Okay...that just doesn't make sense at all.
A dyno pull is a dyno pull (is a dyno pull). "Hiding something within the software" either has a real-world effect on the actual power and torque being put down to the belt (referenced to the RPM of the engine and subject to environmentals, etc.), or it doesn't. If the gains are hidden such that they don't show up on a normal dyno pull, then there are no gains. Stat.
I just don't get that set of statements from them at all.
It would be pretty easy to check data from the accelerometer to see if the bike is moving. A first line of code that uses that condition is not difficult to imagine. Also worth pointing out that Hilltop is remaping my BMW F800GS ECU. Regarding that software they said, “Your GS will show the changes since it's different software that goes on that.” There is no accelerometer in that ECU.All this sounds like a placebo effect LOL
I'm going to go ahead with the second dyno pull because I'm a nerd like that. Going to try a couple of things. At a minimum, it will be a good test of the velocity stacks and air filter.That all makes sense - I can (and did per my last post above) read between the lines once I did some thinking on it.
That said, I personally wouldn't bother at all with a second dyno (unless my buddy was providing the run free of charge).
I am *very interested in whether or not the bike is running cooler after the Hilltop magic....
The only input that can be used to detect a dyno is the difference between front ABS sensor and rear. There are no inertia sensors, and you can't "detect a computer being connected" because most dyno's use at-most a primary or secondary ignition detection clip, and don't link to the OBD2 at all....
We did a pull with the bike as is, and also one with the rear wheel sensor disconnected. Zero difference, so that is not the data being used to determine if the bike is stationary or actually moving. I suspect they are using something from the IMU.
Hmmm. It doesn’t set well with me that the fact the tune and/or A/F ratio is hidden on a dyno. Have you tried running a wide brand while riding it around? I know it would be a little bit of a PITA to do, but that would tell the story right there.
