    Well, I've still no idea whether I've got one. If they were fitted as standard then I probably have one.

    Why am I typing this bollox? Do I care if I've got one? Should I care if I've got one?


    Cheers

    So.
    (My bike is an '00, imported by SPC - previously registered in Germany)

    My bike might or might not need the link/plug. But if I were to put a link in could I cure the backfire or would it make it run lean, rich or what????

    There's never been a CCP in my 2000 1150GS. I fitted a y-piece and Remus Revolution and duly holed a piston 2000 miles later. Fixed the bike, got it dyno'd and found it was running dangerously lean, mostly in top gear between 60 and 80mph.

    Bike is now back to standard and I'd like to get the y-piece and remus back on but can't justify the expense of a chip or techlusion. Isn't there any BWM technicians on this site that can tell us what a CCP can do and can't do? Why are there different types? and why do some bikes have them and some bikes don't?

    Like the idea of Steptoes fix, I think I could just about afford it but I'd like some answers to the above first.

    are you not worried that a coat will make your bike run hotter & exacerbate the problem

    Never mind Antti, you can now have hours, or months in your case, to look at your bike to see what it has or hasnt got.

    C'mon then Neil, what does your mod do?

    By the way, no cat code plug on my 2000 1150



    I'd still like to know about your surging fix.....
