Reckon they will do it? Surely it's just richer so will just eat more fuel on the way (on the very short ride) but be "safe" so to speak.
Yes that would be a great idea, in the interest of time management.
As long as after you install your exhaust, the very next time you start your bike after installation is complete, don't just ride it "around the block" go for a nice 30 minute minimum ride through all engine rpm ranges as possible and engine loads.
Unplugging the battery would not be necessary to reset the ECU because you would have only ridden the bike once with the Akra map and stock exhaust, so minimal adaptations data would be stored on your ride home, AND what is would quickly overwritten by a ride in conditions I mentioned above. The bike will continue to get better and better as you continue your break-in. Mile 1000 will seem like a completely different bike than mile 15.

Just be more patient than @Fry.

Thanks for the reply guys I'll call the dealer and get them to do that for me. Is the KTM rear stand a quality unit? Need to get a SSSA stand for the chain so figured why not get the factory one

Got a 1290 GT with a Rottweiler intake and 80mm stacks with stock exhaust. Recently purchased a Power Commander5 and while browsing the internet could not find a map close to my mods, so decided to load the 1290 GT Euro map for stock exhaust and pipe. I've been running with the stock Ktm map for 4 k now and it seems to run fine so figured the Euro map from Dynojets site downloaded to the Pvc would be close to the same. I will be getting the bike Dyno tuned shortly in the future.
Am I wrong in assuming this map will be okay in my Canadian model 1290 GT till then?

Exhaust now looking like a week or so extra. Do you reckon it will be ok to ride with akra map stock, them just pull battery when I put exhaust on to reset learnings? Or will I need to get it flashed again?

Would suck to have to leave it alone for a week and a bit

EDIT: Fuck that. I'm just riding it around now. Hopefully I can just pop the battery for 20 mins when new exhaust arrives and it will fix it, or i'll just get them to re-flash the akra map at first service (and perform the reset/wipe proceedure)

sorry if i have missed it somewhere but did a map of staggers bike with the ignition module ever get shared on here. or any details of the ignition adjustments.?. there are a couple of maps with the ignition module on here but the amount of ignition is quite different between them. i know lots of factors come in to it but the power curves for staggers bike were impressive and trying to decide whether to add the ignition module to my pcv. thanks.

2018 1290 SDR - has full Akra EVO Kit (exhaust, map, k&N, sas block off)....I'm in US/Colorado at 5k' altitude and running 91 octane fuel....

Bike runs good but I think the Akra map is too rich for my altitude and hurting the low end a bit....jsut bought PCV and Auto tune - main purpose is too ensure optimal A/F ratios. and adjustment for 0-12k altitudes...

Question: its appears neither DynoJet nor Rotty have a map for a bike with Akra EVO and no intake....anyone know of a map that makes sense to start with? Or just use the stock map loaded in PCV (non akra) and let auto tune build on that?

is there not a baseline Akra Map I could load into the PCV?

Thx

thought about it and new approach - going too use rotty akra/intake map - will be richer but that gives me safety if pcv/at has an issue and I have to run with AT off....plus built off of akra map so what ever hidden magic they have in there will still be. applicable....make sense to anyone?

I personally would build my map then turn the AT off, here is some reading on leaving the AT running under riding conditions.

ok, read the whole thread....and maybe I'm dense but I think the overall recommendations are:

1) get a custom tune built for my bike on the dyno (with a tune link enabled dyne setup)
-- my question here is we have weather (that I'll actually ride in) from 30* to 100* and altitudes from 3000-14000' - eg very wide range...a custom dyno is for a certain temp/altitude - I know the stock bike can adjust some but wouldn't auto tune adjust a wider range/be more flexible?

2) In the absence of. #1 - can use auto tune to optimize a map, but do so under load then turn off autotune and flash to base map? and adjust max trim positions to < 20% ?
--Under load = long. hill and multiple passes thru the rev range? at diff throttle positions?
--same question on weather/altitude as #1

3) Last preferred is run auto tune with the advanced parameters set as per Kev - too minimize wide swings in afr's

I think Kev altered my assumptions/expectations about A/T long ago, the effects of engine brake while building a map using A/T, etc.

yeah, I've trusted Kev's inputs since i had my 2010 990SSMT! Just trying to understand....I dont mind buying dyno time for my setup.....I was just under the impression that having auto tune would be beneficial for massive altitude changes (and temps)....
