Common Tasks 

This description was created for the Windows version of TuneECU and can be applied
largely on the Android version. Deviations in the Android version will be added here by
and by, or can be read HERE
.

(ref to workshop manual for model-specific procedures. Some of these procedures may not apply
at all to certain models.)

Reading a map from the ECU or load another map on the ECU:
With Bluetooth connection, the map reading not available.
With Bluetooth connection, the reprogramming functions only available for models,
which are marked accordingly in the Bikes List.
Important NOTE !! With Bluetooth connection, turn off all others bluetooth devices paired
with your android device (headphone, speaker...) and put the Android device in airplane mode.

General preparation (Windows version):

  • low beam off.
  • For bikes without switch for the light, remove the appropriate fuse.
  • In order to prevent the drop of the on-board voltage, use a second 12-volt battery (eg from a car).

 Sagem and Keihin ECUs:

  • Connect the OBD2-cable with the USB-port on the computer.
  • Now connect the OBD2-connector from the OBD2-cable with the OBD2-port on the bike.
  • Turn on the computer and start TuneECU.
  • Turn on the ignition on the bike (engine OFF) Kill switch is in run position.

When in menu of TuneECU the connection option "Auto Connect "is deselected ( hook removed), then
select via the menu "ECU" the option "Connect " and wait for the connection to the bike (green flashing
status indicator in the lower right of the display)

Walbro ECU:

  • Connect the serial cable with the serial port at the computer and with the diagnostic socket of the bike
  • Start TuneECU.
  • Select the assigned COM port in the menu "Options / Interface / Serial", at this time the software still needs to be offline, ie not connected to the bike ("automatic connection" must be deselected in the "Options" menu)
  • Turn on the ignition on the bike (engine OFF) Kill switch is in run position.
  • Now select in the menu "ECU" the option "Connect" and wait for the connection to the bike
    (green flashing status indicator in the lower right of the display)
Note: For the Walbro models is when using TuneECU for Android, still a converter cable,
            FTDI-USB-RS232 required.

General preparation (Android version):

  • low beam off.
  • For bikes without switch for the light, remove the appropriate fuse.
  • In order to prevent the drop of the on-board voltage, use a second 12-volt battery (eg from a car).

Connection with cable:

  • Plug in USB-OBD2-KKL-FTDI-Cable into the diagnostic connector on the bike
    and in your Android device.
  • Turn on the ignition
  • Start TuneECU
  • In the ECU menu, use the "Select" option to select your ECU type (for example, Triumph Keihin)
    Note: For Benelli 899/1130 models (Walbro ECU): The selection for these models will only be
    displayed if you have connected the cables to the Android device. Keep also the 2-pin connector
    ready and connect it to the ECU only when prompted by TuneECU.
  • Select "Connect" in the "ECU" menu
  • When using a compatible cable, the LED flashes while connecting,  red,  orange, and then green.
    Now TuneECU is connected with your ECU.

Connection with compatible Bluetooth adapter:
Important NOTE !! With Bluetooth connection, turn off all others bluetooth devices paired
with your android device (headphone, speaker...) and put the Android device in airplane mode.

  • Start the Bluetooth function in your Android device
  • Plug the compatible Bluetooth adapter into the diagnostic connector on the bike.
  • Turn on the ignition
  • Start TuneECU
  • When you start TuneECU for the first time, select the Bluetooth adapter to use. If you start it later,
    all you have to do is confirm that the application is authorized to enable Bluetooth.
  • In the ECU menu, use the "Select" option to select your ECU type (for example, Triumph Keihin)
  • Select "Connect" in the "ECU" menu
  • When using a compatible Bluetooth adapter, the LED flashes blue while connecting, then red
    and orange, when connected the LED flashes green.

