BMW Data Logger
I purchased the BMW 2D data logger after rejecting the thought of spending $650 for the IR transmitter/receiver pair for my bike. It will be the best money you spend if you race. It is plug and play (plugs directly into the CANBUS connector under the passenger seat without modification) and VELCROS into the left or right cutout on the tail section. Logs 33 parameters at 100Hz fully GPS referenced as soon as the bike is started. Engine start stop cycles start new files. Download is automatic to a USB flash drive as soon as it is lugged into the unit mounted to the bike (about 3in L x 1.5in W x 1in tall) The analysis software is comprehensive, uses Google maps satellite images to overlay the data onto and allows the automatic segmentation of laps based on selection of the start/end point for the track. Capable of lap by lap analysis (times, shift points, brake points, lean angles, wheel slip, throttle position, ecu throttle, position DTC output etc. etc.
I have attached a screen shot of one of my race lap sessions.
I looked at the thumbnail attached below and it has been so compressed that it is almost unreadable. If someone is interested in some screenshots or information just pm me and I will email some to you.
