We I think the first place to start is at the beginning--meaning setting it up. I have outlined the first steps below so someone can at least get properly started.
Note: if anyone finds an error, pm me and I will edit the post. I'd like avoid bickering on the thread.
Steps to get started with your datalogger if you are riding on track:
1) Install datalogger on bike. Lift off passenger seat and plug in per manual. One plug and you're done.
2) Install software and check for updates TWICE on computer.
3) Plug in a "FAT 32" USB drive, then turn bike's key on. (Drive's "properties" will say if it is FAT 32).
4) Light solid when reading/writing, remove when steadily flashing. May read/write twice.
5) Put USB drive in computer, open USB and there should be a file on it now: "2D-Datarecording".
6) Open BMW HP Race Datalogger program. Click "Import log data"--> check "Start HP USB Stick Scanner with Windows" and also check "Start Analysis automatically after log data import" unless you specifically don't want to. Also check "Race track" at the bottom of the page.
7) Go to OPTIONS-->DATA NAME-->check box for "from date and time".
8) Go to OPTIONS-->HP RACE DATALOGGER SETTINGS-->RENAME HP RACE DATALOGGER--> then name it e.g. "Billy's Bike".
9) Go to OPTIONS-->SET RACE MODE.
10) Go to OPTIONS-->CHANGING HP RACE DATALOGGER DEVICE SOFTWARE-->then choose your year model. Each model year shows with an alternate choice of 2D extension box. Don't check 2D extension box unless you have installed an additional box bought separately from 2D that is used to connect an exhaust sensor and other accessories.
11) Remove the USB drive and bring to your bike--but don't turn the bike on.
12) With the bike turned off, plug in the USB drive, THEN turn the bike on.
13) Wait for the solid light to end and you see steady blinking.
14) Pull USB out, does not matter if bike is on or off. Set it aside.
15) Go ride, come in, shut bike off.
16) Put USB into bike, turn it on, wait until light goes from solid to steadily blinking, remove USB, turn bike off.
17) Memory of the bike's datalogger has been transferred to the USB. Datalogger memory has now been cleared--it's on the stick now.
18) Take to computer, open program and data will upload automatically, depending on settings. If no auto upload, "import log data".
