    The factory Akra map wasn't bad, IF you turned on the O2 sensors. The original Akra map had them turned off, that was one reason the fuel mileage was so bad.

    You could try the PowerTripp map for dual exhaust, included with the KTM map directory. It works on 09-up Adventures. I've been using his map for single exhaust and found it to work great.

    If you have an 07-08 Adventure, no one has come out with the holy grail map for that.

    Thanks for the intel! I have an '09. I may try the Akrapovic map and activate the O² sensors. The powertripp map seems to be made for akrapovics with no baffles installed, so I suspect it will be somewhat too rich for my wings with medium baffles.

    You might want to try an 11 R map too if you haven't already. I switched my 10 990 to a 11 R map with good results but I'm running 2 into 1.

    Is there a summary of what maps work with what years, and which maps might have been the same out of the 'box' if you will?

    There are two categories of 990 maps; years 07-08 and then 09 and up. Last time I looked the maps say what year they are for, like 07 or 10. As for changes, I've always just downloaded a map for the correct category, in my case 09 and up, and compared it with what I'm currently running.

    The official download link @ tuneecu.com is out of bandwidth.

    Any alternative download links?

    Two or three thread pages back there is a less than 10 minute vídeo with a very clear HOW T about changing maps on the 990. A few pages back there is a link with an archive with the most relevant bits of information of this thread.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but the R map version suits all versions from 09 onwards

    Ditto, I found this post on page 102, I was in a no connect state on Windows 7 until I followed thru these steps.

    Thanks for the help.

    So hopefully spring is really here in WI. I have been gearing up to deal with the FI concerns on my '08 990 adv. After getting all software and map/s from the website, and then reading the archived info here and the manual from the tuneecu site I have generated a few questions that I could use some help with.

    1. 2008 has 2-2 wings exhaust. I figure I would use the akra us spec map, correct?

    2. I had removed the "butterflies" to try and help with the snatchy throttle issue, should I re-install them?

    3. I don't know enough about FI to adjust any of the values, so will the akra map help with the snatchy throttle issues and not kill the mpg?

    Any help,direction, slap up side the head would be appreciated.

    I also need to order the cable, unless someone here has one they want to sell. PM me if so.

    Thanks

    1. akra map will work
    2. Depends if it works for you. Did it reduce the snatchy throttle? If not I'd reinstall them. I found changing them to a minium opening of 20% removed that intial burst of power without significally reducing the snatchy throttle
    3. I found the snatchy throttle got worse with the akra map. You will get worse mpg especially if you leave the oxygen sensors inactive.

    I tried reducing the ignition advance found at around 5-8% throttle as suggested by someone here and intially found an improvement but since changing to aftermarket exhausts and changing to the akra map with the tweaked igntion maps I found the snathcy throttle worse then ever. I think I might go back to standard map with the tweaked igntion vs throttle map as that worked best for me.

    >>> answer above

    Once you do all this, then you can start the tweaking process. Smooth the ign, add/remove fuel, etc.
