                   We were lucky enough to have been given a glimpse of this beautiful piece of design and engineering, that we are sure the original Lawrence of Arabia would of approved of!

                                         We first saw this Ducati Hypermotard as a standard bike, back in 2016, booked in for a power run on the dyno. Two years later it has been changed slightly with a MIVV exhaust system, […]

This 2014 BMW R9T was booked in by it’s owner, who had fitted the full Akra system. We now have the capabilities to plug into the ecu on this model, for previous bikes we had to rely on a power commander. Accessing the ecu allows us to do so much more, switching off all the […]

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

0 Comments Posted April 13th, 2018 in News, ECU Remap, Bikes, 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 […]

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

0 Comments Posted April 11th, 2018 in News, ECU Remap, Bikes, 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 […]

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 April 9th, 2018 in News, 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 […]


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 April 6th, 2018 in News, ECU Remap, Bikes, 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 […]

ZZR1400 – ECU remapped when brand new, back for a tweak now it’s done some miles…

0 Comments Posted April 4th, 2018 in News, ECU Remap, Bikes, Kawasaki.

A lovely couple own this ZZR… as we’ve said before engines change with miles. When we ECU remap a brand new bike – as this one was, with 600 miles on the clock – then we have to dial in more fuel because it’s tight, and working harder against itself than it will be once […]

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 April 2nd, 2018 in News, ECU Remap, Bikes, 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 […]
