I can do that. The interface is really cool and user friendly for freeware. The pro allows you to manipulate redline and other track oriented stuff but, way more than average street rider needs.

I actually just updated to Windows 10 and haven't tried interfacing yet. Hope that's not a problem. Yaman set the box up correctly for AT when he had it so I didn't need to mess with software.

Are you in close proximity to his shop that you could go there if needed? No one around here knows anything about the rapidbike.
Can't wait to get one Just waiting for a warranty issue to get worked out so I can't tamper with the bike yet.

I actually live in VA for my job for a couple years but, will return to FL eventually. He would have only been 1.5 hrs from me, had I done it a year ago. I wouldn't have done this until my warranty was up back in May, regardless.

Dammit, thats a great write up, looking at fitting this to my bike, just took delivery of a GPR slip on exhaust that was the right money (steal infact).
So going to install that in that next week and delete the flapper. Just wondering if it will be worth doing the air filter too

More air is always good, especially when you have a system monitoring and adjusting the A/F ratio. I would certainly source the Ducati Performance Intake if you're going to pull the tank - it's supposedly cheap but I can't seem to find the damn thing anywhere. The MWR power up kit could probably be an easy DIY project - it's just a breather foam cutout with a fitted brace and a washable stock filter.

*Just mind the main fuel line. It's a bitch to route correctly when reseating the tank and pinching mine caused all the headache I noted above.

Yes ordered the mwr filter and powerup kit at the same time as the rapidbike evo module, hopefully everything should be at home by the time I get off the rig. Looking fwd to fitting it all, I'll pay attention and take my time with the fuel tank. Going to replace the spark plugs too as there due. 10k on it now
Cheers

I just spent a month at sea...I couldn't even load this site when the web connection was "good".

So, having pulled the tank 3 times now, I'll throw out some recent caution areas/tips with the caveat that I have a natural tendency to overtighten/snap bolts:

-If you want the cleanest and easiest tank pull, remove the handlebars completely. For me, unhooking all the control cables/wires and loosing the set positions on all of them was not worth it. Even loosening the bars and swinging forward will buy you 15 extra minutes of cursing the tank and crushing knuckles as you try and negotiate the tank past the bar riser.

-Mind the seat lock/release mechanism inside the frame. I was unknowingly caught up on this with the aft end of the tank for a while the 1st time and ended up bending the entire mechanism without noticing until much later when I finally stuck the key in the release. It had folded it down, bending the outer plastic. No permanent damage in the end.

-Be very careful with the 2 small silver Allen bolts that secure the center tank plastic around the fuel port. They bite hard and I rounded one out one, forcing me to cut the plastic cover so I could remove. I'd maybe even replace with a new set; they look cheap.

-Obviously, the less fuel you have in the tank the easier it will be to handle the pretty awkward size/shape.

-Re-read my after action report on the fuel pump cover and shroud. Even after tackling this thing twice before, it was the worst part of the job and probably aided in my kinked line issue.

Cheers and good luck!

Thanks dammit, some usefull info there that i'll take note of, especially removing the bars, I'm a mechanic bytrade so pretty confident in tackling jobs like this, in fact I enjoy doing this kind of thing.

I might take some pics of the install and put on here.

I didn't remove my bars and didn't have any issues removing the tank. Hmm.. it's definitely an odd thing though..


I bought a box of those flat head screws in stainless steel if you want a few, cause mine stripped out too
