Re: Motorcycle Fuel Management Systems

Bottom line is that any non-original part fitted needs to have CE approval. Most aftermarket exhausts designed to help performance will not have this, nor will K&Ns, mapping kits or add-on or replacement chips.

So the way to go, if you really want to do it, is first to accept that you're not going to be strictly legal. Yes, this is the reality and it's up to you to decide if you want to do it or not.

If you're happy to do that then you need to ensure that there's nothing noteworthy to the eye or ear about anything fitted and hope that you don't get pulled over by the one cop in 500 who might know enough to spot your changes. For the MFK, of course, you'd need to refit original parts if they would be spotted - the exhaust is the most obvious one - for the test, as long as it rund OK for a short test drive, and then refit afterwards.

Illegal it may be (it is) but this is why you won't notice many modified cars or motorbikes in Switzerland. They do exist, in relatively small numbers, but are designed not to attract attention, which of course for many people defeats the object entirely, given that it's often about being seen to have something special, whereas if you wanted a proper fast bike you'd just buy something better in the first place and leave it standard.
