VallenJpegger is a free download and a quick and easy way to downsize your photos. You can do one at a time or the whole bunch together. Also is a good viewer with a slide show. It will change the filename to include the file size ( 600 X 800 ) You can even save your time/date stamp when downsizing. It leaves your original intact.my pictures are in the photo gallery on this site but it says their to large
I wanted Electronic Cruise Control on my Bandit 1250. I saw where other people put them on other bikes so I started shopping. I found a Audiovox CCS100 on EBAY seller audiovideo4me for $94.70. I figure for that price it wouldn't be the first $100 I threw away if it didn't work, so I bought it.
The kit came in about 2 days, it had all kinds of parts to hook up on different vehicles. So this is what I did.
UNDERSTAND THIS IS WHAT I DID TO MY MOTORCYCLE THIS POST IS BY NOMEANS ENTENDED TO BE USED AS INSTRUCTIONS TO PUT CRUISE CONTROL ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE! This Cruise Control is designed for automobiles.
So here I go.
I opened the CC kit took out the instructions and read them, Not much to them. then I took the servo assembly and on the back is a cover, took the cover off to expose the wiring harness connection and programming dip switches. To the left of the switches is a little black tab "jumper" I removed it, this configures the unit to manual transmission. Then I set the dip switches according to the instructions for light vehicle with high horse power.
Switch #1-on, #2-off, #3-off, #4-on, #5-off, #6-off, #7-off
Then I plugged the wiring harness in, and put the cover back on. then I took the long vacuum hose from kit and stuck it on the servo vac port.
Then I had to figure out where I was going to mount this beast. So I took the seat & gas tank off the MC and started looking, I thought I would half to mount it in the left side of the front faring when I noticed the shelf under the Battery box. I thought that looks like it might just work, so I took the battery out removed the cover off the air box removed the air filter and loosened the battery box. Then I removed the mounting bracket from the CC servo assembly, and stuffed the servo assembly. down on to the shelf with the cable coming up over the left side of the air filter box and the wiring and vac line on the right. Then I routed the servo throttle cable over the frame on left side around the front and back along the right side of the MC throttle cable.
Easy on the language fellas...it's a family board.Thanks Atxrider. I have been told I should remove the whole injector asembly before I try anything. This would be a **** of a job and I really want to avoid this at all costs. It looks like Pete did it while on the bike. If I use an impact driver I will not be square on the screw ie hitting on a slight angle. Whilst I know it would be better to be properly aligned to the screw, do impact driver work Ok if not square on? Sounds a silly question but **** it will save a lot of time if it works. I guess I could just give it a go and if it doesn't then I know I have to pull the lot off.
No worries, Davo. The filter grabs 'em most of the time. I just noticed two in one post and figured I'd remind everyone that we like to keep it calm on TWTex. We're glad to have you and a lot of your mates post here.Sorry Greg. The word I used is not considered a swear word or inapppropriate word in Australia. I guess this is an issue when we cross over country boundaries.
You took it off the HD right?Haven't been on the sight much for a while so I didn't see these post, but the cruise control worked better on my Bandit than the factory one on the HD Ultra problem is after about 1500 miles it quit working. I was cruising down I85 at about 75 mph and it just quit. I never could figure out what was wrong so I just took it all back off.
HA! Yeah, I wanted to go to Nunavut, but air freight is expensive and it would have been rather wet and Hudson Bay is rather cold. Other than that there is no way in. There is a rumor that by riding up through Ontario to the edge of Hudson Bay and dipping the front tire into the water you have ridden to Nunavut ... I'm still working on that one. Anyway, the '04 Wing cruise control is built with the bike, but it is driven by a separate servo system. The '14 BMW, '17 SDGT and the '18 Wing are all Ride by Wire and essentially servo driven as well. But the cruise control uses the same servos that are operated by the throttle control. Which brings me to my '11 KTM 990 Adventure. We started with plans to ride every country in South, Central and North America. It didn't take long to realize, some sort of cruise control would be necessary.All the way to Tierra del Fuego and you haven't even ridden up to Nunavit? At a guess, you've already got CC on three of your newer touring rigs. What gauge of wire do you use to power the CC servo on your 990? Calls to mind a doctor friend who rode a BSA from England to Thailand when he got out of med school in 1936. He was still riding in the 70's - had a Kawa H2.
If you do make it out here, hit me up. Based on my schedule, I might be interested in following you around. Marfa is quite cool if you can get there when the "lights" are out, but motorcycle mecca for Texas is the Three Sisters (Kerrville) area. Probably the best riding in Texas.Riding all over must be a Texas thing: my doctor friend had roots in Limestone County and grew up in Dallas. I went through Conroe last year to avoid Houston rush hour - on the way back from a Hill Country recon trip [by car]. This year I hope to get back down that way and extend an HC ride out to Marfa.
