So I was talking to Bryan Livengood at Livengood Motorsports today and apparently there’s a v1.3 software update that has been released.

What do we know about that this?

I have heard about an upcoming "update" back at the end of 2017. From the conversation, it seemed like it might be more than just software update but might even include a kit-ecu factory flash. This was entirely hear-say kind of information so I wouldn't be surprised that it is nothing more than Fi Software version update you've mentioned. Current version being 1.10, also referred to as "Advanced." Advanced is a bit of a misnomer since it's not so much about being able to do more advanced things but rather certain controls are better. Such as quick shifting and engine braking. The values are the same as older version (1.0) but what they mean at the ECU level is very different.

Very much looking forward to hearing what 1.3 is about and what else it might entail.

From what Bryan was explaining, the v1.3 update “fixed all the problems” with the older versions. I cannot comment on any of this because I’ve yet to invest in the kit ECU.

Trust me, once my R1 sells I will be getting the whole system and start out with the v1.1 to get a baseline, then move up.

Wonder what those "all problems" are. Glad to hear that Kawi is continuing to support the technology. Much like with 1.10, it will be a purchasable item. Version 1.0 came with the kit ecu, 1.10 was about $50-60 at the dealer. Just need to know the part number. What's good is that 1.10 comes with a document, which explains the differences in the new, advanced version. I'm sure 1.3 will have something of that sort as well. Can't wait :)

@Lanister: Did you find that updating to v1.1 gave better results with "wheelie-control"? I'm still running v1.0 and have never been able to find a setting that didn't allow it to occasionally 12-o'clock and try to flip without killing drive off corners.

Then again, maybe I'm just no good at finding the right settings, and v1.0 is fine.

Sure it’s 1.3? Not the 1.03v? 1.03 is the version that fixed most issues before they brought out 1.1 but it was only available if you knew the right people.

I’m fairly certain it’s 1.3, when I mention the “latest update” and referencing the 1.1 and he immediately said a v1.3 was out.

I’ll ask the thai Kawasaki Team next weekend but I know they’re still running 1.1v and they’re factory supported Team.

The kit ECU flash will be coming soon as the 2019 FIM Superstock regulations change so that teams have to run standard ECU. So, everyone will have to switch to something similar to what BMW have been doing with the HP Calibration kits. Wouldn’t doubt the 2019 zx10 gets an updated ECU.

What's an "HP Calibration Kit?"
