RE: Best powervalve setting for higher revs?
Just wondering what's the best powervalve setting for high revs? Where should the little holes in the plastic thing line up?
Only thing not stock is my gianelli exhaust
What setup do you have now? Is the power valve connected/active? Or are you positioning power valve in fixed position.
Also, just to be clear, I don't believe anyone on this forum would be inclined to use information posted for criminal ends, I hope that we all share a passion for these bikes and enjoy sharing information if it helps someone else out.
Unfortunately there are people online that take advantage where they can.
I am sure I could not have completed what I have without the valuable input of many people on here, for which I am massively grateful and I will continue to share what I have learnt if I can.
It was not a eurolock or padlock, just the first line of defence and it did it's job, even broken could not be opened without key. Getting to feel the same way Calum, but trying to believe was a random event rather than a targeted attack. I live in a relatively good area (whatever that is these days) and am overly aware of threat posed by scumbag looking to steal my belongings and have taken every measure to ensure I have done as much as possible to stop them. Looking at commercial grade roller door and can at least disable power so it won't open under any instance, saw one earlier this year at a property near a friend and looked strong bar driving a vehicle at it. Have been considering for a while mainly for the convenience side but seems my hand is being forced. The door I have is not weak by any means and has been reinforced, but just looks like a standard (ish) from outside maybe inviting attack.
Sadly I will be keeping a lid on my projects in the future which is a shame as I enjoy sharing my highs and lows, let's hope I am proved right and it was just a random event. Will be checking with neighbours as it's a bit "twitchy net curtains" round here and 2 retired cops close enough.
Anyway, enough said, had a good ride today and going shopping tomorrow for a mountain lion to shackle to my garage floor.
Seems that time of year where the lowlife creep out from under their rocks is here. Had an unsuccessful attempt to gain entry to my garage, without going in to too much detail the barrel of the first lock has been snapped out, fortunately lock still would not open without key. Would have been pointless anyway as multiple locking on garage door. Always careful and never have door open when I am working and never leave bikes outside in plain view, wary of anyone following me home also.
On a positive note had a decent ride this evening covering over 50 miles on mainly country roads and along the seafront with friends. Garage door is now securely fixed and will be looking to install electric roller door asap.
