    Hi all!
    A few days ago,my bike went to the dealer in order to update the ecu's software.The version 4-10 was loaded.But after that,fuel consumption was increased by 1-1,5 liters/100 kms.The driving style is the same as was before.
    What's going on?Has anybody else the same issue?
    Is it possible a "reset" via the "15 minutes idle" procedure to be essential in order the engine to run correctly after the update?The dealer didn't make a reset and i wonder if that is the real problem...

    Hi Okeanis,

    I'm no expert on how the updates are / should be performed, but I do have the same 'bike and ECU software version as you, and am in Corfu. If there is any testing / measuring I can do to assist you, please tell me what to do?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    There is no testing or measuring you can do.Today,i did the 15 minutes reset and then i rode for 20 kms.The fuel consumption was about 1l/100 kms lower!!!So i think i found the cause of the problem...
    Thanks for your interest my friend Rob!

    Hi Okeanis,

    Please let me know what this "15 minute reset" procedure is? I'm not sure if Pericles the tech at Bikers & Bikes knows about it either ... certainly never saw it done on the two last occasions when ECU updates were installed.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    It's simply starting the bike and letting it idle for 15 minutes without touching the throttle, it's suppose to reset the bike for the current atmospheric conditions. It seemed to work on the 690's not sure about the 1190's.

    So, does it work for 1190's? I changed my exhaust from stock to Wings shorty and am wondering if there is a procedure I should follow. Thanks.

    My fuel consumption also went up after last service, I guess it's the same issue. I'll give the 15 min idle a shot tonight.
