    Vibration issue and plumbing....

    It's probably traveling through the water as pump pulses. Even though this isn't a hammer, I would guess that water hammer prevention should work too. I don't KNOW these things, but understanding how general pumps and physics work, this is what immediately jumped to mind. Basically you probably need a pulsation damper, as a water hammer is one big pulse, while the pump is just constantly pulsing. Or possibly just connect the pump outlet to the house with a flex hose which absorbs pulses.
  2. I accidentally ordered this for my XS. The company was awesome; replaced it without even asking for the other one returned. That's customer service. I'll mail it to anyone who can use it. It's the red one. Feels great in the hand, super slim. The surface is not rubbery/sticky, but also not slippery. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0759JF57W/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Airstream Base Camp Trailer

    I agree. We put foam beds in all our boats and the motorhome. Small trailers are really a hot item right now. It's becoming a great time to buy something to pull with the Jeep. The prices are dropping, features and quality are going up.

    Is it OK to run Aviation Gas in my 2003 XX??

    High humidity actually decreases drag more so than temperature change. But both are tiny changes you'd probably never notice in the real world.

    So basically the 10% ethanol is free? Sign me up.

    Backwards from here. Are you idling a lot to heat it up? In summer I idle a lot to run the AC. Also, I typed one sentence incorrectly, fixed now: Should be LOWEST. I get more MPG in winter, with ethanol, and less in summer, without it. But since my habits change and the weather is different, we can't draw ANY conclusions from that. But by some peoples' logic, ethanol increases mileage.

    Does your MPG also vary by season? My area changes formulation seasonally, but so do driving habits and weather effects. I always get less MPG when the ethanol is lowest. And I also idle much more, it's fucking hot, etc etc.

    Power Commander vs TFI Controller, winner is...?

    But that's what I'm asking. In THEORY they CAN flow more. In this motorcycle, in the real world, does it, and is there a gain from it? In the Jeep it's proven to do nothing at all. And dicking around with soap and oil is not worth the time for $15.

    Is it actually good for that?

    I have no idea on the settings, that was a long time ago. The K&N is a good trash can filler, or you can get some sucker to buy it and fuck up his bike, not yours.

    IIRC, we did three before and three after. Then a big long run trying different throttle positions to tune the TFI at different ranges.

    It's not useful to compare HP from different dynos in different locations. Too many variables. My testing was just outside of Vegas in summer. So 2k feet altitude and 100+ degrees. Terrible situation for creating power. A run at 65 degrees and sea level would be an easy gain.

    Best case scenario for a golf outing, really. Then you can just drink without pretending to enjoy the stupid game.

    I'm not aware of any back to back testing, so nobody actually knows. I'd buy the TFI if I had a XX again.
