Hi africano,Hi Rory, yeah I thought so, I think the 02 is going to be a winner, me being a electronics engineer understanding the idea behind it.
I was never a fan for air temp manipulation since it won't be as fuel efficient & accurate as adding a tad of extra voltage on top of an existing wave generated by the 02 sensor.
In short, the ECU also controls the injectors & timing to keep the mixture at it's pre set map levels determined by the 02 sensor.
The fuelling is to a large extent reliant on what it gets from the 02 sensor once it goes closed loop.
My Rapid bike Easy is being delivered today, so I shall give feedback on my findings of this unit once installed..
My first post here......
I am in the final stages of testing a solution to this issue (and other running problems)
I have a 2017 tri color that i have installed a modified fuel pressure regulator.
Some back ground, I owned Turbo City (retired 2 years ago) and have designed and built modified FPRs for ST1300, VFR800, Goldwings, CBR1000. (search Turbo City FPR)
I have also done extensive GM automotive computer modifications and programming.
All of these Honda EFI computer systems run lean and that is what causes most all of these issues. By raising the fuel pressure slightly, most issues disappear without creating problems with the computer.
I have identified a readily available replacement FPR regulator that when modified works great in the AT, and its less than $25.00. Easily installed by just removing the fuel tank (no other plastics need remove). No modifications to the original fuel system (easily returned to stock)
Can be used to improve fueling with aftermarket air filters and exhaust.
When testing is complete, I will provide part numbers of the regulator and complete instructions on how to modify (very easy).
So far I am very impressed and encouraged at the results. Not here to sell anything- will provide the info free ( have sold thousands on the FPRs in the past)
Let me know if this is something everyone would be interested in and i will start a new thread......
Also interested in several AT owners in So Cal that would like to test this on there bike.
Stay tuned Thanks Tom
You read my mind. This has happened to me a few times in the now 13 months and 14k miles of ownership. And, it also happened several times on my last bike (2014 v-strom 1000). Some people on the vstrom forum would freak out over it there too. Takes a fraction of a second to hit that starter button. Happens to many modern bikes because of the excessive lean condition. I'd rather just deal with it as is than throw money at it and probably suffer a little gas mileage, too. Personally, I'm more irritated by the false neutrals.WTF? Just restart it and keep moving.
