Considering how his mod improved the stock bike so much, if I get another bike someday the possibility of it being able to be modified by him is definitely part of the criteria.
It didn't change it much for that part. Those engines are just big 600s. You have to wind them up to make power. The tune was worth every penny, as you can see from the fact that I did two bikes. Above 10K those bikes are frightening.What did you think of the ZX10R flashes? A common complaint I've heard is that the newer gens are all top end. Did the flash change that?
Thanks. So which gens of the ZX10r are the ones he won't touch?It didn't change it much for that part. Those engines are just big 600s. You have to wind them up to make power. The tune was worth every penny, as you can see from the fact that I did two bikes. Above 10K those bikes are frightening.
I don't know why anyone would complain about the powerband. If you didn't like it you bought the wrong bike. It's one of my favorite bikes. I wish he would do the next gen and I'd have him do my ZX10RR. He won't touch it since Kawi made it to where he cannot lock the ECU to keep people from stealing the tune.
What generation of ZX10Rs is your favorite?Ivan told me he only does Gen 4. The Gen1-3 were just Power Commander tunes and he doesn't have those anymore. Even his web site shows them with power commander.
Vcyclenut.com does the Gen 5. I've had a couple of his tunes and he sets up the tune in a similar way, getting rid of the bad habits. I'm waiting to hear from him if his tune will work on my 17 ZX10RR since it's a little different.
There is typically a big difference between drag race tuners and those that do for streetability. Most drag race tuners are just after numbers at wide open throttle. That's about all you can do on a dyno. Guys like Ivan and vcyclenut start on the dyno, make lots of runs on the street with a data logger, then fix the issues found. They are fine with leaving a couple horsepower on the table to have a friendly, rideable tune for more than just wide open throttle. I don't know anything about the guys, but some simple questions about their approach will reveal their focus.
I bought this 2017 six months ago before I moved, so I have no seat time on it. I'm finally picking it up, leaving this weekend.What generation of ZX10Rs is your favorite?
I had the 650 prior. It's just underpowered enough to always make you want more. It was very nimble though. I don't think a 3 hp bump would make it something I would have kept. Maybe if it had 80 hp. The parallel twins are kinda yawn.This one is good. It's from Moore Mafia. You can see he uses the woolich stuff, so this flash is pretty much what anyone could give you.
His power gain is fine. 2 or 3 hp, on a 60 total, is actually a decent gain. It's worth watching g the video, but if you fast forward to 8:45, notice how the bike sounds on closed throttle.
If you REALLY turn off the emissions pieces, and REALLY disabled fuel cut, you dont get popping and spitting on closed throttle.
