Continental GT Cafe Racer / Re: Power commander v software
« Last post by jefrs on Today at 07:39:49 am »
I'm having trouble understanding what you've done there.  I am assuming you have repaired your laptop and now have a new copy of the Power Commander software installed.
The maps installed on the PCV on your bike are saved there in the PCV, download them into the software and save them to disk (there is an automatic save but I like to give the file name something descriptive, and date). Unless you can recover your hard disk the old maps have been lost. A local computer store may offer recovery service, they do here, results can be patchy, broken files etc, but the bulk of your files may be intact. Backup is better.

Yes, do re-calibrate the TPS, do this every time you operate the software connected to the bike. The TPS output has a habit of changing slightly between sessions.

I have a home network with backup on the router, plus cloud backup.
The files on the laptop can be accessed (wifi) by the desktop (big, powerful, on a desk in the house), they're shared, which means I can more easily analyse them as spread sheets, and can plan and make modifications before taking the laptop back into the bike shed. Backup is important, send the files to a completely separate disk somewhere.
You may be able to re-obtain your original maps from your supplier. Did you have dyno work done, they may have saved your maps?

Awesome bike.  8)
I couldn't find anything easily from UK Department of Transport but I could have just as easily missed it, but the following links is where I had it in my head then that the OBD1 was a requirement.

There's this from MCN:

And from UK insurer Bennets:

Interesting reading nonetheless. I think there's a thread in Campfire as well.

Wet today but didn't feel too wishy washy. Perhaps a small adjustment. Will take the screen off to see the effect (just as get I get it more or less spot on lol)

So next question. I would think that tyres for tubes are stiffer than tubeless, even if they are fitted with a tube as that would explain Avon 9for example) minimum recommendations? I know I've read somewhere that you should knock some of the speed rating off a tubeless tyre if fitting with a tube.

Ok, so back in 2013 I had my 2008 Iron Barrel modified with the Ace Fireball performance package.The full Monty! Tom got the headwork done for me, Chumma worked over the bottom end, I put it all back together. All was well until the timing went way advanced resulting in me needing the barrel to be re honed and  new rings and piston. (my bad) Once it was all back together the bike started burning oil and fouling plugs. no matter what I did I couldn't get it to stop fouling plugs. This is when Chumma offered to go over the bike for me and iron things out. So I sent him the bike. While he had it though, he mentioned a new way he was truing the cranks. I gave him the Go and,am  glad I did. The crank is now trued to .001" resulting in this thing being the smoothest single I've ever ridden. He also said they started doing an upgrade on builds where he mills the timing side case to accommodate a larger, more robust bearing. The stock bearing on the timing side is a 205, the drive side has a 305. As the motor runs there is considerable crank flex. The bearings take all the lateral load. The 205 is a hair undersized and is prone to failure on these bikes. They use a very high quality 205 bearing in their builds. Still, the only fireball which has had an engine mishap was a spun 205 bearing which happened after 35k miles. The new bearing Chumma has been using is a 2205 which is deeper and rated at 34KN of load strength. The 305 is rated at 37.5KN, and the original 205 comes in at 27KN. The 2205 is a better match to offset the crank load under flex. So this upgrade went into my build as well. Now, its time to tackle that fouling issue. Im sure Chumma thought this issue was going to be easy peasy.  But much to our chagrin, the engine kept fouling plugs. It wasnt until after pulling the bike apart a few times and alot of persistence did Chumma  trace the problem to the head even though all looked well there. Well,after stripping the head, and with the help of Aniket Vardhan( yes, Chumma had recruted the help of Aniket by this time. Did I mention these guys are terrific!) I'm not sure how they even saw it but, they noticed several tiny pinholes had worn thru the ceiling of the intake port right into where the intake valve spring seats. the metal there was only paper thin! Oil was being sucked  into the combustion chamber via the rocker & valve spring area. Once Chumma repaired this area the bike went back together nicely. I,ve had it back for about a week now and I'm really impressed. It starts on the first kick. Every time. unless I chump it! (like leaving the kill switch on). when I twist the throttle,it has a honking snarl that is rather melodic! Man,It pulls like a freight train.The power that comes on after 4k rpm is surprising I have to watch it though, because before I know it, I'm going way faster, way faster! Awesome! So if anyone wants to know. Yes you can get a Bitchen Ride from an Indian made, britsh designed, antiquated, Iron barrel Bullet! Ace Engineering is the place to make it happen.Just askfor Chumma. tell him I sent you! Ive included a Youtube link if you want to see and hear what Im talking about.The sound quality is not too hot but, you will get the idea.

That just looks like it belongs there. Nice to see what looks like one of the Ace/Otto air filters being put to good use.

Thanks Haggis; that clears up the mystery for me nicely. Basically RE has (re) introduced a system similar to the one Triumph abandoned so that it could meet Euro IV. Go figure. My guess is that the RE has such a low specific output that it can still just about get past the emissions level. Most Triumph owners binned the air injection system anyway; I guess Id do the same if I had one on the RE. Mine runs very nicely with a carb anyway.
