F-Pro Electronic TRE - eliminate old school plugin TRE.

This F-Pro SV1000 Torque flash -  with our included electronic TRE:

 improves lowend response for better low speed
increases midrange grunt for better 2 up and better corner exits
 and more topend - well, for better topend

and with subtle secondary butterfly map mods,
decreases the stock, harsh engine compression braking and softens on-off throttle operation for nicer "light throttle" manners.

Smoother, stronger, quicker and just plain, nicer.

$375 for semi-custom Torque flash

Teka MMT Module
EZ tune MMT (adj. memory module) Power Tube

1 MMT module + shipping
Additional notes for seller
MMT Power Switch

After tuning with a Teka SFI 2,
you can use this optional module to fine fine adjust fueling with a screwdriver adjustable rotary switch.

MMT plugs right in to the bikes tuning port (same as the SFI).

If tuning with the SFI 2 / MMT combination:
The MMT is plugged into the bike, the SFI 2 is plugged into the MMT and all tuning settings from the SFI 2 are stored in the MMT and automatically transferred to the bike.
After SFI tuning, the SFI is removed and the MMT is left on the bike.
Then, for any fine tuning or adjusting after you maybe change air filters or similar or high altitude or a lot of freeway riding, you can just tweak the MMT Power Select Switch to a different number.
"5" = "as tuned with the SFI 2
"6" to "9" = incrementally richer
"4" to "1" = incrementally richer
"0" = "All zero ECU settings

If tuning with the MMT only (without custom SFI tuning):
If just installing an MMT without SFI custom  retuning, just installing the MMT will allow you to adjust, globally, incrementally richer or leaner with the Power Select rotary switch.

If you first install an MMT and decide the have it custom tuned with the SFI 2,  no problem.
Just plug the SFI 2 into the MMT's Tuning port and tune that perfect map.

Then, you still have the ability to "trim" map for conditions with the Power Select Switch - and you even have, by setting it at "0", to recheck how the "zero" map was in comparison to your "SFI Tuned Map". 

EZ install - all stock connectors, no splicing.

Evo Shift STAR kit - Kit for shift improvement (maybe like a "night and day" improvement?

SHFT-EVO-S93-KT  $199.95
(includes Evo Shift STAR, FP Spring and gasket. New arm not needed)

1. Choose your shipping method


I installed your shift kit in my SV1000s and it made a major improvement in shiftin

Evo Shift STAR Kit
Includes Factory Pro's AWESOME Evo Shift STAR - Totally changes the rough in town shifting the Suzuki's are known for into the sweetest shifting bike - The one you've always wanted!
In town shifting is effortless and slick - on track or when high speed - a shift is a light tap and it's done. No bike "unsettling".

 last lap, last corner, 40 mph, two wheel drift... passing on the outside, bike carefully controlled by just the subtlest of weight transfer and just a "fingers touch" on the throttle... you run out of rpm and need to upshift to complete the pass.... you need to shift.... it's ok.... a tap and you are in the 4th, still in a drift....... you keep slightly pulling... around.... slowly win...... 

Or just remember how clunky the shifting is around town.......

Factory Pro designed, refined and manufactured Shift STAR, heavy duty detent spring and gasket. Makes shifting quicker and more positive - "virtually" eliminating those nasty missed shifts, upshifts and downshifts. The stronger detent spring rotates the shift drum quicker, so the gears are more likely to engage under quick shift conditions - and those occasional "lazy" ones we all do sometimes, too -
The Factory Pro Microbearing Detent Arm removes friction for the quickest shifting.
The EVO STAR? Makes it AWESOMELY nice.
The closest to a "paddle shifter" for a motorcycle that you will ever find!!

The EVO Shift STAR kit is the below Pro Shift Kit, with the addition of the Factory Pro Evo STAR.

Great Product!
I just installed my Detent Star & wanted you to know it transformed how my TL shifted! no more miss-shifts.
Thanks - Brian Kirner

Air Filter, BMC


BMC air  filter system

depending on model

Drop in a Factory Pro BMC air filter and add a horse or so at high rpm. Really. You can clean it, too!
The stock FI system recognizes the decreased inlet restriction (higher pressure) and automatically adds a teeny bit more fuel to compensate. At least it compensates in the general "right" direction. We haven't seen any drivability problems caused by the filter - but if you were to dial in the stock ECU with the Teka SFI programming tool (not an add-on box that stays on the bike), your bike will be better - even w/o changing the air filter.....
Does not work well with power commander.

