I have a data tool one on mine and it only took an hour to wire it in to the clocks and program it at £50 not the cheapest but I like it Image

Aye well I would have liked one of those but as I understood it I would have had to splice into the ECU harness,a newer bike you buy a harness so it just plug in??? Don't know if the last of the Firestorms would qualify. ?
I know Lloydie has the Datatool version, but I did the same with my Acumen. Unbolted the clocks, turned them over, then all the connections I soldered to the wire terminals on the back of the clocks. Refit clocks then program the Acumen. I know some say they think they don't need one, I wouldn't be without mine.

I've not heard that before about having to splice them into the ECU wiring.

Yes Chris, I also think once you've tasted it. ...could well go down your route if this cheap version doesn't last. I'll ask your advise then.

Simo, hopefully yours will last for ages, but if you find at some point you need any advise on a more expensive one, you only have to ask :thumbup:
