Rapidbike Longer Term Report
Finally installed a Rapidbike to the Panigale 959. First impressions are Meh but I'm cognizant that it hasn't adjusted fully. Looking forward to eliminating the surge in Race mode and smooth out the throttle overall. Auto-Tuning range is set from 2000 rpm upwards. I have noticed a few 7's and up to 10's on the maps.
I toy'ed with the software and maps quite a bit initially violating the saying: If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Although that was fun, I reverted back to the basemap and did let the RB do it's thing.
Following several hundred miles, the lean mid-rpm surge in RACE mode is gone.
Some of you may be asking if it's worth it?
For a stock bike, I would have to say NO if you're buying it at full price plus a lengthy installation.
The difference in AFR improvements are marginal on a non-modified bike.
