    No map, diagnostics is working??? Map serial number shows.

    New computer, Win 8... Installed TuneECU and hooked up with CJ's cable.

    What is wrong that no map is showing?

    TuneECU Success Story 2008 Adv stock - Snow has melted enough for a test ride today.

    This took a long time, new computer, self training, learning to be confident with the process.

    I am happy to report no more on/off throttle. I can now lug around at low rpm without the lurky jerky. Clutch hand can now take a break. Take off from stop is now much easier and power is smoother all around. Just has transformed the 08 to be as smooth as the 13 Baja, really! I don't have to do any tuning because it is now just right.

    I am please, very please. Thanks to the TuneECU folks and the great new 08 map. I know there are a lot of guys and probably a few ladies that have made this possible for the regular guy. This is very special in this dog eat dog world. If you have an 07/08 adv you got to do this.

    The tune is for 07-08 stock bike...KM601US0704501Map.hex OEM md5checksum

    I have the same bike and will try that map. Is it comatable with Akra pipes? Your not running the stock pipes are you?
    Cheers

    rossguzzi,
    Yes I have stock pipes and used the map for stock pipes. I think you need a different map.

    Go to this site.

    http://www.tomhamburg.net/KTM_Tune_list.html

    Go down the list of tunes and find:990 Adventure 07-08 model years with Akrapovic Titanium slip-on

    Lots of maps on this page and you will have to study a few minutes to find your bike's map. I have been through the process and once done the job is much easier to tackle.

    Two questions:

    How many miles do you have on the remap?

    Are the o2 sensors enabled?

    xTomKx,

    I have about 60 miles on the new map. Stop and go in town, country cruising, hard throttle acceleration through the gears to 7,500, a pretty good mix of testing. The improvement in the area of throttle precision is nothing short of fantastic.

    O2 sensors appear to be enabled.

    What I did was download the KTM map from the TuneECU site and flashed the ECU using CJ's cable. Did the 15 minute idle. Did not make any changes to the map.

    The bike sat for a week do to snow and ice on the ground before I did the test ride. I did make a couple of stops to deliver some xmas gifts and visit letting the bike sit for awhile between rides.

    Hope the tune stays solid. I will know more about the tune after a Death Valley trip at the end of February. Although I feel this is the permanent fix.

    Hootowl,
    I have no idea yet of fuel consumption. Before I was getting around 42-46 average based on the stock speedometer, which may not be accurate as the stock speedo does not read correctly.

    I plan on checking the milage closely and will report when the weather permits a longer ride.

    Reason I was asking is that my map seems fine until I ride on the highway. After riding on the highway my low rpm throttle gets jerky again.

    Does anybody know how to cure that problem?

    That is not good. I'll be watching for that. I have no idea why but seems that the critical factor must be heat.

    The KM601US0704501Map for stock 07-08 exhaust works good for the Akro mufflers also. Not dangerous lean, just has lower power and better mileage than the Akro map. I've used this on several bikes when the owner got sick of 30 mpg using the recommended Akro map.

    A good map for the 07-08 with slip-on mufflers is the Akro map, but only if you turn the O2 sensors back on. Decent mileage, maybe in the 38 mpg range and good power.

    Go through all the basics too, loose valves, throttle cable properly adjusted, TPS spot on, new plugs, clean filter, clean vacuum port jets, throttle bodies balanced with an electronic twin depression gage. Then the Akro map with the O2 turned on. 15 min idle. Then tell us how good it runs.

    The map deteriorated with high speed highway riding.Could it be the o2 sensor input?

    I just installed the SW7 filter but my last ride showed no difference. May be a time to try different maps.

    Rich map = less power
    Lean map= more power

    My bike feels quicker with the stock map.

    Up to a certain ratio, burning more Dino = mo power. At 35 mpg my Adv ran like rocket.
