ECU OPTIONS

Recommended Posts

Hello!
 
I am thinking on doing an ECU REFLASH but I have some doubts, that maybe you could help me. 
What options to choose do I have?
Because it is expensive and far away from my home, I only will go once, so I would like to know everything before.
I appreciate in advance and apologize if some thread was already created on this, but I couldn't find.
 
 
All the best

There are too many options to list, and my advice is to find someone who will be doing the reflash, and work with them to define what you want done, and the options available to them to achieve your goals.
 
Some of the things I had done with my refresh with 2WheelDyno were to smooth out the throttle jerking, change the default mode upon startup, adjust numerous settings for better engine operation and smoothing out the running of the bike. I'm not an expert, and I relied on Nels to listen to what I wanted and make the appropriate changes. After he was done, we walked through the settings, and there were a ton of things he recommended based on his research on the ECU for the FJ-09. Pick your vendor and then start the conversation. If they don't / or won't work with you to figure out what you want, you should look for someone else to help you.
 
Hope this helps...

What doubts do you have?? And what are you looking to change? You might not need an ECU reflash...
 
You can mail your ECU or buy a do it your self kits which range from simple to complex...
 
The forum vendor 2wdw is what a huge majority of us choose for ECU reflash...all his tunes are top notch and are very very safe to the bike... One time fee will let you adjust your ECU as many times as you want, just pay shipping...he has a listing of available ECU flashes for the FJ-09

Vibrations is a very personal topic...you have a lot of options available to reduce Vibrations...lots of ideas posted in forum...

Let's not derail this thread about ECU reflashing. My question was specific to handlebar vibrations comparing before and after ECU reflash. I understand there are more effective alternatives to reducing vibration, and am not considering trying a reflash solely for the purpose of reducing vibrations.

I bought the Flash-Tune kit from ECU.com. It allows you to access their website and download fuel maps into it. They have several maps for specific exhaust set-ups that have been tested on a dyno. It also allows you to import your own fuel maps. I downloaded one from Power Commander that is set up for the stock header with a slip-on pipe (I have the M4.) Now it always defaults to A mode on start-up. It's still a little grabby getting on and off the throttle, but not like it was. And it's much smoother in the other two modes. If you're experienced/trained/skilled enough, you can also create your own fuel maps by tweaking the stock one yourself. It also gives you lots of other options. You can change the running temp of the bike by changing the temp that the fan comes on, disable the AIS valve, disable top speed limiter, disable fuel injectors on decel, etc. It cost a little more than mailing it off to be done, but I like to do things myself, and I didn't want the down time. I also considered that I may end up getting a full system in the future, and will want to reflash it again if I do.
 
As for the vibration, in my case, it did help at least a little. I'd already installed anti-vibration bar risers and pegs with rubber, so I had worked out 95% of the vibration before I reflashed. After the reflash, that last little bit seems to be gone.

Wait weren't you the one that asked about vibrations? And then said we shouldn't get off topic via a one-line reply to your question?  Just making sure I followed that correctly...but in response to your specific question, what ECU setting are you imagining could be altered to reduce vibrations at your stated "steady 75-80 mph"?  This is a mechanical issue not an electronics issue, so i'll vote "never"

I own four bike forums. I have helped hundreds get their ECU's flashed by 2 wheel dyno works. I have helped Flashtunes ECU.com find numerous bikes to test, so they can R&D new tunes for those new bike models, including the FJ-09 when it first came out.
 
Then Dyno shops all over the country buy that tune kit from Flashtunes and start tuning peoples bikes. I like and trust 2 wheel dyno works, personally. They are the tuner that I work with on all of my forums for a few reasons. Their tunes are often the most powerful, as they take the Flashtunes tune and improve it while still keeping the fueling in the safe zones.
Their cust svc is the best. Alot of their customers are people who tried tuning their own bikes first.
 
I have seen and read thousands of discussions on bike tuning over the years.
 
Absolutely none of them have had to do with handlebar vibrations associated with ECU flashing.
 
My advice is to do what I do on all of my dirtbikes. Buy a nice aftermarket dirtbike handlebar, Fill it full of silicone, then install it on your FJ-09.
 
Thank me later..
