Microtec Results 1000s

Ok, firstly, please accept my apologies for taking such a long time to post this (work and a recently bought ducati diavel are my excuses) I also wanted to spend enough time on the bike to be able to post some feedback that others might find useful

Secondly, I am not a bike journalist, so please forgive me if the following doesn't make sense, but this is posted to help others who are interested who are thinking of investing their cash

When I bought the bike I was at first pleased to find that it took some managing due to the inconsistent throttle (I also have a 2005 KTM Superduke, so know all about throttles that are "challanging"). However, I noticed that I wasn't taking the mv out much, certainly the early sunday norning trips out to the wilds of essex were not that much fun and generally the superduke got the nod. I did a fair amount of research and got in touch with chris and agreed that he would take the bike as a prototype.

The bike I now have is a different animal, the best compliment I can give is that I do not notice the throttle anymore, I simply ask for X and get X, it feels like a very sharp early R1. I have also noticed that the high temps I had before are also gone. (that may be down the the cat being removed?)

The installation is neat and can be reversed at any time, although to be honest the bike is now very much a keeper, where as before, it wasn't as I can't stand having bikes that don't get used.

In summary, I would say to anybody who is considering the Microtec to go right ahead and do it, you'll only regret the time you wasted not getting it done.

I hope the above helps

Thumbs up MicroTec

i bought a used MicroTec from squibby, Simon......serial #37

just bolt it on?.....
hey Massimo why is the ECU mounted on the backside of the mount?
and why in the fuck is the ECU mount heat treated??????

under 2,500 RPM my '08 910R was absolutely the WORST fueled bike i EVER rode.....
with the stock ECU
and with the race ECU too

put the MicroTec on it......and who knows what map it has in it?......

the Grand Canyon hole is GONE.....in city traffic, not bumper to bumper.....its running 183-5 degF.....about 15 deg cooler

fans come on ~187 deg instead of 199 deg

yes, the idle is too high.....but its ridable under 2,500 unlike stock

and the ECU no longer controls the starter motor.....ever notice that you just touch the starter button and it keeps cranking until it starts? what happens if it doesn't start.......does it keep cranking

i've done no tuning, nothing......my computer isn't reading discs....so i can't play yet, need to use a neighbor's computer to dump the disc to a flash drive so i can play....and this '08 is already 1000% better

i get this head pipe, mid pipe length crap sorted, weld a 02 bung in and slap a Lambda meter on it .....i'll fix the fueling

best mod you can do to an '08 Brutale is put a MicroTec on it

stock ECU sucked....giant hole off idle
race ECU sucked too, same hole and it had a hunting idle, yes i set the TPS with the VDSTS

I'm a way happier camper

I'll take that as a well done then shall i?

And just think, all of that improvement without the need for a MAP sensor Surely it can't be so...............say it ain't so ma

Seriously though the map you are running is no doubt an evolution of one of mine, depending what has been changed there is possibly a different ignition map that you could run that might smooth the initial throttle opening a little bit more.

Glad you're enjoying it

Congrats Noel!

Dammit, too long a wait for a used M180X

So Noneyet, named so because he had no MV Agusta in the garage when he joined the forum. Brutale 910 R has been sold, so now maybe he's "had one".

Thumbs up Chris's MicroTec

you did a great job Chris, my hat is off to you

hey Chris my set up disc is blank.....so i can't play or get the idle speed down (2,000rpm)

but an Alpha/N system like on the MV is primitive

look at the Seimens system on an Aprilia RSVR
an IAC motor and the ECU set idle speed, you never do anything
you never 'set' TPS, the ECU sees the closed throttle as zero
you never play with the bypass screws
the FPR references manifold pressure to keep the spray pattern the same
don't get me wrong, they don't know how to run in closed loop, so 02 sensing is deleted in MAP 2 (the performance setting)

my Alpha/N injected BMW R1150GS just averaged 40.9 MPG over 950mi running 80-85 mph going from LA to Phoenix and back
my vacuum carburettored BMW R75/5 averaged 54.7mpg between Heidelberg Germany and Copenhagen Denmark at 110-115mph

on flat ground my Mother's '04 Lexus RX-330 strains to get 24mpg @ 65mph

my '66 Chevy El Camino with a 7.5 liter motor AVERAGES 22.9 city/highway......yes, it took a looooong time to get it there and that was before Lambda meters too
on decel over ~2,500 rpm, it will pull as much as 65deg of ignition advance so i can pull all the fuel out

again Chris, the MicroTec you supplied to Squibby.....with whatever map it has in it now, is 1000% better than stock

i just can't play with it

I must admit it's transformed by bike from a bit of a sluggish pig into a entirely different bike . The throttle response is soooooo much better !! I also found the temperature to be at least 5 degrees cooler and it took longer to creep up at lights. It's definitely worth the money . Thanks chris great job
