Bazzaz Z-Fi Fuel Controller Yamaha YZF-R6 An engine's 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 Engine Control Unit (ECU), intercepting the signal sent to the fuel injectors and changing it. The precise data for these changes are stored in the Z-Fi Fuel Controller in the form of a fuel map. The Z-Fi comes pre-programmed with an enhanced fuel map for power gains and improved throttle response. With a propper fuel map the rider can expect a smoother and more responsive throttle along with horsepower and torque gains. Motorcycles with any modifications (such as exhaust or high-flow filters) must have fuel tuned to accommodate the change in air to the AFR. Features Bazzaz Z-Mapper software makes it easy to view and easily adjust fuel maps Load and save fuel maps that are downloaded, manually edited, created on a dyno, or made with the Z-AFM air / fuel self mapper Switch fuel maps on the fly with the handlebar-mounted Bazzaz Z-Fi Fuel Map Switch Made in USA Note Please check local laws before purchasing a Bazzaz Z-Fi Fuel Controller. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

1. Buy the Bazzaz device
2. Get a dyno tuned map for your bike.
3. Ask yourself why you didn't do this sooner?
The throttle response is smooth and the hesitation is gone. I suggest a custom dyno tune VS a generic map. It is money well-spent in my opinion.
I was running the "competitors" Fuel Controller and would choose Bazzaz again. The software is easy to understand and the device is made of better quality.
I have the Map Switch and AFM... I like the idea of creating and having Two maps to switch on the fly.
My ECU is flashed, but I recommend keeping the Fuel Controller to make changes without paying for another ECU Flash.

Dainese Manis Back Protector The Manis Back Protector offers CE Level 2 Protection and the most advanced design characterizes this innovative back protector that breaks the classic design pattern and sets new ergonomic standards. Innovative construction solutions give the protector 3 more degrees of freedom than protectors of the past, thus allowing it to closely replicate all the shapes of the human back in typical motorcycle racing positions. The protector is capable of extending or retracting by bending, in this way following the movements of the torso. It is also able to bend and twist to follow the lateral bending movements of the body. The composite sandwich is the result of Dainese's 30 years of experience in the design of back protectors, the external plates with controlled elastic return movement are made of polypropylene and coupled to the Crash Absorb. A final layer of comfort material ensures precise coupling with the surface anatomy of the back. The protector is characterized by large perforations and very small surfaces in contact with the body to provide maximum thermal comfort, while the lightweight design completes the design harmony of this revolutionary back protection system. Protection Back protector certified according to the standard EN1621.2/2003 ( Level 2 ) Articulated external plates with controlled mobility, made of polypropylene with perforated and corrugated structure. Inner core in perforated Crash absorb Localized comfort padding Ergonomics and Comfort Back protector with 4 degrees of freedom 1 - Longitudinal stretch 2 - Longitudinal bending 3 - Torsion 4 - Lateral bending controlled by special tensioners External perforated plates Crash Absorb perforated absorption material Reduced contact area Sizing Sizing is dependent on both height and chest circumference. Height is measured from your shoulders to your natural waist, which will determine which Type is necessary. Chest circumference is measured at the widest point around your chest, usually just under the arm pits.

I wear this back protector with my Laguna Seca suit. The suit fit snug before and I was worried about a bulky back protector. There suit feels noticeably tighter with the back protector, but why would you wear a race suit without one? I have used this on several track days and on spirited canyon runs. The quality is standard Dainese, which means excellent. Not sure why the other reviewer had a problem, hope he figures it out. I am a recent convert to Dainese products after spending/wasting hundreds of dollars with cheaper brands. I suggest you buy the best gear you can afford, you don't want to save money at the expense of your health.

The details first. I am 5'8" and 166lbs. I wear size 32 jeans. Size 52 euro is just right.
I could've worn a size 50 without ever using a back protector. Initially, the suit felt snug, but I understand that is the idea of a leather suit. After a track day and several canyon rides, the suit feels more comfortable. I have spent a lot of money on the excuses for not wearing one piece leathers. I have ridden in textile, two piece leathers, and riding jeans, it is no surprise a one piece leather suit performs better and I would recommend one if you are undecided. I suggest a race base layer to help getting in and out of the suit. I will continue to buy Dainese products from Revzilla. Excellent quality and Excellent customer service.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Axial Pro In Boots The Axial Pro In Boots is the maximum expression of the Dainese technology and experience applied to a boot that offers the rider the highest levels of safety, comfort and functionality. Constructed of Lorica, D-Stone fabric, and leather, inside it displays the D-Axial system in Carbon and Kevlar, developed to reduce the risk of twisting the ankle and provide greater protection in case of impact in synergy with the sole, the shock absorbing heel, and the steel insert at the heel. Stainless steel sliders and nylon toe and outsole offer the rider additional elements of safety. Equipped with an interior tightening strap that helps avoid fracture and sliding off of the boot, and with the possibility for fastening to the inside of the pants, the Dainese Axial Pro In Boots become a perfect whole with the suit in order to reduce the risk of getting caught on foreign objects in case of fall and to improve riding precision, thanks to reduced dimensions, lower weight, and better aerodynamics.

