Monday, January 19th, 2015

FSR Technology TuneBoss for 2013 Yamaha FZ150i – advanced standalone wireless ECU from Malaysia – RM430

Friday, January 16th, 2015


TuneBoss is an advanced standalone Engine Control Unit (ECU) designed by FSR Technology Sdn Bhd. As most already know, the ECU is the brain of the bike. It controls all critical parameters such as the ignition timing, air-to-fuel mixture (AFR) ratio based on inputs and sensors such as the Throttle Position Sensor and Manifold Sensor.

FSR Technology was founded in 2011 by 2 computer engineers, Farhan and Suffian. The R stands for Research or Racing. These homegrown electronics wizards from Malaysia designed the entire ECU from scratch, from the hardware, the firmware right up to the software. The capabilities of this TuneBoss ECU are going to make tuners and performance enthusiasts very happy.


Most tunable aftermarket ECUs, require a computer connection to be tuned. This usually involves cables (like OBD from cars). FSR Technology is taking things to the next level by having Bluetooth wireless connectivity standard on all their TuneBoss ECUs. This means you can tune it whenever you like by connecting it to your smartphone via Bluetooth without ever dealing with messy cables. (more…)

The first objective of this machine is to ‘boost the feeling of power’ and with that in mind the 135cc engine has been increased to 150cc in capacity to enables it to harness more power. It is also said that the project leader for this Exciter RC 150 is the same project leader who handles the Vixion (FZ150i) development project. Reducing power loss also taken into consideration here with the proven technology that is the DiASil cylinder use to minimise the friction. Also here to minimise the friction is the use of the roller rocker arm that are now being extensively in many small bikes.

Not suprising to us, is the use of FI system to make sure fuel-efficiency for more milease and accurate fuel delivery in high speed for more power when in need.  The power rating of the Exciter RC 150 is 15.4PS @ 8,500RPM with the torque 13.9Nm @ 7,000 RPM. All these numbers beat the 1st generation Yamaha FZ150i which also 150cc FI bikes. (more…)
