Attention!! Very Important !! Basically TuneECU only use on motorcycles, which are listed in our compatibility list.
last update Jul-29-2014
Support is only for the software, no advice or recommendation will be given
on the use of maps. 
Except the brief descriptions available on the site,
no additional information will be provided on the maps, for any additional questions,  please ask in the appropriate forums.

Map Editing

This description was created for the Windows version of TuneECU and can be applied largely
on the Android version. Deviations in the Android version will be added here by and by.

Learning video on You Tube in English

On selecting  the mapping mode for the first time, TuneECU will ask for a map file (.hex file, downloadable on the Net) or read directly from the ECU. On restarting TuneECU the last opened map is displayed.
You must select a mapping that matches your model of motorcycle and its configuration (eg. type of exhaust).

<MENU> Display- Map Infos

When you select a map as in Figure 6, details of the map (such as motorcycle, etc) are displayed and can be updated (freeform text box) and saved as part of the map (.hex) file.

Click in this field to see information from the second ECU (KTM 690).
 

Below this are various tables that make up the map (click to select):

  • F1-4:main fuel table for cylinder 1 to 4 / RPM & butterfly opening or F3-1 corresponding to the position of the mapping switch on the KTM 690.

  • Fuel trim: Adjustment for the Fuel table F (in %).
    Right click on a F table,  if not visible, e.g. KTM 690

  • L1-4: fuel tables for low throttle opening (RPM  & engine load, derived from manifold air pressure),
              L3-1 for KTM 690
    These tables are used instead of the main fuel tables at low throttle positions.
    These tables are indexed by manifold air pressure.

  • I1-4: the tables for ignition advance, I3-1 and I-LOF (Low Octane Fuel) for KTM690
    I-Tables Daytona 675, at these model, are the I-tables depending on the selected gear.
    I (1st) = 1. gear, I (2 - 5th) = 2. - 5. gear, I (6th) = 6. gear and I (N) = Neutral

  • Ignition trim: Correction of ignition tables ( degrees°).
    Right click on a I table,  if not visible,
    e.g. KTM 690.

  • Air/fuel: the ratio mixture of  air/fuel (AFR)

  • Engine idle: Idling speed as a function of the temperature.

  • Exhaust Valve (Daytona 675): the position of the exhaust flap/rpm.

  • Secondary butterfly valves ( Daytona 600, 650, Rocket III & KTM):
    the position of the secondary butterfly valves depends is on the rpm and gear ratio.

  • Change-over F-L: the transition of the tables F after L and vice versa (RPM vs. throttle % open).
     
    For Benelli models: TnT Sports, TNT CR, TreK1130, TnT standard (05/06) and TNT R160.
    For the 
    models, TnT Sport, TnT CR, and TnT TreK1130 standard (05/06), Map1 (I & F)
    the maps is for reduced fuel consumption = reduced performance. Map0 (I &F)  is for open
    performance and maximum torque.
    For the TNT R160,  Map1(I&F) is for use with DB-killer, and Map0 the map is for operating
    WITHOUT DB-Killer, Map0 (I&F) is not suitable for use with DB killer. (Source http://www.benelli-info.de)

Fig. 7a: (Top Left) ECU information: Serial Number, map ID number, checksum and meter reprogramming.
Below this are various tables that make up the map (click to select):

  • F: the main Fuel table ( rpm and throttle position %).

  • Fuel trim: Correction of the fuel tables F (in %)

  • I: ignition advance tables

  • I Limit: ignition Limit

  • I Idle: ignition Idling

  • I Idle (N): Ignition. The (N) table is used when the bike is in neutral.

  • Ignition trim: Correction of ignition advance table I  (in °).

  • A/F1: Air/Fuel mixture based on engine load (in %) vs RPM.

  • A/F2: Air/Fuel mixture based on the RPM. The A/F 2 table works the same as the A/F 1 table when the motor is at full load. Full load and full throttle are not the same. Load % is derived from the difference in readings between the Manifold Air Pressure and atmosheric (airbox) pressure.

  • Idling: idling speed according to temperature.

  • Warming-up phase: Air/Fuel mixture dependent on the engine temperature.

 

Changing values and parameter of tables (advanced user):


It is advised against making changes to the following values as the installed map is optimised for your setup.

  • F
  • Fuel trim
  • I
  • I Limit
  • I Idle
  • I Idle (N)
  • Ignition trim


However if you have a dynamometer, it is always possible to adjust the values to achieve better performance, knowing that the best power is obtained with an AFR value of 12.8 and 14.7 for lower consumption.

Other tables can be modified according to your preferences:-

          A/F1:

Air/Fuel mixture in the relationship engine load (in %) to the rpm.

          A/F2:

Air/Fuel mixture in relation to the rpm. The A/F 2 table works the same as the A/F 1 table when the motor is at full load. Full load and full throttle are not the same.

           Idling:

 Idling speed dependent on the engine temperature

           Warming-up phase:

 Fuel/air mixture dependent on the engine temperature.

Importing a PCIII or PC-V table (PowerCommander 3 or 5)
<Menu> File-Import PC Table
(.djm table or .pvm table):
Applies *F-corrections* from a PCIII or a PC-V table  in the "F-Trim" table.
If available the Ignition table** will be imported into the I Trim table.

