Why do I need to buy a Bin File Definition? I already own the Bin File in my ECU.

The 'Bin File' and the 'Bin File Definition' are two very different types of files and the terms are sometimes misused which can lead to some confusion about what they are and how they are used.

A Bin File (or binary file) is written to every ECU and contains all of the information needed to control the specific vehicle that the ECU was manufactured for.  The bin file contains maps for eg. fueling, ignition timing etc and the location of these maps and other information is usually different for ECUs from different manufacturer/model/years but can also be different for ECUs from the same model of bike.

The Bin File Definition is a file which details where all of the specific information for the ECU is stored.  The Bin File Definition then contains all the information about the location of specific maps, limiters, etc and makes it possible to write to a specific ECU correctly.  It is not possible to write to an ECU without having the corresponding Bin File Definition available also.

When you make a purchase for your specific model of motorcycle you are not actually purchasing the Bin File, you are purchasing the Bin File Definition. The Bin File Definition is used within the Woolich Racing Tuned software, and it provides access for maps and settings allowing you to easily edit the Bin File within the Woolich Racing Tuned software. Without the Bin File Definition, you are not able to edit the bin file or make any changes to the ECU in your bike.
