    I don't know if Larry ever answered you or not, so I'll butt in. On all 4-valve bikes, including the K1, the air isn't measured as on the earlier Ks. The old ones used a version of L (luft!) Jetronic which had a flapper to measure air flow. The newer bikes used Motronic, which did away with that. The computer was programed to know how much air the engine would be breathing at any given RPM and throttle setting, and it metered the right amount of fuel for that amount of air.
    Tonycarlos is right Scottie. Metering is managed by the Motronic and instead of an air flow meter, the 1100/1200 brick motors use an air temp sensor. I am managing the fuel injection with a programmable injection computer from Dynojet. The Dynojet FI harness is grafted into the OEM loom. I can adjust A/F ratio and the system is closed loop. It is possible to run open loop and map the entire FI manually but for now the closed loop system is fine. The engine idles well and has immediate throttle response, and pulls like a frieght train. A/F is set @ 13.8:1

    I will have several bikes, including this one at the Redmond rally this year, if all goes according to plan...

    The Dearly Departed

    Stepped on my thing at a track day in France, lost the front end. Was going to be just a scratched up bike until the sucker caught and edge and was launched up in the air. Would have lived had it landed on the gravel trap, instead it landed on the pavement. Did great out of the insurance, thus I bought its twin here.

    I will. Still have the 94 R1100RS sitting in the garage. Just couldn't get used to the twin. Always had 4 cylinders. Working on GPS and radar mount now.

    Here are my two US bikes..... must admit that ole yeller is my true love, don't need anything else. The K1 is nice and cool but once you ride the K1200RS, it fades away....

    Hey JasonJ, that appears to be an aftermarket shield you're running. What is it and how well does it work? It looks real nice on the bike!
