New F4 "Black Mamba" owner

Hi,

I live in El Paso, TX and recently added a 2005 F4 1000 "Black Mamba" edition to my garage. The bike comes with all the goodies from the kit and also with the RG3 Arrow exhaust; after a few rides I got rid of the catalytic convertor and installed the Arrow Y pipe, but I guess I'm going to need some kind of fuel control device because I'm getting some backfiring now. I'm new to MV so just wanted to know if somebody has some leads that I can follow to cure this issue.
I love the bike, the weight sure disappears once you get going.
Thanks,
Hector

Welcome and congrats on the bike. You need either a RG3 eprom chip, or a PowerCommander and dynotunning.

Hi there Hector and welcome to the forum.


Taking the cat pipe out certainly upsets the fuelling a bit and what you are describing is indeed typical.

You'll certainly need a device called a Power Commander III USB which allows a skilled operator with a dyno to adjust the fuelling to suit. With this device fitted you'll be able to have the bike custom mapped to suit its new characteristics now you have taken the cat off.

Your next job is to locate a good tuning shop not to far away, I'm sure one of the lads in the US will be able to point you in the right direction.

Its very possible to get some great results, just make sure you have it mapped by someone who really knows their way around a dyno. It may also be a good idea to put in an aftermarket air filter such as a BMC before you have it mapped too.
