Unleash the full potential your K67 BMW S1000RR with the XWorks flash ECU calibration.



What is XWorks? XWorks is the BMW's engineering code name from a testing session of one of the M bikes at the Portimao race track in 2018. This ECU flash is derivative of this coding which was used on the test bike.

What does the XWorks ECU Flash do? The US spec 2020 BMW S1000RR is very restricted in 2nd and 3rd gears, and this has been the major complaint of most riders. The restriction is caused by the throttle by wire system of the new S1000RR not applying above a certain percentage of throttle and opening up the throttle blades accordingly. So in short form, when the rider twists the throttle above a certain point, the ecu electronically restricts the amount of throttle that is actually being applied.

The XWorks ecu calibration removes these restrictions so that the throttle blades respond instantly to the throttle being twisted. Furthermore the Xworks ECU calibration has been tuned to maximize power gains from a full exhaust system and a performance air filter.

XWorks ecu calibration will also remove the indicated 186mph limit shown on the speedometer.

XWorks ECU calibration is intended for offroad competition use only!

What is needed for the XWorks ECU Flash? In order to complete the XWorks ECU flash, your ECU, Igntion and the Key are needed.

Why is the ignition and key are needed? In order to be able to 100% verify all parameters of the calibration, the ignition and key must be present. Without the key and ignition being present, there is no way to verify that the calibration is perfect.

What is included with the XWorks ECU Flash?
- The initial calibration to remove restrictions and install the XWorks coding.
- Two future updates. These can be either updates to the coding as they are released, or it could be used to return the ECU back to stock coding. For coding updates, your ignition will no longer be needed, only your ECU will be needed.
- Shipping labels for the initial calibration are included. This means you will have to only take your ECU and ignition with key to a FedEX location, and use the provided shipping label to ship out your hardware. Shipping labels are not included for the update services.

How much?
- The XWorks ECU Calibration is $699.95 USD.
- XWorks ECU calibration can be purchased directly through our website: https://www.motomillion.com/products/xworks-ecu-flash-calibration-for-k67-bmw-s1000rr-2019-2020

How long does it take? All inbound and outbound shipping services are provided by FedEX Express and included in the total price. Once you drop your hardware off to the FedEX location, it will take 2 business days for the hardware to be delivered. The XWorks ECU calibration will be performed in 1-2 business days after receiving your hardware and then it will be shipped back to you with FedEX Express 2-Day service. So in total the turn around time for this service should be expected to be 5 to 6 business days.

Shipping labels are only included for customers located within USA.

Overnight shipping and expedited calibration options are provided upon request, potentially reducing the turn around time to 3 business days. (Please call us in order to have this request processed).

A FedEX Express shipping box will be provided to you at the FedEX location at no cost. Please ensure that your hardware is securely packaged. The packaging is your responsibility.

For any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

BMW_388 is happy to service and support MotoMillion customer base. The first customer is serviced and shipped on FedEx today. I am looking forward to the positive results that some ECU testing is about to occur with this customer. ECU A against ECU B. Something only BMW_388 ( me :eek: ) specialize in doing.

Reporting from the testing we did this weekend.

We wanted to put the XWorks ECU flash to the test. To be able to see the true differences, ideally you would want to keep as much variables as constant as possible. Our overall goal was to have an extremely transparent test showing the real results without fluffing up any numbers, and to provide unbiased hard data to the consumer.

To make the results as credible as possible, we wanted to be able to have one bike, dyno it back to back with the stock ECU and flashed ECU, which would give us the true results of the flash. It is straight forward in theory, but a bit more complicated to achieve, since ECU's are married to the key of the bike.

As you know, the variables could be; the bike, the dyno, fuel, weather etc... With the cooperation of XWorks we were able to make this possible this past Sunday. XWorks was able to provide us a flashed ECU along with the stock ECU that worked on the same bike. This was great news, and we were just as curious as anyone else would be to see the results in a fair environment that would give you concrete and credible results.

This past Sunday, we had a 2020 S1000RR M package on the dyno at Ducati Detroit. The bike only had the Akrapovic Titanium GP Shorty full system.

The first graph we will post is comparing the two runs done in second gear (Just waiting to get the other graphs emailed to us, once we have it, we will post them up as well.) Both runs were done with the rear wheel inflated at 40psi, using 93 octane premium pump gas. Same bike, same conditions, dyno runs being performed within minutes of one an other.

As you know dyno rooms get hot when doing runs after runs. To give the stock ecu the advantage, the first pulls were all done on the stock ecu, then the XWorks flashed ECU was swapped over to do the runs on the flashed ecu.

