    Pm sent. Wouldn't need the laptop assuming the software is available for download somewhere. I have an old 32bit XP machine I keep around for this kinda stuff.

    I would try a Win7 32bit OS. They were awfully stable and pretty much everything worked with it. Sorry, can't tell you for sure. I think the one I used was on a netbook with XP Netbook OS and it was fine. Perhaps if you have a XP copy you could try that first. I know it's easy to virtualize - I have a toshiba phone server that we have to run the XP in virtual mode to interface with the phone unit.

    Paul, you coming to the rally? Get the unit from Darkside and we can set it up there. It's super easy. I already have the program loaded on the netbook. I think the battery is shot, but we can plug it into a RV or something. Spa and all his motorhome buddies will be there so it's no problem. We'll just get an extension cord and plug it in.

    Mine is running like a clock with dynobob's settings. I've been keeping up with the KTM lite-bikes. LOL

    Well, CJBrown, that's a great idea! I'll talk to Darkside about it.

    Hey Paul,
    I have the setup boxed up and ready to go. We could either connect it up and do it together or you can take it and tinker with it at your leisure. I could probably meet you at carnegie this Saturday if you're available.

    Actually, if you're going to some kind of meet. Why don't you take it and you can see if anyone else needs tuning.

    Sorry no. I don't know of any gathering, only heard it mentioned a few posts up.
    Yes, I have the old laptop. Complete setup for ibeat. Might need ac power though. I'm not sure if the laptop battery still holds a charge.

    Yup, that's the one. It's an annual affair with a few Cafe Husky people going. I think Browneyes been going to it the longest.

    I was planning on grabbing the iBeat dongle (and maybe laptop) from Darkside and having Browneyes do the update at the rally. If it runs as he says.....I might have a Power Cammander V with 630 map up for sale after.

    Paul - make sure to remind me to bring my netbook thing for the tune program. Sure as hell I'll forget.

    It's a big event - 250 riders, lots of 'noobs' LOL. My first year was 2011 right before I bought my TE. I rode my road bike up there and camped out. It had snowed on the passes that year - people had a hard time getting there. Neat place to visit and explore - huge area. You can't see it all in the 3 days.

    Just the cable. They are easily mailed from user to user. I borrowed one from a very kind member. The program you download. It's all very simple. But yeah, the cable is what makes it work - special obd thing.

    No idea. I don't have the throttle zeroed out either......not sure if we need to do that first.
