The tune ecu won't allow you to remove service icon. For some, the trips to the dealer to have it removed could add up fast.
Someone needs to corner the market with a tool that does it all for cheap.

People buy a 12k motorcycle, add another 2 to 3k in farkles and complain about paying $120 bucks or so for a software (which is a tool just as much as a torque wrench)? Really? You gotta be kidding me.

Buying and riding motorcycles is a money burner, don't buy one if you can't afford it. It's always fun that people easily have $100 for a torque wrench, booze on a weekend, or whatever else, but claim that thousands of hours spent on developing a software should be free ... as a software developer myself I can't really like such people ...

I'm not pissed at all. I just don't like people that want all software for free. A developer is spending thousands of hours on the software. Buy it or don't, but don't question the work going in there with saying it needs to be free or cheap.

It's often enough the same group of people spending a lot of money on "lifestyle" things, like alcohol, motorcycles, phones, ... And then say that they don't want to spend the money for a song, a movie, a piece of software. I think this is sad.

And your other comment: I didn't know I had to ask you for permission to read and write here. And if I had known, I still wouldn't care ...

Its all good, I see what your saying. I was just giving you a hard time. I've always wanted to ask if someone got shit on. You just gave me the right opportunity.

Oh I see what your problem is. The next time I make a wisecrack about wanting another ob2 tool for cheap, I will check to make sure no software engineers are listening.
For the record, the dealertool is on my list, along with many other things.

On a different note, my leo vince showed up today!

Put new 705's on the XC today and rode it for 70 miles. Pretty good in the gravel so far.

Just a thought.
Maybe I am missing something here but I always figured since we know our height and inseam readily that subtracting the two is a pretty good estimate of seated torso/head height. Yeah I know some might have more back than others but I think it is a pretty good estimate that if one is 6' and a 29" inseam and one is 6' with a 31" inseam it is fair to say the first one sits taller than the second. Or that someone that is 6'2" and 31" inseam sits pretty close to the height of the first one.

Last time I checked, Tuneecu was not COTS software is it ? So, I guess some software engineers do it for the challenge
