whos had Ivans tune the longest

Wondering how long his tune has been out for the 1700? Who had it the longest? Any negatives over time? Has anyone checked there plugs or had there bike on a dyno with air/fuel readings? If so what did you learn??

I cant attest to it on my Vaquero yet but w/ my Stryker I had it for over 10k pulled the plugs 2 times and they looked perfect. I didn't have mine on the dyno, never felt the need but other Stryker owners did and they were greatly satisfied with the results.

I'm more curious how it effects gas mileage more than anything. Has anyone included that in their review?

I can't offer to much info on the vaquero as I only have 500 mIles on her. My stryker my average went for 30-32mpg's to 36-38mpgs and I rode the stryker pretty rough most of the times. My average on the vaquero is reading 40 with flash, and vance and hines. Hope this helps some

I have over 2000 miles since the re-flash. It was done in early April of this year.

This is from my post on another forum where the person asked if anyone had any regrets. I answered his questions that he had about his concerns.

No regrets at all!

I'm so happy with this re-flash that if the State of California were to go to annual inspections and mine wouldn't pass as is I would purchase a new or used stock ECU just to pass the test and install the re-flashed one after.

Here in Northern California I ride in weather from 40 to 100 and the bike warms up all the time. It does do a little variation on the RPM's at first but settles down to the 950 RPM very quickly.

I have not had any restarting problems and the engine does warm up to run correctly in the colder weather because the thermostat will stay closed so it does. I do enjoy the cooler running bike in the hot weather. I have not had any problems in the colder weather as far as how the engine runs.

I have not noticed any carbon buildup on the pipes so I don't think it is running rich especially since I average about 2-1/2 to 3 miles per gallon better after the re-flash.

My bike is totally stock except for the re-flash and RACNRAY's throttle mod so others may have a different outcome depending on their mods

Could that possibly be because you are enjoying the newfound performance too much like I did? My mpg tanked right after I got my ECU back but I have no illusions as to why.

Now that I have my right wrist under control again it has increased 3 to 4mpg from pre-flash ECU. Temps have dropped noticeably as well.

For what its worth, I Ivanized my bike with about 400 miles on it and it was bone stock. A couple of weeks later I added V&H Twin Slash Cut slip ons and a Thunder Round air kit. I checked plugs again last week and no sign of a lean condition. Plugs looked completely normal. I now have a little over 3500 miles on the re-flashed ECU and everything is still great. Still the best money I have spent on her.

Garry "gv550" (who will always be the winner of any "who's had something the longest" competition) just posted over on another forum that he's done more than 20,000km's on his flashed ECU now, and has absolutely no regrets.

Glad everyone is happy who has done this. I think I am going to wait a year and see if the results are still the same. I am just paranoid that way I guess.
