Ducati 1200 Multistrada ECU remap plus throttle cable sort out!

0 Comments Posted November 22nd, 2017 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

This bike came to us from the Ducati Owners Club secretary and was a straightforward job to ECU remap. We see a lot of these Multistradas, and his bike did feel terrible… we rode it before we started and noticed the throttle rails were sticky, plus it needed the throttle cables changing – a bargain at […]

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

0 Comments Posted November 17th, 2017 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 – […]

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

0 Comments Posted November 13th, 2017 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 […]

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

0 Comments Posted November 8th, 2017 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. […]

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

0 Comments Posted November 1st, 2017 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 […]

2014 Ducati Multistrada ECU remap for a smoothed out power delivery

0 Comments Posted October 25th, 2017 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

There are several ways of attacking an ECU remap for a Ducati Multistrada; you can go through and change the fuelling and ignition tables and call it a job but we’ve found that the throttle maps are key to getting it right. There are 4 modes, Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro. Urban and Enduro are […]

Suzuki GSX-S1000S ECU remap – stock it’s not good. Add an end-can and it gets worse… **With owner’s thoughts**

0 Comments Posted October 23rd, 2017 in ECU Remap, Suzuki.

The Suzuki GSX-S1000S should be a great bike as it’s powered by an engine we love, but to be honest stock they’re absolutely sh**e, with huge problems… The moment the standard (heavy) under slung exhaust box/can is removed the engine’s hunting and coughing and spluttering gets much worse. Officially, the bike hasn’t a problem. Unofficially Suzuki […]

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

0 Comments Posted October 18th, 2017 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 […]

2017 ZZR1400 ECU remap – noisy, but 200bhp at the back wheel not to be sneezed at!

0 Comments Posted October 16th, 2017 in ECU Remap, Kawasaki.

Blimey, this thing was noisy! It may have made our ears bleed but did end up making 200bhp by the time we’d finished the ECU remap… Obviously, the owner had made major changes to the exhaust system, with Akra’ headers and custom (noisy) end can and the remap was essential because the fuelling was way […]

Suzuki GSX-R1000L7 ECU remap – with a full system 185bhp to just shy of 200bhp and all restrictions dealt with!

0 Comments Posted October 6th, 2017 in ECU Remap, Suzuki.

We’ve run both models of new GSX-R now – the standard and the R – and they share a giant EURO4 exhaust end-can, which is horrendously restrictive. Obviously on looks alone they’re headed for the skip but this is also a good thing because it is holding the engine back. We’ve just ECU remapped a bike […]
