The bike turned out very well. It was a long road from that first phone call in March 2017 when we spoke about whether the SP2 was even real :grin2:

Glad it has turned out as well as it did - which I think is fantastic considering every thing we have done with the SP2 has been ground breaking and outside of a few race teams has not been successfully pulled off before now.


....

yes, been a very long time -- thank you very much for your advice and contacts .. couldn't have done it without you, very pivotal piece of the research process. If I was not so anal on hard facts - I would have listened and asked questions before my ecu was flashed by FT :(

Can't wait for the warm weather - 2019 should be pretty cool -- COTA plans, Deals gap, a few Motoamerica weekends, and some trackdays

but hey, it's supposed to be 60 degrees on new years :)

a random night during break in miles



"running with the bulls" earlier in the year - post tune..

so after about 1-2 months, my new honda SP2 ECU has arrived. I am heading back to Bauce Racing for more tuning and this time using Woolich - which will give me more flexibility then FTECU which has bugs in it. The ecu is bricked and cannot be restored to exact stock conditions and is not usable with Woolich once it has a FT image on it.

For my purposes, FTECU does not allow the tuning capacity for on / off throttle like Woolich, does not allow adjustments to redline, does not allow custom temperature settings for fan control, does not get rid of error codes, and has incorrect scaling on base maps. Total crap for my needs.


Bauce racing should be me straight with their dyno tuning. Now I just need decent weather to take the bike there. Stay tuned

update - dropped off the SP2 and my track bike at Bauce Racing for some tuning love. Not sure when they are getting to it ...but as i said above - with my company I am partnering with a number of vendors doing a Ninja 400 build. for $40 to get a decal kit and an entry into the giveaway.

Also, if you post on Bauce's FB page a guess for the rwhp and torque numbers on MR12 - the closest person on each numbers both will get a few entry. Figured I'd share and let you guys know as this will be a great bike for beginner / track day hero / kids and girls alike. Share with your network or enter for a change to have a 2019 Ninja 400 :)

anyways a few "travel pics"

still at Bauce Racing ... working through getting rid of the steering damper code w/woolich .. worse case, purchased a healtech SD eliminator in case it boils down to it.. anyway, this is a pic from some time ago after the bike got together at the local dealership - Powersports East ..


cant wait for this to be done and the warm weather .. remember for a change to get a free entry to the 2019 ninja 400 bike build -- take a guess the rwhp and torque using race gas on Bauce Racing FB page ..

Speaking of final numbers, where are you at on your WSBK engine install?
The engine should be in my grubby hands by weeks end. It took a bit of a detour.

With the engine going into the licensed WSBK frame there are a few delays as proper thrust washers and o-rings are being sourced for the unique steering bearing layout.

In the mean time I have been offered a set of Ohlins WSBK forks and MotoGP calipers - so may try do a part exchange with some of the extra hardware I have on hand.

It is turning into a fuggen long process LOL
