If you would like to purchase a XV Tuner Interface Cable please visit my site for more information
Over the last year and a half I have been working very hard on understanding the Walbro ECU-C used in the SXV/RXV. In that time I have written software to communicate with the ECU. Until now this has been a closed project that has been limited to a handful of members. With the problems people have been having with TuneBoy, and the limited map database TuneBoy offers. I have decided to wrap my software into a user friendly package and offer it to the general public.
The software is linked to a USB cable that connects to the bike via the factory diagnostic port. I have custom designed/built these cables using the same connectors the factory uses. The cables are fully sealed, as well as short protected. The software/cable package will allow you to use the features below on any SXV/RXV with the Walbro ECU-C. It is not locked to a single ECU like TuneBoy.
Please PM me for more info.

To globally answer some questions I have had via PM.
WHAT WILL IT COST?
The software will be provided at NO COST via download. All future versions of the software will also be freely downloadable via a future website. The price for the lead/cable is still being worked out the final cost will be somewhere in the 250 - 275 range. When it is ready for sale there will be a proper method of payment setup outside the AF1 forums.
WHAT SUPPORT WILL YOU OFFER?
The support will be via email, and skype. I will be doing video on how to use the software shortly.
WHAT IS THE WARRANTY?
The lead is warranted for 1 year from the date of purchase. The software cares NO warranty.
WILL YOU REFUND ME IF IT DOESN'T WORK?
Absolutely, if after troubleshooting the issues if the software/cable doesn't work on your computer I will offer a full refund without question.
I will not offer refunds to people that have used the cable/software to map their bikes and try return the cable.
WHEN IS IT GOING TO BE READY?
The first batch of cable will be ready no later then June 15th.
WILL I BE ABLE TO MAKE MY OWN CABLE?
Currently no. The cables are pre-programmed to work with only the XV Tuner software. In the long-term road-map I plan to offer a SDK so people can write their own software.
WILL I BE ABLE TO MAP CUSTOM MAPS?
Currently no. The software will only upload the factory Aprilia maps. In the near future there will be an option to use third party software to modify the maps yourself. This feature will be released as a separate software package. The cost/timeline for this as not been fully established.
CAN YOU DO A CUSTOM MAP FOR ME?
Stuart @ Alice Racing has been kind enough to share his years of experience tuning some of the fastest SXV in the world. Included in the software package will be a custom map with his tuning tips. This will be the only non-factory map I will be providing.
