I can confirm that the ECU on the US bikes compared to the UK bikes is so different that the closed loop area can be removed on US bikes but not on UK bikes.

This means that on US bikes the O2 sensors can be removed after the flash but not on UK bikes. This explains why Power Commander supply an O2 optimiser module with their PCV when supplied to UK bikes.

If you are interested and have not yet fallen asleep, there is a bit more here:http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/ind...1331#msg121331 See post #27

I know the ECU's were different but I did not know how much.

Old, (but a bit less confused,) Git Ray

PS, sorry to take this thread off track ;)
So the Yanks finally got a win?
Actually, I guess that depends on how you look at it.

As for taking the thread off track, you mean because you actually posted a Super Tenere post? :)

Thanks for the info sir.

It's a 9 hour drive from my house but no biggie. This was easily the the nicest dealer I've ever delt with.

I got it from Miller's Yamaha in Lamont Furnace, PA. I dealt directly with Ernie Miller who is the general manager. Great guy and the whole transacton couldn't have been any easier. I'm so excited! I will post pics once I have it.

Now to start figuring out what farkles and mods to do first...let the fun begin.

Did you hit Peachins for a few burgers?

Don't worry, it was just some fun with PhotoShop. Too much time on my hands, and it's fricken snowing here.

He got a tremdous laugh out of it, thought I would share.
His bike was near new in the "un touched" picture.
