RE: Introduce yourself...


Hi everybody,

My name is Bud and I have a tuning addiction.

I have been employed as a motorcycle tech for 25 years and currently work for a small race shop in Poway Ca.
I have been building and tuning bikes all my life from my H2 hill climber to the supercharged Z50 I built when I was 15.

First of I would to thank every one for all the hard work, and a very big thanks to Petrik and Ridge racer!!!

I have built the hardware and reflashed the ECU and think the software is just awesome.

I have been looking for something like this for a long time, thanks again.

As to sharing my maps I don't have a problem with it but!!!



My Hayabusa ECU is NOT on a Busa; its on a ZZR1200 that I converted to EFI.

I have over 11000 miles on my ZZR with this setup and I have been tuning it with the Yosh box in tandem with a PC3 USB.

I was finally able to set my rev limiter back to 11500, I can't wait to start tuning my fuel and spark maps.



I hope I will be allowed to stay on this forum and we can work something out on the map sharing.


Thanks. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know.
Bud

Sounds excellent. Enabling ECU hacking can and will open up quite a bit of opportunities for retrofitting FI to other bikes (or even 4 cylinder cars i suppose...)

Sounds like this will certainly help you smooth out your power delivery!

Greetings,

Name is Vern and I'm located in Washington State, USA...  I've been riding something with two wheels and a motor since the mid 1960's.  Originally trained as a diesel fuel injection and turbocharger repair tech back in the late '70's, I've been writing software for about the last 26 years... Some experience with embedded systems, robotics, but nothing with ECU's until the purchase of my current MC (a Victory V92C).  All prior bikes were carburated, not FI or electronically controlled. 

Would like to be able to simply communicate with the ECU in my Vic, if for no other reason than to interrogate it...

I am just an "old" motorcycle guy. I have an 07 Busa that I raced at Bonneville this year. I am trying to be able to do all my tuning thru my ecu. I am somewhat technology challenged, but I am a fast learner. Petrik pointed me this way

Wow.......it seems like almost everybody on here has electronics experience except me!hmm

Oh well, anyway, I noticed this site from the suzukihayabusa board and decided to join. I initially wanted to only extend the limiter on my Busa ECU but now I'm considering more! Greg at suzukihayabusa is building the hardware for me to do this and when I get the unit I'll explore the software made by Petrik and see if I want to tackle fuel tables and whatnot.biggrin

In addition to the Busa ECU project I'd like to see if I can alter my 2005 SV650 ECU. The SV has a significantly different ECU(Mitsubishi.....I think) but I've got a spare one and plan on researching this site to see if I can extend the limiter and remove the timing retard.confused

On a personal note I live in Florida with a wonderful wife and two children. I really can't donate any electronics advice because my knowledge is limited but if anyone has EMS or firefighting questions/issues please don't hessitate to ask.

Jason I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't have experience.

Morning, I'm Chris and from New Zealand.

I stumbled onto this great site when orginally looking for a PC3 for a Hayabusa engine I'm currently turboing in a kitcar back home. My concern with the PC3 has always been the ignition retard and the need to reprogram whenever I change the boost (I know I could get around this with the ing box and boost module, but at that cost I may as well brought an aftermarket computer.).
 
I'm more than happy to share any maps I create along the way but I'm sure I'll be buying the programmer complete for flashing.

great work guys it amazes me what can be done and something i would have even thought about.

Hello. My name is Matt and I'm a Pisces. Oh oops! Not that kind of place.biggrin

Anyhow, I migrated over here from SH.org by way of Smithabusa and PetriK. I have just acquired an '05 ECU and rotor for my '99 Turbo Busa and am looking to make it a better ride. I currently have to run a PCII on mine to control the cruising rpm stumble I have. I am using a Microtech for the secondaries.

I'm looking forward to unlocking some of the secrets held in the stock ecu. Look forward to a lot of questions from me!

