70 degree map switch

installed a map switch from 70 degree racing.. at first i thought it wasnt working because there is so little difference between soft and agressive modes. however; when putting around fire trails in 2nd gear like i love to do at about 3000 rpm, i noted the agressive map the bike is jerky when you just touch the throttle. on soft setting, it is gentle, soft, and friendly.. the bike accellerates quicker on the highway on agressive mode

Re: 70 degree map switch

At first I didn't think it worked either, but then I noticed that I would break traction when shifting in the aggressive mode. And the more you gun it, the more the difference.

Re: 70 degree map switch

I have one as well and can't seem to tell the difference. Also, the kill switch does not kill the engine so I am unsure if it does anything at all. I double checked the connection so I know it is hooked up properly. Perhaps I am not in touch with my bike enough yet to tell a difference.

I assume you know that you have to have the engine OFF when you switch the map setting. The ECU only checks the setting when you start the bike.

Re: 70 degree map switch

I only use the soft setting in the rocks or in extreme mud. The rest of the time my FX450 stays in aggressive mode.

Re: 70 degree map switch

I can feel a noticeable difference between the soft or standard and aggressive settings but none between soft and standard. I sometimes wonder if soft and standard are the same. I started with an OE map switch which was c**p to use so finished up modding the redundant indicator switch on the left bar. Having to kill the engine to change settings is a PITA and goes a long way to negating the advantage of having switchable engine power characteristics in the first place. JMO

Re: 70 degree map switch

I have the OE map switch on my 390berg and have no issues with it. In aggressive mode the bike revs better and has more power.I have no problem in roots, rocks and tight stuff. I haven't touched it again

Re: 70 degree map switch

A 390 and a 570 in 'aggressive' mode are completely different animals. The 'soft' setting certainly benefits the 570 rider in the slippy stuff. JMO

No Issues???

The OEM map switch is crap in my opinion. You have to stop the bike and use 2 hands to change the position of the Switch. That is after you take your gloves off because you can't turn the Switch with your gloves on. Fumble with the rubber boot thing. Try your best to read the little numbers on the switch without your reading glasses.

Now this is a decent map Switch

Re: 70 degree map switch

Here is my switch. I built my own. I started with a Radio Shack mini toggle switch. Broke on the first ride. Went to a standard sized toggle switch mounted to a small dash board plate along with my key switch and grip heater switch. That had to go when I installed a steering stabilizer. So I ended up buying two handlebar mount 3-way switches from SicAss Racing (one for the heaters, one for the map).

I would have been better off just buying the 70 Degree switch in the first place. I ended up with a homemade equivalent that doesn't look as nice.
