I just got mine installed and have all the stock numbers in there. Took it out for one ride and the quickshifter really bangs into gear and even getting the front end come up a little, not a wheelie, just a surge forward kind of thing.
Just to save me making changes, riding, making more changes riding, kind of randomly, should I be going up or down in the number of MS and what is a good unit to change, 5 at a time, or more?
If it's jerking too much you'll want to decrease the kill times. I usually move in 5ms increments, but i it's doing it pretty bad then you could start with a decrease of 10ms.
Might sound dumb, but how do you flash new maps? Does the ZF-i have to be plugged into the harness or can you just plug the usb into itand say do it from a desk top computer? I flash a lot if vehicle ECUs at work just never messed with bikes.
Also the instructions that came with it said to mount it in the tail, but the online ones say front fairing. I know it will be front fairing, and what would you recommend for use other than the scotchlok? My kit only came with one and i have a problem using those.
It's not really like "flashing", more like a live interface. All you do to modify anything in the control unit is plug the USB cable into the control unit and youcomputer, then open up the Z-Fi mapper software. That allows you to edit the fuel map, load a new map in, and adjust other parameters.
For the P models you'll definitely want to mount it in the front. We designed it to go on the right side, but I removed my charcoal canister and place the control unit on the left where that used to be. Had to extend the power lead, but no big deal. I understand not wanting to use a scotch lok, but an alternate method will have to be up to your discretion. Personally I'm pretty good at soldering stuff in, and if done correctly that is the best way to go.
