3k up in Gauteng can work for me but traveling down to CT will cost me more than the R needed to buy and dyno  a pc up here . Stuff the waranty mine's gone many moons ago  :mwink:

Ok - Geoff has indicated that he could re-map 5 to 6 bikes a day...........  will call him later today and discuss what he'd want?

Obviously a helluva long trip to SA, but we could use this as a great opportunity to promote SA as a riding destination as well.
Costs we'd look at would be flights, accomodation & food...........  no idea on timeline. but let me see whether I can get some more info - will pass on!

Maybe the dogs can help with accomodation for a discount   :pot: Might have a contact in PTA for cheaper dyno and maybe a bit of info swap   ???

Lets say we do it, ...is there a way to "reverse" the ECU flash, or get it back to the BMW spec? I agree fully with the fueling problem, and the R3k layout, although high, sounds like an investment to me. The fueling modules out there like WL and PC are doing a great job, but they don't replace the base problem, which is the risky way in which BMW overcame the EU3 emission control legislation by leaning out the AF mix. I reckon, they decided that the engine is bulletproof, and they don't have an engine right now to replace the iconic boxer with, (that's why the watercooled model is on its way mind you) so they are going to cast everything in the wind and rely on the engine's inherent longevity. We cant rely on that, because we don't get the same high octane fuel, 98RON here in SA land!

But the service will have to be "sold" to a competent workshop in RSA to do it for us, with dyno capabilities. I would rather go the route of having someone in SA do this for us, but under the guidance of your Guy in the UK. Will this be possible?

This was my thought as well.......... understandably he's obviously very protective over his methods and software.......... it is after all his company, income etc. so to just ask him to "give" us his technology is tantamount to walking into a bank and asking them to hand over their cash... I for one would quite simply teel anyone that asks or expects that to get stuffed.

So diplomacy and discussion is what it's all about......... obviously we would all like to have the best performance from our bikes - longevity... well at this stage this is questionable indeed......... 

lets see what tomorrow brings!

Would be interested and can guarantee another 2 interested parties.
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

Goose - does this apply to the DOHC post 2010 models only or also ito the pre-2010 SOHC models as well?

If it does include the SOHC models, I will try and another 2009 from Jhb to ride down.....

This applies to both the SOHC and DOHC engines.

At the moment the general feeling would be that we should try to arrange a centre in Cape Town as well as one in JHB.

We're looking for about 20 bikes/people that are willing to share the costs to make this venture viable.
Costs would include a return flight to the UK for this chap and his computer........ accomodation and meals as well as perhaps the use of a GS/A and to take him on some trips in the Western Cape as well as Gauteng area. We'd probably look at around 10-day period to make it viable - sort of "working-holiday" to make it worth his while.
I'd like to suggest that the outrides/trips are put together in such a way that on his return to the UK - he would be so taken aback by this whole trip in SA that he'd promote our riding area's and people as a riding venture. (He has the connections)

It would be great if we can get a Jhb venue - I am much more likely to be available, and if i am not, the bike will be (I am due in Australia, cost is insane!!) - rides around here can be organised as we all know - I am happy to help. What accomodation are you looking at - hotel, B&B, staying with a WD?
