AF-XiED question

So this weekend I'm installing a AF-XiED, a new battery and also new brass fuel connections while I'm in there. My question is does it matter that I'm going to disconnect the battery to swap it out which would reset the BMSK ECU learned maps at the same time as installing the AF-XiED? Or should I install the AF-XiED first, run it then install new battery. Don't know if any of that matters or not just thought I'd throw that out there...

Thanks

Re: AF-XiED question

If you were just installing the AF-XIED without replacing the battery with a new one you would have to remove the battery and the fuel tank anyway to get at the connections. I can't see why replacing the battery itself would matter. BTW I was very happy with the AF-XIED when I put one on my K1200S.

Re: AF-XiED question

Make some small gauge jumper cables long enough to keep the battery connected even when out of the cycle. When I add an accessory to the battery terminals, I use small jumpers to keep everything powered while the leads are not actually connected to the battery.

Capital Idea! I do the same when replacing the Battery on our cars as well.

In the past is was a good idea to connect a 9-V transistor battery to the Cigarette Lighter Socket but most modern cars disconnect these sockets when the Key (Fob) is out.

It doesn't matter. No reset caused by battery disconnect. You'll be fine

Re: AF-XiED question

So took her for a ride today after the install...noticeable difference.
Easy...hardest part is getting the damn fairings off and on. Used velcro to stick the controller right on the battery for easy access.
Funny enough while I was disconnecting the plastic fuel disconnects one of them broke in half...I can't believe BMW uses cheap plastic for crucial parts like that I'm glad I upgraded them. I also tossed in a new battery.
Now the bike shifts smoother especially with the quick shifter - much less backfire. Throttle response is much improved...I think I need to clean and sync the throttle bodies to get it as good as possible. Didn't stall at all when I came to a stop today and the terrible flat spot from about 4-5500 (especially in 4th gear) is almost gone. I do think my old GPR exhaust is crap though I'm betting the bike would run a bit better with a quality Akra or Remus can instead. Overall - worthy upgrade for the money highly recommend.

Re: AF-XiED question

Edit - researching it looks like you can't sync throttle bodies. Is cleaning them something the dealer does (i.e. not really a DIY deal)?
