    Hi Steptoe,
    Is that with the Lambda or without, or doesn't it
    matter?
    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    Have yet to do an introduction but I was referred here by the ADVrider forum because of '04 idle and surging/acceleration problems. I just came back from a 10 mile test ride after doing the "steptoe mod" and the bike has not felt this good for 9000 miles. Do I need to reset the motronic? I may as well. Am gonna reset, resynch and ride for a few hours tonight..if this works, steptoe you are a bloody genius but I'm gonna tell everyone over here it was my idea.

    Cheers!
    Mike

    I've also removed the end can and kept the CAT. Bike had minimal surging but was snatchy at low speeds with plug. Removed plug and fuel consumption went up, performance was crap and my panniers got covered in carbon. Just did the Steptoe mod, performance same but engine is very smooth and spins nicely. Lost a little top end however where it is leaning out. Get's my vote.

    Is there a chance of damaging the engine when trying the steptoe mod?
    I run a Ypiece and the OE can but I am suffering low mileage. I don't have and never had any CCP. Bike's a 1150 GSA twin spark.

    If I read about burnt valves and holed pistons...

    Tnx for your advice all

    Cheers

    I've just done the steptoe mod ...

    As he was right about my lights and the "Fuse 3" problem it semed like a good idea...

    Can I assume that the bike just resets itself to the new "code" or do you have to press and twiddle things randomly to get it work ?

    CCP pin numbers

    2003 1150adv , pin numbers on the relay board are 5 & 6 for the same positions as Steptoe's photo (stated originally as 5 & 0), possibly numbered differently over the years.

    You cant use this as a datum for your own bike, but as I havnt seen anyone's dyno charts re this CCP mod and changes to the system in general. I thought Id pitch in with some data.

    GS1100R.. Remus revolution (with legal insert silencer), stock filter and light brown CCP, no cat bike as standard (hence the CCP)

    Ran brill, no surge or hunting, slightly over fuelling.

    Installed K&N today.... ran awful, surged, hunted, poped and banged on overun

    Remove CCP, Reset motronic, Then pulled some runs.. perfect.

    F/A rich 14.2 at 2k, is a little lean at 3k, cock on at 5k, leans at top... nothing worse than 11.8:1

    No chip, no pc...

    77.1 bhp


    Just for kicks took a look at stock pipe with stock filter & CCP in...... 76.6bhp.. ran perfect, same profile. just lower af peaks and troughs

    Pipe and k&n on a GS.... runs awful with CCP in

    One things for sure, Remus's are as restrictive as stock...

    cheers Toaster

    There are some dyno stats for the mod on the forum. Try a search.


    The general gist if it was, as far as i can remember - it tested as a bit more mid-range, but losing out at the very top end. And a slightly richer mixture in the midrange as well.

    1150 Cat code plug

    I have just read the thread about linking up connections 5 and 6 on the cat code plug.
    I have only recently bought my 1999 1150GS and it came with a Y piece and a Remus and also a Techlusion black box fitted. It seems to be running OK, however since this is my first GS, then I have nothing to compare it against.
    I was wondering whether I should try the cat code mod, or does the techlusion black box mean that I don't need to do this. I am just afraid that I might do some damage.

    Any thoughts or advice?

    sorry to drag up a old thread....

    my GS is without plug at the moment, not sure where it went, of if it was ever present.

    but for the less intelligent folk could I just clarify.... particularily Steptoe if possible....

    pins 5 and 0 jumpered would be best for y peice and OE exhaust?

    and....

    pine 5 and 6 jumpered would be best for y peice and after market slip on exhaust?
