My suggestions:

1.  Unless you have a custom map currently on the bike and no other copy of it, forget the part about saving the current map--your step #2, because it takes about 2-3 times as long to do this as it does to download the new map.  I did this step when I wanted to save my TuneBoy custom map so I could use TuneECU to load it in the future if needed--I never learned how to use TuneBoy.  Note:  Because of the time it takes for this step, I would definitely recommend using an additional battery during this step plus a 1 to 2 amp battery charger...the BatteryTender Jr.'s are of little help with TuneECU, IMHO--I use the BatteryTender Plus with the headlight fuse pulled when downloading maps to the Tiger.

2.  Go to the TuneECU site and download to your laptop the most recent version of TuneECU and the instructions for using TuneECU.  Your steps #3 and #4 don't apply to the newer version of TuneECU.

From an old memory:  3.  Download new map...once you get the "download done" message, you go to menu, ECU, Reset adaptation.   4.  Start engine and let idle w/o touching the throttle.  Once the "TPS" status indicator changes to green, you are basically through...get out of the TuneECU program and disconnect from the bike.  On my last two tune downloads, it took only about 5 minutes (instead of the 10-15 minute estimate in the instructions) for the TPS status indicator to turn green.

Good luck,
