Yup, you're right, I made the assumption that the "misfire detection system" is the only way they could detect detonation in the absence of an acoustic-style knock sensor, which it doesn't have. And no, knock and misfire are not the same. I guessed (assumed) the same as Penner that bad enough detonation could alter the engine firing enough to be detected. *shrugs*, my bad.So crankshaft position sensors double as knock sensors now?
And a misfire is the same thing as knock?
And loading a map and not resetting adaptives is adapting the crankshaft position sensor?
And resetting adaptations means having to recalibrate the crank position sensor?
I am HUGELY confused.
On the second half of your confusion (the rabbit hole I went down by experience), the crankshaft position sensor is "adapted" from the factory and shouldn't need to be messed with. When loading a tune, if you wanted to, you could do the "12-minute idle" adaption. From the manual:
"1. Make sure the engine is cold.
2. WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTTLE, start the engine and allow it to warm up until the cooling fan comes on.
3. Leave the engine to idle for a further 12 minutes." (so warm-up plus 12 minutes total)
When you force reset the adaptions (what I did) it resets fuelling, throttle, twist grip and crankshaft position. And while it will readapt fuelling when running, and throttle and twist grip adaptions when you go through the reset cruise control procedure, you have to force the crankshaft position re-adaption using software. So you should just load the map and ride.
