Software Update...Just Do It!!

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

Software Update...Just Do It!!

Post by Camel Jockey » Thu Feb 21, 2019 5:30 pm

I just got my 2018 GU (8000 miles in the clock) back from a general service at Ural of NE. In addition to replacing a few gaskets and seals, they performed a software update. What a difference! I used to have a slight hesitation at low RPMs. And, it backfired in decel which I attributed to the fact that I have a 2:1 exhaust.

After the software update the hesitation is gone and the backfiring is virtually eliminated.

And, it’s free!! (Obviously I’m still under warranty.)

Stock map or Off-Road map? Sounds like switch to Off-Road kind of difference, which mine got before it even hit pavement for the first time. :D

I already had the off-road map installed prior to delivery . So, this update is something else.

I’ve asked the dealer for details so I can share with the collective.

Anyone know if this was really an update, or just a reprogram to off road from on road?

Just confirmed with UralNE that the software update was a new EFI map released by IMZ Ural.

I had off-road already installed.

For completeness, they also synced the throttle bodies.

Off-road is already a map. So is this a new version of the off-road map, or a new on-road map?

There's more to the story here yet.

Hi, Mike.
Can you comment on the gaskets and seals that were replaced? Just wondering if I need to monitor the same on my 2018 GU. Thanks.

May I ask who told you it was a new updated off-road map?

I just spoke to Jason Tuesday, and he didn't mention it, but I didn't ask. This has come up before, and it was confirmed there were only the EPA, and off road maps.
Anything is possible, but I'll remain skeptical until confirmed by the folks at IMWA.

Its been confirmed. There was the original EPA map. Shortly after 2014s were released, then there was OR1.01. Then in October/November 2015 OR1.02 was released. Then in 2017, OR1.03 was released That is the last and final map for ElectroJet EFI ECUs for Ural.
