Major VRFI Advantages over Competitive Systems

  • · Real-time and continuous auto-tuning with monitoring, control and override capability. No other commercially available system offers all these capabilities. For a more in-depth explanation of what this means and why it so important, please visit the VRFI Tech FAQ.

    · User friendly PC Link software with 3-D graphics and easy spreadsheet editing capabilities. For example, changing a block of cells in our advance table takes only a few mouse clicks. But don't take our word for it, check it out yourself. Download and play around with our PC Link VRFI software. Then try the same editing in the ThunderMax® SmartLink software and draw your own conclusions.

    · Built-in data logging. Competitive ThunderMax® systems lack built-in data logging. Without built-in data logging, it is almost impossible to diagnose real-world problems. Download our VRFI Log software and look at the sample data logging file.

    · Knowledgeable and prompt technical support. At Daytona Twin Tec, you can always reach a technician during normal business hours. You won't be told to send an email and wait for a response. In some situations, we may ask you to email us your current setup file and a data logging file that shows the problem, but an initial conversation is always with a trained technician. After hours and weekend support is available for racers.

The VRFI is the V-RodTM version of our proven TCFI fuel injection system for Twin Cam applications.

The VRFI kit includes the new WEGO IIID dual channel wide-band exhaust gas oxygen interface that allows quick auto-tuning on a dyno or on-road during actual riding conditions. The kit includes Bosch LSU 4.2 wide-band sensors for both front and rear cylinders. The user programs a table with the desired air/fuel ratios - the system then does the rest. Competitive systems claim auto-tuning capability. Visit our Tech FAQ and find out why the VRFI system is superior. 

The VRFI solves tuning problems with highly modified engines. Competitive “band-aid” products that interface to the Delphi® controller still rely on speed-density fuel control. Long duration/high overlap camshafts wreak havoc with manifold pressure - especially at idle and cruise RPM. Speed-density based fuel control simply can’t cope.

High-end automotive racing systems use alpha-N (throttle position and RPM based) fuel control. Alpha-N eliminates any dependence on manifold pressure and is unaffected by long duration/high overlap camshafts. The VRFI brings this proven technology to the H-D® marketplace.  

Unlike competitive "band-aid" products that only control fuel delivery, the VRFI allows complete control over all engine functions, including ignition advance, idle RPM and cold start characteristics. This facilitates the use of throttle bodies modified for higher airflow.

All V-RodTM motorcycles use the SAE J1850 data bus for communications between the engine control module (VRFI), instrument cluster, and turn signal/security module (TSM/TSSM). The VRFI fully supports the J1850 data bus. The VRFI also has built-in data logging that stores data for the last 60 minutes of operation at 10 samples/second. A USB interface and Windows compatible software allow the use of a laptop PC for programming and data analysis. The USB interface plugs into the existing H-D® diagnostic connector on the motorcycle wiring harness. 

 

   

 VRFI Installation

The VRFI is intended for high performance race engines. We provide setup tables that will get you up and running. From a practical standpoint, tuning any fuel injection system requires an exhaust gas analyzer. You can either spend a lot of time on a dyno with an exhaust sniffer (like the newer Dynojet units) or you can use our WEGO. With the WEGO, the system will auto-tune the fuel tables while you ride the bike - you won't need to spend any time on a dyno. Auto-tuning under actual riding conditions only takes a few hours and gives much more realistic results that dyno tuning.

Smoken Joe Petersen of the Peformance Cycles Race Team (Wlimington, NC) is shown below at a recent AHDRA event at Rockingham. The programmable user function on the VRFI allows him to control a nitrous system. With street tires, stock wheelbase, and retaining the drive belt, he ran a 9.85 ET at 130.62 MPH! 

Special Speed-Density Versions for Turbo/Supercharged Applications 

Daytona Twin Tec can supply special VRFI Gen 4 units with speed-density firmware that supports turbo/supercharged applications with up to 3 bar (300 kPa) manifold pressure. The only required electrical modification to the motorcycle is that a Delphi 3-bar (40-304 kPa) MAP sensor must be installed in place of the OE MAP sensor. Higher flow rate fuel injectors and/or additional fuel injectors are also required for most applications. The VRFI system can drive up to four injectors (two per cylinder). The system also supports fuels such as E85. For more information, refer to the VRFI 300 kPa Speed-Density Firmware Tech Note. Additional materials including a fuel calculator are available on our download page.

PC Link Software for Programming Custom Advance and Fuel Tables

PC Link software runs under Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7/8. We no longer support older Windows versions. PC Link allows the user to program all the engine control tables and parameters within the Twin Tec VRFI system. Minimum PC requirement is a 300 MHz Pentium with super VGA display (SVGA with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution). The VRFI connects to the PC by means of a USB interface. A USB cable is supplied with the unit. The PC must have a free USB port. For more details, please refer to our PC Link Tech FAQ.

3D tables are used for ignition advance and fuel control. Additional 2D tables are used for functions such as cold start enrichment and idle air control. Some sample tables are shown below.

The VRFI also features a user input and user output that can serve various functions. The user input can be configured for data logging (such as the status of a switch), ignition retard, ignition kill (for air shifter), or stage RPM limit. The user output can drive a relay and be configured as a general purpose RPM and throttle position based switch or to trigger an NOS system.  

User Functions Screen

PC Link software is free! You can always download the latest version of the software and instruction sheet from our website. The software will run in demo mode without a VRFI system attached. For your convenience, we include a copy on CDROM when you purchase the VRFI system.

VRFI Data Logging Software

The VRFI features comprehensive data logging capability. During dyno testing, you can display real time engine data on an instrument panel type screen. The VRFI also stores data for the last 60 minutes of operation at 10 samples/second. You can download and display this data on a chart recorder type screen. Data is available for all sensor inputs and output functions. The VRFI data logging capability greatly facilitates fine tuning and diagnosis of driveability issues. The data logging software, VRFI Log, has the same PC requirements as described above for  the PC Link software. For more detailed information, we suggest that you download the VRFI Log software and instructions. The software download includes a sample file with actual data.  

Real Time Engine Data Display

 

Data Logging Chart Display

The data logging software also allows you to download operating statistics and historical diagnostic codes.  Downloaded operating statistics are displayed as shown below. Total hours represents the total time that the engine was running. ID represents the firmware identification. This field typically includes the manufacturer (Twin Tec), model number, program revision and author's initials, and date. Elapsed time is displayed for 10 RPM bands from zero to 9,999 RPM. The utility also displays the maximum engine RPM, time at the RPM limit (in seconds for better resolution) and the number of engine starts. All this data can be printed to provide a permanent record. The data stored in the module for maximum engine RPM and time at the RPM limit  can be cleared. All other elapsed time and engine starts data is permanent. 

Any historical diagnostic codes logged by the VRFI are listed along with the number of trips (engine start cycles) since the individual code was last logged. The software can also clear diagnostic codes. 

 

Operating Statistics Data

 

The elapsed time data in the various RPM bands can be displayed in the form of a histogram chart by clicking on the Histogram button. Clicking on this button causes the chart shown below  to appear. Color coding of the bars helps to interpret the data. The idle RPM band is blue, normal operating RPM bands are green and high RPM bands are yellow and red. The chart is automatically scaled for best display.
