Would the colder air cause the bike to have a different sound than in warmer weather?
And do i need to adjust my FI2000 for the colder weather? it seems to be running a bit richer than normal..........
I'm not sure about sound, but it should run a bit better because cold air is generally more dense than warm air. that means it's taking more into the cylinder when sucking in. As for the adjustment, none needed.
My bike runs stronger when it's cold out. By running rich, are you refering to a gas smell when you are riding? They put stuff in winter gas, and it makes it smell stronger. I can smell a little gas when it's cold out, but have no exhaust leaks, and no gas leaks.
Riding to work is optional.
Riding back home is mandatory. :biggrin:
I ALMOST rode about 60 miles yesterday to run an errand and drop off a care package to the stepdaughter... decided to cage it.
Started a light sprinkle when I left her place... 5 minutes later it was a complete downpour... could barely see. Had I been on the bike I would have had to have parked under an overpass for at least 2 hours.
