    For 13+ V7 (Mk I, II & III) & V9 owners; I'm excited to say I am now selling a touch-screen Flash Tool (FT) box to those wanting to do corrective ECU fueling, WITHOUT removing ECU/TB and shipping it in. This will be one bike specific, meaning it will capture the ECU #, and only communicate with it, no others. It is also a full diagnostic tool, and will reset the TPS and Auto Learn functions (mandatory post re-flash) among many other things. It will also allow you to return/flash it back to the stock map (it will read and keep your stock map once you connect) or any future map revisions for whatever reason, with me via email. This is the only option for fueling corrections, as the MIU ECU used on the V7/V9 cannot accept a PC-V/AutoTune.

    For those asking, it is not public roadway legal.

    '09-12 V7 models with 15RC ECUs, I recommend the Full Kit with PC-V/AutoTune HERE.

    For all others, click the pic below or HERE for order info.

    Cool. I used to have to do that with a Saab I had. It really did work quite well. I bought the unit, then followed instructions and sent them my VIN number. They would then set me up with a map that I downloaded off the web.

    That is great! Not having to pull the ECU and wait on shipping is a big plus!

    Hi Todd

    I'm certainly interested in this, as it looks more feasible for us overseas customers who can't really send bits of their bike over to you. I look forward to hearing more.

    Merry Christmas.

    As Seasider said, this is a great idea for overseas customers. Can maps from any source be loaded on it?

    If I'm reading correctly, sounds perfect. I can get your standard, but much improved over stock Map. And then a second Map for open exhaust and intake, or what ever combination I need. Correct? Up charge for 2 Maps?

    take my money!
    Having a means of interacting with the ECU like this makes me feel more empowered as the bike owner, to be able to get the bike running it's best. That's the only thing I miss about carbs; being able to influence the fuel tuning personally...

    That is correct. I do not charge for additional maps or revisions for one year after purchase.

    Not yet, as I don't have them in my hands. I'll update the photos once I do, and it will be branded with the GuzziTech/GT-Rx® logo on screen at power up. The touch-screen is a little over 4" wide x 3" tall. Unit is .75" thick and weighs less then 6 oz.

    Fantastic! So with this little gadget I won't need to send you my ECU to reflash? Absolutely perfect for us overseas clients. Well done Todd, I'll be letting my local Guzzi specialist know about this one for sure...

    In the future when I do the 820 kit and a stainless exhaust will this doodad tune the ECU for that as well?

    That is correct. No need to send me your ECU, and thanks/appreciated.

    So, this programmer only works for >2013 V7s? Is the solution for the <2013 ones to send it in for reflash?

    The box will work on any Marelli ECU, so I can offer it for the 15RC on your pre-'12 V7. I just updated the purchase page to offer this option now; https://www.guzzitech.com/store/product/gt-rx-v7-ecu-re-flash-tool/

    Todd, can you clarify a couple of points:

    If people place an order, do they send you an e-mail/ PM to choose what map to have pre-loaded onto the unit prior to delivery? i.e your standard GT map and another one that you might advise and have available for different set ups such as 820 conversion kit?

    Does it have to be connected to the bike in order to be able to first save the bike's standard mapping and save it for later re-set, or is the standard map pre-loaded onto the unit already?

    What is the process for actually connecting it to the ECU?

    It works like this... Purchase the box online. When you get the box, you will plug it in to your PC via USB cable. Let it update the tool. From there, plug it into your bike via the diagnostic plug under the seat, and it will read/capture/store the stock map onto the device. Once the tool has read the ECU. You will connect it back to your PC, and send me the *.usr file to manipulate, and I will send it back revised to upload and flash to the bike.

    The big upside to this box, is that at any time, I can email you a revised map to upload via supplied USB cable, and you can flash away. Make sense?
    Other questions?

    Thanks for the prompt reply, Todd. That makes it clearer for me.

    This is brilliant. Sorry I missed the original posting. I'm now thinking on a V7 ii over my old V7 i and looking forward to this upgrade.

    What do you expect a revision to cost after the year is over?

    i am very interested in this, but our dollar has tanked, i just bought something for 300US and 45US shipping and was 700CDN

    my aunt has just offered us a chunk of US money for par, and my wife will be in California near the end of February for a day or 2, maybe we can arrange something?
