I'd get the Bazzaz first, create a map, than send it off to Anthony...He will make good better..Actually, I've heard you could just get the flash and they will create the map in there, or something along those line; haven't looked into it myself (custom map here).

Re: muffler removal, is it really worth it ?

There's something to be said for having the ability to customize your map for the weather of the day.... But whether it's worth >$400 to you or not is up to you.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Ahhh, very true - good point; I don't think about such things because, lets face it, we have no weather here So Cal....haha

where im so close to the ocean, some days its really humid, other days its bone dry, so i could see the benifits of making quick changes for humidity. but would it make that much of a difference?

Re: muffler removal, is it really worth it ?

People spend the money for a full system and tuning for performance/hp gains...... but I still don't believe it is financially viable make all these changes just for street riding. If you have a dedicated track bike, by all means. And these gains won't be noticeable until you reach the higher RPMs.... because our bikes lack balls when under 8K rpm.

that really depends on what you plan on doing with the bike. if its just going to remain a street bike then i wouldnt stress it. if you are going to the track a lot, and more so if you are traveling to different tracks it could be nice to have a bazzaz to fine tune as needed but really that would apply more for someone that races if even at all.

yea, ill be lucky if i get 1 track day this summer, because i have to take a ferry to nova scotia, and thats not cheap. so perhaps ill just get chief to do the flash and get the muffler delete and call it good.
