You may gain a little on the top. It does help smooth out the the torque curve and gives much better throttle response. I gained some fuel miliage on my gen 2.

I'm just hopin to feel the difference. Not mega but noticable. My bike seems to ave a flatspot between 3-5k rpm. Mpg gain will be bonus to but doubt I'd notice to well

A basic downloaded map off internet is no where near as good as a custom dyno tune by a reputable tuner at a shop.
Anywhere up to 10whp gain over a internet map. Every bike is different and your elevation relation to sea level makes a huge difference. A map made for a bike at sea level in dry air will run differently on a bike 1500ft above sea level and in damp/humid conditions.

You'll get a smoother power delivery being able to put more power down and quicker. Sounds like suspension upgrades and or tuning would be a better use of your money.

I'd like a zx14 brake setup next and a good set of tires for my bike. I read that they still need spacers an the disc rotors is 10mm difference. Is this true or has ppl replaced with no mods?
