Neonmarine Very cool, Iím not gonna trust myself with making adjustments just yet, so Iíll have my tuner do it at the track until I get used to the bike again. Good to know you can do stuff like that though.

Yes they do. It's really nice. All the base mapping is exposed and the KRT settings are separated. It makes it really easy to work with. I wired the ftecu active tune to the Kit wireharness. It made making a base map really fast and in addition I added the Aim MXS 1.2 dash. Ftecu's software pushes additional data channels to the Aim data logger.

bbsteinnewyork Well I just purchased the Ftecu update to the Kit ECU. I think I see why it feels flat in the mid range. I'll test it on Sunday

bbsteinnewyork I am using the 2019 kit and the first part of the throttle seems smooth and then I have a bit of a flat spot and then the power comes on strong again. The air fuel is spot on 13.1 in the flat feeling area. Does anyone else have this issue?

tonyugoh I had the chance to test out the engine braking and that was the cause of the bike cutting off just from rolling off the throttle. I increased the engine braking map from 1 to 3 and problem solved. The engine braking map 3 felt like the old 1 to me. I didn't have to change the bike setup too much and it didnt feel like I was free rolling into the corner either.

morpheusro That is why i asked if you are using a map or are you on default?
Another question is: can you describe as best as you can the weirdness of the idle? Is it when hot? Is it on cold? Always? Misfire?
Then we might find out what is going on. Maybe post a short video with the sound it makes.

The cooling fan is off with the kit. No need to remove the thermostat, you can do it if you want, replace it with a race one.
No problems as long as on a hot day you do not let it idle too much, then it will get too hot. So stop it if you do not need the engine running.
Also you can install a race radiator if you really want :)
I spoke with the Graves crew last week at thed AFM race a Buttonwillow. The said the weird idle is an issue that needs to be corrected.
As for removing the thermostat - most racers use tape on the radiator to stabilize the water temp with the thermostat removed.

Also what are expiriences without a cooling fan? Is it o kto do that for a trackday rookie? Am i too slow to do that or will the waiting times in the pit lane cause any problems?

tonyugoh That's exactly what I was just thinking after reading the software changes that come on the 1.1. It's the same thing with the fuel cut times and shift level. The 5 on the 1.0 software felt like there was no engine braking at all, but maybe that changed with the 1.1. I used to run the 1 setting but I'll try it in a higher setting until I get it dialed in.

What about the shift level that's defaulted to 2? I don't really hear the blip when I'm running the 1.1 software like I do with the 1.0. I'm thinking I should increase that level too.
