You wasted your money. The gold anodized ones will not work on the RC-51 you're waiting on. It will only take the metric titanium ones. ;)

BTW, I upgraded to the synthetic blinker fluid. What a difference. They run about 5 degrees cooler. :cool:

john,

do you need to re-map for that ti muffle bearing?

i think everyone has a case of the 'fridays'.

Wheeeee! It's Friday-Madness-Time! Break out the four-footer! (Bong, that is.) JK

Seriously though, remapping the EFI to compensate for the muffler bearings' dielectric fluid volumetric efficiency, is not the same thing as re-winding the alternator to compensate for the resistance entered into the elecrical system because of the low cascading frequency caused by the synthetic turn signal fluid. Get it right, ok? My head hurts....gotta go!

No remapping necessary. A guy who knows a guy on www.iamthefastest.com said he installed them without mapping and gained 0.4 horsepower.

BTW, Cosmos... nobody said anything about rewinding the alternator. Geez, we all know that stuff. Some people think they know everything about go-fast blinker fluid technology. :rolleyes: :p :D

Your blinkers are submersed in liquid? Thats cool, mine are just the ones with the bulb and yellow plastic. Are they expensive?

I replaced my footpegs with high compression
units when I changed over to semi-synthetic
turn signal fluid. I then took the R1 to
my local shop for a dyno run. I gained
45 HP at the rear wheel. It could work for
you too! :D

Brutha - Just let it go man.

I really should be working...

I still prefer standard fluid for the turn signals. I feel that if I use synthetic it may get down into the muffler bearings and cause damage. I also adjusted the preload on my sidestand and added a sidestand rebound dampener. :D
Oh yeah let's not forget the DID and inturace.com stickers I put on the bike for a 5.25hp gain.

Thank god. This is the best thread I've seen in 6 months. I was wondering why my lap times have been suffering. Now I know - synthetic turn signal fluid. Only question is - What weight should I use? :D

Geoff - That all depends on what amperage
your flux capacitor is rated at. The
rule of thumb is:

X/Y Where as X is the amp rating of your
flux capacitor multplied by voltage rating
of your bulb. Y is the displacement of your
coolant resevior in millileters.

I used 3.14/755 this formula works great.

ROFLMAO!!! :D :D :D

We are some bored SOBs to keep this thread going. Can you imagine what a new member is thinking reading this advice. :D

I have another question. Do 2-strokes need blinker fluid or is the oil in the fuel adequate. :confused:

BTW, IMO sidestand dampers are a waste of money on anything but Ducatis. All you need is a dog-bone to change the stand geometry.

Why hasn't something been developed to eliminate the muffler bearings. The teflon needle bearings have helped but it would still be nice to get by without them. :rolleyes: :D

No, 2 stroker's don't need their own fluid. It runs off the engine fluid, But be careful to mix properly !! If you don't you could burn out a bulb :D
