Roads in UK not that great , and the 1990's sport suspension setting was HARD , not the best match.

Good to hear the YB made it OK.

I think I've got the rear seat that came with mine. I'll have a look tonight to see if I can find it.

I decided to skip the option of ever carying a pilion so no need to invest in a seat. However thank you for the offer.
I made a very nice heel cover for the rear brake master from a small piece of T6 Aero aluminum. If you don't know it was home made you would think it was factory;-)
In two weeks I have an appointment with a FCR dyno specialist. see if he can fix the low end fueling. I wil have to sort out my misbehaving temp indicator. it is never steady but above say 9000rpm it starts to pick up the tacho pulses and will go to the red zone. I think a probably wire needs shielding. The speedo is under indicating. When compairing with a garmin it shows about 5% less. I only know about speedo's indicating the other way around. Over reading, making you think your bike is faster than it realy is. Now my bike speedo is making me believe it is slower than it is.
Never a dull moment with a Bimota!
Cheers,
William

Hi guys, I'm back with another question.
The CR flatsides aren't really the bees knees on the street. Heavy fuel consumption, little low down torque and a heavy throttle. But worse, very easy wetting of the plugs. I found Brisk racing plugs installed after the first time it wouldn't fire and changed them out for cheap copper core NGK's. It wets even quicker now.
I'm thinking of fitting stock YZF600 carbs. Maybe not as cool as flatsides and I will miss the chatter of the slides but for city riding probably the smartest solution.
However the stock CV's have a TPS. Will the SRi TPS connector fit and would it work?
Cheers,
William

It has been a while but in the mean time I managed to find out using the parts cataloque that both the SRi and the SR use a TPS. The sensor is obviousely different as the SR uses Keihins and the SRI an italian system.
Does anyone know if I can just hook on the Keihin TPS to the SRi loom? That is without running the risk that I kill the CDI.

Cheers,
William

TPS was run on the ThunderCat carbs but the 4JH Foxeye (in Europe) didn't use a TPS.
Originally the YB9 SRi had injection on a Thundercat engine ... soooo because you have a ThunderCat engine (it should have 4TV on it) why not consider a Loom and CDI from a ThunderCat ???

This is obviously an option when the first plan doen not turn out to be good.
I have to pay 50euros for a set of 36mm Keihin Thundercat carbs with a TPS and might just try it on a rolling road with and without the SRI TPS connected. If the power curve is disappointing or the CDI blows I will have to take the route of installing a Thundercat loom and CDI. Although I doubt it if it is a straight swap. Bimota will for sure have modified the Yamaha loom to fit the smaller bike and have it mate up with CEV switchgear and lights.
Cheers,
William
