As keeper of the dyno room keys, he's tortured hundreds of motorcycles on that big steel drum to provide the data for those tidy little charts you see every month. Some give up the numbers easily. Others do not. Seconds after we strap it into place, the VFR tips into that latter category. Before the Superflow can do its magic, we need a good rpm signal. That means sliding the inductive sensor over a coil wire or something similar. On a Triumph Bonneville, that's easy, but the VFR's electronic nervous system is infinitely more complex, and defended by layers of seemingly seamless plastic. Plastic for which there are no replacement parts in the country. Imagine breaking into a 594-lb. Japanese puzzle that's also your ride home. Nobody at the other end of my cell phone has a wiring diagram quite yet either. Welcome to the downside of testing the first example of anything built a few time zones away.
