Ignition Advance Kit
100% reliable advance method. NO add-on ignition module
GSXR Shift STAR Kit
wicked good shifting!
Race bike ECU Reflash
What would it be like if someone who knew about tuning actually found an sv1000 and spent some time on the reflash programming?
It would be good.
Unleash hp in your trackday or race bike. (but everybody says that)
Removes high rpm power restrictions (but everybody says that)
Change rev limiter. (but everybody says that)
Removes / modifies speed limiters (but everybody says that)
Modifies ignition timing. (but everybody says that)
F-Pro Electronic TRE - eliminate old school plugin TRE.
This F-Pro SV1000 Torque flash - with our included electronic TRE:
improves lowend response for better low speed
increases midrange grunt for better 2 up and better corner exits
and more topend - well, for better topend
and with subtle secondary butterfly map mods,
decreases the stock, harsh engine compression braking and softens on-off throttle operation for nicer "light throttle" manners.
Smoother, stronger, quicker and just plain, nicer.
$375 for semi-custom Torque flash
With 35+ years of tuning experience, Factory Pro knows the key to silky smooth and strong running.
That's why we do tuning for people all over. Except CA streetbikes.
MMT Power Switch
After tuning with
a Teka SFI 2,
MMT plugs right in to the bikes tuning port (same as the SFI).
If tuning with the SFI 2 / MMT combination:
If tuning with the MMT only (without custom SFI
If you first install an MMT and decide the have
it custom tuned with the SFI 2, no problem.
Then, you still have the ability to "trim" map for conditions with the Power Select Switch - and you even have, by setting it at "0", to recheck how the "zero" map was in comparison to your "SFI Tuned Map".
EZ install - all stock connectors, no splicing.
Evo Shift STAR kit - Kit for shift improvement (maybe like a "night and day" improvement?
Evo Shift STAR
Or just remember how clunky the shifting is around town.......
The EVO Shift STAR kit is the below Pro Shift Kit, with the addition of the Factory Pro Evo STAR.
Great Product! I just installed my Detent Star & wanted you to know it transformed how my TL shifted! no more miss-shifts. Thanks - Brian Kirner

Use this simple kit to advance the ignition timing 4 degrees
for more power at part throttle and at full throttle.
Takes about 1/2 hour to install and adds 1-2 True HP.
Drop in a Factory Pro
BMC air filter and add a horse or so at high rpm. Really. You can clean it,
The stock FI system recognizes the decreased inlet restriction (higher pressure) and automatically adds a teeny bit more fuel to compensate. At least it compensates in the general "right" direction. We haven't seen any drivability problems caused by the filter - but if you were to dial in the stock ECU with the Teka SFI programming tool (not an add-on box that stays on the bike), your bike will be better - even w/o changing the air filter.....
Does not work well with power commander.
Designed by the same Italian craftsmen that developed Ferrari's F1 Air Filters - this filter filters well, flows more air and lets the engine make more power than the stock air filter.
Cleanable BMC air filter systems (avail. direct from Factory Pro) for more power - click here for more information.
|Thermostat||The coolant thermostat controls the minimum
It doesn't raise the maximum coolant temperature, only the lowest temperature allowed by the thermostat.
The TL's that we've worked with had a running range of ~40f - from 165f-170f cruising down the highway on a cool day to 200f-205f in ~25mph traffic at <3000rpm. At that spread of temperatures, the TL's FI system didn't correct adequately, allowing rich and lean problems to appear and disappear as the coolant temp changed.
There are several solutions if there is are tuning problems caused by excessive coolant temp range.
Replacing the thermostat with a higher minimum temp unit, perhaps 185f. Easy to do.
The water pump doesn't pump much below 3000rpm, so "blipping" the throttle
above 3k occasionally when in traffic helps move the coolant through the radiator and
lower the temp - decreasing the coolant temperature.
|Backfire under Decel (persistent)||Air cannot be allowed to enter the exhaust port. If there are ports that bleed air through the head into the port, plug them.|
|Gear Indicator Resistance||So, you heard something about "Big Pink"? As measured on 1998 TL1000R, in-house unit: Gear and indicator resistances as follows:|
(urban legend says a 15k resister is 5th gear - it's NOT!!)
|If you want to fool the ECU into thinking it's in
one gear or another, you could jump a resistor across the 2 wires on the main harness that
would normally go to the gear indicator unit at the end of the shift drum.
As an example. If you wanted to trick the ECU into thinking that the bike was in, say 4th gear, you would place a 2.7k ohm between the appropriate wires. Don't call us and ask any more about it - it's up to you to use this information as based on facts, rumor, intuition, wishes and desires......
Also, the resistance values seem to be identical to the 98-99 GSXR750 - and the 00-02 gsxr750 and the gsxr1000's....
Tech - gearbox secrets
So.... you've looked at
gearboxes for years and
inside the cases, they look
pretty much the same.
Check this part out -
If the fingers are closer to the
pin that the shift shaft arm
needs to grab to downshift,
downshifts will be "quicker" and
The pins are centered between fingers when the shift shaft is at rest.
If you look closely at the LH picture, you can see that I shimmed up the shift shaft centering stud with a folded business card, ~.024" offset made the difference.
This is not
The pins are not centered between fingers when the shift shaft is at rest.
If they don't drop down fully, beyond the "pins", that prevents the "fingers" from dropping down and getting ready for the next shift.
If you've got issues - check.
Center Shift Stud, 8mm
shift shaft fingers aren't
centered on the shift shaft,
Factory Pro has the fix.
special 8mm thread, offset
"centering" stud, adjustable by
almost 1mm. For example, the
difference in the above example
was only .31mm/.024".
Install the stud with enough threads exposed for the locknut.
YOU MAY HAVE TO SHORTEN THE HEAD OF THE OFFSET END FOR CLUTCH BASKET CLEARENCE.
This fits all the DL650 / SV650 and others.

The extension of the laboratory
for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed
in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940).
He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after
the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar
to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal
use but well preserved.
