Your products and support led me to purchase all my PCIII, IM, plates, FCE, block offs, filter and full Yosh system way back when. I’d love to send my ECU to you for a Ivanized flash. The bike is definitely worthy of your work, and with the MT name designation coming, looks like it will stay for a while. The sound alone while using the quickshifter is worth the price of admission. I’m going to need an exhaust as well... I have a take-off R1 header waiting.
If you have time Wonger come ride with us this weekend (Sunday). Meeting at TWO of Suches about 9am.

I've ridden the FZ10 and its a blast. Had one for the weekend and put it through its paces. You are right on the fueling, but that bike stock is almost like a flashed FZ1. Its a freight train!

Re-read my form slowly and you'll see that is the amount of insurance coverage that you should purchase. ...

The correct amount of insurance for a north American FZ1 is $500.00

Running rich?

My wife often commented that my '06 'stunk', which I semi-dismissed. Well I just had my first weekend group ride in many years and numerous fellow riders commented on how my bike smelled rich. Is there any negative to being rich? I don't really care about .5 mpg one way or the other, just wondering if being rich is harmful, wasteful or less than optimized.

Also for years my oil level slowly creeps up. Wondering if running rich causes or contributes to this. Bike is at 20,000 miles now but the oil growth is not a new issue, I've just done fairly frequent oil changes so haven't been too concerned with it.

I've got an '06, smaller flies, Arrow header, TB can, modded airbox, BMC air filter, PC3, Ivan's flash and the Ivan -supplied second version of his flash map which has been in there for several years now. I recall Ivan map #2 was said to be somewhat leaner than his first map for his flash. All mods I did myself over the early years of ownership. BTW I think my bike runs great. Should I worry-less/leave as-is or can someone recommend a more optimum/ leaner map?

I'd suspect something else if multiple people have commented that your bike smells rich..

Mine "smells rich" too, but runs awesome and gets 40 mpg. We have gotten used to cars being incredibly pollution controlled. Get behind an old beat up 1970s pickup truck and have a sniff, it will make your eyes burn.

A tuned 1,000cc motor with no cat is gonna smell. Ride more, worry less
