Suggestions needed for which map
« on: 30 June, 2018, 06:02:45 PM »
Hi,
I've got a completely stock '08 1050 ABS I recently bought with no mods. I'm going to give it a decat and a low Mivv pipe. I've purchased a cable and will be downloading and installing the software.
Which would be the best map for this?
Thanks in advance!

Before you do the map bit, open the airbox, check the air filter, and take out the dog bone (you'll know it when you see it) to open up the air flow a little bit.

Hook the tank back up, but don't put it back in place.  Get a 2x4 across the frame to set the tank on.

You'll now be able to see the throttle bodies.

Check to make sure they're in sync.  If not, fix them now.

Then, put it all back together (with a clean air filter) and then do your decat and new pipe.

Have TuneECU read your current map.  Save it off to a drive.  Patience with this step, since it might take a while to read your map.
Download a map.  I'd suggest starting with 20542.

Then enjoy yourself as  you try to figure out which map is best.

Since the maps are easy to load, I'd start with one, ride it for a bit, download another, repeat.

I hope you have an A/C garage!

"Which way you going?" they asked.
After some thought, I replied, "Doesn't matter, as long as I'm going."

Yes indeed, as TR says, there are lots of tunes for you to give a try to see which one suits your bike and riding style best.

Try them all, for at least a week (unless you find a really bad one), making notes as to what you do like and don't like.

Good luck  :031:

Check Dikman's tune list, after the most current tune for your setup would consider Dave's tune.   Check the sticky

Then maybe the Tor, or arrow road.

Bought it from a dealer with the 12K service preformed. Rather not pull it apart, how important is the dogbone removal mod?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it  :028:

Well if you're going to decat it and fit another pipe, allowing the air filter box to breathe better probably goes with all that. Probably Indy would be able to say if it's essential or not. But if you're going to all the trouble of a decat, then removing a piece of rubber from the air filter box isn't exactly a lot of work, IMHO ....  :015:

Course, what no-one has really said is if doing all this cuts mid-range torque, even if it does benefit the top end. Personally I'd just fit the pipe for the sound, and add an appropriate tune to make sure it doesn't run weak. Unless you're racing, the rest is academic.

Hmmm...so, just fit a pipe with a new map and forget about a decat and dogbone
