    Modded Colector/Headers and Chip - First Feedback.

    Let me start with a big thank you to REDRAT and SOULDADDY as well as Ed at Forza Aprilia for their good advice, and help. Second, if anyone hasn't done this mod - which i find hard to believe - don't wait. It doesn't disapoint.

    Fitted the modded collector and FR200 chip last night but haven't hooked up a EGA or messed with the Airbleeds - Plug n Play. Didnt really have time (or the right clothing - i had shorts on, temperature has been around 38deg C all week) for an exhaustive test. But pulling on the Autobahn on my way back from the Workshop, short shifted into second and pinned it at 2000rpms. Where previously the bike would have bucked and kicked and demanded a lower gear, it just went! From 3K it pulled smoothly and cleanly bringing the front wheel up and just kept going. The "dip" between 4 and 6K is gone and the bikeis so fast and aggressive there now i can see me riding more there than higher in the rev range. What a transformation. Money well spent and as always with things like this, why did the bike not come this way from the factory?


    Trackday this coming Saturday, so i hope to have more to report next week.

    Well, ... yes! I have only had the Mille for a Year and a Half, prior to that it was in Mothballs since 2006 ish. Fantastic bang for buck, Every Mille should have come this way.

    A brief addtion to whats already been said, yesterday i did a track at the Spreewald Ring. My first time there and it is a very short and twisty track with the longest straight not being more than 150 meters. What i really noticed, whilst learning the track behind the instructors and later when we were all going a bit quicker was that new setup of the bike and the vastly improved bottom end allowed me to use 3rd and 4th around the track (as the main two gears) instead of 2nd and 3rd. The bike was easier to ride which allowed me to concentrate more on holding the right lines and trying to build some consistency and presicion lap for lap.

    All in all,a great mod that should be the second thing all Mille owner does right after sorting out the charging system.

    The mods become even better when combined with decent final drive ratios. I run 15/43 which makes the power very usable.

    I have 16 / 44 but will probably try 15 / 43 the next time a chain is due. Looking forwar to hitting the track again, just booked Oscherleben for September.

    Ah, right. To be honest there is very little difference between 15/43 and 16/44. Normally I would go 16/44, but my bike had 15/43 fitted when I bought it.

    That is really perfect. The engine works much much better than before.
