't have that "T" option. You'll probably eat up more fuel with the "T" switch activated.

BWT You posted earlier inquiring about a photo of the Combination Meter (Dashboard lighting) circuit board. I replied to you via a PM but so far haven't seen any reply from you.

Chris, evidentally I never received your PM. Try it again, please.

I'm not all that positive that the pinter needles are actually glued to the motor shafts. They do have a 'cap' over the hub which easily pops off, and then I was able to slowly work the pointer/hub off the motorshaft using careful leverage
