    Put the 1 tooth bigger sprocket on and also an exhaust sensor eliminator. I discovered the rider mode can turn off tc (and everything else) so I’ve been enjoying the little wheelie or two!

    Did you ever put the exhaust on?

    Had a nightmare yesterday with the bike....
    Synopsis is: went to fill up with fuel, came out of the garage, stalled 2 times and the bike was clearly running on two cylinders . Fine for the last 3.5 years.
    Thought it may clear but definitely not so decided to not do the ride out and return home.
    No errors on the display btw.
    Got hose out, cooled down the exhausts and then fired it up. Cylinder 3 clearly colder so a starting point. It would "surge" though and sound like it was ok for a split second.
    Unplugged the injector lead for that cylinder (easily accessible ) and error on the display, but still the same sound. So, injector working as it knew it was wrong/disconnected...
    Tilted up the tank, removed the battery and removed the air-box and it's various sensors etc so I could get to the plugs and coil (2 hrs as never done before)
    Removed plug and coil from 3 and pretty bad rust and not a great colour on the coil contact tbh. Measured continuity on all 3 coils and seemed the same but all 3 plugs seemed to be quite corroded at the top imho.
    Cleaned up all spark plugs, cleaned up the coil plugs bit and put back together (gap seemed fine but I've ordered 3 new plugs, £10 each on amazon) and tested, Fired up fine and has been brilliant on the ride out today.
    Basically, I don’t think that the coils were fully seated into/onto the sparkplugs from the factory and water had gotten in and they definitely seated better with a decent push. I'll replace the plugs with new on Saturday as it's only a 3 hr job all in. (as I now know..)
    Stupidly (?) i switched on the bike with all sensors and injectors unplugged and errors were bizarre to say the least (IMU failure, cruise failure, tsa failure, injector failure and more before I'd disassembled the bike fully.
    Seriously , get TUNEECU as i'd get rid of the whole lot as it wouldn’t then start until I could clear them. Worth every penny tbh.
    Bike is immaculate and rarely ridden/gotten wet so this wasn’t an expected issue tbh.

    Good job you know what you are doing … I’d have called the recovery agent, got it to a dealer and then gone down the pub to sulk ..!

    It genuinely got worrying when imu failure (and lots of others) came up as bike would turn over but no start.
    TUNEECU really really saved me from doing exactly as you said and tbh, I was close to that point if it hadn't worked.
    But, its actually not too bad to get to the top of the engine. Easier than the busa was.

    It won't take you 3 hours on Saturday, now you know what you're doing. I can change the plugs in 45 minutes fine.

    Sorry to raise an old thread but to any of those still here who have fitted alternative silencers, Did they mess up the fuelling?
    I am looking at fitting the SC projects tail pipe on y 2018 ST RS but don’t want to spend £500 and mess it up. I would run the pipe with the dB killer in it.
