    Would be nice if Yamaha offered one of these for the YBR. I have one for my KTM1190.

    .... The high compression rates (11+ :1) of modern engines causes problems with low octane fuel. An 8:1 rate would make trouble at all. I wonder how the mapping can influence ....
    Eager to learn that too (after understand the mothballs :-) )

    I didn't buy it for bad fuel. It's main feature is disabling the built in lawyer that KTM had to put on the bike. The 1190 has ABS & Traction Control which you can manually turn off. The lawyers at KTM decided that consumers are too stupid to remember to turn it back on, so every time you stop the bike and turn the key off, the ABS and Traction Control go back to the default "On" setting. This is a real pain in the ass when you're doing a full day of riding offroad with frequent stops. The Bad Fuel Dongle saves the ABS & Traction Control settings between stops.

    I'm willing to bet a person with a little electronics insight could easily duplicate the fuel mapping feature for any EFI bike. There can't be more than 8 bucks worth of materials to make one.

    Modron,

    Thanks for sharing the photos. I'm very envious. That's the ride of a lifetime in my opinion. I hope I'll be able to do a similar ride some day.

    Cheers,
