The Vortex ECU is the ultimate bolt on for improved power and performance allowing for management and control over spark timing, voltage output, fuel mapping and other engine management functions.
A Taco Moto Co. recommended and approved power mod.
The result is more power, better power, easier starting and ultimately faster lap times.
This unit comes pre-programmed with 10 Performance Fuel & Spark timing maps as well as having 3 additional switches for user trimming of Fuel in Lo, Mid and Hi throttle openings.
The ECU plugs directly into the bikes standard wiring harness and interfaces with all the standard engine sensors such as ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature), IAT (Intake Air Temperature), MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure), TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), CPS (Crank Position Sensor) to adjust fuel and spark timing for optimum power delivery in all weather, altitude and load conditions.
Performance gains vary depending on Throttle and RPM points however typically gains are in Top End power and Bottom End throttle response is expected from the "Power" settings and a smoother more tractable or rideable power from the "Traction" settings.
We have done extensive work to include tune parameters which improve starting and almost eliminate the flameouts experienced with some EFI MX bikes. All of the development work is done for you! All that is left is for you to do is chose a setting that best suits your riding style or track conditions and ride!
The ECU is also fully programmable (Software not supplied) with parameters that are far more extensive than those found in any factory setting tools, such as Rev Limits, Throttle Enrichment & Decay time, Fuel timing, High Resolution Mapping, Dwell Time, Voltage Output and trim tables for cold starting, air intake temperature (IAT), Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT), Barometric Pressure, Battery voltage, etc...
In addition there is real time logging & graphing of many parameters (when combined with the ECU Software - not included)
Vortex products come with a 12 month warranty against manufacturing defects
The ECU does not come standard with a handlebar switch as this is an optional extra. There is no need for a switch eliminator when not running the handlebar switch as with our other CDI products
Pre Programmed with 10 Performance Fuel & Ignition maps - all the work is done for you!
Instant Plug in Performance (replaces standard ECU with no mods to wiring required)
Fuel Trim Switches adjust fuel mapping by +12.5% to -10% in Lo, Mid and Hi throttle bands. 5 is the baseline setting and each click represents 2.5% more or less fuel per click.
The unit comes pre-set with all three fuel trim dials preset to 5 = no fuel added. Use a calibrated air fuel ratio system or consult an experienced engine tuner when making any fuel trim changes as engine damage or performance issues could result from fuel ratios outside of proper range for your bike and its use.
Requires the use of 91 minimum octane fuels for stock engine EXC, XCF-W, FE and FEs bikes. Motorcross bikes and machines with modified internals / higher compression ratios will require higher octane fuel.
Users should keep a high standard of air filter, fuel system and exhaust manitence. Repack slip on, clean air filter, clean spark arrestor, replace fuel filters and ensure a full and unobstructed fuel injector spray pattern. Clean and service these components as needed.
Its advisable to use a fuel system / injector cleaner at least every 150-200 hours and we’ve had good results with the Chevron Techron additive mixed to its correct ratio in a full tank of gas.
Adjustments require only a screwdriver and integrated switches provide visual feedback.
Simple to install with mounting hardware supplied (where required)
V-Boost - Programmable Voltage Boost Circuit for maximising Spark Energy across the entire rev range
Higher / Lower Rev Limits are preset for each map
Very durable design and O-ring sealed to keep water and splashes out.
Diagnostic Flash codes - tests for sensor faults and flashes codes to OEM FI light
Race Proven reliability
Re Programmable (Software and Interface hardware not Included)
Taco Moto Co tested and approved
All Vortex products are factory programmed with Performance Fuel and Ignition Maps developed through extensive dyno and track testing by Vortex Ignitions engineers with our network of race teams worldwide.
Installation and set up of the Vortex requires that the TPS on your machine be set to the factory stock setting for proper performance. Consult your bike’s repair manual for information on the calibration and set up of the TPS.
