tuning and letting the beast roar!
« on: September 25, 2012, 08:46:47 AM »
anyone thinking about it?

at this time i'm wondering about the availabilty of a catless titanium full exhaust system (much lighter and full flow) and also would like to learn about engine tuning to the pipe and mapping etc

don't know much about either...

what you know? what you thinkin?

Start mucking about with headers and you're also into mapping territory. So thats a power commander and dyno session for a custom map.

So full pipes, Power commander, dyno time, custom map.  £1500 minimum with no guarantee of meaningful results. In fact you may well gain at the top end and loose the grunt at the bottom.

Don't think the CT is that type of bike really. You may end up with a different power delivery but would it be better ?

I didn't feel i would need more power or such at any moment so far. The power curve from buttom to top seems just to be very allright for me.... . However, if there is anything interesting .. why not discuss it. There may be some simple power commander changings ... which could even improve things? Or something like a "setup" to save on fuel when on long distance drives ... only to change into a sport mode again hitting on a "switch"  :305:  ..

But i am not an expert ... at all  :021:
