from "Latest Development"
- 21 Dec 2003 - Anniversary of the first My16M installation)
Time flies. It was the 23rd
December 2003 when I installed the first My16M onto another rider's bike.
Since that time My16M has been been installed onto 5 different types of
bikes (1100 Sport, Daytona, Centauro, Ducati 851 Strada and Cagiva Grand
Canyon) and shipped to 3 continents. Plans for world domination are well
underway. A surprisingly large fraction have gone to the Nordic region.
All have been very pleased
with the results on their bike. I thought I'd throw in a few choice quotes
from them about their first impressions. It has not been without issues
though. Often the first days are spent just getting the bike to run at
all, especially in the early days when there were still a few developmental
impressions are that the throttle response is far crisper than the
"It's smooth. Really
"There is no sign of
the dreaded 2500-3500 RPM stutter... I lugged it and tried everything
I knew would make the stutter RPM problem poke up"
"I'm grinning from
ear to ear. I've always loved how this bike handled but just put
up with the crappy ecu because it was just barely worth all the
extra trouble. Now I'm just having too much fun."
"The Idle is more than
perfect. It newer stopped. and start and slow driving is fine."
"The bike is now performing
very well, there is no hiccup or hesitation at any point, the bike
is reving up as a charm."
it is brilliant."
"... it was effing
marvelous. Pete Roper was right about the smoothness, that is the
first thing that is immediately noticeable."
"The bike is a dream
to ride around town now. No more snatching at low RPM and so smooth,
it feels like a four cylinder jap machine rather than a big lumpy
twin. I can comfortably cruise at 2 - 2500 RPM and still accelerate,
something it was impossible to do before."
