BrenTuning 1200/R9T/BMSK ECU Reflash Kit​

Signed up today with Motorcycle.com as a new Vendor here at NineTowners. As some of you may know us from other bikes, many years ago we've worked out all the performance mapping locations and restriction removals for the S1000RR BMSK ECU, which follows the same ECU Tuning strategy of the other BMW Motorrad Bikes including the R9T.

When the R9T was announced we put in our order for development and the rest is history. Below are the details and results we've found from the 1200 Boxer motor mapping, on a stock bike. Look forward to becoming an active part of this forum and sharing our engine R&D.





R9T/R1200 Tune details:

-Remap part/idle/tip-in/deceleration + full throttle lambda fueling targets. (The R9T in most cases runs a touch too lean stock).
-Remap part and full throttle timing for premium pump and race fuels (91+93+100+105+116).
-Remap desired load tables to supply a full power at high loads.
-Remap throttle torque tables to supply a full 100% open throttle operation at higher loads.
-Cat temp threshold fuel override for bikes with full exhaust (avoids failsafe fueling rich override).
-Adjust the rev limiter to proper limits for stock motor for large increase in top end power (or built motors can be set higher, adjustable).
-Adjust decal fueling / load.
-Set upper octane ignition limit to be able to adjust for higher race 91+93+100 fueling on the fly (unleaded oxygenated fuels).
-Torque limiters modified and adjusted for performance at all engine loads
-Up to +18HP gains found on a 100% stock R9T at 8000rpms, more with catalyst deleted exhaust system.

About the BrenTuning BMSK ECU Tuning process:

-Uses factory 02 sensors, no longer need to force bike into open loop for tuning, allows for better engine braking, fuel target optimization, and part throttle / idle driveability.
-Load based ECU has alot of fine tuning adjustment versus piggyback tuner when setup correctly. Fuel piggybacks and ignition modules will not defeat the cat temp override or per gear fueling and perform poorly off the dyno in real world conditions.
-Corrects the Checksum/Immobilizer that causes most tuners to brick ECUs.
-Undetectable methods of loading the file.
-Does not require Power Commander or Bazazz units - they can be removed.
Unlock the ignition and throttle limiters that plague these bikes with piggyback modules, especially at higher power levels.
-The ECU is diagnostically invisible by the dealer.
-Next day service, overnight if available / requested.
-ECU Tuning comes in 2 different variants: Mail in ECU to BrenTuning, and Handheld Flash at home unit (coming very soon). Pricing will be announced once our final vendorship goes through.

Dyno graph of 100% Stock R9T (OEM Akrapovic) tested same day with 93 octane.





Gains are over the whole curve, with lots of extra power on tap in the high RPMs at a safer fuel mixture. +18whp found at 8000rpms, once the throttle and ignition limitation is modified making a wider more powerful band.

Welcome to the Forum!

Very interesting, can you give any insight to what your tune will do to MPG?
When cruising I'm usually around 4500 RPM's, low throttle position. How much of a change in the AFR in that range with your tune?

So will this be available as a reflash kit as the name suggests? and if so where do I sign?!

Most customers report about a 1-2mpg increase.

As soon as our vendor status is confirmed we will announce pricing.

But yes, the handheld will allow you to flash your bike in the comfort of your own home. It also holds your stock map in case you need to go in for dealer work, you can easily reflash the bike back to stock and go undetected.

Our other option is a more cost friendly route for the rider who isn't planning on running different fuels/adding more modifications. The ECU gets removed and shipped to us and we flash it in house.

At low throttle position the bike will still find itself in the part throttle map, we increase fuel here about 5%, which smoothes out the driveability with rolling in / rolling out throttle. On full throttle - the bike gains power and the power curve becomes much more stable and repeatable on the dyno with a touch of fuel added back in. The additional ignition mapping and getting the bike up to speed quicker with less throttle twist, accounts for the increase in mileage.

hi Bren, welcome to the joys of R9T ... :D

as complete newbie to flashing (ECU), I'd like to know what would be the exact requirements for hardware 'in the comfort of my home' ? Laptop?

Also, your Flash, can I repeat it if necessary - if I buy a second R9T for the missus?

cheers

Hello,

The flash will be setup per VIN# and custom tuned to each bikes needs and riding style, for those owning both bikes we could work out a package for 2 in one purchase as they need to be tuned seperately.

Flashing at home, will be easy to do from a Droid device, or windows based tablet/computer/laptop. Iphone support will be in the near future. Instructions will be posted soon!

I'd be interested to send you guys ECU for a tune, if price is right of course. Or perhaps an exchange program?

How much?

Pricing will be released within the upcoming weeks. We want to get a full batch of handhelds in stock and make sure everything is 100% before taking orders.

No exchange program needed. Our turn around time is really quick, we can set it up for same day if needed with over night shipping at an extra cost.

Hello everyone,

This includes tune-loading software, appropriate BMW cables and a cloud connection to us - your tuner! In this software we are able to share multiple tuned files along with your original (91 - race fuel - touring map - your choice). It will come in Windows or Droid format, and in the near future Iphone!

R9T BrenTuning ECU mail in flash (ECU removed and sent to our facility, returned same day) is $549 this summer with UPS ground included.

Thank you,

Pardon my ignorance but does that mean:
1. if I wan't to but a 'flash unit' simply supply my VIN and tell you that I like to ride from commuting to fast public roads with an occasional track day, you will 'write' a program for me?
2. if I have an iPhone I will be able to flash my 9T from the iPhone?
3. all I need is to install is that little green thingy?

My mechanical/electrical/computer skill are limited to filling her up, flicking a switch and powering up.

Won't my service tech guy see that green thingy and say "hang on this ain't OEM - void warranty?

I'm prepared to pay the price to get an increase over 12% approaching 18% (seems extraordinary to me) as long as I don't run ANY risks on warranty and a dill like me can 'install' it.

Sounds like the 9T will screammmmmm !!!!

Oh and can I also get a cat free header or is that pushing it? I just hear that getting rid of the CAT helps but then bike runs 'lean' and sometimes you get performance loss?

1) When the flash unit is purchased, what you will get is a cable and a set of instructions on how to operate the programs. First step in the tuning process is to read out the ecu, by plugging the cable into your bikes diagnostic port and windows/android device (apple soon) and opening the software and following the instructions. From there you will email us the files you downloaded from the bike and we will then create your maps off of that.

2) That's the plan! Once we get the apple supported devices in and tested we will announce the release.

3) The cable just gets plugged in during the reading/flashing process. Once that process is done the cable can be removed and stored elsewhere. One of the biggest selling point is the fact that you can reload the factory maps at any time in case of warranty work.

Oh and can I also get a cat free header or is that pushing it? I just hear that getting rid of the CAT helps but then bike runs 'lean' and sometimes you get performance loss?

We are working on the header maps, we like to test in house before sending maps out to consumers.
