    Yes, EU maps work, but there is no change that I can tell. There is some change between US and EU since the MD5# is different, but looking at the tables, I can't figure out what.

    Cable received, thanks Ken :clap Let the games begin!

    I see the map I'm currently running has been posted to TuneECU already:
    KM601US0704501
    When connected to the ECU it also reports the map as 601EU0902002 which is listed for the KTM 990 Adventure R All years ...
    Edit: I just figured out that was the last map I had opened (I was trying out the S/W)

    Another thing I noticed was my throttle only goes from 1% to 96%.
    My Repair Manual only goes up to '06 models so it does not include EFI '07s...can anyone confirm the reference voltages listed are the same for EFI bikes?

    Who's gonna upload the 07-08 US Akra map :deal

    07-08 US Akra map is already uploaded. KM601AK0704501.
    Voltages are correct, but if you read the link to the SD forum in the 2nd post in this thread, that will give you all the info you need on the TPS.

    Ok, lets play.

    I found the same reading on the throttle opening on my 07 when cold from 1% to 96%.
    EDIT: (my voltage was .66 cold and closed throttle.) shit, or was that while i had it running... i will have to recheck that one today.

    Also found a few error codes..
    TPS..low volt or short?......p0122
    Front injector circuit malfunction?....p0201
    Air inlet temp. i remember doing that one....p0113

    Also what would be an aceptible diference in the throttle body sink.
    I was at 3 or 4 bars when i read mine and they would fluctuate a bit but the numbers looked something like this... 377 and 365

    As for the voltages, i think they are the same. It looks like we are aiming for 3.6v or is it 3.8v with wide open throttle, Hoping that those that have done this will chime in with there experience with this.....Please correct me if i am wrong..



    from the SD forum....
    And one more.

    An update on this post:


    This is what he told:

    just emptied my second tank,

    6.6 l/100km in mixed traffic / driving style, some highway, some traffic jams, some B-roads, some wheelies etc.

    But the smoothness remains a real salvation for the 990 to drive now! on the motorway there is even a kind of peace now, which was not there before
    ... at first, the engine was lightly continuously hunting, and now she is totally stable and peaceful. But such a small difference has a very large impact on feelings. I can also lower speed driving because she got more torque. In the sixth gear from 3000 rpm, I quietly go up, I never could before.

    I am going to turn the 02 sensors back on, and see what that does for consumption and smoothness






    I just did a quick compare between '09 map KM601EU0902031 and a '08 map KM601US0704501 and there is a big diffence between them in the F-L Switch map
    on the pre '09 modells the switch point is way higher (63% TPS on 3500rpm instead of 24% TPS on 3500rpm)

    I got my cable today. Thanks Ken!

    I´ll upload my euro map as soon as I have got the time to fiddle with my bike, if that map isn´t on the site already.

    Thanks,... ya it's going to be a a while before i can go for a ride...:vardy

    I looked at my TPS voltage again today and it was at 7 cold and 6.6 warm, so that is a bit off.

    Also looked at the TB's while running and they seemed to be 380 on the front and 370 on the rear cylinder, about 10 points difference at idle. When reved up and held to 3000 rpm they went up to 400 with the rear one now about 7 point higher? Hmm.

    Well at least i have a few months to get familiar with the software.

    I've noticed the switch between the F and L maps seems all over the place on the different maps, this looks like a place to that needs further investigating and testing.



    Also would like to welcome Tom and Alain, and say thank you.

    -This setting ->set this less than 10% from 2000rpm and higher.
    -Together with a TB sync -> main plates sync + second plates sync if still installed (disable first the second plates: by or removing them or manually open them. After the main plates are done, then enable the second plates again and sync them).
    -And finally a TPS adjustment.

    If i readed the different forums correct, this makes a big diffence.

    Thanks for posting that up, it sounds good! The user Power-Tripp over on www.triumphrat.net does performance tuning on an eddy current dyno here in the US and he's saying something similar regarding the F-L map switching. I 'm going to try these values: 9 5 2 1 0 0 0 0 in the F-L settings on my 2010 990R map and see how it goes. I like what I have now, but perfection may just be one check box away!

    Here's Power-Tripp's post:
    http://www.triumphrat.net/1451505-post9.html

    Here's his site:
    http://www.power-tripp.com/

    Regardless, this is fun stuff!

    EDIT:

    My Idle is now 1760 at 40c and 1740 at 65c for an average of 1750 here on the hot sandbar. I wound up setting the F-L switch to 9 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 to get back to smooth running. I tried the graduated transition and didn't think it worked well.

    FWIW, my 2010 990 appears to like a higher idle setting. I seem to recall a tuner I worked with years back telling me modern v-twins handle throttle transitions better with a higher idle. On my last short run around the neighborhood, the throttle was smooth.

    Take a look at the 990R all years in the custom tunes section of the downloads and look at those F-L switch #s.

    You have an 09 or 10 ADV R ? I think that was a dyno tune that works for those years...

    This link has just the 990 maps in it with descriptions, by clicking on the flag to the right of the file.... Linky
