    Summer temps here 90F and above, time to remap my Aracer

    I like to change my map on my groms when the temperature changes between winter and summer time since the air density is different. We've been having 90F in the San Jose area and I notice that my cylinder, head and oil temps have gone up about 20F from winter time oil was 168F to 186F, cylinder went from 205 to 230/240F, head has gone from 189F to 210F.

    At the stop light it goes up about 5-10F from the above readings.

    So you're not having more ''luck'' with aRacer compared to the PCV it seems.

    soooo.... wait, you mean to tell me that all monitored temps go up when ambient temps go up?


    SHOCKER!




    Never have to worry about this with my finbro, just let her sit n idle for 5 min for it to warmup and figure out some base fueling during me getting gear on and go. from 30*F to 110*F never an issue.

    Fuel injection was invented so you didn't have to tune carbs for the season...

    In all my time with carbs, once setup for the relative altitude I rode in most of the time... i was good for a wide range of temps as well. Tuned for 3k ft above sealevel my dirbikes, they would ride fine 30-100*f ambients anywhere from sealevel to ~8k ft.

    Most people don't tune carbs per season, but guys that want the most power do.

    Zero Issues with the aracer, way better than the PCV -WB02 for EZ of use

    Look at GromFatherZ he knows when a good ECU is needed he sticks with Aracer esp the RC-1, I have the mini2+ and might move up to the mini-5 due to the fact I can download the app and use it to tune my grom from my smartphone. Right now I'm not sure if they have the full version apps for the iphone.

    I don't see anything wrong with fine tuning if that's what you enjoy doing. Groms make a fun test bed to try things out just to see how they work. I'm always making little changes to find out what results they'll produce. Air cooled engines are designed to operate decently in a pretty wide temperature range.

    My interest is in efficiency and economy and I've found that ambient air temperature affects gas mileage on an air cooled engine. Warm weather and Summer blend fuel produce the best results. From Winter to Summer the spread is about 13 mpg... from about 132 mpg to about 145 mpg. I'm always looking for ways to increase it.
