Easy there Huzo, didn't mean to insult your Man Crush.  I'm sure Ewan and Charlie are fine gentlemen.  :boozing:
Yes you did mate...
Itís just that it didnít work.. I donít have a crush on them as blokes, but I do become mildly engorged at the prospect of a fully funded 85 day European trip.
Now Charley has to grind out a living by escorting trips and doing paid publicity spots.. :thumb:

Did I win the prize ?
Definitely counts as a 2
Yes mate you win..
Saying it was definitely something else if it wasnít that, was a stroke of lateral thinking that leaves me astonished.
You have a good grasp of the bleeding obvious.. :bow: :thumb:
General Discussion / Crank comparison
« Last post by lucky phil on Today at 01:50:08 AM »
For those interested in 78 mm crank differences. On the left a Centauro and later Daytona crank. On the right a 78 mm Cali crank. I think the earlier Daytona cranks that used the standard rods also used the Cali version with the balance adjusted but as can be seen the difference between the Cali 78 mm crank and the Centi/Later Daytona cranks is a lot more than just a dynamic balance adjustment. The 78 mm Cali crank is just a heavier version at 8.3 kg compared to 7.5 kg for the Centi and later Daytona Cranks. No wonder the lighter Centi crank and single plate flywheel feels like a Ducati engine. :laugh:

General Discussion / Re: 1400 Voltmeter readings
« Last post by Kiwi_Roy on Today at 01:37:38 AM »
I believe the alternator on the 1400 is the same one the Griso and Norge uses, they are fairly high output compared to the V7, it should have lots of power.
I assume you are reading the Voltage from the dash, it might be worthwhile to try a Voltmeter direct across the battery in case there's some loss in the wiring to the ECU (I think that's what is measuring it)
What I meant was if you turn the motor off the heating load should be disconnected, I don't know how many times I ran the V7 battery flat when I had my heated gear wired direct, I would forget to turn it off so it's now powered down when the engine stops.
My Vest is 70 Watts, the controller turns it on and off like the simerstat on an electric range.
I doubt your drive belt is slipping but it wouldn't hurt to check the tension.
I have been avoiding brewing, but when the temps drop I will be tempted ...

  The heated vests are either on or off , no adjustments . I don't think I understand your remarks about turning off the vests when I stop
 'cuz it's hard to get off with them still plugged in. The thing that bothers me though , is why can't a supposed 550w charging system
not produce 14v at road speed with such a light draw ? The Japanese (mostly Yamaha and HD) with at the time 300w charging systems
had no problem maintaining 14v with similar accessories . I guess my concern is I don't believe this system is working correctly ( warranty)?

Dorcia loves the Blue Ridge.."it's like a slow ballet.."
We've been on it with several bikes over the years. This was the latest.

Love the rocker covers on the Aerolario Chuck.  Quite different from the usual generic run-o-the-mill 750's.

Maybe your peppers are hotter, or bigger, or your blocks of cream cheese are smaller.  Our blocks (USA) are 16 oz, I think.


P.S. I edited my post, from 2 peppers to 4, after re-reading.  Is that correct?  Four peppers / block might be enough.

Joe, I gather Perraz's peppers rate about 10 Zillion Scoville units and will blow the head off an elephant at 40 paces!
