Rottweiller fitting myself?

Post by roblund6 » Mon Oct 30, 2017 10:25 am

I've ben searching, but cannot find anything specific.
Question. Can I replace the standard airbox for a Rottweiller, and remove the secondary butterflies (I'm assuming the secondary butterflies are the ones at the top of the stacks) myself safely without having a remap?
Would the 15 minute idle run auto tune to an acceptable level until taking to a professional to tune precisely?
Currently my bike has a full akra exhaust system, including manifolds/down pipes all Titanium, and SAS has been removed, both of these mods were done by the main dealer, (which cost a bloody fortune!!)
I'm an engineer of 30 years working on CNC machines, but I'm no mechanic.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Yours hopefully, Robin, Worcester, England.

Hi Robin,

Easy enough to do yourself. I did it in no time and have also done my mates and I have no mechanic experience (but am a copier tech).

With regards to mapping, you can do it yourself with a TUNEecu cable and a free map from the forum. It’s easy and there are plenty of instructions available.

It is easy to do it by yourself if you have a step by step guide. I was using this site http://www.ladowntownnews.com/app/SMR/index_4.htm but now seems removed.
Regarding the map, dealer has probably installed acrapovic map which is richer than Normal at should be ok to use your bike. Standard map will be very lean. You can also use tuneecu and upload a map from here.

Thanks for the replies folks, sorry for my late reply, I've been ill.
Sod it, I'll go for it, just hope Tune ECU is easy to use, as the last thing I want is a blown engine!!
I don't know if the main dealer remapped it or not, didn't think to ask.

It’s really easy to use, plenty of help on the internet but I didn’t need it myself. Pretty self explanatory to do the basic map upload download.
