2011 RC8R: Did I Fry the ECU ???
Hello everyone, first real post here.
Picked up an insurance write-off 2011 KTM RC8R with only 5100 miles to make in to a track bike. Bike "was" in perfect running condition and the damage mostly contained to fairings, perfect track candidate.
So I ripped all the fairings off and got in to doing all the emission deletes. Charcoal canister, pretty straight forward and was just going to leave valve in place to trick bike. So SAS valve is a pain to get all the hoses off so I pulled it completely out and decided there was no way it was going back in place. Found the "trick" dongles online and thought well easy it just needs to register current across so I'll just make my own jumper. Well now that I have the real dongles, I see they have a resistor in line.
Immediately after turning the ignition to on the first time, the fuel pump cycled and then bam "CAN Error", No MAP. Ok, some searches and Tune ECU is the answer. Well no matter how many CPU's I try, power to the bike, etc. etc. I can not get the bike to respond. So is it possible that my jumper wire fried my ECU?
Now let's say I did fry the ECU. Luck would have it there is a 2011 ECU on Ebay right now. Will it simply be plug and play at that point? Or is there underlying programming that needs to tie it to the bike.
Besides the EBAY route, anyone else have any suggestions to fix the ECU or someone who may be able to?
Thanks for the help.
