1st real ride w/143cc kit installed

Put 100 miles on the Z this weekend with a few good rides on the Bucks County (PA) backroads, finally getting some decent weather to break in my 143cc top end job. If anybody knows the area here, it's around New Hope, which is a very popular place for bikers to ride to. The photo was taken at Dilly's where I stopped for lunch, north of New Hope.

In any case, I got the MNNTHBX 143 kit installed and a starter map loaded into my PC-V, did a couple of runs to get the AutoTune dialed in, and headed out. Very impressive so far. But still some rough spots, so I have a dyno session scheduled locally for tomorrow.

If anybody is interested, I can post a full write-up of my experience installing the 143 kit, along with the dyno results still to come...

I'm interested. I have a 143 kit sitting in my basement and a brand new Z to install it on... The tune is my biggest hangup. Not sure if I should go Hoedar (again), PCV or ARacer.

The smart move would be to run our Bazzaz with that perfect map pre-loaded. It's spot on, and builds huge power.

I'm not sure if I agree with this. It's like buying a race suite off the internet. It might be close, but hard to get 'perfect' without a tailored fit. Whole point of a fuel controller is a map specific for the bike and elevation. Sure, it's a mini bike and probably doesn't make a whole lot of difference, but it just feels like I'd be leaving chips on the table.

There's variables for sure, but if you're below 2000' and running the 143, the map is a winner. Probably the most praised map we have honestly. Even if it were off, it would be stupid close, and a safe place to start your own tuning from.
