Just because rain poured.
- I right hereby have to apply a technical correction to the belowNever questioning that, of course.But those are different things:
- how much torque does an engine have
- at which RPM outputs it
- there have been and going to be ever arguments whether one should use petrol which is in the manual for the engine, or better. Some say, previous is enough, latter is overdone.
According to the handbook a Honda Hornet CB600F 2004 should use86 octane number (or higher). Long time gone, now the minimum is RON95. In the beginning of March I used RON100: the engine purred as it should, roared when I wanted to. Then in June I had some thoughts that outside money fractions, what could I gain with RON95.
I'll never know if it was due to the bad battery or else, but using RON95 (still from major label petrol stations), the engine started slower and coughed more. I didn't see performance differences, though at any given torque.
Which made me kinda obvious:
- RON100 is absolutely a good idea for a winter putdown
- the motorbike likes RON100 better
- since we're talking about a motorbike fuel tank of 17 liter capacity; why not to give the best then
- a motorbike burns with a flame twice strong than a car; why not to give the best then
- riding motorbike is a seasonal fun; why not to give the best then
- all the above are based on no scientific grounds, only personal experiences
- I've been thinking since, and will consult with a motorbike electrician: but I realized that even if it had been uninsulated, most likely not the USB-cable caused the techni-crash in Seewiesen.
My logic is that the USB cable is connected to an electric bag, which goes through an extra fuse, and the last part of the (+) and (-) cables connect to the battery.
But now: when I checked ALL the fuses: none was blown. Therefore if that bare metal USB-cable hanging naked in the humid weather caused the fuckup, which killed the regulator/rectifier - then following the wires, the extra fuse should have blown. But it didn't.
So my better guess, it was Noah's water which killed the regulator.
