    What is it with people -Just try it see , if it works it works, if doesn't it's cost you nothing

    I've never worked out why people can't think for themselves over something so so simple. .

    I thought the point of the forum was to share knowledge for the benefit of all?

    If somebody has a good solution I would sooner try that first and see if it also suits me.

    It is shared, and posted up, with lots of peoples experiences, but people still post asking the same silly question , and as i keep on posting, "just fecking try it for gods sake, it won't do any harm and costs nothing, it may improve your bike it may not" .

    How simple does it have to be.

    For info....My 1150GS originated from Sydney Aus and has no plug. I have used the 'steptoe' mod since having unbearable backfiring after fitting a Carbon Can end and 'y' piece. It got a lot better. Still pops a bit but next on the list is a K&N and some fancy dan plugs.

    K&N and new plugs made slight diference, still pops occasionally. I've used the wiring link as per the photo near the begining, but the open relay plug is numbered from 1 to 9 ie 123 at front, 456 along middle and 789 at the rear. There are only 4 pins wired, off the top of my head, the wired ones are 2,5,6 and 8. So as per photo, my link is in 5 & 6.
    Wonder what the other combinations do??

    Been looking at this thread a few times...I have an standard 1150 with cat and stubby...no silencer...looks like previous owner has tried this mod out (presumably) as there is a 2inch wire with spade connectors on which is just taped to the top of the fuse box...does anyone know if there is a specific setting for a bike with cat but no silencer?

    I've tried running it in positions 5 & 6 with no discernable change in performance...I know it works on some bikes but not all so any advice is welcome.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    I just bought a used 2002 GSA. It's fitted with a custom air intake, K&N, Y-piece and Remus. Had problems with low mpg and some backfire untill I tried Steptoes mod. There was a yellow CCP before. Bike now gets better mpg and runs smoother. Thanks!

    Cat Code Plug

    Did this tonight. Just noticed it

    Running a '02 1150gs, y piece and remus titanium revolution.
    Removed the plug already there, connecting 2 and 6 I think.
    Bit of wire, Two spades............2mins, done.
    A lot less farting and spitting on the over-run, and no surging on a constant throttle (partic noticeable at low speed eg in town). Dare say the mpg will increase also.


    So thanks Steptoe, another great tip.

    And mpg has gone from 39.3 to 46.4............ a bit more like it should be.
