Going to be picking up a 2018 in a few weeks. It has the SC Project S1 titanium slipon exhaust. Now, I KNOW that with mods like these you need to remap the ECU or get a piggy back fuel module for the correct table. But, my question is... if there is no fuel module... how do you know that it's currently running the correct mapping? Is it just a matter of checking the spark plugs after awhile to see which end of the spectrum is richer? Would doing a run on a dyno give me better results? I'm buying from the second owner, and he has no idea if it was done when the mods were installed.
Without fuel module, you can use the OBDIILink LX/MX and TuneECU application. Not cheap, around $90 total.
Oh that's not bad at all. I was going to throw money at a PCV, but if this can get me the basics I need. So, doing some quick research, it looks like I want the bluetooth MX version. The one I'm seeing for $80 says for cars and light trucks. Am I looking at the correct model? Is there only one?
Looks like the OBDs are universal, the TuneECU app makes it bike specific. BlueDriver seems to be the better unit, according to Amazon.
They are not universal. TuneECU recently added support for locked ECU's, but it only works with very specific adapters. It will connect and read sensor data with most adapters, but it can only write map data with the specific adapter mentioned.
You HAVE to use OBDLink LX or MX, and it has to have firmware 4.3 or higher. Yes, it is meant for Ford and GM cars, but it works with Triumphs.
To flash the firmware, I just plugged it into my Chevy Equinox and flashed it with the Android app provided by OBDLink.
The MX looks to be the best route. I read that the MX+ isn't supported (yet). But, in order to get the correct firmware upgrade I need to find a Ford/GM product to plug into? Lame. But, not difficult to find. I'm going to hold off until I have the bike in my possession and can investigate.
