Way to go Anders, you are a true Hot Rodder. Congratulations on the first ride.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Ah, the fun of a first ride on your bike.  I got the chilly giggles when I saw you head down the road - happy for you and happy to see the bike running well without any fire or oil spewing out of it, too.  Best wishes! cheers

Thank you very much, I didn´t even have an upset stomach before this test so I guess I am starting to get confident about the engine. smiley

I will do some more tests after the vacation to try to figure out why the exhaust temps are a bit high, I could probably run it as it is but every single °C higher than necessary adds wear to the engine components so I´ll try to get the idle temps down to 650°C or so. That should leave me at 750-770°C exhaust temp at full throttle which translates to a bit over 900°C leaving the combustion chamber.

The fun part is that even if the engine sounds like its on the verge of disintegrating it is only at high idle in the video, it is above 2 bar it really starts to scream! evil

Cheers!

Outstanding  cheers

Loved the looks on the Harley riders faces at the end. "What the F**K is that? " You couldn't have staged it any better.  evil

Have you checked your exhaust temp with a different gauge to verify that those temps are correct? I've spent time troubleshooting a non-issue in the past due to bad info from defective sensors, gauges, etc.  sad  Just a thought.

That is a very good question, the probe looks a bit worse for wear after several years of abuse so before I do anything else I will test it against a reference probe. Thanks for pointing this out!
