Pictures later

I got bike back, and after riding it a while to get the ECU to adapt to Sea level, this is my 2c

I have not run the bike against another AT and I have lowered my gearing, dropped 1 in front and 2 more at the back, I like this for the slow rocky stuff. I try to ride offroad as much as possible.

Bike pulls better to me, difficult to judge if it really does. Fuel consumption looks about the same. Definitely revs a little higher, apparently the ECU allows 500rpm higher before shifting when you nail it.

Is it all worth the while, not sure but I suppose it should not be running lean with xhorst change.

The next step is to "Register" the ECU and then more options and features come alive I have been told.

Cheers

....and now we are a few months later, what is the final impression of removing the CAT?

I am toying with the idea of a new silencer but I am scared of unknown brands and can't justify paying over 10k for an Akro, not sure what the Remus that fits the bike costs

Ek het Rapid bike op gesit hulle heel grootste een wat hulle doen vir die AT. Ek het n ander pyp op gesit met airfilters ook gespeel met die sprockets 3 tande op agter ge decat. Eerlik ja daar is n verskil deur die ratte low en mid maar nie regtig bo nie. Dit hang af wat jy wil doen met die fiets ek is weer terug na std sprockets toe ooppad is dit beter in my boeke fiets is swaar op brandstof as jy hom oop ry so std sprockets is beter. Ja fiets is ligter as std pyp af is maar die fiets het krag verloor met decat uit. My 2c as jy decat moet jy n chip in sit want fuelling gaan verkeerd wees.
Pyp        R5000 op
Decat     R1500
Rapid bike of iets soort gelyk behalwe booster plug R10 000 op
Vir bietjie meer krag. Ek persoonlik dink die fiets kort meer krag std. Honda in my boeke gaan julle kliente verloor wat na anderfietse gaan kyk as hulle wil twee op ry en bo 160 gereeld ry.

Sal daarvan hou om tehoor wat die ander se wat dit gedoen het?

Wasn't able to understand  all of that.  I also changed my front sprocket to one tooth lower and after the bike was run in, I realised it was probably not necessary as the motor got stronger anyway.

All depends what bike is going to be used for open road or technical. I find on technical its better on clutch if gearing was done not so hard on clutch. But bike gets heavier on fuel ecspecially if you ride hard and on open road.

Guys sorry for this question can someone help pls  if there is a word spelled wrong how do you correc it F7 doesnt work also if you underline it and press right click doesnt throu out right spelling.

I have removed the Cat and put on a Dominator slip-on, it made a huge difference in sound, obviously..
There is a slight improvement on power and torque, but I have not done a ECU upgrade yet, still looking for the best option to go for... I can say that it needs a ECU upgrade now because, the Cat removal and free flowing exhaust now backfires quite a lot in higher gears!

Fuel consumption is also better so far, however that could also be because I ride mostly in lower revs and upshift through the gears quicker..

I didn't notice it being heavier on fuel as with the change in gearing, the bike thinks it is going further than it actually is.  My speedo seriously over reads and I would assume as a consequence, so does the odometer

Thanks, I do want to look at Power Commander, but I am very reluctant to have other people touch my harness... :patch:

Do you know of any reputable installers that do a proper job?
