Even if it makes sense, you are crazy.....

Let me run through that scenario for a bit and i'll let you know what I think.

Ed will probably chime in too...

Well, I won't argue lol. I was just so excited to ride, and I didn't just slow down and do things proper. I've learned a pretty valuable and expensive lesson haha.

Your alternate ground path for 12 volts going to the ECU probably did exactly what you suspect. The pop was probably a capacitor exploding....

Get that Microtec and move on.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

MicroTec has been purchased and is on it's way. After a fairly expensive phone call to Chris , I feel confident that this will make the MV quite a bit better.

Chris was very interested in the fairings that I have purchased for the bike as well. We're curious to see where the temps hover during summer riding with them. He said I should have it by next week.

I'm going to remove my fan switch as well. I'll program the MicroTec to have them come on earlier.

Pics of the fairings below.

MicroTec came in today! I installed it an the bike started right up! It's having trouble idling though. My wife was napping and came out to yell at me before I could hook up the laptop to look at the tune. I'll have to do that tomorrow.

I also purchased a Cordona Strain Gauge Quick Shifter with the ECU. Having some trouble figuring out how to hook it up to the MicroTec. I believe I have a specific harness for the Microtec and it appears to need some assembling. Nothing matched the included manual. I reached out to Chris, and he got back to me about sending me some documentation. He wont be back at his computer until tomorrow which is no big deal. Any insight would be appreciated. Wondering if this QS has the ability to shift up and down with the ECU. Some of the documentation hints towards that, but it's not definitive.

I'm pretty happy right now haha. I took it around the block and remembered how uncomfortable it is! Just gotta build that ass callus built back up .

I'll be reaching out to a few of you for helping me. I really appreciate all you guys have done to get this bike running again.

Very glad she’s running! You can probably have that 5SM repaired.

You must set the TPS first .... I am sure Chris sent the directions. After that the idle tune is next step... fuel trim and advance need to be set so YOUR bike idles happily.

Chris' tune, as delivered to you, is for another bike in another atmosphere (altitude, humidity, ambient temp). Hopefully he sent you the videos that demonstrate how to do these things....

Once the TPS and idle trim is set she should run and idle better than you have ever experienced before.

@esq'z me I thought that might be what I was running up against. Unfortunately, Chris and I had some issues with the shipping process, and the instructions haven't been sent yet. He said he should be able to get them to me tonight. I've done a fair amount of googling and haven't found much on the process. I do have the software and the USB -> CAN adapter so I can communicate with the ECU. If you have the instructions by chance, my email is [email protected].

I haven't been able to hook up the computer to the ECU while the bike is running yet. I'll probably get to that today. Chris said he could help me dial in the ECU as best as he is able, but the optimum results would be going to a dyno. I will probably start looking for a reputable dyno shop in the area

@whobeyou I have a couple of videos Chris made about setting TPS and basic tuning....too big for email. I will see about putting them in my DropBox and send you a link.

I think I have the written instructions...will email those to you.

You set the TPS without the engine running. It may be all you need to do. The good news is that you can screw around with the mapping and...as long as you have a copy of the original...you can't screw it up. When you get lost you just reload the original....or the map you last had that ran good, and start again.

Every time you make changes (mapping or Configuration) you should save them as a new file so you can back up however many steps you need if it all goes to hell.

If you are looking for a dyno guy to make changes you should confirm he knows just what he is working with. Microtec and PowerCommander-ECU Tune-etc are very different animals.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
