Dobeck tuner

Put a wiseco/gen3 dobek on my scoot over last week. Anybody got any thoughts on it, tuning settings? Just curious. I rode a bit this weekend, but truthfully haven't seen much difference with the factory settings.
Thanks.

Hope your little one is great Rod! Anyway, Spike breather/intake, debaffled stock exhaust. PAIR delete w/resistor and 5th gear resistor mod. This is the gen 3, has the push buttons. I'm guessing the numbers provided correspond to green, yellow, red green/blue?
Thanks dude.

She's taking a nap in my arms right now. Should be similar as the older unit. Might have to check the Dobeck site. That's where I got the numbers I posted. Best of luck.

your not going to see much difference with stock exhaust.

You can inhale as much extra oxygen as you want....but you can still only exhale the same amount... so nothing really changes.

The Dobeck numbers are generally for bike with both BAKs and aftermarket exhaust. With a BAK, you will see improvement if set properly. They are set so lean at the factory that adding gas, will even help an all stock bike. The debaffle will improve even more.

Based on my Dobeck (gen 2)/Voyager experience (Gen 3 can do a negative fuel add, I believe, so you need to find out from Dobeck what the zero add settings are):


The Dobeck "recommended settings" are for bikes with BAKs and 3rd party exhausts. Since not all BAKs and exhausts are the same, these are just starting points, anyway, so you would have to tune it regardless.

Mount the Dobeck, at least temporarily, where you can see it while riding. Start with the Green and Green/Blue settings (everything else at whatever Dobeck says emulates stock conditions, i.e. zero add - you don't want to go negative). Give it a delay of at least 3 or 4 (higher if you want better gas mileage) and add Green from zero add, one step at a time, riding it with each step. Run thru a couple of gears accelerating slowly and quickly, watching for the lights to change on the Dobeck. See how it feels, make a note of the setting, increase one and try again until it runs thru the sweet zone into a crappy, too much gas conditions to figure out the best setting. Go to yellow and do the same, then red. Setting one zone at a time takes some time, but it will get you to the best running settings.

Installed:
RAM mount for TomTom Rider 400 (with anti theft module)
6000k LED Headlight & Spots; Kisan Headlight Modulator (works with LEDs),
__Brake Light Modulator, LED License Plate Holder
Longer Kickstand
Dobeck EJK 3.0
Lucky Mirror Extenders
Misc. RAM Mounts for Cup Holder, SPOT, Phone, etc.
Chuckster BAK, Trailer Hitch and Cooler Rack
Wiring for Trailer
Ray's Throttle Mod
Things to do:
Drilling Baffle Plates (Maybe)
Paint HF Tag Along Trailer to Match Bike

Thank you very much gentlemen. I've talked to the guys at dobeck a couple of times now, good people. I do realize the stock exhaust is an issue. I bought the tuner a: in anticipation of future add ons, and b: sold a horse and had some disposable income. My wife and I are raising our 5 grandkids and that, combined with our 16 year oldest and son, who by the way, started riding this past month, means extra cash doesn't happen that often. That by the way would give me a coronary if I had time, idiot rides a klr 650 like a crotch rocket, but that another issue to work one. Thanks again for the input guys. Sabre-t that's what I'd figured out so far. Really not that difficult but after multiple searches for info I came up with nothing and thought maybe if I was asking somebody else was wondering as well. Oh by the way, I think, maybe possibly the 5th gear resistor mod might maybe be playing a part here. Sabre mentioned taking fuel away, which I don't know if you can do either(you can control how much is added tho). I had to drop green down a notch to cure an issue with the engine stumbling when fuel was initially supplied.

Sorry, I got my numbers confused. The Gen3 only adds, it is the Gen3.5 that can subtract. Since you have a Gen3, you can start with everything at zero. That makes the unit essentially a pass thru (ECU in total control of fuel). Any increase from there in green, yellow, or red will add fuel.
