2011 Vista Kawasaki ZX-10R – Part One: ECU Re-Flash by Guhl Motors

2011 Vista Kawasaki ZX-10R – Part One: ECU Re-Flash by Guhl Motors

Now affectionately known as the ‘Vista’ ZX-10R , in honor of our local dealership and partner in this project, we embark on a knowledge gaining expedition which immediately alerts us to 25+ MISSING HORSEPOWER in the name of Bureaucracy and red tape?! Of course, we could just follow the path of the Internet/least resistance, purchase the cure and go riding, but that’s not how we do it at Dragbike.com. Knowledge is not only power – it’s performance, and we plan to wring every ounce of it from the Vista ZX-10R. Years of experience dictate the necessity to know why we are making changes so that we may better understand the next.

Our initial homework is finished, and we hope you enjoy our video report below:
