Flashing ties it all together
on: December 10, 2020, 02:12:22 PM
    I have had several folks contact me by email advising that they were adding a header and even the long velocity stacks, and wanted my blessing that they didn't need to flash their ECU's. 

   I think they're kind of missing the point... all of the work I did to show how to best tune a versys1000 is tied together BY the flash. .

   Please keep in mind that changing the intake and exhaust flow characteristics also changes the air / fuel needs of the engine.

   Again, flashing in new tuning parameters is optimizing the new intake / exhaust changes.

    I think it should also be mentioned that the stock tune is far from optimum, and even with the stock exhaust, a good tune will yield a smoother, more robust and more predictable engine response. This is even more noticeable when there are hard part changes to the exhaust or intake tracts.

    FYI.

Every time I get on my Shoodaben-tuned bike (with Black Widow headers/Delkevic muffler and 4x tall velocity stacks) I am thrilled with how it runs.  It has a nice fat bottom end, mid range, and screams on top.  The throttle response is spot on.  I couldn't be happier with it.  Thanks, Steve!  You have figured out the winning formula.
