REMUS ---CHIP?

Just got myself a new Remus system off of Ebay and have fitted it today. Sound great, if a bit loud!

Those of you in the know, do I need to Chip the FI system, and what sort of changes am I likely to experience..power increases etc.

No chip required, although some say a Techlusion unit gives a better fuel mixture.

Should be getting better midrange performance, and it should pull from waaaay down low. Not much, if anything, noticeable on the top end.

I have to disagree with you there. On my 1100, the addition of the BB power chip made a considerable difference, especially in the top end (+5000 rpm) and below 3000 rpm.
I had the pipe fitted for a few weeks before I added the chip so I had a good feel for how the engine was performing with just the pipe.
Cannot comment on the efficacity of a chip on the 1150 though,

Ahhh, but the question was whether or not he needed the chip, and the answer is no. :cool:
 
Just fitted a Remus revolution with a straight- through pipe to my 1100. I also have a K&N filter. Would this account for the slight hesitation at steady revs ?. This happens at between 2-3000 revs in 2nd/3/4th gear. It hesitates very slightly, almost like it's running out of fuel. then picks up again within a second or two.
Higher revs and when accelerating, it's fine with no probs. This makes ita bit nervy in traffic or leant over and I'm using the clutch more to compensate at slow speed.
It also pops and bangs on the over-run a little, which sounds ace, but I had a TLS which did this with a full system on and I took it to TTS, who said it was running lean, hence the 'popping' on the over-run.
Hall sensors ?. HT leads ?

Usually caused by air leaks where the can meets the pipe. As to the other problem, could it be the infamous surging?
 
I've bought a chip but not fitted it yet. I bought it from ebay in Germany for 60 euro. No idea what make it is, but it has TMS and a load of numbers on it. I'll fit it in the next week or so and see how I get on. Instructions are all in German, so if there are any German speakers about, I can scan it and post it on the forum.

I'm with Fergus on this.
Tha above sums up my experience exactly - only I have got an 1150.

try the following - assuming the exhaust system has now been sealed for air leaks and that injection synch is ok ,check the rubber inlet manifolds between the cylinder head & throttle bodies for leakage. If you can access a CO meter all the better. With the engine at operating temp check your CO reading, i usually set them at between 2 to 2.5 %. spray the maifolds with WD40 or similar & see if the reading richens up(usually left side is the main culprit) If there' leaking replace them both resiliconing them doesn't work -I've tried it. Also check the little rubber caps where you fit ur vac gauges - also prone to perishin

BMW recommend a CO reading of 1.5% at idle with the engine warmed up.
