When I got he akrapovic system put in it was running really rich and backfiring like crazy for the first 100km or so.
I think you should be ok, since the ecu will eventually compensate especially if you have the o2 sensors still in.
Heading up to Ebisu CCT on Friday btw.
Hey Piper , I final completed the install. It wasn`t so tough but help was needed after all. The otughest part was the damn radiator bracket lol. I almost gave up at that point. I have to disconnect the radiator cable on the right side, in order to get to the headers.
I realized the whenever I`m warming up the bike the headers get really red hot! Glowing red! I was kinda worried but after I ride it starts to cool down I think. Did you experience this when you had your pipes installed the first time around?
Thanks a lot for the info. I will try to fit the exhaust next monday. I'm gathering the tools. I am thinking about getting a GS-911 , I think thats what BMW uses to erase errors and other stuff. It might come in handy because I really don't want to pay them 3000yen.
Its kinda pricey though.
Does your pc5 map work with the Yoshi exhaust systems too?
If you leave the o2 sensors in the bike will remap ok.
Probably take a 100kms or so.
If you put a PC on it you'll need to take the o2 sensors off. I have a great PC map btw if you ever need one.
Thinking about going to Ebisu on the 30th but will decide next Mon or Tue. Might have no rear tyre left after Fuji on Sunday.
Also would rent a van to go. Would be too far for me to want to ride the bike.
Your first time on Fuji you should do an organized track day. Like a Bridgestone day etc. Its a good way to get a feel for it.
Yea , I have the 2012 model, just use it mostly for touring but I want to ride Fuji soon. I am going to try and get a friend help me with the install but I wont use a power commander just yet. I heard the bike will remap itself after a while. Do you think I need the Power Commander asap?
I will ignore the service meter for now even though its kinda annoying. I will do the oil change myself too since it's not that hard. The Motörrad dealer price is too high for me.
Another shop was charging me 2万円 just to install the full system. I thinks thats a not too much to spend for a 2-3hrs job.
Another friend of mine told me about that Ebisu track day. Its kinda way up in Fukushima. Will you be going there?
Hi! I never bring the bike to BMW for servicing. Have my local bike shop do the oil and tyre changes, and do everything else myself.
Only bring it BMW to get the service reminder reset. They still charge about 3000 yen just for that..
You have a 2012 bike now right? I'm just at 11,000kms now after 2 years of riding!
The full system install is not so hard but you need the right tools. BMW use a bunch of wierd torx ( look at where the headers are attached to the engine ). Other than that it helps to have someone to help you since its hard to get all the parts to fit on just by yourself :-)
I've been out a couple of times to Fuji this year and will be there on the 25th as well.
Ever heard of Ebisu circuit? There is an all day track session on the 30th for 1.5 man yen. Bit of a trip though.
hey Piper, how are you doing? I finally bought the full system for my bike. I am thinking about installing it my self though. I have the instructions so it doesnt seem that hard.
I bought the Full Yoshimura r-77 SS. Maybe I can fit the Akra long or short end canister on it too right?
I think I have the tools and I might borrow some space somewhere and do it.
btw, I`m at 12,000km on my meter now. Thats mostly due to touring and street riding. But I am ready to do some track days with once my Yoshi pipe gets installed. Did you take your bike to BMW for servicing? I heard they charge a lot of money for just changing a few parts that anyone can do.
I am thinking about ignoring the service check and do my own repairs.
