differences in 2018 ECU
So here is what I am trying to figure out...
I had a 2016 USA. As we all know, there are various theories regarding jerky throttle and the 2015-2017 ecu settings. The USA 2018s got a new ECU(2017 in UK i think).
Has anyone here done a comparison of the OEM files yet?
I know the knew ECUs specifically were supposed to address the lower RPM fueling but not the jerkiness and have a smoother power delivery overall. I actually find this to be a very good description as I found the 2018 to be every bit as jerky (when I first got it) The low RPM fueling however, feels almost identical to my 2016 reflashed ECU.
I am also trying to specifically find out what the differences are in the OEM levels of engine braking (between the 16 and 18)....Still a touch strong on the 2018 but subjectively smoother. The "subjectively" is the problem; I can't tell 100%. (Especially since I dont have the old bike anymore!!)
I loved how my reflashed ECU had significantly less engine breaking even though the fueling felt similar. I actually think that what most people attribute to the fuel cut is more of an engine breaking issue. The ability to adjust engine breaking on the fly is even becoming a standard option more and more....Yamaha H2s anr Rs, honda Cb1000r and cbr1000 can do.
