Fueling after pipe mod 2017 S1000R S
« on: March 17, 2018, 08:36:01 AM »
Hi all,

Im new to this forum so firstly hello!

I bought a new 2017 S1000R and had BMW fit a full Akra system, K&N filter and fuelling module. There is still no Power Commander available for this model year so I had to go with the Rapid Bike system which is OK. Bike still runs a bit rich. Does anyone know of an alternative fuelling module?
Here it is on the Dyno

It's interesting that you say it still runs a bit rich, as these bikes run exceptionally lean stock. That leads me to believe that your RB map is too rich and the fueling needs to be adjusted for it. As you had it on the dyno, could they not adjust the map for you?

I do not know about you guys in the UK, but here in the US we have really good customer service from the RB importer/retailer. I would try getting hold of the place you bought it and seek advice there.

Hi, the BMW ECU (2017) cannot be adjusted according to the tuner. He said the Power Commander unit was the best and most flexible unit but they havent launched one for the 2017 model yet. The Rapid Bike unit I have on it is a self teach system so maybe it needs more miles. It runs great except at the low end due to the full system, air filter without a proper adjustment to the ECU.
Thanks for the tip, I will contact the guys you mentioned and see what can be done. I think BMW will give access codes for a very high charge!!

Go Safe

Having had both PCV and RB modules, I believe that he RB module approach is better than the PCV(and, this may not matter, but the RB feels better built). Just like the PCV, the RB module needs a base map to work from, and it sounds like your just needs a little tweaking(the same would apply to a PCV as well. If you add the MyTuningBike module(equivalent to the Dynojet Autotune), you van set target AFR and the RB will build a 'better' map based on your targets.

I am using the RapidBike Race module. Sorry, I know nothing about the Easy unit, but on initial investigation it seems to be a simplistic approach. Personally I would go for the Evo (I got hold of a used Race module at a good price).
