ECU and Fuel Injection / Fuel tank
« Last post by classvtony on May 21, 2019, 12:51:29 AM »
 My tank on the right side has 2  naked hose fittings. Nothing was on them when I bought the bike  and I cannot find any reference to them in the Haynes book.  Actually no reference at all to the 955 I 2001

Ride Reports / Off road course in Western Australia
« Last post by CaptureTheBeer on May 19, 2019, 11:49:31 AM »
G'day all,

I took my Girly to an adventure riding course last weekend at West Moto Park with some mates riding beemers (I don't hold it against them).  It's a good 250km or so from my house with some nice roads in between once out of Perth.  We camped out at the training site with a nice fire as the nights are starting to get a bit chilly ~2°C.

The course was hard work especially for someone who hasn't really ridden off road before.  We started with the basics in low speed maneuvering and braking, then played with higher speeds and letting the back end out, before tying it all together for some gravel rides and single track work.

The Girly took one dirt nap :nap while going around a sandy bit of single track.  I washed out going around a corner and landed on a small fallen tree, given the wheels were off the ground she was a bit of a pig to get upright.  No damage though, the heed crashbars worked well and kept everything protected.

The Girly kept up well with the beemers despite the lack of electrickery, with the weakest part of the Girly package being the nut connecting the handlebars to the seat.

Got a few more courses to go, plus a few gravel adventures lined up with mates over winter.

Cheers Dan

As usual i’ll Digress!!!

The very first few 955 Tigers have different wiring so where I actually fit the dongle takes me 2/3 seconds( at the back of the engine block left side)everyone else sadly has to lift the tank unless folks mod the wiring so comparing the dongle in and out can be done very quickly for me.

In the past i’ve Always felt that it took the edge off the way the engine ran higher up the rev range just not so free revving enough compared to being without it,if your a commuter then it’s a no brainier but I never had to do that on the bike.

Over the years i’d Try it not be happy with the results and forget about it yesterday for what ever reason and certainly since the last time I tried it various electrical things have been changed plus of recent i’ve Been running very good fuel consistently which is something I have not always done but currently the bike is running very well considering I have had it 18 years this month some praise  :icon_biggrin:

Like you have said many times before Chris it depends what side of the bed they get out of, like yours mine seems to have two tick over speeds, some days sluggish at around 900 other days around 1200 but either way it runs fine, ive done nearly 5000 miles sinse I borrowed your fuel lines and balanced the throttle bodies touch wood other than a water pump seal its been trouble free.

Update >>> It's a few months on now & after fitting a new fuel filter etc it turned out to be the throttle position sensor all well now !

Good stuff, glad you got it sorted.......ready for summer !!  :icon_wink:

For those folk who want to be a little more techy all the dongle does is stops the ECU chasing its tail the 02 plug convinces it that the fuelling is perfect.

Where things get a tad more complex the lamba is essentially an emissions device thought up by those folks who only mean harm to internal combustion engine  :icon_biggrin: but one could also argue gives the ECU the ability to deal with greater variations with altitude .

<< So who knows >>

I for one would like to know how you (dis)liked it this time. Have a dongle on my desk as well but still reluctant to try it. Does it smooth the running or does it make the engine duller?

HockleyBoy is your clutch man  :icon_biggrin: he’ll know.

Have done it a few times and got away with leaving the oil.  If the bike is on the side stand the level should be low enough. Best to have a bowl and some paper down though to be on the safe side as there may be a little there when you break the seal.
