LAMS unrestriction - where is that plug?

Hello all,

while tinkering in the man-cave I started poking around to find where the plug is for the fuel/injector limiter on the LAMS restricted Versys.

I made a video to show you what I'm talking about...




If anyone could confirm you would be awesome!

The connector you point out in the end of your video is the subharness connector for the ABS.

According to my Kaw dealer, the 2015 V, like all the newer 650's, doesn't have the plug. Just remove the throttle stop with a security torx driver.

Two things to think about: firstly, if you are still on a restricted license removing the throttle stop may make you liable to prosecution. Same goes for removing the stop and not notifying the authorities. Once removed (legally) it can't be re-installed.

Do you really need the extra hp?. I had an unrestricted ER6n and never needed to rev it beyond 6k revs. Removing the stop probably won't give me anything.

Thank for the responses, it seems we're not quite there yet. I checked the link to the previous thread but that seems to reference an older model LAMS versys mk 1 mk 2?
The wiring seems different from the mk3.
Thanks Iamra for clarifying on the connector.
Looks like I'll go pay a visit to the Kawasaki dealer, though service department can be a bit hit and miss with unfamiliar models.

As for the extra power, we're taking about a 217kg bike with restricted ps/HP of 53 , this is no supersports. Unrestricted is 69 hp which is a 22% increase, mostly at the mid to top end.
Looking through the service manual it shows the following;
Maximum Horsepower
## 51.0 kW (69 PS) @8 500 r/min (rpm) compared with - (AU-LAMS) 39 kW (53 PS) @7 800 r/min (rpm)
and
Maximum Torque
##64 Nm (6.5 kgfm, 47 ftlb) @7 000 r/min (rpm) compared with (AU-LAMS) 57 Nm (5.8 kgfm, 42 ftlb) @3 800 r/min (rpm)

I'm wondering If remapping in the ecu is required...