Thanks for all the info in advance. thumbsup.gif

hi everyone my name is michael. i joined this site because it is all so interesting and nothing else stimulates me more. thanks ridgeracer. i am a very curious person and like to keep up with all the cool stuff and this is the coolest. even though i wouldnt be able to tell you anything about reprogramming and diagnostics, i like to read your post and learn about the 12r(and other peoples interest and bikes).
i ride a 2001 zx12r and i think its awesome to know that all that you all do is so amazing! i hope by me peaking in and asking questions doesnt annoy anyone. although, you probably would never know im there as i like to see and not speak(professional lurker). i live in pensacola florida, im 36 years old and spent most of my life farting around having fun. i've been working a civil service job for 8 years and have 1 child. cheers to everyone and best of luck to you with all your projects.

Hi folks,

my name is Dirk, living in Germany in a small village approx 40 Km away from Frankfurt/Main.
The bike virus caught me when I was 8 years old... 40 years have been gone since. So I grew up with mechanic like breaker contacts which was easy to maintain.
Based on my youth and empty pockets there was no way to contact any dealer in case of probs with the "bikes" (50 cc). But, changing this disadvantage to an advantage, my mechanical skills grew and today my garage is never empty. I don't mind if someone has probs with a small 125 cc scooter or with his Hayabusa, everybody can ask for help and will get it in case I know or find out what it's about.

For me a bike is art.

Beside that hobby I earn my money as a project manager in the IT world.

O'right, that's my intro...

Have fun

Ciao
Dirk

whats up all, I'm new to the entire concepts of ECU flashing, betteryet flashing in itself. I'm an Army Veteran with 9yrs of service at the age of 26, I have a 2007 Hayabusa that i only use for drag racing, technology is constantly evolving so i better catch up to stay not to far behind, I'm very interested in the flashing concepts because it eliminates a lot of costly add on electronics on the market today, while reducing the clutter and nest of wires asssociated with the devices. Not to mention I'm an Information Technology Specialist for the army now, but thats like dancing on wet toilet tissue for a hard surface compared to the knowledge many of you have, but i'm opened minded and will learn something and hopefully contribute in the process

Hi,
My name is Matt. I'm the web designer and office manager for EFI Alchemy. We do performance tuning on late model GM cars & trucks. I love to ride and help build and tune performance cars. I currently have a 2008 Hayabusa and before that I had a 2006 GSXR 600 and a 2007 Hayabusa. I had no idea anyone had started hacking bike ecu's and then I stumbled across all this site and Id have to say my jaw dropped. I have a dislike for piggyback systems and had always wanted to tune my bike like we tune our cars. A new Dynojet chassis dyno is on the way to the new shop and I plan on strapping the busa down on it asap!

Hello all,

My name is Joe, I am a mechanical engineer by trade who prefers to spend his free time riding and drag racing whenever possible.  I set out to build a stretched 2000 model turbo busa a few years back and ended up buying an aftermarket controller because at that time I was unaware I could potentially reprogram the stock ECU.

Due to an untimely accident shortly thereafter I was delayed in the build of my bike until recently.  The intention of running the stock gauge cluster is where I am running into a problem, all the gauges but the temp gauge work, I guess I need to know how to emulate the com link to avoid opening up the dash.  I hope someone on this site may be able to help me in this endeavor.

Now that I know about this site I am interested in learning a little more about reprogramming my stock 2002 busa ECU which is the next project in line: a streetable turbocharged project.

Some words of Introduction...
Len Marshall from South Africa
Motorcycle enthusiast/eejit , got tired of paying other people to have fun tuning my bikes. When I realised that most experts are not , I accuired dyno , payed school fees , now tune own bikes.
Bikes - '99 Turbo Busa Straightliner , 07 ZX14 + Muzzy Nos , 08 Busa + Nos , 06 CBR1000-Track Bike , Bombardier DS650 + Wet Nos.
I have been following this forum for a while and I am truly amazed.
In my world nothing comes for free and everything is a struggle to try and stay ahead of the next guy.
At first I could not fathom the motivation to give away your knowledge for free , but I am coming around !
I herewith express my deepest gratitude to all involved with the increadible amount of effort and dedication that goes into getting this kind of project off the ground and keeping it alive.
Have started a 200mph club in an effort to keep racing and motivate others to join in , not for the sake of capital gain.(I said I was coming around)

Hi There,
Im based in Sweden and have been scanning this site for an while...and im overvhelmed by the efforts and progress in making these hacks user friendly.
My history:
After some 15years on closed track racing i sold of my roadracing bikes last autumn to join the healthy option of 4 wheels.
So im building an Super Seven car powered by an K8 Haybausa engine and hope to solve most issues re tuning by this eminent forum...

