Ninja H2 Rev Limits and Throttle-By-Wire Restrictions
Ghul Motors has been working hard to come out with a reflash for the H2’s ECU. Keep track of their efforts as they move forward.
I've been reading through this site over the last couple weeks as we start down the long and very tedious journey of defining the code in these new powerful and amazing ECUs. I've seen many posts of guesswork on what is going on with these bikes with many excellent theories. As we progress with our testing, if there is interest, we can post factual information regarding the operation of these bikes. I say factual, because the code does not lie...
Garth posted earlier that the H2 is highly restricted, but left out details of how restricted it really is. It should be no secret that all new street legal bikes have restrictions of some sort. They are there to pass the smog and noise emissions standards. Power makes noise, so to reduce noise, it's basically a larger muffler or less power... Unfortunately, the mufflers are about as big as they can get.
The rev limit of the H2 is ~13000 RPM. The H2R is ~14000 RPM. With centrifugal superchargers, the boost rises with engine speed, so the H2R already has a boost advantage with the extra RPMs.
I believe that the real secret to the restrictions of the H2 are the throttle-by-wire maps. Check out the main (full power) map from the H2 ECU. The x-axis is the accelerator position and the data of the map is the commanded throttle position of the actual throttle plates. As you can see, after 10000 RPM, the throttles close down pretty quickly!
The good news is: It looks like we should be able to correct the rev limits and the throttle-by-wire restrictions.
I'll post more information as we move forward...

MOTO-D Kawasaki H2 Single Sided Swingarm Stand
Joining a number of brands to come out with a stand for the H2 so far, MOTO-D has come out with their very own single sided swingarm stand, currently in stock.
Whether you`re interested in the development of the clear plastic protective covers originally mention or need ideas on what direction to go on this vital accessory, you`ll find this
discussion to be resourceful
The moment the first H2 arrives with us (within the next day or two) we have got a local decal manufacturer coming in to measure up the tank to get templates to produce adhesive clear plastic protective covers for the top of the tank (from the filler cap back to the seat) and the two sides of the tank where your knees will rub.
No idea on pricing yet, but it won't be stupid - who might be interested in something like this for their own bike and are there other areas of the bike you would like to protect ?
