Hi,

I recently invested in a cable so I could play around with TuneECU, so I could hopefully diagnose a few problems - without much luck me thinks !!

Anyroadup - I'd really like to try a new map on my 2006 Tiger 955i, but I'm struggling to pin down a simple step by step procedure for someone who's not familiar with the TuneECU software. Where do I find the TOR map, how to I unload the current tune, how do I upload the new tune ?? Are there any better maps out there to add a bit of power and torque to Tiger ??

Many thanks in advance,
Graeme  :icon_biggrin:

Regards,
Graeme.

Lots of videos to be found on this topic.

This one is for a 1050 but the general idea is the same for all bikes:

Another one, for a Daytona, same principle:

Be patient and don't change anything until you know what you are doing!

Ha, thanks Nick, now you tell me, after I couldn't resist resetting the TPS, then reading that you shouldn't just reset it, you've got to wait until voltages stabilize, reset, etc  :icon_lol:

Thanks for the info, will have a look  :icon_biggrin:

Go to the TuneECU website and read the manuals.  And then do it again, over and over again until you have a grasp of what you're doing.  I spent weeks reading and re-reading everything I could find in the early years.  If you jump in quick you'll be sorry. 

Rule one:  If it's running ok don't eff with it; you'll spend hours chasing ideas of what might improve whatever you perceive to be wrong only to end up worse than when you started. I know because - over the years - I've done exactly that.  I've done my learning, and idiotic mistakes in full view of the world.  See my tag "I make the mistakes so you don't have to"??? That's exactly what I'm talking about.  Knowledge doesn't come cheap.

Now, if you still want to play ....  good luck  :thumbsup

Oh, and one thing I learned recently; the ECU stores all this remapping activity.  Mine shows 82 remaps.  Imagine what that's going to do to the resale value (if I actually cared) ..  :icon_rolleyes:

So mines a relative virgin having only been "Mapped", 9 times.  Could be the start of a new euphemism here, "Gave the old girl a good re-mapping last night"

10173 will work fine.  You can play around with custom maps but bear in mind you don't know what else on the bike it came from was changed and what in the map has been changed unless you do the analysis.

Don't mess with timing unless you REALLY know what you're doing.  If you screw up the fuelling it'll just run rough or not at all.  If you screw the timiing you can do proper damage.
