    Possibly because as soon as you put it in gear and the valve is fully open its full rukus.

    The map also changes fly by wire sensor for a much better throttle response. (you here it re calibrating when hooked up to the navigator)

    And you get more ignition timing which means more fuel which means go faster not further.

    That's good to hear stickers! I've got a filter, just waiting to see how I go updating the mapping. How did you go about it? Was your dealer able to load the race map for you?

    You plug your dike up to the navigator at your dealership this lets them get the serial number from you ecu.

    Then they send this with a fabricated akrapovic receipt number to aprilia.

    Then aprilia send the navigator codes to upload the RACE map for your bike usually within 24 hours.

    Hey Swannie, how much did Springwood charge you for the re-map?

    Had anyone tried any other velocity stacks in the tuono?

    I've also updated the performance mods advice at the start of the thread

    Hey swannie007, I must of mist where you mentioned if you did the remap (race map) using OEM exhaust or a slip on? Thanks for letting me know.
    By the way, does yours get really hot riding in traffics. I saw 108 deg riding last week in Bris?

    Hey Olloza, I had the remap done with my Werkes slip-on. Yes, mine does get hot riding in traffic, I have seen 105 deg in the past.

    Did mine today with a stock pipe, after a short run it feels great, much better behaved under 4K in city riding and very tricky how the exhaust valve opens when you pop it into gear and closes when you stop, even when you walk it forward or backwards in N it opens, it has made a noticeable difference to the db through the lower rev range.

    Thanks Wayne for announcing it & thanks to the very helpful guy's at SS.

    You are most welcome. It is always good to spread the good word and help out friends. By the way, have you purchased an aftermarket muffler yet? I ask as I will be putting my Werkes pipe up for sale in a few weeks as I have ordered another pipe and it should be at home when I get back for my next R&R. I will then remove the Werkes pipe and replace it with the new one. The ONLY reason I am replacing it is because I prefer the looks of something else, it is in perfect condition and I will make you a sweet deal if you are interested.
