Just thought I would let everyone know about a problem that I found so no one makes the same mistake.... I recently hardwired my GPS and xtra light to my 450. There is a wiring harness that sits right on top of the battery with one available hot post. How convenient!! After hooking into it my bike ran very poorly, backfired, and got my headpipe red hot within about 30 seconds of rough idle. Quickly backtracked, took off my connection and the bike now runs great again. Not sure if that electrical post will play with the timing/cdi or?? But it can't be good either way! Rehooked to the battery directly and all is well (thank god!). Hope to see some of you in Glamis this weekend -- leaving tonight for 5 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!
