The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: speed limiter question
« Last post by Jethrobolas on Today at 09:04:22 am »
To my knowledge, there isn't a "speed" limiter, only a "Rev" limiter within the ECU.

There have been several GPS documented 165 MPH runs (in 5th gear as there's too much wind resistance to go this fast in 6th). The main reason that the C14 "normally" tops out in the 160's is mostly due to the Aerodynamics & Wind Resistance. Oh and the size of the riders balls.......

So Jethrobolas.... How was your bike configured when you made this run? With or Without the hard bags? Do you have the "stock" windscreen or aftermarket? I'd presume that you had the windscreen at it's lowest setting and you were in a "tucked" position, but again, that is just a presumption.

Side cases on, no top case, stock screen full down and I didn’t weasel under the paint but I got tucked in a bit to get my helmet/shoulders  out of the wind.

Rode it to work again but have my top case mounted because I need the storage today so I don’t want to push it too much. Sure makes the 160 mile round trip more tolerable. Long commute because I dislike Chicago but need the money it contains.  Fantastic machine, no doubt. If I could just get the wifey comfortable on it...........and her discomfort has nothing to do with the way I ride...usually.

I know, I am so bad.  I have never removed the gas tank before (even with all the farkling over the years) and I am very leery to do it without my friend helping.  Otherwise I would have at least replaced the air filter, coolant, and dumped the gas tank on my own.  Really, the ONLY reason this stuff has not been done is because of him not being available and my not trusting the dealer to do it right.  I wanted to do it all at the same time (I have quite a list now- all that plus leaky cam seal, valve adjust, TB sync, header bolts, windshield lube, inspection of stuff).  I will start actively pestering him again.... I think he is much more "stable" now.

Why would you need to remove the tank to replace the air filter and coolant? Is that necessary on Gen2s? Not so on the superior Gen1s.    :)

My Gen1 clocked at 185 by friendly police radar, controlled setting.  Not by me.  Balls too small.  It had one of Steve's flashes.  Don't remember which one now.  The C14 is one amazing, little known amazing machine.

Max, don't make me ride my Indian down there and show you how it's done...  Although I've never done maintenance to a Gen 2 bike.  But hey, it's not my bike and I'd love to experiment on yours.  I do have a 'rebuilt' pump with a new screen in it.  Not sure if a Gen 1 pump will work in a Gen 2, though.  Update, that pump is used throughout all model years.

For the most part.  Sigs don't show up to be modified, at least for me.


And for the rest of you knuckleheads, you can hover over a link and see what the url looks like before actually clicking on it.  If it looks remotely suspicious, don't click on it.

Please don't click on it.  I missed that.  Not sure I can get rid of it either.

Top right of the post, any post actually, there's a button/icon and some clickable text "Modify".

Did you click on it max?

Sure I did.  Just some strange foreign site that has zero English on it.

It's pretty small ... can't be too bad, right?

Meh.  I run Linux, and Firefox, and uBlock Origin, and all up-to-date.  It is extremely unlikely anything *I* click on can cause this system any harm.  :)

Still, not bad advice.
