2WDW ECU reflash

Recommended Posts

oldsocks
So I read the posts about the 2WDW ECU reflash and I pulled the trigger last week. Although I am not nearly as technical and I think @phicurious86 did a fantastic and thorough job describing the details about the gains in his review, I thought I would chip in my two cents for what it is worth.
 
I have the rapid red with the Yoshimura carbon and when I removed the ECU to ship to Nels I went ahead and removed the snorkel. It is a different bike now. By far the best money spent on modification yet. It is smoother and better all around and it is quicker getting there. I must say I didn't think I could like this bike more, but with the reflash it has bolstered the grin factor. This thing is a sheer pleasure the cruise around and enjoy the wind and if I hit the throttle it gets ridiculous quickly! If you are on the fence about it all I can say is it has been a significant improvement over the stock flash. Two thumbs up for sure! 
 
Thanks Nels & 2WDW!

What exactly does the flash do to the bike? I will have a Yosh pipe on soon probably will not use the CO and hope that it helps with the ridiculous engine braking. Getting tired of the lunging and leeching and poor shifts. Thanks.

CO?  You'll need either a piggyback system (like EJK) or flash (like 2WDW) to reduce engine breaking and optimize the fueling.

I would also like to reduce engine breaking. I want mine to last a long time.

I think there may be a confusion between engine braking and engine breaking. The tune has nothing to do with the engine breaking (longevity), but does reduce the engine braking (slowing the bike down with the engine). Not sure if the comments were on purpose to poke fun or actual confusion, but figure clarification may help future/new members.

Jokes aren't as funny when you explain them.

Oh man.
 
So I took out my ECU, and used the best flash I had which is an old Polaroid.  I did not use the flash on my iphone because someone told me that is just a white LED light.  So I put it on my work table, centered the camera to make sure the entire ECU was in the photo, and snapped away.  Don't worry the flash came on and it flooded the ECU with its light.  I went and re-installed it onto the FZ07 and I did not notice any difference in my motorcycle handling, I hope I didn't do any engine breaking!  :(

The very notion of a woman's nude body affecting an array of computer chips? Absurd and absolutely ridiculous! Good day sir!
