the hollywood dealer adjusted my mapping today to relieve the heavy engine braking and move a flat spot from 3200 rpm (or so) up to the 4000 rpm area, on my GT.
(so i'm told)
the bike is much smoother now in 1st and 2nd, but i still feel the flat spot at 4000 rpm.
he mentioned that the catalytic converter helped to create the flat spot somehow. I asked him about removing it but he skirted the question.
so, will having a shop remove the catalytic converter make the bike run any smoother?
and are there any negative performance issues that may come as a result of doing so?
also, is it possible that an even newer mapping version might be released to solve all of this?
again, thanks for you input
