BMW K1300R ECU remap – a stealthy choice and proper fast with it!

2 Comments Posted July 21st, 2017 in BMW, ECU Remap.

The K1300R is one of those stealthy bikes that avoids the limelight – but it’s quick. It may not be cool or trendy but it is a good bike, and we’ve ECU remapped plenty of ‘em. There isn’t a lot of aftermarket kit available for the K13, and we’ve only ever seen Akrapovic cans fitted, […]

BMW R nineT Power Commander PC V Dyno set up to sort disastrous fuelling courtesy of an over-eager Autotuner

2 Comments Posted February 15th, 2017 in BMW, Power Commander.

This was a customer request: he arrived with his saucy Beemer loaded up with bits and had been told that fitting a Power Commander plus Autotuner would equal a self-mapping setup. In other words he’d read what it says on the label and believed every word! Predictably, it didn’t do anything of the sort and […]

BMW 2010 S1000RR de-cat pipe!

0 Comments Posted October 21st, 2016 in BMW.

The owner of this 2010 S1000RR had already bought his Akrapovic silencer and did not want to go to the expense of a full system. Well after a search on the internet, we managed to find a de-cat pipe that was suitable for this model and that would fit with the silencer. We had to […]

BMW S1000XR Power Commander PC5 fit and Dyno setup – whatever you do don’t bother with a full system…

0 Comments Posted September 21st, 2016 in BMW, Power Commander.

If you own one of these and are fitting anything other than an exhaust end-can you are completely wasting your money. Full systems may save a bit of weight, but they won’t do much else. You certainly won’t end up with any more power… And this is the trait of the EURO 4 spec motorcycle. […]

BMW S1000RR ECU remap after fitment of Austin Racing full exhaust system

0 Comments Posted August 19th, 2016 in BMW, ECU Remap.

Now we cringe a little when we see a bike fitted with an Austin Racing exhaust system… In the past we’ve found them to be more about style than substance. They run a large diameter and are very open, which makes for a hollow rumble of an exhaust note. But, to be fair, they do […]

BMW S1000XR – its second visit to get the Power Commander dialled in to the Arrow exhaust

1 Comment Posted July 15th, 2016 in BMW, Power Commander.

A story within a story here; most of these 2016 Euro-4 spec bikes like this BMW tend to carry a huge canister of an exhaust tucked underneath. This allows the manufacturer an awful lot of scope for siting catalytic converters, crucially though without a lot of restrictions. And here’s the point – we fitted a […]

2016 BMW S1000XR Power Commander fit and setup – a good engine made better!

Posted May 16th, 2016 in BMW, Power Commander.

Now this Beemer maybe (slightly) odd-looking but it’s great to ride. As with a lot of these things you take a big, powerful engine, adjust the cam timing to move the power down the range, dial in a little less compression and suddenly you have a lovely, flexible motor. Which is actually very useful on the […]

BMW S1000RR ECU remap to suit Akrapovic exhaust and K&N filter

Posted November 4th, 2015 in BMW, ECU Remap.

To remap the ECU of the BMW S1000RR we have to remove the original map completely and send it to our software suppliers in Germany. We’ve found over the years that every one of these bikes is completely different, and you get a load of problems if you rush in like a bull in a […]

2004 BMW R1200GS Power Commander PC V set up after exhaust pipe fitment – smoother, and nicer!

Posted July 1st, 2015 in BMW, Power Commander.

Generally, we would have preferred to remap the ECU of this GS rather than fit a Power Commander – but the owner didn’t want the ECU interfered with. Fair enough! But strangely enough 2 days after leaving our workshop he was in a massive thunder storm and thought there were problems with his Power Commander; […]

2012 BMW R1200GS Adventure 8,000 mile service plus new tyres

Posted June 15th, 2015 in BMW, Servicing.

The owner of this BMW Adventure – the very last of the air-cooled models – did not buy it from his local BMW dealer but had it delivered, new,  from Sunderland. So he had no real reason to go BMW to get it serviced and brought it to us for the BSD stamp in its […]
