I am on the market for a new literbike and this information has piqued my curiosity. I have a few questions, though:
1- Does this re-flash of the ecu you are suggesting, with increased rpm limit, power and all, affect the oem warranty? I mean, if you blow up an engine, I doubt Kawa USA or Kawa Canada will want to pay for anything, as you dramatically altered the bike and the parameters within which it will operate (extended rpm range, as an example). Any official info on this?
2- Would you have a graph of the torque curve (before and after the reflash)
3- Are these measurements taken with a totally stock bike and then the same totally stock bike with only the reflash?
4- Seeing that the additional HP is achieved mainly in the over-revs allowed by altering the stock rev-limiter, it does not look like it is going to make it a better street bike (or a better track bike if the track is tight, for that matter) unless you dramatically improved the torque curve. I am correct?
6- Will the map you are creating work for everyone, given that we all ride in different countries/areas at different altitude, barometric pressure, etc.?
Thanks for providing all the details.
