At what point does it say the log file is corrupted? Is it when you go to open the file in the Engine Data Viewer Screen? can you post us a list of steps you take?

Data logging adn flashing are two totally separate things.

Since you say you are hooking up the pC after logging, I asume you are using a log box.

Download the .wrl file to the PC, then disconnect fron teh log box. Open ecu editor and then open your latest .bin and open the .wrl file within ecu editor.

Work with the auto tune or whatever you are going to do with the file. Then save the .bin to another name. I typically increment a number in teh file name to keep track of changes. Sometimes I have a text file tuning log that I keep track of notes relating to what was done with each file, sometimes I make a long file name that desribes the file changes.

Connect to the bike and flash teh new .bin file.

Putting the switch to the middle doesn't get rid of anything on the log box, the .wrl files continue to write, incrementing by "1" in the file name.
Since the file name is only 3 digits long, I am not sure what would happen if you have 999 files on the card (justin?).


If you have no need for the log files, you can just connect the USB to the logbox and windows should automatically recognize the drive. You can then manage or delets the files through conventional windows file management.

If you have multiple .wrl files relating to the same .bin file (very importnant that they are from the same .bin file in the ecu) you can open up multiple files at once to have the autotune work from a larger bank of data.

After data logging hook pc up to bike copy and paste to desktop then connect via engine data to make sure com ports are set x out go to data log screen view file which I sent to desk top press auto tune then flash. Put switch back in middle to get rid of old data files on log box then go to engine data to restart data log and here's where's the shyt hit the fan data log will not start corrupt file notify symbol pops up. The only way I can get it to work from here is to pull bin file out of ecu redo settings for data log

Ok so once you start data logging there's no need to restart it after every session it's already setup, and I see my other mistake by staying connected to bike. Thxs alot will try later tonight hopefully the rain holds off

Being connected to the bike doesn't matter.

I think you are misunderstanding teh use of the log box. There is no manual input required to start and stop a log. There is a configuration that can be setup to start only after a certain time or coolant temp, etc, but even it doesn;t need to be configured if you don't want to. The data logging that is embedded in ecu editor is to be used while the computer is connected to the bike, such as during a dyno session. The log box does its own thing and is not connected to teh data logging portion of teh ECU editor software, two different ways to log.

Ok so once data logger is setup there's no need to touch nothing else with it, so once it's on it is always on

That is correct. It will create a new log everytime you start the bike adn it reaches teh operating parameters you put in the log box configuration. .

wow omg i dont know what i was trying to do guess i was thinking to much its so much easier when you read and follow directions...lol but thank you all who helped from this forum and big thank you to greg from boostbysmith for trying for days. so much easier now data logged twice with no problems or corruptions... sweet. thank you again.

Glad you got it working. Don't feel bad for not knowing how to do it. It is not extremely intuitive sometimes. Those of us who have been around awhile remember all the little "kick the tire" and "jiggle the wire" things that need to be done to make it work whereas a new person woudln't know.

Hey sportbikeryder, are you the same as the sportbikeryder on psychobike? And if so do you race at Memphis?

on more quick question when i data logging at track and i do my burn out will it affect my map like it did with bazzaz making it to lean.

How lean does it run when doing a burn out? there are data log filters where you can filter out AFR logs above/below a certain value.

I haven't experienced yet with this data logger but I had a bazzaz self mapper and I found out the hard way when data logging at the track during your burn out will make the bike go lean. I'm on way to a test and tune

ok well let me know how you go and if the lean burnout is a problem!

Did you have the Bazazz in closed loop? The Log Box does not tune the bike, you tune the bike when reviewing the logged data.

I'm not sure why doing a burnout would show up as a rich condition, causing an ecu to suggest pulling fuel?

 Because Denso Ecu are kinda RAW in theyr corrections,

Speed correction are "guessed" by a table where it compare the gear used with RPM,

so for example in 1st gear at 10.000 rpm, the Ecu guess you should be at 120km/h and

enriche the fuel by X% to compensate for the air flowing into the intakes.

 

During a burnout the Ecu think you are speeding up, so the Ecu compensate the guessed speed

by adding fuel, but in fact you are not moving, thus the very rich AFR.

Are you referring to the "Ramair map" accessible in the Hayabusa bin Advanced settings

or some other internal table not accessed by ecueditor?

Not sure if a similar issue and have only started using the logger after fitting a heap of things to bike so could be way off mark BBBUUTTTT! Gauges are playing up!

Justin doesn't seem to think its a problem with the logger and I believe him, why wouldn't you? but seems strange its only just started happening since I started using the log box.

I am using Generic ECU for Busa program in B-King setting as this is the only setting that wouldn't give me an F1 light so maybe could be this but just putting it out there in case anyone else may have experienced something similar???

I haven't seen this setting before as I've been away for a while but seems to work OK although tune is way off as I have fitted Yoshi R-55 and have modified airbox with larger intakes and K & N filter plus Nitrous gear so expect to be out!

To eliminate some things, you could flash the stock B-King bin file back into the bike and remove the log box, and see if this makes any difference to the gauges.

The code to make the busa bin file work with the b-king gauges basically inserts the b-king gauge code into the busa bin as the serial signal for the b-king contains additional information not in the serial packet sent to the busa gauges. I would be very surprised if it is log box related as all the log box is doing is requesting engine data from the ecu and logging it to the micro sd card, this is a very different part of the code than the gauge data routines... but anything is possible :)

Let me know how you go.

Cheers

-Justin.
