Today I removed the wheel weights, then added DYNA BEADS (2oz R, 1.5oz F).
Then I checked the alignment of the sprockets and chain - PERFECT!!!
Now, to help KEEP it aligned (I ALWAYS count the number of "flats" as I adjust, and ensure the same number both sides) I took a punch and "dimpled" the flat that was facing out
then turned it THREE "flats" and dimpled THAT flat w/ TWO punches,
followed by setting it back to the single dimple, then tightening it.
Next I made the HEADS-UP voltage display more easily seen, tho', until I'm SURE it's working right, it's just held w/ electricians tape and a zip-tie! That's it just left of the ignition - RED.
Next item was adding wheel stripes, reflective yellow this time. Here they are using my flash....
I also added some 3M SCOTCHGUARD paint protective film up the rear of the gas tank (to protect it from zippers, etc).
BTW - interesting differences between the Gen 1 and Gen 3: removing the battery will reset your clock to 1PM, but it DOES NOT reset your 'Trip A' or 'Trip B' odometers, UNLIKE Gen 1s....
You do NOT have an FI light come on till it's OK to start - now you'll get a generic red light which covers MANY bases IF it comes on, adding a small emblem in the dash to direct you to the cause (ie - a battery, or radiator, or engine, etc).
The speedometer error is different. Gen 1s had about 6.5% error, while, near as I could compare, the Gen 3 error is between 3 and 4% (100 kms/hr on the GPS indicated as 103 or 104 kms/hr on the speedo, so NOW I need to multiply the number of '500 rpm' units by 10.5 to see whether I'm in 6th or not, as opposed to 11 on the Gen 1.
For instance - 5,500 rpm/ 500 = 11, then * 10.5 = 115 kms/hr IF in 6th gear. Looks like for mph it'll be about 6.5, so (SAME example - 11 * 6.5) = 71.5 mph.
Another FWIW - here's the OEM battery from my 650LT. The wire on the - terminal was added so I could pull the battery out. When I re-installed it I put a key-strap under the battery, which makes it a LOT easier to remove the battery in the future'
BTW - having BOTH "OWNERS MANUALS" (the '09 and the '15) I've compared the specifications, and they are MOSTLY identical. I'll do a separate post on those IF anyone wants to know.
