hey guys, these are my spark plugs. looks like im running too lean, but would just like some opinions, thoughts?
But their butt dyno said it was better!Some good information.
This why people in the forum with codes on their bikes ask questions after some previous owner removed all the necessary stuff.
Everyone should leave their exhaust servo alone. It gives you more engine output torque at the low end. Exhaust servo is not significantly screwing your top end over.
thanks for the info, makes sense about not checking plugs like that any more anymore. i do also have the pod300 for data logging as well but have not had the chance to actually use it for that purpose, i intend on making the fine adjustments there accordingly.BTW - auto-tune is only for initial mapping. Only turn it ON initially when bike's fully warmed up. Then run through all load-rows and RPM-ranges for it to do its work. Then turn auto-tune OFF. Next stage is to datalog wideband-O2 through all those ranges and manually fine-tune maps by hand based upon datalogged data.
the electrodes are ok, they look the same as the new ones that are now in the bike, its just how they are.A couple of those plugs look too lean to me. Look at how the electrode(s) has been rounded off and appears to be missing material. They're no longer a nice squared off tip like the others.
Sweet piece of kit. I wish it would connect to my PC3. I looked at a few kits for data logging just the AFR and they were $2-300. I couldn't justify the money because I have no complaints about how this bike is running.lol yea i only had the POD300 for a short time, had it for 2 track weekends (first time on the track) and i was overwhelmed with so many things that i didnt even think to log anything. it is definitely on the top of my list for next season lol.
You can pick up wideband-O2 unit with on-board memory for datalogging for ~$200. TechEdge AU - 2Y2 DIY kitSweet piece of kit. I wish it would connect to my PC3.

nice that looks like o good kit too, if i ver get a differnt bike or something i will have to check it out for sureYou can pick up wideband-O2 unit with on-board memory for datalogging for ~$200. TechEdge AU - 2Y2 DIY kit
It's actually only fully-digital unit on market, rather than sending 0-5v analogue output to gauge or datalogger like others. Innovate is worse offender with unregulated reference-voltage for that 0-5v output, they just use battery voltage. So their AFR display will change when you turn headlights on!! Many Porsche engines have been destroyed by using Innovate LM1 wideband! So only go with fully-digital wideband.
I built TechEdge AU's original AO1 kit over 20-yrs ago and still using it today. All-in-1 unit's so handy and compact. Just push button to start datalogging O2, RPM, TPS, MAP and speed and go out on track. Then download data to laptop for analysis when you finish track session.
Don't worry about so much soldering, newer 2Y2 kit is mostly pre-assembled SMD PCB, just put it together like Legos. Only couple of resistors need soldering. Yeah, I just got one of these newer 2Y2 for my track bike. It uses USB instead of A01's serial 9-pin interface, gonna convert to Bluetooth. Can even add EGT in future.
