What's the bi-xenon morimoto? I've not heard of that one.

What I do like about the unleashed flash is that if AF1 Racing is offering the service it must be good. Those guys are straight up and don't sell any BS. They are the most undealer, dealer I've been to.

Re: ECU Tuning Option - No Power Commander Required

I see they still recommend running a piggyback power commander, be interested to know if its worth the extra money for the flash over getting a dyno tune on a stand alone power commander.

Re: ECU Tuning Option - No Power Commander Required

I am interested, must subscribe, need to know more, want to know more. What about long term effects on the engine? It would be nice to find a way to keep the bike from boggin at the line from stand still without changing the sprockets.

Re: ECU Tuning Option - No Power Commander Required

The bi-xenon Morimoto's are the HID retrofit kits from The Retrofit Source. I have been thinking about them for a while. Lol still no answer to the real question though. Is the FZ6 detuned if the lower gears like the FZ1? Thanks again. Lol

Re: ECU Tuning Option - No Power Commander Required

Is this the same thing as the ECU Editor Program that can be used on Suzuki's bikes?

ecueditor.com - ultimate gsxr superbike ecu flash tuning software by petrik

It's free software. You buy the cable connector that goes between the bike and PC for around $30.00

Re: ECU Tuning Option - No Power Commander Required

Here's an update. This is a part of an email exchange between the AF1 guys and me this morning. I'm really looking forward to the outcome. My bike is number 550 btw.

"The guys in CA and Italy are still playing with the tune file for your ECU.....apparently you have a ECU version that is a very early one and needs a different communication process. They're excited to add this ECU version to their database.

Just giving you an update....just spent 20 mnutes on the phone with them....they said it will be MUCH better than the 2010 Euro tune you have....they said those 2010 EU ign maps could be better, and will be noticeably better on this ECU reflash."

Here's all of the things the reflash can update. Much, much more than a Power Commander will every do.

Specifically with the FZ1 many riders have three different piggybacks; fuel, ignition, and fuel cut. But none of those mods address gears 1 to 3 begin goverened, this fixes all of those areas. A PC will fine tune the fuel delivery that much more.

ECU Modifications – (Optional per customer request and application)

* Remove Factory Timing Retard
* Remove Throttle Restrictions
* Increased Idle
* Increased Rev Limit
* Remove Speed Limiters (Gear Dependent)
* Reduce Excessive Engine Braking/Improved Deceleration
* Improved Throttle Control & Reaction
* Remove Injector Shut-Off on Deceleration (Bye bye FCE)
* Eliminate Factory “Error codes” (ex. exhaust valve, steering damper)
* Improved Fuel Maps
* Improved Ignition Maps
* Injector Phasing Adjustment
* Velocity Stack Switching Adjustment (Variable Stacks Only)
* Race Fuel Mapping Accommodations

Update: The ECU is in CA, they did some soldering to attach connectio ports to the ECU itself. They pulled the raw file from the ECU and sent that to the main shop in Italy. They are currently working on the new map set. Don't have an ETA as of yet. This is the very first time they worked on this generation of FZ1 ECU.
