Anyone here has Dynojet fitted on their bikes?

 

My M900 has K&N filter and Dynojet fitted. With the Dynojet needles set at #3 groove from the top and fuel mixture set at 1.5 turns out, the bike sputters from takeoff to 80kph. Above 80kph, the bike smoothens out and pulls cleanly. I tried setting needles at #1, #2, #4 groove with fuel mixture 2.5 turns out but the bike runs even worse. I revert back to standard needles & springs set at #3 groove and fuel mixture at 1.5 turns and the bike runs cleanly from takeoff to top.

 

Dynojet recommends needles set at #5 from the top and fuel mixture set at 2.5 turns out (for US models only). I am not sure if the recommended Dynojet settings are applicable to our climate here.

 

Any recommendations???

Tuning the carbs is an art in itself. Getting rid of a flat spot is not as simple as turning the needle in and out, theres the float height, jet size, pilot jet and all that jazz.... :giddy:

 

Sounds like the low end is running alittle rich. Did you modify your intake runners?

I gather as much. Was hoping that someone has already sort it out and save me some time. I guess you know what a pain in the a** it is to disconnect the battery, the ignition wiring, ground wires, the airbox, etc.. just to get to the carbs...

guys sooooo sorry i took so long to reply wasnt online 4 a while.....yup the simple green is as per sol's advice....he was the one who recommended it to me a couple pages back in the thread lol .....28 bucks 4 the all purpose cleaner bought frm laundry junction at AMK ave 5. i use it UNDILUTED because i have some really deep stains. simply spray, scrub with those dish washing sponge until the stain disappears and wash off STRAIGHT away or u risk paint damage (my timing belt cover kena a bit). it made my frame SPOTLESS other than pa little paint chipping which no degreaser can fix, as 4 my engine only about 15% of the stains i can't remove and since i ride an FQ monster it's quite an endorsement. :) hope this helps and sorry for taking so long to reply!

dark_monster,

I leave it on permanently for short periods of times. Depends on mood also. Now I do not leave it cos my bike is very dirty after I returned from Cameron Highlands. I took off the panniers to wash and leave them at home. I will put them back after I have washed my bike. When I leave it on, I will cover my bike wherever I go so that it won't attract attention. They can still be stolen of course if the thief cuts off all the straps (the straps are all under the seat so very difficult to take off).

 

I ordered the panniers thru Motrax33 who is also a member of this forum. The panniers cost me $340. Very expensive man but they are well built.

anybody selling their monster 400? prefer those with twin front brakes

jagermeister,

 

400cc doesn't come stock with twin front disc. Will be expensive to put one in yourself. Anyway, 400cc don't really need twin lah...

 

WE300B,

 

I'm considering letting go my monster. Can call/sms me at 91868281. Mine's a FQ plate, red colour. Well maintained.

Ennio Capasa's "Black Dogo" Monster is Born

Ennio Capasa has designed the most powerful custom Monster ever, based on the Ducati S4RS.

Taking his inspiration from the American dirt-track bikes of the 1970s and 80s and their spectacular performance in rough conditions, Capasa has designed a completely unique motorcycle beast. Assisted by Simone Falcetta, a design specialist, and developed by NCR-Poggipolini, the premium builder of high performance Italian sport bikes, Capasa has inverted the typical design process. Here the designer has adapted to the off road what was originally a street bike. The new bike is perfect for the ultimate C'N'C voyage: "off the beaten track," ready to tackle the toughest of roads.

 

The Black Dogo is like the Argentine Mastif, sinuous and powerful, light and tenacious. The front end of the bike is snub and aggressive, the back lean with a short, curved mudguard. The mufflers and seat are short and compact. The tank is covered by elephant leather and has elasticized bands to carry various objects and travel gear. The rear view mirrors have been substituted with video cameras and the instrument panel with a monitor: solutions up to now unavailable on a production motorcycle.

 

Unlike the Dogo, which is white, Capasa's Ducati C'N'C Monster is black and metal. The fairing is matte black rubber and velvety to the touch. The black frame is bright and shiny. The headlights dark and opaque. The engine is particularly luminous. The tank's elephant skin is black.

 

"I have always loved motorcycles and especially Ducatis. For this reason I began working on the Monster Dogo project right from the beginning of the C'N'C launch," said Ennio Capasa. "My passion has led me to spend more and more time at the Ducati factory in Bologna where Ducati designs and builds its legendary sport motorcycles. Dreaming of building a Ducati C'N'C became somewhat of an obsession for me. A project that I viewed as a challenge and a privilege. Industrial design has always been central to my design interests and I think the results speak to this passion. The Black Dogo is a highly technological and futuristic motorcycle, a bike that I always craved. From the street to the off road, from the city to a dream vacation, aggressive, but sweet to ride... this is the bike I will ride for many years."

 

"It is a great pleasure and true honour that a designer at the level of Ennio Capasa is inspired by our Monster S4RS," commented Federico Minoli, President and CEO of Ducati. "It is testament to the passion and creativity that Ducati continues to enjoy in the worlds of fashion and design."

Check out this Super 4 thread for tyres pricing ......

 

http://www.singaporebikes.com/forum/index....opic=24845&st=0

 

I used to use Sportec, like it for it's road yet occasional track ability. To those guys changing tyres, take the opportunity to install a L air valve, makes it easier to pump air. Also make sure that the shop do a bit of balancing. I purchased my Sportec elsewhere as a mass order, then brought it to Minerva for installation and ballancing at $55.

 

Cheers

For the bags, GIVI has side panniers like the Oxfords. In black. I saw them at Jalan Besar branch about 2 weeks back. Go check it out; may be slightly cheaper.

 

Cheers
