PostSubject: Beetle Roller map report   Sun Feb 28, 2016 3:31 am

Tonight was a great night, for several reasons! Firstly, it's the first night this year the sun was still in the sky when I left work, and the first night it was warm enough (about 50 deg F) after work to really go for a ride. Which brings me to this post, my GRiSO, is finally perfect. Very Happy

Mark has been great and patient with me all along as we tried five or six different mappings for my bike, and two different exhaust systems etc and while each version was an improvement from stock, I was never really happy with how the bike ran around town. At small throttle openings and lower speeds it was just always unhappy. The throttle was snatchy and difficult to modulate, it popped and crackled and was generally frustrating to ride inside of town. I was ready to give up on trying to improve the mapping and just accept that perhaps this was the character of the bike and it wasn't meant to be a commuter/city bike anyway, but now, with a fresh service and Mark's new roller map for the Mistral no-dbk high pipe it's FINALLY exactly what I've been looking for in terms of fueling.

Whereas before I had to concentrate so hard to try and ride around its 'unhappiness' at slower speeds, now I can't make the thing misbehave if I try. Lugging it two gears higher than I normally would, or leaving it a gear low and letting the RPM's climb, it just works. It pulls from 2000 RPM without complaint if anything the midrange feels stronger than before. This is how a GRiSO should run.

Anyway,

Just wanted to share with you all that Beetle's new Roller maps are a must for those of you with newer, factory roller engine GRiSO's, or with recently rollerized older bikes! It's awesome.

I just showed Kathi your post, and she immediately picked upon on why I had asked her to read it.  

No, she has little clue about Mark's mapping genius, tho she's heard me muttering about it. Very Happy

But she did see your comment about "the sun was still in the sky when I left work" as a (somewhat poignant) reminder about one of the great changes wrought by retirement on one's life.  We are both still busy, but it's from congenital disorganization, not our bosses' clocks.  Rolling Eyes

Anyway, I am eager to get my GRiSO back so I can see (and hear and feel) the difference from the flat world to that of Columbus.  Wink

Then I, too, will hook up Guzzidiag and try beetle's patience ... erm ... I mean install the new map.  scratch  study  

So, congrats, KE, on longer, warmer days ... and on having a GRiSO as Mandello should have made it.

Bill

Bill, I hope you have the same success with Mark's map as I have!

Now if I could just sort the suspension on my bike, and put a brighter headlight on it....

Always something to improve! Haha
