    Still waiting on Kurt to get his back, nearly a month at our Husky Dealer. Sure hope that isn't what others are waiting. I won't take mine there, I will drive the 120 miles to a shop I trust more. I'll post up as soon as I can.

    Yesterday 5/24 I got an email from the dealer I took my TR650 to, I dropped it off on 5/12 so 8 or 9 working days. Not bad in my opinion. A 306 mile journey one way for me. I don't think I can get back down there til next week. Anyhow I will see if they erased the spanner wrench on the dash and ask about a printout showing the KTM diagnostics procedure. It's pretty much bone stock except for the air filter, fat bars, supersprox sprocket, and new DID chain. I will report back and let everyone know how it goes.

    Dropped my bike off Friday at noon, got the call today it's ready, 6 days or 4 working days. Now just gotta get back there to pick it up.

    I got mine back from the lawn mower shop known as Palmer Mtr Sports in Denver ,N.C. yesterday, it was not the experience I had hopped for.....
    When I got there I was given a copy of the w.o. and shown to my bike, it was still disassembled, seat off and for what reason I cannot fathom a spark plug cap was removed. As I approached the business the owner walked by me and left the shop , must have been lunch.
    The young man who was I guess was the shop gopher was helping me load my bike, and told me he had done some of the work on my bike...Something I would not have expected to happen...but in its state on my arrival I can see why it was like it was.....I have to accept some of the blame f or ,y bikes running state as I dc/d the smog controls and thus caused the codes they had to clear....As I have said we live and we learn, and I have learned as well, don't take your motorcycle to a lawn mower shop for repairs....I did thank them for what I hope they did, but now I must tear into my bike to reconnect the smog components and search for an air leak....I would say if you are in N.C. there is a shop in Hendersonville and if you are near enough to Charlotte there is a shop in Rock Hill too....Now to the "Old Guys Garage" to repair my bike...

    I picked mine up today. It was the first that my dealer has done the recall with. They have 1 other in process. Took 2 weeks, 10 business days.

    They did not reset my service wrench indicator.

    I talked a while with them to see what information I could get about the changes that were made. They have no information. The procedure paperwork only describes the procedure and doesn't describe what the changes were at all. They didn't have much desire to invest time into it, so they didn't seem to really dig into the capabilities of their computer. That said, they did say it really didn't seem like they could get any useful information from the bike. The computer shows that an ECU exists and they can clear and see DTC codes, but that's all he thinks it can do.

    When I started the bike, it idled very high (2k+) for a short time. It has never done that before. Seemed like a quick warm up procedure and it did settle back down around the new 1600rpm idle. That's all that is obviously different.

    I drove a few miles home on the highway, so I don't have much time with it. It very subtly seems like the whole map is more "fluid"/smooth. Lower rpms seem less "snatchy", and upper rpms seem better to me. But, again, this is very subtle and only a couple handful of miles so far.

    Picked mine up today, first thing I noticed is it started much sooner and was able to continue to run without the aid of a twist of the throttle. Prior it took a good 3 -4 seconds of cranking before it would fire up and most of the time would stall if I didn't rev it some during the first few seconds.

    It does seem to idle faster at start up 2K then settle back to 1.6k.

    Taking off from a stop much better, prior I felt like I had to drag the clutch and keep the RPMs up, now I can just let the clutch go and it will just chug away and respond as expected when giving it throttle.

    Didn't notice a difference in power almost think its better but not riding it for a week and only a few miles hard to tell.

    I dropped mine off on Saturday may 13th at Donnell's in Independence, Mo. They said they would get the ecu off the bike on Tuesday and ship it off. I got a phone call on the next Tuesday the 23rd to come pick it up. So took about a week. I have been on 3 separate rides about 30 miles a piece since I got it back. My bike is night and day different. Before the update I had to let it warm up before taking off on a ride or it would stall at the end of my driveway pulling onto the road every time. It would do it quite a bit when warm also. I kinda got used to it because I expected it but it was annoying. I can now start it up and take off without letting it warm up and it runs great, hasn't stalled yet. It didn't seem to lose any power and no dead spots for me. So far I am happy with the results but time will tell. Bike is stock other than pod mod and pool filter sock in stock location.

    nwrider,

    did you disconnect AF-XIED before taking it in to do the recall? are you going to re-connect it?

    Yes, I removed the AF-XIED before taking it to the dealer. I'm still evaluating some of the subtle running differences I perceive. I'm getting a bit of hesitation right off of idle and it goes flat on acceleration when opening the throttle in the low - mid range above about 50 - 75%.

    I also have a '14 Terra that I'm retrieving from Idaho this coming week and will take it to the dealer in Salem, OR to have it's ECU updated. It also has an AF-XIED that I will remove and then compare the two bikes. I removed the the charcoal cannisters, and purge valves from both and did the pod mod and Pulstar plugs to them as well.

    Dropped mine off at Edlemans @ 6pm, near Troy, NY got a call 5/27 it was ready. Now I've only had it for 2 months and only rode it for 150mi. and I know stalling issue, idle and it use to take a bit of cranking for it to start. But, when I heard them start it a bring it around to my trailer I could already hear the difference. When it was cold the idle fluctuated up and down a few hundred rpms, this was smooth. I asked him if he had warmed it up before I got there and he hadn't. Rode it 180mi today and not even a hint of it wanting to stall, very smooth, pulled eell through the gears. I didn't want to pound it too hard as it only has 560 miles on it. I was the 2nd one they did, he had 2 more just in and 1 on the way. He had never seen them before, the techs thought they were cool! I didn't realize there were so many in the area. Max BMW is local so they may have sold a few.They were concerned with the turn around time and potential delays but said MM in Michigan was very prompt.

    Ride Report after Recall:

    1600 mile ride over 4 1/2 days with a combination of highway, forest service road, and occasional stop-n-go in weekend tourist traffic. 400 feet elevation to about 6000 feet. 45 degrees to 95 degrees.

    It didn't die once and it never coughed like it was going to die! And I'm sure it would have under the old map. And it probably would have coughed a couple of more times about to die.

    That said, I do have the occasional hiccup while doing highway speed under constant 2/3 throttle that seems to still be there, but I don't think it's related to the stalling issue...it's almost like a spark plug misfire and I'm probably due to replace that.

    As for how it feels...I can't tell low end a difference...or I've gotten used to it. I'm not going to put my spoofer back on. And on the top end it still scoots along just fine. I did get it up to 97 mph on a level surface with full camping bags....fastest I'd ever had it was 101 without side bags when I first got it.

    MPG seems pretty close to the same...typically 48-52 mpg except the tank or two we were blazing along super straight roads trying to get places. For comparison my friend on the F800GS would report fueling 3.4 gallons to my 3.2 when we were riding mostly 60 mph stuff and he'd report 3.3 gallons to my 3.3 when we were doing lots of 70 mph average stuff. Fuel efficiency seems to drop off a bit more than the twin...which makes some sense.

    All things considered I like the new mapping! Glad I took it in. I recommend it if your country has the recall option.

    Thanks for posting the TB mag00. Looks to be pretty straightforward so hopefully anybody should be able to do this. But then again people never cease to amaze me.

    I believe it is the dealer instructions. They come in color for the dealer, this is just a BW. Pictures are much better on the original.

    If your husky mechanic can read, they should be able to do the recall without incident. My local Tucson dealer did not instill confidence so I drove the 250 mile round trip to Phoenix. They (local shop) still have Kurts Terra after a month and blaming the mail. (clearly it went ups).
