Guys is anyone going to Loring ME next week? And if so did you have your bike flashed and ditch the cat?

I am up here with my H2 & there is also an H2R here. I saw him run 193, not sure if he ran faster than that today. I got one licensing pass in on the H2, was supposed to do 150, but ran a little over at 167 in the mile. Trying to get some time on the Ducati also.

Good luck man! Let us know how you do! I love it there. I was trying to get ready and head up but it's not gonna happen this year..... Is your bike flashed? And how about a pipe and cat?

Still on my way home (2000 miles), I think I had six runs on the H2, best was 184. All I can say is this thing is a beast and it will be a while before I can go much faster. It starts so violently, but once you get to fourth things seem to level out, but you are then going 160 and have other things to focus on.
I did set two other records on my Ducati 749, so got three for the weekend.

Well done on the Ducati records Ed. Keep going on the H2, you'll get there, it's getting lonely here in the +200 club. ;)

H2R performance in the Colorado mile

I took my H2R to the Colorado Mile this past weekend and was disappointed as ****. There was another H2R there also. I made 3 licensing passes to get my A license then made 9 more passes. They had 1/4, and 1/2 mile speeds also. I had the throttle pinned just before the 1/4 hitting 149 then remaining pinned and tucked, 175.9 at the 1/2 then the extreme disappointment, every pass at full pinned throttle for the mile was 186.7 to 188.6 [had a tailwind, LOL]. They were duplicates of each other. The other H2R hit 209, and 205 consistently for his 4 passes after his licensing. On the computer my boost max at the end of the run ranged from 111 - 121. The other H2R ranged from 145 - 149. Top speed on his registered at 219mph, mine at 200mph. I don't know if I have an H2 ECU in this thing or the dealer switched it with an H2 for some reason but I was extremely disappointed. I contacted the Kawasaki H2R hotline this am, and they had no idea other than dealer switched it or it was sent with the wrong ECU.

I thought I read where the R's ecu limited it's top speed to 205. My guess is you need to contact Don Guhl for help. I can't imagine a dealer swapping Ecu's and it would be pretty obvious if they had ordered a stock H2 ecu at the same time your bike came in. For what it is worth, the H2R that ran at Loring last weekend ran a top speed of 196. Interestingly, a 2014 BMW hp4 with a flash ran 197. I still think the aerodynamics are the problem, my Ducati with about half the horsepower of my H2, ran almost 150 mph. As for registered top speed, mine showed 189 for the last half mile, but never made it through the timing lights faster than 184.

I really doubt anyone switched an ECU on ya.Difficult to imagine Kawasaki putting the wrong one in there as well...they dyno these before shipping.They would see that immediately.What's the part number on it?

I received the ECU number from Kawasaki and it matches the ECU in the bike. I am sending to Guhl in the am. Hopefully he can see what tune is in it before he puts the new one in. The other H2R ran 182.3 in the 1/2 mile on his 209 pass. I think it was actually 208.6 or 7. His last 3 or 4 passes were all over 203. Flashed HP4 and a 1199R ran also. I believe the R was 171 - 173 and the HP4 I believe was 180. Owned by the same person. He rode them both.

I think Ed is correct, I'd also heard that the H2R is limited to 205 until the ECU is "unlocked" by someone like Don Guhl.

Jayski, please let us know how this is resolved and anything you learn about the H2R ECU.

Here is my recorded speed pic after my fastest run.


Is there a memory recall on the speed and boost on the Bike? If so how do you get to it?

The H2 does have an Event Data Recorder, meant to preserve information in the case of an accident. This is constantly overwritten and cancelled once the ignition is switched off, except in the case of an accident. So my handbook says!

They also say special equipment is needed to interrogate the EDR and it can only be done by Kawasaki. I wonder if this was what we saw in the photos from Losail at the launch, there was one of an H2R showing 220?

Wonder now IF it'd be possible to load that program into an H2 ECU?The basics are most likely already in there...possibly just a click on a keyboard to enable?
