QUESTION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE INSTALLED CRUISE WITHOUT NUDGE BUTTONS-

is there any interference with the heated grip control? They both use the starter button and I'm trying to figure out if there might be a problem. If so I need to order the nudge button ASAP...

Dave.
Turning CC on requires a long press of the button. this wont affect heated grips other than bringing the heater menu up.

Be aware though, that if your CC is aleady on, then operating the grips will set and engage CC. The manual suggests that if you want to adjust heated grip while CC is on, perhaps pull and hold the clutch. then adjust grips, release clutch and re-engage CC if required. It will become 2nd nature very quickly.

If you have the nudge button tune... remember to disconnect your O2 sensors !

Oh- that makes sense- clutch in disables the cruise mode!

The buttons look nice, but that side of the bar is already crowded with GPS and radar...

Tailwind and cruise control performance

I've had the Tuneboy CC working since last Christmas. Yesterday was my first opportunity to ride it in a strong tailwind (early spring in New Mexico USA)...quite an influence.

The CC "behaves" better (i.e. no oscillation) in headwinds; a headwind seems to provide a little damping which stabilizes the system. A bit of a disturbance for it to "work" against, if you will.

But in a tailwind, it's pretty bad. Speed up, slow down, speed up, slow down...classic unstable behavior. Almost annoying enough that I disabled it (but I didn't).

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE the cruise control. It's the best money I ever spent on that bike. But its behavior is not quite perfect. I feel the gains could be tuned a little better.

as far as I can tell, they are exactly the same as the ones on the CD.
I'll soon be uploading this now that spring is almost sprung here in Denmark.

It seems the product is much better than its instruction set....

Actually, it's not really that bad. My CD was cracked in the package so I didn't have the link for the maps or FlashMitsubishi program and couldn't find on the Tuneboy site on my own.

That said, if you follow the directions in this doc (http://www.tuneboy.com.au/TuneBoy_MTS1200_Diavel.pdf) you should have no problem at least flashing (I didn't do any live tuning).

I used the USB connection so did load the drivers. Honestly, the longest time took just installing the nudge buttons - at that was where to run the wire. I saw no good way of running under the tank without having to lift/remove the tank so I did it between the tank and he left fairing. Can't tell at all when everything is back on the bike, not sure what others have done.

If you have any questions - feel free to ask since I just did the install. I can send more pics of under the seat as well since this was also a bit confusing - there are a LOT of connectors there!

You do not have to mount it, after the re-flashing is done you disconnect it and keep it in a safe place for future use.

If you are using it for data logging, just leave it under the passenger seat.

Thanks! I was contemplating keeping it hooked up just b/c of the logger feature, but since it's compatible with Android yet, I probably will just flash the ECU and remove WiFi.

Motodisiac,
way back in Dec you got your Tuneboy and said you were going to be using the tuning function, and review it...Curious about your experiences with it. Have you had a chance to use the tuning function yet, and care to share your experiences?

I keep chasing postal trucks looking for my package from Australia, maybe your review can distract me for awhile.
