That's really a personal decision.  I have Steve's flash and I highly recommend it.  Steve has supported the COG community for several years. Do some research on this forum and see for yourself.  I feel I can vouch for Steve's character and integrity but I don't have any good things to say about Ivan.

   While I appreciate the kind words, and despite all the water under the bridge, I have never heard anything bad about Ivan's work or his customer service.  While he and I may have different approaches and goals in what we do, at least he's put the work in, which is more than I can say for any other flashes I know of.

The two of you should collaborate on a super flash! Call it the STIVAN FLASH! Get to work and release it at the national.

First off to Wolverine.
I'm using the PC-V map M17-22-001 setting on my downloads.
it says:
"2010 Kawasaki ZG1400
Stock exhaust
Stock air filter"

I have a 1012 ZG 1400 CCF

Like I said, my plugs are Close to perfect with two brothers M5- titanimun and P1X silencer and K&N air filter.

Others may cry "but you'll run lean at 100% throttle!" All I have to say to that is "I'm Not" and "Who has the balls to run for more than a couple seconds at 100% throttle on a Concours on a public road?"

As far as ECO mode goes. and I'm no expert on the matter. I've always assumed the PC-V takes whatever input the stock ECU sends it and adjusts according to the given map. All I know is I haven't set up any "switch or secondary map" but the ECO mode trigger still leans the mapping out when I pull and hold it for the two seconds prescribed in users manual.

Pete, the 09 does not have an eco mode.   I set my PCV up with a secondary map that I used as an eco mode.  The switch was used to trigger the map change on the PCV.
