  2. I think it was about that time the 1st go around. I tend to ride loops (if I'm staying local) checking back in to the RS for beverage & bathroom stops! :)
  3. Definitely NOT with the Z-Bomb. I was told they won't be posting dyno results with the Z-Bomb until they have production Z-Bombs ready to ship. With the Z-Bomb, that giant hole below 5k rpm kinda' disappears! :)
  4. most humans have that too So are the results repeatable for the rest of us, or do I need to ship my bike to them to get a z-bomb. ;) Ah, you guys are cracking me up! ...this is what I get for trying to get the info up before going to bed! lol
  5. I don't really have any way of recording video while riding, so you'll just have to take my word that it's a LOT smoother; especially the off-idle throttle response. To test this, I went up one of my favorite local roads, ( Piuma Rd. ) which starts with a very tight, climbing hairpin turn; this is normally nearly impossible to do smoothly as it is strictly a 1st gear turn, and usually covered in dirt and loose rocks. Today, no issue whatsoever! The bike came under throttle smoothly, with no abruptness at all! :) Until I get dyno results to post, there's not much more to say about the perf
  6. Well, a truck from Bazzaz, with my bike in the back, showed up at my house this afternoon! :) They are *still* waiting on ONE part to finish the Z-Bomb, but finished my bike off with a hand-built connector for the Z-Bomb on my bike. I will probably get final dyno sheets next week sometime. ...in the meantime, here's my initial impression: Z-Fi / Fuel mapping: ...perfect! Not an exaggeration, it is simply that better than it was stock; no humps in power, and no giant holes!!! Z-Bomb: What can I say, I now have full power in 1st & 2nd, and you know what? ...it's very nice, and not t
  7. The 3rd chart in the first post is 2nd gear with the Z-Bomb (unrestricted 1st and 2nd). I will see if they'll give me new charts, since my engine is fully broken in now, but it probably won't be vastly different.
  8. Actually, I had sent another email (1st in over a month) and got a response back from Chris at Bazzaz. ...turns out Ron, who I was dealing with, no longer works there and they will be taking my bike again next week. They still don't have connectors for the Z-Bomb (apparently, Honda did a great job of making it unobtanium) but they will be putting in the Z-Fi unit and making sure my bike is tuned correctly. It's disappointing that it's taken so long, but at least it's getting done, and I certainly understand how R&D can take a lot of left turns on you, so I'm not the least bit upset over
  9. Well, you've heard more than me then. ...at this point, I'm giving up on Bazzaz. They had my bike for a month, and all I have to show for it is 200 dyno miles on my bike and not being able to ride it for a month when it was brand new. :( I understand it can be hard to get connectors, etc., but you'd think an occasional email to say "hey, we're still working on it" wouldn't be too hard. Ah well, live and learn. They really were all super nice, but they are a tiny facility, and probably overwhelmed with actual race stuff this time of year. ...I just think 5 months should be plenty of t
  10. That graph of the Z-Bomb isn't a "claim" it was my bike, on the dyno, with their prototype Z-Bomb. ...and my engine has noticeably broken in a bit since it was there (according to my butt-dyno) so the overall numbers might be slightly better than that. ...now if only they could source the connectors!!!
  11. I do believe they will have an auto tune. Their stock maps will be based on a totally stock VFR and one with an akropovic skip on; they are very thorough with their dyno tuning though, and those maps should be very good. There will not be traction control. I was told that to make it work on the VFR it needed to be super sensitive and it was just more trouble than it was worth. Keep in mind that Bazzaz' traction control is not for bad weather or slippery roads, but rather for racetrack purposes, getting the absolute most drive possible while still deep in a turn and leaned over; the odds of
  12. Yep, the standard 1200F (vs. the 1200FDual clutch). Alang, if you're drag racing from a rolling 15 you REALLY want to start in 1st gear. It's a short gear, but it's not that short. 2nd at 15 mph is waaaaay at the bottom of the rev counter; no wonder it felt slow as hell building steam! lol
  13. I believe these are all with the stock pipe, and it's not clear from the naming what's going on in the first image; it may be just their baseline runs overlaid. ...if anyone understands "dyno lingo" let me know. lol These runs were done a while back when my bike had only 1700 miles on it. I can tell that the motor has woken up a bit since then so I'm looking forward to getting it back on the dyno with it fully broken in and the Akro pipe installed. Stock mapping (maybe the black line is with the Z-Fi unit and map): 1st gear with (black) and without (red) the Z-Bomb (removes 1st & 2
  14. Glad you got yours replaced. I need to go have a chat with my dealer about mine. I understand the part number thing though as they are part of an assembly (the carrier plate) but you'd have to order the entire assembly to get the plugs ...BS. If I can get more, I will just run a thin bead of silicon to hold them in, I don't think it would be too strong to pry them loose, but should hold them. ...then again, your saran wrap idea seems to be working pretty well! :)
  15. Actually, once you've done it once or twice, the new fairings are quite easy to take apart, and I love that there are no obvious fasteners. I'm amazed at the creativity of the engineers that put this thing together. It actually seems easier to work on than the 4th and 5th gens I had.
