Rapid Bike Easy
Fitted my Rapid Bike Easy today, a little fiddley but not bad at all. I found lowering the bash plate on its hinges and removing the brake pedal helped a lot. It allows you to get your fingers in to release a little plastic clip that holds the current connection in place down by the o2 sensor. You need to release that connection from the bracket to be able to unplug it to insert the Rapid Bike cable black connectors, the bike has to be cold to do this for obvious reasons.
Once cabled in the instructions tell you to run the bike to get the o2 sensor hot which should flash the LED on the unit proving it is working and you close it up. Ten minutes later with the fan running on the radiator I had no flashing LED, just solid, in my case it needed a good ten minute run out on the road to get it to do so.
From start to finish it took me an hour, if I did it again probably 20 mins, no need to remove the tank. I only went for a short run but initial impressions are good, I am not really looking for more power, just trying to get rid of the low speed jerkiness of the engine which it does. I felt the pickup was smooth and strong but unless riding back to back it is difficult to be really subjective, longer rides will help me evaluate. Tools required, 12mm spanner for brake lever bolt (remove the bolt all the way, it keys onto the gear shaft), underseat allen key for bash plate (stock Honda).
