120 mph, right? 100km = 60m
KPH = 0.621371192 miles per hour, or 100KPH = 621371192, or 62 MPH.  200KPH = 124 MPH.  Whatever, the C14 will probably do that in 4th.  My ZZR1200 exceeded that in 4th, I know.

I had to look twice...I thought for a second it read 200km/hr.

Shhhhh
I think my speedo is acting up. Could have sworn my read 220(136) then it actually read 230(142)for a stretch. I might have been hallucinating.  ::)

In response to Tomp, just the reflash the flies are still intact. In my opinion, no need to remove the flies with the Guhl reflash

Nope, no sweat for the 14.  Just watch out for those Mounties.  Hear they are a tough group.  tp

Thanks Dan.  I like mine as stock, but a reflash in the future, may be in order.  Thanks.  tp

Installed my ECU after Guhl reflash and took the bike for a ride. Unbelievable! Wish I had done that a year ago. Best mod I have made to the bike. Now it runs like it should have all along if the EPA would have allowed it. [

That was my reaction when I did it to mine, exactly.

Still have the flies?  Just a reflash?  tomp

That is the whole point of the Guhl flash (well, maybe 95% of it, anyway)... to have the secondary butterflies open completely very quickly.  The remaining 5% (??) is the fuel trim and top speed limiter removal.

No.  It was added in 2010 (not that it matters to most owners, since few care about going over 154 MPH.  I don't think mine has ever been over 115.)

Taken mine over 135 GPS, but only once, to nose thumb a BMW riding friend.  Is there a site for Guhl or just a secret handshake?

A big part of the gospel of Guhl is that leaving the 'flies in actually increases intake velocity compared with them removed. That is all fine and well if anyone cares what the velocity is in the intake tract but then somehow that "fact" leads the flock to believe that velocity increase also increases engine power output. So the reflash has something for everyone I guess, the above story for those who choose to believe (or blindly follow idiocy), and humor for the rest of us.

:-)

The easiest, fastest and most absolute way to open the 'flies the soonest is to remove them and put them on a shelf somewhere where they cannot do any harm.

Brian, I knew I could depend on you to throw logical confusion into the deal.  Appreciate your input.  With Guhl or w/o flies, does it pull like the ZX14 (not R), or more like the carbed ZZR1200, I had?  From 4K up, it was a beast.  Leaned forward and just hanging on for the ride.  tp    Thanks Rubberdown.   WOW, all those chart numbers reminds me of what I deal with at my job.  I hate rows and rows of numbers.   Appreciate the help, though.  tom

Can somebody tell me what kind of impact the reflash has on fuel consumption?  Thanx in advance for your reply
