Hi Everyone,

This thread has been created to allow the sharing of maps used by your PowerTronic v1 piggyback ECU module. If you have a developed a map & would like to share it with others, this is the place to do it. To keep this topic friendly & open, yet serious enough ('coz we are adjusting things that could lead to engine problems) I think we should follow these guidelines:

1).. Please DO NOT post maps developed by commercial sources like MNNTHBX, HardRacing etc. Those guys have spent their own time & money developing maps for their customers so it would be wrong for them to be pirated here. If you found the map available on another internet source, please credit the source.

2).. There are no warranties associated with any maps posted here. Everyone uses them at their own risk.

3).. When you upload a map to share, please ensure you have the following information in your post:

- Build year of your Duke or RC.
- Your country.
- Octane of fuel being used by you when you developed the map.
- Stock or aftermarket exhaust ? If aftermarket, which one ?
- Stock or aftermarker air filter. ? If aftermarket, which one ?
- Stock or aftermarket airbox lid ? If aftermarket, which one ?
- Have the map values been input manually or by using an autotune feature ?
- List any other modifications to your engine.
- Is this map for fuel only, or fuel & ignition ?
- Your impression of the performance you found using this map, like "Pulls strongly from low revs through midrange" or "Good for track use but not really for the street".

4).. Maps should be compressed (zipped-up) & attached to your post so they can be easily downloaded by other forum members.

Thanks :)

The ZIP file contains both Stock and High Octane maps that I obtained from RaceDynamics. The Stock map came with the ECU and was backed up by me before switching maps. The High Octane map was developed by the RD Malaysian Race Team on the track. The switch to the latter made sense to me due to my liberal love of WOT applications and use of 98 octane unleaded fuel, which has worked wonderfully for me so far. I could really feel the difference when I switched to the High Octane map in how quick my bike responded to throttle inputs.

- Australia
- 98
- Stock Exhaust
- DNA Race Air Filter
- Stock Airbox Lid
- Manually
- None
- Fuel & Ignition
- Throttle response is more instant, engine smoother still than with the stock map

Great initiative malJohann !

Have you compared the high octane map with any of the other maps previously supplied by RD ?

Great idea to initiate such a thread , especially as RD is allegedly working on a new Powertronics version with onboard map switch button . It will be great to be able to pick from many different custom build map versions .

It was the initiative of @The Mariner, I just copied and modified the text from one of his threads.

Truthfully, I never manually checked the High Octane map against the base map, but I could feel the difference. YMMV.

That would be great, but admittedly I'm looking at something else in the future so I can do closed loop tuning too.

Mal, could you post a link to their software? I'd like to look at those maps, but unlike Bazzaz they don't seem to offer it on their website.

Same issue.

The maps don't load on the software provided on their website.
I asked for the High Octane map for mine, just wanted to check it out.

Anyone got a copy of the software on the CD that is provided? I don't have a CD-ROM in any of my machines :(

Also if I try and connect the Powertronic with the supplied cable and the newest software from the website, I can't connect, comes up with an error "Error connecting to ECU"

I've emailed RaceDymanics too, see if they can assist :)

If y'all have 64 bit machines, there are some extra steps to make it work on Windows, 32 bit machines are fine though.

Yea, I'm on a 64-bit, who isn't these days? haha

I've downloaded the driver needed if thats what you mean, I can see it in my devices, just comes up with an error still :(

Unless there is something else I'm missing?

Thanks for the PM ultradoux

I'm having no trouble loading the maps on my 64bit desktop PC. But I have to launch the program first, then "open" the map.

I note that the corrections on the "regular fuel" map are tiny compared to the one that came with the Bazzaz. When I tested that a week or so ago, fuel economy dropped alarmingly, and my riding buddy who was following said he smelled fuel all the time. Fuel consumption went up to 6.6 L/100km!:eek:

And unfortunately I haven't been able to adjust the A/F ratio to make it leaner. Apparently I have to change every cell manually.

Some drivers need to be signed manually on some 64 bit machines before it'll work, for some reason it doesn't always happen automatically. I'll try look it up later and reply here, but it happened to me quite a while ago with the initial installation.

It's great to see such response for the maps.

There are currently two versions of the tuning software. If you have a PowerTRONIC 2.0 unit you can download the software/tuning guide/base maps by visiting the downloads section of our website PowerTRONIC | PowerTRONIC http://powertronic.racedynamics.com/

If you have the previous PowerTRONIC unit, you can download the necessary software from here http://techfusion.t15.org/R-Tune PB.rar http://techfusion.t15.org/R-Tune%20PB.rar.

If you have a old PowerTRONIC unit and are currently running on a 64bit system, you might face difficulties while using the software. We have a workaround available for this. Drop us a mail at [email protected] and we shall get back to you right away.

Thanks for the support !

We have a newer version of RTune available (3.0.4.7 at the time this post was published). It now supports dual fuel and ignition maps, quickshifter setup, traction sensitivity and attack strength and an intuitive throttle calibration procedure. Cells can also be copied and pasted with ease. The software can only be used with current generation hardware.

Due to the number of changes made in the software, maps would not be interchangeable between software variants. Maps for individual bikes are available on our website.

Is there a V2 map library for custom setups (not just the ones odd Racedynamics website)
