mindless wrote:Hi everyone at the KTMSMT forum my name is Daniel and i live in Sweden. I want especially say hi to kev and thank him for the guide to make a real beast of the KTM SM. I have made a lot of the mods kev done in your guide. First i tried to get the bike less on/off on the throttle with TuneEcu but didn't get any positive results. So now i have installed a PVC and got a serious tuner here in Sweden to make a customized PVC map.
I was choked when he said he got out 115hp on the rear wheel and when i tried the bike it was still on/off on the lower rpm as it were before.
I will take picture of the dyno chart and please comment if you see something wrong with it....

*Sc-Project slip-on
*2-and throttle system completely removed
*CPR FAB Rottweiler Intake System
*16T front spoket

*PVC
*Throttle handle tube mod

115hp... that isn't much mine is getting with the CPR box 123Bhp.
But again not every bike is the same but a BHP of round the 120 is reallistic.
What is see is that the airfuel is round the 12,8.. the ktm likes more a 13,2-13,4 for the power output.
So it is a bit rich.

My map is on the first page if you like to try it.
But i got RC8 stacks and the O2 enabled (The O2 give it a good milage 16-17 l/km).
Make also sure that the throttle bodies are good sync'd and the TPS is set correct.
Good luck

Yes that is correct, I would ride it first before you make any adjustment to the map so you can make a comparision.

I agree, don't worry to much about the overall HP reading as all Dyno's read differently. It is the before & after runs results I always look at.

I get 16 to 17 KMs per litre of fuel with the O2 sensor turned off.

Quick question before i take the bike for a ride with your new Tuneecu map kev.
When downloading it to the bike should "Use F trims for all F tables" be checked or unchecked?

There are no trims in the F trim tables so it will not make any difference ticked or unticked.

I am fine tuning this map on the L trims up to 1799rpm from tomorrow using my digital vacuum gauge, I will update my latest map later in the week.

Ok nice one kev. I have now downloaded the new Tuneecu 2.3.2

I open the Kev RC8 Stacks 13.7.12.PCV IMPORTED and downloaded it to the Ecu.
But then when i under "ECU" click on "Read Map"o confirm that the new map downloaded ok i get this map info?

This is a old map and in the upper left corner could say Kev RC8 Stacks 13.7.12.PCV IMPORTED ?

... good question about the "upper left corner could say Kev RC8 Stacks 13.7.12.PCV IMPORTED ?" Ive just uploaded the map and I get the same ... but it must be loaded because the difference in 'performance' is obvious.

Trouble is when measuring the 'difference' is that half the time I might be imagining things ... plus I normally ride off after one or two bars on the temp gauge but tonight I did the 15 minute reset, switched off and then rode straight off - did the warming up make a big difference?

The biggest difference for me was the almost complete lack of 'engine braking' in second gear when snapping off the throttle - I'm sure that wash't there before! Overall it feels more responsive with a bit more pull - much more eager to pull when the throttle is twisted. There was less of the slight hesitation that was there before - it seemed a bit hesitant at 3,000 rpm and below ... (not that I should be in that area of the rev counter very much, I know!) Sorry, not an expert and not the most expressive write but it did just feel "better"!

Or did zeroing the PCV map make a difference with more of the Tune ECU being allowed to take over the fueling?

Or am I just talking boll*x? Probably but I stand by the assertion that it feels better!

Cheers Kev.

Nick
