HELP: Disconnect battery after installing Staintune + Evo Race Airflow???
Okay, so. . . I had the dealer put on Staintune and Evo Race Airflow system today, during the 600-mile service on my '06 KS. When I got the bike back, it sounded great, but felt boggy--particularly in the mid-range--and it didn't seem to take off over 7K rpm the way I was expecting.
Before leaving the dealership, I had specifically asked the tech whether he pulled the leads off the battery after seeing something somewhere about needing to reset the ECU after adding pipes and air filters. The tech told me that the ECU automatically adjusts to whatever fuel/air/exhaust setup is on the bike, and does not require a hard reset via unplugging the battery.
What is the common wisdom on this situation? Should I go ahead and pulled the battery leads? If so, for how long?
Thanks in advance for any input; I am really stressed after the disappointing 30-mile ride home tonight :-(
