Iv just fitted (well i helped!) the rave unit and powervalve system but its made absolutley no difference.

Iv tried putting the spade shapped metal part in both ways up but again nothing.

Im confused as there isnt much you can do wrong lol

Any ideas folks?

You checked the solonoid actually works? Do the click test, or rev it while holding the cable.

I bought it off Josh from this site so i pressume so, how do i go about this test?

sorry i remember the click test now, i didnt try it but i dont hear any click im pretty sure.

The solonoid clicks when it operates, and the PV has a cleaning cycle at low revs. If you blip it gently, you may be able to hear that click, confirming that the PV works. Actually holding the PV cable is a better confirmation though, so I'd do that if I were you. You sure you've hooked up the RAVE unit etc correctly?

Is the unit brand new?

again it was from josh, am i right in saying the rave unit fits onto the loom under the pillion and the spare white thing slots into the other spare white thing (sorry for the lack of technical language)

Im pretty sure i have as there isnt anywhere else for the parts to go, all i could think we did wrong was have the spade bit in the wrong way round

Does it matter which way up the unit under the seat is? im thinking iv possible put that on upside down/wrong way round or sumert lol ??

The plugs will only fit one way, dont think you can mount the box upsidedown.

If you remove the right side pannel you'll be able to watch the solinoid pull the cable.

Also Is it true that for the derestriction to work on the 05 model you need to replace the exhaust?

Bloody hope not lol!

There's a sticker on the subframe under the riders seat that tells you what country its from.

well if u did have the tools or no sumeone who has them. you could cut the exhaust open and take the cone out and weld it back together which is the only way your gona get around it without buying a new exhaust. But if you have got to get a new exhaust tyga performance do one which is about 140quid and is pritty gd and does sound nice. :) cheers olls

is this tyga exhaust the best one to get for the RS?

What others are recommended?

nar its not the best one but the cheapest. but its as good as a arrow put it that way and the build quality is good. but if you hav got about 200 odd quid to spend get the jim lomas exhaust anyday really. they also make a twin to fit the rs125 which has 2cans at the end on the exhaust does look tirk and sound trik too. olls

the onlyt thing that mentions anything about were it is from is saying made in Italy when i take the seat off but it isnt a sticker its part of the moulding

Is that it?

WHat difference does it make to the derestriction process?
