Default Re: Re-map or not?

So, just in case someone googles this some day and are left wondering if the re-map was ever done......

There was a general failure warning on the bike ever since I tried to turn on the heated grips (which it transpired, weren't actually fitted ). I popped into M50 Honda/KTM in Ballymount a few weeks ago and rather cheekily asked them to reset the warning message on the dash (I bought my bike from a dealer in the UK). "No problem". I was advised that there was an outstanding recall due on the front brake master cylinder, which they offered to complete under warranty. Dropped the bike into them today for the recall and got them to download the Akra/decat map while they were at it.

I didn't notice any performance gains after fitting the decat pipe at Christmas, although the reduction in weight was very noticeable. After the re-map today it's a completely different bike!! Holy shit. To say I'm impressed would be a gross understatement Smoother response rolling on from a closed throttle at low speed, midrange vastly improved, top end of the rev range feels about the same as before. The whole connection between the throttle and the engine is so much smoother, crisper, better.

So to summarise, yes a remap is most definitely the way to go....

To summarise... EVERY (fuel injected) bike needs a remap. They're supplied with a 'one-size-fits-all' map, which spans too many variables. It facilitates (see 'compromises') anything from below freezing at low pressures in mountain regions to sea level pressures at desert temperatures.
A remap should be on everyone's Christmas list.
