Correct me if I'm wrong, but coming from car world with MTs, all cars have rpm limits to prevent over-revs but this does not mitigate against mis-shift or 'money shifts' if you shift from like 6th into 2nd going 80mph, for example. How is this different on a Grom or moto in general? Has anyone confirmed that with rev limit on Grom that if you mis-shift or money shift from 4th into 1st going 40mph+ will prevent it going past 9200rpm? This seems highly implausible as gearboxes physically will go past the rev limit if engaged past certain mph (ie: scenario outlined above). I know for a fact that in cars the rev limit does nothing if you mis-shift at speed, even in modern cars (as long as it is a real MT with a physical clutch).So, I've decided to go with ECU reflash from CJR. I decided to do so for a couple reasons, primarily rpm limiter and cold start. It's my wife's bike and I don't want her to have any sort of finickiness with starting in colder weather. I can manage that but I don't want to set her up with anything that could lead to frustration. The RPM limiter - my Duke 390 is setup GP shift and I want the protection for possible mis-shifts.
I've also decided to do aftermarket intake (MNNTHBX Mtake) and TB cam, so will get a flash setup for those specifically as well. :cool2:
Also relative to cold start - Yuminashi ECU has cold start condition programmed to make it run a bit rich at startup so it does not stall unlike the Finbro. It's not the same as factory cold start but from what I gather - it really is a non issue unlike the Finbro.
