If 50% of Yamaha owners gave ECU-U $450, we would all be fighting to buy stock in ECU-U.

Seems the Europeans are going with the Diapason reflash out of Italy. Either way a fair amount
of owners have the reflash done.

I bought mine used. The previous owner loved the bike but could not make it fit him exactly like he wanted for what he wanted it to do. So instead of pouring more money into it he decided to sell it and get something else. Win, win for me. I also have not had a problem with the fueling, but I still would like the reflash.

I'm going for the reflash. Slightly more range and it beats spending $10K on a new bike just to get different issues..

Can't think of much else to do really.

I wish I had kept mine. Although like you pointed out, lots of good used deals out there....

The main reason for selling was the porky weight, second was that it just didn't feel all that zippy. Of course it would get moving in a hurry, it just didn't FEEL fast. I couldn't really imagine being comfortable in the dirt. And now of course I have only ridden my new smaller bike offroad once and have been riding everywhere two-up...go figure.

What sort of mpg gains are people seeing with the re-flash?

Where I bought mine in Denver, they still have new 2012s for $10,999. I don't know if that is considered a steal, but thought it a dang good price. No need to buy someone elses used one if new is that price for me anyways. They have sold close to 40 Teneres now according to the owner.

I have seen around 3% less fuel consumption with the ECU flash unfortunately it did not solve my issues why I did the tune in the first place but at least I can save enough fuel so the tune will pay for itself in around 10 years :-)

I guess its like the syndrome we see in proud owners of the more famous brand: when you go in hock to buy a toy you feel obligated to believe its flawless
Agreed.

It's a really good bike, but I've always asserted that the sub-par fueling has cost it many a spot in people's garages. Many (most?) owners are unaware of the flash or even the CJM and I can't imagine buying (or keeping) the bike without one or the other. If I keep mine, I will get it flashed, but I want to see the new (rumored) changes for '14 and to ride more of the competition (KTM 1190 for example) before I'm willing to make that call.

I also just picked up a left over 2012 for a killer price. I had been researching and looking at different options including the GSW, but for a variety of reasons I selected the S10. So far so good.
