Ivan's performance

Thinking about getting Ivan's flash done. Should I wait until after the 12 month factory warranty expires? I didn't buy an extended warranty. Also, i may move to Tx and certain counties there require emissions testing. Would the flash effect the test results negatively?

Just looked at Ivan's site again and noticed it does state that his reflash may not meet emissions standards. Guess I'll have to wait and see if where I move requires the testing or not.

In my humble opinion, if you want the reflash there is no need to wait until the warranty runs out. Ivans work is stellar and these bikes are extremely reliable. Very doubtful you will need warranty service on your bike and they would have to pull the ECU to know that you have had it reprogrammed.

I had my new (2013) bike three months before sending my ECU off to Ivan. Worth every penny. Best bang for the buck of all my modifications. Mine was one of the older version that required a PC5 and block off plates. Now the maps are in the ECU and I believe the PAIR system is disabled inside the ECU as well so it is simply plug and play.

No one really requires emissions testing on motorcycles, like we have on our cars. Theres no standard between the various bikes, yet. I imagine that will happen, soon enough. You might find a city/county that has a safety inspection, but not emissions. Its a strange thing. I know all of us here in the usa are required to keep our bikes compliant, but so far theres been almost zero effort makinggn sure we really do.


About all they could do, right now, is train people to look for stock exhaust systems as well as compliant aftermarket systems, and none of the states have put out that sort of effort.



With the 2017 bikes, and newer, I believe those do have that OBD II port. Its possible that might be standard between the various manufacturers. Being your new bike is a 2015, theres no worry.

Thanks to all that replied. I checked the regs again and read that diesel engines and motorcycles are exempt from emissions testing in Tx. Will most likely get Ivan's flash done.

I see a video showing how to remove the ecu from the 11-13 Ninja 1000. Nothing on the 15. Is it the same? Do I need to disconnect the battery before removing it?

I do disconnect the battery , just because....however, i've "dis-remembered" to do that a few times with no issues. Still, disconnect it just to be sure.


Other than changing out the piss poor stock tires, I don't believe there is a better mod available for our bikes. If the warranty ever came into question, you could always find a work around, or flash back to stock.


On this bike, I would not wait 12 months to have it done. Odds are you will not need the warranty and Ivan can flash it back to stock if you ever did.

Hi All,

I'm not sure if I asked this before but what is the best way to contact Ivan? I have a 2017 Ninja 1000 and I am being told that Ivan does not have a reflash ready yet for this year. That being said I have a couple questions and would like to contact Ivan.

You can find his contact number on the Ivan's Performance site. I called and he answered the phone.
