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.

One of the big issues that owners have is the snatchy throttle response, which takes quite a bit of work on the throttle maps (and there are three of them) to get the engine to deliver smoothly in traffic. And the B mode (soft power) seems to be the only way that the bike rides nicely in traffic stock.

So we take our time to build Standard and A mode maps that are completely usable in all situations, even though they’ve got a load more go in ‘em…!
