Hi All,

I have a 2004 gen 1 with circa 15000 kms on the clock. I'm running a full Leo Vince system and K&N filter but no other mods as far as I can tell. I bought the bike with the system and added filter so brand new.

The bike is running way too rich and on auto choke its lumpy and if rev'd once warmed up can puff black smoke. Its ok once ridden but even then at idle smells rich and if rev'ed hard there is grey smoke and rich smell. Pulls fine and rides nice but I reckon theres more I could get from it and fuel consumption is circa 100/110 miles on tank. I use to commute so it dosn't get ridden hard unfortunately appart from the odd weekend blast.

Any suggestions? I don't reckon the plugs have been changed so going to do that first but are there any obvious falts that make the gen 1 run rich?

Would a power commander and map sort it if there wasn't anything obvious mechanically such as sensors etc

My guess would be the type of fuel your using to start with.
Then general maintenance like oil change, check spark plugs
as you mentioned, and other maintenance procedures
if you haven't done so yet
