    I almost forgot; I put Akra cans on:

    One last issue I had was a leak at the gear sensor. I tightened the bolts and, so far, it appears the leak has stopped.

    Once I had everything buttoned up, I connected TuneECU to change maps and turn off the SAS sensor. What I found was not only the circuit error for the SAS, but also an error code for the rear cylinder coil; turns out I had not fully snapped the connector to the coil. After some initial frustration figuring out how to use the program, I got some help from a couple of inmates here and got everything running like a watch. The map I changed to was the Akra map for this year model.

    I rode all day yesterday for the first time since making the repairs and I am very pleased. The bike seems stronger and makes a completely different sound! Without the air box, I can hear all kinds of engine type noises coming from the engine. Awesome!

    The Akra map pulls strongly but is too rich and sucks fuel.

    Try the Powertripp map for 09-11 bikes. Many inmates have used it and reported good mileage as well as smooth and strong power delivery.

    Ok, thanks for the heads up!

    I found the '09-'10 map by Power Tripp; any word on if it's ok to install that on my 2011?

    :lol3 But I have read the TuneECU thread-at least a part of it. It's sooooo loooong, but I'll get on that!
