ECU reflashed and my ride opinion
Well I didn't expect my reflashed ECU to be in my mail box so soon from 2WheelDynoworks all ready. I mailed it out Monday late afternoon and got it back Saturday afternoon. I also installed the BMC raceing air filter at the same time. First I want to say if you haven't taken the gas tank off or the fake air box inlets ect, your in for a treat. Take your time with it cause you can break things, I didn't,lol. After I got the new BMC in I installed the reflashed ECU and I also installed the battery tender quick disconnect onto my battery. My stock battery just died on me and had to go to wally world for a new one. Even though the battery is probably still under warranty I needed my bike last week for a ride so my loss. When I started the bike and let it idle for a couple of minutes I had wacked open the throttle fast and the engine bogged then reved up. I thought that fuel inj engines don't do that? After the ride I tried the same fast opening of my throttle and it didn't bog ,just reved up? wonder what thats about?
Okay for the test ride today up blood mtn and the roads I usually travel on in my mountains. First thing I noticed is the quickness of the on off throttle responce in all three mods.Its worse! I mean when I let off the gas it feels like the engine shuts down. I thought from what ive been reading that all three mods smooth out from on - off throttle action? IM Not happy with that at all. Its less extream from std,A,B mode like stock, just more abrupt. Now im only running a slipon exhaust and a BMC air filter. Oh , the intake roar is alot louder and meaner than stock and has that nice cross plane intake roar, Im sure this beast is breathing better now. That BMC race filter is about half as thin as the stock filter material.
Now for the rest of the engine responce, If you thought your FZ10 pulled before, It will now pull like it has the advertized 160HP. Im not a wheelie guy, so I little by little wacked the throttle open in first and second and YEP she goes up quicker than before. When I did a few wide open runs I noticed my new red line when the rev limiter kicks in is now 12,500 RPM'S. My FZ10 definitly has more pulling power from about 4K's on up. I do notice some times there is a slight flat spot I never had before in standard mode in a low rpm high gear rollon I never had before. If I'm in A or B mode its very minute. I did a couple of 6th gear B mode rollons from 60-80mph and it definitly is quicker than stock was to me.
Gas mileage seems to be the same. So its not worse, but wouldn't be suprised if its slightly better if I lug it for a gas mileage run. That will be a later test.
I sat in my drive way when I got home and kept the FZ10 running to see how hot the eng temp guage got before the fan kicks in. It was rite on 210 deg when it came on and then the bike never went over 195 DEG. When stock my fan would't come on till something like 221 or so deg's.
Cruise control works just like before .
So im 80% happy with the tune but im going to give 2WheelDynoworks a call Tuesday and see If maybe my on off throttle responce and that slight dead spot in standard mode is being caused by the better breathing BMC raceing air filter? Or do I now need to get it dyno tuned to dial every thing in correctly? Ill get back with a answer.
