ecu flash on 2008 Honda cbr1000rr
« on: 04/15/14 12:29PM »
Does any one know if getting my ecu flashed will help out in correcting my miles and rpms to read right?  I have a chain and sprocket and my bike reads more miles then it should and tells me I'm going 100 when in reality om barely doing around 75.

I don't think there is a way to modify the stock ecu in that way.  Normally an aftermarket device is needed.  Look into the Speedohealer, or a similar product.

The speed is generally measured off the front tire anyway, so an ECU flash probably wouldn't help.

Not on modern sportbikes.  The SV was one of the few remaining sportbikes to measure speed off the front wheel.

Ok thanks. I found a shop that is selling me a speedo healer for 80. Does any one know where I can get my ecu flashed? My bike Is running to lean and I heard ecu flashed is better then buying a power commander. I just can't find anyone that will do it for me.

Call R-Cal racing in HB. If there is something that can be done, they will be able to. Or at least explain your options in this case.

IF your bike is running lean you need a power commander, not a reflash.

I believe Cycle Mall might be able to Flash and custom tune your stock ECU, which renders a power commander pointless.  I would look into a Woolich Racing log box if you are serious about getting your bike tuned to the T and make some adjustments yourself.

I think Ivan makes some good points, RedRider I would suggest you read the section I linked to above.  I would strongly recommend against getting a woolichracing box and blowing your bike up (really easy to do)

I read it and I think he makes some valid point and exaggerations, he's running a business do it your selfers don't make him money.  I agree tuning your bikes ECU is not for everyone, neither is riding a motorcycle for that matter.  If your willing to take the time to learn and understand what all the data means and know what your trying to achieve an unlocked ECU and and log box is without a doubt really the only way to get your bike to run how "You" wan't it to not how the shop tuning it thinks it should run.  My coworker has tuned his GSXR750 with an unlocked ECU and log box and IMO it delivers power better than any bike I have ever ridden.  Was it easy, no even close.  He spent countless hours tuning it but the result he achieved were worth it.  Before the unlocked he had tried both PCIII and Bazzaz, neither of which achieved the results he wanted or fixed the issues he was trying to fix.
