    Engine tune

    I thought i'd share my experience that i had with BHPUK for the people who live in europe and want to tune their bike.

    Basically it's tuning the bike with a handheld device just like BT.
    You receive the device, read your ecu and with your pc you then send the file to them. After they did their magic on the file, they send it back to you and write that modded file to your bike using the same device.

    I had to wait a little more than a week because they had some issues at first with being able to modify the file. That's because BMW used some other encryption or some sort with my newer version XR.

    So finally this bike finally runs as it should run straight from the factory.

    The throttle response is now crisp and smooth, and it keeps pulling with more noticeable power throughout the rev range.

    Riding just above 2000 rpm's in all gears is now so much smoother, just like it was with my previous bike single R.

    Another improvement is now i'm able to aggressively pull away from a standstill with ease.

    Before the remap, it sometimes had the tendency to stall the engine if your weren't careful with the throttle when taking of, even when you added more throttle there was no real direct response. It felt like i was lugging the engine. But that is fortunately fixed now.

    I occasionally had issues shifting with the QS from 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th at just above 4000 rpm. That is now completely gone. Even when i try to provoke it.

    And lastly, the cold start is also fixed proper good. It starts and idles at a "normal" rpm.
    My neighbours thank me that my bike isn't so loud anymore because of the high idling early in the morning.

    I'd say it is definitly worth it.

    Looks to be the exact same sort of thing as Bren tuning, even the handheld looks the same. Sounds like a good result though

    It's not BMW's fault...they have to comply with the silly emissions laws, (As do all the other motorcycle manufacturers), they run very lean in the "test zone" which is why the bike is often a pig to ride at low rpms....Gen-1's are similar until the tune is sorted.

    Good to see you are happy though.

    I am very well aware that BMW motorrad, and not only them, but all manufacturers whether it be cars or motorcycles have to comply with certain emission rules. Sadly at the expense of performance

    It is just a shame that the engine is not being used to its true full potential to give you the best driving experience.

    Of course manufacturers do their absolute best to achieve such, but with green handcuffs...

    that's because it's the MyGenius made by Dimsport in Italy, They also sell the tools to develop the new calibration. Looks like they have a new version coming, the NewGenius, scroll down on the page:

    Salem is correct. I had have my Bren Tuning handheld reset by Dimsport when I wanted to re-use it from a Gen1 to Gen2.

    Dimsport also does the Rapid Bike series of tuners IIRC.
