Thanks to Rob's Rubbers I now have a nice tight bit of black rubber all over my rim. Not played with it much as I had a bit of a Hangover Saturday and chores on Sunday. If it's not too rainy I might get some nice miles on it Wednesday going up to see @Sidestand (if it's worth it with the impending deluge coming in) or Thursday and Friday around Leicestershire.

PR5 fitted and ready to go!

After a comedy attempt at replacing Gaz's rear tyre on Saturday I've ordered a proper tyre stand holder thingymebob.

Using the bead breaker as a stand to use the tyre bar was always going to be er, interesting, but it was like Laurel and Hardy change a tyre, with me getting side swiped by the bead breaker lever at one point which may leave me with a small manly scar over my eye.  Gaz sympathetically giggled at this to help stem the blood flow.

Much sweating, pushing and pulling later (with the tyre) we got it done, but not without some scratches to the rim which was really annoying.

So lesson learnt, should have either stuck to sweating with the tyre levers, or got the proper machine to grip the rim for the tyre bar (which I've now done).

Was watching CB's video on using the tyre bar and still couldn't understand how the tyre pops back on the rim so easily, when we did it, it was almost lifting it back off again  :tink  Hopefully the proper jobbie will all work together.

Hopefully the pictures work now - not sure why Google is such a pain at linking pics, it's in a shared folder and I've set it to public so not sure.

Decided to keep the Tracers handguards on, but spotted PowerBronze do some large inserts that make them much more effective, so should actually give decent weather protection now but keep the look of the originals.

I must admit it's not 100% clear if it's the full package or like you say just the tools to then adjust the mapping.

The way I read it, the BIN files are their fueling maps, but now I'm not so certain either.

I might send them an email and see what the score is with it.

correct me if I am wrong but I think that there is for a datalogging setup which will tell you what you need to do to tune your ecu.

The tuning lead is seperate?

I was looking at this:

How much is a standalone dyno session?

I guess it depends what level of tweaks you want to do.

It's the same hardware I believe, once you have the hardware then you just buy the licences for each bike.

They are cute they wont let go flashing as many bikes as you want without taking a cut. It's not that much, I'll check it out.

Just wondering what the hardware is you've got (or looking at) - as I was looking at the Woolich Racing stuff which looks pretty good.

It's closer to 400 though, but comes with the interface, leads and the BIN file for the Tracer - the software is a free download for the lappy, so not a bad option being able to make changes if certain features aren't wanted/needed.

https://www.woolichracing.co.uk/products/yamaha/mt-09-tracer/2016/520/2015-2016-mt-09-tracer-log-box-d-can-package.aspx

The more I looked into it, this is the same hardware/software the guy at S-Tec who charges 300 for the reflash anyway, but then you don't have the option to change things.  He provides a dyno check though, so I guess that's a 'nice to have' just to check the fueling is bang on.

I'm still in two minds  :tink
