What I really dislike about the Indian FTR 1200...

flash also fixes that, with the countless amounts of money ive dumped into my bike, the tune was the best money spent.
Oh I agree entirely - news about getting a flash and who to get it from took a while to be broadcast down here, particularly in Adelaide. If it wasnt' for you guys I wouldn't have known.
it's just a shame some people returned their FTR because they didn't know what to do.

I've experimented with several - although Loydz is clearly the panacea. I'll probably stick it on the dyno and then if I change the exhaust, it'll without question be the Toce, so I'll contact Ryan at that point.

So weird. 6.30am this morning - ambient air temperature of 8°C, the thing ran perfectly from cold, no snatchiness, stalling or juddering - then so smoothly throughout my 28 mile commute, auto-blipping seamlessly on the downshift. The fuelling was perfect. No issues whatsoever. Yesterday, identical conditions, cut out twice when up to temperature. Bizarre.

I think that's a reference to the throttle blipping when downshifting. without a tune it's quite intense when you think you're slowing down the the bike auto blips the throttle and you speed up.
It's usually in synch and in time with the downshift - and something I instinctively do anyway - but you're absolutely right, the bike sometimes throws one in to make your day more interesting if it results in surging into a tight corners and situations.

I was not aware FTR did auto blipping, never had it on my bike, that's normally reserved for bikes with a quickshifter to aid the downshift on a closed throttle.

Absolutely - and you're right. IRC have a tried and tested unit.

Mine does it though...often randomly when it wants, but always on the downshift. Possibly fuelling issue/coincidental - but the ECU must surely be instructing it? I've read reports from other owners that it does it under braking. Significantly, this is also when it is prone to cutting out.

Mine was so bad when I got it…cutting out, blipping and racing forward, stalling at lights, cutting out around corners it was crap…I’ve said many times I was about to shove the thing up Indians ass. It was fucked. I told the dealer that this thing was gunna kill me or someone else. Worst bike I’ve ever owned off the showroom floor. But many tunes later and a an awesome TOCE exhaust and al la peanut butter sandwich it’s a fucken weapon….love it now…👍😎🇦🇺

Took me a single tune to eradicate all the quirks and foibles and whilst the TOCE is a lovely exhaust you don’t ‘need’ it as part of the package to achieve it!

I arrived very late to the tuning party having had my bike for 10 months. Yes the bike had quirks and foibles but I was reticent to spend any money getting it to run right. Max Cool and Ferraiolo1 were great advocates of the tuning services offered and we had differing opinions. I was wrong in my assumption the bike ran ok as it was! The bike was decatted at new from the off.

I eventually went with Fuelmoto USA and this was my first ever foray into the remote e-mail tuning service, I had always paid for dyno time and the use of a tuning specialist historically and mistakenly thought that was the best way to tune. The difference was profound.

If it is your intent to fit a TOCE Lloydz is your only choice. Both provide great service. Within three days of receiving my PV3 and downloading and sending off the files I received two maps to try. Fuelmoto also offer a lifetime map support so if you change anything with regards to emissions or have any issues you can 'Log' ride data send it to them and they will send you another map free of charge, but as stated they do not do TOCE.
