Yamaha Power Tuner: different models

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does anyone here know if there is any meaningful difference between older Yamaha Power Tuner devices and the current GYTR-branded model (part #: 33D-H59C0-V1-00)?  Specifically, would I missing out on something by using an older used unit on a 2016 YZ250F instead of the current model?

 

Thanks!

Is there no alternative to the power tuner?
I was hoping that there would be a Chinese "version" or a PC interface on the market sometime

Anyone know if these things are married to one ECU? Or can you buy a used one that somebody already used on their own bike?

And risk cooking your ECU? I'd stick with an OEM approved product for something like this. Edited by Goatse

You can use the same one for multiple bikes without issue.

Awesome, thanks. I'll be picking up a used one tomorrow. It's the older unit from when only the 450F was EFI, but some research shows it should work on my FX.

So OP I should have a for sure answer for your original question when I get home from work tomorrow.

Thanks Goatse.  Did you get a chance to try it out?

Sorry man. The guy flaked out and stopped responding.

That sucks.  The used one I wanted to get from a dealer was already sold weeks ago and they didn't bother to remove the listing.

Check Ebay and local classifieds as well.

new or used doesn't matter, the tuner cannot change the base map

(only make adjustments to the original base map) no matter what bike

it is or has been used on.

Well I ended up getting it. The guy just went out of town for the weekend.

It's odd though. It's showing the same run time as my hour meter. But my hour meter wasn't installed until after my first ride, that was probably 2 hours.

Hour meters tend to read a little on the high side due to internal timers...

I base my maint on the hour meter to stay on the safer side. Hard to say which is more accurate.

Have one question regarding the tuner and maps. If you change map (ignition and fuel), is that like you've changed the whole ecu (e.g. yz250f '15 with '16)? Or are there some things in the ecu that can't be changed with the tuner?

The only thing the tuner adjusts is timing and fuel. Even after changing things, putting it back to all 0's is the factory map.
