reflash done. Very noticeable performance jump! Tour mode and Sport mode finally have a reason to exist.
I've never used the Tour mode and now can see a reason to. It was a short test around the neighborhood
and I never got above 4th gear. I can tell you I was grinning a lot. I need to do an extended test. It almost felt
like it gave up a little under 3K above 3k better be paying attention. I've removed the clutch mod. No stall or hiccup.

So what exactly are you saying about T mode. Personally I miss it but that is mainly due to riding 2 up all the time. It smoothes it all out and stops helmet bashing in town. Oh and it helps riding behind American automatic cars that pull away from lights like a snail on vacation.
(In Europe we would be at the front of the lights having driven past everyone !!)

This is gonna give Pluric the hump. I sent ECUnleashed an email and got a reply a few hours later

I told them of my circumstances, (no fixed abode and constantly needing the bike,) and they told me to take it to a dealer for the upgrade.
I like special treatment.


Anyway, I am going to wait till I have been to Alaska and following the advice above, see if AF-1 will do it for me.

I'm saying there is a bigger difference between them. I never had much use for the T mode
before. Now I can see me using it for the exact reasons you mention. I just went and tried my bike
again playing between the modes, not so subtle anymore. S mode should be H for Hooligan.

Everything gives me the hump. A long time ago it would have been I'd hump anything.

Good news. You won't be sorry. AF-1 is great to work with and I predict you will be happy with the Gen 2 re-flash.

I thought that UCUnleashed was ingnoring pluric because he is pluric.

You're lucky I'm in a very good mood today. The gen 2 update is to blame.
Otherwise I would be forced to send a barrage of PMs to GB regarding the
bullying I've been forced to endure by you.

Have no idea how to get a hold of them to confirm if they will do it on the spot.
They don't return emails and right now I regret sending them my ECU for the update.
At least I can still ride my bike even though it has hiccups

I will be in Colorado next month, good luck getting your ECU

It's okay, I had to ride the short bus to school for a while too.

Now, take all my positive remarks on the original reflash and times it by 10.
Reflash on steriods.

It laid there for a spell. Guy on a metric cruiser stopped and helped.
