Dealertool question
« on: 24 January, 2015, 09:06:20 AM »
Hi, I currently have Dealertool which I used when I had my tiger 800XC. I now own the tiger 1050 and wondered if anyone else has used the Dealertool on their tiger 1050?
I'm told the throttle works both ways. I'll have to try that some day.

 A couple, don't think there still active.
If you are using it already the one license was used, you will have to buy another one for the tiger.


A tuneecu cable would be cheaper, if you find something tuneecu won't do for you then get the key.

The website is still up and running, I purchased it for my 08 Tiger back when the only alternative was the pricey Tuneboy. Still use it for routine maintenance. Easy to use (I like easy :002:) They should be able to hook you up with a new key for your Tiger 1050, picked up a second key for a spare ECU too.

The Tuneboy / Dealer Tool licensing was very poorly explained to me back in 2008  :087:

Just when I was finally decided on spending the cash, TuneECU came out and amazingly was free of charge  :028:

Just make sure you can do exactly what you want it for before you spend the money  :152:

Thanks for your input guys, where did you get TuneECU free of charge as this seems a good deal if all I need to buy is the cable?

Regards

Yes Jon, you just need an OBDII cable with the FTDI Chipset from Amazon or eBay (or anywhere) and the software download is free from http://tuneecu.com/.

It has a very simple user interface and just about everyone on here knows all the tricks plus the ins and outs.

Changing or refining your tune takes a matter of minutes :031:

Good luck :062:

The main features of DealerTOOL that are of interest (and not available in TuneECU) are it's ability to reset the service due indicator (the wrench symbol) and the ability to put the ABS unit in service mode (i.e. all ports open) so the hydraulics can be flushed/changed completely and bled properly.

Thank you. That's what I wanted to know  :062:
