Interesting... although I don't think for the not-so-common mods done on my bike that a mail-in reflash would be ideal. Once you start going above and beyond the typical bolt-ons, it really requires a proper dyno session. Certainly for the usual slip-ons, full exhaust, air filter, changes they have sufficient experience to know the best tweaks though.

As I said Honda ECUs are quite well protected and I'm not aware that they would be be flashable (with a few exceptions mentioned earler)
From this guys website:
"Available for Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha"

Got the bike back from the dyno today following the touch up tune after modifying the airbox as described in the high flow airbox mod thread.
It loses 0.5-1.hp at 3300-4200rpm; gains 1-2hp 4500-6200 and again 8200-9600rpm, with the other ranges on par with prior.
A bit of a difference in the maps from before and after, with after being leaned out even more than standard.
Map file attached for those that are interested.

Not too bad of a gain for just making the airbox intake hole larger.
Note I had to swap from K&N pod style filter to Sprint filter which is of the oem design.

Ttz, do you think the airbox mod will show the same results with a motor where no other modifications have been done, i.e. stock and with stock air filter?

hard to say definitively. A while back there was debate whether running with or without the funnel did anything even on stock engines. The first tune a couple weeks ago, the tuner did find running without the funnel was better for my setup, and the bigger bike with this setup even better.

There is merit to stay there is a limitation with the airbox inlet. How much is gained by modifying it would be exponential to other mods done. The lid to the airbox (excluding funnel) is only $4 from the dealership, so a pretty cheap thing for anyone to give it a go.

doing commuting duties, and temptation is rife to go the long way home via a bit of mountain pass. Loving how much go the bike has these days and does make me wonder... is it currently the fastest CBR500R in my town, state, country, world?
Am certainly finding out what it is capable of, and glad I can contribute to the community to inspire others

I'm just now getting into this bike. I actually did not know of its existence until a couple of weeks ago. I stumbled upon it while researching the 300cc Ninja and Honda to use as a second bike. LOL
Now I'm hooked.

So, with my very limited knowledge, I say...you just may be the king dick of the CB 500 world.
And that covers the entire planet, maybe even the universe.

Congratulations, I raise my glass to you.

Interestiny stuff. I'm cramming the 500 motor into a custom project, glad to see there's some work to be done to wake it up a bit.

CBR500R 1/4mile

one of the clips from last night at the drag strip.
Note haven't reset the shift lift since the mods yet, so it's triggering about 800rpm too early still. This is only my second (and a half, cause one other night got rained out after only one run) time taking a bike down the quarter, so don't expect a stellar performance. Can definitely go faster, next time I'd like to run it with some accessories removed and less fuel to reduce weight, and to swap the sprocket and chain back to the factory 41T for better comparison; the best report I've read is a 13.798@96mph, but most others I've read are getting in the 13.9-14.1s@88-92mph. My best on the night was a 13.375@97.62mph; I believe with less weight and sprocket change a 13.2@100 is definitely acheivable.
