    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 just got back from a 2000+ mile trip on mine, If I could only have one bike this would be it. Great machine!

    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 :-)

    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. :evil
