    No question there. Crap in crap out.

    Where a standalone makes sense to me is basically covering the gaps in the map, it seems from the feedback we get from the reflashes on the kawasaki ecus they are always running off in some manner. I would just prefer to log and correct it rather than just run it and hope for the best even though I am without a doubt in the 99% lol

    The other issue is ppl trying to tune whole hog right out of the gate and burning the engine down. You dont just plug in a standalone and spool up your nagasaki noisy boy to 30 psi and tune it.

    The 1.8 has been tried more than once. It is not any faster or reliable than the K 1.5. It is the hull, as has been said for years, that limits the speed. Not the power plant.
    Pastorello had an 80+ MPH Ultra at this years MH. It was so fast, I told Pirate see that thing? WE both looked at each other with that "It will not make 300 miles" look and went on about our business. It did not. And it was in 1st and beating Yamahas.
    Now a 1.8 in an STX hull....hmmmmm
