I just penciled out the math and got...200 kph=124.27423845 mph.  :)

Off topic...
I was 4 mph off.... I just estimated.  Too many decimal points....

Can somebody tell me what kind of impact the reflash has on fuel consumption?  Thanx in advance for your reply

What Max said. I have the reflash and no difference in fuel economy except after I first got it I was enjoying the right wrist more then usual.

  Well I finally got to ride my new to me  Connie to work today.  Not a bike ride but 60 miles round trip. Even got to break it in, I got half way to work and it started raining. By the looks of this bike it had never seen rain.  That changed in a hurry. Most of the little changes I have made are great. Just need to get my new seat.  I never liked the stock seat on any other Concours I have had.  My new Corbin should be in within a couple of days.

Glad you got a ride in today.  Off today, and it stayed in the low 50's, cool for here.  Went for a two hour ride.  Fingers got cold, but the time out on the bike was refreshing.  Riding it to work the rest of the week, as it is just getting warmer by day, and no more rain.  Hope others get to ride soon, too.  tp

Yup. I agree, nice 200km Hwy run does a soul good. I had to see if the Dyna Beads did there job. And yea they did.

 200kph  I wish , the local speed tax collectors frown on that kind of behavior. And as for the Dyna Beads effecting the TPSM I don't know why they would. Beads run on the out side , the sensors are on the rim. I had a close look and even removed one of the sensors, took it a part to see if I wanted to change the batteries while I had the tires off. Changed my mind after seeing the power leads are soldered to the battery. Reinstalled and they work fine. 

As for the Dyna Beads. I have had good success with them in the past. I did have to add an extra oz of beads to the rear tire to get as smooth as I wanted. So 1oz in the front - 3oz in the rear.

Also would like to give an update on the hand delectors. they work awesome. I rode in +5C with my thin Okley gloves and didn't feel any cold or wind. There is also hardly any wind hitting my arms and shoulders.

Tomp. Look on the Farkles thread. They are called."Hand Wind Deflectors'" they ship from Taiwan but don't let that scare you. Shipping was about 12 days to Canada. Quality is good. I bend the mounts in my vice to have them match the angle of the windshield in the down position. Just a little tweek and they are perfect.

Thanks guys.  Rode to work in the cool and dark this AM.  Just rode home; cloudy, damp, still cool, but good a ride and glad to be back home.  Messing with my RT now.  tp

I found ProjektD AeroWings.  They are $78.00.  Will look more later... tp

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.
    • C-14 farkles you almost cannot ride without.

For whatever it is worth.... I have two sets of hard guards, a set of customs made by a long- ago member of this forum named Metalbender, and a set of Baker hand wings. The Metalbenders are bigger and work slightly better in the deepest part of the winter but overall, the Bakers are outstanding because they can be turned more than 90 degrees and actually blow cool air into the cockpit (Easy Boys!). Good stuff and it will greatly increase temperature comfort on the C-14 in the summer.... and I say that being in an area that does not have a 'summer' anywhere near as bad as yours....

Thanks Brian. Baker makes two styles for the 08-09's. Great considerations there, too.$65-80 a set.

Here is a thread from The Pope who put together an excellent ram mount based set of deflectors...
