    They said: If you modify an .xpr file in tunerpro and then click the “save bin” button it will stay .xpr. Don’t click “save bin as”
    It works.
    On PC, I saved a copy of my stock EEPROM (xpr) in a different folder, reamed it adding 'to be mod', open and modified with tunerpro, saved with "save bin" (it stay xpr), renamed it changing 'to be mod' in 'mod1', moved back to original folder, sended by mail to the smartphone, downloaded there in the right folder, and I got it.

    I hope this can help some of us willing to have a better bike without throwing away bags of money changing half of the bike, because if just in case...
    This is of course not to say than anybody should work on without knowing what is doing to his engine, but for the rest if is not broken I don't like to change it...

    Awesome thanks for letting us know!

    Hi gunter,

    I am not expert at all in this matters so I'm always afraid to damage something.
    I ear that how both files are write is the same, but I also read somewhere that if you rename bin in xpr and try to load it on ECM you are going to make it usless.
    Of course I can't tell if it is true or not, I just tried to choose the safest way.

    Thanks, Osvaldo

    Hi Gunter,

    excuse me to re-open the tread, but at the right time I could not remember were I read this: "However, DO NOT change a BIN file to an XPR file extension. For instance, do not change a “stockecm_1.bin” file to “stockecm_1.xpr” file. If it is loaded to the ECM, the ECM will be damaged. ". That's why I did not take the short way you told, and that I was aware. It's from https://www.buelltooth.com/uploads/5...inal_draft.pdf Pag.27.
    Of course I'm not the one that can say if it's true or not, but just in case...I took the long way.
    Anyway thank you for you attention.

    Of course you can do as you like. But, just as a side note: I created EcmSpy, I designed the XPR file format and I talked to Mark Mansur how to best integrate Buell's ECM to Tuner Pro. Ask those "internet experts" what they did. And I can safely tell you: there is no "long way" which would make any sense. Simply because these files are not only indentical, they are also meant to be identical. And the easiest way to achieve this is to use them as they are: xpr files.

    Neat. I’ve changed the file name on a few files without issue.
