The 1078 312RR is notably more stable/smooth when I downshift. I'm going to install a TSS (not Torque Shift System) slipper I picked up. I installed a set of Motocorse Evoluzione ti slip ons and the RG3 eprom that came with the bike works fine with it. The bike is louder and has a much more exotic low end gurgle.

I think.you might find it is the way the ECU works that is causing the downshift issues.

It can only switch the ebs / fuel cut on or off where as the 1078 ECU can ramp everything up or down smoothly so you don't notice.

If you are not upgrading the ECU then the best thing is to eliminate the fuel cut during off throttle together with the ebs ....then it will be smooth as !

The Tambo is on the earlier ecu isn't it? As in the 16m not the 5m?

Thanks for the feedback, the EBS system fascinates me. I was having an interesting chat with Chris at Xbikes the other day (specifically on the Microtec M226 -5m replacement-), he was telling me it can be set up like a two stroke or a v-twin and anywhere in between. Clever stuff really.

Motocorse Ti slip ons, worthless without pics From what I've seen on you tube they're the best sounding I have come across, saw a vid of these on a Senna, enjoy

It's not an issue, just different. I likely won't go past the slipper clutch in looking for the qualities of the 312RR. I have a Microtec but don't feel the need so far.

Nothing really super special about them visibly. They look pretty similar to RG3's. They're super light.
