Bazzaz has just released their Z125 ZFi controllers, and we'll have the first units released. For those unfamiliar, having the ability to richen bikes, build custom maps, and tune unlocks the potential of all other aftermarket items such as exhaust and intake, adding both substantial performance and safe operation. Bazzaz is an American company and is at the forefront of EFI technology. We've used them and sold them for a long time, and know first hand how effective and user friendly these units are... As always, we'll be doing lots of testing and logging various custom maps for customer use shortly. http://www.mnnthbx.com/z125.html


Benefits

'Wakes up' performance
Crisp and responsive throttle
Smooths out throttle transitions
HP and torque gains

How it Works

Power is dependent on how well the air / fuel mixture is ignited in the cylinder.
Air / fuel ratio (AFR) is controlled by the Engine Control Unit (ECU).
Bazzaz fuel controllers piggy back onto the ECU, intercepting the signals sent to the fuel injectors and modifying them.
The precise data for these changes is stored in the fuel controller in the form of a fuel map.

Who needs it?

Every vehicle can benefit from fuel tuning.
Stock vehicles may come with an air/fuel mixture that can be too lean or too rich in various areas, affecting performance.
Vehicles with any modifications (such as exhaust or high-flow filters) must have their fueling tuned to accommodate the change in air volume to the AFR.
Variables in fuel tuning include: fuel blend or type, engine wear, exhaust, filter, engine modifications, air temperature, air pressure, and humidity.

Nice! Will you be making maps for various things you sell, like the Yosh pipe with or without your intake? I know a custom map is better, but a "generic" one is pretty darn close. How do you like Bazzazz? I've only ever used PowerCommander. Do they have an autotune function? I must start saving, LOL!

The base map is better than stock, but to answer your question, yes, we'll be building a library of maps, including just the Yosh, Yosh plus our nearly released intake, and various other popular combos...

By design, our business is a boutique shop, in that we limit what we sell to what we personally prefer to use. We've always preferred the Bazzaz slightly over the Power Commander, though they'll both work well and are the only two legitimate options in our opinion, despite the fact various brands will soon appear, imported, and lower costs... We'll always stand behind the Bazzaz because first and foremost we know how well it works, but additionally because of their ease of use, great support, quality, and the fact they're truly enthusiast driven...

Makes sense, thanks! I know a lot of folks who like Bazzaz! When I purchased my PowerCommanders, Bazzaz either wasn't out yet or was very, very new.

Mine is on the way. I'll make a video for sure!
thats awesome how does the 15T sprocket change the bike? like is it more torque or is it all top speed? also while i gotcha, when they make a BBK would you consider going that route? i only ask because i'm a viewer and i like to see what work for you before i buy stuff myself. i'm gonna try out the intake you got after seeing it on yours for instance. anyway thanks for the videos you gotta a subscriber

15T, to me, seems to make the engine work too hard without benefit. The 13T is fun for hooning around but bounces off of the limiter too much. I do have to say that stock, in my configuration is perfect for my riding. I'll keep playing but stock is where it's at.

Big bore? Naaa. I don't foresee that. I don't want to have to maintain the bike at that level.

Just installed my Bazzaz Zfi. Just wow it has a crisp throttle all the way to 10k rpms. It is very smooth rolling on and off throttle. From 7-10k rpms it just pulls so much more, its great. I managed 68 mph at the rev limiter on a flat road. Also the install was very easy, took about 20 minutes to install.
Great to hear! Just wait until we start mapping for basic upgrades. Should get fun really soon!

Just got another load of Bazzaz units in stock. Our Mtake is complete not (will release next week), so we'll have some maps for this great package very soon. Even on the base map, all feedback has been great on the Z variant Bazzaz. Customers have repeatedly seen smoother on/off throttle transition and a substantial top end increase.

That's been my experience so far, but I gotta feeling you guys are gonna wring out something even better from these setups. Still looking for your name to pop up in the Bazzaz map upload page lol.

good video

I started to think how many more wires do you need to connect to get that tuner installed, but then had to remember its way easier to tune then a carb

no more fiddling with taking out a carb, get gas all over and buying jets
doing test drives over and over and over to see which jet gives the best performance


So put in a little time to install it, then thats it
rest is taken care of electronically

Agreed. After decades of jetting bikes, I personally was a bit intimidated the first time I got into FI. Didn't take long to overcome any fears. You can add a Bazzaz in the same amount of time it takes to jet a bike, then every future "jetting" takes 2 minutes and no tools. There's no going back.
