Parallels is sold at the Apple Store. So I would considerate safe. Next Mac I get I'm setting up with parallels and the latest windows so I can get the best of both worlds. Okay not the best ( it will have windows on it) butt, at least it doesn't limit my ability with software.

I use VMWare simply because my business has been heavily vested in VM for our PCs for years. We use a lot of different types of industrial automation software that doesn't play well with others and is almost solely dependent on XP. Well last year I decided to try Mac and import some of our existing VM Images and test to see if our automation software worked and if I could communicate with a variety of RS232, USB, and Ethernet devices. It all worked perfectly. Very little learning curve and I've had no issues since. So in my opinion if you have the time to invest or are already tied into VM somehow that seems to be a good way to go with the Mac. I haven't found anything I can't talk to yet with it.

I will take at look at VM Ware again. I tried it MANY years ago, was a little disappointed.
Thanks from Prince Albert

I am using Bootcamp on my macbook air for a small win7 install to run the Rapidbike software, and it works perfectly

Bootcamp is supplied by Apple and is a free software package, only thing is that you need to reboot the computer to switch between operating systems, while parallels and VM work within MacOS so it is more akin to just running a program in the OS.

Also the status screen in the free software works and displays information about the injectors when the bike is running. Although it is not any information that I know how to use, so probably best to leave that for tuners

Quick Question,
At the risk of sounding like scrooge, What is so special about the Rapidbike usb lead to make it 6-8 times more expensive then a standard 4-6 wire usb lead ?

Cheapest new price I have been offered one for is 60 Euro delivered
(50GBP/$80USD)

Take a look at Oracle's VirtualBox. I have been using it for a very long time and it has support for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris hosts.

It works just like VMware, but it is free.

What do I have to do to make Bluetooth work?



I'm kind of confused on a few issues. Really all that is necessary is to install the unit, correct?

The base map that you guys load is designed to be close to what is ideal for the user, based on what his/her reported setup is. The auto adapt feature will fine tune it. Is it required to read and send this map to the RB module?

Or can one just ride for say, 200 miles after install, read and save the auto adapted map in case its ever needed to be reloaded as an updated "base" in the future?

I noticed on my RB, the "start correction" field was set at 3500 RPM. Is there a reason this woudn't be as low as possible; 1100 RPM?

Do you remember the paper that was included in your box? 1- warranty 2- how to register your Rb, you will find the clues in both papers.

All of our issues have been misuse and end user playing with settings without knowing how!

In most and almost all cases, you don't need to do anything but if you must know please e-mail me info@rapidbike.us

i don't get on the forum to read as much so if I missed and important question, it is better to communicate via e-mail.

Enjoy!
Y.T.

I'm aware of the paper and what's on it. Didn't answer my question(s) other than saying don't change anything because we say so.

Ok,

Bluetooth function allows you to communicate with the module wirelessly, you will need an additional device plugged into you existing RB harness to activate the future. $150 .

I have written a lot about RB here on this forum just use simple search function.

Having the adaptive tuning down to 1100 will interfere with your idling and cold starts which we do not control / adjust , it can create a confliction between stock ECU and the RB itself.

You will see typical changes after even 10-15 mile of riding the bike if you look at the trim maps under adaptivity maps. Let it work in the back ground it will CONSTANTLY change , negative or positive numbers have nothing to do with HP or anything else, it just means how much more or less fuel your bike needed in that particular throttle position and RPM to meet the TARGET. We found 3000-3500 rpm to be the best spot to start on Panigale, anything below that rpm is useless that is why where we started at is probably lowest you should go, 3000-3500 RPM . I hope all of your questions has been answered

Thanks.
Thanks from Phl
