2017 650 xt ECU tune
Earlier posts described my 2017xt bike build, however the damaged bike was a low power LAMS bike, for learner riders in Australia, limited to approx 47hp, so the ECU map is different to a full power version.
Thought of a few ways to correct this, I could buy a full power ecu but $$ and was unsure if the LAMS ecu was linked to the security system, power commander, maybe.
Then found a company, "Woolich racing" in Australia had just released bin file keys for the Vstrom 650's, similar to the SV650.
Purchased the do it yourself kit, registered, loaded software, logged in, read the ecu map, saved the stock map just in case. Woolich has the stock restricted and unresticted maps, downloaded the unrestricted map, write to the ecu, key off, key on, done, that easy.
The bike is now full power and nice, the 2017 motor is a lot more eager to 10k rpm than the 2012.
So if you have a learner bike in Australia you can certainly load a full power map, or change the tune yourself as many times as you want, or get it dyno tuned, which I may do.
