KTM 990 Adventure ECU remap – an owner emails (from Norway!)

By 27th September 2013 ECU Remap, KTM, Owner's Words

All the way from Norway Asbjørn rode to Eye Green for his ECU remap and rode home again! He was kind enough to drop us a line afterwards and for general information, opening up the secondary butterflies 100% is not a good idea…

Hi Gill

There is a big difference – it’s a whole new bike to ride. The last bit of road leading to my house there are a lot of speed bumps and winding turns at low gears and low speed. Before the remap I had to do a lot of clutch work but now I don’t have to do any.

I’ve downloaded the Tune ECU program and ordered the cables like Mark suggested (since I live so far away and since a KTM service tech might load a KTM map and deleting Mark’s map. So I’ve been looking through the original map and the map Mark has made.

I do have a couple of questions: There is still some on/off twitchiness in the 3500-4000 rpm range. Haven’t pinpointed it exactly where and when jet since I haven’t done too much slow driving in lower gears. Will it help changing F-L switching for those ranges.

I’ve been reading the forums and there is talk about that opening 2nd throttle to 100% all through the map (effectively disabling it) and that it has a positive effect. In the map Mark has made the 2nd throttle is less open below 6500 rpm all the way up to 60% throttle. Does the 2nd throttle have anything to do with air/fuel mixture? And would opening the 2nd throttle to 100% all through the map work against the adjustments or would it work with?  

Thanks a lot!

Regards,

Asbjørn
