I finally got around to getting my ECU reflashed.

What a difference it makes. Kirk at FT was awesome. The throttle issues are cured. Hallelujah! I'm running the Akropovic Carbon exhaust and there's not a hint of popping on decel. The ECU reflash was $200 well spent. I'm sure dyno tuning and/or PC would be even better, but I'm satisfied and won't be spending any more money on engine performance.

The next bit of money will be spent on the suspension.

Flashtunes site is less than intuitive. So the $200 charge is a one time tune fixing some of the FZ issues, throttle opening, fuel cut off, etc. Does the $200 tune also modify fuel/timing maps? Account for aftermarket exhaust etc?

I searched the site but most posts here were concerning the kit with the cables and base tune.

Thanks!

They have a generic tune map part of their "in house" flash. I'm not a big believer of the one size fit all fuel map. Timing and throttle is fine but if you want your bike 100% tune I will suggest a piggyback tuner like either EJK or PCV. That's what I do...

I walked it in. I'm in California on summer break. I shipped my bike to Los Angeles (where I'm from) because I don't ride it enough in Florida.
