When did you get your flash done? The newer flashes are supposed to have the fuel mapping in the ECU Program where I know the older ones did not. I ask this because I originally had the Powerpro Closed Loop (O2 sensor hookup) and it just didn't run right. I did the Ivan's flash recently on my Raider and removed the PowerPro before riding it per Ivan's recommendation and it rides great, extremely improved performance, but I get very subtle decel pops as if it is running lean and not getting great mileage. I also have the K&N mod and cobra swept exhaust and the flash, different bikes but similar enough setup. I am considering putting the Powerpro back on. When you put the Powerpro on did you hook the Powerpro in the O2 sensor since it is part of Ivans procedure to leave it unplugged? Also what made you want to add it? Thanks and sorry for all the questions, but I'm searching for answers!!7/30/2020 7:45 am PT (USA)
Adding Information from Ivan:
I spoke with Ivan ~7am PT (USA) this morning asking him about the current thinking with respect to the need for fuel managers on Warriors.
He said on stock bikes and bikes with intake mods and mid-length or longer exhausts, when installing Ivan's Warrior ECU Parameters Flash, a fuel manager does not appear to him to be needed based on his experiences.
He said his Warrior flash is the same as when it was developed. He also said that over time he has found that the Warrior can run fine with the flash and without a fuel manager unless you have a short (dump) exhaust or internal motor mods or turbocharger or supercharger.
He said if you want to dial-in your tune for peak performance then use a fuel manager. Or if your bike simply does not run right.
I promised Ivan I would post here so he could refer callers to this if helpful to him. Plus he might have more to add or clarify in his own words.
Hope this helps. I will add it into the companion thread for the Group Buy.
A few of her have both the Warrior and a Raider like myself. On my Warrior I will admit that the Ivan's flash helped plenty but with the overall feel something was lacking. I was running a little lean and needed to add fuel. Now with the Raider it did transform her and the torque on the lower end is much more apparent as he said there was some torque limiting by Yamaha and other stuff timing related to control that huge beast. I am still planning on getting a PC5 and having the Raider dyno tuned as well to see what I come out with. My Raider has 2 into 1 Freedom combat, open air box with a K&N and Ivan's and it does not pop at all.
Also after riding around a bunch this weekend, I believe it also solved my gas mileage issue as I was at around roughly 100 miles per tank. I now have over 100 miles and I'm at mid level on the fuel gauge.Awesome Info guys! I do want to set the record straight now that I had some time to play with the bike, have the mods I want and I have Ivan's flash which is supposed to fix the popping problem. When I put on my cobra swept exhaust I put in new crush gaskets and exhaust silicone so that I made sure there was no leaks which is why I was disappointed when I got the flash and it kept popping as if there was a leak. It also did this even more excessively with the Cobra PowerPro only when I changed the exhaust. The Stock exhaust hid what was going on very well and I didn't notice anything out of sorts until I put the exhaust on and was not familiar enough with the bike to notice any power loss. I decided to pull the tank off and check my coils, plugs and wires this past weekend. Everything checked out but I decided to pull the plugs to see if i was lean (white plug tip) or rich (black plug tip) and also check the gap and replace them if needed. The raider I picked up is a 2014 Raider SCL with 1,042 miles on it and not a single scratch or aftermarket part, so everything should have been good on it and from factory. I pulled the 3 easily accessible plugs and the gap was 0.021" when they should be between 0.030" & 0.035". I then got the one that is a pain to get to on the back right that you have to take the tank off for and found that the plug was smashed closed and was not working at all. This almost had to be from factory. I replaced the plugs and put everything back together and WOW what a difference!! Ivan's flash defiantly got rid of all the popping and it is running SUPER SMOOTH, so huge thank you and shout out to Ivan! I still have my Cobra PowerPro, and will hold on to it for a while and be checking my plugs to see the fuel mixture. If I start going lean, I will probably put the Cobra Back on it and try to add some more fuel. For right now I am extremely happy! I have the same setup as you do just with the Cobra Swept exhaust.
Post a picture of your fuel gauge . . . oh wait . . . you have a Raider!Also after riding around a bunch this weekend, I believe it also solved my gas mileage issue as I was at around roughly 100 miles per tank. I now have over 100 miles and I'm at mid level on the fuel gauge.
