Tuning, Remap my Versys?


Recommended Posts

ecu flash is good if cheap but it offers no flexibility and it will be locked again unless you have the flashing software and necessary things.

So, lets say, you want to do a map for city rides with fuel consumption on mind or another for spirited rides, it is possible with dynojet pc5 and autotune but not with ecu flash.

I mean auto tune is used by many from day rides to tracks so it sure works otherwise of course no one buy it, or buyers go to court to complain and it is in the market for a loong timelaugh.png

ecu flash is good to kill all engine restrictions as stated.

for ignition timing, you need an addition ignition module for dynojet.

I believe for proper tuning, both is needed but for only OP's slip on. ecu flash is enough unless no plans of future modding as it means another visit to ecu flash shop.

Cheers,

The main reason for the flash is I really don't think the bike is running great. I'm running it on Benzine 95 but I still get the odd flat-spot at slow speeds and puff of air when I apply the throttle before it kicks in. It's been like this for a while.

I have no plans to modify it as such, and I prefer trail riding than tarmac speed. Come next year I plan to change to the F 800 GS, maybe sooner depending on finances but in the meantime I'd like to get it tuned before my next run out around Kanchanaburi.

Thanks

@BBJ, if this is your problem and by the way this seems to be a bigger problem especially with the ER6/Versys model, just unplug your o2-sensor since it's fooling your ecu.

But in case you do this, you must get an 02-eliminator-plug with a resistor inside, telling your ecu that there is a sensor connected.

Please look here: http://www.powercommander.com/powercommander/products/ReplacementParts/powercommander_replacement_parts.aspx

The right one for you should be the no. 76423007 but idk (just scroll down). That's all, so don't waste any money.

Good luck smile.png

One good way - if you are so inclined - is to install a wide band O2 sensor.

Almost infinite tuning capabilities, can find the exact rpm where mixture leans or goes rich.

Dyno required.

If you change your o2 sensor to a wide band only that's a waste of money also, bc the oem-ecu is NOT programed for the usage of this sensor...

Not change - but add as a tuning tool.

It will tell you how much to change - and where.

Spoke to ecu thailand and they tell me my ecu has to be sent to Italy. Forget that! More expensive than the PC5 by the time they've done!

believe me, dynojet pc5 with autotune is the way to go with O2 plug they provide. easier, heaper, flexible and you can do it by yourself, especially for a twin. this way you dont have to wait for an ecu going back and forth to Italy for a month and you can not use the bike during this time too.

but to be frank with you, for just a slip on, it does not worth the hassle or expense to buy a dynojet pc5 and autotune or an ecu flash so think about getting an aftermarket air filter and collectors, mid pipes and make your slip on a full system, not hard and expensive and this way you get a powerful, smoother bike and you can create different maps for different usages anytime and autotune is there to adjust the maps after each mod.

Is there a stockist in Thailand, or an ebay revzilla type job?

Contact Power Speed Shop in Bangkok 087-988-4044 they sell Dynojet, Bazzaz and do ECU remapping and tuning on a dyno.

Their prices are close to US prices.

Try to find another place that can flash your ECU in LOS.

It's probably the same set-up as the one for the ER-6N- a smart local tuner would order this from Woolich and he'd have the tools to flash a dozen bikes (actually, I think it works on 14 different VINs) for 13K.

good idea rsd! maybe we be that smart tuner! as clearly no ones does it in Thailand nicely!

Flashing the ECU is the easy part- someone has to create the maps, and that takes a bit of knowledge and access to proper equipment (dyno, etc). Of course, more than a few places 'borrow' an existing map, make a couple of inconsequential changes, and sell it as their own...

i now a company that can do that in Bangkok.

but it is a good idea. if someone can make this type of ecu flash in Thailand, it would be great as one month waiting for ecu flash is too much:(
