leo vince map

Post by Richard Griffiths » Wed Jul 08, 2015 9:21 pm

Hi just got a 2009 990 smt and finding the fueling very rough despite it having been remapped by bsd in the UK. Have now fitted some leo vince slip ons and would like suggestions for an appropriate map via tune ecu. It's got a standard airbox and I think bsd disabled all the emission controls. Love the bike but the power delivery is really snatchy and I'm having to use the clutch lots to smooth things out. Surely that's not right?!
Cheers Griff

Snatchy, hair trigger throttle is an almost universal complaint with the SMT. Not sure your map is entirely at fault. Get the Tune ECU software, download the 'smoother' map, and see how you feel. Might also want to remove the secondary butterflies. Good luck.

Hi Griff, I have recently bought a 2009 SMT which was snatchy at low throttle openings.
The bike is very good now, after several modifications off the forums. These are the mods as I did them and they all gave positive results. The bike was found to have a standard fuel map. It is a good idea to download KEVTX's Mod Book.
1. Block off SAS pipework to stop air feed to exhaust. Off rear of air box. Needs turning off in Tuneecu if unplugged.
2. Disable E.P.C. ignition retard. Slightly better acceleration and lower tick over
3. Fit Wings Exhaust with large DB Killer. (Runs much cooler) Leo Vince was good alternative.
4. Fit ITG Filter and Georges mounting plate. (Much smoother and felt better)
5. Remove Secondary Throttle Plates. Makes engine braking much less aggressive and smoother.
I have had friend put in alternative fuel map now, but bike was running ok before. Make sure throttle free play is as small as possible without causing rpm rise at full lock.
Regards Rob

Thanks for the replies. I have fitted a throttle tamer which has made throttle control easier but I still find low speed riding such as roundabouts tricky. I think turning off the second flies will be my first alteration and see how that helps.
I saw a nice ktm smr at poole quay Tuesday that had a different airbox and blanking plates etc.showed the engine off nicely and look great!
I would like a new air box but the expense is an issue at present.
Very pleased with my smt overall..especially the comfortable position and feel good factor it gives me....
Cheers

Just ordered itg 30 80 filter and georges backplate with sas blanking plates and thinking of taking second flies out but leaving spindles in place. Is there a tune ecu map that would be matched to this anyone could recommend. .leo vince cans with noise reducer fitted)?!

Map #18 or map #20 if you place an rc8 stack at the front cylinder

Map 18 is the one then..just got to try working out how to get it loaded onto my mate's laptop who's doing the remap with me. Once georges baseplate for the itg filter has come.
Cheers

Have you got the itg filter, base plate and map 18 fitted yet, if so did you notice any big difference. Just in the process of doing it myself. Cheers.

Hi mick. I haven't fitted the itg filter and georges base plate yet. I see you are selling yours...did you fit it and have problems or are you just not bothering with the installation?
Cheers Rich.
