Right. I ride because I like riding. If my bike wants to go for a ride without me, let it get a job and pay for it's own gas.  :great:

C-14 Emporium / Sargent seat
« Last post by CW on Today at 10:46:46 am »
I traded my 2010 Connie, so I'm selling my Sargent seat. Very little use, as I replaced it with a Smuggler soon after I bought it. Asking $300 shipped to lower 48.

I traded my 2010 Connie, so I'm selling my winter shield. It's a Cee Bailey, in good condition, with normal wear after use over 5 winters. It measures approx. 27" tall. Asking $100 shipped to lower 48.

I traded my 2010 Connie, and am selling my Corbin Smuggler and driver seat. Has one small scratch where I got careless, but otherwise fine. Neptune blue in color. New from Corbin is over $1,300. Asking $900 shipped to lower 48.

Well said Steve. 

I’ve put roughly 20,000 miles on my 2010 C14 over nearly two full years on two different Flashes from Shoodaben.  I’ve learned over that time and spending a fair amount of time learning the differences between Power Commnder style tuning and ECU Tuning.  I’ve lesrned how truly complex the task is and how so many ECU Tuners are what I call Dyno tuners.  It’s quick and cheap to do.  Those tuners primarily tune on the dyno with a WOT( Wide Ooen Throttle).  This isn’t what Steve does.  Seriously, how often do you ride your bike at WOT.  Steve on the other hand is what I call a Precision Tuner.  He is driven to focus on the entire driving experience.  Steve has 3 versions of his ECU Flash, and all three focus on the Concours 14.  That says a lot about where his focus is.  Others however, stamp out a dyno focused ECU Flash for dozens of bikes.  That says a lot to me too. 

I know Steve well enough to know that he’s not done refining his product for the C14.

I agree with everything you say, but just so you know, Ivan's isn't a WOT style tune, either. His is, if it's like it was for the FZ1, and I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be, all about precision throttle and removal of jerkiness while getting the power he can out of it. (Ala., Steve)

For sure we're fortunate to have both of them tuning for the C14. I enjoy my Steve's flash immensely.

I'm surprised you kept your cool all this time. The comments were rude, you are correct. And I thought the unwritten rule here was to keep comments to yourself in the classified section. You can ask whatever the heck you want for something. It's nobody else's business.

I installed the Rostra and it is a bit difficult but certainly doable if you take your time and follow the instructions. There is lots of extra wire that can just be bundled or shortened. I also have a Throttlemeister (came with the bike). I still use it as well as the CC depending on what I'm doing. It's nice to be able to give the wrist a break in moderate traffic where a CC isn't possible.
