As long as your sidestand switch is disconnected.
The ECU is junk? Umm... if that's so, why are so many people pointing us prospective buyers towards the UCE bikes?
That's a good question.The junk ECU on my bike starts it without frinkeling with the choke or tickler even on a cold morning.It is giving me fairly consistent fuel mileage of 69-79 mpg.It self adjusts itself for altitude when I ride around at 1200 feet or 8000 feet and anywhere in between.It seems to know the engine temperature and adjusts the fuel/air ratio to keep from fouling my spark plug.It helps the engine put out over 6 horsepower more than a Iron Barrel or AVL without hesitation when the throttle is snapped open quickly and the engine is allowed to rev.Pretty crappy if you ask me.
Couple of things here...The IDM ECU is open loop and has been remapped by the factory several times. The export ECU is closed loop and has had no such issues. Remember that some of our members are in India and they do have legitimate problems.I agree with Arizoni, my bike starts first time every time regardless of ambient and engine temps and never runs rich or lean. It runs and responds smoothly in all riding conditions I've been in on the street. That kind of reliability and consistency may not qualify as 'performance' in everyone's opinion but it's what most riders need most of the time.Does it get the best performance from the rest of the motor? No, it's programmed for a compromise of usability and meeting emissions standards. Can it be easily remapped? No. Is it, along with the fuel injector, up to the task of easily providing gobs more fuel that may be needed by a highly modified engine. Don't think so.The stock ECU for export models seems to do a very good job of running the stock bike/engine for most riding conditions a rider would experience. I only recall reading about one failure. Just because it won't easily tend to the care and feeding of the hot rodded engine you dream up doesn't make it junk.Scott
..........The people here in the US are in a different situation, and they like what they are getting from the export ECU/EFI..........
