Scuffed the new tires in and got to try out the flashed ECU (thanks Anthony!), she's a whole different machine now. Got @ 100 miles in, topped the tank off, and stuffed her back into the garage until Spring. :(
Though I've adapted very well to my stock bike I'm thinking about going ahead and getting flashed. Everything I've read tells me it's worth it and even though today was in the 70's this next week it's gonna be dropping. Most likely to be the last of the 70's.

EDIT, funky weather for the next week so I popped out the ECU and Anthony should have it Friday. :p

Got rid of the aggressive engine breaking in S mode (feels more like the 4cyl in-lines that I grew up with), increased response 1st-3rd gears (easy power-up wheelies in 2nd gear now!), smoother and stronger pulling from idle > 3500 RPM (I normally try to stay above 3000 to avoid that sluggish response when rolling on aggressively, no need for that anymore). Granted this is all based upon my SoP (seat of pants) dyno but I could not be happier....money well spent in my opinion.

Diff Fluid change this evening.

Fluid was pretty dark. (has 9085-miles on the bike) Previous owner said he did not change it. Not sure if the first owner ever did?

There was a slight amount of metal on the magnetic drain plug.

"Shaft" Drive! :p

This is what I used to put back in.

Only used this much till it was dribbling out of the fill-hole. I could do two more diff fluid changes with this one bottle!

I'm satisfied.......................Now I know for sure when the fluid was changed last!

Yeah only uses 200mls. I think a lot of riders change with every oil change.

Curious as to what you think of the 70s after you get to ride them a bit both on the pavement and whatever off the pavement riding you do.
I am considering these tires as I need new tires soon but I have read and heard mixed reviews of them.
I couldn't wait to get the TKC70s off my bike till selling the bike with them.

I have a riding buddy, that tried these tire, he said not good on gravel road, where there is small stone on top of hard gravel.
It feels like it is kind of "rolling" . Guess it is because of the middle with continues rubber..

getting ready to fit this.
Also very interested in the result, and what model (fully adjustable? rebound, preload and compression)

Installed my new Garmin 595 onto my existing mount. Hangs a little low (just like my 550 did)so may need to make something up to lift it a little so I can read the top line of the bike's dash.

Looking forward to trying out all the nifty features :)
