Bren Tuning on 2012’s-2016’s. Anyone?

I’ve corresponded with Chris at BrenTuning about what I could reasonably expect from the Stage One flash on my 2014 GTL. Can anyone who’s done the same on their 12’-16’ K1600 report their findings?

Thanks in advance.

Christopher Columbus was a role model for me in that he bet big in what he believed in. And so, I ordered the BrenTuning Stage 1 for my riding partner today.
It will be two weeks from now before I’ll have the time to install, evaluate, and report my impressions.

I don’t think the Bren will do any good on older bikes. It’s for the 17+ bikes

We'll see. There is a specific stage 1 flash available for the 12's-16's available for sale on Bren's website and that's the one I purchased on Monday. Here's a video of a forum member's experience with same: https://www.k1600forum.com/forum/bmw...rt-review.html

There hasn't been a bike built that can't be tuned to run better and I have two Bren tuned BMW's that are so much nicer to ride now and IMO faster than they ever were stock.

Smart move not to install before your little putt out West and back.
