1st time - TPS Reset?

Hi All.
1st go of trying out TuneECU on my 2012 tripple.

Apart from monitoring and looking around I saved the current map and made changes to the Thermo fan.
Changed it to cutting in at 101C from 103C and change the idle through the temp range.

This all took and did the following for the reset adaptation
<Menu> ECU--- Reset Adaption
After each download, a Adaption reset is needed.
1. Turn the ignition off and back on again.
2. Wait 10 seconds and turn the ignition off again.
3. Turn the ignition on. Wait until TuneECU has connected automatically and select Reset Adaption
from the ECU menu
.


4. Start the engine and let it idle until the TPS light in the status bar becomes green around 10 to 15 minutes

I also tried the following

As an alternative to the above process [i.e., the 12 min adaption], connect the diagnostic tool, scroll to ADJUST TUNE and select RESET ADAPTIONS. This will force a fast adaption routine to take place in around 5 seconds. For this to happen, the engine MUST be running, it must be at normal operating temperature and in closed loop control mode. Under any other conditions fast adaption will not take place and may cause default values to be loaded, which may then require a normal 12 minute adaption routine to be run."
"IMPORTANT NOTE: This function only applies to Daytona 650, Rocket 3, Sprint ST 1050, Speed Triple 1050 and Daytona 675, but not Daytona 600."


But no matter what the green indicator for TPS in TuneECU would not go green.
Tried several times, even idling for over 20 mins.

I've taken the bike for a spin and seem to have no issues.

Does the Reset adaptation apply in my scenario?

Same thing happened to me yesterday, no green tps. I have heard that it doesn't always come up green even after 20 minutes + of idling

It happens sometimes. I wouldn't worry about it, the reset is completed satisfactorily even if the light doesn't come on.

Mike at TTP reminds us of this here, item 7 on this page:

http://www.triumphtwinpower.com/tune...-functions.php

I quote:

If the TPS light doesn't turn green after twenty minutes, don't worry and turn the engine off anyway as sometimes it doesn't trigger, and in our experience the job is done anyway.

Thanks that's reassuring. I tried again following the procedure exactly (printed it out) and green TPS. Bike runs great so good to know.

Just downloaded a new map to my Scrambler today and went through the readapt routine. This was the first time the green TPS light actually came on! It only took about 12 minutes of idling time for that to happen

Hi all I'm having a similar problem as the OP,

Except my connection indicator bottom right hand corner goes red (disconnected) every time I start the bike, then the pop up screen says 'ECU not responding, check cable connection, turn ignition off and on'
I have the bike connected to a car battery and voltage does not appear to be dropping below 12.5v

I have gone trough this cycle about 12 times now, following the exact method in the OP.

Any help??!!
Cheers
Pikey

Don't know about cable, I have had no problems connecting or downloading/uploading maps.

Also as edit for above, I'm trying reset adaptation values, not TPS. But similar process re starting bike etc.

From reading the page that Forchetto linked to, I may not even need to be connected to tuneECU to do this.
Can anyone provide confirmation?

Cheers
Pikey

Apparently, there are always cases where the green TPS-light does not come.
Let's simply run the following process:
1. Ensure the transmission is in neutral.
2. Ensure the ECM has no stored faults (DTCs).
3. WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTTLE, start the engine and allow it to warm up to 90C .
4. Leave the engine to idle for a further 12 minutes. Now have fun.

BR, Tom

Thanks Tom,
Thats what I ended up running with as a solution.
I think I got he lead from your page as well, so thanks again.
Took it for a spin afterwards and seemed to pull smoothly through rev range, enormous improvement on stock map anyway.
Thanks heaps
Pikey
