On The Bench

Own a new R1 or R1M? Got fault codes or want to sort a quick shifter, autoblipper or simply the power delivery? Talk to us about an ECU remap…

0 Comments Posted March 19th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Yamaha.

Now then – new R1s and R1Ms. It seems a lot of owners are mistakenly sending off their ECUs for ‘flashing’, or going to poorly equipped Dyno centres to get their bikes sorted (and they do need some of that!) only to discover that the thing is suddenly riddled with fault codes. These are complex […]

Suzuki GSX-R1000L7 ECU remap after fitment of full Arrow system and BMC filter – 10bhp gain and no loss of bottom or midrange!

0 Comments Posted March 16th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Suzuki.

This is Trevor’s bike – a regular customer – and he brought it in for a full sort out; Arrow system, BMC filter then an ECU remap. Now the L7 (as has been much discussed in the press) simply doesn’t make the peak horsepower numbers that the ZX-10R and S1000RR do. They’re about 8-10bhp shy […]

2009 Ducati 848 ECU remap to match Piper Cross air filter

0 Comments Posted March 14th, 2018 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

Quite a big mileage bike this Ducati – it’d done over 30,000 miles! The owner had fitted a Piper Cross filter and wanted to get the engine running as best as it could. He had a Ducati race ECU map to match his cans but really that’s a one size fits nobody solution; we went through […]

Triumph Thunderbird ECU remap – putting the throttle back in the rider’s hand!

0 Comments Posted March 12th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Triumph.

This T-Bird had been big bored to 1700cc, and the owner wanted the fuelling and speed restrictions sorted out via an ECU remap. The important thing for this particular bike as well was to pay attention to the cross over map from the Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) map to the main throttle position table. This […]

Triumph Scrambler – ram air kit fit plus ECU remap for midrange wallop

0 Comments Posted March 7th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Triumph.

The owner of this 2014 Scrambler had bought a ram air kit and wanted it fitted plus the ECU remapped to suit. Now the gains from the ram air – and on this sought of bike, which is not flat chat everywhere – is in the midrange, just off the bottom when you gas it […]

2018 ECU remapping: what we do, why we do it, price guide and the bikes we can (and can’t) remap at the moment

0 Comments Posted March 5th, 2018 in ECU Remap.

In the old days (actually, not that long ago) we changed the jetting in carbs to suit engine fuelling after modifications. The legislation was less restrictive too but now when computers run our lives (and bikes) life is a little more complicated when it comes to sorting engines. Over the last few years the line-up of ECUs […]


Ducati 1200 Multistrada ECU remap to get rid of snatchy throttle response and make it more off-road friendly

0 Comments Posted March 2nd, 2018 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

This twin-spark Multistrada came in for an ECU remap and its owner wasn’t fussed about having it back immediately – good job really because the bike needed a service and its belts sorting… So we did the service first, no problems there. We also replaced the chain and sprockets because they’d done 12,000 miles (and […]

Moto Guzzi 1200 Griso ECU remap – like bolting on a set of carburettors!

0 Comments Posted February 28th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Moto Guzzi.

We’ve done a few of these Grisos now, done our homework and have got a really good angle on what makes ‘em tick. Like any modern big twin they’re strangled to death with emission controls, and the effect of all the interference is magnified compared to a four cylinder. And it’s slow speed running – […]

Moto Guzzi V7 Classic ECU remap to sort out a wheezy engine starved of fuel

0 Comments Posted February 21st, 2018 in ECU Remap, Moto Guzzi.

The owner of this Guzzi V7 popped in the other day to day he was so pleased with his bike after we’d remapped its ECU he hasn’t stopped riding it! When he first brought it in he wasn’t so happy with… Now you’ve got to know that these engines are an old design, albeit one […]

BSD Engineering Suzuki GSX-R1000K5 cylinder head skim as part of a rebuild/tune

0 Comments Posted February 19th, 2018 in BSD Engineering, Suzuki.

Here at BSD we build an awful lot of GSX-R engines. Mainly the injected ones, though we still work on carb’d versions now and again. With the later injected motors some remain in a bike chassis, but a lot are for racing cars. The rebuilds focus on cylinder head work. Depending on what condition the […]
