Ooops. I knew I was screwing something up. I like my highway legs so probably won't ever swap. Hence not paying much attention to the process.

Any chance you could post a link to where you got your 14T from please.
I reckon I will go this route as well . Cheers

Been doing a bit of reading about the Rapidbike Evo as it sounds like the way I need to go.However I came across the following disclaimer below. I am just wondering if this would also be applicable to other areas of the world too. The fuel here in Vietnam is not the best , so may be an issue. I guess I will just have to contact them direct and ask the question :

ATTENTION: We do not ship to Brazil nor sell any products to customers who will operating their motorcycles in Brazil. This caution is due to different spec fuel that is being used in the country. Rapid Bike EVO and Racing module are programmed to be used in USA and will not effectively work in Brazil. For more info please contact your local distributor.

most probably this is because of widley use of E85 (85% alcohol, 15% gas) or pure alcohol in brazil.

Wow, ok , I didn't realize that's what they used over there. So I can understand the issue then better now. So Probably where I am should be ok then.
Thanks for the info Ferdi

So you put E85 in your bike? This usually requires a robust fuel system designed for the higher alcohol content.

I bought my Evo on eBay from an Italian vendor. It was such a good price that I ran the serial number through RB to be sure it was legit. The US vendor - and there is only one - does not like US riders purchasing elsewhere and installing themselves. If you have a problem you'll be directed to him and he will give you a lot of attitude before he actually helps.

It will certainly help. The ecu update was specifically for surging. That, coupled with the engine breaking in (about 6k miles), really smoothed things out.

The TCU replacement did seem to mellow things a bit - but I'm not sure that isn't in my head, and I'm just adapting to the bike.

One other thing (sorry if I repeat myself), the bike is really sensitive to chain adjustment - loose and it gets very snatchy. At the end of one trip the bike was really acting up - when I got home I adjusted the chain and filled up with known good gas (the single hose pumps start filling with whatever the last guy used). It all calmed down.

Another thing that's been on my mind: not all the bikes are suffering the way some are describing. I'm thinking there's something wrong that needs repair and the palliatives aren't addressing this problem. Not very helpful I guess, but I'd really get the dealers to get their hands dirty.

Speaking of dealers. I spoke to a dealer about getting the warranty work done. I didn't buy it from them. He said they didn't do appointments. Ok. Weird. But Ok.

Next he mumbled something about getting the same treatment as people who had bought from them.

So I suggested they order the part beforehand since we know what it needs. He said they couldn't do that without the bike there. It would be up to a week before they could get to that, after I dropped the bike off. Its spring, I get it.

But then he said "We are supposed to tell you it will take 2 days to get here, but usually its more like a week to two weeks." and mumbled something about thats because of UPS.

So I just ordered one for $105 instead of waiting for a freakin month to get something that isn't THAT bad fixed.

3-4 weeks to get a recall done? crap!

I was also told by my shop that they have to have the bike on hand to order parts. Probably just to cover their ass from a mis-diagnosis over the phone.

My dealer wouldn't even order recall parts when I called them over the phone. Needed to have the bike with them. That's a bit over the top I think.
