Changing map settings without the switch

I crushed my map switch ( dont ask how) and would like to set the bike to the agressive setting and leave it there. I was told I could add a resistor to the plug and achieve this BUT I read in the MXA test of the FX-450 that the different settings can be accessed by removing the wire or wires from a "port" and rearanging them to configure whichever setting you need. Has anyone tried this method?
This is what the article said :1) standard setting is leads unplugged
2) soft setting is leads in #1 slot
3) agressive setting is leads in #2 slot

Re: Changing map settings without the switch

Hi Glenn141,
I am not sure about the method you described.

You can do this:
Get a connector with some wire on it that suits the Map Switch plug on the Bike Wiring Harness. I found one on the Knock Sensor wiring loom on a Chev LS1 V8 Engine.
Buy a 6.8K Ohm 1/4 or 1/2 Watt Resistor 5% tolerance. The resistor should have these color bands on it, in this order Blue, Grey, Red, Gold.
Solder the resistor across the 2 wires. First bend one of the wires back around so the resistor runs the same direction as the wire (resistor parallel to the wire). This will makes it easy to tape up for protection.
Protect the resistor with some tape or heat shrink tubing (or both).
With this setup, plugged in you get Aggressive and unplugged you get Standard.


Personally, I would use a 15K Ohm Resistor as this would set it to more my riding style, soft


If you donate $20 to UHE and PM me your details I will post you a near new Map Switch with the factory instructions and original box. I upgraded mine to this setup:

Re: Changing map settings without the switch

Davo is correct, the maps are changed by the resistance in the circuit provided. Thats how the 70* map switch works. Its only $59 btw

Re: Changing map settings without the switch

I have a bauer map switch off my KTM, its a simple 2 position switch with no resistors in it, can I run a 6.8 resistor to one side of the switch and leave the other side alone and have a switch which will access the agressive or standard maps but not the soft?

A simple on/off Switch will give you Standard or Agressive mode

Re: Changing map settings without the switch

I thought of a better way to wire an on/off Switch as a Map Switch. I figure you would only need Aggressive and Soft. I don't see a need for Standard.


Aggressive for riding after 2 x Bourbon and Cokes
Soft for all other riding.

Re: Changing map settings without the switch

Gday Glenn,
After fitting the genuine Berg switch to the 570 I can concur there probably are better methods / styles of switches for the changing of maps, both home modified and aftermarket. But after a big weekend of serious off road riding, ( very steep uphills and some scary decsents) the traction setting is the only way to go.. more control,the soft or traction setting makes it a very compliant ride able bike that does not wear you out, as an allround setting standard is a good comprimise. Other than the beach / deep sand / motarding etc or if you have a death wish, I do not know where you could use all the acceleration of the aggresive or competition setting, though it is nice to change to the competion setting to get the blood really pumping! Rode all 3 settings around a basic loop, found a marked ( scary) difference between traction and competition settings. Lack of traction is a real issue in the competition mode even with new sharp rubber on the rear tyre.
If I riding in a new area, I would go in @ standard then dial in the level of insanity required. Even with the bog standard switch it only takes a minute to change maps..
Good luck with your switch.

Enjoy your BERG

Regards

Re: Changing map settings without the switch

I have done this two ways.
First is to just stick the desired resistor into the plug and goop it up. Change plug to change curve.

The other is a ON-OFF-ON toggle switch. Middle is stock, switch it one way or the other and you get the aggro or soft. I then mounted it in my number plate.
