Keeping you monitored O-124 In an ideal world, all motorcycles would be connected to a battery charger maintainer when parked-up overnight or for longer, but in this less than ideal busy world, that is not always possible. Therefore, OptiMate’s family of monitors have the options and versatility that deliver real-world convenience for any length of time a motorcycle is parked-up or stored. Providing at a glance information about the battery’s status, the charge level is indicated on a microprocessor-driven four LED panel, with a fourlevel, three-second battery level flashing cycle. Three LEDs (red, yellow and green) indicate charge for standard wet cell batteries (with filler caps) that hold charge up to 12.5 - 12.6v, with the fourth (green) LED indicating if a sealed AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery is holding a charge of 12.7v (90%) or higher. Once the motorcycle engine fires up, OptiMate battery monitors confirm if the vehicle charging system is delivering the correct charge voltage. When the OptiMate battery monitor detects sufficient charge voltage (above 13.5v) is entering the battery, the LED indication changes to “Arrow Mode” - red, yellow and O-125 O-126 green LEDs light consecutively and rotate in a “good to go” pattern of reassurance! Ride pre-check, especially for long distance trips, is easy - no more wrestling with seats and battery covers (and even a fairing on some motorcycles) in order to know if that is causing the dreaded “no start” as the OptiMate monitor tells you exactly what is going on with the charge status straight away. Charging the battery or drawing power is also easy - OptiMate monitors have a weatherproof sealing cap-equipped quick connect SAE charge port. So clean, so easy! OptiMate monitor model connection options include the O-124 with M6 (1/4") ringlets and 15 amp protective fuse - for permanent connection to the battery; the longer (100cm/40”) O-128 with M8 (5/16") ringlets - ideal for 4-wheeler (side by side) vehicles with larger automotive style battery terminals; the O-125 is the ‘plug and play’ SAE connector version - great for dealers or riders with multiple vehicles fitted with battery charge leads; the O-126 connects to an always live 12v auto-cigar socket, and the O-127 is the model for lithium batteries - with M6 (1/4") ring terminals for permanent fitment to the battery. The fourth LED warns if the vehicle's charge voltage is overcharging above 14.6v and thus killing the lithium battery. Premium 10w30 Dyno break-in oil Californian specialist Maxima Racing Oils has a premium grade 10w30 oil that is said to be “specifically designed for breaking-in engines with flat tappet camshafts, roller elements or where elevated levels of antiwear additives are needed.” The ideal answer for breaking in rebuilt V- twins on a Dyno, the high zinc/phosphorous formula is blended with highly refined, pure petroleum base stocks “to provide optimum ring seal.” The complex 2X zinc structure “protects for an extended temperature range, outperforming conventional break-in oils.” Maxima’s V-twin market specialist Garrett Andrews says that “by combining two different zinc compounds, tuners get a double benefit at opposite ends of the operating temperature range. The oil activates at lower temperatures, but also offers more protection at elevated temperatures.” Garrett goes on to say that “this 10w30 is perfectly balanced and requires no other additives. Dyno tests show more efficiency in the break-in phase when using a purpose build lubricant.” O-127 TECMATE Tienen, BELGIUM Tel: +32 (0)16 805440 www.tecmate.com www.optimate1.com MAXIMA RACING OILS Santee, California, USA Tel: 619 449 5000 E-mail: sales@maximausa.com www.maximausa.com Octane shocks and fork springs New South Wales, Australia based IKON Suspension hasn’t been daunted by the apparently limited remaining market life for upgrade parts for the Victory Octane, developing new shocks and fork springs that considerably improve the handling of Victory’s final throw of the dice. The stock suspension was quickly identified by test riders and customers who took delivery of the first production run of the Octane as an Achilles heel, and IKON developed some new rear 7610 series shocks in stock and slightly longer lengths. Owner Geoff Lowe explained that “compared to the original shocks, which only have pre-load adjustment, our 7610 series shocks offer pre-load adjustment and rebound adjustment, rebuildability and a progressive rate spring that transitions smoothly across its rate range. “The original shocks being close to 10.5” long between centres means the amount of shock absorber travel is inherently limited. The design of the Octane limits what can be done about that, but there is some wriggle room. So, in order to provide a little more shock travel, and therefore more wheel travel, a slightly longer specification has been created at just over 11 inches. “The slightly longer shocks and resulting small lift in the rear end transforms the ride. Our development client who had tried other aftermarket options was amazed, stating he could not believe how much better the bike was with our new shocks fitted. Comfort and control were both improved significantly. “Complementing all this with a set of our progressive rate fork springs brings out the real potential of the Octane,” says Geoff.
