Is it true that the European H2SX's have

Post by Prof J » Tue Sep 10, 2019 5:10 am


Is it true that the European H2SX's, stock, have more aggressive OEM mapping?

If so, what are the differences?

there is lots of different mapping in the ecu, so it could mean many things but the only thing ive seen that is more aggressive for them is the ability to set the cruise control at a higher speed.

This is pretty rare as they do usually get a slightly hotter version of a bike then we do. Either through less restrictions built into the ecu or some type of intake restrictor

I vote for a higher cruise control, with a new U.S. Autobahn.

I really hope someone is able to crack the cruise speed in the ECU. Heck, I can't even get 85 with the speedo error, the best I can get is 83 MPH GPS. Out here in the west with 80 MPH speed limits in places, I'd like to be able to at least get 90 MPH.

I have asked woolich to add it many times as I would really like to be able to set it higher also

Woolich Racing posted in the thread below that if they could get a bike in Australia they can look into that.

Any owners in Australia that want to be a test mule?

From what I read about the European ECU, the mapping differences provided better power, et al.

There must be a map we could look at from some European H2SX model/user.

Any volunteers please p.m. me.

You have Woolich software so you can do that yourself. Pull up one of the European base maps and compare the .bin file for a US map. You will see the mapping differences. My understanding is that the Euro maps are slightly different to meet different emissions regs but not enough to provide any noticeable difference in power or delivery. That's only speculation based on bits of information floating around when the bike was released. I haven't seen any side-by-side comparisons.

I'll try to answer your next question before you ask. No, you cannot load a Euro map to your ECU. Euro bikes are fitted with an immobilizer and the ECU will get all sulky if it doesn't find the right immobilizer code. Oh, you weren't going to ask that? Well, it was a good excuse to answer those who may be curious. :D

I believe you can manually copy and paste all the cell values from each of the Euro tables into the same table for the appropriate USA base map. I never tried that - I decided to do something more worthwhile like mow the lawn.

That’s a little bit odd.
UK / EU bikes have to meet different specs to AU, US and NZ bikes.

This may not have anything to do with it, but remember the Hayabusa can no longer be sold as a new bike in the UK / EU as it fails Euro-4 specs, it actually failed it 2 and half years ago but the extension was up until the end of 2018.

Maybe that is / isn’t related to any difference in mapping ?
