I have been trying all modes as much as I can. I'm kind of confused with my results. I find the bike much more easy to wheelie and land wheelies more gentle than any other mode. If in fact maybe A mode feels like it has less power.... It's probably just me and not being very familiar with the bike. Question is... if you were to dyno the bike in A mode and then B mode how would they compare. Is there actually a HP difference in the modes or is it a throttle response type of setting?

There is no hp difference so to speak, only the way the throttle responds. Standard is normal response as you twist the throttle, B mode is slightly slower response and A mode is slightly faster throttle response.

Thou i think B mode limits total throttle response to approx 80%... iirc... ?

B = Boring.
STD = Standard fun.
A = Awesome fun.

You can wheelie this bike in all 3 modes in the first 2 gears, and STD/A mode in 3rd gear if you try hard enough. A mode has a whole lot more throttle response than B mode.........very sharp.

B mode limits top end hp. Difference between A and std is how fast the throttle ramps up. Use std and learn gentle throttle control. It will pay off in the end. A is for idiots (like me and poogamer69).

The dyno runs that I saw has A and Std with the same amount of HP, but B is down about 10-15%. The throttle is more progressive in A mode.
Do the Stoltec flash. Wheelies are less hairy.

only warranty issue should be the ECU if the ECU fails. Since it isn't impacting actual fueling or changing the fuel maps in any way it doesn't impact anything but the throttle response. If it came down to it i just wouldn't tell them, judging by my experience with dealership mechanics they aren't the brightest.
