    Well I FINALLY own a Griso! I picked up a BRAND new 2015 (had 7 miles on the clock) Griso 1200 8v SE on saturday the 9th. I have about 400 on the clock now. My question(s) are I want to do an exhaust/fueling upgrade but need to know what do you think is best bang for the buck ease of install AND long lasting? I was debating getting a gt pipe and one of Todds tunes? I am a semi Moto guzzi newbie (had a 2008 breva 750 I traded) what I am tryong to ask is what are your thought on the gt pipesand which tune should I go for seeing as there are quiet a few to choose. I am not really after monster power gains a little is fine as this bike to me is a monster compared to what I have ridden. I just want reliability and to clean up what I have been told/heard/read about Guzzis poor/unclean tuning.

    I have Todds right side exit pipe (my favorite Griso pipe as it works best with the CARC) and his full monty re-flash/PCV/Autotune/Open Airbox Lid. Works great. You could probably be almost as happy with just his re-flash. The cheap options like the O2 sensor modiffiers are not a good option unless you are really strapped for cash. If money is that tight you probably did not buy a brand new Guzzi.
    The main thing you are looking for is not MORE power but BETTER POWER DELIVERY.

    Congrats on the Griso. You can't go wrong with Todd's set up.

    Todd's ecu flash combined with the Power Commander V and an afternoon on a dyno @ a tuning specialist is without doubt the best money spend on my 8V!
    Driveabillity, smoother gear shifting and increased power and torque made it a better and more fun to drive bike. My personal favorite exhaust is a Quat-D.
