TUFF FP3 Questions for Guru's

- If the autotune function measures RPM/TPS, could you theoretically learn the cells in one gear? Or even neutral?
Do you have to learn them in ALL gears?

- Why is it recommended to do (3) riding sessions instead of (1) long ride?
The goal is to learn as many cells as possible right?

- Does automat modify AFR tables only?

Thank You.....

1) no because it is learning under different load conditions and speeds

2) I don't know why they say three , I did mine several different times completely re tuning from the baseline , one I did five or six rides , and the last that I have left alone , I did two rides , one was just a normal ride and the other was a leg of a road trip , I have one cell not filled and no issues ..

3) AFAIK yes

AFAIK you need to get orange cells turned to green by riding under different conditions such as low gear high revs and high gear not too low revs.

Bear in mind that you will never fill all the cells.

This.
I had a buddy that ran auto tune for 3 weeks on accident. Still only filled about 2/3rds.

I have a full Vance & Hines exhaust setup

I also have the FP-3 Auto Tuner and it’s a great little unit

After installing it, I did a 220 mile ride and went thru one full tank of gas

First I installed their map with my setup and I could tell a difference right out of the gate

Bike just ran better

Better throttle response as well

On the decel at freeway speed, I had very little popping

I got great cell readings after riding thru the canyons in Malibu CA, up PCH to route 150 and into Ojai Valley.

Then hit 126 to get back home

I got great cell readings because of all the different riding areas I mentioned along with highways riding

Once I pulled into my garage and looked over the cell readings, I flashed that information onto the bike.

Rode to work the next morning, a 51 mile ride and the information from the AutoTune was fantastic

So good that I hadn’t felt the need to run another autotune.

Then I put in new cams, and before the service guy came back over to me I went ahead and revised the information and re-installed the new map onto my bike

The service guy was tripping out on the unit

Then I did another auto tune and did the same thing again.

The ease of tuning your own bike and getting great results

And all from your cell phone and the FP-3 tuner

Vance and Hines also has great tech support online and or by calling their number.

Good luck and I hope I gave you some sort of perspective.

Hi all,
Don't forget to disconnect the FP3 when you have flashed the new map.

You don't have to do it physically - just take it out of autotune.

Sorry if I am stating the obvious.
