This is a really fantastic deal and somebody should scoop this up! ECU part #s for the 4th gen make it seem like it will be directly compatible for any 2011 (like yours) but not 2012-2015?!? That doesn't make sense to me and I imagine it would work on any 2011-2015. The 2011 ECU has a distinct part number. If I was shopping for another ECU I'd be curious to know what altitude it was tuned at and for what octane pump gas.

ADD and OCD describes MEE

Once I become curious about something I need to see it through to the end. I'm also booking a dyno session and started thinking I should just buy this Schnitz tune and see if it outperforms my current off the shelf tune. I figured my curiosity could help a seller and a buyer here so I might as well post up what I'd found.

Ultimately, I don't know if this Schnitz tune will outperform my current one so I'm going with a custom dyno session. For shits and giggles I also want a flame tune on map #2 and to keep low power mode on #3 for the newbs. I always tell people my bike is the village whore. Everybody gets to ride her as long as they have the proper license.

ZX Racer, care to school us on the E85 tune? It's might be tempting even for somebody like myself since the price reflects the value of an ECU alone and you're throwing in 3 tunes for free. (Listen up newbs! Here's my shameless but valid plug for this great price).

I know a little about E85 but none of the finer points. I understand that forced induction needs an E85 meter to measure the quality of the fuel coming out of the tank. The ECU will self adjust for sub-par E85 (i.e. E84, E83, E82 etc.) or an E85/gas mix when the tank had gas left over before it was re-filled with E85. How would this ECU work? Would it require a complete fuel system purge before switching maps or can you safely keep it on a certain map while you burn through the blend?

E85 is good fuel to run both n/a and boost, big bonus is its way cheaper than mr12 but does require more fuel so you have to tune for it but makes more power over pump gas, also can leave in tank and dont have to drain like you need to with mr12. I have the tunes setup when you switch different power mods on fly.

Just look at it this way e85 is poor man fuel to make more power lol.

Zed, I think I can jump in to answer that question. I'm fairly certain it won't require larger injectors. Factory injectors will have unutilized flow capacity that can compensate for a higher volume of E85. Now that I think about it, I can also speculate as to which map you'd run while fueling a gas/E85 mix. It must be the E85 map since the higher flow rate would just run a rich A/F mix on part gas and the timing would also be retarded since E85 is higher octane. Both safer conditions than the opposite.

Good info. Thanks Porschenut.
