Any reports on if the rapid bike makes any difference.

How did you like the rapid bike evo? I hate the flat spots this bike has and was wondering if this helps out with that.

This was done a year or so ago. I then took the bike to Hilltops for a remap as it would obviously be running far learner now. Having spoken with them previously I was informed they would not be able to run the bike on the dyno but after reading the positive reviews from other owners I went ahead. It was approximately a 20 minute process for the remap and after letting the bike idle for a while and warm up fully I took it for a test ride. I can definitely say the bike performs way better. The throttle response is flawless there isn't any hesitation or dip in power anywhere in the rev range. Torque from very low revs is far stronger and I would say stronger right through the rev range. I'm very pleased with the result. Fuel consumption hasn't been affected in fact it may be a tad better now.

It's this last comment that bothers me. Mine was the same - no difference in fuel consumption. But surely simple logic dictates that any of these 'fixes' for the poor fuelling imposed by anti-pollution laws must by definition use more fuel. It certainly did 10 years ago when I used a powercommander to fix similar problems on a Versys. On my 2016 AT I noticed no fuel consumption changes after a Rapid Bike Easy nor after having a remap by Hilltop, but then I noticed no difference in engine characteristics either. (Mine too was a DCT and therefore couldn;t be dyno'd)

If Millieman likes the result then it works for him, because it's a subjective thing, but I would be a bit cautious of the placebo effect in the absence of a dyno run on the DCT.

Is this 'reflash' a chip swap, or done by connecting the bike to the dealer's computer.??

I'm in USA, and asked my dealer if there were any updates in the firmware to my '17 ATwin manual. Nope, no way to do one he said... Of course, the '17's are NOT throttle by wire..

A bit more power in the mid-range would be a good thing on my bike...
