That 8 year old RT is cleaner than my '21 with only 9,000 miles on it.. lol... and I think I clean it too much... bravo on keeping it looking that great and riding it as well.

Thank you sir... we will never forget!Cheers,
Not as much riding as I would like at the moment, but that will change..
It was a post deployment present to myself after working with the 438th AEW.
I like tinkering as much as the riding. Having RT OCD for detailing is also something that I enjoy.
So win win for me, but I know most just enjoy the riding and that's ok too.
I FINALLY got around to uploading my Stage1 tune as well.Alright, I've got about 150km on since I flashed the stage 1 tune this afternoon. I was really wondering if I'd be able to notice any difference or not. It was 100% noticeable. The bike feels smoother and pulls harder. This is only with a full exhaust. I did purchase the Sprint air filter which they claim will add 3 or 4hp, but I did not install it. I just had my bike all ripped apart this winter and installed a brand new OEM filter. It only has 700km on it! I think what I'll do is wait until next season and install the air filter and velocity stacks at the same time, and flash to stage 2. Something to look forward to...
Keep in mind, the butt dyno is only so accurate, and placebo is a real thing. But I can say quite confidently that the bike feels better. It feels smoother and more eager when I get on the throttle heavy.
I wish mine worked, i would love to play my music off that but it works very intermittently, My local BMW dealer claims they have never heard of any problems with them so basically ignored me.Added a square of velcro to the end of the USB/audio cable. Keeps the cable and compartment organized.

Nice! I'm still liking mine as well. Are you running headers? Aftermarket slip-on?I FINALLY got around to uploading my Stage1 tune as well.
Yes, the bike IS smoother, I dont feel as much vibration in my legs tucked onto the fairing at all, much better.
The exhaust sound is different as well, more velvety...I dunno, but I like it.
Cold idle is lower.
1st to 2nd gear shift assist, is more civilized as well.
And it pulls stronger too.
Dyno in June because why not.
No other mods, nope. I see no reason to be louder.Nice! I'm still liking mine as well. Are you running headers? Aftermarket slip-on?
Oh, interesting. I assumed most people doing the tune would be doing so because of performance upgrades. Cool to hear that you noticed a difference without any supporting mods!No other mods, nope. I see no reason to be louder.
You notice a decrease in fuel economy? I definitely did...lolYa, totes.
That's not my idea of fun100 miles of pouring rain and 660 total from Paris, TN to Dallas, TX.
You notice a decrease in fuel economy? I definitely did...lol
That was the last day, the previous 3 were fun... lolThat's not my idea of fun