Procedure for reading the map from the ECU, with cable only:

  • Choose in the menu "ECU", "Read map", in the window that opens this, confirm by clicking on "OK".
  • In the next window that opens this, confirm by clicking on "read".
  • If the read operation is successful, the displayed message must ("Map reading complete") by clicking OK,
    be confirmed.
  • In the next window that opens this, read the message, follow the instructions and confirm by clicking on "OK"
  • Now save the map on your own PC with a descriptive name, eg as "My_Original_00000map.hex"

Now one's own map is saved, and may at any time be loaded onto the ECU again.

            FTDI-USB-RS232 required.


Attention!! For K?M690 models, order of operations note:
With Bluetooth connection, the map reading and reprogramming functions are not available
for many models. Exceptions are in the
compatibility list.
  1. Flashing the EP-map, after the flashing of the EP-map, turn off ignition, wait about 10 seconds
    and switch on the ignition again, slowly rotate the Throttle until full throttle then slowly close the throttle,
    turn off the ignition.
  2. Only now flashing the FI map, after data transfer is a reset the adaptation required.

    For all required further steps, such as TPS reset or adaptation reset, please refer to the instructions below
    on this page.

    Note: To start the engine must the fuse, from the light, be reinstalled.


    Attention !! For Aprilia ride by wire models, after reprogramming.
    After reprogrammin  you must do a Handle Self Learning and after cycling the ignition OFF/ON do the Throttle Self Learning.  (Android Vers.)

    The clean map write has no calibration for the ride by wire.

    ECU restore, after a failed download:
    With Bluetooth connection, are not available for many models.
    Exceptions are in the compatibility list.
    Important NOTE !! With Bluetooth connection, turn off all others bluetooth devices paired
    with your android device (headphone, speaker...) and put the Android device in airplane mode.

    Recovery (except  Walbro ECU): 

    • In Map screen with the right map for you bike opened, connect to you bike and follow the instructions
      "Turn ignition off and on (5s)" (wait 5s before switch on). 
    • After 3 times the app ask you to do the recovery.
    • Then click OK and wait until the recovery has been made and confirm this.
    • Now wait until TuneECU reconnected to the ECU and then download the map once again on the ECU.


    Attention! must for the recovery process in TuneECU definitely a matching map to be opened, best a matching OEM map.

    Recovery of the Walbro ECU with the Windows version of TuneECU:
    Note: For the Walbro models is when using TuneECU for Android, still a converter cable,
                FTDI-USB-RS232 required.

    • Wait for the message "ECU not responding ..." and select Cancel  
    • Select menu "ECU" <Recovery>
    • Always follow the instructions on the screen.
    • On the final process, the final message "ECU fully restored" Confirm by clicking "OK"
    • Attention!  Remove in any case the 2-pin plug before turning off the ignition.

    Note: When the restore operation was successful, thereby the original map has been restored.
                You must restart in this case, the data transfer of your personalized maps again.

    Attention! Note for the Walbro: Remove in any case the 2-pin plug before turning off the ignition.
    Note: For the Walbro models is when using TuneECU for Android, still a converter cable,
                FTDI-USB-RS232 required.


    The following changes apply to the Android version of TuneECU and Walbro ECU

    Recovery of the Walbro ECU models via Android_Vers.:

    • Menu "ECU" <Select> Benelli 899/1130 (This item appears only if you have a USB cable
      plugged on the android device)
    • Menu "ECU" <Connect>
    • Wait for the (first) message "ECU is not responding ..." and select OK
    • Select menu "ECU" <Reprogram>
    • Follow the instructions on the screen.
    (of course you must be in the Map screen with a Map for your bike opened)

    For all ECUs applies:

    The recovery process may take several minutes, sometimes succeeds in restoring not on the first try,
    so do not lose patience and above all create a sufficient power supply, because that is the most important
    prerequisite for a restore.

