well i was just checking out the manual and found something i had been wondering about and thought i would share it.
i had heard that there are 2 maps already installed in the new milles, stock and a high performance one.
under the Adjustable Parameters section it says
Engine Variant - Set to 1 for standard mapping, 2 for racing mapping
Bad News (for home tuners, back yard performance shops)
this can only be done using the Axone 2000, so you better kiss your dealer's ass so he can change the mapping!
seriously though, there were questions regarding modifications to the new bikes and how the new computer would react. the catch is that this 'racing' map is designed to be used with the Aprilia/Akropovic exhaust system so if i was shopping around for an exhaust systen for th enew bike i would only be considering the Akro system.
every exhaust pipe requires a little different fuel/ignition mapping to get the best out of it and i found this otu fiorst hand when the full 2-2 Arrow superbike replica system made 20hp/20ft-lbs more than the stock headers with the Harris slipon on the project Tuono i built.
it doesnt hurt that Akropovic is probably know as the best exhaust manufacturer in the world.
no, i have no idea of pricing on the systems for the new bike, and i have no idea if the 'race' map changes the ignition timing.
no green wire to cut, no chip to change, just plug and play.
i'm guessing the first service would be the perfect time to get the pipes installed and the map switched over.
