Wanting to get some input on my first FP3 auto tune session before applying it to my map.

Looks like you went on a cruise down the freeway a bit. It looks fine, but once you apply, you will not have any visual reference to show you where you need to concentrate... meaning the table will be wiped clean and applied values ( your reference ) will be gone. You didn't lose them, rather used them and started over... so to speak. I never apply.. I always continue my sessions and monitor the table to let me know where I need to focus using TPS% and RPM from the table. You can NEVER get 100% of the table, but the more green blocks you can populate, the better. My last session was about 600 miles over a few weeks of various riding scenarios. Read my thread on the autotune process.

I was hoping you would reply on this. I have read your thread and thats what inspired me to auto tune. That was a 60 mile ride with some full throttle pulls to 5500 rpm's through 3rd gear.

So I guess Im good to do a few more rides before I apply to my map?

I would.... don't be in a hurry to APPLY your tune... use the visual reference to your benefit and let it help you target key areas that need attention.

Lookin great though.... nice start for sure.

IF you look at the green... you are solid from 1875- 2875 rpms ( give or take) with only 5-20% TPS.... this the easiest portion of the table to learn, since this is the cruise area.

2nd tune with a 40 min ride.. Doing a tune is like breaking in a new motorcycle.....

Been running through the gears til I hit the rev limiter but only make it til 3rd and already doing 80mph..

I have to admit the 103's run pretty good.. My last bike was a '06 Night Train w/the 95 big bore kit but even with the 200lb weight difference I think the RG would out run it.

Running thru the gears sometimes is not enuf... you have to maintain tps and rpm at times... that's why cruise range populates so quickly...

Try running 2nd gear at 3500 to 4000 rpms for a bit... view your table before the run
.. then after. It's sad to say but no one knows how many times or how long you have to be in a certain range for it to populate... it's take a bit of patience

If you have the FP3 and have not done a Auto Tune session you are missing out..

I done 3 sessions of highway, a little city traffic and some WOT pulls til I hit rev limiter and after finishing the tune man what a difference.

I thought the bike ran great with the base V&H map provided for my set up but honestly the Auto Tune made a difference. I wasnt sure it would so I finished the tune probably shorter than I should have.

Question for Spazz... Can I do more Auto Tunes and apply it to my current tuned map Ive just completed? I know Ive wiped out my Auto Tune screen for comparison but I have a saved pic of last tune and I can use that to see where I need to improve... I had 52 Cells learned when I finished tune..
