Here's a screen shot of a TuneECU example map on my crappy tuning laptop.
Notice the RPM limit on the left hand side next to other parameters such as the fan thermostat temp (c), speed adjust (%), and the intake flap activation RPM.
The reason why you might not be able to see a map is because you have to either open a map file, or import the map from the bike ECU to your computer. Opening the TuneECU program without selecting a map file from your computer or reading the ECU map file is like opening up a blank excel spreadsheet.
You also mentioned that the Parameters were grayed out on your screen. It could be because there's no map file loaded in the first place, but if you do have a map file open, they can also be grayed out because other areas of the map are selected. When the Parameters section is selected, it will allow you to edit them.
It's also worth mentioning that version 2.4.1 of TuneECU was just released this month. It hasn't been updated since March.
Before I updated to the new version of the software, I experienced an issue similar to what you mentioned., I wasn't able to edit the "Devices" menu (underneath the "Parameters"), in order to disable systems such as the air flap, exhaust valve, 02 sensor, SAI, etc. Basically, the "Devices" were grayed out for me, much the same way you said the "Parameters" were grayed out for you.
Don't pay any attention to the actual map. It's just a whole bunch of data from multiple files which I threw together in a single file to practice editing maps and copying data from one map table to another.
However, the "Parameters" are the same as what I run on my bike.. and since we're talking about the parameters, this is as good of a place as any to explain the way I have mine set up.
RPM Limit: 13,325 (I believe this is 500 rpm over stock)
Thermo Fan: 99c (Florida, city traffic. Helps keep temps from spiking. During the winter, I'll adjust it a few degrees lower so it blows warm air over my legs when riding in cooler weather)
Speedo Adjust: -7.9% (I have the stock gearing and tire size, but my speedo was about 10-12 mph fast from the factory. I calibrated it with a GPS speedometer to make it about as good as it could get.)
Intake Flap: 1000 RPM (I just wanted to keep it open most of the time except when it's idling. But I'm still experimenting with it)
Just out of curiosity, what are you looking to set your RPM limit to?