The red line is showing the stock ECU's pull, and the green line the XWorks flashed ECU. As you can see the differences in both pulls in the lower RPM range is huge, and there are gains throughout the rev range. The highest difference in power between those two lines was a staggering 44hp.

You are welcome. Not to forget, @BMW_388 also deserves some credit here for being open to have such a transparent and open comparison. I guess no that we have the real data out, we can see why he didn't even hesitate. We also want to thank him for sticking to the tight deadline, all of this literally was planned over a few days, usually when there are this many parties involved it is hard to get something going so quickly, but I guess all the stars aligned this time for us.

The Xworks graph looks pretty linear to me. Great work @BMW_388.

Surprised the bike only made 185HP.

Any graphs for torque?
You know it's completely dyno dependent. I know of a completely stock bike the made 205 on a dyno in Sacramento.

Thats lowest the dyno graphs ive seen online for the 2020. 185whp. I know dyno varies with each machine. What matters is the stock baseline and the increase post flash. ??

Dyno numbers are so subjective these days. It totally depends on the calibration and the offset used.

185HP is also the lowest I have seen from my ECU work. However, I have an independent dyno screen shot that shows 206HP with the XWORKS.

In my opinion, it is about 194-196HP at the rear tire. There is no magic 12-15HP sitting there on the table from BMWAG waiting on the ECU work to grab it on the top end at about 10k to 14k. Down in the lower area, yes, there is some power to be found.

Its like you indicate V3rbatim, there is the base which in this case is the stock 2020 ECU, and then the XWORKS installed right behind it. Same dyno, same bike. My sig on here for months upon months. Clone ECU's are going to rule the world. ECU A against ECU B on the same dyno for real time comparison.

My clone skills are 100%. Someone tried to say the VIN was a ghost, the VIN was from a stolen bike, the VIN was all zero's. The ECU is 100% back to back. If you buy a clone ECU the MPU program count is going to be 1. I dont have used BMSO ECU's. I have only brand new virgin ones that I program upon order and I have your stock ECU to read and clone.

With a full system and a flash I'm hoping 200hp min to the rear wheel on any dyno :wink2:
My R1 make 182HP on a conservative dyno, main reason why I'm surprised.

Waiting on the graphs to be emailed.

It made 191.5rwhp. The bike that was used for the testing has been on the same dyno many times and the numbers we attained this past Sunday were all consistent.

This graph is in 2nd gear, and the dyno used was a Dynojet 250. The get the true hp numbers you need to be dyno at the closest 1:1 ratio, which usually is 4th or 5th gear.

Ryan Jones, a Motomillion sponsored rider racing a 2020 S1000RR with the XWorks flashed ECU, and a few of Alpha Racing goodies plced 1st in class by a margin of 3.622 seconds.

Ryan is not a member on here but he has mentioned that the XWorks flash is one of the key factors to his success.

As you can see on the dyno graph posted, the mid range power is dramatically increased, but further more there are more advancements in terms of traction control and wheelie control when it comes to the XWorks flash, which makes all the difference on a road course.

Congratulations to Ryan Jones on his victory. We will keep you posted as he racks up more podiums and wins.

Feedback from a fellow forum member who is using the XWorks calibration on his 2020 S1000RR. Sounds like he had a blast at COTA!

On I different note I just got back from a track day at COTA. First off I cant thank XWorks enough. Not only does he have a great flash but is always ready to help with any issue that you may have( I had none). My bike was by far the fastest bike down the back straight consistantly over 2 days. I never had to draft another rider to pass and was never passed down either. I had a buddy try draft me on his 18 S1000RR but couldn't. I am really happy with my service I received from XWorks and would happily recommend them for your flash needs.

I don’t remember seeing a 2020 in Level 3 at COTA all weekend? I guess I’ll look through the pics, I may have missed it. Plenty of super fast bikes in level 3.

Justin ran in 2B coming from his 2013 GSXR1000 and was still getting adjusted with the new 2020 BMW S1000RR with its XWORKS ECU. The bike only had 450 miles on it.

Ah, got it. Bold statement about being “the fastest down the back straight” when not in the top group as there were plenty of very fast bikes in our group.

Did see that bike next to the tire guy. Does he have the carbon wheels? I looked at it, but can’t remember. A beautiful bike indeed!

I rode level 2A and B and was never passed down the back straight. Didn't need to draft another bike to get around someone. Im not saying that I'm the fastest guy at cota I'm just saying that my bike with the XWorks flash was super fast down the straight.Ty Howard was ment to throw a leg over the bike but he got busy and it never happened. My brother(Motobros) rode my bike and I can absolutely say is one of the fastest guys at cota rode my bike and said that it was the fastest bike he has ever ridden.
