    This looks like a cool app. Have you tried this app and BT adapter on the 990? I assume it's monitor only?

    Dave's not here! :rofl

    I'm still recuperating from being in the oven for 8 hours yesterday! For all the owners of a 990 that is non-compliant in the fueling department, go see Wayne. If there is no Wayne, find a shop that will tune your bike using TuneECU and get your fueling set right. I rode 1000 miles to get this done.

    The difference between two 2010 990A's - Thomas' bike and my bike, is substantial, both in tune parameters and output. For me, this only reinforces what Wayne already said, "every bike is different"!!!

    I hope these two tunes get folks headed in the right direction, but I'm a firm believer in tuning using an eddy-current dyno, 4 gas analyzer and a resident expert like Wayne. You really need all three. I just saw "speed savant" under the Power-Tripp username. He's not lying or exaggerating!!!


    One more comment: I have more power, 40+ mpg when I ride sanely, a smoother throttle and no lurching and jumping when the bike is running fully hot. This is everything I asked for and the MPG is icing on the cake. You DO NOT need to put carbs on your FI KTM. Bring it to Wayne and he will hook you up and get it right.

    You're right, this app looks VERY cool! Wayne showed it to me and I bought it right then. I ordered the bluetooth gizmo from the cardoc guy on Ebay and had the bluetooth connector in less than two weeks.

    Thanks to Wayne, I've got the KTM ECU to OBDII cable and will hook mine up soon. I'm still trying to sort out a waterproof mini-usb connector to my Motorola Defy, which is weatherproof. No sense in having a droid that doesn't mind water or dust and then blow it up with wet power.

    EDIT:
    Here is the eBay item number for the ANDROID compatible bluetooth/obdii gizmo: 300581277083

    I'd be interested how it works. I have the TuneECU cable somewhere around here. Gave up on it after TunECU would not download my maps from the ECU.

    I want to do this, but need to find someone local.

    I wonder, would contacting Factory Pro or Mustang Dynamometer would help? Maybe they can tell you if there is a shop in your area with one of their setups...

    Cy,
    I have not tested on the 990 ADV, but I does work well on other bikes using the same VAG protocal with Keihin ECUs. There is no reason it will not work on the KTMs (all of 'em) running the same ECUs. The only issue is the connector - which is not hard to make, and even easier to purchase.

    The ability to use the 3D accelerometers and GPS in a smart phone, in conjunction with all of the outputs that you can see in TuneECU, makes for some interesting information, and the ability to test for your self, and changes in mapping. We have been using this for a while now on some of the higher output street bikes, and logging the data as well.

    In WA state, try contacting Gary Ricci.

    Ricci Motorsports
    Woodinville, WA 98072
    Phone: (425) 424-3888 (this may not be current, but is the only number I have for him.)

    He doesn't generally take in Adventurers and Sport Tourers, as he tends to work on mostly AMA and racing stuff. But you might be able to talk him into it.

    I hope this helps,

    -Wayne

    Maybe we could get a group of us to go visit him. I'd do it.

    Does anyone know whether TuneEcu has the ability to re-initialize the ECU ?

    With the KTM tool, after loading new maps, one must instruct the bike's ECU (via the KTM tool) to re-initialize - that's where the 15 min idle comes in . .

    Does TuneEcu put the bike's ECU into this "re-initialization" mode ?

    Yes!

    Reset - Keihin ECU - only KTM
    After downloading a FI-map, start the engine and let runnig it idle (without touching accelerator) for 15 minutes,
    then turn it off.

    http://tuneecu.com/TuneECU_En/tasks.html

    The manual is also available for download on the TuneECU website.

    The instructions state;

    Reset - Keihin ECU - only KTM
    [FONT=&quot]<big>After downloading a FI-map, start the engine and let runnig it idle (without touching accelerator) for 15 minutes,
    then turn it off.</big>[/FONT][FONT=&quot]<big></big>[/FONT]


    We are assuming here that TuneEcu has somehow set the bike's ECU into "re-initialize" mode.



    What i'm asking is whether someone knows for sure that the TuneEcu software does in fact instruct the bike's ECU to "re-initialize". If it doesn't, the 15 min idle re-set will do nothing.



    With the factory diagnostic tool, the KTM XC-1, this "re-initialize" ECU mode must be started manually by the operator, if not the ECU will not re-learn after a new map is downloaded.

    When you download a map, at the end of the download, the interface software (TuneECU) reinitializes the ECU.

    On the dyno, I also reset the adaptive trims as well. Just to make sure I am starting from a blank slate.

    Is there a way to reset the adaptive trims (reset adaptations . .) with TuneEcu , or can this only be done with the XC-1 ? That's the purpose of the 15 min idle cycle, to set new adaptive values.

    Open the diagnostics tab in TuneECU, while connected to the bike.
    Under ECU, click on Reset Adaptions to clear all adaptive trims.

    THEN, let the bike idle 15 minutes. This forces a new adaption to take place.

    I follow this post and always try to limit the on/off cut with the trothle of my 08'.

    You propose for try two new map for 09'-11'. Someone does have an base map for 06'-08' ?

    The map must be correctly for each bike, but your base will be better than an stock !!

    So if someone can help me in my search, it'ld be friendly!

    Thanks for all !!

    bouboule,
    Nothing is going to be perfest, but there is one thing you can try:
    Upload the base map from your ECU, and SAVE it.
    Download one of the custom maps for the '09-'10 that are on the TuneECU side.
    Copy and paste EVERY table into your stock base map.
    Save.
    Download to bike.
    Test ride.

    Report back.

    thanks for your response and your help!

    I've prepare my stock map with stock R map datas. I'll try this morning on my ADV.

    The cams are different between 08' and news, that's not a problem to try the values? Ignition, fueling are so different !!


    Thanks !!
