new 840, HELP with MSD update

Okay... I've just installed my 840 kit. I've got everything plugged in, and I'm ready to turn the key.

Only thing is, how do I update the settings in my MSD from the original 750 maps to the 840 maps I got from Muzzy?

I can't start it, because I need to change the curves first.

If I just turn the key on to Accessory it doesn't turn the MSD on. (the software on my laptop doesn't recognize the MSD to connect).

So, how do you program your MSD?

You have a hunterworks MSD right? I assume he has curves that will help you out.

Sorry dude, but you've missed the question.

I have curves already, I just don't know how to change them from the HW map to the Muzzy maps I got with the kit.

When you plug the MSD into the laptop, you have to "connect" them. My laptop isn't recognizing the MSD..... & I can't start the engine until I've changed the map.

I'm looking for advise from someone that's done this before.

Thanks though.

This is going to sound like a smart ass answer but call Muzzy, they gave you the maps.

Or call me.

The Teryx MSD should connect easily. Once you have the software open and the MSD plugged in, go to top of screen, click on connect, window pops up and your MSD should show up in blue, then click connect again. If it does, the go to file, then open navigate to the file Muzzy sent you, click it then click open. IT will ask you if you want to send it, click yes or whatever I can't remember then it shows transfer complete. Turn screw to right number and go.

Also, don't trust a map for a engine kit, you need to back it up with a air/fuel ratio gauge.

Either that or your not getting a good connection to the msd via the usb, maybe some gunk in the msd port? Once u plug the msd in to pc and u have msd software up it should reconize msd connect right away, whether machine is on or not, msd doesnt even have to be connected to rex for that matter

So, does the key need to be on to connect?

I have the MSD software loaded. I've connected to the MSD in the passed just to see how it worked and it worked just fine.

Maybe there is some crap in the plug... That's what I'll try today.

I do have an A/F meter that I bought from you Todd. Maybe I give you a call today.

Thanks for the input guys.

I know when it comes to the programing on the MSD, I would trust Todd as much as anyone, he worked with MSD on the proto type for months before they released it to the users, If Todd can't help you on this nobody can, there are alot of good maps out there with other venders but Todd was working with the MSD before most ever got there hands on one.

Unfortunately I've found its difficult to get some laptops to recognize the MSD...(Usually older ones) and I haven't quite figured out if its the software causing it or if the USB ports simply aren't powerful enough to run the MSD.


Depending on the OS you're using you can... Right click "my computer" then click "manage" -> device manager -> Look and see if there is anything with a "?" by it with MSD. This will show you if the usb port is even recognizing the MSD.

If it is there you can double click on it and then click update drivers and see if it will automatically fix it for you.

Just some things to try and if that doesn't work you'll likely have to try a different laptop.

Also you don't have to be afraid to crank your bike as it will run fine... Just won't be near as fast.
