No worries. As soon as I get one of my feckless offspring to provide me with an android phone I'll get you to walk me through the logging app.

Did you find out where the 1200 Sport is bleeding from? I reckon it's the breather plate, either that or I picked up the wrong tampons and the rocker cover isn't sealing at the upper back corner.

I haven't looked at it yet. I need to get mine sorted so that I can transfer the wideband gear across.

Cool, no worries. As I said the owner is in no rush. I'm still trying to get hold of Cali 1400 Man. I fear he's on holiday too Very Happy

$800. I didn't order online, I kindly asked Springwood to get it.

Good price. I realised that when I said about a grand that would of included the high rate of VAT/GST in Italy. Even so $800 is still pretty good.

Exhaust may be one of the first changes I make to the bike. It sounds as though a remap is recommended regardless of which system you choose. That said, is it safe to assume that all Guzzi dealers would be competent enough to do a remap after an exhaust change? If not, anyone have recommendations for a shop near PA, NJ or MD?

Thanks

I'd think there's a near 100% chance a dealer wouldn't remap since this isn't official Guzzi stuff - in fact it'd probably void your warranty if they found out (because of policy, not because remapping is bad - in fact it may extend the life of your engine). I'm guessing they wouldn't do it on a liability basis alone.

Best route is just buy the cables off Amazon and ask Mark (Beetle) for a map for you exhaust. The process is quite simple. Since it's Winter here in the Northern Hemisphere there's lots of time for reading! Smile Look at the threads:

First one is Mark's excellent tutorial on uploading maps. I put a video in the last thread ( page 8 ) that shows how simple it is to do. It's not meant as a guide or anything, just showing how it's just a 10 minute process.

Mark's map for the stock can does wonders. I (like many here) disliked the look / weight of the stocker and did get an aftermarket, but if you don't mind the appearance of the space-blaster there's a good chance Mark's map will save you hundreds on bling.

Or if you can wait for Spring, we could do a GRiSO meetup somewhere (roads around Bill Hagan's area are great) and I can reprogram it for you. Stock map is always available to put back if you're unhappy. Or need to bring it to the dealer Smile

No. Assume nothing. Most dealers won't touch mapping. A lot of those who do do it poorly. By far your best option is to get familiar with Guzzidiag and learn to do it yourself.

I am planning to change the exhaust and mid-pipe on my 2013 8V SE. I have a Hydroform on order at this time and will do the reading that you have mentioned. I will be more that happy to make a donation for the time and effort that Mark and Pete will be putting in to develope the mapping. Thumbs Up

Wow - thanks for all of the info. I'll start reading/digesting and may have some follow up questions.

Thanks again!

Mark's the one to thank - I'm just a cheerleader / link assembler. Smile
