Quite easy.

Plug in the cable to the bike. Connector should be located underseat near the ABS unit or near the glove compartment.

Run TuneEcu, make sure the right lower corner has a green signal indicating positive comunication with the ECU. On top right, select map, and then go to the menu and find "Read Map".

During readout don't do anything else.

After reading the map, make sure you save it somewhere in a folder clearly identified as the "stock" map you got qith the bike. This will be your backup if anything goes wrong.

Next, open the desired map. Make sure it is compatible with your bike. A 2011 map won't run on a 2006 bike.

If you want to use a 2011 map, you'll have to copy the values from the 2011 tables and past into a 06-08 map. Can't assure a 09/10 map will also work.

Meanwhile take some time and see diagnostics, verify if there are any DTC's (error codes). If the throttle is fine, don't touch the TPS.

When ready to get the "new"map into the ECU, go to map tab and then select "download" in the menu above.

While downloading the map into the ECU it's advisable to have the laptp plugged to power and a battery tender to the bike battery.

After downloading go to tests and press reset adaptation.

Some will say you'll need a 15 minute engine run idling without touching the throttle, others will say ride on.

That's it.

Carefull this tool can be dangerous if improperly used. Baby steps.
