Well, according to the Rottweiler (the parts company, not the dog) video, it's a relatively simple process. Mind you, didn't fancy doing it myself...
Remember, when you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It is only painful for others.
The same applies when you are stupid.

All done


S'very nice :smt003

Smooth from top to bottom of rev range, powerful and fairly loud :smt001

Picked it up, got 5 minutes up the road, turned round and took it back as the quickshifter had stopped working! Took a bit of convincing for the remapped ECU to understand where the gears should be but all is good now

Powerful and fairly loud ticks a lot of boxes !
KTM sell many fairly brisk bikes but the ECU's seem a bit slow to catch on to preening and massages given to the peripherals and sometimes spit out the dummy.....
Usually an easy fix with a smartphone,tablet or laptop
Glad you got rid of the bloatware :smt002
