Hey guys,
I was just approved by Bgordon to post about my possible services. I can help the previous Cblast guys get problems resolved, old flashes updated, launch control, quickshifters and new flashing.

I'm not exactly sure the best way to go about this and what is a fair price. I would like anyone with a problem flash to contact me. I would like to read the ECUs and get diagnosis done first. Its possible its firmware or the wrong file. I'm thinking $50 plus $6.80 2 day return shipping flat rate box for then new update. The biggest update is fuel mapping and decel fuel cut elimination. I have specific fuel mapping for almost every exhaust on the market. Baffle in and baffle out. I also have nitrous maps available. New complete flashes are on sale for $285 and that includes the return shipping though the end of the year. Normal price is $299 plus shipping.

Its possible that Sebastian at some point changed the email and tune license allocation. I'm thinking somewhere around July or August 2015. I may get locked out of some of his newer flashes. This would require a new flash tune license. I will discount them as well. The older ones, I'm 100% confident I can help with.

I'm not comfortable selling the launch control and quickshifter systems at this time. The ones I have tested don't work the way I think they should. At this point, HM makes a better shifter. MSD launch master gives the customer the real time control and is a better option for now. This may change as I have more time to test them.

I will start a new thread with all the details of the flash. I have a ton of data and testing to share. I have a complete list of exhaust systems my tunes cover. I also have matching dyno graphs.

This will be my last post here about Sebastian. I want people to know that in the beginning I truly thought we could make a great team. He was so passionate about these motorcycles. Down the line, something went wrong and things changed. I'm confident there are a lot of great flashes out there and some may already have the best product available. Even though he changed the name, it was still a great product. If your bike runs great, please say so. If you need help, let me know and I will do my best to fix it.

Thank you guys for your time. There is obviously a lot of energy and emotion in this forum. We all share the same passion for motorcycles.

Respectfully, Nels

I agreed with Nasty, "PTSD is no excuse for stealing thousands of dollars worth of equipment and lying to people for personal gain."

I'm not a psychologist, but when you look at Nel's price: $299.00, compared to the fraudster thief price $400.00, I think instead of P.T.S.D. he suffers from a mental health disorder known as G.R.E.E.D.

btw, there is an excellent book written by Lt. Col. Michael J. Forsyth titled:
"A Year in Command in Afghanistan: Journal of a United States Army Battalion Commander

In his book, Lt. Col. Michael J. Forsyth states and I quote: "we create a dependent class of soldiers who never take responsibility for their actions and instead blame PTSD for bad behavior". This book is an excellent read for anyone going to serve a tour in Afghanistan.

And on that note, in remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor, here is a pic I took last weekend when I visited Arlington National Cemetery and the Marine Corps War Memorial.

I've watched one of my friends go 1.2x 60 ft all day with the woolich launch control and he was still oem hand clutching his 14r

Nasty, that is impressive. So far, my best is a 1.4x 60' and that was literally dragging my ass off of the bike! Is there a way to disable the Woolich launch control?

I contacted Anthony from Woolich racing and he supplied me this link to the launch control on a ZX-14R. It seems rather impressive:

I rode my bike down to 2 wheel Dynoworks this past summer and had him flash and tune for me. It did not go well at first - the bike wouldn't idle. Within half an hour or so he had figured out that I fucked up and blocked off the wrong hose when I installed my brocks dual CT. Once my oops was fixed, the bike tuned up beautifully and is a dream to ride.

Great guy, humble and knowledgeable. Impressive dyno room (the ventilation system is so powerful that it's very difficult to open the door when the fans are running!)

If you have one of his flashes, or are thinking of getting one, I highly recommend swinging by to have the flash fine tuned for your bike, then pop up Mt. Baker for a rip afterwards for a very fun twisty ride :D

The truth behind the "Cblast" flash

If you believe in Karma this day was always coming as many of you I'm sure could tell from his posts. In short, "It Comes Around" Bank on it.

The truth can't be kept quiet,,,, This time I must admit it took awhile lol. Sorry, just trying to lighten the mood. Maybe some of this is my bad for not telling you guys all that has happened to me personally early on when all this flash bashing began. Lots I kept to myself. Some know.

Nells I should have called you. But at the time looking back doubt you would have listened to a stranger. Even then not all was as it appeared to be.

I personally Respect anyone who helps us better our sport. The sharing of information is what keeps me hear. In return I Help when I can. Learn when I can. Love the forums.

Now "GREED" is a powerful motive, allows some to justify any and all actions of wrong doing. Rewards are clear whether it be personal, political, financial etc

Before I go any further I want to understand the title. Simply because I never could. C'Flash ?

Nels owns the bike shop.

Nels owns the Dyno.

Nels Built the tune.

Does Nels "Need" C'Blast to make a flash,,,,,, No !

Did Nels Ever Need C'Blast,,,,,, No!

Let me ask any of you, If I sit on my bike while Brock does a tune, is my knowledge helping this man at all ? He can clearly do it with out me. Friendship and the love of the bike is the only gains of my being present. Correct ?