    Here a step by step instruction to download a new map to your ECU. These instructions were
    used
    on a Speed Triple 1050 model 2010 (performed with the Windows version of TuneECU):

    You don't need any tools. Remove your seat and the ECU cable connector is just sitting in front of the fusebox
    (behind the tank)

    • Start your computer
    • Plug the OBD2-cable into the USB-port from your computer.
    • Start TuneECU - select the map view / edit mode.
    • Plug the OBD2-cable into the OBD2-Port from your bike.
    • Pull the headlight fuse and optional the tailight fuse (save battery - Keihin ECUs don't like a voltage drop). 
      The 2 fuses are marked on the underside of the fusebox cover. 20amp and 5 amp respectively
    • Turn on ignition (kill switch in run position, do not start the engine)
    • Select Connect from TuneECU menu (it may auto-connect)
    • Optional: On the TuneECU menu - Read your map (this backs up your ECU's current map on the bike)
      and store this on your computer.
    • Now choose from the menu TuneECU, select File -> Open your new map file. Attention! Make sure that
      this map is suitable for your bike.
    • Select download to the bike - this takes about 1 - 2 minutes
    • When finished - select disconnect from the menu. This is important you do this before turning off the
      ignition   as it "closes" the program mode on the ECU.
    • After TuneECU is disconnects - Turn off the ignition
    • Put fuses back in
    • Wait 10 - 15 seconds and Turn on ignition

    For the Reset adaption, if required, you have two options, example of Triumph Keihin ECU:
    These two options are not applicable for the Sagem models.

    - The 12 minutes tune:

    • Ensure the transmission is in neutral.
    • Ensure the ECM has no stored faults (DTCs).
    • WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTTLE, start the engine and allow it to warm up to 90°C .
    • Leave the engine to idle for a further 12 minutes. Now have fun.

    - Reset adaption with TuneECU:

    • Reconnect with TuneECU
    • Select Reset Adaptation (takes about 30 seconds for the menu item to come selectable as
      TuneECU connects).
    • Once reset and with Tune ECU still connected.
    • Start your bike. Make sure you don't touch / twist the throttle - just thumb the starter until she fires.
      Watch the TPS indicator at the bottom left corner of the TuneECU screen. When it goes green
      (after about 15 - 20 minutes bike has to come to temp etc....)  the ECU has baselined the TPS. 
      If the TPS light doesn't turn green after twenty minutes, don't worry and turn the engine off anyway
      as sometimes it doesn't trigger, and in our experience the job is done anyway.
    • Disconnect ECU on the TuneECU menu.
    • Turn off your bike.
    • Disconnect your computer from the bike. Now have fun.

    Reset TPS Sagem ECU, Triumph, Benelli & Aprilia (resets throttle to zero position),

    generally Applicable to all Sagem models.

    1. Ignition and Run switch on but engine off
    2. Double-click the Reset TPS button
    3. This sets closed throttle position to a temporary high value.
    4. Start engine and let idle long enough for the ECU to trim the value down to match the set target idle RPM (60 seconds), at this process, don't touch the throttle.


    Reset Adaption Triumph-Sagem-Lambda-models only.

    The manufacturer of Triumph motorcycles describes this process as follows:

    Fuel System Adaption — e.g. Daytona 955i, Sprint ST, Sprint RS, Tiger, TT600 and Speed Triple
    (only Sagem models with Lambda)

    The fuel system fitted to the above models is adaptive. This means that the engine management system will
    self-adjust air fuel ratio (i.e. the mixture setting) to its optimum level in order to ensure differing running conditions do not result in poor running.

    During an adaption, the engine management system examines the air--fuel ratio as measured by the oxygen sensor in the exhaust system and, if necessary, makes an adjustment. In some cases, a single adaption may
    be sufficient but in others, more adaptions will be necessary.

    An adaption take place when all the following conditions are met:

    • Gearbox in neutral, clutch engaged.
    • Coolant temperature 80 -- 100 °C
    • Airbox temperature 21°C minimum
    • Engine idling for 10 -- 30 seconds

    Once adaption has taken place, the settings are retained ensuring that adaption is not necessary every time
    the engine is started.

