  • Flat spot at 5-6k?

    I took the bike out this morning and did some nice twisty back country roads. On the way home I was "playing around" on some straights in first and second around 5500-6500 RPM. I would try to crack the throttle wide open but the thing would just bog. Normally I don't bring it up to that rpm and then crack it open so I don't know if it's always been like this or if it's just since I added the Two Bros. slip-ons. Is this what most guys refer to as a "flat spot"? It was quite strange, you can blast up past that range with plenty of power but if I hold it at that rpm and then open it I get nothing. Would a PCII or a Yosh remap fix it? I was told I wouldn't need to remap for just slip-ons.

        I ran slip-ons for 4 years without a re-map or a problem, but I have experienced exactly what you describe.

        Fit a TRE and the problem will be solved. Build one

            That's why this place is great. You ask a question and in less than five minutes I had an answer. Gotta love it.

            If I don't go the route of building one myself who has the cheapest/best unit? It seems like the prices for a TRE are all over the place.

              Jeff, JSD or something, he's got a switchable one cheap enough. I must book mark his page, but never fear someone will paste the link, or you could try a search.

                          I've never heard a TLR with yoshi's so I can't compare but I absolutely love the two bro's sound. Very nice low rumble. Plus they look cool and are less common. The only time I notice they are load is when I'm coming home late at night and I pull in the driveway. I usually kill the engine and coast to the garage where with the stock pipes I never had to worry about it. I would never go back though. I guess you could say I'm addicted to the sound of them.

                              You can get either a TRE with a switch or without. I'm not sure why you would want the switch, I have just the regular. If you are going to get one, go to Gixxer.com and order from jeff. Great quality and price. I think it is worth it but I still noticed more results from adjusting the TPS.
