I just wanted to give a heads up for those out there who may be installing one of these FCs in the near future.

I dont know about everyone else, but my FC came with a little white insert in the injector connection for the front injector. For the life of me i couldnt get the damn thing to line up and make contact with the stock wire harness. After sitting there looking at it for what felt like forever and swearing quietly ... i found that the little white insert needed to be reomved in order to make contact with the stock harness.

I dont know why the insert was in my Cobra harness, but it wont work with it installed. Simply grab the little extended tab, and pull it out. Then the 2 harnesses simply snap together and the Cobra FC works.

On a side note ... for those who have installed the Fi2000r .. post your pot settings if you remember them. This may take some of the guessing out of where someone should be on the 3 different pots. I know that my first pot ( green LED ) was set @ 4 and i was still getting popping on roll off.

heres mine ...

4 3 2

i know this is thinking outside the box lol, but did you happen to read the instructions first, might have told you to take those white tabs out lol, i know i know i hate reading instructions also, thats why i have the wife help so she can read while i start putting things together.

those settings seem kind of high compared to what i have seen others say they are running, from what i remember people are usually running like 1 2 2, did you have them configure that for a exhaust or thats just the way it shipped? I got mine at home but i'm not at home so i havent messed with mine yet, <sighs> about 45 more days and i'll be home.

Those settings to seem high. Not sure what your running for intake and exhaust but in most cases you might want to start out with the Fi default settings and work up from from there but you might find settings 121 to 122 might work out better for you. Good luck!

Ya know what, just because im a knucklehead i just looked at the instructions again, for like the 50th time. No mention of the little white insert for the front harness.

step #4 " Note which stock injector connectors belong to the front and rear injectors. Disconnect the stock injector connector from the front cylinder and connect the longer female Fi2000 connector to that injector - connect the corresponding male connector ( this is the one with the tiny white insert ) to stock female connector ( removed from the front cylinder). See Figure 2.

& Figure 2 shows no sign of this little white bastard. LOL I may be the only guy here who recieved his FC like this. That little white tab may be meant for another application, and was accidently installed on mine from Cobra. It does happen every now and again. I just wanted to put this out there just incase a newbie was installing his and ran into the same problem.

Richard is running the highest i have seen. I think he is running a 6 on the first pot. Like i said, im ran as high as a 4 on the first, but i was still getting some popping on roll off. My biggest concern is that i dont want to run too lean and blue up my new pipes. I have since taken the first pot back to a 3 where it was set from the factory, as i smelled what it thought was unburnt fuel backing the bike to its resting place last night.

Actually there is another thread where Richard said his mechanic read the settings incorrectly and he's been running at the base settings of 1-2-0. That's what mine have been set at from day one and bike runs fine.

Thanks Dave. Like i mentioned above, im afraid of blueing my new pipes. And after waiting over a month past the due date and spending considerably more then the Swepts ... i dont want to take that chance. I was never asked by any one what intake or exhaust i would be running. What i was curious to see is what some others are running, and if they are still getting popping or backfire on roll off, as this would mean the bike may possibly be running too lean.

If i understand correctly, leanness = blue exhaust pipes = not cool.:mad:

I think i may run this set up today. But then the question is after the install of the Cobra intake which should provide more air .. the 3rd setting should be adjusted for the better breathing and exhaust.

#5 The right hand or red pot is for the fuel setting required when the engine is maximizing its RPM and power delivery. This pot is similar to the main jet in a carburetor. .... air filters specifically designed for higher then stock airflow can create need for higher fuel setting.

Yes, I'm anxious to see where I'll need to adjust the pots IF it's necessary. I thought Cobra would be nice and provide some base settings to start us off, since you know they've had to test the new breather on the damn bike. However, when I called and asked them, the guy I spoke to said that he didn't have that information and I'd just have to ride the bike and see for myself.

Thanks a lot, you Cobra bastards. We've spent a lot of money on your stuff, you'd think you could help us out a little.

My sentiments exactly. Cobra took their time dragging out the release of the intake to begin with, now they cant tell us what settings were used on THEIR FC so that we can see the same performance? Maybe we need to contact Cobra and speak ask to speak to one of the techs who designed, installed and tuned the intake with the Swepts and the Fi2000.

Steveo is correct. Richard had previously posted high settings when in fact they were viewing the control upside down and misreading them and I believe his actual correct setting were really at 121. Whatever works best for each but I would start at the suggested default settings listed in the instructions but if I remember correctly are 1-2-0 are work from there.

CBSIMONSEZ;

You're making this harder on yourself than necessary. The factory default settings are 1-2-0. With your pipes and intake, a more appropriate setting would be 1-2-1. Then, check your roll-on response at about 60 mph; you may then want to come up to 1-2-2. Either 1-2-1 or 1-2-2 will give you everything you're looking for.

Cheers

Old School vs. New School i guess. I love the chrome, and to have them turn blue would just kill me.

Me personally I don't want my pipes to blue, but if they happen to then I'll either leave it or just wrap them with some black wrap to match my bike. I just found out that my Morton Inferno's have shipped, bad part is I'm still gone and the wife had to go out of town due to a death in the family, so now I bet that fedex ground is going to try and deliver them and they are going to end up getting returned, unless I can authorize my neighbor to pick them up, does anyone know if I can do that?

I guess it depends on where you live, but FedEX always just leaves stuff on my porch.

I almost forgot I posted this lol, man old age is getting to me. Well I guess it's a judgement call on the delivery guy on whether to leave the box or not, but i do believe that Doug Morton requested a signature when delivered also. Anyways, got my tracking number from Doug and they are being delivered tomorrow, so I talked to my neighbor and the plan is that he is off the next couple of days and he'll try to catch the delivery guy and try to sign for it, if he wont let him sign for it then the delivery guy has to leave a missed delivery slip, told the neighbor to get that slip and sign my name and then the next day the delivery guy has to leave the box and then the neighbor will get it from my porch, let's see how well that plan goes lol, nothings ever easy that's for sure lol.

I know Kelly from Fuggin requested that I sign for the Vipers ... and the numb nut at the counter wanted photo ID to prove it was i that was signing for them.

I say numb nut for this reason. I get there early Sat. morning to get the pipes and get them installed. The guy looks at the box and askes "whats in it?" My reply .. " pipes, for my bike." He looks up ... " so, you ride a motorcycle?" After thinking about my return answer " yeah, but only on Tues and Thurs. " He looks at me puzzled, and asks " what if its raining on Tues or Thurs?" "Well then, " i tell him " i ride anyway, cause i only get 2 days a week to ride."

In that case, prepare to die! Simply stated, if you're gonna' run single-wall chromed pipes, they're gonna' blue. There's a reason why all the mfg's run double-walled or heat-shielded pipes on their premium machines (and it ain't to save money!): single-walled chrome pipes will blue if they are run anywhere near stoich (max efficiency); it's just a fact of life; get over it! If you don't want to have or see bluing, only buy pipes that are double-walled, or have heat-shield coverings. Now stop whining!

Cheers
