Thanks.
Those are Pyle PLMCS92. That's about the only speaker I found that were small/light enough, could handle the power and didn't break the bank. And strangely enough they sound okay. They don't produce much bass but I didn't expect much from a 3" speaker in that tiny housing.

Jenks Thanks for the info and the photos D-Dub. The photos are good ... once I figured out what all the black bits where .
Much appreciated .

To the plastic shroud? Wouldn't that break?
Thanks!
I saw the "shelves" for sale on this and other forums and thought they would work great for what I was doing but I wasn't thrilled with the flat shelf. I wanted something that blended with the shape of the bike a little better... so I had to build my own. It's not much to look at up close but it gets the job done and total cost was 20 USD.
After looking the bike over for the best way to attach the mount I came to the same conclusion as the guys that build those shelves. (as far as I can tell from their pictures) I attached 2 struts with the screws on the left and right sides of the instrument cluster and ran a brace over top of the dash and down towards the bottom of the windshield to stabilize things. The struts are fastened using the factory screws. The third mount uses a 1/4" bolt with a nylok nut, plus I used a 1/4" fender washer with 2-sided tape on the back side of the plastic to distribute the load/shock better. I've only put about 5,000 miles on this season but so far so good. Oh and I've been down plenty of rough roads with this setup (welcome to Michigan )

I tried taking some photos but not sure if they help much since all the bits and pieces are black.

RaYzerman Agree with your direction... that might be a TPS issue. Under normal circumstances that should not be happening, flash or no flash.

Kiwiaudio If rideability is improved, regardless of the chosen mode, then im into that. My 13 is very hard to ride slow because i cannot control the revs down low. At idle, slowly twisting the grip produces a slow increase to about 1400 rpm then it jumps up to about 2700. On the road, this is felt as a power surge, and the bike has been this way from new. Makes stop and go traffic very difficult. A few years back, i checked the TPS sensor numbers in diagnostics and they reflected a jump in the numbers right off idle. This explained to me what i was feeling on the road right off idle. I have not cleaned the TPS yet (explained somewhere on this forum with success) and intended to do that with my winter maintenance this year.
I think ill try that, and maybe even replace the TPS, to see if it helps, before choosing Ivans flash.

Yep. Still waiting.

RaYzerman Perhaps I wasn't clear enough, the Touring and Sport modes are untouched, and the third mode is in between. All they do is change how hard you have to twist the grip to get the same power delivery, as I'm sure you've noticed already.

Overall I will say I did not think the Gen3 needed much "improving" of driveability, and you certainly can pass on an Ivan flash and not know any better. He has smoothed out some issues, eliminated the fuel cut at zero throttle decel and yes took away cruise top speed limitations, which I personally could care less about.
Do you "need" it is entirely up to you. If he had a Gen2 flash (upcoming perhaps next year), now I'd wholeheartedly endorse that as they needed it.

interesting, since he says it is only the 3rd mode that gets added or changed, the other 2 are untouched.
i have a chance to do a ride in, but might pass now, was on the fence before .

my CC is fine, so no limit removal needed.
