Well, yesterday I picked my bike up from Wagga and today I flung the Ago pipe on it. Left the Mistral dbk map in and took it out for a flog. It felt a bit flat at first so I started giving it a bit of a work out. Suddenly it got louder. FUCK! The dbk had jumped ship and no, I couldn't find it. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck! Yes I'd checked it was tight, no I do t know what happened. Yes I'll get another one but the chances of getting it before the weekend are non existant.

No use crying over spilt milk. Back to the workshop and install the Mistral No dbk map. Set CO to zero. Hmm? That actually sounds pretty good. Surprising as the pipe is essentially a hollow tube.

OK, off for a flog and 'WOW! Too noisy for me at full vinegar but shit is spools up quick and smooth! As we won't have a dbk by the weekend we can do a couple of logging runs without but it feels pretty damn close to me. I actually got it to break traction on a shiny bit of tar at about 7,000 in third! That's pretty impressive but what is really nice is how smooth it is! It actually feels better with this pipe than with the one it was built for! Very Happy

Unfortunately I can't start logging it yet as the crappy Android phone I bought is so unbelievably shitty it won't connect to the Bluetooth dongle so we'll have to wait until the weekend to find out exactly what shit is going down. The journey has begun though.

I thought that. Be interesting to see. Good news is I called in a few favours at the importer and Daniel is sending me a brand new dbk for the ago pipe gratis so we're back on track and ready to boogie on Saturday cheers

Pete, that's a nice pipe. Wish I had one. Anyway, don't worry about the dbk. Wear some ear plugs. I do and it's great. In fact, I even got compliments from the neighbours. I feel that the standard map is a good start with the lambda switched off and bottom richened up. It's just a feeling so I may be wrong.

Wow.
Can't believe I just spent the last 20 minutes wading through that.
Pretty exhausting.
Whatever happened to just enjoying the ride.

No one's forcing you to buy a V7 Racer, but that doesn't stop you from slagging it off with vigour.
Oh yeah that's right.
Only you get to have an opinion on everything.
Sorry, but f**k you

Hey man, I'm getting tired of your bullshit and your animosity towards some members here.
It's obvious you don't like Roper we get it, big fucking deal!
No reason to shit all over the threads that he's involved in...

You mean like he shat all over my Cafe Racer thread,
Interesting that you ignore that.
No one forced him to read it, but it didn't stop him from slagging of the whole concept.
Why didn't he practice what he preaches, and just ignore it if he didn't like it.
Hmmm. Rolling Eyes
Sorry, but there are definitely some double standards being applied here.
Shocked
I get that the person concerned is some sort of guru who you all bow down before, but that seems to get used as license for that person to throw his weight around like some sort of school bully.
If I have an opinion, and Mr. Roper doesn't like it, then that's just tough.
After all, he's always quick to point out that he's entitled to express his, no matter who it may upset.
Seems this is just a case of being able to dish it out, but not able to take it back.
Very predictable,.

You might have a point there and I'm not ignoring anything, because you already got back at him (and others)...
When is this shit stop then? Never, because you wanna have the last word no matter what?
Meanwhile, we have a cluster fuck every other thread instead of useful input.
Not cool.

Pascal, it is much easier I found to add dis-likable people to your ignore list by clicking the "foe" tab in your own profile, then whenever they post this is all you see.

The trick of the master salesman is to make it appear that they are doing YOU a favour.
Gotta admire them for that I guess,.
Anyway no worries.
I'm off, but I really hope you people wake up and see what's really going on here.

The beautiful thing is KK07, if at anytime I'm feeling jovial enough that BnB's demented ravings won't piss me off, I can open and have a look, like his last two posts in this thread.

What a wanker! Accusing people of using this forum for financial gain when they pot in hundreds of hours and thousands of km to develop a multitude of maps, that they practically give away for free.

God forbid he ever discover GuzziTech, I'm sure Todd will love him.

Exactly what I just said.
They don't actually give these maps away though do they.
Do they aske for payment ?
I rest my case

Well there is a plethora of options for you just within these hallowed pages, pick the one most aesthetically pleasing to your eye, by others experience here, double check its functionality (room for panniers) then how it sounds/feels/rides with a Beetle map.

I'm sure you've already got it sussed. I await your decision and final analysis of the outcome.

Much though I'd like to recommend the Staintune the fact is that it is a 'Generic' can just adapted for Guzzis and in all honesty I think it looks dull and doesn't work very well. It also has a 'Tinny' sound that I can't love. There are many much better alternatives.

As soon as you have the cables nd Guzzidiag up and running let us know. We can flip you a map that will be a LOT better than whatever you're currently running.

I'm actually liking the Ago pipe a lot. Probably the best sounding dBK *Out* pipe I've heard.

Well, actually, all we ask for is a donation to help defray development costs. The maps are sent out without any money changing hands. If people are happy they can choose to send Mark some money. There is no specified amount. But we won't let that get in the way of your relentless trolling Rob, or whatever you're calling yourself this time around. Carry on. It's quite amusing in a rather pathetic 'World of Warcraft in yer underpants' sort of way Laughing

Anyway, I'm off to get into my giuilded litter and get the Nubian slaves to carry me down to the pub where I'll feast on quails eggs and Russian caviar all paid for by my relentless gouging of suckers on the Internet! cheers

Hey Pete, when bullshitnbollocks finished his latest rant, he said "OVER AND OUT".
Does that mean he's leaving this forum and going over to GT, (hope so). I'm sure Todd will kiss his arse and give him a PC V/Auto Tune for free.

You enjoy yourself Pete, we'll hold the fort.
