ok - first an apology if I've posted in the wrong place. I've spent 3 or 4 hours reading here about ibeat (and even needing to buy your own copy), power up kit and the headaches tuning the bike after it is installed, spending a day on a dyno, open and closed loop (?), battery squashing, lambda and o2 sensor removal pros and cons, melting the airbox, bikes running lean and rich, dealers not getting support from the manufacturer, and customers not getting support from the dealer. Alot of this stuff is over my head. Even that some bikes are discovered to be restricted and produce little horsepower. I was about to buy a sm450R today at $7800 OTD, but now I'm scared shi^%&(less. We only have one husky dealer on hawaii and less than 50 bikes sold over the years. I suspect they are not on top of things. The bike looks beyond awesome: the brakes!, fit and finish, controls, everything: but is it going to be reliable and run, or will I be going to the dealer (hour drive) all the time? If I leave it alone (no power up) will I be OK? I just want to ride, keep it clean, and maintained. I don't want downtime, and have to do the things I read in the forums about the need to calibrate the EFI (Ibeat?) Please help, and thanks in advance! Last question - the what is the gold on the bolts and will it come off when you wrench on it?
