Reprogramming ECM

Not that I am intending to do so, I am just curious. While searching for a V-Strom on e-bay, I ran across several ads touting a programmer to reprogram the brain on the Stroms. Anyone have any experience with this? I've seen pretty amazing performance gains on diesel pickups but not much difference on gas cars and truck. I am just curious if there are any real gains to be had on a Strom.

It's unusual for 650s to improve much. 1000s can often benefit because the older engine design is really lean for emissions purposes.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
