Motorcycle Tuning TechnologyAnyone familiar with the Bazzaz name knows its founder, Ammar Bazzaz, helped Mat Mladin bring home his first three AMA Superbike Championships.
How? Bazzaz was a race engineer at Yoshimura R&D during some of Mladin’s domination, offering his expertise in engine management and electronics. As Bazzaz’s reputation built throughout the motorcycle-racing industry, he decided to start Bazzaz Inc. in 2003.And from the beginning, Bazzaz had one goal – bring high decided to bring high-level technology and knowledge to all levels of racers and motorcycle enthusiasts.This trend continues today, as Bazzaz performance tuning technology is developed at the highest levels of professional racing and made affordable and easy to use for any competitor.Bazzaz unleashed race-level fuel injection tuning with the Z-Fi. Utilizing all available injectors right out of the box, the Z-Fi works to improve both mid-range and peak power delivery with more responsive, smoother throttling.Performance modifications, along with changing fuel types and atmospheric conditions, require adjustments to the fuel air mixture for true performance. So Bazzaz developed the Z-AFM Air Fuel Mapper to quickly collect data while riding. Pro race teams use the Z-AFM in preparation for every race to build custom fuel maps quickly and easily.Even better, the Bazzaz Z-Fi QS combines fuel control with quick shift for full throttle, clutchless upshifting. Using a high quality proximity sensor, the system cuts ignition for milliseconds with the cut times that are adjustable by gear to create a seamless, exhilarating experience that considerably shaves down lap times.Finally, true performance machines have the Bazzaz Z-Fi TC, which unbelievably includes fuel control and quick shift with traction control in a single unit. This tunable form of traction control is crucial on the track for vastly improved times and more confident cornering.These and other Bazzaz products are available at most retailers. Prices range from $379.95 for a Z-Fi fuel controller to $949.95 for the full Z-Fi TC. The software, renowned for its smart and easy interface, can be downloaded for free at Bazzaz.net.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
