  1. I understand what you mean. I offer some items that are 3d printed and I have been asked if I offer the file for sale so they can print their own. The answer of course is no. Ivan may have his flash protected in some other way, it's his software so he would be the one to ask. When I mentioned licensing, I simply meant that the flash is written to the specific serial # of the ecu and can't be copied to others. I might have used the wrong terminology but I think we're on the same page. One of the reasons I chose is because I don't want to be locked into using the same tuner or having to buy a new ecu so I could use another tuner. I've had tuners in the past that did a poor job on Power Commander tunes, I would have hated to be "locked" into using them. I'm sure there are other good tuners, but I've always had good results with Ivan.
  2. Ivan has his own software which is one of the reasons I chose to use his service. He does not password protect the ECU when flashed. I've been told other tuners usually use password protection for licensing reasons from Flashtune, Woolich, etc.
  3. My KTM has a Rekluse so I can see where the up/down would be nice at times but mostly for off road rides. I might ask Ivan about it. It feels to me that the qs works a little smoother with Ivan's ecu flash or maybe it's just the "placebo effect" ?
  4. I haven't tried to downshift with the quick shifter and I don't see a need for it... just my opinion. You could ask Ivan about it.
  5. Sorry if this has been covered already... All posts I found for 15t front sprocket were for FJ-09's. The new Tracers have a longer swingarm than the FJ (2.4" or 6cm longer). I have ridden a '16 model FJ09 and the front wheel would float up with a little effort on the throttle, my new Tracer seems more tame in comparison and I'm certain the longer swingarm plays a big part in that result. I was wondering if anyone has switched the front sprocket from the factory 16t to a 15t ? I've went one tooth down in the front on bikes in the past and the result usually put a big stupid grin above my chin. Keep the rubber side down, Dan
  6. The ECU flash from Ivan's Performance did not disappoint! I re-installed my ECU this weekend and although I didn't get to ride as much as planned I did get a few hundred miles in. I paid close attention to how the bike performed at all speeds and functions as best as I could before I got the ECU flash and then did the same after the ECU flash. I did not do any top speed tests or run each gear to redline or anything of that nature but I did ride aggressively at times, though I wasn't trying to outrun any MotoGP racers. Here are my observations... The bike feels smoother now in all rpm ranges, noticeably smoother. If you think you're happy with the bike as it is from the showroom don't ride one that has Ivan's flash, it will change your opinion. I can easily stroll through low speed areas (25-35 mph) without the bike feeling like it is searching for the correct fueling. Before the ECU flash the bike ran almost like it had bad gas when trying to maintain a steady low speed (2nd or 3rd gear in school zones, downtown areas, etc). You may not notice this much with the stock exhaust, but with a aftermarket pipe you will hear and feel this much more. The throttle cut is no longer an issue. I tried like hell to feel a throttle jerk and I failed miserably (yeah!) Normally my hands get numb after about 30-45 minutes, I rode 1.5 hours straight with no issues. Cruise control now works in every gear which is nice when cruising through state parks and other long stretches of low speed areas. (oem settings for cruise only work in 4th, 5th and 6th gear) I did not try using cruise control over 100 mph yet, but I'm sure it would work fine. Did someone say Autobahn?? Other than the ECU flash, the only other engine/performance mod I have done is a full exhaust. I rode with the baffle/db killer installed, have not ridden with it removed yet (very loud). I will probably try it soon just to see if there's any noticeable differences. I highly recommend Ivan's ECU flash. I believe he is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable tuners available. I was willing to pay the extra $ for his services. I have nothing against other tuners, I just have no experience with them and don't know how knowledgeable they are . Ivan has been around a while and he has never steered me wrong. This was not my first time purchasing from Ivan and I doubt it's the last time. I have never met the guy in person but he was very polite and answered all my questions and concerns. I hope this is helpful, feel free to ask questions and keep the rubber side down, Dan

  8. I had this same problem. I picked up an extra 10mm deep socket from Home Depot for $2 and turned it down on my lathe. Worked great.
  9. I will be picking it up tomorrow at my local FedEx hub. Due to the flooding in my area, I'm not sure that FedEx would deliver to me. I should have it back on the bike tomorrow afternoon and do some road testing this weekend. I will do a post with my thoughts soon after.
  10. Yes it is a GT. I spoke with Ivan and it is ready. I should have mine back by Friday.
  11. 4th, 5th and 6th gear only low - 50kmh (31mph) high - 160kmh (100mph)
  12. Hello everyone, I've had my 900GT for about a month now. Here are my mods so far... Puig short windscreen - less turbulence but sill noisy around my helmet Proton 500 led turn signals from High Speed Tech - VERY bright!, love 'em. Installed on front and rear. Wire was too short on rear so I used a y-splitter from Custom LED to make up the difference. I could have spliced in some wire but I like the oem plugnplay convenience. R&G fender elminator (tail tidy) - nicely made but I wish Vagabond made one for this bike Black Widow 300mm oval exhaust, full system - sounds great with or without db killer. a little too loud (imo) with db killer out. Works with centerstand in place. T-Rex racing radiator guard - works fine Ram ball mount on handlebar clamp Fuel tank mount for SW Motech Ion tank bags Brake light flasher/modulator from Custom LED - works great LED flasher relay from Custom LED - works great Removed the "Tracer" logo R&G footstand enlarger - works great, use them on my last 3 bikes, prevent sinking into hot pavement or soft ground ECU flash in progress - mailed it in to Ivan's performance, should have it back in a day or two. Morimoto Pindicators running light/turn signals - to be added very soon, will use y-splitters and custom 3d printed mounts to place them on the forks. These little guys are bright. That's it for now. Will hopefully find a better solution for the windscreen, I am currently working on my own mod so I'll see how this goes. Might try a Seat Concepts seat once it is available, or maybe another brand. Thanks and keep the rubber side down, Dan
  13. Just sent my ECU to Ivan for his flash. Will update with results in a few days.
  14. My ECU for my 2019 GT is on it's way to Ivan's Performance. I should have it back later this week and I will update this post with my opinion of the results. Along with the "normal" ECU changes, I'm having the cruise control limitations removed (will be able to set cruise at any speed and in any gear)