Cheers
Michael

Brad from the United States, been looking around on here for a few days, and all I can say is 'wow'.  I'm 27 and am a Systems Admin for an air compression company that deals with everything from a small shop comressor to building custom, fabricated semi-trailer mounted untis for the oil/gas industry.

I've been riding for 7 years, and have had a few motorcycles, but now I think I'm settled on my '08 Busa (bought new a few months ago).  Decided on upgrading the dual Akrapovic slip-ons to the full system and knew I'd need a PC or similar.  I've always been a do-it-myself kind of guy and was ecstatic when I came across this forum.  I'm looking forward to what Petrik, RidgeRacer, and the other brilliant people here have in store.

Hi, ive been annoying people here for a while but thought I better introduce myself.

Im a farmboy from Australia who now sells paint for a living, never set foot on a racetrack or dragstrip but just cant seem to help myself as I always feel the need to make things go that bit faster.
No mechanical/electrical training but always pulling somthing apart, use to get in trouble cause my Dad would find his tools in my bedroom as a kidbiggrin
Hope I can make a contribution in some way.

Hello
Been riding for 10yrs, and a tech for almost as long but left dealer life to be more selective on what I work on. Currently in Instrumentation and Controls(electronics) at a power plant with equipment to allow me to dig deeper into my obsession and a room full of techs smarter than I.
Now have the 09 r1 and hate its restrictions and tripped across the site and looking to learn. I want to correct what I consider simple ecu issues. The appreciation for those who have dug deep into the reverse engineeringof these ecus has not been wasted on me. By the time I figure out what and how to fix there will likely be an easy plug and play remedy.

hey! names Jim. i have been wrenching on bikes for a good bit, have a "slight" electronics background, and hold an electrical engineering degree.. probably installed and programmed the same stuff RR designs! haha

sadly, (for me) everyone here is exponentially more intelligent than I, so i'm not sure just how much useful knowledge i can contribute. i have a feeling most of my posts will be questions as i learn the Black Art that is ECU parameter modification.


look forward to learing al lthis stuff as i plan on adding some boost to my 2000 ZX7-R and would love to step up to EFI. planned on a hacked 6-R ECU, 10R throttle bodies, a bit of motor magic...

the other option is a megasquirt system.

thanks for your time!

Hello all.

I have a 2001 ZX-12R that I picked up a few months ago. I want to get rolling with tuning the bike through the ecu. The only way to go. I have experience tuning a car through ecu flash and it always seemes better than any piggy back device.  Though with that, it all went through the OBD port. Soldering on the ECU makes me a liitle nervous but it'll be worth it.

Any help in getting everything setup by those who have done it would be appreciated it.

I'd like to be able to tune from my laptop anyone pay the extra $50 for the usb BDM interface?

Hello Everybody!
My name is Jeroen and I'm from the netherlands. For my job I used to write firmware and develop simple hardware boards but since a couple of years i'ts full-time software development (C#).
I was surprised to read FDT is used around here. If anybody needs information about the flash protocol used for a hitachi/renesas controller feel free to ask. Maybe I have some info here.

My daily driver is a GS850 Turbo (converted to injection with KMS) en recently I bought a GSX1400 :). Long term plan is to convert it to a turbo bike but I really would like to use the original ECU.

Is there anybody who did something to a GSX1400 (2002)? The ECU has a mitsubishi icon on it and these numbers printed: F8T95372 MGT048 1Y07
So far I had no luck in finding a spare (damaged) ECU but if I have to cut this one open I will.

Bye,
Jeroen

Hi there,

My name is Dave, I have no electronic knowledge what so ever, so may be going to cause myself a whole lot of bother. But what the hell. I'm a mechanical engineer by trade, but am now in the building trade. I have a few bikes, namely a ZX12, which I have modified to a degree, and have wanted to get 'into' learning about modifying the ECU, using the info from a data logger, to optimise its performance on the road. Hopefully with a bit of help on this site I will achieve this.

