"Flashing" your bike
« on: October 01, 2018, 10:17:49 am »
Hi dogs

Has anyone "flashed" their bike (removed all the software limitations required by EU standards)? What does it cost and could you notice any difference?

Apparently FIRE IT UP bike dealership in Fourways has someone who can do it.
Beer isn't the answer. It's the question. The answer, is Yes!

Coffee maker?

Widow maker:P
Was wondering too, but perhaps there'll be a calculator on the screen - rather useful with the current steep graph of fuel prices.
With some fancy programming we may see auto-burping after filling up, the loudness of course analogue to the quantity of fuel poured in.
It may be like those speaking weighing scales: " Yeah you rich snob, showing off again eh?" echoing loudly through the filling station after you filled up to the brim  ;)

Perhaps it is a function like slapping the bike on its ass and then it will stagger itself forward, like this...

Or, autoskipping Stop-signs like in this one...

All in the name of safety of course  8)

Wait TheBear, that's not the whole story, not very nice of you to tell us only half: it can but then you'll have to buy the optional dongle aptly named Karamell Stecker

Why is the sidestand on the wrong side?

I think that is an extra side stand, on the right of the bike, in case it leans that way when stopping.  If I look at its position I doubt that it is a side stand in the traditional form.
