Sputtering, Somewhat Rough-Idle Fix?
Another option, similar to the Power Commander fix, is to have the ECU re-flashed to the right specs (right for the rider & bike, that is). Ivan's Performance shop in South Carolina has what seems to be a solid firmware upgrade. Now there is not much amiss about my 2008 in flight, but I am going to have that re-flash done as soon as the mail can get there. It's a one-day turnaround, for now anyway, and I think it costs less than a hardware fix on the old ECU. Find JamesW on the FJR forums, for a better opinion. All I know is what I hear, and so far, so good.
Still, a tank of new non-ethanol gas and some SeaFoam will always be a good idea, every few months.

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
