Ivanís ECU Flash Now Available for VStar 1300

Hey guys. I wanted to follow up on my previous threads from earlier about Ivan’s ECU flashes. He just added a flash for the VStar 1300.

A couple of years ago, Ivan used my Raider to create an ECU flash and map for my bike. If you go to the Raider page on his site, mine is the red one. The performance difference is incredible along with a smoother ride with no decel popping. He finished up an ECU flash for the Bolt and 950 earlier and those guys love it, just like I (and all the Raider guys) love the Raider flash.

I highly recommend this mod as it will dramatically change your bike, and for the better. Go to Ivan's Performance Products

That's great! I have installed a Cobra fuel management Fi2000 on my 1300 so how does it work with Ivan's ECU flash? Or am I out luck

I run the Power Commander but a lot of Raider guys run the Cobra. Give Ivan a call. He can be more specific.

Ok. I just realized the fi2000 is the PowrPro. That's what the Raider guys are running and it works great.

Either FMC will work with the ECU Flash. Check out his page for what the ECU flash actually does. The Fuel management controllers are preferred to dial in optimal performance when using different exhausts/air intakes. If you have an aftermarket exhaust and intake the best performance will be the ECU flash and the added FMC. I have had long talks with Ivan (That's actually my bike posted on his webpage with the dyno results). I lent him the bike over the winter for his testing. He has put hundreds of hours into optimizing the ecu and the end results look really nice on paper. I will be picking the bike up this weekend hopefully and provide further details as to how the bike rides/handles once I get it back.

Kudos to you. Your generosity will help a lot of people with the 1300.

actually, his site left me with a lot of questions as to exactly what is being done to the ECU. not go to into specifics here since this has been a hot issue with some in the past and lot of misunderstandings, but here is a direct quote from Ivan on a different site that offers more insight as to what he is doing (the following is in regards to his work on a Bolt):


"Yes there is a noticeable power increase, but that's the easy part.
There is also a noticeable reduction in vibration throughout the rpm range, as well as a marked improvement in throttle sensitivity. (a little goes a longer way)
There is no popping at all on decel and none at re-application of the throttle at any rpm on my bike. Re-application of the throttle is is very smooth and easy to modulate at any rpm.... a much more "direct" feel.

I may not leave the rev-limit at 6000 rpm...
I may drop it down to 5750 because 6000 rpm puts piston speed at slightly over 4600 FPM, and 5750 is appx. 4450 FPM.
I feel that better safe than sorry later. This bike is already set at 5750 (in the lower gears only) already from the factory."

What you quoted has nothing to do with the Bolt. If I'm reading correctly, the Bolt's rev limit is 7100 after the flash. The 5750 rev limit applies to the 1900 (Raider, RL, SL).
