Can anyone tell me what the c1 computer does, or what it looks like please? I suspect Marino has asked for pictures of it already somewhere....

It manages the engine fuel injection, and takes air temp, engine temp, throttle position, oxygen content, speed and maybe other inputs into account. It is behind your back rest and looks like this:

Thanks, but I do not mean the engine management computer, I mean the one that has trip/time functions (or similar) which is placed on the dashboard?

I saw one once, it reminded me of a glorified cycle computer, did'nt see the point :-(

Yeah, Lawrie, that is exactly what I thought of the computer too.  Scott Starr, the guy the showed me his C1 here in the US, had two of those on his C1.  Its only function would be to allow you to have an extra trip odometer.  It's pretty pricey for that, if you ask me.

See the auction, I'm the winning bidder ;)

I hope this one won't be screwed up by my experiments...
Parent - - By airwin Date 09-04-2007 18:51
Isn't that what you bought it for?
Tu ne l'as pas acheté juste pour ça?
They are very cheap in Italy, I got mine for around the same price. Italians must be bad at self working on a C1. In Germany prices are 6 times higher for a BMS unit.

I did, I don't want to screw my own BMS with my future project... ;)
