I vote yes, but not for me. For my fellow riders.

well he did it for the honda car ecus, so i dont think it would be hard at all for the bikes. he would flash the ECU, and also add in a USB connection to connect to the ECU. i think you read it wrong

its fuel, ignition timing and everything.

Nate

ill go ahead and make tires that last 100,000 miles and grip like R compound race slicks while im at it

Well, hell, I'm interested. Market competition is always a good thing for us consumers. Best of luck to you and your buddy, bro. :dblthumb

thats what i figured as well. since dynojet has the market on lock down, a little competition might help it drop prices and/or make them update it with new features, like the ones Neptune will have

One of the things I like about bikes, though this is changing, is the direct connection between rider and machine. Unlike a car there is no traction control, abs, auto trans.......
I don't like the trend in cars to have a cpu keeping you on the road rather than driver skill. I don't like flappy paddle /auto transmissions. I'd take a F40 over a Enzo any day. And as such would like to see bike control all be down to the rider.

+1 Yeah, too much computer control and not enough rider control. Oh, oh, I can't do it anymore, just let the computer do it for me. Some people can't even wipe their own ass, let alone drive properly. Not a good trend for the people.

i dont think you guys are understanding the 2 step thing. its just an option. if you dont want it, you dont have to click the box that says so.

thats the only "computer control" that is available. (that i know of)

you do realize that rev limiters are computer controls, gauge clusters are computer controlled, etc

other than that... it adjusts fuel and ignition and what not
