All but 7,8 & 9 Mine set to V8 low to take some sensitivity off, I figure a V8 will require a lot less throttle movement/speed than say a 1.6l car to keep speed constant so I have 7 8 & 9 set off
Blanchy and Thomas, I just joined, purchased my 14 fz1 this spring and am getting ready to put the Rostra cruise control on. I have a few questions:All but 7,8 & 9 Mine set to V8 low to take some sensitivity off, I figure a V8 will require a lot less throttle movement/speed than say a 1.6l car to keep speed constant so I have 7 8 & 9 set off
I put mine in upside down in the exup spot. perfect fit. The slack I set where the cable exits the Rostra unit, slacken the torx screws on the cable "boss" and measure the gap there with a finger on the throttles to check for movement. I connected mine to a crank off the side of the throttle wheel, as I wanted to make it as long as possible to reduce sensitivity. I went with a screw tapped through the crank and lock nut on the back. The screw goes through the eyelet on the end of the cable, not chain bits needed. There are so many wires, I'm not going to try and step anyone through it. Couple of things No LED Tail/stop light unless you want more wiring. To get the lights to work on the control unit, it is a switched earth/ground so you supply power to the control unit and the wire from the "Servo?" will ground when activated. Had me confused.Blanchy and Thomas, I just joined, purchased my 14 fz1 this spring and am getting ready to put the Rostra cruise control on. I have a few questions:
1) Did you guys put your module in the exup location? I find that a bit tight, and with a little work I can put it flush under the passenger seat neatly in the rectangular hole already present. I guess I need to check that the passenger seat will go down with it there though.
2) If you did put it into the exup area, what did you move? brake reservoir?
3) I don't understand where you are setting your slack in the cable. I was going to mount a fz6 throttle bracket flush against the stock one to mount the cruise cable end, and I was even going to eliminate the need for the ball chain connector by making my own t-bar end on the Rostra cable end. Is this a problem?
To summarize what I think I've found:
* VSS pulses at 55000 per mile, so you used a divider in half. I have yet to get this component so I'll be curious how you set the division.
I have not actually ordered my Rostra yet as I have been wanting to be certain I can get this done before I do this...
Do any of you have pictures or written down the wire colors and locations that you found best to tap into?
Thanks for the info!
Insert from the front.Ok, that's fine, I just wanted to know if you had detailed the procedure where I could find it. The bike already had the LED lights so the relay is mandatory... I'll give the servo in the exup cavity another shot, I have a junk rostra to fiddle with.
Yep, I had yet to lift the tank up, it fit in just as you said, but a bolt coming up from the bottom plate might get cut down so I can slide it back another half inch, and there is a sheet bracket just under the clip for the battery tie down strap that could go away...not sure what that was for, I removed the exup servo but the other owner had disconnected it so may there was something else that utilized it once.Insert from the front.
