Raising the Rev Limit on the F4-S

Guys,

Is there a chip that can be put in the S to raise the rev limit?

Or should I call Ferracci.

Shouldn't a PowerCommander be able to do that? Sorry, don't mean to answer your question with a question.

Yeah Im sure it can be raised, but do you really want to do that and push your engine beyond what it was originally designed to do without changing valves and what not? If you're going to do that then you should be going ALL out and do your "do deligence" to make sure you dont break your toy, or even worse, break your body. All kinds of nasty stuff can happen if you push an engine beyond its tolerances while riding. OUCH!!!!

Hey, if it can't take 17,000 rpms then they shouldn't have put a 17,000 rpm tachometer. That's false advertising - like saying an F4 312R can do 312 kph.

For the records, I'd love to see a top speed test between some 312s, an F4R, and F4S to see what the variance between the three models tranlates to outright speed. Now back to the topic.

I checked Power Commander's site and they claim thier Ignition Module can increase the rev limits on certain bikes:

The Powercommander for the F4S will not be able to raise the rev limit. You would need to replace the EPROM for that.
