Used the Dynatek
Calibration software to re-calibrate the TPS
NO GOOD! Had to replace it....!
Even though it meters at WOT and closed throttle, there was almost nothing in between.,
Put on the new one, and the Dynatek
system self calibrates the TPS
, without turning a screw on the TPS
! It's all in the software.
Just a few throttle turns, a few mouse clicks, and the TPS
is calibrated, and the software reads out the relative resistance.
........but that's not the cool
You then set your mapping 'turn-over points' by simply opening the throttle to anywhere from 0% to 100% for your 'closed' map
, 'partial' map
and 'full open' maps.
I was able to try out a 3% / 40% map
in 25 seconds ...rode out the driveway and went 'hmmm, that's different....".
I tried several different turnover points and settled on 10% and 35% throttle as the transition points from 'closed' map
to 'partial throttle map
' to 'wide open' map
These maps are all sub-maps of one of the four memories in the system.\
I chose to use memory #3, which has a pre-loaded 'agressive' map
You can go into the software and actually create any map
you want, any turnover point and any relative advance or retard curve
for any throttle postion.
I thought I'd keep it simple to start with, and just use one of the provided maps, and just play with turnover points for now.
THERE IS A NOTICEABLE CHANGE IN THROTTLE RESPONSE
AND THROTTLE THROW with each change of the turnover points.\
So, if you have problems with whisky throttle, you keep the turnover point early in the the throttle, and jump right to the next map
, which is always slightly less advance that the one with less throttle opening.
If you are geared high, like I am, and you want more throttle response from closed to 30% throttle, you put the turn over point later in the throttle opening, keeping it in the 'closed' map
It's pretty cool!
The LEXX exhaust
arrived already. Only two days!
So, is it any good? Is a cheap POS? Did it do anything?
Yes, it is good.
No it is NOT a POS, or cheaply made.
Yes, it did something. Something good.
This pipe is QUIET.
I mean like really quiet.
It comes with a removable insert that covers the entire length of the muffler, and is not just a 'tip'.
The bike really likes this pipe. Much better snap at low rpms, and only a tiny bit of 'choking' at high rpms.
It also slows the YZ 'hit' down a bit. Not less power, it just takes longer to get to the power.
So it's not quite as fast, but the YZ hit issue before made doing wheelies nearly impossible; if you get near that hit, you could not keep it from going over.
So now the power is more linear.
I kept the YZ header on, just for grins, and so far so good.
I'm starting to like this bike, now that I'm not freaking out over how it runs all the time.