    Particularly for new bikes, where the engine has not been run-in, it may be necessary for dealers to ensure adaption has taken place before handing the motorcycle over to the customer. This can, of course, apply at
    any other times as well.

    To force adaption to take place, start the engine and warm it up until the above conditions aremet, adaption
    takes place automatically. Blip the throttle every 30 seconds to start another adaption cycle. When coolant or
    airbox temperatures are above or below adaption thresholds, allow the engine to cool or warm-up before
    continuing.

    To check that adaption has been completed, scroll the Triumph diagnostic tool to DIAGNOSTICS--CURRENT
    DATA--LAMBDA FUEL. in a correctly adapted bike, the lambda fuel reading should show 0.0% (though
    operators should note that the figure will continue to change during engine operation but will settle at 0%
    briefly but regularly.

    If reading higher than +3% or --3% are seen continuously, adaption is necessary and can be brought about
    in the conditions mentioned earlier (remembering that more than one adaption will be needed on occasions).

    If a stationary LAMBDA FUEL figure of --19.6% is seen, download the correct tune for the model in question
    and begin the adaption process as described.

    Finally, use of the SET LONG TERM FUEL TRIM adjustment in the Triumph diagnostic tool should be reserved
    solely for when replacement ECMs are newly fitted (or are transferred from another bike).


    In clarification, the following described process should be not so correct.


    1. Ensure bike is seeing a closed throttle position (CTP),
         if not, then perform TPS reset.
    2. Bike in Neutral
    3. Coolant temperature between 80-96°C
    4. Minimum air box temperature of 21°C
    5. Now with clutch pulled, blip the throttle to 3000 RPM and let it drop back to idle for at least 30 seconds,
        all with the clutch lever pulled in.

    Check bike is adapted by viewing Lambda Fuel.
    Figures should be "toggling" +4 to -4

    Don't forgot to check IACV steps are 20 - 35


    Reset Adaption, prior to version 1.9.6, Reset TPS (Keihin ECU only), Triumph only

    These option are not applicable for the Sagem models.

    Process will be launched in the test window (Reset Adaption).

    <Menu> ECU--- Reset Adaption

    After each download, a Adaption reset is needed.
    • Turn the ignition off and back on again.
    • Wait 10 seconds and turn the ignition off again.
    • Turn the ignition on.  Wait until TuneECU has connected automatically and select Reset Adaption
       from the ECU menu.
    • Start the engine and let it idle until the TPS light in the status bar becomes green – around 15 to 20
      minutes, at this process, don't touch the throttle. If the TPS light doesn't turn green after twenty minutes,
      don't worry and turn the engine off anyway as sometimes it doesn't trigger, and in our experience
      the job is done anyway.


    Reset Crouis Control System Triumph:

    ..... it may be, after reprogramming the ECU, the Cruise Control System stops working and therefore
    needs to be reset.

    For cruise control models with "accelerate / decelerate", e.g. Tiger 800, go ahead as follows:
    • Ignition key ON engine not running
    • Cruise control OFF,
    • Activate front brake switch,
    • Activate Rear brake switch,
    • Activate Clutch switch,
    • Twist grip switch (throttle in the closed position)
    • Activate cruise ON/Off switch,
    • Activate cruise accelerate switch,
    • Activate cruise decelerate switch,
    • if the CC light goes out the CC is reset.
    Source:  https://bit.ly/33eXPyd

    For cruise control models without "accelerate / decelerate", e.g. Bonneville Bobber, go ahead as follows:
    • Key in ignition with power on
    • Kill switch on Run
    • Activate front brake switch
    • Activate rear brake switch
    • Clutch switch
    • Negative throttle switch (push the throttle forward)
    • Activate cruise on/off switch


    Reset Adaption specifically for the Triumph EFI Twin models:

