Curious... Where did you get this info? I spoke to them (FT ECU) about two weeks ago and they wouldn’t give ANY info as they don’t want anyone getting their hopes up. In all the vendors I have personally talked to, it sounds like they can get into the ECU to keep the changes or get to a dead end road, somehow. Once again, assumptions because of the limited info they are giving. Not calling you out, just hearing different things. I ended up putting a PC V and dyno tuned because the decat system was making the bike cut out like Motonosity in his video. Now I get the PC check engine light every now and then.. I’m ready to have this damn thing flashed like everyone else.FT won't have it till 2021, and don't have your hopes up. If you want to uncork 2020+ R1, go race kit route.
I heard Yamaha used a different ecu than what was in the ‘19 and earlier.It’s pretty lame to have bought this bike and still hung with this bs of no flash available or thinking of dropping $2k to get a harness and ecu to do a proper tune. Like what is the difference in the ‘19 vs ‘20 besides euro 5 emission?
I’m not saying it gave hope, you actually even stated, “don’t have your hopes up”. Haha What I’m getting at is, did they specifically state it would not be until next year? When I spoke to them, they would not give any timeline at all and then others within the forum have stated they heard the timeline is potentially November.. A lot of people saying different things and I’ve talked to some of the same vendors but I don’t have connections to get any inside info. I feel like with sporting events opening back up and going into 2021 racing season, I’d hope that they push to have this ECU cracked/flashable for us prior to spring.The info I got does not give any hope, it's from FT and other companies in EU. No one has cracked the ECU, all hope for 2021.
Since the crystal ball isn’t telling us anything about the ECU flash.... How do you like the GSXR compared to the R1?Yes, they said not until 2021. Until we actually see a flash, it's all speculation. Either keep and ride the bike stock, or go GYTR route. Some go with piggyback systems, but not the direction I would go in. All of the restrictions are in the ECU.
Or do like me, and switch to a GSXR 2020.
I think Chuck Graves (Graves Motorsports) still races R1’sI'm picking up the GSXR this weekend, only sat on one, did not ride one. Right away it felt narrower than R1, better ergos for me. My tuner said with race harness/ecu, superstock engine, GSXR makes 190-195HP to the wheel, most linear power of all liter bikes, weighs 370lbs in race trim without fuel. All of the racers I talked to in expert think it's a well balanced bike.
Only factory teams (Attacks in US) that know how to tune the 2020 R1, even if you put race harness/ecu on 2020 R1, no shop would really know how to dial it in. Because no one has the data, only race teams do.
