    Yes, this will be requested via email unless I already have the notes from you. I can't track info like this here. ;)

    Good morning,
    I'm falling in love with the 85TT travel, and really considering it as my next bike. I'd love to add this kit but I have well noted that it is only available for 19-20 models(EU4) and my local dealer only have the 2021 model.
    Will this kit be one day compatible with the 2021? Or is there any potential limitation that won't make it possible for the EU5 model?

    The ECU is different/new compared to the 19/20s, so it will take a little time for the R&D to be done. They are locking the ECU down more and more each year. The way the EVO kit works, I can't imagine it won't become available.

    If it's designed by man, it can be broken by man. In due time, especially if the market demands for it, someone will get access to the Euro5 ECU.

    While it's a small and lame request, it would be great if there was a way to reset the service icon without going the the dealer.

    My Review of the EVO. Installed it along with the SAS kit and did the evap mod. Currently running the GTM Y-Pipe and Meg as well. After installing the EVO, the bike seems to run really well with much improved start up as well as a decrease in popping from the exhaust during down shifts and deceleration. The bike also seems to get better fuel mileage. The only downside to the install is that my check engine light is on. Todd thought it was due to a faulty pigtail on the SAS delete kit and sent me a new one. After installing the new pig tail the light remained on for a while then turned off. The following day the check engine light came back on and has remained on for about 100 miles. Todd has recommended to have the codes read. Not sure what the fix is but it is important to me that this light works as I commute around 60 miles a day and if there is a real issue I need to know about it. The overall performance of the bike with the EVO is much improved and really seems to run well. Ill be taking the bike in to the dealer to have the code read this coming weekend. Hopefully all will be resolved soon and I can enjoy the bike with its improved performance without worry.

    Are there any other engine mods available for the 2021? Can they be re mapped with a power commander?

    First, congrats on the TT, and welcome the GT Forum. I merged your post with this thread that outlines what is currently available for the V85TT. Read from the top. Always try a search before starting a new thread... see the paragraphs in red at the top of the page.

    Same question from me, having just bought a new 2021 model I am a tiny bit disappointed as it does not run as well as the bike i tested. Maybe as it is still running in ???
    It would not pull the skin off a rice pudding bellow 3000 rpm and the roll on throttle is sluggish.

    It may be a silly thing to mention, but verify the ride mode you are in. There is a big difference between "rain" and "sport" modes, in terms of power delivery.

    Yep you are spot on. It is a very silly thing to say.

    Can't hurt to check. Some people have no clue how such features work and can't be bothered to look at an owners manual. But, as with troubleshooting any other problem, always have to rule out the simplest stuff first.

    As for:

    Not likely. Any power differences before/after break-in should be trivial at best. The most notable item accomplished would be bedding in the piston rings. If you're rings are really out-of-whack, then I would expect you'd be seeing excessive oil consumption as well. A spark plug check might offer a clue about that.

    I have ordered a V-Twin booster but will be taking the bike back before I fit it as it is as lumpy as f%$k bellow 3000 and a couple of times when accelerating even in higher revs it just cuts out for a nano second. Not good when over taking.

    I talked to Andrew recently and him and I have the same issue. Intermittent CEL for no apparent reason. Bike runs phenomenally whether the light is on or off though, so I just ride it.

    Cables are on order to pull the fault code so I can hopefully further diagnose the issue.
