    I am trying for figure out a way to visit Wayne to tune my Superduke, visit Barber Motorsports Park for the classic races and do a track day at the facility thereafter. Just need six numbers. :deal

    That said Wayne has been extremely generous with his time and sharing the results of his customers' tunes. Thank you.

    Michael C. - Thanks. It is good to hear one of those maps works well for you.


    CA is soooo far away. AL is right here. :D
    Generally, it takes 4 hours to completely map a bike with TuneECU or TuneEdit. Occasionally working out details like best secondary throttle operation, really screwed up part throttle ignition mapping, or finding optimum F-L switch points, can take longer. Once I have a good base map to work from, 3 hours is normal for a 9000-10,000 rpm bike - allowing for a bit of cool down time to keep oil temps reasonable.

    Lebowski - TuneEdit is the mapping software from TuneBoy. TuneBoy is just the diagnostic interface software. TuneECU has both the mapping and diagnostic software in the same interface software... and it is free.

    GixxerSteph - Any time you can fit us into your schedule, let me know. Barber is a great facility - the track is very technical, blind turns, lots of elevation changes, and great track surfaces. The museum has to be seen to be believed. 5 stories of motorcycles crammed under one roof. A beautiful place, as well. In fact, Yamaha has the track rented all next week for the photo and video shoot for all of their motorsports ads and brochures for the next few years. All only a 40 minute ride (in traffic) from our shop to the Barber paddock.

    Back to the grindstone, I have two race heads to port before Monday, aside from normal business. No rest for the wicked... and all that.

    I can convert them to tuneecu. Message me, I already did this for someone else. I have a license and the tuneboy cable for my bike.

    Today I loaded the 2011 Std Adventure standard map into my 2010 990 R Adventure.
    O2 sensors still enabled at all times.

    Mods done to the bike previously are Wings mufflers with the 32mm inserts and the Uni Prefilter.
    The bike when still standard surged between 3000 and 4000 rpm, quite noticeable around 30 - 40mph.
    Also comming back on the throttle, the fuelling was very abrubt at these low speeds.

    After a 1 hour test ride around town and on the highway I can say that the surging has improved, but only marginally.
    The abrupt throttle opening problem has improved more, now only slightly noticeable.

    So, maybe need to try a tuned map from Power-Tripp and see what difference that makes.

    I have my 2007 990 scheduled with Wayne the first week of Oct for a tuning session. My bike has 2 into 1 HT Racing system,& a Motor Hooligan air box. So he might share the map from my bike.

    Not to get off subject but, I see Cycleops now offers a plug and play accelerator module to cure the FI stumble. As I understand it, this module tricks the ECU into thinking the ambient temp is 20c cooler than the actual air temp, hence a richer fuel mixture under acceleration.

    Do you think it would cure the surging? Here's a link to the product http://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/?page=products&id=158

    It's similar to this product http://www.powerfrkusa.net/
    Waste of money, because it adapts the temp sensor.
    But what happens when you go to a different altitude or an place where it's very hot?.
    I don't think these things adapts + some of the power graphs on the powerfrk site have the A/F attached.
    But i don't like em, lambda 0,6 = afr 8 :eek1 ( http://www.powerfrkusa.net/dynographs/bmw-r1200gs-by-michael-muhlmann-at-m-tec/ )
    But i think the oil company's liked them, because of the fuel use :lol3

    Invest in custom tune and you will not believe the difference!

    I still don't have the bike running good above 5000 rpm's when I slowly roll on the throttle, when I hit 3/4 or more throttle it runs good. I added the Bazzaz unit and have it set at 13 to 1 air fuel across the range and it runs very good below 5000 rpm's. I can be rolling along at 3000 rpm in 1st or 2nd and WOT results in power wheelie every time. Before the Bazzaz unit it would cough, stumble, spit and then take off a full 2 seconds later!

    I did pull the secondary butterflies and shafts when I installed the motor hooligan air box. You should visit the Super Duke forum. They have the same issues with the FI and many have converted over to the Motor Hooligan box and removed the secondary flies and shafts.

    The added bonus of visiting Wayne is a visit to Barber museum and the gulf. My wife and I are going to spend the week and hopeful the bike is done after a few days and we will tour the state on the KTM.

    Still do not have my tune ECU cable, It shipped Monday from CJ! I would love to get help from someone in the area and load a Akron map to see if by chance it clears the rough spot, and I need to turn off the error code for the secondary flies stepper motor.

    hello,

    I am riding around the world on a KTM 990 Adventure R (11) and my partner who is on a KTM 990 Adventure (08) for charity - Autism Research Trust. First Chinese female to do so. We have just been charged over US$200 by KTM Nairobi for 5 minutes attached to their ECU diagnostic kit + US$600 for two services and that means we really are not eating for a few days.. such is the tight budget. The issue is fuel filters which get wrecked by the poor fuel in Africa and the general conditions which are harsh(ish). Also, KTM 990's have problems with the clutch slave which is not very robust, the front wheel rim and the pumps.. water and fuel.

    We are at Jungle Junction in Nairobi having completed 12,000Kms already across Africa and ran into another 990 rider coming south from Ethiopia and he recommended we download Tune ECU and relevant maps for our bikes which we did. However, not much use without the connectors and so I was surfing this site and saw that some people had ingenuously made some up.

    Just wondering how to get hold of such a cable/ six point ECU connector and USB connector.

    Not easy to import things into Africa. I note there hasn't been a sudden out break of honesty here and everyone seems to fight a lot, hence customs are notorious for squeezing exorbitant import taxes or squeezing for bribes or both usually. Not much we can do when the tone from the top is Kleptomania and poor governance. Anyway, I digress, we really could do with an ECU cable and any advise about upgrading the shoddy clutch slave and pumps.

    Thanks

    yes, i am a member of sd.net also. i have an 08 sd also. i to have removed the secondary shafts on both bike. our advs are almost identical. i would really like to see the difference between your new map (that waynes going to make) and my map. mine is a dynojet split map imported into tuneecu.

    here is your answer:

    So removing the shafts isn't going to bring much, just some weight loss

    This thread is far to important to be on the third page.

    ON topic: As soon as I get another tank or two on the 2011 "r-ified" stock map for a baseline, I'm gonna try one of the custom maps recently posted here.

    2011 map is so much better than the 2010 mine came with--avg around 36 mpg with much better driveability.

    Alley,
    What was your mileage with the 2010 map? (sorry if I lost where you may have stated it...this thread is getting pretty long). My 09 averages around 42 on the highway and the open 2-1 has changed that very little, while smoothing out the driveability so much it has really delayed me even trying TuneEcu - when I get a chance I would still like to try some map changes to push closer to 50. I understand it is do-able, but maybe not without datalogging or dyno work?

    I put the 2011 Std map into my 2010 R a couple of weeks ago and had a couple of decent rides last weekend. Alot of gravel riding.

    The bike has Wings with 32mm inserts and the Uni-prefilter.

    The snatch when coming back on the throttle is all but gone. Only felt it slightly noticable at one point, once, during the weekend, and I was looking hard for it. So I can't even say where in the rev range it was. So the gravel riding was a joy.

    Surging is still there between 3000 and 4000rpm, but not as bad? hard to say.

    Overall a good improvement. No idea on the mileage with that map. Previous cruising mileage was 52mpg, Imperial.
