Rapid Bike Evo?

Hi All,

I'm fixin' to pull the trigger on a Rapid Bike Evo tuner real soon and would like some feedback from those that have them.

Particularly:

1) was it worth it?!? I've installed these tuners on just about every bike I've owned and could baaaarely tell any difference.;

2). Installation? Was it a bear? Where did you put the module? My undertail seems pretty full after my LED load-flasher bits.;

3) if you had a shop do it how much time did they charge?

Thanks in advance.

I have one and installed it myself. On this monster it's fairly easy just need the tank up or off. It makes a big difference to smooth out the bike. Also better in my opinion than bazzaz and I've used bazzaz on 3 of my ducatis in the past.

I have it. installed it myself in a about 45 minutes taking my time. I would purchase again. One thing I did not find in my research is that the seat must be in the high position for the module to fit under seat. I am short so that was a bummer. The performance of the unit makes up for that. I did shift tech exhaust and mwr air filter at the same time, so I can't say exactly what it would be like by itself.

my bike doesn't have adjustable seat height (1200R) .

mind sharing pics of how/where you installed the unit and possibly your wire run(s)?

I've never liked piggy backed modules, but if you're going the PC route seriously consider getting the AutoTune feature too.
I have a riding buddy that put the PCV AutoTune on his MotoGuzzi and was very happy with it.
I personally think the money spent on dyno runs and custom tuning to your ECU gives the best results.

Seems odd that that would throw a signal.. Do you have your butterfly valve connected? Have you considered disconnecting it if so? That also adjusts around that range as well, so maybe the 2 are playing against each other?
