Question 2014 KTM 500 EXC Re Map ?

Can the 2014 KTM 500 EXC ECU be remapped ? I have been told that it is locked from the factory. I don't know if it is different from the earlier versions.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. My local shop was able to figure it out and get it done.

A lot of dealers won't go near unlocking a locked ECU due to KTM penalizing dealers that do this. But you can find guys that will. I had Thumper Racing from Nevada unlock mine and add the Euro exc-w map. Much richer, but much happier bike :) A lot of guys to with a US xc-w map as well with nice results.

Hmmm interesting. Post that over at www.ktmtalk.com and you'll get pointed in the right direction for sure.

Did it start right after a new map was put on? Any chance it feels like fuel starvation, maybe clogged injector?

It happened after the remap,the flash code is Lambda sensor heater cylinder 1,sensor 1-input signal too high.Does feel like it might be fuel or lack of, not sure what the Lambda does? going to take it back to the dealer next week.It does run very well at low speed just needs to keep running after half throttle to full.Also ran well stock but had a misfire on throttle shut down but ran sharp,did flame out when it was running at slow speed. thanks for the info

That's because the dealer loaded the a version of the map that uses inputs from an O2 sensor. The ECU was looking for inputs from the O2 sensor.

exw part number

Being from California I cant find anyone to remap my stock Ecu to the xcw map. So I was thinking about just ordering an xcw map. that way if I want to make mapping changes I can just ship that one out of state and keep riding. Any thoughts? Also I can't find a part number for an ecu. I'm asumming you are able to order one from ktm?
Thanks!
*xcw - thanks auto correct
