Hey mate - where did you get your remap done? And how much did it cost?

It's a DIY remap - non restricted maps assembled with restricted ones and some additional tweaks to OEM flash. You need some programming background to create a new flash file and pay for a license for flashing tools. In this sense it's not a remap, you need to modify A LOT of stuff in a flash file - it took me some weeks to create a correct file.

Maybe it's possible to use a bin file from Thai bikes AS IS but I didn't tried it - repair bricked ECU would be quite difficult if something goes wrong. If you haven´t plan B I wouldn't choose this option.

Hola. ¿Cómo ha afectado la modificación del firmware de la ECU al consumo de combustible?

El consumo se ha reducido porque la mezcla al 100% de acelerador esta cerca de 13 en vez de 12 como estaba originalmente.

Hey timur,
I have a 2019 Honda CB500X. Are you offering ECU reflash?
If so, could we discuss it?
(Couldn't send you PM since I'm new here.)
