So we can download the updates and have more settings for the launch control, even if we do not have race tools?
Yes, if you just want more control over launch control, one can just purchase the "2016-2018 Kawasaki ZX10R Launch Control Key
" and you'll be able to adjust the launch control through the software. But, for $60 more you can unlock the entire
race tools software package and continue use the OEM sensor by purchasing the "2016-2018 Kawasaki ZX10R Race Tools Key Only
" so that would be the way to go. You'll get a more refined QS control, better/more smooth auto blip as well as the option to use the engine warm up/pit limiter.
Also did you guys make it easier to set the launch control vs. OEM ? I am a little lost on the changes to launch control..
Yes, it's activated via clutch pull in and hold; you basically sit still, with the bike in first, hold the clutch in for a delay set in the software and it activates. At that point you can either use the launch control or simply back off the throttle to accelerate from the stop normally.
**2 - and pitt warm up is only thru race tools?
Yes, you would need either:
1) "2016-2018 Kawasaki ZX10R Race Tools Key Only
2) "2016-2018 Kawasaki ZX10R Race Tools
in addition to the "Kawasaki Pit Speed Limiter Harness Type 1
" in order to activate pit limiter and/or engine warm up.
**3 - Is there a launch control function for the gen 4?
Yes, there has been for sometime, 4 or 5 years... maybe more. It is shown on the website as "2011-2015 ZX10R Launch Control Key
". This will allow you to use launch control in your 4th gen ECU, but still retain the QS functionality from your Bazzaz setup as you mentioned.
My current Race bike is the Gen 4 (in Gen 5 clothes) and I have a bazzaz TC/QS/FI with Ghul flash....but I want to flash using Woolich...will I need to go back to OEM spects to flash with woolich?
You would likely want to send back to Guhl to be unlocked first. The guy who hacks all of Guhl's ECUs and writes his software for Guhl, Marlin, has made it that if an ECU is attempted to be reflashed with any other software, it then locks the ECU and it has to be sent to Guhl to be reset for which charges may apply. I have seen it personally on an H2 which he was then charged an additional $150-$170 to have it reset on top of what he paid for the original flash. So maybe if it were an older flash from like 2011-2012 you'd be okay to use the ECU unlock utility within the software, but anything more recent than that, I'd play it safe and send it to him to be unlocked first back to the 100% unlocked OEM state, then reflash with the WRT software.
