Any MAC or Snap-On truck/dealer has a universal calibration tool that will check the calibration. The issue is that if they are "off", they will probably not have parts if needed, or perhaps the ability to adjust if the tool is not their brand or a similar popular style tool. AngleRepair will do it for $25 and some shipping if you can part with it for a ...

Torque doesn't matter. It's power. The difference is that diesel engines have their peak power at lower RPM compared to petrol engines. Same power at lower RPM means more torque. (Think about: The motor of my car has max. torque of 95Nm. I torque the wheel lugs with 110Nm by hand. So why can the motor accelerate my car to 150km/h, while I can push it to ...

No, you do not need to remap your ECU This doesn't have anything to do with your air fuel ration and ignition timing. You are simply changing the gear ratio for your final drive. Making the sprocket larger will make all of your gears a bit shorter and reduce your top end speed. I typically do this on most of my motorcycles as it makes for better city ...

Changing your rear sprocket won't give you more mid range or change the engine power curve in any way. It will alter the torque at the rear wheel at all RPMs. The bike should accelerate faster through the gears but you will also loose out on top speed. You don't need to get dyno tuned just for changing a sprocket. He may however have been implying that to ...
