Diagnosing "You do not have a Race Tools Key"

To activate any of the Race Tools options (eg. Quickshifter, Autoblipper, etc), you must have purchased a Race Tools package specific for your model of bike.  A Race Tools Package includes the Race Tools Hardware like Quickshifter etc, and a software Key (license).  If you do not have a Race Tools Key, then you will not be able to activate any of the Race Tools options in the WRT software.

If you open a new bin file in WRT it will have Race Tools turned off by default and no Race Tools Key is needed to write this bin file to the ECU.  

If you then turn on Race Tools by activating any of the features (Quickshifter, Pit Speed limiter, etc) in WRT the bin file will now be PERMANENTLY flagged as having Race Tools activated and you will not be able to write it to the ECU without owning/using a dedicated Race Tools Key.  Even if you then turn off Race Tools in WRT by disabling Quickshifter etc, the bin file will still be flagged as requiring a Race Tools Key. 

If you have already been able to write to the ECU with Race Tools activated, then your Race Tools Key is now locked to this ECU. You can rewrite the ECU as many times as you want with Race Tools turned on or off. 

These are the possible reasons this error may appear: 

  • If  you do not have a Race Tools Key but you have activated in the WRT software as described above, you will need to open a new bin file to reset the Race Tools flag.
  • If you have received an ECU with Race Tools that was written previously by another tuner, but have not written to this ECU before, you will need to click READ ECU, then use Tools > Request Key Transfer and then Open a Support Ticket
    • Writing over an ECU that has Race Tools activated by another user without requesting a key transfer will erase the Race Tools key in the ECU. 
  • If you have purchased a Race Tools package including Race Tools Key, but you have not been able to write to the ECU at all, and are seeing the Race Tools Key error message, then please Open a Support Ticket.
  • If you see the error message "You do not have a Race Tools Key.." and you have already been able to write to the ECU with Race Tools previously, then it is possible the software is not able to recognize the ECU. This can happen if you have a failed or partial write.
    • In this case please open a support ticket explaining the issue, and then READ ECU, and click Tools > Send Bin File to Woolich Racing.

Do not just turn off Race Tools and attempt to write to the ECU again, as this will write over the existing Key we need from your ECU Readout.  In this case we will not be able to replace the key and you will be required to purchase a new Race Tools Key.
