Post RapidBike Easy Air/Fuel module

I have been using this A/F module on my R1200GSA - and i really enjoy the way it has improved smoothness in the low RPM range and overall response.





I contacted Dimsport regarding a unit for the Bobber:

I had the RapidBike installed today.
It made the changes i was hoping for without any negative effects at all.

The bike is much more tractable at very slow moving/traffic speeds. At times when neither 1st nor 2nd gear felt ' right ' without clutch slip, I can now leave it in 1st or even 2nd with no hesitations or jerkiness. Just smooth drive from the bottom of the RPM range.

The install was easy. All i had to do was have a coffee and watch
But seriously, it took about 20 mins from start to finish which entailed taking off the tank, routing the cables and finding a nice spot for the module. It is completely hidden by the tank, but i can still access it if i want to change the trim settings without dismantling anything (just by using my finger). If you lie down next to the bike, you can see the module under the left side of the tank.

Overall i am VERY happy with this little box and I recommend it highly to anyone thinking about getting one.

What does this thing really do? And, what does it cost?

If I change my exhaust, remove the cat and do a remap - would this then make the bike better or would it just be a 155 euro lottery card?

That's NOT what it's for.
It's not a remap (well, not the EASY model like I bought anyway)
It will simply make your bike smoother in the closed loop range (low RPM) by changing readings and giving a better air/fuel mixture.

For a proper remap you'll need a professional and a rolling road (something I feel the Bobber doesn't need...)

I have friends who use the rapidbike pro models in the U.K. , but they have access to rolling roads and have the inclination to play with the trim ratios via a dedicated program. I do not. I like to turn the key and ride.

This is my 3rd Rapidbike module and it is by no means a lottery card. I would not waste my time or other forum members by posting trash.

And how will that make the bike run smoother ?
All rain mode does is change the way the power is delivered...! It does not change the A/F ratios and won't make the bike smoother in the very low RPM ranges (closed loop).
In fact, rain mode doesn't even change the amount of HP available (like on a Ducati Multistrada or Diavel). It just restricts throttle input and makes it less sensitive. Not what I'm looking for, as my wrist can modulate that.

Ah, okay. I was just thinking about a smoother run at slow speeds in heavy traffic or so. For that the rain mode makes it a bit easier.
Thank you for explaining this properly. This Rapidbike modification is news for me.

For a bit more cash you could get a pcv & change fueling over whole throttle position & rpm range yourself.
