Stuffing up maps seems to be par for the course because I am in the same boat with wildly different front and rear fuel values.
So, the front and rear maps are quite different as a result of the interaction between the exhaust primary length and the difference in time between the cylinder firings, so don't get too hung up on that. The correct maps are best ascertained by looking at the output of the engine, whether that be the O2 correction at part throttle (in the closed loop area) or the fuel consumption (in the closed loop area) or the power (in the open loop area).
I have the original stock ecm and the racing only one for this 2000 x1.
Post a pic of the 'Race ECM', does it have the part number and bar code on it? I am only aware of one 'Race ECM' for the X1 (that doesn't mean to say there was not a bespoke type - just never seen it), that used the JA120 firmware IIRC.
Currently I have the race header and exhaust with the force air intake on it : although the original stock system is still there taking up space.
This is the same setup as mine
The bike has been troublesome to say the least.
Just needs love...
I have had some success with the last of the free version of ecmspy but
recently updated to ecmspy for mono. That downloaded fine accept that
when choosing the ecm type I think I ballsed up and chose the stock ecm instead, because when I attempt to connect to the bike I am getting this message.
This firmware connects as shown below:
The message you received, assuming you are connecting as per the above, suggests:
1. The ignition is not on
2. The kill switch is not set to run
3. The battery is flat
4. The cable is broken
5. The ECM is broken - failure to use a 5V TTL level RS232 cable can break your ECM
Can anyone please help? Also am I right in thinking improved maps are available through EcmSpy support.
ECMSpy is a tool, not a map resource. Be very careful with maps of unknown pedigree, there are plenty of 'tuners' around that have created potentially dangerous maps...
I am still waiting for an answer from firstname.lastname@example.org
I've not checked my email this morning
This might be faster.
Maybe, but the same people monitor this forum and the ECMSpy email. Always best to ask here so everyone benefits and everyone can share their experiences. It's da community spirit...
It also takes the load off the ECMSpy management who don't profit and have normal everyday lives...
But as an aside, if the bike does not run well with stock maps (mine is on the stock race ECM), correct static timing and correctly reset TPS, I would be looking for problems elsewhere. No amount of dib-dobbing with the maps can fix mechanical (including fuel quality/intake seal leaks etc.)/electrical (bad earths/corroded connectors) gremlins...
Must dash, breakfast awaits at AV8...
