______________________________________________________________________________

Since 2017, research and development has been an ongoing investment into my Concours 14 programming !!

Our own continuous software development includes reverse engineering all the stock C14 ECUs
(all years and all markets) for this bike, dyno tuning, and riding tests for flawless driveability.

My exclusive software & tuning experience is what offers you the best result possible for your ZG1400 Concours 14.

This offers you the most refined feeling, smoothest, most powerful, best driveability, best fuel economy
than you will find in any other ECU flash offering for your Concours 14..

Things that you will notice immediately from my programming.

• Engine revs instantly and responds immediately to any type of throttle input. (especially small inputs)
• Engine runs noticeably cooler - a lot less heat from engine - a big plus for this bike (especially 2008-2009 models)

• Not a hint of jerky/jumpy throttle anywhere in the rpm range.
• Changing gears is dramatically improved.
• Dramatic power increase from right off idle to redline.

My Kawasaki Concours 14 ECU programming (Re-Flash) includes the following:



1) Fix all fueling problems inside the ECU.

(The ones that cannot be fixed with an external fuel tuner or other commercially available methods)

• All gear dependent maps fixed
• Main fuel tables (A/n) - adjusted specifically for your exhaust at all active throttle positions.
• Vacuum tables (MAP)- adjusted specifically for your exhaust in all active areas.
• Emissions compliant sub-routines that affect driveability - turned off.
• All system response delays (detuning items) - turned off.
• Acceleration enrichment thoroughly tested and re-adjusted for perfect response.
• Update air temperature correction settings in 2014 and older models for better fuel mileage in cold weather.
• Optimize injector timing for best power, response, mileage and combustion efficiency.
• O2 sensors disabled - No need to unplug, or can be removed if desired.

Includes fueling changes specific to your exhaust !!
External fuel tuner not needed - just plug in and go !!


2) Disable fuel cut - ie; Jerky throttle - (ours exclusively)

Don't know what "fuel cut" is?

Live datalog Disabled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7i2vCGnyuGk

• Engine stays running when the throttle is closed.
   With stock ECU programming, the injectors are not running when you decel.
   (please see the demonstration videos above)

• Gets rid of poor, imprecise throttle transitions from closed throttle.

• Eliminates all feelings of driveline lash and jerky, delayed throttle response.

• Changing gears is dramatically improved. Without fuel cut disabled, there is no "neutral throttle"
  This is the direct cause of your touchy, jerky throttle because the engine isn't running during decel.

• Dramatic improvement upon re-application from closed throttle in all riding conditions.
  (Throttle re-application response feels like our old carbureted bikes used to feel)

• No need for a different throttle tube ratio to try to prevent jerky response.
  (which it cannot do anyway)

• Gets rid of annoying popping and banging when re-applying the throttle from closed.

3) Close AIS valve electronically

• No need for block-off plates for air injection system
• No popping on decel !!
• No hoses to plug - Just plug in your ECU and go !!


4) Cooling Fan comes on at 195 degrees and goes off at 186

• Helps keep engine cooler when you are riding at low speeds.

5) Reprogram sub throttles for best response and to remove power restrictions

• This allows a more sensitive throttle that is easy to control.

• Allows all of the 1400 engine's available power - whenever you ask for it.

• Gives immediate engine response to the throttle with no restrictions.

• Low rpm power is dramatically improved, while preserving fuel economy.

• Response delay filters turned off - part of original detuning

6 ) Complete custom re-curve of ignition timing


• Set main timing tables for maximium power and driveability across the entire rpm range and all throttle positions.
   This also helps provide better fuel economy, and less vibration when cruising and moderate acceleration.

• All gear dependent maps equalized and adjusted for best power and fuel economy.

• All emissions compliant /detuning sub-routines turned off.


Reprogram VVT system for best power and fuel economy

CLICK HERE TO SEE MY VVT PAGE FOR DETAILS AND VVT FUNCTION DESCRIPTION !!



Raise rev-limiter 500 rpm - Optional

This is optional, and can be left out if you prefer - just indicate it on our Concours 14 form when you send us your ECU.

