I'm jealous.  Had my ECU flashed last month and can't take her for a ride.  Temps in the teens and a foot of snow here in Michigan.

Sux worse to be you then than me....my condolences. 40 and sunny here today but I took my 1250 Bandit for a shakedown cruise rather than feel how splediferous and dramstically better the C-14 is with the MR flash. Hope that makes it easier for you....

When I went to look at the Z900RS I finally got a chance to ride the new MR flash. Its spot on, does everything I want. Its perfectly suited to my riding style.

I got the Mountain Runner Flash and noticed great improvements in the bike. I've only been able to ride limited but I noticed more power at lower RPM so I was riding in a higher gear and shifting is much smoother for me. There still is sand and salt on the roads here in Kansas so I've not been able to really give it a full test. I can hardly wait for Arkansas in April to try it on the curves and hills. As far as I'm concern the improvements in normal riding are worth it.
On a second important note I would like to tell everyone about Steve's great customer service. I did my flash in December. During the return shipping my ECU got cracked. Looked like it got shut in a door or run over. I left Steve a message and he immediately called me back. I was the first lucky one to have this happen in all the years of his business. He came up with the best plan to get a new ECU and flashed to the bike and sent me a check to cover all the cost from his business so I could get the bike going as quick as possible. I then sent him my new ECU and he flashed it for no additional cost. He did finally get reimbursed from USPS but it took over 2 months and lots of hassles. He was very concerned about getting me riding again as fast as possible, since is winter everything work out fine. I can't say enough how Steve was concern and his fast actions got things all worked out. You do not see this in today's businesses. Steve will treat you right and he cares.

Just returned from the Sport Touring School (Put on by Doug/COG) in Jennings Florida.
Was my first time on a track and so the first time to "really" give the Mountain Runner a good workout.
Most of the riding was done at high RPM's in 2nd and 3rd gear, (with an occasional touch of 4th if I got a curve exactly right.).
Power was extremely smooth/linear. No hic-ups, no stumbles.. Plenty of power.
Roll on from low to high RPM's {out of the tighter curves} was seamless, lots of torque..

What worked best for me was the deceleration.
    I could count on the decell to bring my speed down smoothly without the need to immediately grab the brake.
   This allowed me to decell into a turn, and then add the brake a bit later.

Bottom line: I LIKED IT!!

Ride safe, Ted

Kevin, while your being jealous, I'll mention; "Jorge" was there with us, it was in the 80's, and the weather was beautiful.  >:D
