Video: RIVA MaptunerX Dealer Service Application

Tuning 4-stroke personal watercraft has come a long way in a very short time. In little over a decade, this industry has gone from completely excising the factory ECU (and a portion of the wiring harness) and replacing it with an aftermarket engine management computer costing several thousands of dollars, to hand-held plug-in-play tuners that are comparable to a smartphone in both size and ease of use.

RIVA Racing has of course, been at the forefront of this effort, first supplying racers and performance enthusiasts with the aforementioned off-brand ECUs, to offering a vast catalog of engine maps, software and eventually, it’s MaptunerX hand-held tuner. This single device has flipped the industry on its ear, removing the need for customers to remove and ship off their ECU to be manually reprogrammed, and shipped back.

Today, the process is done within minutes and within the comfort of your own home garage. Building upon this industry-changing hardware, RIVA is taking the MaptunerX another step forward with its newly announced Dealer Service Application. This subscription software enables the home mechanic, the small performance/maintenance shop and the high volume dealership to perform all of the functions of factory programs all in one tuner.

Whether it’s a Yamaha, Kawasaki, Polaris or Sea-Doo, the Dealer Service App-equipped MaptunerX can perform all of the services with less time, no special manufacturer licensing, or a clunky laptop. Equally, there’s no restriction on how many vehicles can be serviced; if you’ve purchased the MaptunerX and the Dealer Service Application you’re in business. Below we’ve included all of the features and functionalities.
