I recently purchased a completely stock '14 Diavel Strada and like many new owners, am trying to get use to the 'lumpiness' in performance at low speeds/rpms. It appears, from what I've read thus far, that OpenFlash is primarily for modifying the ECU/programming after making changes to the exhaust system.

Are there any maps available for gen 1 stock bikes to address the performance at low rpms?

Thanks for any thoughts.

    Yes, and you also get the other benefits, such as ability to reset the service light yourself.

    Absolutely worth it. It changed the bike completely for me. Ridding the "lumpiness" is worth it alone....

    Thank you both. To clarify, do they have a map specifically for a stock setup. From the website, its unclear that they do.

    In all honesty it's worth it just for the ability to scan and clear codes and service reminders. The tune definitely smooths out the low rpm jerkiness and you'll be set if you decide to get a different exhaust. They actually provide 4 tunes so you can pick which runs to your liking. Don't forget with openflash for gen1 diavel you get cruise control enabled as well which is a nice add-on.

    In spite of repeated attempts to reach Openflash via email, on-line chat, etc over the past couple of weeks, I have had no response.

    Are they still in business or is this fairly typical?

    In either case, I’m moving on to explore other options.

    Sincere thanks to those of you who replied to my posts and pm’s.