Thanx Dave Potter. smile

Hi, time to introduce myself, I am Micah Shoemaker of AF1 Racing located in the Texas Hill Country.  I am a dyno tuner and motorcycle R&D guy with an extensive background in 2t, 4t and forced induction tuning.  I own and use a Factory Pro EC997 with 4 gas EGA for most of my work.

I specialize in Italian bikes, and Aprilia/Piaggio specifically.  I have been in the motorcycle industry for almost 2 decades now and have been doing dyno tuning for the past decade.  I do not have a strong background in electronics and will probably ask what to you guys are many "noob" questions, please bear with me and I will learn as quick as I can.  Feel free to ask me any tuning related questions, if I can help I will be happy to, if I do not know the answer I will not BS anyone.

I already see a LOT of familiar names, nice to see you guys!  Now I know where you hang out when not on ApriliaForum!

Specifically I found this forum by searching for "hacks/hacking Power Commander" with an eye on using one on my little 70cc direct injection 2t scooter engine and another 2t efi project I have been considering.

Feels like home already, wonderful resource here!

Hello,

my name is Jeff Tudor and I have been in the motorcycle performance industry for 32 years. I started back when double springs on points was a performance ignition mod. Wow! That brings back some memories.

Been involved in many forms of racing over the years, from alcohol mini-sprints
to Supercross engines.

I build NA, Nitrous and Turbo high performance engines and Dyno tune EFI and Carbureted fuel systems. Street, Drag and Landspeed is our passion. Last year we built two of the four motorcycles that went over 200Mph at El Mirage Dry Lake. One nitrous busa and one turbo busa both in the 1350 class. The turbo bike just missed the fastest speed of the year by less than 1/2 mile an hour. Top honors went to John Noonan.

Purchased the busa interface from smitabusa last year and have been playing with that with some success and have been setting up the nitrous bike with the new wizard of nos revo system. Should have some testing complete in the next couple of weeks. Also building a new turbo system for the other busa.

I love technology and am here to learn and help if I can.

Have a great day!

Jeff

Hey from Ontario Canada ........... been into bikes since the 80's have several custom chops,  crusers, dirt &  street bikes and offroad toys being in the construc. Business
   
Was researching tre's/ecu flash for a R1 one of my latest additions (nightmare) someone  mentioned ridgeracer & I started digging around,  saw  (ridgeracer with banned  underneath it at the gsxr forum)  been there  lol!!!!   
knew I was in the right place

I'm in search of the caramel secret for a /08 R1 was hoping you have something built already or any suggestions  Thanks

P.S  I had a feeling you were a computer tech guy judging from all the stuff I read  out there by you so far.   I too  believe in sharing of information

Hi, i'm 23 yrs old guy situated in Singapore(one of a small country in asia)
Just finish serving 2yrs of my national service(army and it compulsory for every guy in singapore) and now waiting to study degree in computer science (programming :) ) i dont have any job experience or achievement. i got a decent programming skills and the only thing i hacked b4 is computer gaming. The feeling of success when u hacked in is definitely great. As i started getting in to the motorcycle world since i just gotten my bike license, and looking at the technology that impact the motorcycle industries, it seem that i can put my knowledge to a good use. So after some research, it eventually lead me here.
So I hoping to learn some skills from those experience forummer and achieve something this great.
Please do guide me along. If there is any thing i can help, feel free to email me.

Boon Leng regards

Hi,

I'm a Pom who's been living in Australia for a couple of years now. Got my first bike (BSA 250) in 1977, and had bikes ever since. Ran a Suzuki dealership in Scotland from 89 - 96.

I've an Engineering degree and was an electronics hobbyist years ago, been a Linux enthusiast for 10 years, mostly Gentoo now, but had a CNC machine running EMC/Ubuntu, until hard disk failure (the machine's in the UK).

Have written a fair bit in Perl - it's simple and easy, and does everything I need, and used it to post-process data and send it to the (non EMC) CNC machines via their RS232 interface.

I'm looking to learn about and modify the ECU on my GSXR1000 K2 track bike; I've a K7 SV1000 as well,  but leaving that alone for now...
