Map file opening problem
« on: 16 July, 2015, 12:03:53 AM »
I have finally got my PC to connect with the TuneECU but for some reason cant open the Map I want to put in my bike. It keeps trying to open it with Adobe and saying 'It is not a supported file' What program do you guys use to open the Maps?  :183:
I'm told the throttle works both ways. I'll have to try that some day.

Open it directly from the Tune ECU program.

Well Im chuffed to bits with myself, I've managed to put the map I wanted on to the bike at last! Its actually not as daunting as I thought it would be. Not only has it smoothed out the snatchy throttle at low speed, its almost got rid of the rumbling vibes i used to get in top gear around 50mph with very light throttle, something which really was annoying me.
Thanks for your help day7a1, I followed your step by step instructions, and with a little help from my son getting the map loaded, its done. Very happy  :152:

What was the map you loaded? What mods does your bike have? What was the map that you replaced?

Glad you got it sorted.  :062:

The map on the bike previously was 20549 and I have the TOR can, which I believe is the correct one, but I found it snatchy at low speed throttle. After reading numerous posts on this sit I thought I'd try 20542 which is the arrow road tune and it's not quite as raw as the TOR tune, but lots smoother. All good.

How do you find the Pilot Road 4's? I also ride a hornet 600 to work every day and I have pilot road 3's on which are absolutely superb in the wet or dry. I'm guessing the 4's should be even better?
