PostSubject: Beetle's GRiSO 1100 Map   Mon Nov 20, 2017 6:51 pm

My good friend Gregg Farebrother visited me in the Vic High Country from Sydney over the weekend. He came armed with the guzzidiag stuff and a spaghetti factory of cables and uploaded my recently purchased 1100 map from Beetle.
After saving the old map to the computer we uploaded the new map.
The only slight issue I had with the 1100 was fuel use. It was averaging circa 5.5 litres per 100kms (not terrible, but a tad greedy). This was mostly due to high indicated usage when pushing through 120 kms to say 140/150 where the ave fuel indicated circa 9 litres per 100km.
After 2 modest rides yesterday and today the usage is down to 5.0 litres per 100kms. In particular the fuel usage under real load dropped to the high 6.0's so a real gain here for prolonged spirited riding.

What did impress and surprise me significantly was the roll on smoothness the new map presented. I was not unhappy with the existing roll on, especially hard up through 3rd 4th and 5th gears. However, the new map gave a significant improvement in response time, the engine spooled up more quickly and accelerated more quickly. I don't think this will translate into more top end performance (wasn't looking for it any way), however the bike will get up there more quickly and smoothly. I regarded this aspect as an unexpected and delightful bonus. The bike feels so much more in tune with me now.
So a big hats off Beatle, for developing such a good map and making a lovely bike into a gem, and to Gregg for helping me get there. Thank you both.

Yes Beetle sent me a 1100 map.
And I do not know how he did it but my bike is as smooth as silk.
The guy is a legend in my books.
Yes Beetle take a bow as you have earned it.

Mind sharing the map filename? I have an old beetle map on my G1100, and though it was a massive improvement over the original, I'm curious if things could be even better for the old girl. Still starts revving high after warming up until you pull the revs down with some clutch-brake action.

I would PM Beatle directly. My new Map is on Gregg's laptop so I cant give you its title.

I’m curious about getting a map too. The GRiSO I bought has a Zard exhaust and I have no idea if it was tunned properly afterwards. Haven’t had chance to really feel it out and measure the mpg as it’s been so cold in the northeast US.

Biggest difference I noticed was the disappearance of the on off throttle response. It smoothed it out completely becoming more like a carbed bike than a light switch

Hi all. Just curious. I noticed that for the 8V there’s a different map for every exhaust system out there. Why is there only the one for the 1100?
Thanks.

Simples. I've had access to all those 8V pipes. 1100, not so much.

Ah. So with non OEM exhaust I shouldn’t bother?

What you want? The 'OEM' map will work on most pipes with a dB killer, with a CO trim adjustment. The 2V engine isn't as needy as the 8V. No combustion chamber charge transition issues, for example.

I am currently doing some data logging on my GRiSO 1100 which I will shortly share on the forum.
One thing I can say is that taking the db killer out the Termi silencer does nothing for the performance whatsoever. It actually makes the engine run slightly weaker creating a harsher feeling to the power delivery.

I installed Beetle's 8V Zard NoCat map on my 2009 GRiSO yesterday and took it for first shake down today.
Impressed, although my bike still has flat tappets saw an immediate improvement accross the whole rev range.
Bike no longer pops and crackles on a closed throttle (which all my co-riders used to comment on), throttle response is much smoother especially notable at low speed and the bike just feels much more in tune.
Love it, this has been the best money spent on the beast and if you are running a GRiSO with aftermarkets just do it.
Next step is to upgrade to roller tappets, what is involved here, is it just the replacement of tappets or are new cams needed?

It's a kit. The entire camboxes are replaced. Everything north of the heads and in the case of earlier machines the heads have to be removed to install shims under the valve Spring seats on the inlet valves.

What year is your bike? How many Km has it done? Where are you?

Whoops. 2009 will need a 'C' kit or equivalent. Do it soon.

I take it you mean a Zard? Buy cables, download Guzzidiag + drivers to laptop (Don't forget to donate.) Buy map. Read and store current map. Upload Beetlemap. Tune bike properly. Go ride
