Austin Racing GP2R + Rapidbike Race + Quickshifter

Hi Guys

Took my 2011 to the guys at Austin Racing yesterday, firstly top blokes and great job. Had a GP2R full system fitted, rapidbike race module with ignition and fuelling adjustment and rapidbike quickshifter.

Not had much time on it yet but the bike seems pretty lively through the midrange, the noise is fantastic, louder at idle and excellent at the top end, not overbearing but you wont be sneaking up on people! The quickshifter that plugs into the module is night and day improvement over stock, just a gentle tap to upshift without the notchyness and delay of the stock unit.

Took some photos so you can how good it looks, i'll put some more up after i've cleaned the bike!

How much would you expect? Most of the curves I've seen give very little top end gain. The gains are in the midrange

It wasn't meant to sound aggressive. It was a genuine question. I had a pretty strong power curve to start with.

The fuelling is pretty much bang on according to the graph but the ignition timing is set very safe. There may be more to be had in the future but unless all bike are tested on the same dyno using graphs to compare is a waste of time.

Hopefully I'll get some more play time at the weekend but what time I've grabbed today it certainly feels more lively.

Looking good

We have seen bikes come up from 180 to 190 peak power but like Marcus said we were airing on the side of caution with the rapidbike as its pretty new tech to start playing with ignition without having an extra day on it to fully test things out.
This bike would easily hit 194 peak with time spent on it. That said, its not the point or the goal, its the midrange torque that we are trying to achieve the best gains from and it certainly shows that.
