Tune ECU, it's a free download for windows, nominal charge for Android.
It allows you to alter/download fuel maps, alter throttle parameters, disable/enable sensors and clear fault codes.
The RC8 started playing up earlier this week ,all sorted, no EFI warning light, no longer blowing fuses, new fuel map installed, all sorted and almost ready to go ( I accidently threw the tiny clutch pushrod seal out with some oily newspaper )
Really pleased, cost me a fraction of repair shop bill, 33 quids for for the OBD2 lead and an 0616 adaptor lead, ten quids for the app

Nice one, Paul. I have a suspicion that Tune ECU only works on slightly earlier models (10 years old-ish) and not the latest models, which is a big shame as it sounds like the perfect app. It doesn't work on Falcos and RSVs of the same era either (they're not new enough, apparently).

I am still hankering after an RC8R, but there's not a chance it would get past the Boss. It doesn't have a pillion seat, for a start. Perhaps if I sold the single seat 888 and replaced it with the single seat RC8R?

I'm thinking myself into a world of trouble here...

Wouldn't be first time Graham would it !

A pillion seat is available for the RC8R but I do recall seeing a post on the KTM form asking
"How do you stop pillion from flying off backwards ?"

Yes, I do have form in that regard...

KTM must have been having a larf when they designed a pillion perch for an RC8R. The whole concept is clearly ridiculous...

You know you need a Super Duke

Following the recent trip round France, it would get my vote for just about anything.

Just waiting to fit the new silencer and air filter now and get the remap, got a feeling it may not be early-morning friendly...

Get thee behind me, Katie...

The whole idea of buying the Duke 690 was to get my hooligan kicks at rather lower velocities, and here you are trying to tempt me back onto a bike capable of warp speeds. And Paul is not blameless in this respect, either...

This forum really is a hotbed of bad influences.

Probably why I keep coming back...

Made me smile all day, I always wanted to be a bad influence

Guilty as charged Graham
Just been for a blast on the 8, very pleased with new fuel map,a lot smoother and tres rapido !
In fact so rapido I now need to fit a 'throttle tamer' to stop the front wheel lifting every time you hit a bump and give it an unintentional twist

PS Graham, we do not see you as being entirely innocent

I'd much rather be in the company of bad influencers - they're a lot more fun...
