Micron Slip On Caught Fire

On last week I got my Micron GP slip on, in red to go on my 06 Raven. Went to the dealership to have it installed. You would never belive what happen after it was installed and the bike taken for a test ride. All of the red paint burned off to a crisp. The slip on itself did not burn, but the paint they used was . It came completely off. I even sent some of the burnt paint back to Micron along with the slip on after explaining to Micron what happened. The guy I talked to was like Micron has like hundreds already on the street already, which is bullshit. When I ordered mine I had to wait like a week or so because Micron had not shipped them out to any companies to sell yet. So if you are thinking about getting one you may want to reconsider and try another maker. I'm still waiting to hear back from them about my situation.

One of many reasons I don't recommend Michron;
Poor quality control from batch to batch, inferior fitment on some models, and a poor attitude about standing behind what they sell.

He has an '06 R6 which is FI. Typically we'll see the FI bikes run rich in the midrange whenever an exhaust / intake mod is done.

weird, usually, Im saying this with "harley usually", the open exhaust even with FI requires a retune or reflash to add more fuel, it doesnt compute for it to be tuned and then open it up and find it running richer than before.

and his running hot enough to bake a pipe like that, ifn' it was my bike, I would be very concerned, its an obvious sign he needs to be paying attention to.
Think about it, doubtful it was cheap paint, and even cheap paint takes a good bit to bake off.
just an fyi from an old knowlegeable fart

O.K., first off, the Micron "coating" on their slip ons is very thin and is not a "paint" per se.
I've seen ALOT of the Microns do it, regardless of F.I. or carb tuning, they have a poor product in my opinion without a lot of consistnecy in their quality.

Second,
On carbed bikes changes in the intake or exhaust that cause more flow will typically lean the mixture out.
However on most fuel injected bikes, what happens is that the sensors in the system detect more air flow, more than the parameters than they were written for, so they dump too much fuel.

If you look at most Power Commander maps, the midrange has negative numbers where we are removing fuel from the system.
You are right about one thing, the Harley is the one exception to this rule, with the exception of the twin cam models.

sounds like the metric computers are actually better computers, as I said, i was using the harley as an example, it would be nice if the computers actually sensed and reacted to what data they recieve.:BangHead:
