Why should I flash my stock ECU?
The ECU controls the amount of fuel, ignition timing, RPM limiters, Top speed limiters, Power Mode, Traction Control and other parameters of your motorcycle. The ECU does this by monitoring inputs from throttle position, rpm, gear position, intake air temperature, air temperature and coolant temperature .
The stock ECU in your motorcycle is far from optimized even if your motorcycle is stock. The program in the stock ECU’s have been developed to suite a wide range of riding conditions and riding skill levels also wide range of fuel types and grades. The results of this conservative programing are a compromise in performance and running condition of your motorcycle.
Significant improvements can be
achieved by correcting the stock ECU’s deficiencies and tuning the engine to take full advantage of all of its potential.
Some of the benefits of re-flashing your ECU are:
Allows Traction Control Mode to be adjusted/turned off ‘on the fly’.
Allows the last selected Traction Control Mode to be retained after the bike is shut off, thereby eliminating the need to remember to turn it off before your next pass.
Overrides the ‘Safety Mode’ with the flies installed. (Eliminates small peak power loss experienced from removal of the flies.)
Allows throttle plates to fully open at 3200 RPM in High Power modes with flies installed. (Low Power modes operate normally.)
Reduces “decel pop”. An additional internal mod was engineered to cut down on what small amount of decel pop remained after installing a PAIR cap.
Eliminates Internal Fuel Cut for smoother open/shut throttle operation at higher RPMs.
New modification to allow consistent selection of internal maps located in ECU
