Modifications to my XR

So after due consideration and discussion at the S1000XR forum, I removed the acoustic insert in the intake, installed an acrapovic header and set the ECU short and long term fueling trim values to zero. I also reset the quickshifter. I kept the standard exhaust.

This bike is now unleashed. Where before it had a dual character. 0-5500 rpm it had emission 4 fueling with the catalytic converter and particle burner and 5500 to 12000 rpm where it was mad. Now it pulls from 2000-12000 rpm in every gear and is just fantastic.

I have now ridden it for about 100 km in the new trim. The bike also runs about 10deg C cooler and does not cook so quickly in hot weather. Also my quickshifter is just fantastic and smooth.
The bike is louder with the acoustic insert out but now it breaths so much better and it is just seriously intoxicating riding.

BMW did all the work and my warrantee is intact due to the acrapovic header been accepted.

I might even go down 2 teeth on the sprocket which should bring the refs 500 rpm lower in each gear and give it a higher top speed because of the wider power spread.

Re: Modifications to my XR

After install the header what did you do with the servo motor for the exhaust flapper valve? It might set code 21FA21 if left on. I removed the motor and installed a servo buddy. Did you install a dynojet fuel commander like Akrapovic recommends? I dropped the front sprocket one tooth since I do not do any highway riding just back roads. Doing those modes does make it a different bike. I will be adding the fuel commander next week. Still snow on the ground here and the roads are a mess of salt and sand. Looking forward to start commuting to work again. You know the ride 20 mins. to work and then it takes an hour and a half to get home.

Re: Modifications to my XR

Furman, I left the servo motor in but removed the control cable and I have no error codes on mine.
