When it comes to ECU tuners for the Polaris RS1, the gains you can attain are truly astounding. By fine tuning your machine and optimizing it for specific riding domains, you can not only see awesome performance gains, but also get the most out of the aftermarket accessories that you install. Companies like Bikeman Performance, Aftermarket Assassins, and Vivid Racing can all tune your rig to optimize for a variety of outputs. The PowerVision ECU Tuner by Dynojet is another solid programmer. And while some have said that the boxed Dynojet tunes suck, the great part about it is that you can customize to your liking. It is possible to load multiple different tunes from anyone who can program them, so you are not limited to just the Dynojet tunes. You can even upload several different tunes, switching back and forth on the fly depending on the situation. Different tune programs are pretty easy to install as well. You can download them online or get the file by email. You the plug the programmer up to the USB port on the computer, drag and drop the file in the programmer file, and that’s it, you’re done.
Depending on what program you run, you can achieve better throttle response, have the fans kick on separately or at lower temperatures, and remove the roll limit. There are some other settings that can be changed to gain a higher top speed in low and reverse. Fuel mapping can be altered with an ECU tuner as well, and a different throttle mapping can make your RS1 more responsive. And this is all just with the stock, preloaded, DynoJet tune. Companies like Bikeman, Aftermarket Assassins, and many more can all write tunes based on your specific machine and the accessories you run. Reflash boxes are far better than a once-and-done reflash, as they’re customizable, can be adjusted immediately, and provide day and night performance enhancements.
