I think so, did a lot of power mods at once makes it a little hard to tell but it definitely doesn't drop off like it used to after 11.5, it pulls all the way to 14Just got mine installed a few days ago. From what I notice, the top end is very noticeable. Before the Z-Bomb, the bike seems to plateau out about 12K. I didn't really want to go pass this point. With the Z-Bomb, the bike seems to want to keep accelerating all the way to red line. Is this how it should be? Or is it just in my head? If it's not in my head, then I'd say it well worth it. It's about the same cost as an 07-08 ECU at around 50 bucks. Installation was super easy. Hardest part was putting the fairing back on.
Ya in 5th or 6th after a certain rpm it cuts it from wot to 85% IIRCI forget the exact specifics, but I do believe the Z-Bomb *restores* the fueling map above ~12k in 2009 and newer 600RRs, this dip was introduced to meet emissions standards in Europe and not corrected or retuned for some years. I don't know if it still exists in the 2013 model or not.
The 09+ ecu's retard the ignition over about 12k rpm for emissions purposes. I believe it cuts the power by 15%. I've been told that the Z-Bomb tricks the ECU into thinking it doesn't need to retard the ignition, making it the same as the 07-08.can anyone tell me what the specifics are about the 07 ecu vs the 09 and does the z bomb just level them out so they are equal?
im going to be getting a dyno tune and want to have everything ready before it.
so its based on engine speed, not bike motion speed.The 09+ ecu's retard the ignition over about 12k rpm for emissions purposes. I believe it cuts the power by 15%. I've been told that the Z-Bomb tricks the ECU into thinking it doesn't need to retard the ignition, making it the same as the 07-08.
The 07-08 ecu doesn't have this restriction so it can be swapped for the same effect.
Definitely do one or the other before you dyno the bike.
