Welcome to bikeboy.org
bikeboy.org is the home page of Brad The Bike Boy, the new home of Brad Black formerly of Moto One. Brad The Bike Boy is my new business, a workshop specialising in service, repairs and modifications to Aprilia, BMW, Ducati, Moto Guzzi and MV Agusta motorcycles.
All the technical reports and rambling previously on the Moto One Performance Pages are available here as well.
Why bikeboy you might ask. Well, several years ago when I went to get an internet account with an ISP, I had to put down three choices for account name. The first two were sensible things to do with my name, the third was the silly option, being “bikeboy”. Guess which one I ended up with? Which surprises me as I’ve never personally come across another Brad Black.
What we can do for you:
Pretty much everything you could need. Service, general repairs, accident repairs, modifications and performance work using the experience and knowledge I’ve gained working with these brands since 1994.
With the exception of the BMW special tools and GT1 diagnostic system, we purchased all the workshop equipment and tooling from Moto One. This includes the Axone electronic diagnostic tool the official Aprilia and Moto Guzzi tool which has been upgraded to cover nearly all brands of motorcycle, including late model BMW, Ducati and MV Agusta as well as the Aprilia and Moto Guzzi. In addition to this tool we also have the Ultimap (formerly Fuel Injected Motorcycles) Diagnostic software for Magnetti Marelli ECU, the Technoresearch VDSTS software (official MV Agusta diagnostic tool) and Tuneboy software for Aprilia RXV/SXV models. Plus all the Ducati, Moto Guzzi and Aprilia special tools.
We have equipment for real time data logging and recording of exhaust gases, which we can use on road, track or dyno to tune your engine as required. Some of which will talk directly to the Magnetti Marelli P7, P8, 1.6M and 1.5M ECU and Ultimap U59 replacement ECU.
We also have the hardware and software to modify eprom files on Magnetti Marelli P7, P8 and 1.6M ECU eproms and Denso eproms from the ’98 ’05 Aprilia RSV and Tuono range and to reprogram the Magnetti Marelli 1.5M ECU.
