    Hi Paul, that was a quick reply, many thanks! I had been think about 'revo' but was surprised to see the thread of yours. My email address is hmsgenoa@yahoo.co.uk I dont know how careful you have to be remapping but it was encouraging to see what you have done. I had a tuning box on the bmw but the car was always belching out smoke. Sure this is the right way to go! Cheers again hope I might be able to be of help to you somehow one day. I am in the bike trade (at moment) work for a distributor of high end bikes, juat in case you need anything pushbike related. If we do it i can help out. Best regards Ian
