My local dealer tells me that with the 2013 SMT I won't be able to download maps. Is this true. :ugeek:

Nope. That’s bull shit.
I have reflashed my 2013 with downloaded maps many times and my dyno tune was done on tuneECU as well.

will any of the 2012 Tuneecu maps work with a 2013 or does anyone happen to the 2013 Akra map in the US?

Don’t worry about what year, just get a map that matches your bike setup (air filter, pipes, secondary butterflies, etc.)
save your current map via TuneECU before you make changes.

Hey guys I'm Josh, and this is my first post. I hope everyone is doing well during this "masked age". I've been lurking here awhile but have a couple questions I have not been able to completely figure out, and am hoping you guys could set me straight.

I picked up a 2013 SMT back in March and (thanks to the wealth of information on this forum) have been doing some of the standard issue mods; Wings exhaust, RC8 velocity stacks (front only?) Rottweiler Intake, along with the PCV filter mod, SAS & canister delete, and Power Commander V. In addition I just removed the second flies as well (plates. shafts, motor & TPS).

- I had Rottweiler map my PC5 IAW the mods I knew about at the time i ordered it; Wings, stacks, air intake. Do I need to do anything additional in regards to mapping now that I removed the secondary butterflies? I see most are "unticking" this feature in Tune-ECU. Believe it or not, I do not own a computer, but maybe it is time. I am not opposed to figuring that part out if it is indeed necessary of course - are the bluetooth adapters worth a shit?. Would it make sense to have it tuned on Dyno, and does the PC5 have the capability of turning off functions such as the secondary flies?
- is Tune-ECU operational? i saw some message stating something about mama-KTM made them remove any "KTM" related files?
- should I remove O2 sensors?
- Any other suggestions or must-do items while getting this thing back together? its still torn down, throttle bodies removed etc. Apparently the mice liked the flavor of the sub-harness for the fuel injection...luckily it's a sub-harness and unplugs and no splicing necessary, and I found one on ebay, should be here Monday. Whiel its apart I have new plugs, and I suppose it would be silly to not check valve clearances.

Anyhow, my apologies for rambling on, please chime in if you can steer me in the right direction. i look forward to hearing back, thanks!

Hi Josh

Best to get it back on the Dyno if the 2nd flies are removed it will need to be remapped.

Thanks for the response Kev, I do appreciate it.

Would it be safe to assume that a tuner would be able to change any parameters using the PCV, the same that one could using tune-ecu? Are there instances where you would need to use both platforms?

If you grab the auto tune for the PCV you wouldn't really need a Dyno but you would need a computer to commit the changes from the auto tuner.

I suspect you have to disable the secondary flies on the TuneEcu otherwise you'll get a warning on the dash from having them unplugged.

The auto tune would also replace your stock o2 sensors.

Hi BigRed,

2 quick questions if I may:
- did you get a chance to check what your TPS voltage was set to?
- was your #22 map done to hit a constant AFR target?

Finally got a chance to get the bike out of mothballs and given the lockdown, have a bit of time to play with it :D

So is TuneECU worth getting even though you wont run it on a dyno. Like are there a settings to change if i have a leovince aftermarket exhaust or if it’s just stock are there still settings to change to make it better/smoother? And where do I purchase this TuneECU ? I have the -2013 modell and live in Sweden. 🙂

I'm thinking about uploading map # 21, the only difference is the air filter and exhausts. I have an ITG air filter and Leovince exhausts, what do you think about it? I live in the UK and the map is tuned in the UK.
Maps from Keva should I add 2% fuel in the whole table or within the RPM range?

A big thank you to Big Red and Kev for sharing this, I recently put this on my 990 SMR in Singapore and its almost perfect!

Could I ask @Big Red, do you happen to know your TPS voltage? I think it might need a few% removed here or there to adapt it to Singapore's 32 Degrees, 75% humidity, 5m above sea level and 1005hpa that's pretty consistent all year round.

There's a little bit of popping on the overrun and has the dipping idle with my TPS at 0.65v once warm and idling but it doesn't stall, it's just a little disconcerting. Will check the usual suspects like clutch switch and BGC but have a feeling it's a case of tweaking the 0% TPS column as the rest is nearly perfect with the following setup:

Rottweiler Air Filter
RC8 Front Velocity Stack
SAS removed/blanked
EPC off
2nd Butterflies removed but shafts in place and turned off in tune ECU
98 Octane fuel (not sure if Singapore's fule is similar to ANZ or not)

Would go for a dynotune but everyone here only works on PC5s and arent' interested in Tune ECU - it's so close now with Big Red's map I can't justify the expenditure haha
Hey SCB,

I'm also a SMT rider in Sillypore!

Can share your opinions on the Rottweiler Air Filter Kit ?
Did u also use them with the RC8 velocity stacks + the Fueling dongles?

Thanks,
Chris

So where can I find maps for the smt -13 with aftermarket exhaust? When I look in the library on TuneECU website the title of the maps is just numbers. How do I know what map fit what bike?

Hey Rakamora from a fellow Swede ;)

I´m quite new to the KTM as well, but trying to take in all the excellent information on this and other forums.

Have you read the first page of this exakt thread, there you have links with explanations of the made modifications done... For example

Ride it like you stole it ... :D

Hello all!
Long time lurker here, from Sweden, enjoying this thread åto bits!

I'll cut it short, up until recently I've been running 95 octane leadfree petrol (E5) in my 990 SMR.
Sweden switched to E10 a few months back in all 95 octane fuel and I've been running that on my 160 km commute to and from work.
Last week I started noticing a jerkiness on steady throttle.

Of course the new fuel is suspected and short-term the 98 octane which is still E5 May be a solution. The long-term cost is however prohibitive with 98 octanes...

Can the suspected E10 jerkiness be adjusted in the mapping somehow?

The bike's been running great for years, with a Rottweiler air kit, rc8 funnels, no sas, no second butterflies, slightly more open slipon and the Akra tuneecu map. Up until now...

Hints on how to tackle this is greatly appreciated!
