This is a conclusion of another thread i started, but I felt that this deserved a thread of its own due to how much it made me laugh with joy!
I recently posted on here, trying to fix my surging problem on the Vee after I changed the TPS. I figured out that it was the mapping, so on with trying different maps! I didn't like any of cheffs maps from his dyno, (go figure) and criscokid's map was ok. I used the later map from someone else's dyno with all the same stuff as my bike before I changed the tps and the map worked great.
I settled on Big B's map after using the map compare function, seeing that they did quite a bit of work on tuning it right and his setup is identical to mine other than being an 04'. I rode it around the neighborhood this morning and it felt great, smooth power with no surging anywhere and I felt like it did feel a bit stronger. I left for work this afternoon and got to the on ramp for the highway, which was backed up about 5 cars. I saw an opening coming up in the fast lane, so I decided I would go around the other cars in the far lane. Started going in first gear til I got out in the road and gunned it to speed up with traffic ( and grin
My bike almost always lifts the front wheel when I hit it hard from slow or stop, I'm very used to that and I love it. But when I ht the throttle today my bike came ALL THE WAY UP through the entire first gear and finally sat down halfway through second at 65! I have TRIED to do this before and not succeeded w/o getting scared, (I'm not the stunting type) but this was all a power wheelie! To add to the awe of that, I literally just filled my tank 3 miles before and had my tank bag on with my lunch! Another jaw drop here for you, I'm running a 140/60 tire on the back that's only 2000 miles new!
Needless to say, I have found my perfect map, and I honestly don't care if my gas mileage goes down below 40. (As long as it doesn't go below 35) I never knew a map could make this big of a difference in power. On top of that, it rides smooth, no stumbling, no surging, and only a bit of backfire, which I don't mind. I'm sold on this. I hope all of you find a map or farkle for your bike that makes you as happy as this one did to me. Mind you though, YMMV, everyone's bike is set up differently.
I just felt that I needed to share this with everyone
