Single Two Brothers --- Need PCIII map & a quick review
..... if you have the Single sided Two Brothers Exhaust on your 919......
I'm looking for a couple of different Power Commander III maps to try out.
---- custom tune coming, but I'd like to get her close first!
Don't hate me.... let me start by saying.....I don't and never have liked Two Brothers.
BTW...... did everything in my power to NOT buy the Two Brothers. In the past with every sportbike I've ever owned the Two Brothers were at the bottom of the list. Did the research....and couldn't find anything against it. (other than people just simply not liking the brand....and not wanting to give it a chance....like the info on 919.org for instance...)
Now that I've bought the system and installed it..... have to say.... I'm quite impressed. It has a nice deep tone at idle, not too loud at highway RPM's, the single can 3/4 system is CHEAP - paid $350, surprisingly comes with a Galfer braided rear brake line, everything install wise has been well thought out, was surprised to see that the fit and finish were excellent (didn't expect this), it is a HUGE difference in weight reduction, and to be honest the bike noticably pulls harder. Add to that.... I'm sure when I get the right map in the PCIII --- its going to be even better.
Only down side to the entire install was - time involved. In order to pull out the OEM Y pipe --- you have to pull out the rear shock. (there may be another way.....but couldn't figure it out....so, I just pulled it not wanting to scratch anything up in the process). The only other issue was pulling the OEM brake line, reinstalling the SS line, priming the line with the Mighty Vac, then doing a good bleed with some fresh fluid.
It probably took me a solid 2 hours to complete.
All in all though......You just can't beat it. (I'll post up pics this afternoon)