My other boots are the SIDI Vortice Air. The Axial Pro fit slightly tighter than the same size in Sidi. That being said, I prefer the Dainese boot to the Sidi. Stylish, comfortable and the design is excellent. If you are used to AIR versions of boots, the lack of air flow is noticeable. I ride in Arizona and have used these at a track day, no regrets about the purchase.
The (IN) style of these boots work perfect with the Laguna Seca Pro Leather Suit.

Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants Drake pants will surely interest anyone who loves to ride his or her bike especially in the warmer months without wearing a suit or leather pants in order to obtain the protection required. These previously contrasting needs have now been perfectly reconciled by Drake fabric pants. Ample air vents in fretted fabric with closing on the thighs permit fresh air to enter during riding for cooling relief on even the hottest days. When temperatures begin to drop, the air vents can be closed. Safety is guaranteed by removable composite protections in the knee and shins, while extra-strength Cordura 750 fabric offers protection in case of fall. The elastic inserts in the knee optimize the wearability of the article, which is equally suited to metropolitan motorcycle use. Features Removable composite protectors. Cordura fabric 750. Suretta fabric. Perforated fabric. Insert in elasticated fabric. Soft inserts. Calf zip. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Adjustable waist. Sanitized lining.

I prefer leathers but in the summer I wear textile. These pants were my first dainese product and I'm impressed by the quality. Air flow or protection? One gives way to the other. These offer more protection and decent air flow. I have other "air" textile pants that flow more air but I prefer the drake pants because I feel confident with the level of protection.
Make sure you get a jacket that zips together with these for more "connection" while riding.
Also I ride in Arizona 100+ summer days and these pants are perfect.

I wear these pants on my daily commute. I paired them with the Tarmac jacket and it zips together for a perfect fit. I used to wear kevlar jeans because I didn't want to look like a racer lost from the track. These pants give a solid feeling between rider and bike, and I will never go back to jeans again. I have several REV'IT products and the quality is amazing. I am 5'9 180lbs and the size 54 fits a little loose but paired with a size 54 jacket they work great.

 Arai Corsair V Fiction Helmet
Arai Corsair V Fiction Helmet
Arai Corsair V Fiction Helmet The Corsair is Arais flagship model. An Arai helmet is not the product of compromise, of a profit point, or a board of directors. An Arai helmet is the product of obsession, an ongoing obsession to design and build the best helmets possible. This year Arai took the Corsair V Replica helmets to a new level. With several new features, youll see why the worlds best wear the Arai Corsair V Helmet. Arais exclusive, adjustable new AirWing is designed to greatly reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting resulting in more comfort and additional top-speed. The new wider eyeport required a new, wider faceshield. Called the Series I faceshield, it is exclusive to the Corsair-V. The new shield fits even more flush against the shell than the previous Corsairs. Newly equipped with Air In Stabilizer, an additional air intake between the front and rear intake in the diffuser and large toggles. The Air-In ports help accelerate air out the back, increasing airflow without increasing the size of the holes in the shell. The biggest difference between the newest generation of Arais Hyper-Ridge feature and its predecessors sticks right out at you Whereas the previous ridge curved in, this one flares out. This results in a larger opening at the helmets bottom, making the helmet easier to get on and off. Both cheek pads and the neck roll can be removed in seconds thanks to the advanced Emergency Release System. Rescue and medical workers can easily remove the newly designed removable neck roll and the cheek pads by just pulling the pad release tabs. This offers extra room within the helmet, making removal of the helmet much easier and minimizing the risk of additional injury. The Corsair-Vs neckroll is now removable and replaceable, and adds an additional exhaust vent through its bottom via shallow channels in the EPS liner, adding yet another ventilation outlet for the removal of interior air.

My previous helmet was from ICON and size LRG. After reading the Arai size chart and taking measurements I discovered that I should be wearing a size MED. I bought the Arai Corsair V in MED. The fit is perfect and I can assure that my next helmet will be from Arai.
I was the guy that bought top quality parts for my bike but not top quality gear. Be smart and buy the best gear you can afford.
