WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FLASH AN ECU AND HOW DOES IT BENEFIT? LET’S BREAK IT DOWN.
Flashing an ECU is to make a hard change within the stock parameters, unlike a piggyback system which merely tricks the ECU into the changes you make. While changing these parameters we can improve performance, reliability, and often times unlock any restrictions set by the ECU. This is due to strict EPA laws in which limit the manufactures to a specific noise level, fuel efficiency, speed limiter, and even limiting horsepower in some countries.
WHICH ECU FLASH IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Using both our Dynojet Motorcycle dyno and data gathered from the race track, we can offer insight on the settings that best fit your riding style. From a completely stock bike for daily street use, to a purpose built race bike that’s only used on weekends. We have recommendations for everything in-between.
WILL IT IMPROVE A COMPLETELY STOCK MOTORCYCLE?
Absolutely. All bikes vary in the end result as some bikes have more restrictions than others. Often times even a stock motorcycle runs very lean and can be improved with proper fuel and ignition changes.
IS ECU FLASHING GOING TO MAKE MY MOTORCYCLE UNRELIABLE?
Not at all! We tune each motorcycle to be as powerful as can be while keeping the bike on a safe yet conservative tune. The only thing you need to do is run premium (91+ Octane) fuel and adhere to your standard service intervals.
I ALREADY HAVE A POWER COMMANDER / BAZZAZ, SHOULD I GET RID OF IT FOR THE FLASH?
This is completely optional. We recommend to keep the ignition tables at 0 when pairing the two which will allow you to utilize our refined ignition timing in the flash. The piggyback system can then be used to make additional changes to fueling, or add accessories like data loggers, quickshifters, map switches and more. We highly recommend comparing AFR before and after a piggyback addition. We have found although a fuel map may be 0 across all tables, the piggyback may still adds/remove fuel in certain areas in unaltered form.
I CHANGED MODIFICATIONS, DO I NEED A NEW TUNE?
Possibly, it often depends how big your change was. If you changed your gearing or if you only changed the slip-on portion of the exhaust you will not need a re-map. However with any engine work you do you would need to send your ECU in for a reflash. Another option is to mail us your data-log and we can send you the file to use if you would like any changes to be applied. (Currently available for PCV, PV3, aRacer, Woolich)
