Just got done removing my Exup cable and motor and thought i would share. Thanks to Nigel for that push to get this out of the way. Thanks to a few members who took thier time to answer my newb questions on Tuneboy.
What Tools do you need :
Time: 30-45 minutes. Could be shorter..but I chose to take my time.
VERY IMPORTANT: Many here suggest you get a remap via Dyno or get Tune that contains NO EXUP that matches your bike setup. I read that your bike may lose low end torque or run lean. Customizing your Map will get rid of that issue.
Make sure you have a Tune Map ready for download for your bike.
Tuneboy or TuneEcu -- I have TuneBoy (To tell the ECU to disable Exup)
7mm socket wrench.
Take off the Right side Fairing.
Using the T30 Torx. Take off the silver Exup cover. 2 Torx screw.
Using the 7mm socket wrench. Take off the Exup motor cover.
Using the T30 Torx. Take off the Exup Motor.
Remove the electric plug to the motor by pressing in the tab as indicated by the arrow and pulling up. (I don’t recommend pulling it via the wires.) If it feels stuck you might want to shimmy in a flat head screw driver at the bottom and slowly turn it upwards.
Now the motor can move around to take the cables out.
Loosen the cable by turning A and D so that it goes down. This will loosen the cable. Once they are loose, you need to keep turning A so that the B part of A is almost out of that slot. Then you can turn the motor C as the arrow shows. The motor will give a little bit. It will allow you to pull the plastic parts of A and B out and pull the cable out. This can be tricky and seems to be what took the most time.
Now once the whole A cable is out. Do the same thing for D. The motor will actually go back the other way to loosen more for D cable.
Almost Done. Now to the Exup Valve Side.
Just pull the cable to loosen up the top and lower cable and take them out. Using a 10mm wrench. Unscrew the screws to the right. Pull the whole cable assembly off to the left. You are done.
By doing it this way, you don’t actually have to mess with the Exup valve itself. So if its not stuck, then its less work for you. The Exup should already be in the OPEN position. No need to worry about springs.
Final Outcome and look of removed exup cable and motor.
Important NOTE!!! DO NOT START THE BIKE with that wire hanging like that next to the exhaust pipe. It will melt parts of it. Tie it to the motor mount to get it out of the way.
WAIT YOUR NOT DONE!!!!! NOW TO TUNEBOY.
**Note: I have a custom Tune on mine. I just opened it and did the change with exup then redownloaded to bike
**Just FYI for those with Win7. Make sure your laptop power option is set to FULL Power. Sometimes the USB will disconnect if you dont set it to that after the download.)
***There is no way to tell if your EXUP valve has been disabled. Most here say if you clear the CEL and it does not come back. Then you are good to go. Makes sense.
Click on Edit
Click on Tune Constant
Uncheck "Exhaust Butterfly Valve Fitted"
Hit the save button
Download the Tune to the bike.
(Optional) Save your new Tune with notes that you disabled the exup. Then exit tuneedit.
Click on Error
You should see 2 errors regarding the valve and the valve motor (I think 1080 and 1079)
Click on Clear Errors.
Then let it do its thing.
Click on exit.
Turn off bike and turn it back on. You are good to go.
Under the ECU tab go to bottom clear codes options. easy peasy Thanks G_rat675
If anyone has any addition please let me know. I will be glad to edit.
