my results, has had some engine work
I personally feel a custom map is all ways best and worth it as you know it's right and getting the best it can get.
Dyno run is also great to watch and hear
As for difference unless your bike is running poor on the download map or your ride like a god, it's very unlikely you will notice much of a difference. My CB came with custom map but on my Gixer I put a download map on and it was running good, I spent time and money on custom map and it did improve slightly just didn't feel it was £160 worth of different.
If you change the kit on your bike regular an alternative way is to add a dynojet auto tune as that optimisers the map automatically for you to ensure its at it best at all times I believe although never tried one personally.

Honda CB1000RA Extreme - Sienna Red 2010
The older I get the slower I go, but the faster it seems
^ gawd damn! Define engine work.
got the bike 6 years now and upgraded it over those 6 years.
first step was akra pipe with link pipe, bmc air filter and rapidbike evo module, and those velocity stacks ( those trumpet thingys ) got me to the 125 rearwheel hp that most cb1000r's have.
next step was custom pistons, fireblade camshafts ( i think grinded to a less aggressive profile ) new valve springs, flowing of cylinder head, valve and valve seats got cut. the bike was set up to make more rpm's also but that failed ( that's the blue line ).
the increasing of the rpms should have been done by (a dealer of ) ecunleash ( i have seen someone else in this topic also having bad experiences with them ) but they never managed to do it ( even tho they advertise that ). It was a struggle of actually 2 years with sending the ecu back and forth without results ( i even lost power, suddenly i had only 136 hp once ). at a certain point they didn't want to help anymore.
so we installed a custom ecu, bike pulls all the way to 12800 rpm now. it has allot of usable power, its very direct and it basically pulls from from any gear and rpm.
next and probably last step will be the arrow header and boring out the throttle bodies ( maybe in some way install a bigger one ) but i definitely don't want to lose much of the punch at low rpm ( its a naked bike ) so just boring them might be better for what i want. the cb1000r got tbs of 36mm which is rly small compared to any other non touring bike, so i think and hope it can get me over 160hp maybe.
that will be for next year tho
What have you done with the gearing?
gearing is stock, i have a 17t sprocket around here somewhere but i'm not going to install it.
i think the stock cb has even more limited rpm in 6th gear, and it limits you at 250 kmh (on the dash) , so that explains the km/h you see, all those restrictions are gone.

Wow, that's one hell of a speed difference with no gearing change! What are you using for an ECU?
So much torque!
its called an ignijet module, it didnt gave me any power increase but got rid of all restrictions of the original ecu.
this screen is from a different dyno.
the red line from this screen is from 2 years ago when he was original made the blue line was when i got it back from ecunleashed.
( i have no clue what they did all the time with my ecu )
we were actually hoping the curve would go up more but it was at his top.
After 5 years you replied to a dead post from a member that hasn't been on for a year and a half. You win the internetz.
