Hey Steve-
I'd love to do this if you can hold off on getting riding feedback until the first week of the new year.?
(gonna be on vacation in your neck of the woods from the 24th~31st...) :49:

If it doesn't work out, my question(that you've probably already thought about) is how will the Evolution flash be priced for those of us that have already purchased one of your previous flashes but would now like to try this one?
Do we have to pony up the full price all over again or can we upgrade for a smaller fee?
Hate to say it, but your currently available flashes are such an improvement over stock that I think it may be hard for anyone that already has one of your flashes to justify paying full-price all over again only to receive subtle(yet desired) improvements.
Maybe I'm wrong- :??:

Either way, just let me know.
-Jesse

  Jesse, you're in. You know the other flashes, you know tuning, you are a great person for test / evaluate. Email me and I'll send you the shipping info.

   The Evolution flash is going to be 375.00 with shipping. I'll reflash ECU's with this upgrade for 75.00. Those less discerning may not notice the difference;  others will pick up on the smoothness and throttle control immediately.

  Brian... yes it will work on an FJR, but I don't think the c-14 guys would appreciate me making the feejers fast like their c-14's so I'm not going to release it to the FJR croud  :rotflmao:

   BTW, Laketrax makes #5. If anyone is backing out, let me know now. Steve

Steve, If you want to give my spot to Dan I'm OK with it. Through no fault of your own just don't have a fuzzy about sending by bikes brain through usps. I love my current flash you threw on in Helen and if this works out I'll pay the coin if your in Mo Twisties. That or I'll do a drive by when I make that bucket list trip to Daytona.  :great: :beerchug:

Yes I can ride. I'm in the PNW and we usually do not have icy roads which is the only thing that keeps my bike in the garage.

Mark, because of Dan's ambient weather conditions, I need to pass on that as a good test. You're back in. No way out now, or you like a girl who can't make up her mind   ;)  Steve

Ok, Christmas is over and my ECU is boxed/ready to go.
    Update: Shipped...

Was warm (82*) so I went for a ride yesterday with my current (Decell) flash.
Wanted to refresh my memory before sending in my ECU.
Man, that thing is great.

Gonna be rough for the new to be even better.
But I suspect, somehow,,, ya did it.

Can't wait to give it a try!!

Ride safe, Ted

Ok, my first reply in.  Received the EVO flash late last week.  Due to a bad cold, I've been unable to ride till today.  But...if the first short ride to work is any indication, I can't wait to get out and really stretch her legs out!  I had the original flash and absolutely loved it.  This one is butter smooth in normal riding conditions.  Docile as a lamb til you twist the throttle a bit and she quickly moves on out.  The real treat for me was the decel.  This was a quick ride to work, so I haven't tapped all the potential yet.  I'm riding down for the Last Blast this Friday morning so I should be able to tell more.  But, so far this EVO flash is a WINNER! :motonoises: :great:

Wow Steve. How could it be perceptibly better? I doubted I would notice anything major. Rode the first flash for 2,000 miles. The decel flash for 1,000 miles and then another beta flash for the past 20,000 miles. Each one has been a major improvement I couldn't have expected over stock. I never had any complaints - but the improvements were welcomed and amazing. So, it is again.

Someone once used a radio volume knob analogy comparing to the throttle inputs. Stock Connies have 1-5. FLashed Connies felt like they had 1-25. Now I feel like my throttle is an infinite dictator of the engine's demeanor and performance. I pulled around a UPS truck in a residential neighborhood in 4th gear at about 1200 rpm. Pulled out like butter. That's unreal! We rode 2-up through a hilly and windy neighborhood road and could hear people commenting on how quietly we were cruising through there. I don't know if there is a more docile and powerful bike out there. Fine tuning is a really good thing.

The few chances I had to get on it were the first times I felt the clutch really work shifting from 2nd to 3rd, and at only about 8,500rpm, Ewa loved it! The power is beyond what I'll ever need but the smoothness and control is unreal. More power dealt more evenly is a great thing. We rode about 120 miles in total, and it was sublime with the EVO tune. I'll get some 1-up riding in after the New Year and can't wait to hit my mountain roads quietly - but FAST!!

Betty loves it, I love it. Not sure there is a better bike in the world than a flashed Connie. Going riding again right now! 50* and sunny for a few more hours  :motonoises:

Steve, THANK YOU and I'll report back about John's Area P flash to you when he ever rides it. He is excited.
