The new KTM street legal 500 and 350 are truly "locked" and reportedly the dealer cant even unlock them.. a condition imposed by CARB.

If it is a new bike make sure they pull the fuel pump and ensure it has the new pump... brown topped...or green?

And that they have done the recall work on the fuel filters and the triple trees.

What my dealer told me, and also what I've read is, before any other map can be loaded in, the ecu has to be unlocked (plugged into Husaberg tool, phoned back to HQ, unlocked). Once unlocked, any map can be loaded, and never needs to be unlocked again.

Even though the tool is same as KTM, I don't think any KTM dealer can do it since they won't have a Husaberg account for the phone home. A lot of Husa dealers are also KTM, so that won't be that much of a problem.
