Regarding re-mapping and performance increases and more power and more efficiency...
According to the Yamaha website my new to me FJR/Yoshimura cans provide:
22.85% Weight Reduction and Improved Performance!
Since I am already burning through rear tires much faster than I want I have had to find some way to cut back on all this newly discovered power. I have decided to stuff old rags inside the air intake to limit the air flow. This helps keep the front tire on the ground and keep the rubber on the rear tire. I could just rely on my right wrist and the traction control or even stay in Touring Mode but I prefer using the rags. That way I can tell folks that I always keep it in Sport Mode, that lets them know that I am Awesome. Since I will be in Alabama this weekend I can tell folks that the rags are my version of Nascar Restrictor Plate Racing.
It is Very Important to me that my 640+ pound FJR with roughly 125 HP at the rear wheel might get a 0.037264 % increase in HorsePower from these mufflers. That coupled with the HUGE 22.85% weight reduction will really make a difference on my next ride.
Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.
