Motorcycle ECU Flashing

Motorcycle ECU Flashing

What is it?

ECU flashing is the process of adjusting the settings on a motorcycle engine control unit (ECU) to suit the rider's preferences. There are several different approaches to flashing. One approach is to flash the ECU with basic adjustments, such as increasing the RPM limiter, then using a piggyback controller, like a Power Commander, to make finer changes to fuel and spark tables to improve performance. The second approach is to make all changes in the flash which negates the need for a piggyback controller. At TL Tech we can do either, however, we default to a hybrid approach, i.e. we make subtle changes to limiters, fuel, and spark tables. If more precise adjustments are needed, we can setup remote tuning using an interface on the customer's ECU. If you are interested in remote tuning, please contact us.

What settings can be adjusted?

Late model ECUs have more features than older ECUs. The settings that are available for adjustment depends on the ECU. Here is a list of settings that can be changed by flashing a typical late model ECU:

  • RPM and speed limiters
  • Traction control settings
  • Fuel and spark tables for each power mode
  • Exhaust valve and air intake valve opening/closing
  • Idle RPM, fan temp switch
  • Quickshifter/auto-blipper control
  • Launch control, pit speed limiter
  • And much more!

How do I get my ECU flashed?

  1. TL Tech's ECU flashing service is currently only available to US residents
  2. If you live in the US, check the Supported ECU List below to make sure we support your ECU, if that checks out, then purchase the ECU Flashing Service
  3. After purchase, you will need to complete an ECU flashing form
  4. Once we receive the form, we will provide you with the address to mail us your ECU
  5. We evaluate the ECU and if it's suitable for update (not damaged and is readable) then we update it and mail it back to you (overnight delivery available)
  6. If the module is damaged and unable to be updated, then we mail it back to you
  7. You will receive an invoice via email when the service has been completed. Pay the invoice and the ECU will be shipped back to you.

Terms

  • There is a $250 minimum charge for updating that does not include return shipping
  • After the module has been updated you will be invoiced for return shipping
  • If the module cannot be updated, the $250 is refunded to you minus the return shipping
  • We have additional services in the ECU Flashing Form which may incur additional charges which will be agreed upon prior to performing the programming
  • Custom programming and tuning can also be added for an additional charge, just tell us what you would like to do and we will give you an estimate
