Let me lay you out the order of things for it:
1. Ohlings shock. I know where you can get one for $450 shipped
2.Exhaust
3. Map it to map 2. AF1 has mail ECU in service for around $50 I think.
4.Ride the crap out of it with one big smile on your face

haha. I did make you spend some cash this month, didn't I. It's well worth it though IMHO. Tuono is right there with the 9er as far as "best kept secret" goes. Only it is "top secret" where the 9er is more like "confidential". Ohlins shock will make it so much more enjoyable too.

Yes. Not only that, but you've made work for me. I gotta sell some stuff to make room (and help pay back the bank account). All your fault!

At least this Ohlins is cheaper than one for the 9'er...

But this one doesn't have remote preload adjuster, right?

I think there is another version that does have that, and it's pricey as well

AF1 got the same one I sold at $899. That actually makes 9er Ohlins a good deal at $919 (LDH's discounted price) considering T's with the remote preload adjuster is $1300. Wish 9er Ohlins was available without the remote preload adjuster. That silly thing adds $300 to the shock price.

I do appreciate Ohlins remote adjuster on my VFR12 very very much, no messing around with wrenches after/before 2up ride. Don't remember the last time I messed with the preload on my T.

This is a pic of the Super Duke's headlight. It's doing pretty much the same thing as your Tuono. I don't know if it's stress fractures, or what. It doesn't seem to hurt anything. I wouldn't doubt your headlight and mine were made by the same company.

It's most likely road debris. If it were heat damage, you would think it would be more uniform and all over the headlight.

It is absolutely not road debris. There is no sign of a hit. I almost always ride alone. And I would have remembered if something hit me that hard.

It's either stress, poor design, or too thin of "plastic". Add in a healthy dose of vibration for 6 or 7 years, and that's what happens. It looks kind of funky, but it is seemingly harmless.

My old 919 shook 2 sets of GIVI engine guards to death. The little GIVI. Bikini fairing had stress fractures at the mounting holes. And I think it cracked a front fender. I must have liked riding at 5-6000 rpm. Lol. That's just bikes......

Too easy

That has to be the easiest shock swap I've ever done. Maybe 20 minutes?

Stock vs. Ohlins


And on the bike




All that's left is oil change, top off coolant, and cleaning the chain. Should have everything I need by this weekend.

Oh, and removal of some stickers, and re-application of missing graphics.

Changed the oil today and added some Woodcraft frame sliders. Whoever changed the oil last installed the short filter (bike has the cover for the long filter) There was nothing really holding it in place, but it seemed to still be in place on the inner sleeve.

More evidence that even a low mileage bike can use a good going-over.

also change coolant clamps, your T obviously had a leak. AF1 has nice clamp kit with high quality clamps.

Yikes, that's scary, especially on a low mileage bike as that's where you're most likely to get some particles from engine wear-in.

Already ordered Just waiting for them to arrive, along with some other stuff...

Put the graphics back on the tail today; it came out pretty good. I missed the old lines (leftover glue) just slightly, but once I clean it up, you'll never know

No doubt, but it appeared to still be seated. Maybe the suction from the oil pump kept it there? Hopefully no issues. Oil didn't look too bad, so might have been changed recently.

Okay, this wasn't the plan....

I'd seen graphics for the front fairing that add just a touch of color. I like them, so I bought what I thought I was looking for. This is how it turned out:



Whoops! All I wanted was the red/white/green stripe. I thought the sections that show in white would be a clear, matte finish I couldn't tell until I peeled the protective paper off.

Looks a little goofy with no other white bits on the bike. Oh well, will get the knife out tomorrow and do a little slicing and peeling. It sucks, because it actually came out quite good, other than the color.

white looks a little out of place there. I agree with you. I see you are a little bored. Have you checked your rear sprocket carrier/cush drive bolts yet? They are known to get loose

Not yet, probably this weekend.

Need my AF1 order (clamps) to come in so I can put 'er back together. I need to see what the holdup is.

Any benefit to going with clamps from AF1 rather than your local auto parts store to justify the increased cost?

Probably not a big difference, but these appear to be good quality clamps, with a finer thread and better bite (raised edges to meet the screw) than I've normally seen at the parts store. These are also stainless; not sure about the parts store clamps?

I'm sure the others would work fine. Was nice to get the various sizes I needed in a kit, though.

I got them quite a bit cheaper than they are showing now; I think ~$49. Price jumped right after I ordered.

My father always told me regarding clamps, that if its a non heated line, screw clamps are good. However, if it is, the expansion due to heat is where spring clamps shine, and although do wear on tension, are better for the hoses as it expands and contracts with the hose. But times may have changed since his sayings.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Spring claps are known to leak on Tuono. Clamps AF1 sell are high quality clamps, the same type of jubilee clamps you see on German cars. Unlike typical Chinese clamps you get in the store. They are are stainless as well but have those cut slots that can damage the hose.

That's interesting; I'd not heard that before, but it seems to make sense. I'd have left them alone, but they are leaking a small amount. No drips that I can see, but the bike smells like antifreeze when I run it, and the level was low when I bought it.

Looks like I need to do the gas cap fix (o-ring). Did a quick WOT run coming back from the gas station, and when I slowed 'er down, it got a little messy



Other than that, it was a fun ride!

Edit: I wonder if anyone has a video of how to install the o-ring...

I actually came up with a better mod than just the o-ring. Take a flat plastic sheet (Tupperware thin lid works good) cut a ring with the outside diameter to match the rubber gasket under the cap and the inside diameter just a little larger than the diameter of cap (where the gasket sits). Cut/split the ring and slide between the gas cap and rubber gasket. That will push rubber gasket far enough from the cap to make good and even seal. Basically you goal is to make the rubber gasket thicker. O-ring under the gasket works but I think flat wide ring will make the gasket to seal more evenly. If your Tupperware is to thick, the cap will not close without much force, find thinner walled Tupperware.

I am sure that I will get bashed from goog and zaq for this...

Seems you T guys are having to fix to many nuisance issues, not a good way to promote the T.
I was considering the T, the looks are starting to grow on me, but is their build quality that poor that you have to change clamps, fix gaskets, or are certain years just lemons?
Not trying to be a dick or poke the hornets nest ,okay maybe just a little , but they don't sound like they have the build quality that I am used to with Honda.
