You can thank the Bilgemaster's musings for that image.

I would not say it that way, but certainly they are trying to sell me things I don't exactly want and don't care if I even can pay for them. Probably expect me to remove a credit to buy a truck load of these sausages.  :o

Actually that might be a good idea, should I find an CFO who secures the funding.   :D

"Rev-Xtend", seems to not work."

What is Rev-Xtend? Is that on the PCV software?

Hi Bill

It's in the Power Commander V software. As long as yours does Fuel & Ignition (early PCV's only did fuel) it can be turned on.

With the PCV connected to the PC if you click the menu "Power commander tools", then "configure", then "Feature enable and input selections". This will pop up screen with lots of options that can be enabled or disabled.

If you enable Rev-Xtend it will bump the limiter by 500 RPM. If you want to bump it further you need to phone Dynojet for an unlock code.

I think Farmer John is correct on my issue, looking at my ignition map it looks odd past 5k at WOT.

Replaced a cracked inlet stub to cylinder head insulator today. While I was at it I saw that the rubber adapter between throttle body and inlet stub is quite perished and cracked. Tried buying one at the local RE dealer but they've nothing and won't be getting a shipment from India for about 5 months (!).

Hopefully Mr H can come to the rescue.

Maybe you can make something up, that piece looks simple.

Hey Otto. I thought about it but just had an email from H saying they're in stock. Too easy.

Mr. H seems to be the global superpower, the Fort Knox of RE parts. Just a matter of time until conspiracy theories start surrounding it.  :o  ;D

Lucky for us they're here to fill the breech when the factory can't.

Factory has to develop electric motorcycles instead.

That should increase the popularity of the pork brains in milk gravy immensely.
