Hey! I only got two stickers. How come you got 4?
Well , sometimes I still learn the hard-way, stickers application, clean surface---make sure you are paying attention while removing the backing, use left eye only--oops too late, sticker is now rotated 15' clockwise--FYI removing and reapplying sticker may look like it worked--However
using the pressure washer, not a good idea. Hey I found the sticker 2 months later, inside a cardboard box, thought of using superglue to stick it back on. So I made a special request to Santa , it took several tries as it seems the reindeer don't come to Canada too often and seem confused by our postal code system. I have lost count how many times it came back to Steve, I think it was twice, so the third mailing Rudolf must have intercepted it Himself.
And the number I had no control over. But I think Steve must know I am going to plaster my Bike with these, as I can't truly thank him enough, this is like a new improved version of the Versys.
I will include the fact that yes booster plugs do work, but one change, that is impossible to occur with a booster plug or without spending about the same cost as the flash on a new controller to bring the cooling fan on sooner, which the new flash includes .
Yes , for those familiar with air conditioning for residential, using even a window shaker, leaving the air on 24/7 is the correct way, allowing a slight rise during the day to match the outside temperature and dropping the set point at night is the way to operate correctly. Many central air units have a dehumidifier cycle , the first 2 or 3 minutes of the cycle start / compressor is energized , the fan runs at a reduced RPM, this removes moisture from the air, after that time period, the fan increase in RPM. Just a FYI, heat transfer increases with higher humidity** man talking about going off on a tangent** modified the title as I will never find this post if I looked for it.
OK- the connection to air-conditioning and our cooling fan set point to turn on. Many people think that while no one is home during the day while at work, leave the AC off, so they get home** walk in and the heat is overwhelming , on goes the AC, central air or window shaker , so now the AC needs to remove the heat from the furniture, from the walls the heat radiating in from outside, the very first thing that happens is we remove moisture, so our heat transfer is affected. So now the AC unit is trying to remove all that energy ( heat is energy ) it is also trying to keep up with the radiation coming through the walls, so eventually it will shut off, but because it takes time for heat transfer, much of the furniture; walls and floor have retained heat, so on goes the cycle again , so we suck more moisture out of the air, usually too much moisture and it now reduces the efficiency of heat transfer, dries out the air and affects the flooring and real wood furniture.
So leading up to our motorcycle and the flash, the correct way or better way, is to maintain, a, away, and return set point on the T stat, remove only the heat radiating into the house and staying within say 4'C differential ,day or night, I could easily go further but here comes our bike, the flash Steve did, several of us complained about the "fan on
" set point, roughly 214'F, so if you are in traffic, on a hot day, we are 2'F above boiling and the fan comes on, that means the engine and radiator are all with 214'F water plus the energy we are adding with our throttle, FYI , cooling to the radiator stops around 60 KM/HR or something like that Bill at ThermoBob told me and he should know as he is a engineer , I could be off by 10'F but am pretty sure I am close. So with the flash, my fan comes on around 197'F I am now removing heat and what I find is it goes to 205'F maximum and then drops back to 197'F after say 3 to 5 minutes. My engine , winter or summer runs between 187'F and 205'F , my rad cap could completely fail, it will never boil over at a total pressure loss because it never gets that hot. Yes some may question this , think about it, you want to heat water to 197'F, it takes more energy to get to 214'F , a considerably more amount of energy. So if I start removing energy before I get there, I am removing energy more frequently, however my motor is running at a stable set point, even if I crank my motor to 8000 RPM ( below 60 KM/HR)for a short burst to pass someone, I never go over 205'F .
Yes how did 4 stickers get to running a house window shaker and the ECU Flash
?? That is how my brain works,