Now there is no such thing as a C'Blast Flash, never was. Nels Flash only

C'Blast provided the bike only and that is it. Interjected himself as the middle man to make sales. All C needed was knowledge of others. This would fill in the gap and complete the image of pro bike shop to the online viewers.

So How this was done,,,,, pictures of others Dyno's. Others Shops. All different bikes in these shops. Now lets do Name dropping with pics. Image complete. I watched it all happen.

It was only afterwards when his bike went from one Dyno to another in the same day did I have to call foul. Bike picked up a whopping additional 13 hp on top of the original tune he already had. Here I had call it. To much BS. Happy Dyno's can be fun. The attack began for me. Looking back maybe I should have let it slide Lol When others asked why there bikes were not making those numbers with the same tune they were told problems with their chains, throttle body sync was needed, new spark plugs were required etc. Guys were spending money on brand new bikes to receive little or no gains. It was wrong !

To the onlooker the image of vast racing knowledge is impressive. Now attacked all others(ouch)to increase sales. Believe me it worked. Magic pill was reborn once again. Faster than Rickey Gadison C'Mon???? I guess that would help if was true.

Nels clearly has no trouble tuning any and all of these bikes over again. The lost time in labor costs to rebuild all the tunes stolen would and is very sad indeed. You have to feel for the guy.

Stealing his lap top will only provide short term gains. Looking long term, what has C done. Lost a friend for short term money. There in lies the real crime. Even if the goods get returned damage is done. Even if all is forgiven Nels will never forget. Trust is lost. Very sad story.

I have an idea. Since so many of the flash purveyors claim to "love the bike" and since most of you use Woolich's hardware/software why not just put your respective flashes up on the "Woolich Tuned Maps" web site and let folks make use of 'em. That way, for those that want to invest in the Woolich hardware/software, they can just have at it. And for those that don't, you can still offer your flashing service. Currently there are only 11 flashes available for download for the 14r but, by comparison, there are over 60 flashes available for the Hayabusa. Apparently there is a lot more "love of the bike" going on in their community. So how about it? People can use your maps and maybe even improve them. That way we can all benefit.

I don't know if loving the bike and making a profit or at least breaking even have to be mutually exclusive. If I had a bike product there was a demand for, I'd sell it.

there are over 60 flashes available for the Hayabusa. Apparently there is a lot more "love of the bike" going on in their community.

I wouldn't doubt it's still a more popular bike than the 14. Probably 50 of those 60 flashes are nearly identical. If it's basic mods, how much different can they be?

Anyway, ECU Editor is being favored over a direct flash for the busa. You can change anything you want any time and that software is free. The ECU Editor box costs the same as a flash.

Well! Well! It's been along time since I have gotten on this sight, The Cblast has come to a end. The Internet can be a powerful seller. Take your bike/ECM to a pro, I could have messed my ZX14R up fooling with this guy. No one will ever touch my ECM again unless it me or Jonnycheese, you live and learn.

Sometime within the first 6 months or so of getting my '13, being new to flashes I emailed Cblast asking questions about price and options, and he replied with a long list with descriptions. BUT, the email itself was very unprofessional, containing many typos and punctuation errors, and descriptive words and superlatives like a teenager would use ... well it all had my spidey senses tingling, so I didn't pull the trigger. I'm a VERY skeptical person by nature anyway (TOO much so?), so I thought / hoped it was just me, and that everybody else was doing fine: paying their $400 and receiving what they hoped for. And it seems most did, which is good.

But then Victhing's looong thread comes along showing no gains, and Cblast never appeared to defend his product.

Now, like cruderudy, I'm also wondering if Victhing was testing stock vs a stock.

Anyway, I probably would've made out fine, as most seem to have, but now I'm really glad I didn't buy from Cblast.

I don't see why guys should work to create flashes for free.

this is like the jeffo thing from years back. snake oil that people drink up and want to believe transforms the bike into something it wasn't already. Easy pickins for a scammer. I've had many conversations with Romans and he's legit. I believe Nels is also. Ivan, for sure. Anyone who pops up out of nowhere, just sit back and wait.

I am glad the truth got out and at least people can benefit from this. Really screwed up what CBLast did to Nels. That was the worst part of the story. At least you can get it from him now at a reasonable price which is cool with real support since it was his work.

His whole snake oil description about the flash turned me off as well.... " creamy throttle response" or some BS like that. Was tested against other flashes and was/is a good product....TOO BAD it belonged to someone else!!

Update on my clock issue. I sent my ecu in to Nels and he happily corrected the problem. He even called me to explain exactly what the problem was, and to answer a few questions that I had. Super nice and obviously extremely intelligent. I've found my tuning professional for life. Thank you again Nels, you are a class act sir.

Cblast had disabled my evap purge valve in the ecu. Apparently the settings page function is on the same circuit. Also my fuel cut was still enabled, so Nels disabled that. Some people with a good memory will recall that Sebastian claimed the 14R doesn't have fuel cut.
