I'm still a little confused on the Maloossi Varitor or Variator (which ever it is ) I don't have the 400 yet but soon I hope. Is there something wrong with the way the stock variator works?

Thanks for your help :?:

I test rode a Yamaha Majesty 400 and it did not have the "flat spot" in the in the 20 to 50 mph range.

Bleeder, untill you mentioned it I didn't know I had a "flat spot"(unless the bald spot counts?). Maybe in the next 7000 miles I can find it. But by then no doubt I'll have your Malossi installed. :p

Yes, I agree with you all that the 400 pulls nicely through 20 to 60. I used that term only because it seemed to describe the difference between the Malossi and stock graph on the Taffspeed web page. I should of just said the Malossi increases acceleration between 20 to 60 and left it at that.



Peace.

Does the installation of the Maloosi Variator void the factory warranty? :?:

Don't quote me but I believe it does void the warrantee if your silly enough to leave it installed if you have a warrantee repair :D

I guess I am just "old school" but paper graphs don't mean as much to me as "seat of the pants" .
Let us know what you think when you install, that's worth more then graphs :)

Don't waste your time or money - you guys just ***** around trying to get 70mpg!! :lol:

The malossi is for performance - if you ain't going to use it - why bother?

To be honest you would be better off with a Burger 250 - not sure if you guys can get those?

Bleeder knows the theory well enough - when is he going to get round to sampling the real stuff!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hope all is well with you & your team Bleeder - any holidays planned? :)

If Norm is only getting 50mpg, he's probably got a 650 and doesn't know it! :lol: :lol:

Nope. Burgmans 400 and 650 are the only models available here currently.

Yes I just returned from volunteer time in Mexico building homes, Spain is in Jan. or Feb., and Kauai in July. We'll get a trip in somewhere in between.

Between your nagging and Ted's whining I'm half tempted to just send the Malossi off to Ted's sorry old arse and let him get some enjoyment out of it :D



Peace.

If you're stopped and yank the throttle wide open quickly, the burger will start moving then sort of "bog down". The revs will go high but you don't get much acceleration.

Roll on the throttle smoothly and it goes much better.

Here is a quote from a road test at http://www.motoring.co.za/index.php?fSectionId=765&fArticleId=227789:
While this makes it possible to drift through the gridlock on a whiff of throttle, it bedevils full-bore takeoffs but if you yank the twistgrip open at a standstill the Burgman will leap forward a length or two until the clutch goes fully home and then bog down while Mr Hatchback alongside out-drags you

I can't say that I have any problem out-dragging the hatchbacks, and if I'm not mistaken I own the bike that this guy tested. :)

Bleeder...no, no, please don't send the Malossi to me! I'd feel compelled to install it, then get poor milage like Norman does, and you't NEVER hear the end of that! :x But then again, it might do away with that flat spot that I haven't found yet. :lol:

BTW: I have my carpenter belt all cleaned up and ready to go to Spain, or whereever its warm....in case you need some help.

Or...while you're in sunny Spain, I can come out to California, install your dang ole Malossi, give it a proper test up and down the coast, while I live free in your house. Can I bring my favorite cat and dog? :)

Thanks again for all your help on this matter. I had previously riden the 650 and now have finally ridden a 400. The 400 seamed to have enough pep all the way up to suit me so when I get it (soon I hope)
I don't believe I will be making that modification.
Thanks again, Steve
