and the best bit is......you need a Suzuki factory security "dongle" for the factory scan tool to be able to access any "critical" functions that are adjustable, and to do firmware updates. These cost (a lot), are available to authorised dealer service agents only and only last a year.
This means sensor mappings are not user adjustable with over the counter pc software. You can change a few minor things and the "smarter" tools can allow you to code keys etc but not to adjust engine performance items. You can certainly change things like disabling the ESP but you can't save that "disabled" state to memory.
Suzuki seem to have a better security setup on their ECU's than the likes of Subaru and Nissan, probably because Suzuki have never been a real "performance" engine and the hackers haven't bothered to crack it.
