    Yup. Put on 14" Carbon cans with the mid pipe back in December. Haven't done the flash yet but that's next. Love the sound, install was simple too. Much lighter especially without the cat. So far hasn't tripped the check engine light even with the EXUP disabled.

    I talked to Tim, he hasn’t got a flash for a Delkavic system yet, but he suggested to try his “Mikes pipe”, or “Crays” flash to get close, he needs a dyno tune on one to get the ones and zeroes to line up for the Delkevic setup.

    Yea he told me the same thing but he figured it would work just fine. Just gotta get my ECU out and send it. How long does it take to remove for those that have already done it?

    It's under the faux tank cover. Not as easy to take off like the first gen. I think there are 7 Allen screws holding it on. And I think you'll have pull the scoops off also I'm pretty sure there is one screw on each side under the scoops, been awhile since I had mine off. Two at the back between it and the scoops, two at the very front (you'll have to turn the bars full lock both directions to see them) pull the info panel cover (1 screw on top) and then there are two(there are 4 but only two need to be removed, I always pull out the wrong two, and have to pull out the other two lol) that hold the screen(not necessary to remove the screen but can if you want) and the cover to the top of the air box, and lift off. ECU is back by the seat, you'll see it right by the battery. Pop off the negative cable. And it snaps out of the holder, and unplug it. Mail it to Tim, wait, wait, open box. Inspect for damage, install in reverse order. I heard there might be some codes, clear those out, and your ready to ride after you button it back up. Not that bad really. :) I need to get mine reflashed, but I've got other projects taking the funds at the moment. Still stock, but that surge is annoying at times.

    Thanks for the instructions, sounds like something I can handle. And the surging and weird throttle response won't be missed. Should be great with the limiters removed in 1,2, and 3rd gear too.

    Yeah I can't imagine it without a limiter lol. I can get it to break loose sometimes. I imagine it'll be effertless with the limiter removed. I'm used my gen 1 when v boost kicked in it would always break loose, or pick the front tire if you're weight was too far back lol.
