Re: new R1150R owner---best torque wrench range?

Tough to have just one but I have a suggestion to help you decide, AVOID using torque wrenches in the bottom and top 10% of their rated range, typically inaccurate, for example, I used to use a 36 ft-lb torque driver which went down to 3 ft-lb but torque calibration proved it was off, so we would co...

Re: Bevel box to swingarm bearing upgrade kit ???

Been down this road several times, I put my replacement bearings or bushings in the same way nushing.com showed (i.e. all thread, nuts, washers and select sockets), both bearing and bushing work, bushing looks tougher and mine still good, I use moly paste on them, I DID NEED to do some lathe sanding...

Re: Excessive Heat ?! Please Help

Besides fiddling with the mixture screws and diagnostics is there any other sensors or anything that might give thru the wrong readings? Be careful here, by "mixture screws" I hope you mean the Big Brass Screws (BBS) which simply fine tune the air flow through the throttle bodies to balan...

Re: Excessive Heat ?! Please Help

...If you're running lean it's going to make a big difference in the heat it puts out. Since you've removed the airbox and put on a free flow exhaust those both could contribute to a lean condition. I'd mainly be concerned with a leak around the injector. If it's sucking air somewhere it's going to...

Re: Excessive Heat ?! Please Help

I run a 2 ft fan in front of my bikes when tuning them. Suggest you do the same and see if you still think it is too hot. Bike will get hot even with fan but I've played with mine in mid Maryland summer (hot air with humidity) for up to a half an hour. It would get hot but never too hot and felt lik...
