Ivan's Gen III flash is done

I suspect he'll alienate the majority of potentials by requiring higher octane. That being said, he claims to fix a lot of the numbness in the throttle I very much dislike.

Yup! Those charts have me convinced!
Yamaha did an excellent job!

Just think with loud pipes, a dirt-passing air filter, more expensive fuel, and $350 I can go from 130 HP to 140 HP!

If 7% mattered then I would have bought an FJR1500. Or a Kawasaki ZX-14R.

Well, if I could get 50 mpg, less vibration, less jerkiness, cooler running, I would find a way to buy the dang thing and put the 89 octane in it. I am eagerly awaiting the Gen. 2 one to come out and for several of you to buy it and test it out. LOL

Would be interesting to hear the opinion of someone who gets this tune for Gen III.

I'm curious how many oz of 100 octane booster would be needed to raise 87 to 89?

I expected that, and plenty more from others. There's a lot more to it that HP, but I guess some of us are more in tune with what the bike is doing than others.

I get 50 MPG.
Guess it is cooler and less vibration, no other FJR to compare to.
Is certainly not jerky. Certainly not like an early FI BMW.
On 87 octane.

The K&N did not add any HP. There are many applications where the OE filter is easier to tune or just makes more power.

This proves(if Ivan is proof of anything) what has been stated for many years. There is no power corked in the FJR. It could drive better for sure and that alone might justify the $350.

I went back to the stock air filter, after many years with a K n N. Just got tired of washing the dang thing out and reoiling it. Just seemed easier to buy a filter and stick it in there now and then. So unlike me to spend money. LOL {did I mention I ran out of K n N filter oil and cleaning fluid and it was cheaper to buy a stock filter in the "short run"}

General rule of thumb: you have to wash and re-oil a K&N 5 times to break even, assuming your time and labor is not worth anything.

HiFloFiltro air filter $19.
K&N air filter, $68, cleaning kit $15.

If the cleaning kit can service the filter 4 times then K&N costs less than (5) HiFloFiltro. Assuming same service interval I got 30,000 out of my original filter. Changed it out of boredom, didn't really need it. But had I bought a K&N I wouldn't break even until 180,000 miles.
