52mm AFR Gauge Mounting...
Guys and gals,
I'm working on adding an AEM 30-0300 AFR gauge to my 2016 Rebel. Once I've got the gauge up and running, I'm going to be able to see the AFR a stock Rebel runs. And if it is not rich at WOT, I'm going to attempt to tune the WOT AFR to 12.5. 12.5 is optimum power for a gasoline engine, as well as very safe. My idea is to leave the rest of the throttle input as it currently is, because it runs well and seems to be very efficient. It's WOT that I want to make sure is optimized.
The point of doing this is to ensure that I can eek out every possible hp this engine can provide, at WOT, to help with passing type power at high speeds. I'm guessing Honda could have done this very easily, but have their hands tied due to emissions regulations. I *think* that changing the lower tip-side shape of the jet needle should be all that is needed. In that way, all positions of the jet needle are the same, except the bottom tip. That *should* only affect WOT. I will post my results of this experiment as I go along. And will make a video showing various AFR conditions a stock Rebel yields. I'm guessing it's fairly lean, as when I'm cruising along (with adequate amounts of fuel), under certain conditions, I think I feel the power sort of "cut-out." Just like it does when the gas level in the ON position is low enough that it's about to run out … but before it does, you can sort of kind of feel it starting to hesitate / lose power a bit.
I've got the AFR gauge, wiring harness, and the Bosch sensor. It is all in an antique car I've tuned to perfection. I went and got the appropriate exhaust weld bung on Wednesday.
I need to remove the exhaust, drill a hole, and weld in the bung. Then apply the sensor and wire it up. I think I've got a plan for everything … except.
I'm going to have to find a place to tap switch power (shouldn't be too difficult).
And, the reason I made this post: I can't seem to find a handlebar gauge mount for said 52mm gauge. Can anyone shoot me a hint as to where I might look?
