modify the current calibration. Calibration files may be selected from the
“File” menu, modified, and saved without connecting to a powered-up
module. Once a connection to the module is made, you can download a new
file, or modify the existing settings.

Note: You can program the ignition module with the bike running, or not running.

into the module at a later time. For off-line editing you do not need to
be connected to the module.

Edit the calibration programmed in the ignition module. To upload the
calibration from the module, click on the “Link” icon.
