Today, I put my bike on the dyno to tune it for the track season.
full Arata Exhaust
new spark plugs
First of all, Thanks to a felow member on this forum (Daxenox) who gave me his map. I use it as a base map and saved a lot of time. (if someone is interested, just send me a PM and I will share it...
Before the kit ECU the bike was doing 169,2 hp and 80,7 tq at the back wheel. This mourning, I did 186,2 @ 12 250 rpm and 88,5 tq @ 9000 rpm
. I was expecting near 180 and I'm really happy with the result. Both run where made on the same dyno by the same technician.
this is a 16,9 hp and 7,8 tq gain only by the ECU
The full Exhaust gave me a 15 hp gain last year over stock.
I found that the software was easy enough to work with despite the fact that it's a bit "old School"... Once you figure out how to read and write to the ECU, you're on the right track...
For those who want to get one of these, be sure to have a good technician to program it or find someone with a good enough map for you to start with...
If I had to start with the 0 map I could be still tuning it right now...
the kit ecu is:
Very good for track day rider or racer
good for the aggressive street rider or big time enthusiastic rider
not worth the money for normal rider.
if you can do a diagnostic run on your bike and don't wanna play with the set up later, go for the reflash. If you were thinking about the race conversion (Dynotronics or Guhl), I would say you'd rather buy the kit ecu...
If you have questions about the kit ECU, feel free to PM me. (installation, tuning, options available, etc.)
I hope it would help some of you out there.
and if it works great for you, you can rep it :)