    This procedure should be carried out with a cold engine.
    • Connect your laptop to your bikes ECM with your OBD2 USB cable.
    • Turn the ignition on, wait 10 seconds and then turn it off again.
    • Turn the ignition on and wait until TuneECU has connected, then select "Reset Adaption" from the ECU menu. 
    • Once clicked you will get a "Reset Adaption Complete" message after 5-15 seconds, OK this.
    • Start the engine with the cold start knob pulled out and don't touch the throttle.
    • Let the engine idle for 15 - 30 seconds and push the cold start knob in, but only to the first indent and not all the way.
    • After about 3-5 minutes or sooner if you think your engine will idle OK without you touching the throttle, push in the cold start knob all the way. 
    • Let the engine idle until the TPS light in the status bar becomes green, usually around 10 to 20 minutes.
    • If the TPS light doesn't turn green after twenty minutes, don't worry and turn the engine off anyway as sometimes it doesn't trigger, and in our experience the job is done anyway.
    • Turn the ignition off for a couple of minutes to ensure the ECM can save the adaptive data.

    The manufacturer of Triumph motorcycles describes the way of the standard adaptation for Keihin
    models as follows.
    These option are not applicable for the Sagem models.:

    1. Ensure the transmission is in neutral.
    2. Ensure the ECM has no stored faults (DTCs).
    3. WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTTLE, start the engine and allow it to warm up to 90°C (60°C
      on  Bonneville, Scrambler, Thruxton, America, and Speedmaster models).
    4. Leave the engine to idle for a further 12 minutes.
    Note:
    If during an adaption cycle the conditions are no longer met, for example if the motorcycle is ridden, the
    motorcycle may not be fully adapted. The adaption process will continue each  time the conditions are met
    again, and the engine has idled for longer than 3 seconds.


    Following the description for the fast adaptation method with the Triumph Diagnostic Tool
    Keihin only:

    To start a fast adaption:
        Connect the diagnostic tool, select ADJUST TUNE (Map) and select RESET ADAPTIONS.
        This will force a fast adaption routine to take place in around 5 seconds. For this to happen,
        the engine must be running, it must be at normal operating temperature and in closed loop control
        mode
    . Under any other conditions (such as with the engine not running) fast adaption will not take place
        and may cause default values to be loaded, which may then require a normal 12 minute adaption routine
        to be run.

    The fast adaptation method is feasible even with TuneECU.

    Note:
    • Using the fast adaption method above with the engine off and the ignition on will reset the adaptions
      to their default (not adapted) factory settings. A full 12 minute adaption routine will then be required.
    • Both methods only adapt the idle area - the off idle area can only be adapted when the motorcycle is   ridden under load, i.e. on the road.
    • The off idle adaption area covers cruise sites from 30 to 90 mph (50 to 145 kmh), so the motorcycle
      must be ridden in this area to adapt. As it is not always possible for dealers to adapt motorcycles in
      this way, it is not a problem, then the motorcycle will perform continue adapting during normal use.


    Reset Adaption and/or initialization-run - Keihin ECU - K?M only

    990cc models SD, SM, and Adventure:

    After download from an new map, you must perform an initialization run.
    The resetting of the adaptation (Reset Adaption) takes place automatically when the map is downloaded
    and only has to be triggered manually if an initialization run is to take place due to maintenance work.

    • The 990s must be on the center stand, and are thus stand vertically. For SD / SM models use a Paddock Stands or the side stand with a piece of wood underneath.
    • The engine must be cold.
    • There should be the coolest possible air temperature outside, this can be very helpful for a lower fuel consumption.
    • Start the engine and let it run at idle for 15 minutes.During these 15 minutes, not use the throttle or any other functions.
    • The 15 minutes need to be strictly adhered to, and must not fall below. The time can only be exceeded by
      a maximum of one minute.
    • Should the engine go out, then re-start ONLY, do not begin 15 minutes again. (Source: German K?M Forum)

    If you want to perform an initialization run only, you must first reset in any case the adaptation.

