With the stock pipes you should use map M225-001.djm or the stock map. Pipes may be louder now but the catalytic convert 's are still there And they block the air flow.

You need to change the map to the stock map, the map you are using is for after market pipes. The stock pipes will not flow enough for the settings in the advanced map.

The advanced map settings allows you to set different fuel mixtures for each cylinder, some bikes with advanced ECU units can take advantage of the function. Some Race Bikes can set all 4 cylinders at different settings.

Not so sure for our bike.

Anyway the map you are talking about is WAAAYYY to rich for your current setup.

Your best option would be to seach your area for someone that has a Dyno machine that can build you a map just for your bike's setup, it may cost up to $300+ but in the end it's better than any map your gonna download for free.

Yup until you get the pipes changed there is not a great amount of air flow. However, the stock map is not the greatest, if you have the PC 3, pop the baby on and run the stock pipe with aftermarket air map, which is M225-001.djm. Expect some Fuel Millage Loss and try to get the grin off before entering buildings.

OK now, we have a small rule that PICTURES are REQUIRED from all new Members.
