Had to come back up to Bungendore to deal with kids stuff, Grrrrrrr.

OK, New map loaded. Tick!

Fill with fuel. Tick!

Check tyres. Tick!

Spray bike and self with 'Cop-be-gone' to deter wallopers, (This is dubious in its efficacy.). Tick!

Now to see what the new map is like! cheers

Bit hard to give an appraisal of the new map as the road was choc-a-block all the way from Bungendore to Mystery Bay. Hard to say for sure but fuel economy seems to be better, it was. Very slow trip though.

The back road from Bermagui to Tathra might tell a better story but the South Coast it's madness this year. The economic downturn means nobody is holidaying overseas so *Our* coast is packed. Even the feral campground is packed out with campers and toads half way back up Mystery Bay road. Bleargh!

Timing is everything, Pete. That is why "Black Betty" gets a well earned break over Christmas and some treatment for "ailments". Come the 4th January, though, the hurry handle will get the hurry up!

Yup, with double demerits and all that shit it's hard enough to have a good time. Throw in half a million sydneysiders and canberraites who never usually travel more than 10km from home to buy shit at Harvey Norman and then undertake a five hour drive in a car stuffed to the gunwales with crap and it's like playing Russian roulette with five of the chambers loaded.

I mean look at this fucktard!

Well I rode to Bermi for a coffee and am pleased to report that yes, there is a definite improvement on the earlier map.

I think Mark is way beyond the quantum leaps of the earlier iterations over the shitty stock maps but each update has shown a noticeable improvement over the one before in the last few iterations I've uploaded.

Fantastic work! Thumbs Up

I'm not at the beach, but did a brisk 100 k run this morning with marks latest map in. I only did around 50 k's on the the first roller map so it's hard for me to compare the two. But it's a big improvement on the factory jobbie. It has a very smooth but hard acceleration from low rpm to top end, don't know what the last couple of thousand rpms will show yet, Rosso only cracked 800 km's today . Thanks again Mark Thumbs Up cheers
Oh , my bike has a niggly vibe at around 3000 rpm, but I've been to lazy to check the sync on the throttle bodies yet Razz

I'd actually like to put the narrow band O2 sensor back in and throw the GRS8V-01 map back into mine just for a laugh. Unfortunately I don't have a copy of that and anyway my bike is rollerised now.

It's hard to remember exactly how shitty that map was, fuck it was dreadful but I didn't know any better at the time Very Happy!

Took the Green Horror out for a quick punt down a well known road near Bermi. 2'nd gear air is back. Twisted Evil

Pete, is that a power wheelie or are you prodding it with the clutch stick?

My Hypermotard (1078 2V) used to pull 2nd gear wheelies out of corners all the time.
Gave you the shits till you got used to it, then it was fun! clown

How'd the "Cop-Be-Gone" work Pete?

Cop-be-gone was surprisingly effective. I only saw one of them yesterday Very Happy

As for the wheelies? Scream it almost to the limiter in first grab a bit of clutch while shifting and then just bang it home full noise and tug on the bars! It's not a real tall stand-up but it's still impressive with my 107kg+ gear on board!

That's the stock map trimming the buggery out of the fuel.

Ron's is just can't-be-arsed-tuning-my-bike syndrome. cheers

Bit more feedback on the new Hi-Pipe +dBk map.

Most noticeable is the low speed/small throttle opening behaviour. This is quite stupidly good and believe me I had ample opportunity to find this out coming back from the beach this morning. There was a four Km tailback coming into Moruya, a two km tailback into Batemans Bay and to cap it off a SEVEN km tailback coming into Braidwood! The whole trip was a bloody zoo! While able to squirt up the outside or inside of quite large parts of the trip I also spent a fair bit of time at walking pace. First gear at idle with the clutch out. No missing or hunting, just 'Pobble-pobble', brilliant! When the speed picked up above walking pace the only use the clutch was to mitigate the 'Clonk' from the reactive drive.

In any gear it will pull quite happily from sub 2,000 if you want to do that and when you get to over 3,000 you can open it up and everything just goes stupid! Any gear. Any road speed. It just *Works*! The only other bikes I've had that had such silly tractability are the Mana and my old 'Vert, both of which have auto transmissions, (One fluid, one an E-CVT.)

There has been no sacrifice to the midrange and top end, in fact the midrange seems stronger again than it did with the last iteration.

Incidentally, the vibe at 3,000-ish people are mentioning I don't believe is related to the engine at all. I have a feeling it is a primary gear harmonic in the gearbox. It isn't annoying enough to worry me but I'm thinking of experimenting with oil viscosity in the box, maybe using a coctail of 75/90 and 85/140 to see if I can try to minimise it. I hasten to add I don't think it's causing any damage, it's just there and noticeable. There is no need to be super-anal over the oil spec in the box as most of the bearings are sealed 2RS types so you can thicken up the mix as long as you take time to warm it up sufficiently. Given lots of people run 85/140 in five speeds with no issues I can't see thicker oil causing. Problem in the Nuovo Six Speeds on either the pushrod or Hi-Cam bikes.

Also just as a funny for all of those that reckon the stock airbox is restrictive and limits performances? When I lifted the seat to remap I found that the logging widget and the diagnostic port had come loose and had been sucked into the airbox port, (At Mark's behest I have removed my snorkel.). They were almost completely occluding the inhalation orifice! Thing is it must of been like that for ages given the amount of dust on them both Very Happy. So in this configuration, with a great big plastic lump in the intake, when I decided to squirt away from Mark over the Plains Road after we'd done his tyre change I was still pulling away hard at an indicated 220kph! "Open up the airbox! It's strangled!" I shit 'em! And yes, of course it goes better now I've, (Ahem!) *Relocated* some shit and thee is not a trace of soot in my tailpipe but really! Put down the snake oil and smell the coffee! Thumbs Up cheers

I think you should now let me do a 'laying upon of hands' and allow me to add a dummy load and set up your LC-2 to trim the sub 4K to perfection. What say you?
