Please look at the U.S. owners - Where are you thread.

Hi Blake,

Very nice M3W. Like the steering wheel!

This summer we’re trying to plan a M3W caravan to the S&S factory in Viola, WI. How about trailering your M3W to WI this summer and join us? Let’s open this up to all M3W and make this a bigger event. We could meet in Lake Geneva, WI which is a very nice resort community in southern WI frequented esp. by Chicago area residents. We could arrange a place to stay with parking for our M3W in Lake Geneva overnight. Next day travel to the S&S factory for a planned event there. Stay overnight in La Crosse, WI and the next day travel south along the scenic Mississippi River back to Lake Geneva. The perimeter of the lake is a very nice scenic drive about 20 or so miles around as well. Nice place to walk around downtown and places to eat. Great 23 mile walking path open to the public around the shoreline of the lake with large majestic homes if you’re so inclined. Great scenic boat rides on Lake Geneva.

It would be fun. Any interest anyone? We could start a list of interested people in this thread, pick a date this summer, and plan it. Maybe we could make this an annual event.

Seems like a great idea. I wouldn’t mind meeting you up there. Any options up there to Dyno tune our Morgans? I installed the stage 2 and it runs great but could use a bespoke tune I suspect.

If you have an ECU from Morgan it’s locked and only a Morgan dealer can unlock it and change the program. It is my understanding S&S only supplies engines to Morgan but leaves all warranty work or modifications to be done by Morgan and it’s dealers. So unfortunately I don’t think we can count on having any work done on our M3W at the S&S factory.

I'm in (but already have a couple things on the summer calendar)I would meet the group in Viola, and do the LaCrosse stay, and caravan part way down the river, or something like that. It would be great fun to meet up with some more M3W owners.

I bought an unlocked ECU with the stage 2 cams from garage 56. It is hard to find a shop that does protune tuning and even harder to find one that can dyno our morgans and tune.

My Morgan stage 1 pipes glow a little orange/red that is only visible at night at certain rpm ranges so would like it double checked.

OT...I have a Stage 1 on backorder from MMC...which now includes an ECU. Instead, has anyone simply removed the baffles, changed the intake and gone straight to a G56 Stage 2 with ECU, thus bypassing the official Stage 1? I guess I'm wonder what the 'Stage 1' delivers incrementally if the goal is Stage II.

If your pipes are still glowing, could there still be a restriction in your pipes?

Do either of these dates work for the majority of interested people?

June 13-16

June 27-30.

Earlier June weather could be dicey. I can’t do June 22-23 weekend. Or we could do sometime in July.

What does everyone think?

Either weekend works for me, although the last weekend in June may be better than the second. July can also work, although there are some hot days in July:)

I know another M3W owner locally and Inge knows 2 other owners from his area so we might have up to 10 M3W so far involved in our excursion up to the S&S factory. That would be a fun gathering. Let’s plan on the June 27-30 time period.

I’ll start figuring hotels in Lake Geneva and LaCrosse and post them online. We should each make reservations early. Then plan something at S&S for Friday June 28th.

Looking forward to this.

Details to follow.

Everyone who is really serious about going please private message me. I need to get an idea of how many hotel rooms we might need in Lake Geneva the night of Thurs. June 27th and how many rooms we’ll need in LaCrosse Fri. night June 28th. The Minnesota group will meet us at S&S Fri. the 28th but will probably stay over night in LaCrosse and travel down the Mississippi Sat. 29 on our return. Do we want to stay Sat. night the 29th in Lake Geneva again and disband Sun. June 30th. I also need to have an estimate of how many people will be present in Lake Geneva and LaCrosse in case we want to make group restaurant reservations. We’ll figure this out as we go along.

Thanks

Today arranged a tour of the S&S factory for Friday June 28th 3:00 p.m. I was told our tour guide is very knowledgeable about the M3W. They also arranged for Jeff Bailey who was the principle designer of the X Wedge engine to meet with us. He is now Director of Engineering/Product Development at S&S. They are looking forward to hosting us.

