Did you tell him about your issues and let him attempt to fix it before giving up? I sent mine back after a week of riding, with some tweaks I wanted him to work on, and it came back perfect after that. Just took a week of downtime.

So...should I send the unit away and wait or buy my own flash unit?
If I buy it and flash at least one more ECU I have started to make a profit.
Interested to hear your thought and opinions.
Don"t quote me but i think you have to buy a licence for every ECU that you flash other than your own.

I don't know as I fitted a second ecu that had Ivan's flash, I did not have my vc ecu modified by another tuner.

I would rather leave it to the experts who have the experience and know how and also have access to info and maps from countless dyno runs on similiar modded machines. So I would send it out. I don't think you can go wrong with either Vcyclenut or Ivan. If you do decide to go about it on your own please post back with results as I would be very curious to hear how it went.
Sounds like it.
I have the PCV and air filter coming so I may end up pulling the ECU and sending it out. Might as well do the fuel line as well.
Yosh will be ordered after I return from vacay.
May send the ECU out before I leave so I don't lose much road time.
If I end up buying the unit I will most definitely report back.

Good information.
To clarify, I get one license with the purchase for my bike and I have to buy additional licenses for every bike I would flash? Any idea how much a license is?

I just had my ECU flashed at bayside performance in Vancouver a few weeks ago, and couldn't be happier. I originally thought about buying the kit and doing it myself but decided not to. They charge $250 CAD, just a cheap or cheaper than sending it to the states. I was out there on a bike trip and stopped by Bayside to have it done. Kevin (the owner) is very knowledgeable, I talked to him as he was flashing my ECU and he patiently answered all my questions. I personally hate sending things to the states, more times that not I have to pay duties or taxes on top of the shipping before I can get the package.

And your supporting a Canadian business for the exact same service your going to receive in the states for less money, a no brainier as far as I am concerned.

As long as that orange orangutan is running the US, I am going to avoid giving them any of my business.

I'm all about supporting Canadian businesses but in this case I'm doubtful anyone has spent as much time on the 2nd gen fz1 (even before his flash) as Ivan.

I am not doubting that, I guess its up to the OP what he wants and how much he is willing to spend.

Just giving him another option

When you buy the kit, one license is included. Its $100 US per license after that.

giddyup, you covinced yet?

You cant go wrong. Reconsider buying the license and tinkering with the maps. Ivan has done all the work necessary, just do it.

I believe they all use the same software, Flashtune, so they can all do the same things.

You can download the software for free if you want to see how it works.

UPDATE
So I never got around to pulling the ECU last summer and have spent all my spare time recently working on the euro trash.

The FZ1 went under the knife last night while enjoying a few Guinness pints.
She is in recovery but it doing quite well.

Sending the ECU to Ivan next week for a flash.

Anything else I should be doing while I have her open?
Fuel line?
Velocity stacks?
AIS removal/block off plates?
Airbox mod? Lars or Ivans?
