Here is what we have for this beautiful bike:

http://www.bazzaz.net/Z-notes/PDF/Honda_CBR250.pdf
"Use slip-on map as base when self-mapping, even with a full system":)

i about to turn on the flux capasi.....i mean the self mapping thing , quick questions before i do:

what target AFR (air fuel ratio) does Mr Bazzaz recommend for this bike ?

will be self-mapping today without a dyno , any suggestions !?:cool:

do you have a full system SS? If its a slip I can send you my map. Though we are at way different sea levels..ect..
Target AFR Mine is at 13:2 though I think. I think its 13:0 from factory. Not sure though

got the full yosh (forgot you the man with these questions):cool:

im just going to turn on the Flux Capacitor and ride the bike for a few days so the mapping can be according to my regular driving .

can you elaborate on what IS the AFR and "how to" self map this bike ?
....(wait "self-mapping" ?):confused: you know what i mean HoPMiX :D:D


all this Bazzaz stuff is new to me...most bikes are fast enough not to need mapping kits ;)

btw-sea level = 0 feet but South Florida weather is crazy , is kinda cold right now , perfect for riding :)

haha. I wish. Only thing I know about motorcycles is that they are expensive.
lol...
AFR air to fuel ratio.
SO you have a Yosh full system and a Bazzaz Z-fi? Do you have the Bazzaz AFM? The afm is the module that takes readings from a sensor you install in pipe and auto corrects the ecu based on the AFR you want to run. If you just have the Z-fi and you install it, it has a map that Bazzaz did on a CBR nack in chino hills. Should be better than your stock ecu mapping but the sea level/atmospheric pressure effects things and Bazzaz is in a place 1200 feet above sea level. Also tuned to a slip on and not a full system.
If you have the Z-FI and AFM you can just ride it out and it will adjust. If you only have your Z-fi then You will need to hit a performance shop and have them dyno the bike and tune it specifically to your bike. ESP with a full system. It prolly running so lean right now. I also suggest removing your snorkel from the airbox before the tune if your running at higher rpms.

AFM is 299
you could prolly get a custom tune for 200.00
but for 100 extra bucks, you'll always be getting peak performance.

Pretty sweet, I have a question though. I have The Dynojet DFC and I got 25.6 HP on the Dyno with a slip on. Would that just be the tuning difference?
I would say that would be difference in Dyno's, not tunes.

^ excellent point :)

i got both the Z-FI and the AFM (i like to cut out the middleman for $100 please)("let's make a deal" voice)

im running map #1 which i almost %100 sure is for aftermarket exhaust
...but i would like to leave that map just in case any abnormal reading or i get stuck or something , so i will try to self-map #2.

would like a hwy map and a city map (translation) > track map or stunt map ;)

if you have any more suggestion , keep'em coming please :cool:

thanks HoP :cool::cool:

The simple answer is somewere between 13.2 and 13.5 for a stock motor with pump gas and stock ignition.
I had mine tuned for 2 maps and I can pop in a little dongle to switch them. I never do. Just keep my turbo map rocking all the time.
You will lose a little gas milage but not enough to make you wanna sell your bike. Your gonna be on your throttle full on all the time anyway. (MY gsxr with sprocket conversion and tune is getting 25 now running 93. fn bull) think it needs a new tune.

:D:D you know me well brother :cool::D:D

my bike is gear'd already so the MPG thing when out the window (was never really a mpg's fanatic , but when i think about it , i just look at the other vehicles around me):)

:D:D:D..soooo, set the afr at like 13.4 , hit start and ride around with lost of roll on's on all gears !? :)
get back home , hit stop , retrieve and apply !? :confused:

BTW- 1 down +5 on 600 is perfect gearing for fun ;)

Mr. Bazzaz or anyone competent enough to answer:
Is this unit has the same problem with Dynojet's unit regarding O2 sensor like it does not not allow fine tune on AFR around 85 percent blah blah blah?
I am asking this questions on this forum for a long time and so far no one answered or enlightened us on "no fine tune adjustment around 85 percent on AFR due to O2 sensor" What does it officially mean guys?
This is the key question for me to buy the ecu or not and i am sure for many here. As, i do not see/hear any explanation about it, i afraid that, ecu manufacturers hide the truth from us?
Any answers?
Thanks in advance.

Bahaaaha. Just ride a wheelie every where you go.
What gearing you have on your cbr. I have -1 front +1rear sitting here that i havent put on. At the track I am eating the ninjas in the corners. Pulling away out of corner and then a couple seconds later the pass me and throw me the bird. If i go down in gearing im going to be even slower. Think im gonna try it out sunday though.

Well when we tuned the bike we did it a base of 13.0 AFR.

Here is the procedure to tune your bike when using the ZAFM

1: Plug into the software on go into the Self Map Tab
2: Press Start/Exit the Soft ware
3: Ride the bike for a good 20 min. Try to hit every gear
4: Plug back into the Software/Self Map Tab
5: Press Stop
6: Press retrieve
8: Press Apply All
9: Press Clear
10: Repeat in same order

You get 97 mph on an honest flat, two way run or as a maximum on a down hill with a tail wind
actually sendler , .....on an honest flat !!! :cool:

with the gearing , she has no problem reaching her limit , i have to let go of the throttle so the rev limiter doen't zap me :eek:

great upgrade for this bike

you lose top end :(

...but at least now you get there :)
