Re: Brown wire milage ~ again.....
Believe me, the difference in performance in the middle Georgia heat, was well worth the loss, if any, in mileage. Initially after I cut the brown wire I did detect the odor of gas when idling, since the new map apparently enriched the fuel flow. After a couple of hundred miles riding the smell was all but gone. The computer has apparently compensated for the new settings and life is wonderful. No hesitation and still getting 250 plus miles to a tank. I did start using premium fuel but hey, I was already used to that since I had to use it in my K1100LT from day one.
Cut the brown wire and enjoy the BEAST!

It is amazing what a little "throttle therapy" will do for you.
