Oyabun Yup, 19 bikes have a completely new ecu, what uses can communication instead of the k-line used on previous models.
Guess it'll take some time.
I prefer ecu flash over the PCV, but it will do fine on the 19 models for the time being.
A forum member used Rapidbike Evo to tune his modified cbr500. Might worth a try.

catfish Thanks for reference to MCU I... :-)

He does not support the 2019s yet, but he did say "yet". So I'm hopeful he will get to it eventually.

I see you have been tuning CB500s with a PCV. I may resort to this if its the only custom mapping option available.

Thanks again,

Catfish ...

Oyabun Hello Catfish,
Welcome to the club. Ryan went from open source to subscription model as far as I know, you can find him as MCU Innovations.

catfish Hey folks, what's up with the ecu reflash work? No "PuffTheMagicEngineering" at Facebook to query.

Can I obtain the software, interface, etc & do it myself?

My 2019 CB500X has too-much ignition advance in the 1500-2200rpm range with 10-20% throttle. Very noticeable in 1st & 2nd gears. Try holding a steady 1800rpm in 1st gear. Good luck. Too responsive! And I also tested it in 3rd gear pulling a moderately-steep hill at 2200rpm and can easily make the motor ping with a little throttle. Too-advanced ignition down there! :-(

I may do exhaust & intake later, but right now I want to smooth the bottom end of this motor.

Any help or links to the right place would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Catfish ...

PS: I have experience dyno-tuning + remapping older Aprilia Caponord ECUs with TuneBoy & TuneECU. And used PCV to tune an FZ07 and then FtECU to burn the oem FZ07 ecu. Since I can't post any links yet, Google "catfish caponord ecu" & "catfish fz07 ecu" to see what I have done previously. :-)

Hit me up on facebook, much easier to chat there.

Oyabun Ryan's (Puffthemagic) software works.
My 2016 cb500x runs on the firmware of the 16 500f what is slightly different in duel mapping.
More to come after the bin files had been cracked.

Well, I can imagine that quite a few of the owners would not want to disable hiss - living in an urban environment prone to motorcycle theft.

Nope, reflash should not affect hiss or key coding. It would change specific parameters (e.g. rev limit, ignition and fueling maps) in the program.

The standard cable needs some extra attention to connect to the oem DLC connector, but it is not a big deal.
