This program allows changing of the V4 Spark module settings via USB.
The module must be connected to the USB before the configuration program is opened.
This can be done with the module on or off the bike (very early OEM box versions with
a yellow circuit board must be done on the bike). On OEM box versions, set all
the DIP switches to OFF.
This only runs on windows.
Older units will need their firmware updated.
If the "Read from Module" does not populate the fields with numbers, then you probably
have an older firmware.
Model - the module will *not* generate the expected timing
advance if this does not match the engine.
Rev-limiter - enter a value 1375-13000 RPM, or 0 to disable.
Original big modules (with red plug) have a rev-limiter, small do not.
Dwell Time - Stock is 4.0ms (6.0ms for 700). The module automatically
extends the dwell time at lower & cranking RPM's.
Individual COP Dwell - (module must have firmware version "e" or
later, or this will not be displayed) check this to reduce the low RPM dwell extention
and lower the coil temperature. Allows elemination of the previously called
for ballast resistors.
Advance Start @ RPM - when timing begins to advance.
Max value is 13000 RPM. Full Advance RPM will be adjusted if advance rate is
too high. Note: when reading back from the module, this value may be slightly
different than what was saved.
Full Advance @ RPM - when timing reaches full advance. Enter
a value from 1375-13000 RPM. Start Advance RPM will be adjusted if advance rate
is too high.
Full Advance - degrees Before Top Dead Center. Enter a value
between Idle Advance and 37, in 0.5 degree increments. Maximum advance value
is limited by the position of pulse generator and front edge of "bump" on starter
Idle Advance - degrees Before Top Dead Center. This value
is fixed and display only. It is set by Application as it is fixed
by the position of pulse generator and back edge of "bump" on starter clutch.
Pulse Generator Feedback - display value that is normally 130 +/-
1 when the engine is stopped (fluctuates all around when running). If it is
less than 129 or greater than 131, then recommended to check the pulse generator resistance
with a meter.
Download - V4
Config.zip. Uncompress, and run setup.exe located in the Package folder.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version, go into windows Add/Remove Programs
and unistall the existing one first.
This driver is also needed for Win
XP/7/8 - no driver needed for 10. Download and uncompress -
Spark inf J.zip - for firmware version "j" and later
Spark inf.zip - for firmware version "i" and earilier
When connecting the V4spark module for the first time -
gives the "Found New Hardware" wizard
Select "No, not
this time" on first screen asking to connect to Windows Update
from a list or specific location (Advanced)" on next screen
Select "Search for
the best driver in these locations", and "Include this locations in the search".
Browse to select
the V4 Spark inf folder you downloaded/uncompressed.
Anyway" to the "not passed windows logo testing" warning
Windows gives the "Installing device driver sofware" notification
Wait for windows to give "No driver found" or select skip, then
Navigate by clicking: Start Menu->Devices and Printers-> Unspecified:
V4-spark->Hardware tab->Properties->Change Settings->Update Driver...
Select "Browse my computer for driver software", browse to select
the V4 Spark inf folder you downloaded/uncompressed, and select next
Select "Install this driver software anyway" to the "can't verify
