2016 Triumph Thruxton 1200 Dyno set up: Power Commander PC V

0 Comments Posted March 30th, 2018 in Power Commander, Triumph.

This was brilliant! And what a pretty bike. We spent ages on this new Thruxton – the owner was a real enthusiast and left it with us for as long as we wanted. So we took our time! We started by blanking off the emissions interference and lambda and then mapped the fuelling. Cautiously to […]

Yamaha MT-10 ECU remap to get A, B and Standard modes working as they should!

0 Comments Posted March 28th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Yamaha.

Yamaha’s MT-10 is proving a very popular bike for us to ECU remap, and we’ve had a lot of the SPs and standard versions through our workshop door. They’re emissioned-up to the eyeballs – especially the later ones – and first thing we have to do is go in and switch all the interference off. […]

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

0 Comments Posted March 26th, 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 […]

Ducati 1299 Panigale ECU remap – not for the faint hearted in any sense!

2 Comments Posted March 21st, 2018 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

This Ducati Panigale is owned by Nick, a regular customer of ours who we’ve seen for many years; when he arrived with it our collective draws dropped… “What are you doing on this…?” Was our question. “You’ve had all manner of big sports Suzukis, all the good stuff, and now you’ve gone over to the dark […]

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 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 […]

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 – […]

2012 Kawasaki Z750R: Power Commander PC V fit and setup to suit Stage 2 air filter lid

0 Comments Posted February 14th, 2018 in ECU Remap, Kawasaki.

We couldn’t ECU remap this Z750R – which is always our first choice – so had to fit a PC V to sort the fuelling out. Truthfully, we were a bit disappointed because without access to the ECU we can’t deal with any restrictions as part of the job; with a Power Commander everything is […]

Suzuki GSX-R1000K5-K8 complete BSD Engineering heavy duty gearbox for engines used in cars

0 Comments Posted February 9th, 2018 in BSD Engineering, Heavy duty gearbox, Suzuki.

The reason we started to develop a gearbox specifically for GSX-R engines used in car chassis is that the choices – close ratio or standard – were obviously tailored to motorcycles. And because we got involved, quite early on, tuning GSX-R lumps for car use (track or road fun) it soon became obvious that the […]
