Control Module (ECM
Sagem and Keihin models):
USB/OBDII cable with FTDI chip set and associated CDM (D2XX) ver. 2.06.00 drivers or higher.
Note: for Windows 8 & 8.1 from driver vers. 2.08.28, select here the driver package for manual installation.
From driver version 2_08_30 also works with WIN 8 & 8.1, the automatic installation via Windows driver update.
Drivers limitation for the USB-Tuneboy-cable:
The TuneBoy cable works only with the ancient FTDI driver from TuneBoy's own site.
For WIN8 unfortunately, the tuneboy driver is to install only with a trick. See here.
The problem is the enforced driver signing in Windows8 & Windows 8.1.
The hardware id of TuneBoy cable is different vs. a generic/TuneECU FTDI cable.
So even though both cables have same chip, TuneBoy cable needs the matching driver.
- Restrictions on the use of the serial TuneBoy-cable:
The serial TuneBoy-cable can also be used with TuneECU, but is a USB-Serial-Adapter necessary,
which has a FTDI-chip-set. Good example is here the Digitus DA-70156 USB-Serial-Adapter.
- For Aprilia ECU's, additional components are required, follow this link.
- For KTM ECU's, additional components are required, follow this link.
Benelli ECU's, additional
follow this link.
- For Walbro ECU:
only a serial cable RS232, a serial port on the computer, and AMP-Super-Seal-connector-6pin
Maybe You need nor a USB/RS232-converter. This converter is required if your computer has no
serial interface (RS232) has.
| Recommendation: You get a working cable, for example from here: Lonelec UK
Enter under search the term TuneECU.

You will need a way to run Windows (preferably XP) on your Mac. This can only be done on those
running an Intel Processor (so if you've got a (very) old one, you're out of luck).
There are different ways to do this:
- Dual boot (Bootcamp)
- VMware Fusion
cable driver is installed correctly in Windows.
1. Read the "Map Edit section" of the
User Manual carefully and familiarise yourself thoroughly
with the program before you begin!
2. Resist the temptation to fiddle before you know what you are doing!
3. Ensure you have the correct tune for the VIN range of your bike and its specification!
4. If you are not an expert in tuning EFI systems, keep to the Triumph OEM tunes or recommended
alternatives and resist the temptation to modify them!
5. If you are in doubt ask an expert. E.g. on the following partner forums:
Do not download tune maps
the ECM without
first ensuring your
motorcycle battery is
adequately charged, your lights are disabled by removing the appropriate fuse, the 16-pin cable is
connected to both your PC/Laptop and the 16-pin diagnostic plug of the Engine Control Module
(ECM) and the ignition is on!
Occasionally it happens that the download is interrupted, although we have kept strictly to the
It turns out that it comes to these interruptions, when the battery voltage falls below 12,5 volts,
even when connected a battery charger. Apparently the power of modern chargers is not sufficient
to avoid a voltage drop.
It works perfectly when a second 12-volt car battery is connected.
make sure the TuneECU or the Tunes are not stored in too deep directory
(this may lead
to the firing of the ECU!) or the map is not even loaded.
Negative Example: c: / tune / ecu / my / triumph / ecu / maps / to / I / myself have created /Tuneecu.exe or
Please store the map for example in: C: \ Tune or D: \ Tune
Please store the program and the "TuneLibrary.dll" in: C: \ Program Files \ TuneECU
This ensures that everything works.
