I have a quick question, could a new dyno tuning/remapping possibly make my 2012 BMW S1000RR with Taylormade full exhaust and PCV have a soft spot in the 3500 – 6500 RPM range?
But also had both tires replaced at the same time, so I am thinking wheel sensor issue maybe.
It feels like a flat spot or like the clutch/computer isn’t transmitting the power through the to the rear wheel. But the more time I ride it, it is looking more like the computer is cutting out, which leads me to sensors even more.
At first I thought it was wheel slip, but it seems sluggish and cuts in and out based on throttle response on low end rapid acceleration and seems to settle in around 7500 – 8000 rpm if throttle change isn't erratic.
First thing I tried, was to retrieve the custom tune (professional done by a local dyno / race shop) to save it and reload the original Taylormade tuning 12-012-005 to see if that would make it go away if the map was way off.
After all that, no real success getting everything back to what it was before the custom tuning, so I figured I would check the web/blogs.
If anyone could let me know your thoughts, or if you experienced something similar, did the rev limiter software switch in the PCV fix the issue?
I would greatly appreciate any and all help or advice to where I should look.
Wish I left good enough alone now, the bike was an absolute beast before all this.
