Hi everyone, firstly TigerMike, thanks. I have PM'd you.

So I have now done a round trip - Kent to Cambridge and back, with the new map installed, and Im sad to say that I think It eithe rhasnt made a lot of difference, or hasnt worked at all. Still very choppy around 4k, and also doesnt much like running at about 2-2.5k either.

It occurs to me that as a rank novice, I might have missed a step. Ive been reading about "adaptation". Do I need to do that?

Im off around Europe on it tomorrow morning, bad timing to be having problems like this, but Im hoping someone has a pointer .

You lovely people  :164: (put that in for good measure).

Did you run through the TPS reset cycle and wait for the green light in TuneECU?


If nothing has changed, then perhaps the new tune needs to go through the adaptation cycle, to take full effect. There's nothing to lose by letting the bike run through this. Just don't touch the throttle, during the process cycle.

I think I reset it, but it was quite quick. Im reading that the bike needed to be warm, and Im pretty sure I didnt run the engine.

am I right in thinking that it goes as follows :

(stolen from another post somewhere).

1. download map
2. ignition off
3. ignition on, count to 10
4. ignition off, then immediately switch back on again
5. select"reset adaption" from ECU menu
6. click "ok" listen for fax sound, once finish
7. click"done" for reset adaption.
8. wait for green light for ECU
9. start bike, wait for TPS green light.
finish

I really need step-by-step here as Im a bit rubbish :-)

looks ok - on step 9 you need to let the bike run for about 12 to 13 mins,  this is the adaptation cycle (If i am wrong someone else will give me earache  :008: )
have a read of the following post which is in the stickies, this is the one i used & it worked ok for me a couple of times.

Hi Everyone,

Im back from France-Belgium-Luxembourg-Germany-Belgium-France, and with 800 or so miles under my belt, I can say with confidence that the new Map is a great improvement. Once I realised that I needed to redo the adaptation, then it all clicked into place.

Thanks so much to you all for your help, and Tiger Mike, Im especially grateful for the brake lever. Cheers.

Really happy for you that the irritation of having an 'It's a great bike, BUT....' is over

Glad the bike is running well now  :028:
Did you get any photos from your trip? I'm sure we would all love to see some  :169:
