Just got confirmation from the TuneECU gang that if I can save the bike's map to the laptop and run diagnostics (as I have done with my 2014 Rocket III) that the ECU is not a tamper proof one...looks like I'll be making some changes soon
Just wondering if there is any new information regarding using Tuneecu for diagnostics and testing only on the new Street Triples?
My fiancee just bought a 2013 Street Triple and we are planning to do our own servicing on it and I am wondering whether I can check codes and run diagnostics without triggering the anti-tamper and having issues with warranty.
I just started a new thread on this topic but Forchetto suggested I post here so that it gets the correct visibility. I was at the dealers yesterday to pick up some accessories and asked them to run a scan as the idle seemed a bit off.
When they ran the autoscan, the first check that popped up was "ECU Locked Status: OK"
There are two possible interpretations of that message:
1. The ECU is indeed locked (tamper protected) and has not been tampered with OR
2. The ECU itself is not locked, so by default the status is OK.
I know the tamper proof ECU / locked ECU has been discussed previously so thought I'd just throw this out there as a word of caution for 2015 twin owners planning to re-map.
Well if it's speed based than something like the speedo healer could be used to falsify the speedometer input. That would mean you'd need another means for measuring speed unless you made the error something easy to calculate. Like -10 or -15mph.
Probably not the answer you seek but in some japanese home market bikes the restrictor was a simple switch inside the speedo watch the needle go round hit 115/120 instant brick wall . I took my speedo apart ( for a different reason ) and simply snipped off the tab that rotated with the speedo needle inside the clock . I would imagine that things have moved on since then probably electrickery involved , are all thunderbirds restricted or just certain markets . As an experiment could the speedo feed be disabled while still allowing the bike to run . If so use another form of speedo ( gps ) and see if when the speedo is not working you get more speed .
