Flash! Right On!
« on: March 16, 2016, 12:45:34 am »
They say this cat Steve is a bad Mutha f..... shut your mouth!   :))

Got flashed two months ago and just picked the bike up from storage Sunday, March 13. Rode home in partial rain with mid 40ยบ's so couldn't really get to feel the difference until I ran out of the rain and hit dry roads. I had a second gear, low rpm roll on that truly blew my mind. I really couldn't believe the difference. Amazing job Steve and thank you!

I keep seeing references to getting the ECU flashed, and references to Steve, but I haven't yet seen a post showing who this mysterious man of power is or how to contact him.

He's not like Fight Club, is he?

With my propensity for taking forever to complete projects, I'd rather wait!

After putting on about 75 miles since getting the bike out of storage (rode to work on Monday but its snowing today!), I have another compelling reason to reflash the bike. SAFTEY! I almost dropped my bike twice with the previous factory flash after stalling it leaving driveways on an incline. The low rpm lugging really bothered me and now its gone.

That is a big mistake and you WILL regret that decision. :-[

Just sent my ECU off to Steve today.  Steve's customer service is top notch!!  He answered all my annoying emails very promptly.  Can't wait to get it back and try it out. :great:
