These guys seem to have more experience with cars but definitely intriguing.

You know what, they are located not even 15 mins from me, I can ask around locally and go check them out and report back if you'd like?

Also, from my experience with flashing (correct me if I'm wrong) but aren't there 3 computer on the SD? They all need to be updated so they communicate properly. I had my bike updated when the exhaust was installed and the dealer only updated one, bike ran like shit. I took it to a buddy of mine, Josh Herrin's crew chief, and he squared it away for me. Runs like a raped ape now. I can also get his opinion on the company too.

Seems a little scary to screw with all those computer by a company that just started doing motorcycles. All they have are the SD, Diavel and S1000RR flash right now

They do seem to do good work on cars so I'm open to it but I'll be waiting for more info.

It annoys me to no end that these manufacturers are building bikes with all this power and then restricting them. Why not just make a lighter bike with less cc's and not restrict them? Make no F***** sense to me.

Well given that they are so close to me, I will definitely go by and check them out. I will post about it when I do, hopefully next week sometime.

I'm interested to hear what you find out. I've been watching that site for a bit now, even emailed them and they said it's basically been ready for sometime but they hadn't got around to an official release announcement.

There's some fishy wishy possibly going on here.
That is a residential address.
It is also known as
Vishnu Performance Systems
316 South Eagle Nest Lane
Danville, CA 94506

"Fake it, 'til you make it", comes immediately to mind.

Could be some guy doing it out of his garage. Now that is scary, he could brick your new SD and there's nothing you could to about it.

Exactly what I thought, which is why I posted the information.

This is the man (I'm pretty sure). He posts a lot in a couple of 86 groups I'm in (BRZ/FR-S/GT-86). He has an open flash tablet for that platform.

Someone bother him and get more info :)

Just sent him a friend request.
You do want him "bothered", right?

My mechanic is pretty skeptical and hasn't heard of him. My guy is also the crew chief for a ranked AMA rider. I haven't been able to go by that place yet, I was sent away for work.

Either way we should find out his story, that's a lot of money to be charging for not a whole lot of credibility, at this point anyway.

Im curious to know how exactly did this person make your Superduke run like a raped ape? do you have a PCV? even with the KTM tablet access you cant change fueling etc so how the heck would he have made it run better?

Dude, the dealership only updated one computer, so it ran like crap. My mechanic updated all with the correct map and it ran way, way better. This was MY opinion comparing one dealership service department that screwed up compared to how it ran after it was updated correctly.

That's how...

I'm just not sure a raped ape would be running anywhere fast...

Im asking how exactly they updated it? there has only been so many people / companies around the world that have been able to have access to the ECU, my question was HOW did they access the ECU, what program & equipment? what were the dyno results? or did they just magically update it without a dyno?
Sorry you havent explained anything
