Hey.. has anyone been through this exercise - (anyone from Adelaide even?) - I'm looking for the best garage to get referred to to perform the upgrade. It's best to upgrade the exhaust first before installing a new ECU apparently - anyone got any experience with this?

Hey mate... I am sending my ECU away next week to this place (see below link). Spoke with them and they have managed to get the USA version of the ECU map which produces about 87HP instead of the LAMS AU 47hp. ECU will be posted back with O2 sensor eliminator and increased diameter intake funnels... Pretty keen to see how it performs afterwards as the LAMS AU tune is pretty shit...

Cheer for the reply. I rekon I'll do the same thing. When you get the ECU back and get it installed, can you post up how it went and how the bike feels after? I was toying with the idea with upgrading the exhaust before the tune but it seems easier to just go for the US tune if it's another 40HP with a stock exhaust and just get used to that for a while.

Will do... I've read heaps of forums about exhaust upgrades and power commanders etc. but if the stock US version is good for 87hp I'll be happy with that for the moment. And to be honest the stock exhaust tucked under the frame, to me anyway, looks ok and most of the after market exhaust systems look a bit shit.

Yeah I agree - the stock exhaust looks good - apart from the tip but I'd rather my bike looks and sounds stock anyway if I'm going to change the ECU to keep it stealth and attract 'their' attention. Also - the guy from motorcycleworkshop said that you will only get a 2hp increase and the only real noticible difference is noise - the Acropovic system is what they stock for a CBR650F and that comes at $1,495.00. Not really worth it for 2hp.

Agreed! $1500 on some noise is pretty senseless. I saw on YouTube someone removed the muffler, cut of the skinny exhaust tip and refitted a larger tip. looked ok. Local muffler shop could probably help for less than a couple hundred $$. but trying to get the larger tip to line up with the outer cowl cover would be tricky... How about I'll go guinea pig on the ECU if you go guinea on chopping the muffler box... lol

Actually - that's a bloody good solution to get a more throaty exhaust sound, I might see if any of the local shops would take on that task (in 2 months when I get off my R-Date).

+1 Was thinking of doing this exact same thing, though I can't get mine done until another 4-5 weeks. Pls let us know how it turns out.
Cheers.
