i got my full system and my PC3r on friday and road all weekend :thumb: ive only got a map off the net but im pretty damn happy with it :D
i seem to have lost a bit of power under 4000RPM and it seems like ive lost a lot of engine braking :huh: the power is much smoother and higher up in the Revs it really gives a big kick where before the pull was much the same all the way through the Revs. its sounds a lot different also.. sort of like a V2 fast bang,bang.... my last Micron Slip-on was a deap brrrrrrr.....
anyway im really happy and its like when i first got it and i was straight off my 250cc :evilaugh:
ill try and beat my 10.9sec 1/4mile soon

here are some pics :thumb:

Hey Brenny, to post a pic all you have to do is scroll down to "manage attachments" when replying and upload there and they will be shown, unlike the 250 forum where you need someone to host them.

thanks Zop... ive always been a dumb shit :rolleyes:

also over the weekend with the new bike i was getting a lot of head wobbles/tankslaps that i didnt get much before :idunno: do i need a damper now with the new power?? and can i get the bike re-mapped so i dont have the loss of power under 4000rpm?? it might even be 5000rpm.. i cant feel the difference until 6000rpm< but then its extreme :eek:
any ideas would be great because ive only had this bike 5 months and im not the best on it :crap:

Not a problem at all. I didn't get organised until about 6pm on Firday night so that didn't really give you much time to get the details.

I got to the pub at about 12:50pm (bit late) had a meal (damn good meals there by the way) and took off about 1:30. When you saw me I'd just finished my first out and back spur run and decided I had to stop to take a leak and grab a drink.

I was pretty stuffed on Saturday, a 2am "spirited" trip up the south eastern freeway with a mate on his GSXR1000 had my adrenaline running and then I couldn't sleep so I jumped on the org and got into a 'dog with a bone' style post exchange with Conq. So it wasn't until about 5:30am that I went to sleep. I only had about 4-5 hours of sleep when I took off for Healesville added to that a total of about 20-25 hours sleep for the week and the fact that I haven't done that much riding in over two years and I'm pretty unfit. So I was pretty stuffed and needed to pull over just have a sit down and rest a bit with an energy drink. About that time you came into the picture.

I did another out and back run and bought some chestnuts from the girl who gave me a wave on the way back the first time round (I thought that was worth a purchase plus she was right near where I was doing my U-turn) then went home and rested up a bit before going out for dinner.

No-one came on Sunday only heard from Zop who SMSed me to day he couldn't make it. Everyone else chickened out. I wrote a bit more stuff at the end of the thread about the ride...you should check it out.

Half as good. :huh: We are going to have to work on your factions, when the numerator is a 2 and the denominator is a 1, that means that its expressed like so, 2/1. So the 1000RR looks twice as good as the 954, especially with the rich blue underbelly of the tricolour paint scheme. :D

The ubrupt power is caused by the loss of bottom end, sure it will pull harder higher in the revs, but you are now lacking bottom end so when it comes on it actually feels a lot stronger than it is, because of the loss down low.
Some custom mapping may help the bottom end a bit, but it's a trait with the micron that you loose some bottom end, that why quite a few members went with the hindle, cause it did not loose any bottom end.

I'm sure it was discussed to him earlier, it's just he was getting a good deal on a micron and power commander, I may be wrong, but I think that's correct :idunno:

The pcr will help a little with the bottom end.
When the micron serpents came out, a few members tried them and tried custom maps, some even went to the extent of playing pretty intensley with different custom maps, none could get rid of the dip in the power curve at about 5000 rpm (I think), 1 member (taz?) found that reconnecting the flapper in the air box actually helped the situation but did not eliminate it.

cheers Ratter.. ill hook up my flapper again... ill get a custem/dyno map in a few months.. but until then i should be happy... it has a hell of a lot more power up top..even with the drop down low... but the power kicks in about 4000-5000rpm where my old exhaust kicked in at 3000-4000rpm. ill just have to stay up in the Revs :thumb:

yeah the PC3r and the full exhaust with can fitted for $1700 and my slip-on :evilaugh:

I have the same basic setup. after the install I had a really bad flat spot down low after a custom map I have to say it is gone.
(Flapper is gone)
I ran a 03 gsxr before and after the Micron and HE was amazed, big differance. I bang the limiter easily, when she was stock there was not a chance.

You do the math.

Brenny, Phil Tainton will map it for you and it will help your bottom end heaps. The dip will be around 3 like before, but won't be as bad. A damper for the 954 is a MUST I rekon. They're pretty twitchy anyway. Go and see the guys at Redwing Honda. Tell them I sent you (Trev from Doin' Bikes) and they'll look after you on a Matris Damper. Let me know if you have any drama's.
BTW, I love how someone above said "They played with many CUSTOM maps and still had the dip". Hahaha A custom map is one that is written for THAT bike. If a map is written for another bike and you use it, it ain't a custom map anymore. If your bike has been mapped right, it's as good as it's gonna get. Changing it is only gonna make it worse.

sook is right as usual , the dip is around 3k when u try and go wot which is kinda stupid when u think about it since no bike can benefit from being hammered to wot at 3k ...... the only other dip will be if the flapper is still in and the power will start to fall off slightly after 6k and when the flapper opens at 7k it picks back up ... i really cant feel it but it showed up on my dyno run