    New in TuneECU version 2.3.5 for K?M990 & 1190

    Reset ECU after replacing or repairing the engine.

    CAUTION: To adapt the ECU to the change of parameters after replacement or repair with
    the replacement of  the engine pistons, cylinders or cylinder heads, a reset of the ECU must be performed.
    If you omit this step, the engine can have a dysfunction at idle for a long period.

    • Connect the diagnostic cable, run the program and turn ignition ON.
    • Wait until connection is established.
    • Go to the tab "Tests" and double-click "Reset Adaptation".
    • Wait for the message "Reset Adaptation done", exit the program and disconnect the diagnostic cable.
    • Run the engine at idle for 15 minutes without touching the throttle, check the coolant temperature, stop the  engine in case of overheating.

    TuneECU For Dummies: The practice report by "Ebster1085" from the forum http://www.triumphrat.net at a Speed Triple1050, model 2007(performed with the
    Windows version of TuneECU
    ):
    .
    This thread is for anyone who wants to begin using TuneECU and would like to avoid any potential confusion. It may come easy for some and work flawlessly the first time around, but for others, including myself, you may run into issues that can become major headaches.

    So, if you want the beginner guide to using TuneECU, these are the steps you should follow:

    1. Download The Software: You can download the newest version of TuneECU here:

    https://www.box.com/shared/pusg6v7nyd

    or

    from the TuneECU Website HERE

    I recommend after you download and unzip the file, you save the application directly to the C drive. Also make sure there is a copy of the TuneLibrary.dll to the C drive as well. TuneECU needs this in order to operate and
    will be part of the download.

    2. Download The Drivers: You will need a specific set of FTDI drivers for the cable you will buy, and you can download those here:

    http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

    Make sure you download the correct drivers for whatever operating system you are running. If you are unsure whether you have a 32 or 64 bit OS, you can find this by right clicking on My Computer and viewing properties.

    Although your cable may come with a driver installation disc, and although Windows can connect to the internet to find suitable drivers automatically, you NEED to use the drivers from the previous link. Download the drivers, create a folder in your C drive (I named mine "TuneECU Drivers") and save the driver files to that location.

    3.Buying A Cable: I think most will agree with me that the biggest cause for problems with using TuneECU is getting hold of a non compatible cable. You may hear others talk about a cheap eBay or Amazon cable they used with success, but you don't necessarily know what you are getting when you buy from these vendors. The only cable I or anyone else will be able to 100% say will work with absolute certainty is this one:

    http://www.lonelec.co.uk/index.php?m...products_id=32

    Regardless of what anyone tells you, I highly recommend you buy this cable and not have to worry about another one potentially not working. Trust me, its not worth it!

    4. Installing Drivers: Once you get the cable, this is how you will install the drivers. First ensure you are not connected to the internet by disconnecting any hardlines you may have and disabling wireless. Then plug in the cable to your laptop. Windows will try to install drivers, but do not allow it to connect to the internet by saying no to that option and clicking "manually install" drivers. Then you will browse files on your computer and point Windows to the folder location where you saved the driver files.

    On my computer, installation wizard never actually appeared, so I had to do it all manually. Simply go into devices and printers in the control panel, and you will see the USB device plugged in. Double click on it to open it. Go to the hardware tab, and then click on properties, and then change settings. Then go to the driver tab, and click update drivers. Again, tell windows you want to manually browse, and point windows to the file location where you saved the drivers.

    Once you do this, you should get a message saying the drivers were updated correctly. You will then get another message saying that windows could not install the drivers. No need to worry, this is windows trying to install driver software for the serial port you are using with the cable. Again, go into devices and printers, click hardware, and now you will see two items, the USB converter which you just updated, and a serial port. Double click on the serial port, and follow the same instructions as above to update the port with the FTDI drivers.

