Yes that would be a great idea, in the interest of time management.GTR27 wrote:I'm picking up a new 2015 SDR - was going to ask the dealer to load the akra map for me for the short (10 -15 min) ride home as I will have a de cat with austin racing GP3 / GP1R belly exit exhaust waiting at home for fitment (and dont want to make 2 trips lol).
Reckon they will do it? Surely it's just richer so will just eat more fuel on the way (on the very short ride) but be "safe" so to speak.
As long as after you install your exhaust, the very next time you start your bike after installation is complete, don't just ride it "around the block" go for a nice 30 minute minimum ride through all engine rpm ranges as possible and engine loads.
Unplugging the battery would not be necessary to reset the ECU because you would have only ridden the bike once with the Akra map and stock exhaust, so minimal adaptations data would be stored on your ride home, AND what is would quickly overwritten by a ride in conditions I mentioned above. The bike will continue to get better and better as you continue your break-in. Mile 1000 will seem like a completely different bike than mile 15.
Just be more patient than @Fry.
