    Mine has no issue logging rpm. Did you connect the analog 0 pickup?

    Thanks StevenD for the reply. Yes, I connected the dedicated wires (marked as RPM- and RPM+ on the manual). I can see the right numbers while idling, but that's all

    I only used 1 wire, the analog + and pin it with a needle to the white+color of a coil wire. Just insert it next to the wire, so no splicing required.

    :huh

    I used the blue-white wire from the ecu connector for RPM+ and another color I don't remember right now for RPM-... I read somewhere that this configuration has been used on a 990 and it worked.

    I'll give a try to your solution. Thanks a lot!

    The secondary throttle setting for my map are zero up to near idle RPM and then ramp up very slowly--not reaching 20% until 2000 rpm and throttle opening exceeding 10%. I am working on a custom map to clean up a rich condition below 3000 RPM at small throttle openings. I have been leaning out the F map. Should I also look at adjustments to the second throttle? Increase %s to lean? Disable second throttle?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    new guy here,

    could anyone point me in the driection of a step by step for adjusting the throttle cables on a 2012 adv R using the TUNE ECU software? I have searched and searched but have been unable to locate a step by step procedure on this. I have a Cable in route to my house from CJ, and would like to take up the slack in the cables when i get home from work.

    thanks:freaky

    It's all on the TunECU site http://www.tuneecu.com/TuneECU_En/tasks.html

    Adjusting the throttle cable - KTM only
    The idle speed control stepper motor will be completely retracted and the throttle valves completely closed.
    Switch the ignition switch off, WITHOUT exiting or disconnecting the software, and adjust the throttle cable clearance.

    Sacal has it right Hutch990r, I put a new air kit on mine yesterday and it ran pretty crappy and idling down and stalling at stop signs. I went back to the garage and used TuneECU to retract the steppers with the throttle adjust selection and adjusted. Runs like a scalded cat now! Idles just fine at 1450 at stops now. And it was only a subtle adjustment that did the trick.

    I had a LM2 with dual wideband O2 and had a lot of issue's to get the rpm working correct
    The LM2 is very sensitive, i needed to isolate all cable but that worked just partly. When i disconnected the wideband sensors the rpm was very stable but with the wideband connected i got and intermitted signal lost or freeze signal. I had no scope to really measure the signals. So after checking and trying several things i assumed i had a ground loop issue. So i put a 10 nF capacitor in the rpm cable. After that my rpm was stable with the widebands connected.

    But it took me a couple of months to figure out and i was a bit fed up with the whole situation. That i directly sold it after i confirmed it worked correct and went to a tuner with a dyno

    thanks for the help! got it done last night, worked quite well. I heard the steppers retract, then turned off ignition and adjusted the cables, Tune ecu just connected back normally when i turned the ignition back on, didn't say anything about the procedure performed, which i assume is normal since it runs and idles just fine....

    had a little trouble getting tune ecu to connect at frist, but as soon i plugged the battery tender into the wall outlet it connected just fine :doh

    Does the LM-2 also log Throttle Position along with AFR and RPM.....

    and both MAP sensors in my case, depends on what wires you connect where you know..

    From day 1 I never had an rpm issue. Just had the whole unit malfunction after a few months but they replaced it under warranty.
    Just connected it (without negative lead) and it was perfect.

    Thanks a lot!!!
    I'll try this solution first so I don't have to reroute every cable.
    At which end did you sold the cap? Closer to the Lm2 or at the other end?
    Thanks again

    Close to the lm2, i had put in a isolated cable that i connected one end at the ecu and the other end i routed to the back of the bike were i connected the i/o cable of the lm2 with the capacitor inbetween

    I just got my cable, will I need to be connected to the internet while I'm unloading? My apartment garage is a little too far from my house.

    PC needs to be connected to internet to load TuneECU and required drivers (important)from their site and to download a map if you are there yet. Then, no internet needed to connect PC to ECU, diagnose, load maps,etc. Plug lap top into power supply when connected to bike. Put battery charger on bike to maintain voltage. Pull headlight fuse--avoids a lot of connection problems.

    Good luck
