If you’re someone who’s handy with tools, a look at the installation guide for your bike would be all the help you’d need. It might even be fun.
However, if you’d rather have your trusty mechanic do it, it shouldn’t take them more than 30 mins of their time. (Installation time would vary from bike to bike – a naked bike would be faster to install on.)
The PowerTRONIC connects to the Injector, Ignition coil, Crank Position Sensor, Throttle Position Sensor, GND – Ground | negative terminal of the battery.
The box contains the PowerTRONIC ECU, tuning cable, PowerTRONIC wiring harness (bike specific), stock coupler & decals. You would not have to purchase the tuning cables or software separately.
The ground wire should be connected according to the specific instructions for your particular bike. An improper ground could potentially cause connectivity issues.
For the list of bikes we support visit powertronicecu.com. We can develop a unit for your fuel injected bike if we have access to it at our headquarters in Bangalore.
The PowerTRONIC will allows overall ignition control in all operating points, and fuel control in the open-loop region of the original vehicle operating characteristics. The original lambda remains, and will help run the bike at optimal AFRs in the cruising region. You would see a much better throttle response and dynamics engine characteristics, along with safer air-fuel ratios at non-cruising conditions.
Specific to the Enfields, we override the lambda signal going to the original ECU ( ECU knows the lambda exists but not working as expected, and does not light up MIL) which makes the original ECU use a fixed map in all areas that previously used closed-loop correction (ex. post warm-up cruising region), which lets the PowerTRONIC take over fuel corrections in all operating conditions.
If your ECU has a CKP wire make sure the wire is securely connected as the signal is required for the rev extend the feature to work. When the ECU is connected to your bike as well as the PC, in the RTune software under ‘Crank Signal Type’ you should see a number displayed. If a value is not shown you would have to recheck the CKP connection.
For heavily modified bikes you might have to check the map in order to avoid running too rich which would prevent you from having an extended rev.
We do not support rev extend on quad cylinder ECUs.
The flowchart at the following link should help you with any common issues faced. www.racedynamics.com/downloads/rev_extend_verB.pdf
We recommend that the PowerTRONIC should be unplugged before taking the bike for service (using the stock coupler would not work) so that the service engineer can inspect and service a stock bike. The PowerTRONIC leaves no trace of its use once it has been unplugged.
If you are using the preloaded maps or maps from our website, Map 1 would be the Race map with mid-range improvements while Map 2 would be the Race+ map with mid and top-end performance.
For PowerTRONIC ECUs with a TPS input you can use the Auto Calibrate feature to calibrate the TPS settings. TPS is an alternative method for load estimation and gives better performance at part throttle. To set up the Auto Calibrate you can use the following video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXnSl7gzYtw
Throttle calibration lets the powerTRONIC understand the throttle signal type, this is required for better response, smoother power delivery and seamless RPM increase transition points. Throttle calibration gives much better control over power delivery with respect to throttle position, especially when cornering.
