Highway riding, back road riding, etc. But, it's a power package...not a fuel economy package...we have G650GS' for that

Good for you Zac, well said. People are so hard to please.

What's the burnout technique considering the linked brakes? Are the brakes not used and the front is stopped against an object?

Works best with ABS and ASC (obviously) off, otherwise it'd probably be a little difficult!

Remap the factory computer or use Power Commander?

Are the brakes still linked if ABS off? I know the rear can act independently but was under the impression that use of the front will link the rear.

No power commander, just a remap of the stock ECU

Very Cool! MY HP2E is a beast fully tuned with full Akra, airbox delete w/ k&n's, and a couple of hrs tuning on the dyno with PC V.

Would love the same for my GSA.

The HP2's are great!! Different feel with the new 2010+ motor vs. the older style, but they all work well. Big bore kits are around too for the pre 2010's as well.

What's the legality of registering it for road use?

Can't see any problems unless your State requires emissions testing.

Yep. CT does not inspect or emissions test motorcycles. Don't really see where there would be an issue, lots of guys running big bore kits on street/dual sport bikes all over.

What is the estimated labor cost for the pistons/jugs/map on an '09 GSA?

I was thinking more of the legality of MaxBMW, as a registered dealer, tampering with the factory emissions controls and then registering the bike for street use. I know it is against Federal Law and I suspect it is against CT Law.
