What is ECU Tuning?

The ECU (Engine Control Unit) is a kind of computer which is commonly used in vehicles with internal combustion engines.  The ECU controls the amount of fuel, ignition advance and other parameters that the internal combustion engine needs to run smoothly under the given conditions. The ECU does this by monitoring inputs like throttle position, rpm, gear position, air temperature and coolant temperature amongst others and making decisions about how much fuel to provide, etc.

Vehicles that are manufactured for the global market are typically provided as 'stock', meaning they all have been set up the same way and designed to perform well under a wide range of conditions.  Stock ECU's are generally far from optimal and are developed to allow for a wide range of riding styles, fuel quality and operational conditions. The result of this is often a compromise between many possible conditions resulting in sub-optimal performance for any specific conditions. Significant improvements can then often be achieved through correcting the stock ECU and tuning the engine to take full advantage of it's potential.

ECU tuning is the process of updating the software that runs on your bikes ECU. This allows you to change various maps and settings in your ECU and significantly improve the performance of your engine. The Woolich Racing Tuned software works with our products to allow you to adjust the maps and write those changes to your bike's ECU.

Be sure to check out our testimonials. We have dyno charts, success stories (from both individuals and professional tuners), and pictures of some of the bikes already experiencing the benefits of a tuned ECU.