    *  includes support of "cylinder Advanced" feature, but not the "Gear  Advanced", in this case you must
       choose the "Gear" table to import.
  **  Only the first Ignition table will be imported.

For KTM User:
TuneECU follows the KTM convention, and commits the Trim 1 to F1 (F1 in TuneECU = rear cylinder).
PowerCommander not follows the KTM convention, in the 
cyl. selective PCIII- or PC-V map the table1
is the front cylinder.
You must change the values in the PCIII- or PC-V Map before you import the
cyl. selective PCIII or PC-V map
with TuneECU.

For Sagem User:
Unfortunately, there is a small problem, TuneECU can probably import "cylinder-selective PC-Files" to a Sagem-map, but from these "PC-Files", only the first trim table in the main table (F-table) it is transferred.
This means that before importing such a PC file, this PC file from "selective cylinder file" to "BASIC file"
must be converted. This conversion can be performed with the Power Commander software.

Reset Adaption Keihin only - Triumph models (not applicable for Sagem models):
After downloading (Fig. 12), a reset of the adaption is required.
Turn off and on the ignition, wait ten seconds and turn ignition off again.
Now turn on the igniton again.
Wait until with the connection re-established with TuneECU proceed :-

<Menu> ECU Reset Adaption
Then start the engine and let idle until the “TPS” status indicator (in the status bar) changes to green (after 15 to 20 minutes).

Reset Adaption and/or initialization-run - Keihin ECU - KTM only

After downloading a FI-map, start the engine and run at idle (without touching the throttle) for 15 minutes
and then the engine turn off.

990cc models SD, SM, and Adventure:

Reset Adaption Triumph-Sagem-Lambda-models only.

The manufacturer of Triumph motorcycles describes this process as follows:

Fuel System Adaption — e.g. Daytona 955i, Sprint ST, Sprint RS, Tiger, TT600 and Speed Triple
(only Sagem models with Lambda)

The fuel system fitted to the above models is adaptive. This means that the engine management system will
self-adjust air fuel ratio (i.e. the mixture setting) to its optimum level in order to ensure differing running conditions do not result in poor running.

During an adaption, the engine management system examines the air--fuel ratio as measured by the oxygen sensor in the exhaust system and, if necessary, makes an adjustment. In some cases, a single adaption may
be sufficient but in others, more adaptions will be necessary.

An adaption take place when all the following conditions are met:

- Gearbox in neutral, clutch engaged.

- Coolant temperature 80 -- 100 °C

- Airbox temperature 21°C minimum

- Engine idling for 10 -- 30 seconds

Once adaption has taken place, the settings are retained ensuring that adaption is not necessary every time
the engine is started.

Particularly for new bikes, where the engine has not been run-in, it may be necessary for dealers to ensure adaption has taken place before handing the motorcycle over to the customer. This can, of course, apply at
any other times as well.

To force adaption to take place, start the engine and warm it up until the above conditions aremet, adaption
takes place automatically. Blip the throttle every 30 seconds to start another adaption cycle. When coolant or
airbox temperatures are above or below adaption thresholds, allow the engine to cool or warm-up before
continuing.

To check that adaption has been completed, scroll the Triumph diagnostic tool to DIAGNOSTICS--CURRENT
DATA--LAMBDA FUEL. in a correctly adapted bike, the lambda fuel reading should show 0.0% (though
operators should note that the figure will continue to change during engine operation but will settle at 0%
briefly but regularly.

If reading higher than +3% or --3% are seen continuously, adaption is necessary and can be brought about
in the conditions mentioned earlier (remembering that more than one adaption will be needed on occasions).

If a stationary LAMBDA FUEL figure of --19.6% is seen, download the correct tune for the model in question
and begin the adaption process as described.

Finally, use of the SET LONG TERM FUEL TRIM adjustment in the Triumph diagnostic tool should be reserved
solely for when replacement ECMs are newly fitted (or are transferred from another bike).


In clarification, the following described process should be not so correct.


1. Ensure bike is seeing a closed throttle position (CTP),
     if not, then perform TPS reset.
2. Bike in Neutral
3. Coolant temperature between 80-96°C
4. Minimum air box temperature of 21°C
5. Now with clutch pulled, blip the throttle to 3000 RPM and let it drop back to idle for at least 30 seconds,
    all with the clutch lever pulled in.

Check bike is adapted by viewing Lambda Fuel.
Figures should be "toggling" +4 to -4

Don't forgot to check IACV steps are 20 - 35

After download from an new map, you must perform an initialization run.
The 990s must be on the center stand, and are thus stand vertically. For SD / SM models use a Paddock Stands
or the side stand with a piece of wood underneath.
The engine must be cold.
There should be the coolest possible air temperature outside, this can be very helpful for a lower fuel
consumption.
Start the engine and let it run at idle for 15 minutes. During these 15 minutes, not use the throttle or
any other functions.
The 15 minutes need to be strictly adhered to, and must not fall below. The time can only be exceeded by
a maximum of one minute.
Should the engine go out, then re-start ONLY, do not begin 15 minutes again. (Source: German KTM Forum)

If you want to perform an initialization run only, you must first reset in any case the adaptation.
