Does this look normal? (TRS on 919)

I installed CF Yosh TRSs on my 02 919 July 4th.
My bike had a PCIII installed by previous owner (pre-USB model).

I don't have a laptop of my own, & I'm not a pro at uploading maps.

I THOUGHT I was running one of the SATO maps for the first couple weeks.
It's quite possible I didn't load it right. It seemed a little rough, almost wanted to backfire on deceleration.
NOW (if things were done right) I'm trying out the 2Bros map. It's a bit smoother.

Anyone else getting the bronze tips? Is this normal?

Any input would be helpful - just don't comment on the rear tire

That is completely normal. I have an 06 with the stainless trs slip ons. Mine turn that color every 2 weeks or so, but I commute 200 miles a week. I use mothers mag and aluminum polish to clean it off, works like a champ!

Funny you should ask... the two times I thought about weighing both sets were; 1) the first time I pulled the Yoshi's outta the box
2) when I was cleaning up the stock set AFTER the install was complete

If it does any good, I could go weigh the stock set & post the results.

CF Satos are supposed to be about a ten pound weight savings over factory, I'd presume the Yoshis are about the same?

Don't worry about the bronze but do worry about your setup.
I have stainless TRSs on my 2005 and love them.
Also have PC III USB.
Also had problems re installing map - being clueless about such things.
Then I got into it !
Do yourself a favour, and do it right.
Even though it is described as an advanced feature, any install of a PC is not complete and right unless the throttle positioner is synched to to the PC. Synch both the Closed and Open throttle positions.The Closed one is the most important. If you don't do, the map will be out of synch with the engine all the time. Then install your map. Why think of 2B ? If the map is as good as their cans, you won't be happy.
I've been using Lord Duck Hunters map based on Moriwakis and it is excellent. Don't be thrown off by the name, the guy did an excellent map and it works great with my TRSs. Got to www.919.org and you can get to the map. Others to try are the Dan Kyle maps, which are based on early and later Satos. Mr. Kyle needs no introduction. Back to the PC III USB. If you want more help, go to the PC website. Get to Support. Get to Downloads. Get to PC III USB. Start with Tutorial # 10 (how to set throttle position values) Then Tutorial # 3 (how to send a map to the power commander).
Hey, if I was able to figure it out and do it, anybody can !

It isn't Two Brothers map! It was either put on the Dynojet site by Dynojet, or by someone else who had Dynojet do the map for his Two Brothers mounted bike. Most of the maps on the Dynojet site were provided by Dynojet's customers after they spent their own money to have them developed.

Come on, Man! If Two Brothers advertised in your yellow pages, would you throw the phone book away? ...and I do not run Two Brothers products; however, I do run the Two Brothers map and continually thank whoever paid for it and donated it to the site because it works very well on my 919 with a CBR900RR header.
