New Guy

Whats up everyone? Here is my 07' 919 I have made a few mods; sato rear set, TBR carbon fiber dual exhaust, PC USBII (still runs rich!), Renthal ultra low bars, LED blinkers, GPS (very cool set up), cheap mirrors (better than stock micky mouse). I plan on installing a carbon fiber M2 Twill windscreen, SS brake lines, and whatever else I can find. Hope to make some friends and have fun here Thanks.

Wheels side down and ride safe...

Welcome Pig!
Is there any chance you were or are a member of the Yahoo XR650R group or Thumpertalk? Seems I know this name from one of those groups?

pc3 won't fix anything by itself, trying different maps is a guessing game unless you've done some tuning or bother to install a/f meter in the header

take it to a dyno tuner, drop $250...likely they will lean it out compared to whatever you're running now

i've seen flying pigs in action, tankbuster extrordinaire

thanks for all the great replies. I feel at home here. Just got the carbon fiber M2 Twill windscreen seems I am going to spend the day doing some mods to get it on. Any advice beside drilling the holes out?
