why do you need a "dash delete kit" to install that?
Ugh... that's not good. By ftecu standards guess that "kit" is like an extra 300 bucks.
What does Aim dash offer over stock? Does it have Aim solo 2 laptimer included or still need to be purchased separately?Finally got my final version mounting bracket in. The installation of my AiM MXS dash logger is now complete. This dash barely fits in exactly the same location as stock. Way nicer than the I2M Chrome!

Correct, slide control is locked OFF.awesome being the guinnea pig for the community bro. Thanks for that.
So basically you are saying that slide control cannot be activated at all with that dash?
The ERS stuff is a big thing for those with R1Ms. At least it would be for me if I had spent the extra 5k for it.
It's probably because the microcontroller they are using for the dash delete doesn't have enough I/Os for switching control of the SCS. They claim it's because their experience working with MotoAmerica riders not preferring the SCS.That is just the FTECU software. It does not support it for some reason......
I called ftecu also, they told me they used an r1m they have in their shop to delvelop this kit.It's probably because the microcontroller they are using for the dash delete doesn't have enough I/Os for switching control of the SCS.

SC is "OFF" per ftecu. They said it was preferred off during development.So when you say slide control is locked off, does that mean SCS is actually turned off, or it uses whatever SCS setting you had before you removed the stock dash?
I like SCS, not being able to adjust it is ok, but having it turned off is a NO NO for me....just curious!!
Get the i2M Dash from superbikeunlimited.comHi guys
Thought I would chime in since this is basically the only thread I can find regarding FT ECU and AIM logging
2012 r6, ft race team package, AIM evo4
This project has killed me, I tossed the bike aside 12 months ago because of it and pulled it back out to try again a few weeks ago.
So I buy the FT race package aim enabled $700us, aim evo4 off ebay $1300us, AIM ecu interface cable for the r6 $50us. I put it all together and it doesn't work hmmmm
I contact FT via there support desk.. I wait days and days... No response.... I call them from Australia, after a long time talking and referring to colleagues Oh you need a converter from Aim "a FT special one", not the one you bought off the AIM website zero mention of this anywhere before purchase !
I contact Aim Australia, They have absolutely no idea what I am talking about
I contact Aim US, in particular the office near FT Yes you need a converter module, I can make one for you as its a bit of a special item $180us... The item was lost in the post! After 3 months Aim US sent another (many thanks given)
I wire it up... it doesn't work
I call FT....after many many of minutes answering the same questionsdo you have a TOS sensor jumper yes I do its a YEC one (its a simple resistor same same yec or ft ecu) No you need a special FT one... fml, fine $60us
FT TOS jumper turns up, and guess what? it functions exactly the same as the yec one and didn't make any difference!
I call FT.... Its not working still, Oh looks like on our system you have the 08 bike side harness, you need the race team package bike side harness FML fine $250us (there website mentions this but its worded very well to miss it.
Still not working they were meant to call me back last week but didn't
The FT install document ion is terrible and leaves alot of educated fingers crossed guessing (I understand the r6 has a number of ecu's, harness's and combos etc etc, but FT needs to have all this sorted before selling a plug and play kit that claims to do a million things...... if your still in the beta stage, thats cool but dont treat me like shit, milk me for all the money you can then give no support)
If you guys know any r6 FT Aim combo users, please hook me up would love a chat
FML I will never ever recommend FT to any fellow racer ever again..... Nor Meen motorsports but that's a different story, God help him if I ever come to the US
