Tuneboy electronic cruise control

Would like to know how much and how hard it was to install as well as how does it actually work.

The thread discussing this over on got shut down (commercialism?). Anyway, I purchased the "no-tune" package from Tuneboy, since all I wanted was the cruise control.

After a bit of confusion about getting the correct files, I installed the package using their WiFi box (had to try a couple times to finally get it completed). I believe the map that Wayne supplies with the "no-tune" packge is a little bit richer than original, since the engine seems to run a bit smoother and the fuel mileage has dropped slightly (range still over 200 miles). I ride like an old lady so I wouldn't know about power...

Although I installed it about a month ago, the combination of family vacations and COLD New Mexico weather (hey, I'm from SoCal) has prevented me from doing much riding. Finally got in a 200-mile ride a couple days ago, and was able to give the cruise control a "real" test.

I think the PID gains are tuned a little more aggressively than would be my choice; there is a slight amount of "hunting" after the speed is disturbed. But all in all it works quite well. I've just sold my Kaoko throttle lock, so that says that I like it, I guess .

I'll be taking the bike in to the dealer for the 30K mile service soon; hope they don't do a reflash cuz I'll have to reinstall the CC (and I'm afraid to tell them since it might void my extended warranty?) Oh, wasn't that hard to install.

Since I've been griping about the lack of a cruise control since day one (all the hardware is already there), I simply had to try Tuneboy's offering...I think he did a great job.