So here’s the plan so far:

1. Meet/check in at the Grand Geneva Resort Lake Geneva, WI Thursday June 27th.

2. Group M3W tour Lake Geneva area followed by group dinner together Thursday evening.

3. Leave early morning Friday June 28th as M3W caravan following more scenic back roads including possible lunch stop and refueling along the way to S&S factory in Viola, WI. 173 miles.

4. Tour S&S factory and meet Jeff Bailey Friday June 28th 3:00 p.m. Already arranged.

5. After, ride 35 miles to Radisson Hotel located on the Mississippi River downtown LaCrosse for check in.

6. Possible classic Wisconsin fish fry Friday night as group.

7. Saturday June 29th leave LaCrosse, WI and travel south along the Mississippi River as M3W caravan about 60 something miles to the Prairie du Chien, WI area and disband our own way. Very scenic.

Will finalize hotel details soon and provide phone numbers so we each can make reservations soon. I would like to arrange reserved parking in front of the hotels and get a group discount.

This is going to happen! Should be a lot of fun. What do you think? Already have quite a few interested.

Who’s in?

Please reply here.

Was going to redirect this thread but perhaps the Talk Morgan organizers should decide where they want meets listed for the M3W, until that is decided I will continue here.

Haven’t heard from the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva yet but had a major storm here and could have been a snow day.

Good idea. Let’s start a list of questions we can ask the engine designer Jeff Bailey during the tour in this thread.

Also got an email from S&S yesterday. They wanted to know about how many people will be attending the tour. Could the people going tell me in this thread if they are bringing a passenger? This would be helpful for restaurants as well.

It’s getting closer. Looking forward to a group of M3W together.

A question would be can they make a set of head pipes without the car there? Have they made a pattern for the pipes?

For everybody interested in attending the trip up to the S&S factory, the last day we can make a reservation under the group rate at the Radisson Hotel in La Crosse is May 31st.

The cut off date for making reservations at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva is May 28th. All rooms need to be confirmed with a credit card at this point to hold the room.

Could everybody going to the S&S factory please reconfirm their attendance in this thread.

Thanks

Me too. My days of overnight adventures are gone, but day trips are good and this area is full of them.

Be sure to ask about muffler and piping systems for the 3 Wheeler.

Here is another question for S&S. Is the X-Wedge supplied to Morgan a roller bearing tappet and rocker valve train? Or is that an upgrade?

Roller rockers are an aftermarket upgrade.

I don't see the roller rocker kit in the latest S&S X-wedge catalog, but they were listed in earlier version under part number 900-0213.

Just checked and they are still available on the sscycle.com website.

Might be a good add since anything to make that big thumper operate more smoothly.

Questions for S&S-
can they sell an ECU that can be mapped by the owner and that the owner can retro-fit?
Why does topping up the fuel tank make the engine hard starting?

S&S told me to buy the ECU from G56 since the EPA/Federal Regulation prohibits bypassing their agency with a modded ECU.

The gas tank fill is a good question and might have something to do with the sensors and the ECU.

The ECU from G56 is unlocked and can be modified. I had one installed. My ECU was optimized for Stage 1 ( high flow air filter and high flow exhaust ) and Stage 2 ( new cams that increase intake and outflow ) by G56. You could even do an open road tune with your tuner in the passenger seat with computer connected to the ECU while your driving.

I assume S&S designed the air filter and cover for our engines. Yet they, and others, have aftermarket options. Curious about what they feel is the optimal intake for those of us with stock engine and exhaust setups.

We’ll ask them at the factory tour. Do they recommend installing a high flow air filter without increasing exhaust outflow?

Morgan West a few years ago was running one of their M3W with a high flow air filter with stock exhaust and they’re a very knowledgeable dealer. I would think the engine would run even hotter though without opening up the exhaust.

I thought of another question for the S&S guys.

Does the Stinger inside the air cleaner cover have a separate part number and is it used in the fuel injected engines?

The Stinger could be added to the OEM , or especially the G56 filter cover. I know they probably would not be thrilled with adding their parts to another filter but if there is a separate part number a G56 owner could try it.
