Dazco please pardon my ignorance what is a tuneecu, what sort of cable do you need, where do you plug it (into the bike) and what software do you need to run on the laptop ?
tuneecu is free software. You buy a $20 cable from amazon that has usb on one end and odbII on the other. It plugs into the left side of the bike directly behind the side panel and you can load maps that others have created. This is a necessary step if your bike is modded, but of no value of its not (as far as I can tell).
Onto the 12 minute tune.. I think thats just: start the bike, and wait 12 minutes at idle, right Daz?
