    Thank you both - good information to have.

    From what I've read and gathered over several threads, the units need more data points than the 20 minute loops would offer. Such a long run as Tahoeacr indicated would then be a basis for still more fine tuning.

    I guess it works as advertised - now I've got to start counting my pennies....I can use the excuse that I'll be saving $ with better gas mileage.....:clap

    Reinstalled the bazza unit Saturday and did 3 tuning sessions. Really improved the low speed fueling and bikes pulls stronger in the 3000 to 6000 rpm range. Since the dyno tune ECU session I have installed RC8 intake horns and a Remus 2 into 1 system that replaced a HT Racing 2 into 1 system. I did a 150 mile loop Sunday and still need to update the program with the changes. I still feel the Bazza set up is very good, I plan on making a few changes to my bike in the future and the auto tune will allow me to update the map with out a dyno or guess work.

    Took a decent ride and retrieved the following recommendations...applied these and am now getting about 40mpg....which is a lot better then before...I'm going to go out again and try to hit the spots my 'cruise' didn't catch. The unit is still logging richness even with the CPR installed (KTM Akra Map base).

    I would think that when self tuning, it is best to ride a single elevation and as a small temperature range as possible, ie not at a variety of atmospheric conditions....

    Octopus, I just installed a remus 2/1, and the Rottweiler intake with stage 3 kit(no SAS, no canister etc). It runs like a raped ape. BUT....I am very worried about fuel mileage now. Theoretically would this software help with that issue??

    I am no fuel injection expert. But I had looked into the Bazzaz set up for my '07 990 a while back. I really like the idea of the AFM as a tool to create maps. I may not get the whole picture. But I was worried about removing the O2 sensors and how that would limit the systems ability to adjust "automatically" to elevation and temperature changes as well as fuel (think Mexico barrel gas).

    Is that a valid concern? Something new with later Bazzaz setups?
