Looking for a ECU remap service

Just communicated with Power Commander USA today 8-9-16 and they do not have an ETA for their system. Therefore, I'm considering to re-flash my ECU for a full exhaust system. Thanks.

Hi Alex,

Have you done the re-flash already? Very interested in the gain of the engine figures...
I think this engine needs something to make it a bit less dull...

Cheers

Still waiting, I have remus headers that I have not installed because I'm still looking for a flashing service or a power commander.

Does Honda's PGM-FI not sort itself out after a hundred miles or so anymore?

I've fitted systems to Blackbirds, VFRs, CB1300 etc and never bothered with a power commander or a new map. They were all really wooly at first, especially at low revs but as the miles were put on they sorted themselves out - no flat spots and ended up fuelling perfectly, even at altitude

I wonder what everyone running full Termi or Akra systems on the CRF have done if there's no remap or power commander available yet?

I would go with the Okami full system (I have the Remus Okami carbon end can) if :


Firstly its legal as I don't want the pain of changing the exhaust every MOT


and Secondly if I can get a remap, if its needed?


Interested in what you guys find out.

For the popping and back fires Dakota morgan . IT drove me nuts as well . I plugged off the SAS system and it has improved greatly 90 percent of the popping and backfires are gone . It is however quite the pain in the arse to do this on this bike but possible none the less . this is the only mod I have done to my AT .

Contact Frank (the young one) at FW developments.

He said he will make one up if there is any demand before they go into production

Secondary Air Supply System

The secondary air supply system introduces filtered air into exhaust gases in the exhaust port. The secondary air is drawn into the exhaust port whenever there is negative pressure pulse in the exhaust system. This charged secondary air promotes burning of the unburned exhaust gases and changes a considerable amount of hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide into relatively harmless carbon dioxide and water.

I presume this is what cincinnati dave, means??

google search, I've no idea whether doing this is a good idea or not, luckily mine runs smoothly with no backfires, etc.

Please explain how to do it? Is just closing the air system or else? thanks

also known as the AIS (air injection system). I haven't examined on the AT, but on most bikes a secondary air-hose travels from the air box to the a port on the head next to the exhaust valve side. Most of the time you can simply disconnect the hose and plug the port on the head... more expensive options of blocking off this port involve replacing the port with a "block off plate".

On a side note...plugging this port (or blocking it off with block off plates) is necessary when dyno-tuning with a Power commander. This is because the precise Air-fuel tinkering allowed by the power commander relies on having an accurate measurement air fuel ratio... and the AIS/SAS throws this air-fuel ratio measurement "off" but injecting fresh air into the exhaust stream.
