Flashing GSXR ecu, updated

Thoughts? If legit seems like a better and less expensive to a power commander and tre. Modifies all 8 injectors like the Bazzaz.
Tempting.....

Think its a repost, i remember someone else speaking about this in another thread last season

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

There is a device called Tekka-tool (sp) I belive with that you can flash your ECU on board, but I belive it is not as dedicated as a Powercommander, Bazzaz or any other Performance ECU.

Just remember the one concept that it goes off what mods you have and bases the ECU flash off a general baseline (similar to the free maps from Dynojet). Id think you would get more benefit from a powercommander and a custom map thats suited for your bike. Your gixxer is going to be slightly diffrent than mine even if we had the same mods.

More power makes you go faster unless you run out of revs.

I thought this was easy logic.
^sarcasm^


Get a powercommander and dyno tune. Or get a power commander and install a map online it will be just as bad and not made fore your bike that you would flash to your ecm.

If I get the slip-on I want stuff running correct and getting proper fuel. Our bikes run very lean from the factory. Also like the idea of the tre allowing the first couple of gears to have 5th+ gear mapping and smoothing out.

Give safety first or chicagoperformance a call first.
You will most likely do more harm than good without getting a dyno tune to your bike.

Think of it as insurance better to be safe than sorry.

Rich is right, Example ive got a Powercomander with a general map from there website downloaded, which would be similar to having the ECU flashed with a General idea of where your bike should be, and im running rich.

Now if i get a dyno tune with the powercommander (in the plans down the road) by people you know and respect like chicago performance (your welcome Ken), then the maps are custom made for how your bike is running.

A general map may put the bike lean (which is not good) or rich (still not great but better than lean). If you got the money drop the coinage and get the dynotune with a powercommander, Plus if for some reason you need to remove the mapping your not stuck waiting for the ECU to get reflashed, Just unplug the PC3 and your good to go

Here's a DIY version.

I'm going to do this when it gets a little warmer.

I did a TRE mod to my 04 GSXR 1000 and I loved it. I would do it again, but like they guy says in his post, you can trick the ECU for the timing, but you lose the compensation for the RAM air effect as well as your gear indicator.

I'm a little nervous, since it doesn't quite say how to save your original flash software.

I know, that is what the stickers and louder exhaust are for. Stickers, that is where the real hp is........actually just need more testicular fortitude
Last season I made really big gains with the new bike. Having the proper tool for the job and not having to worry about dropping my British streetbike did lots for my mindset and confidence.

Flame on.....
Yesterday I dropped it in, put the battery in and wheeled it outside and gave it the first start of the season. Just let it warm up to temp but didn't ride. Hope to have a ride report this week if it warms up as expected and hopefully stays dry.

Well, here we go.
I got my flashed computer back for my 07 gsxr600. As you can see from the pics the post above gsxrtune covered their butt buy putting a for offroad and track use only sticker on it. We don't have emissions tests in IL yet for bikes but I guess they planned ahead. On the back of the unit is a label with what was done, TRE, rev limiter raised to 16K (stock it redlines at 16k but has a soft limiter at 15.5 I think), fuel map for my exhaust and std timing corrections.
So, what the hell does all that do? I have had the bike out 3 times so far. It really woke up the bike. Especially in the lower gears and especially in the low to mid rpm range (pulls a lot harder), also seems to rev faster. Is this a miracle mod that makes it feel like a 750 or 1000, was Suzuki hiding 25 hp? Am I lifting the front wheel at every light. No of course not, but everything does feel really crisp and snappy. Exhaust sounds good and there is no popping on decel or other odd sounds that can come from tossing a slip-on on a stock bike. Really hard to explain but from the seat of my butt dyno it works well and I notice a difference. Maybe picture a bike that had really fouled plugs and a dirty air filter, still runs but is less responsive and you just know it could be better. You pop in new plugs and air filter and it just feel like it really woke up. Kinda like that. Real test will be on the track, this is where things are really obvious but so far the street testing has had good results. In my opinion it was worth every penny. My favorite mod still being my gearing. This was a great complement to it.
