    Where is the AF graph for the after?

    Is it still a roller coaster shape???

    Also notice it holds a LOT more thrust in top on the All Gears run, guessing the top end is a lot sharper in the real world.

    Dunno about the roller coaster bit.... he said he'd ironed it out... I do know it seems a LOT crisper when on the throttle though

    Just got my ECU back from Hilltop (round trip from Oz). All I can say is Holy sh1t!...what a transformation.

    My bike is a 2017 GSA with only 1000km on the clock. This is my 4th R1200 and from delivery last month I was really disappointed in the rough idle, stumbles and strange midrange flat spot between 5000-6000rpm. I turned to my trusty BoosterPlug solution, but that didn't help at all. After installing Remus headers I knew things would only get worse without correcting the AFR's.

    With the Hilltop flash, immediately after firing up my bike with the Hilltop flash I could hear how smoother she ran. None of that about to stall stumbling and rattling. I only took for a short ride, but feels far more eager across the entire rev range. Thanks Hilltop!... first impressions are very positive

    From what I've read, you don't have to wait until you've fitted a full system because your bike will notice the difference and adapt the fuelling accordingly

    My XR didn't. I had the full system on it, then Hilltopped, but once the full system was removed, the bike didn't relearn, and it ran like a dog.

    How long did you run it for after you changed back to the stock exhaust? I would expect it to readjust fairly quickly.

    The dealer I traded it in at did around 200 miles on it, before getting it remapped somewhere else. They weren't happy.

    Don't know, but when I went back in, their local remapper had sorted it. That may have just been an XR thing, as I don't recall any issues with any of the GS's I've had done there, come back to standard resale time.

    I'm there in a couple of weeks, so will have a chat with Geoff about it.
