I haven't yet. I like the 36mph I'm getting. Still, seems like a good idea to improve performance.

I'm getting 42 mpg (actual) after my 3rd update on Ivan's flash. Bike runs better than it ever has and well worth the cost and down time.

Yes... Everyone is. Those of us who have had our bikes since before Ivan, and used to use a fuel controller, will all tell you that there's no comparison - the flash is waaaay better.

Oops. I get 46 not 36 now. May flash it with new tires in 2000 miles, about 2 months from now.

Why do you have to flash it so many times?

For the 1700's he has done two updates and they are free. You just pay for shipping. Ivan owns a 1700 so he has been refining the tune to make it even better than the first one out.

Did the flash at the 2000 mile mark on my 2016 otherwise bone stock Voyager. Best single upgrade I will ever do. Bike just turned 10K miles....I consistantly get 40 to 45 mpg on the highway, much more efficient use of OD, no backfire, instant power and bike runs cooler. And I had warranty work done at the 3500 mile mark (radiator fan broke) and no issues getting it repaired at my dealer.

In case you have not seen this, it gives a pretty good rundown of what the flash does. $350 plus shipping. Usually 1 day turnaround once Ivan gets your ECU. The ECU is very easy to take out and reinstall....there are some Youtube videos on it you can find. If you have the O2 Sensor you have to disconnect it. Ivan's instructions not so clear on that....I had to call him. Basically you have to take off the 2 plastic panels on the front brake lever side of the bike under the drivers seat. There is a plastic connector there that you take apart...cover both ends with duct tape and zip tie them so they don't move around. Good luck! Ivan's Performance Products