    While you are doing all this, I also recommend you turn off VCP for the driver as it is unnecessary and could potentially interfere with your ability to connect. With the cable plugged in, go to devices and printers, double
    click on the USB converter, click on the converter, click on properties, go to the advanced tab, and unclick VCP.

    5. Finding A Tune:
    You can find a tune you want for your specific model number (based on vin number) from here: Tune_List

    Create a folder in your C drive, I named mine "TuneECU maps" and save whatever tune you plan on using here.
    In addition to the tunes from the TuneECU page above, you can share others with friends and forum members. Save all to the same location for ease of use.

    6. Connecting: To connect to the bike, do the following. First, make sure any antivirus programs on
    your laptop are disabled and that the lap top is connected to a power source. Also, turn off any screen
    savers or sleep mode settings, and go into power settings and ensure the screen never dims and the
    computer never enters sleep mode when its plugged in. Then open up the TuneECU program from where
    it is saved on the C drive. Turn off the autoconnect feature of TuneECU by clicking on the options download
    and unclicking autoconnect. Then plug in the cable to the same USB port where you had it when you installed
    the drivers. Pull off the seat on your bike. Plug your bike into the tender. Remove the headlight fuse only (# 8 for the speed triple) Then connect the other end of the cable to the OBDII connector. You will have to then have the key to turned to the on position, and the kill switch to the run position, and you should be all set.
    Do not start the bike.

    In TuneECU click on the ECU dropdown, and then connect. You should see blinking red light in the lower
    right hand corner which means its initializing. If all is correct, it should then turn yellow and then green as it connects and authenticates. Once connected, your vin number will appear as well as a battery icon which
    shows voltage.

    At this point, you want to read the OEM map off the bike and save a copy. Click the ECU dropdown, and then read map. This will take some time. For me it took longer than 20 mins and I left my computer which is why you want all screen savers, sleep modes, or screen dimmers shut off. Once it reads successfully, the OEM map will populate the screen,. Save a copy of this map by clicking the file dropdown, and save map file. You will want to save a copy of this tune to the folder where you have others tunes stored.

    Once you have saved the OEM map, you can download the new map of your choice. Open up the map you want by clicking the file dropdown, and then open file. Open the map you want from the folder you created. Once it is open, click on the ECU dropdown, and then download. This will begin the download process and if all the above steps were followed, you should be all set!

    7. Troubleshooting: If you encounter a failed download, or timed out scenario, there is a good chance it is because you didn't listen to my cable recommendation above and went with something else. No worries, now you just need to order the correct Lonelec cable and wait for it to be delivered from England which can take up to 7 business days. In other words, get this one to begin things and avoid any trouble.

    Just know that after a failed download scenario, you will NEED to have a map opened up in the TuneECU program when you go to reconnect to the bike or it will NOT initiate the recovery mode. With the map of your choice open, and the cable connected, try to connect, and then click OK when the recovery option is offered.
    This will recover the ECU, or in other words, download whatever map you have open in the TuneECU screen,
    onto the bike, and you will be all set!

    8. After The Download: Once you download a new map onto the bike, you will have to reset adaptations to get the bike ready to run correctly with the new map. Do this by going into the test pane, and clicking reset adaptions, then ok when prompted. You will get a message on the bottom of the screen saying it was done successfully.

    Once you do this, then start the bike, and with never applying any throttle, let it idle until the fan kicks on, and then let it go for another 12 mins to complete the 12 minute tune which is when the bike will re adapt to the new maps for idle settings. You should see the TPS indicator light turn green again which means it has completed the idle adaptation process.

    Then go out and ride! As you ride the bike through the rev ranges and such, it will continue to learn and adapt to the new map.

    Hope I didn't forget anything, and I tried to keep this user guide as short and to the point as possible. If I can help anyone avoid the troubles that I ran into, it will all be worth it.
