I picked up my R7 on June 26th and am trying to put miles on daily. I've been riding for decades, off road, on road, and the last couple years track. I have the full R fleet, R3, R6, R7, R1, as well as a WR250F, FZ1, Super Tenere, and a Husky TE450 dual sport. I ride with my son and his friends in the canyons and on the track, getting in some off roading when we can. The R3 is actually for my daughter but due to covid she has not gone to get a permit or training yet. It was only home minutes when changes started happening. I have no need for passenger foot pegs on this bike, that is what the Tenere is for.

R77 is on, QS if I can find where to plug it in, then the ECU will be flashed. Stock suspension has been set up for me. I will change to a different rear shock and new cartridges in the front eventually. Brake lines hopefully Saturday, bypassing ABS. I use DP Brakes pads, RDP418, those went on right away. It's a race pad, they like to be HOT or they chatter. They can take a little getting used to but minimal effort is required when you need to brake hard. With the fairing set up I am hoping someone produces a fluid catch belly pan that fits right on, otherwise replacement fairings. The bar ends drive me nuts, with the amount of flex in them you feel like the bars are bending in turns, so either somehow get the factory insert out or new clip-ons, but I do not want to change the stock geometry, it is quite comfortable for me. Eventually a second set of rims, one set up for the street, one for the track. Speed Demon motorcycles in Vegas somehow got an extra 20HP out of an FZ07, all top end work. We'll see if there is any money left to do something like that, I am sure that wasn't cheap. That is what I am thinking right now.

I was told the ECU can't be flashed? I called a shop here in Central CA and they said you can't do it with this bike? Wth was he talking about?

I had been hearing that too, but Flash Tune definitely has cracked the ECU already. I still have the warning lights issues to work out with them but with the performance gains I can deal with lights. It would be pretty stupid of Yamaha to make a new "performance" bike you can't tune. Flash Tune is saying they will be coming out with an Active Tune product in the next few months. I hope people get credit for what they have already spent, a couple hundred to flash, $750 or so for Active Tune.
