hey guys, just bought the full woolich tune setup including the autotune.

just curious if anyone has done anything with ignition timing? before anyone asks, no, i am not a newbie when it comes to tuning, engines or anything i have experience... i want to dyno tune it for the ignition timing but curious if anyone has done any work with the timing tables and gained any power? i searched quite a bit and didnt find any real answer to this question

My bike was tuned by a very reputable race mechanic and I asked about ignition timing.
The simple answer was that there are very little gains to be made. In saying that he did change them, i have no idea in what way.
The real gains came from the fuel map.

There are gains to be made with ignition timing not many dyno housing get involved, preferring to just setup fuelling. You need extra kit like either det cans or a det sensor fitted on the bike with det sensing electronics. Its said you need a light drum, dynojet drun is deemedtoo heavy, and an eddy current brake with a torque sensor strapped to it to measure live torque. Up shot is if the dyno guy messes up you end up with engine damage a lot quicker than if it leans out.
Its a while since I looked at the ignition on the GSXS1000 but I did change the maps in the earlier gears which pepped it up.

Hello

I've only just seen this - for some reason.

I am about to mess with the ignition timing on my GSXS using the Woolich Software but only in as much as I'm playing with the Unifying option.

The GSXS has 4 ignition maps, Neutral, 1-2, 3 and 4-6. The Unifying option allows you to choose one of those maps and apply them to all the others.



As far as I know, and by looking at the maps, it appears that gears 1-2 and 3 are slightly detuned. Reason being, I suppose, is that they were too aggressive as they were (is there such a thing as too aggressive? Lol). So I am going to see what that does.

I have a dyno, so I can sort of test it but it's tricky doing dyno runs in lower gears, so I don't know how that will work out.

As for changing the maps themselves, as opposed to only Unifying them, I would not get involved in that myself unless I was a racer and had a whole new level of expertise. And as the guy above has said, I would need to get a torque cell for my dyno, which is another $1,000.

So basically, I don't see the point in it at my level of riding and tuning skills.

You can see my progress if you take a look at the links in my signature below.

Greetings
