Now as a public apology to ECUnleashed... I'm sorry. I've been boobing about their lack of communication
and the fact I had not heard anything on my ECU sent in 2 weeks ago. I came home from work today
and it was on my porch. I feel like a shit heel for complaining about a free upgrade.

Now for the good stuff, WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! I really liked the original reflash. As I've always said
not a night and day OMG difference just a very nice combination of perfect feeling jetting and a modest
performance increase. This new reflash reminds me of what the Europeans claimed when they had the
reflash done. Very noticeable performance jump! Tour mode and Sport mode finally have a reason to exist.
I've never used the Tour mode and now can see a reason to. It was a short test around the neighborhood
and I never got above 4th gear. I can tell you I was grinning a lot. I need to do an extended test. It almost felt
like it gave up a little under 3K above 3k better be paying attention. I've removed the clutch mod. No stall or hiccup.

Still grinning typing this.

I know there have been some skeptics and stuck to how happy they are with how their stock bike runs.
All I can say is you don't have a clue what it's capable of with just a simple ECU tweaking.

I know I've said this class of bike isn't about raw performance or high horsepower, buuuutttt it is fun to
find out what untapped potential is sitting under you. Now where is that GS that gave me an ass whooping?
Told ya.

Glad you got the bugger back and glad the stress has been removed.

Hope you can kick the GSs butt, and ALSO outlast him to the next fillup!

Looks like something Thanga would come up with to haul his trailer around better.

I wouldn't say the original reflash was crap. It improved the fueling got rid of the low speed stall
and made the bike run great. I have always recommended it. I do need to go put some more time
and some off road on the gen 2 reflash. My initial short run around the neighborhood impression was
a performance jump (the original also had a performance jump) so between the two the bike has
really come alive.

Maybe it is someone who still wants to ride the S10 but is physically unable to balance a motorcycle? It looks better than a Harley or Goldwing rear-wheel trike...

So what exactly are you saying about T mode. Personally I miss it but that is mainly due to riding 2 up all the time. It smoothes it all out and stops helmet bashing in town. Oh and it helps riding behind American automatic cars that pull away from lights like a snail on vacation.
(In Europe we would be at the front of the lights having driven past everyone !!)

This is gonna give Pluric the hump. I sent ECUnleashed an email and got a reply a few hours later

I told them of my circumstances, (no fixed abode and constantly needing the bike,) and they told me to take it to a dealer for the upgrade.
I like special treatment.


Anyway, I am going to wait till I have been to Alaska and following the advice above, see if AF-1 will do it for me.

I'm saying there is a bigger difference between them. I never had much use for the T mode
before. Now I can see me using it for the exact reasons you mention. I just went and tried my bike
again playing between the modes, not so subtle anymore. S mode should be H for Hooligan.

Everything gives me the hump. A long time ago it would have been I'd hump anything.

Good news. You won't be sorry. AF-1 is great to work with and I predict you will be happy with the Gen 2 re-flash.

I thought that UCUnleashed was ingnoring pluric because he is pluric.

You're lucky I'm in a very good mood today. The gen 2 update is to blame.
Otherwise I would be forced to send a barrage of PMs to GB regarding the
bullying I've been forced to endure by you.
