this opinion has been covered exhaustively...it even shut down a similar thread so lets agree that were all aware of this and this thread is not meant for those that worry about the warranty. personally, id like for the information to flow and not get shut down again.I assume that messing with the Engine Control Module will leave a trace in the software that will void any engine and drive train warranty.
I took that to mean that the operator shut it down, not the ECU.I would be curious to know what sort of power that engine can put out with a small amount of tweaking. I'm not talking different hardware, simply a remap. I bet it is pretty "healthy."
I'm very suspicious that this ECU knows it's on a dyno and holds back. The HP and torque curves are suspiciously identical to the previous engine and this engine is completely different. (Same basic boxer six, but that's where it ends.) Theoretically, this engine should have "gobs" more power than the previous engine.
Will this allow people to flash new fueling maps? I've found that on my yamaha the low rpm range was really jerky due to Euro emission requirements. Flashing a new fueling map really helped smooth power delivery and make the bike much more manageable. I know that the GW is pretty smooth to begin with, but I also know that having to engineer around Euro emissions comes with compromise.
