    I just checked TuneECU downloads again. The only 990 reference to 2011 is for the SM, SMC, SMT, and this file:

    KM626EU1180231Map.hex OEM

    Have not a clue how it would be different in terms of mapping but the engine has to be pretty much the same as the Adv, I would think, but I could imagine that it might be focused on performance.

    If someone has the 2011 Adv "Akra" map, that would be a useful comparison to the 09-10 map for same.

    I have inquired at my dealer to see if it exists and he can get it for me. Will post back if I get it.

    Hi,

    Normally, you find the same cards in the TuneECU database. http://www.tuneecu.com/KTM_Tune_list.html

    This is interesting, I must have missed the 2011 map when I was fetching them...

    Anyway, the 2011 map looks a lot like the variations I've made in the all years R map, more fuel down low. I added a lot more than this map does and was in the process of paring it back down but decided last night to just take a shortcut and drop the 11 map in and see what happens....in the ONE WHOLE MILE I've ridden it to work this am it seems OK.

    Guess I need more testing :evil

    Everyone appreciates the continued timely updates and tweaks to the website and software! Would love to see someone donate the 2011 Akra and R maps to see if they have been massaged too!

    Anyone used this map as a starting place on a 2007?

    Wow, 73 pages later...

    Power - Tripp,
    I think with a base map and a loose guide on tuning from there you'd do well.
    I'd be happy to contribute to that cause!

    I find that my simple 02 sensor elimination has made a huge difference with the major issue, but optimization of power and driveability would be the ultimate goal while keeping moderate mileage.

    That's probably what most people (like myself) are looking for after reading this whole thread.

    My '10 SMT is silly fun as is, but wow the potential seems significant given what TuneEcu can do.

    Just don't have the background for reinventing the wheel.

    Thanks in advance to Tom and Alain. Hope to start utilizing this soon.

    Maybe the O2 removal gives some smoothness improvement.
    But i don't know if you are running the akra map, but if your mileage isn't going to be great.

    Recently i removed the O2's to connect a dual wideband lamda datalogger to my SMT (still some rpm errors that need to be fixed before i can really start)

    But the first results it is running very rich, a afr of 1:11,7 and 1:12,3 at low rpm's/throttle postions.(2000-4000rpm)
    The exhaust really stinks after fuel right now.

    Final goal is to set the map close to a afr of 1:14.0 in the closed loop area(1600-4500rpm at max 10%TPS) for milage purpose (i will reuse the O2's again) and set the rest of the mapping to a afr of 1:12,7-1:13,0 for max power.
    Both the L-map as for the F-map

    No, stock map and stock pipes currently.
    Have my Leo slip-ons sitting waiting. (and my slipper)
    Just a fresh BMC filter and the 02's removed.
    Gets 41 mpg on the highway and 35 or so fully flogging it.

    I know not to load the Akro map without being able to modify it.

    Clearly I hate the bike! :rofl

    Decided to upload the '11 Adv standard map onto my '09 Adv tonight using the latest TuneEcu.

    I went through the parts fiches first mind, comparing the two models and EFI, valves and cams are the same on both models, so hopefully the slight change (increase) in low fuelling (F an L maps) may see some improvement (smoother).

    I also noticed that a '11 Adv Akra map has just appeared on the TuneECU site, still looks much heavier on fuelling so I wont try it for know.

    I'll report back on how the '11 map performs over the next few days.

    I have sent Tom Hamburg at TuneECU.com a couple of custom maps for the '09-'10 990 Adventures running Akrapovic (no baffle) and Wings 2-1 (w/ baffle) exhaust. See the map info for more details. Knowing Tom, he should have these maps up on his site for downloading very soon.

    While not perfect for bikes other than the ones on which they were mapped, these should provide a good starting point for others.

    The map for the Wings 2-1 exhaust and baffle resulted in the following graph:
    [​IMG]
    Dashed lines are torque, solid lines are HP (SAE)
    Light green - as delivered.
    Dark green - w/ custom base map.
    Blue - final results.


    I hope this helps.
    [I will post the results of the Akrapovic map w/ baffle removed... soon.]

    Thank you so much for doing this! I have an 07 so it won't help mine but it will be nice to be able to see the changes you have made in comparison to the stock map to give me some idea of how it is accomplished. :clap

    Results of the Akrapovic exhaust w/o baffles, BMC air filter:

    [​IMG]

    Green as delivered.
    Blue finished.

    Tested secondary throttle blade settings from stock to 100% above 10% main throttle opening. The results show little difference from 4000-6000 rpm. But elsewhere... ;)

    Just trying to help.
    I figure these two maps should be a good start for the two more common exhaust configurations.

    Take a good look at the ignition tables, as well as the F_L Switch, and secondary throttle tables.

    Just picked up a new to me '07 ADV 990 and I'm getting up to speed to get this machine dialed in.

    Started by making an OBDII adapter cable:

    [​IMG]

    However, I had no idea where the connector actually was on the bike. Once I found it under the seat, in the ABS box I thought, what a PITA so I came up with the solution of putting an OBDII connector in the glove box.

    [​IMG]

    I also found a handy dust cover for the connector

    [​IMG]

    Time to get busy doing some engine calibration!

    Very nice ODBII adapter. Well fitted, and designed. :clap

    Now, to really add to this:

    Look into the Torque app for smart phones - designed by Ian Hawkins. Since you now have an OBDII connector, and you are using the VAG OBDII protocol, you can now use the Torque app and a bluetooth ELM327 adapter for a wireless connection to monitor your sensors and performance, or connect to the ECU.

    The best bluetooth ELM327 adapter I have used (at a reasonable price) is the ones made by Vgate, and sold on ebay, or from a few other suppliers on the 'net.

    [This works for cars/trucks as well. ;) ]

    I hope this helps.

    Tom has the maps available on his site (TuneECU.com)... THANKS Tom!

    What you will notice in doing map comparisons:
    Every table has been mapped.
    The Fueling is changed in both the F and L tables for each cylinder.
    The F_L Switch points have been altered to maximize the above.
    The ignition tables have been mapped to enhance output, as well as improve smoothness and transient response.
    Rev limit is altered for improved over-rev, and mapped further as well.
    More.

    The rider of the Wings 201 exhaust equipped bike is reporting improved mileage on his return from AL to FL. (Perhaps we can get Dave to post up soon.)
