    Done and done!

    GP Megs mufflers + ECU flash + Evap removal + SAS block

    Compared to stock, the Guzzi has a deep, throaty sound (GP Megs), more consistent pull across the entire rpm range until gear shift light comes on (ECU Flash), and once you complete SAS/Evap, it feels like the motor breathes more freely (the sound is more raw, the pull is stronger, and quicker response).

    Evap - by-pass the valve on the breather line (gas tank straight to evap canister), most of the vacuum line is removed, the intake manifold is blocked, and evap canister stays in place.

    I test rode it up the 154, gassed up, rode around town. No fuel spill, no problem at all, only the good stuff.

    Todd - many thanks for the brilliant fuel
    mapping and plug-and-play SAS kit and for making my bike fun to ride again.

    Yes... my only regret is having waited six months because the whole ECU reflash is pretty new to me and I’m afraid of screwing up my only daily driver.

    During that one hour test ride, I was smiling all the way as I squeezed the throttle. Wasn’t going very fast, but most fun!

    To those that have completed the flash, performed the EVAP and SAS removal and upgraded the exhaust, do you get a ton of popping on decel or throttle roll off?

    I just added the full 2:2 Guzzitech meg system along with the mods mentioned above and get tons of popping and gurgling. I LOVE it. It sounds so raw and agressive. I just ask if others experience this, because reading seems to indicate that most people don't prefer that sound and mention that the flash gets rid of those popping sounds.

    The bike feels excellent after the flash and mods. I highly suggest it to anyone reading this. Todd was super quick and easy to work with as well.

    I caution you on this, as it sounds like you may have an exhaust leak at the cylinder heads or similar. You should have very little or no closed throttle popping. If you like that, once you verify there is no leak, I am able to do this with the fuel map.

    How does one verify there are no leaks? I get a decal pop every now and then and just figured that was normal, even with full GT setup (2>1, map, SAS, evap removed).

    Depending on air temps, a pop or two is normal.
    Leaks can normally be detected by ear, or if bad enough, by hand or a match/lighter near the heads. If you are at all accustomed to this sound, another way to check is to use a vacuum hose. Hold one end close to your ear, not against it, and the other end around the head pipes at the cylinder heads. Sealed connections make no noise, leaks are obvious if only on one side. Use Google for more info.

    Hello,

    I cant seem to find on this site any before and after dynos of the flash. Can anybody point me in the correct direction? I purchased the SAS kit and it worked as advertised so I am considering the map as well. I would just like to see some data beyond testimonials. V7 III Thanks in advance!

    The only before-after dyno testing of the revised ECU map I did was with my butt and right wrist. My V7 III Racer was a pretty solid, normal performer for a "slightly over 50 hp" VTwin exactly as it came off the showroom floor. With the ECU map that Todd developed for me, it's a completely different story ... Loves to rev hard, pulls way over its rated specification, faster to start and warm up, easier to ride, more responsive everywhere.

    To me, the difference is obvious—in the positive direction—and the lack of dyno charts isn't an issue. That said, I think Todd has some dyno stuff somewhere on the site, but I've not looked for it.

    Long answer read the first posting in this thread.

    Short answer, it allows your V7 or V9 to run much, much, much better.

    Please bear with me here! I want to make sure I understand. I have a 2016 V7 Stone. If I understand correctly, all I need to do is buy the ECU Flash box and hook it up to my bike, with you helping me out by email, correct. Does my V7II have an evap can?

    Do your maps only work for the exhaust systems sold on the website?

    No, I have a rather large library of almost anything currently being produced.

    Thank you for your speedy reply!
    Okay perfect! The "system" I am talking about is essentially just two stubby mufflers. Basically almost a straight pipe or no mufflers type of system.

    I have a 2013 V7 Racer and just purchased it Agostini's for it. It will be installed. Quesitons I have: 1) is it necessary to update mapping? Pros / Cons? - Where can I do it in MIami (Does dealer update this kind of maps)?, and how much approx should I pay?

    Perhaps not "necessary" to correct the fueling after installing the new exhaust, but it will run better if you have it remapped.
    The dealer cannot do this, there is no better fuel map from any dealer.
    Todd has fueling mapping for sale in his store.
    You can send him your ECU and he remapps it, or he can sell you a widget that will load the new map into your ECU without having to send it off.
    I believe it runs $350 - $500 depending.
