Continental GT Cafe Racer / Re: NGK spark plug for the GT
« Last post by ace.cafe on Today at 03:36:39 PM »
No.  With NGK sparkplugs, the higher the number, the colder the plug.
The lower the number, the hotter the plug.

Most of us have found the NGK 6 is just about perfect for the sleeved aluminum cylinder that comes on the UCE 500 EFI engines.

The older Iron Barrels which tend to run hotter seem to like the colder #7 plugs better.

Not to nit-pick, but in the interests of clarification, the Iron Barrel 500 actually specifies an 8 heat range plug as standard. The 350 Iron Barrel specifies a 7 heat range.

These oil threads need more silliness .....  8)

I'll give you some silliness.  Remember about 18 months ago when I started my current job?  And on my first day of work my bike pumped out 4 qts of oil to and from work because the return pump got clogged with silicone?  Before I found the problem and fixed it, I pulled the crank breather off and ran the bike trying to troubleshoot, with the crank valley completely filled with oil.  It made a BIG mess.  ;D

Bullet Iron Barrel / Re: High idle rpm

Turning the handlebars has no effect on it. RPM rises sharply only when it is sitting in neutral gear. The moment I engage the gear, rpm comes down to normal

Definitely tuning then.  :)  +1 to what Ace just said.

Any modern semi-senthitic or synthetic oil made for motorcycles will work just fine.

I run a 10/40 in the winter and spring and then a 20/50 in the summer and into fall.

Change your oil and filter at 300, 600, 1000 and I choose to change every 2000 after that .  Two quarts of oil is cheap insurance and I change mine sometimes before the 2000K mark if I feel like it.

I have your new fork seal sitting on top of my tool box. I will look at the starting issue when you bring your GT down.
Now that's service!!! Why can't I have someone like you at our dealership? :)...Jimmy

Continental GT Cafe Racer / Re: RPM after First Service?
« Last post by cafegtgirl on Today at 02:34:46 PM »
I ride my GT fairly hard 90% of the time. Shifts usually happen close to red line. I gave it the first 300 miles of niceness, and then starting riding it in my normal stlye. It see's the upper 80's mph very often. I actually tell everyone I am trying to see how much these motors can take before unravelling. Don't read the previous line Kevin! These little bikes are pretty tuff. I do change oil/filter every 2500/3000 miles. I have always believed there are only two reasons to own a bike: profile on it or ride it. Go and ride these bikes. That is what they were made for!!

It's got the Royal Enfield sport exhaust fitted but everything else is stock.

I haven't got a sat nav, but when I ride with my brother we seem to be reading similar mph from our speedos. I'm aware most speedos err on reading over actual speed though. I think by law they have to be no more than 10% out.

Ace, you are right. Mike_D had also suggested me to set idle when the engine is warm. I'll try that again.
Regarding jets, we started with P6 but it was popping a lot. We tried P4 and popping from the exahust was even more. P8 has no too negligible. I may try P6 again after this idling issues is fixed and see how it responds?
Thanks

It is important to get the air bleed screw setting correct. This can cause popping if it is off. If you try the P6, and get some popping, try making the bleed screw a little richer.
