PostSubject: Almost 2K miles now   Fri Jul 17, 2015 7:41 am

And still loving the luvin shit out of it Very Happy Very Happy

Although I do wanna take a little sanity check on how I think it's performing.   The only thing I've done so far is slip on an after market pipe on it and put on the Dart Marlin flyscreen ( which I really like, BTW)   I have NOT done a thing to the fueling.  I just wanted to see how the O2 sensor handled the new pipe and go from there.  And, I must say, my "seat of the pants" feedback has been really good.  I've made 4 nice, spirited runs up the mountains around here recently and the darned thing runs great.  Pulls strong and evenly thru out and I feel no drops or "holes" in the rev band........ at least that I can tell.   I ain't no expert, so, I don't know, am I missing something here??

The only sort of "empirical" evidence is the fact that I got about 36 mpg on those runs ( which seems correct, eh? ), AND, it thoroughly whipped a strong running Rosso Corsa in a drag race..... and I purposely gave it the hole shot!!   I realize GRiSO SHOULD be able to do that, but, maybe if it was not running as well as I thought, well then, maybe it wouldn't.

Any reason I should fiddle with the map??  I certainly don't wish to go with the expensive "gizmo" option.  I've experienced a couple failures with Power Commanders over the years and don't have confidence in them.  I just have a suspicion that our rough roads and hot, dirty environment around here is hard on 'em.

I'm of the opinion that If you're happy with the way GRiSO runs, leave GRiSO alone. Thumbs Up

I agree with Beetle, spent some time at the beginning buggering about with it, now spent this year riding it and enjoying what it can do. The list of things i now want to change/have to change is a lot smaller than when i started, just enjoy

As a fairly new rider, and brand new to the GRiSO (which I just picked up last Saturday), I don't have any experience or real knowledge on fueling and maps aside from what I have been able to discern from the various exhaust threads here. While I am really happy with the GRiSO and it's stock sound thus far, could anyone shed some light on the pros/cons of adding an aftermarket can without doing anything to the fueling/maps? I'm not really concerned with higher performance per se or a slight dip in MPG's, but more so with any potential problems or issues that could arise from not making said adjustments. Also, suggestions on where I could start to learn about how maps work (ie: Fueling Maps for Dummies) I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

One can always learn from the cognoscenti...

Y'all be cool.

Try trawling through the Guzzidiag thread in the tech section. It will cover 'How To' as well as dispelling many of the major misconceptions about FI generally.

If you want to save some weight and have a throatier sound, get rid of the stock muffler. Also when the time comes, get a new light weight battery. Between the two you will save around 25 lbs!

Or like many of us here, just lose your gut and drop 35 lbs off the bike...

It was 50 lbs for me. I kept the stock muffler...

thanks for the suggestions folks! I am really just more interested in learning about pros/cons etc., than I am about actually changing anything up at the moment but I'll for sure check out the Guzzidiag threads. As for the gut, I suppose I could drop a pound or two, but I think at 40 and hovering between 185-190 at 6'1 is about on spec (at least that's what my doc said last time I saw him. Wink At any rate, did I mention how happy I am with this bike? Love it!

Although I am also reasonably recent to the GRiSO experience myself I'd be the inclined to leave the pipe alone and invest all you can afford into upgrading the woeful OEM suspension, both ends. A half decent rear shock upgrade will mean it will be less inclined to understeer/ run wide on the exit of corners.

I am considering new shock as well. Matris has been recommended. Seems like $1,000. or so to upgrade. Any other brands good for less?