• With my programming, which includes VVT cam timing adjustments, the Concours 14 is still making good power until 10,500 rpm.
   (as can be seen in our dyno charts below.)


• Raising the limiter on this engine (500 rpm) up to 10,500 rpm allows the power to continue with my ecu programming.


7) Reduced heavy engine braking on decel.

•More relaxed gear changes and throttle modulation at all speeds.

•Chassis is more stable because bike doesn't pitch back and forth on it's
suspension when throttle is closed and re-applied.

• More stability when entering a turn.

• Slowing down is relaxed and natural feeling... Not like you just hit
the brakes.



8) Improved fuel economy
• 50+ mpg on this model when riding modestly

9) Reduced running temperatures
• Coolant temps average appx 25 degrees cooler than with stock programming
• Dramatic reduction of heat flow from radiator that cooks you while riding in traffic


10) All power & speed limiters removed

11) All driveability inhibitors removed
Concours 14 engine revs instantly, and offers fantastic fuel economy too !!

12) Free updates when/if we make improvements.
(shipping not included)
**UPDATED 1-2020 - Engraving will read "B2" on the back of your ECU **

12a) Free updates if you change your exhaust.
(shipping not included)

13) Return your ecu back to stock at no charge for any reason.
(shipping not included)

14) Anything that compromises performance and/or driveability is eliminated.

Includes fueling changes specific to your exhaust
External fuel tuner not needed - just plug in and go !!

All testing and tuning was done in house on my personal ZG1400 Concours shown above !!


Dyno tuning not necessary !!

We reprogram for USA and Canada !!


Ivan's Performance ECU flash is for CLOSED COURSE COMPETITION USE ONLY !!
ECU reprogramming may not comply with federal safety/emission laws !!

See my Concours 14 Dyno Charts Below
If you need help understanding these charts or anything else on this page,
Please don't hesitate to give us a call - We are happy to speak with you in person and help you.

My charts for this bike are all redone with my new dyno.

All my ECU tuning files for the Concours 14 have been updated on my new dyno as well.
(Updates completed December 2019)


All dyno tests performed with 92 octane, 10% ethanol premium pump fuel with no additives
 


Stock Exhaust Result


All Stock Concours 14 ECU vs. Ivan's ECU programming - This test shown with stock exhaust










Slip-on Test Results


Adding a slip-on exhaust to this bike adds a significant amount of power above 5500 rpm.




Adding Ivan's ECU programming to the bike just releases all the potential that this engine has,
and adds 11 ft/lb of torque at 3000 rpm, 4 hp at peak, and another 1000 rpm of "hard pull" to the powerband when you want it.







Stock muffler vs. slip-on...... both w/Ivan's ECU programming

This chart is to show that gains from changing the muffler are basically the same, flashed or not !!
Both of these runs have the fueling corrected because they both have my programming.








All stock vs. final slip-on result -

A 15 ft/lb torque increase at 3000 rpm, 12hp increase at peak, and 20hp at 10,000 rpm.







Full exhaust tests

AreaP Full exhaust

This exhaust clearly produces the most power on this bike, it was designed specifically for the C14 with no limitations.
The results speak for themselves.... more power for this bike than any other exhaust above 3000 rpm

25 HP @ 9500 rpm
33 HP @ 10,000 rpm

95 TQ @3500 rpm
106 TQ @6100 rpm






No losses above 3000 rpm compared to a tuned slip-on exhaust.







2006-2007 ZX14 header with dual slip-on mufflers

This setup is a great option if you desire
dual exhaust, and want a full exhaust that offers unrestricted performance.
The parts to make it fit can be found on Ebay from specialty manufacturers, or you can make them yourself.

This chart shows the ZX14 header/slip-on vs. stock header/slip-on - Both with my ECU programming
It gives up almost nothing at low rpm, and gains significantly above 5000 rpm...

Still not as much as a race exhaust system at peak, but a fantastic compromise between the two !!



 

This chart shows the ZX14 header/dual slip-on/Ivan's ECU programming combination vs. an all stock C14
16ft/lb torque increase at 3000 rpm, 17hp at peak, and 26 hp at 10000 rpm .



All stock vs Delkevic header & Ivan's ECU programming
