Nice one Brenhden, great ride report. Do you think the uprated ECU affected your mpg and is it worth having?
Hmm, I'm sure it improves performance. I've not compared or monitored MPG enough to be sure about, also on the trip I was using petrol that varied from 95 to 102 octance! Either way it's not a drastic difference in MPG. I think it was money well spent on the ECU. You're welcome to test the difference in grunt if you like :) .

Fantastic and honest john review. Proves that it can be done easily with a small ring dinger.

Nice one!!

Some people say the engine runs smoother with the ECU, with less vibration. Would you agree with that or is there no difference?

Not sure I can answer that. I changed the ECU not long after the 600 mile run in so I've run the bike a lot harder since the change, from max revs 6k to max revs 8.5k. That said as per my report I ran the bike for 300 miles one day over 8k and didn't notice the vibes.

Interesting, and good to see a proper trip done on a 250cc - great stuff! I remember riding Freiberg to Lake Titisee a while ago - some great biking roads around there. I have a vague recollection that we went to a cuckoo clock museum in a place by the name of Furtwanger (or something similar) :)
