Hi all. Came across this write up online when looking for some guidance as per the SE Smart Tune process and figured I would share it because I found it very helpful, courtesy of Foxster from Harley Davdison Hangout:
I'm not too sure what the problem is mate as I haven't encountered that myself. All I can say is make sure the software is all up to date and follow the instructions carefully and closely step by step.
I've gone through the process many times and I still check this guide step by step to make sure I'm following it correctly and I've had nothing but success.
Firstly - Yeah it sounds like a bog standard map has been applied. The .01 suffix does lead me to believe it has been edited though, but to what extent nobody would know except for the dealer. If it's been popping then it's safe to assume the tune is not quite right, unless the exhaust leak you found and tightened up has sorted that, in which case the tune might be OK but it would still be a good idea to run a few smart tunes as there's always room for improvment. With regards to the rev and idle limit, my understanding is that you shouldn't really need to mess with that unless you have started to play with actual internals, cams etc. but I am by no means an expert. When I was using a powervision, I seem to recall it automatically adjusting rev limit which I felt was uneccessary in that case.
Secondly - Can't help you there mate as I have not really looked into those settings nor have I reached a point where compression has been something I need to worry about, at least with regards to tuning with the SE stuff. Maybe someone more knowledgeable in that area can weigh in.
Thirdly - Altitude does play a part and can throw out the AFR if it is abnormal to your normal riding conditions. The advice I have been given is to ride where and how you would normally when collecting data for the SE Smart Tune and it seems to have served me well. I'm in WA though and we're pretty fucking flat so it might play a bigger role where you are.
Fourthly - Can't remember the specific torque specs but the owners manual should have that in there, or maybe the install instructions that the aftermarket pipe came with. I use the medium loctite on my bracket nuts but there's not much point using that where the pipes meet the heads because it's not heat resistent, at least not the loctite I have. My experience has taught me that re-torquing the nuts after each ride until they stop loosening is the best way to ensure they stop coming loose. I do about 100KM a day and it took about a week of re-torquing the nuts each day until they stopped becoming loose and obviously they should get less loose each time.
I would recommend putting on whatever base map is closest to your set-up and then smart tune from there. If you have a 2-1 system and the map they've put on is 2-2 then I'd select a more appropriate map for a 2-1 system and then run a few smart tunes to get it nice and close from there.
RE: ACR - If it's on by default in the software, and that's what the manual says, then I would personally leave it as is.
There are no stupid questions mate despite what some people might tell you. We're all in the same boat pretty much, some with more experience than others, but the point of a forum is to be able to ask questions you haven't got a satisfying answer to elsewhere in the hopes someone else has encountered or experienced that same situation and can help out. The only thing that personally shits me is when a question has been asked 1000000 times and someone posts it again without searching first, but even then I'm not too bothered because not everyone knows how forums work.
For tthe find it life of me I can't find it. I've been through all the various settings and screens. Do you know where the option is? You can call me on 0477 77 00 17 if need be.
Cheers and thanks
I m also unable to find setting to turn off active exhaust
If you use the search function in this forum, enable ACR - you will get a post that has a straight forward instruction (I did just that last weekend).
Load your tuning file (calibration).
Scroll down to "tuning setup" and click on the + symbol, then drag "working" across to the main window on far right. Now you should see the ACR tab in this window, go there and click on ACR Enable.
Then do a Save or Save As, and now you need to connect to your bike to re-install the revised file
I've just done a first run and managed to get data for these cells.
When I do another run do I use the original canned map as described in step 1 and 2 or do i load the new map I have generated.
If ya doing a second smart tune run, you load the map you saved off the back of your previous run & changes and keep going from there
