Yesterday I rode down to 2WheelDynoWorks in Kirkland, WA for a Dyno Tune session on my 2017. I never did a base line Dyno run with the bike stock, so any numbers I show here are based on the Dyno runs that Ivan did on the previous model.
First, let me say the guys and the owner, Nel, at 2WheelDynoWorks are fantastic. Even when the bike threw an error code for a front wheel sensor, they quickly ran it over to the local Kawi dealer to use their tool to clear the error. That added about an hour to my visit, no biggie.
Prior to my visit, I had sent my ECU to them, who in turn sent it to Woolrich to get it hacked. Kawi is making it much more difficult to access and flash their ECU's these days, as are other manufacturers. Woolrich cut in to the ECU, and read the data directly off the chip. They send it back to Nel's, who put a basic map in it, then shipped it back to me to install.
I had already installed an Akro header and block off plates previously. While graphs are nice to look at, I converted all the results in to a table, as I feel its more interesting, and telling.
Bottom line, the torque increase between 4000rpms and 8000rpms (what I consider the real world street riding rev range) is huge. I care less about peak HP and peak Torque. My "seat of the pants dyno" confirmed a huge improvement after riding it back for 2.5 hours. This bike is angry and pissed off now. Love it!
Here are the torque results
