    Hi fellas!

    Does anyone know if TuneECU can tell us what is happening when we activate the low octane fuel switch?

    Netbooks are not Linux only, some are win XP and Vista. And you can install windows or some form of windows emulation on just about all of them.

    Just got the cable. Thanks Powercell! :clap

    I'm reading the Akropovic map from my ECU right now. It was loaded on my '07 Adventure around 9/09. It is map KM601AK0704501.

    I am anxious to compare the different maps.

    Edit: I have the bike plugged in to my trickle charger, which is probably a good idea if you are going to have the ignition (and headlight) switched on with the engine off.

    Now that inmates are starting to get their cables, you need to know how to adjust the computer port settings. Before you do this, install the TuneECU software and driver as described here:

    http://www.tuneecu.com/TuneECU_En/install1.html


    You need to set the port settings for the USB/ODB-II adaptor.

    For Windows XP:

    1 - Right click on My Computer
    2 - Select Properties
    3 - Choose the Hardware tab
    4 - Locate the USB Serial Port and double-click
    5 - Choose the Port Settings tab
    6 - Change the Port Speed setting to 921600
    7 - Change the Flow Control setting to Xon/Xoff
    8 - Choose OK to save the settings and you're all set

    For Windows 7:

    1 - Right click on My Computer
    2 - Select Properties
    3 - Choose Device Manager
    4 - Locate the USB Serial Port and double-click
    5 - Choose the Port Settings tab
    6 - Change the Port Speed setting to 921600
    7 - Change the Flow Control setting to Xon/Xoff
    8 - Choose OK to save the settings and you're all set

    Got my cable today also, thanks Ken.

    Great to see the guys with the 07s getting onboard.

    Steve thanks for posting your map #... It's going to make it easyer to identify on the TuneECU site.

    I will hook mine up tomorrow and read the map and send it to Tom to add to there collection. He has posted on the Duke site that he has had a couple maps sent to him without a bike description, so if anyone has sent one from here he was looking for the bike it was downloaded from.

    It will be nice to see what changes KTM made to the map updates..

    Also while reading thru the Duke forum one member has seen dramatic improvements with the throttle on-off snatch with getting his TPS set spot on.

    You can borrow mine when ever you want. Yes, I am going. I need to get out of work somehow this week. It's been nutty with back to back releases.

    It's running amazingly smooth, but I still have a hesitation from 4-5k. It is driving me insane.

    I had the stock map, newer stock map, and then the newer akropovic map. Seemed like there is a little more top end and a little less snatch with the Akropovic map. It is definitely thirstier.

    I'll be sending my Akropovic map. I'm sure this has been discussed before, but it looks like this map has the EPC and O2 sensor disabled. It does show that the SAI and 2nd throttle are enabled.

    EDIT: MY tps reads from 0% to 94%. Too bad some of the test and adjust functions currently do not work.

    Thank you. Definitely speeds up the map reading.

    I'm running the 2010 990R map in my 2010 990A. Changes using tuneECU are:

    Idle setting: 40c and 65c boxes set at 1650 rpms

    F-L setting: 1000 rpms to 12, 1300 to 5 and the rest are set to 0.

    ***Note: I read you don't want to zero out these settings at too low an rpm. See: http://www.triumphrat.net/ecm-and-f...tuning-link-on-dynojet-250-a.html#post1451505

    I started at 1000, 1300 and 1450 set to stock and 2000 set to 5. I still had some unwanted jerkiness, so I moved the 5 and zero's to lower RPM's. I rode it between each setting and I like where I have it now until I can run it on a dyno with a gas analyzer.

    SAI checkbox: Disabled

    O2 Sensor checkbox: Enabled

    2nd Throttle checkbox: Enabled

    I just ran some slow speed stuff around my neighborhood using small throttle openings only and I have to say it is pretty doggone smooth. I can still make the bike lurch in some closed to open throttle transitions, but overall these settings are quite acceptable for me.

    Just a note - I run the G2-400 throttle cam and the football shaped secondary butterflies from the guy over at superduke.net.

    Hi - just curious what mileage you got with the Ack mapping? On my 2008, I had the dealer swap to the "open" map which I assume is this one. Now I get around 29 MPG, average.. Yikes.

    Yeah, mileage is crap. Somewhere around 30 MPG + or -. I did get the advtank this last summer, so that helps range quite a bit.

    I really didn't want the Akropovic map loaded, but that is what they ended up doing since I brought it in for a software update and it already had the FMF pipes on it. I decided to live with it, and did enjoy how the engine ran.

    Since I now have the 2 to 1, I plan to remap the bike sometime this winter.

    After looking at the TuneECU software, it appears that there are quite a few layers underneath that aren't accessible. I was hoping to see some kind of configuration for the low octane switch. Does it just do an across the board ignition retard by x number of degrees, or is it more involved than that? Also, if the O2 sensor is switched on, at what rpm and throttle range is it active, and what A/F ratio is it looking for? Finally, does the ambient map sensor do some kind of trim adjustment on the fueling based on atmospheric pressure in all throttle and rpm ranges?
