I did try to swap ECUs to cure the on/off throttle, but all i needed was a tech who knew how to synch the throttle bodies and tune her up. I live by San Francisco and found a great shop called catalyst reaction in sam carlos. The owner used to work at munroe in san francisco and he sure made the bike that much more pleasant to run in city traffic. I am in love again.
That motor sound will never get old. Borrowing from Top Gear....at 12k rpm it sounds like an angry bear tearing apart Keira Knightley's silk nightgown !!!

The second mod is a biondi fairing/screen. I put it on the way it came (matte black), and it did not look right. I recently ordered mv agusta silver from colorrite, and after the color change....the screen blends in quite a bit better.

Yeah, my local dealer finally got someone who knows/is willing to put some effort into tuning rather then a bunch of knuckle dragger who just want to change plugs, filters and oil all day...
(yeah I'm a bit bitter...)

He spent a lot of time tweaking the Corse ECU settings (apparently he can do that) and TPS, Throttle bodies, etc etc... Runs quite nice now considering no Microtech ECU. Still has a very sensitive throttle but you can modulate it nicely and the power delivery is nice and smooth. So yeah, can be sorted with a bit of tuning work and someone willing to put the effort in.

Is that Dave (the owner of C.R. in San Carlos who used to work at Munroe) ? The suspension wizards?

suspension guru from Munroe, yes, but my contact's name is Jim, me thinks.
