Im not one to brag, but...

So some of you know my winter mod list included GP mids and cans from danmoto.

Having been told directly from danmoto to NOT dyno these as the heat and pressure can damage the carbon fiber. I was lacking a good outlet for a proper tune

Well this forum and its members stepped up! A couple guys here emailed me their custom tunes so i could try them out with the danmoto's

I put on about 200 miles sunday and WOW I noticed right away how crisp the throttle response was. The torque curve had also changed and is so buttery smooth i could mistake it for an inline...

After a 50 mile blast, both of my buddies (1198 and 999) commented that "that thing is completely different. The exhaust note and its demeanor has completely changed" On several occasions we would pass slower riders, and when they would catch up to us they would always comment about the RC and how wicked it sounded

I imagine having only had this thing for a couple years it has never been properly mapped. I can say without a doubt its running better than ever before

Yes...do tell. Where they all GP maps, or did a different one work?

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Well....it was yours! I wasnt sure if you wanted it out there, because now your gonna get 100 pms asking for it...

Only picture i took...doing my part to rid the world

I had two. One had been posted in a lady bird map thread. I think its bmiller123 custom tune for his ladybirds, but dont quote me.
Both of them are for gp cans, but probably the 60mm ladybird mid.
The danmotos are similar cans, but 51mm mids.
The one i went with was madbuyers. ladybird, flapper stock a/f i think...
Its a brute!!

That's okay...glad it works for you.

Use a little silicone spray on that lid, the bugs will just wipe off.

It does run like a raped ape with that map. It came in a 129.5 hp...not bad.

In short, yes. Keep in mind the map isn't a perfect fit, but works well based on the design of the GP cans by Danmoto.

I have Ladybirds, and even the map needs to be adjusted for my bike based off altitude (and maybe weight since I'm only half of a MB )

You can go PCIII or PCV.

That is a very fitting analogy! It just felt angry to me...pulled harder and longer, and would consistently lift the wheel when i least expected

And i cant be sure because i didnt keep track, but i think my fuel consumption is down too

You should bottle that map and sell it
