  1. VIDEO: What is motorcycle ECU flashing?

    The latest shop bike, a 2015 Yamaha Tracer, has been a dream since we got it but one gripe that has always been there is that the fuelling is snatchy or a bit jumpy at mid throttle, lower RPM.

    It was a known issue on the earlier MT-09 models (sharing same engine) and it is there because of how little fuel Yamaha give these bikes in lower RPM in order to pass emissions regulations - it basically runs lean.

    So to fix this we got the bike over to Gary in MotoTuning.ie

    The video below should explain exactly what is motorcycle ecu flashing.

    I've been looking forward to getting the new Yamaha Tracer out on a trackday. From the day I collected it and realised that it's a lot sportier than it looks I wanted to see how the 3 cylinder motor was on track.

  3. VIDEO: Givi Tanklock Tank Bag 3D603

    One of Givi's smarter items in the soft luggage range - The Givi Tanklock 4lt Bag (3d603)

    I love these because they work on all tanks (plastic and metal) and don't mark the paintwork.

    I also find it perfect for taking your valuables with you when parking a motorcycle with luggage. I pack mine with passport, driving licence, wallet, keys, glasses. It means that I can walk away from the bike knowing that I have all the high value pieces with me.

    Available for almost any bike but definitely most popular for sports and sports touring models.
