    Is there a Re-Flash you can get for the ECU in the V7 Classic? Or is throttle response less of an issue for that bike? I'm asking because I had a Stelvio and thought the reflash was necessary to make that bike to run right at lower rpm. Now I'm getting a V7 and am curious to know whether they suffer from the same condition....

    The normal approach would be to wait to see whether there's a problem before you look for a solution.

    In other words, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.

    I think Guzzitech offers a reflash, as well as an "O2 Optimizer" that adjust the air=fuel ratio. There are also other alternatives. I made my own oxygen sensor optimizer, which was dirt cheap and helped the low-mid rpm range. There are a multitude of other adjustments, if you've got the cash and time.

    Kiwi's advice is good, run the bike for a while to see what needs to be tweaked.

    On our demonstrator bike we added Neptune stainless mufflers which sounded awesome and also a Memjet which allowed us to richen the mixture to suit. It ran very nicely but we never had time to re dyno the bike before a customer begged us to sell it to them. Seat of the pants it felt better but the sound of the pipes may have just given the illusion that it was.

    In any case it was lovely to ride and all customers that had a demo ride came back with a huge smile.

    Cheers

    Ben, welcome back. V7C eh? The V7 uses a 15RC ECU (with 02-sensor), so improvements are required if you think your Stelvio needed it.

    There are two real options in my book, one is a PC-V & 02-controller (I sell them of course), or I do offer an ECU re-flash as well ($250). Read up on the options here; https://www.guzzitech.com/forum/160/2686.html

    There are other ECU "foolers" which have proven to be problematic in short order.

    Feel free to contact me direct e-mail with any additional questions.