Designed by the same Italian craftsmen that developed Ferrari's F1 Air Filters - this filter filters well, flows more air and lets the engine make more power than the stock air filter.

TECH Information:

Thermostat The coolant thermostat controls the minimum coolant temperature.

It doesn't raise the maximum coolant temperature, only the lowest temperature allowed by the thermostat.

The TL's that we've worked with had a running range of ~40f - from 165f-170f cruising down the highway on a cool day to 200f-205f in ~25mph traffic at <3000rpm. At that spread of temperatures, the TL's FI system didn't correct adequately, allowing rich and lean problems to appear and disappear as the coolant temp changed.

There are several solutions if there is are tuning problems caused by excessive coolant temp range.

Replacing the thermostat with a higher minimum temp unit, perhaps 185f. Easy to do.

The water pump doesn't pump much below 3000rpm, so "blipping" the throttle above 3k occasionally when in traffic helps move the coolant through the radiator and lower the temp - decreasing the coolant temperature.

Backfire under Decel (persistent) Air cannot be allowed to enter the exhaust port. If there are ports that bleed air through the head into the port, plug them.
Gear Indicator Resistance So, you heard something about "Big Pink"? As measured on 1998 TL1000R, in-house unit: Gear and indicator resistances as follows:
1st: 567 ohms
2nd: 827 ohms
3rd: 1.5k ohms
4th: 2.7k ohms
5th: 6.81k ohms
6th: 14.97k ohms
(urban legend says a 15k resister is 5th gear - it's NOT!!)
If you want to fool the ECU into thinking it's in one gear or another, you could jump a resistor across the 2 wires on the main harness that would normally go to the gear indicator unit at the end of the shift drum.
As an example. If you wanted to trick the ECU into thinking that the bike was in, say 4th gear, you would place a 2.7k ohm between the appropriate wires. Don't call us and ask any more about it - it's up to you to use this information as based on facts, rumor, intuition, wishes and desires......
Also, the resistance values seem to be identical to the 98-99 GSXR750 - and the 00-02 gsxr750 and the gsxr1000's....


Shifting Tech - gearbox secrets
(or Marc Salvisberg gives it up......)

So.... you've looked at gearboxes for years and  inside the cases, they look pretty much the same.
Every brand's transmissions feel and work differently, model to model and even specifically, bike to specific bike.
One reason?

Check this part out -
If the Arms are centered, the trans tends to shift equally well, up or down.

If the fingers are closer to the pin that the shift shaft arm needs to grab to downshift, downshifts will be "quicker" and vice versa.

  This is good.

The pins are centered between fingers when the shift shaft is at rest.

If you look closely at the LH picture, you can see that I shimmed up the shift shaft centering stud with a folded business card, ~.024" offset made the difference.

  This is not so good.

The pins are not centered between fingers when the shift shaft is at rest.

If they don't drop down fully, beyond the "pins", that prevents the "fingers" from dropping down and getting ready for the next shift.

If you've got issues - check.



Adjustable Center Shift Stud, 8mm       $24.95

(and possibly others that use 8x125mm threaded "fixed" stud)

1. Choose your shipping method


If the shift shaft fingers aren't centered on the shift shaft, Factory Pro has the fix.

It's a special 8mm thread, offset "centering" stud, adjustable by almost 1mm. For example, the difference in the above example was only .31mm/.024".

More experienced mechanics will recall when almost all transmissions were equipped with parts like these. That allowed the engine builder to set the shift shaft to exactly in the center for the best possible shift performance. We'd all like to think that the original engineers never make mistakes, but then we wouldn't need warranties, yes?

Install the stud with enough threads exposed for the locknut.


Turn stud till shift shaft "fingers" are centered on detent STAR pins.
Tighten down the locknut.
Recheck indexing.

This fits all the  DL650 / SV650 and others.

The extension of the laboratory for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940). He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal use but well preserved.
