Been there, and I know that feeling.  ::)  Even though it's insured, you don't want them to loose it because it would be a long painful road back to a running bike.  Good luck!  Mine shipped fine both ways.  The USPS tracking for mail along the route is not accurate.
Wait a minute. USPS... Accurate... That's an oxymoron!  :rotflmao:

Anyone who puts Steve down is exactly as Steve describes. I've had conversations with him as a customer over the phone at 7:30pm as he helped me diognose a cam issue. Is YOUR business prepared to give THAT kind of sercice??

Thanks Steve for all your efforts. Now, when's that flash coming for the C-10???

Aww, it's EZ to do.
Just, Give it a lot of gas and let go of the clutch.  :-\ <evil grin>

Should have clarified that. No clutch, it was twisting the throttle in first gear.  :motonoises:  :beerchug:

Ok, got my ECU back Monday from Steve..... Am I the only one that sweated bullets plugging that thing back in?   Got it plugged in and buttoned up Monday afternoon. Hit the starter and SUCCESS!

Did a quick 15 mile loop covering neighborhood and highway riding.  This flash transforms the bike, does pull harder in the first 4 gears. Low speed throttle control is MUCH smoother. Before I had my warm idle set to around 1600-1700 to overcome the starting "stumble"  post flash I turned it down to 1300 and it purrs and pulls SMOOTHLY right off idle.

I did get the decal flash and tested it with both smooth roll off and chopping the throttle.  controlled roll off is very smooth, chopping is a little smoother than stock (not much he can do there) but still choppy (go figure right? LOL)  I thought I should clarify, by chopping I mean current throttle input  to 0 throttle as quickly as I could manage.

Gonna have a 200 mile trip on Thursday with a fight H-Town traffic at the end. Will report back on highway and traffic handling then.  I also get to test bars in the stock position, having removed the spacers and pullbacks ( I have a 33 inch inseam and a 36 1/2 inch sleeve, probably only the second generation in my family to walk upright ;)

Short term conclusion? The flash is SO WORTH IT for the connie. 

Thanks Steve !
