currently have loyds filter,gen 3 fuel controler and triovals. thinking of the timeing wheel. suggestions please.
If you get a Maximus it can adjust the timing so you wouldn't need the timing wheel.i dont plan on to much more stuff for it. i really dont want to go as far as doing cams. i am trying to stay out of the engine as much as i can. the maximus stuff sounds good.
I agree with @VicVisionBulldog if you would just go to a tuner and get that Maximus thing and a DYNO, then you only "loose" the money you paid for the Gen3 fuel controller .... and then you are done with the power mods on this bike,If you get a Maximus it can adjust the timing so you wouldn't need the timing wheel.
With your current setup the timing wheel would smooth out the motor in the first few gears. Like I said I'm very happy with mine. I was surprised at what it did but it was all good.
Nope, I have a CCT and bone stock Exept the gutted muflerI don't know Ricz, I maybe the cheapest here because I haven't done a darn thing to my XR to upgrade performance! Am I the only active member on here who has owned their cross bike for 5+ years and not touched the performance side of it?
which cylinder do you monitor?Seems like we're twins separated at birth as we both like the cheap and easy. Here's what I did and I am very please with the results and the small cost, compared to other methods of tuning. I too have a Lloydz VFCIII fuel controller, but it always bothered me that I was in the dark as to what the AFR ratios were. So I grabbed a used digital AFR meter that a forum member was selling and did a temporary mount on my bike. While riding, I took note of the fuel ratios and adjusted the controller accordingly. Now it runs a tad on the rich side in all conditions, including idle, cruise and acceleration. The huge advantage is its done in REAL WORLD conditions, not on rollers. BTW, I also bought the controller used from a forum member, and those two cost me less than $250. Oh...and my adjustable timing wheel is set to 5+. She runs very strong and smooth now. Here's a link to the meter I have....Its very easy to set up and read and there's good help here from more than just me....
MTX-L PLUS Digital Wideband Air/fuel Ratio Gauge
Did you say you are running with a Lloydz VFCIII? If so, then why a dual sensor when the one I suggested is sufficient according to Dobeck, the mfr of the VFCIII and other Dobeck tuners, no matter what the brand.what about a dual sensor afr guage. one with 2 lines so both cylinders could be monitered. i didnt removed the o2 sensors just unplugged them.
Throttle ring don't increase performance but does 'quicken up' the throttle!TNXR
Same here lots of look good mods but no performance mods. Thinking maybe go to Lloyds in June and have timimg wheel install and throttle ring. Everybody seems to like them. Mine is a 2011 CC.
I guess this is one of those "every engine is different" things. Over the years, I've been reading comments ranging from what PaiN said to "wow, that let out the horses!" The latter is my experience. And so many have it adjusted to so many different degree settings - even those who have mods identical to mine. Its one of those, you pays your money and takes your chances things.I'm going to play the devil's advocate....I've wasted money on two ATS's over the years before I realized they did nothing for my performance and timing advances caused my bike to run severely hot.
