Thumb FREE Updated ECUnleashed Flash for USA Bikes!!!

~


Just got the following this morning from Ed Cook at "AF-1 Racing" in New Braunfels, TX. Ed is who did my ECUnleashed re-flash, and his shop is an authorized ECUnleashed dealer.

I think you guys here in the USA with an ECUnleashed re-flash might find it interesting... Note, you've got to act quick!


Quote:
"They updated the Tenere flash, you have to send it in to them.

You can post this up on the forums.

As of April 15th, they have confirmed a GEN 2 flash (no specifics on exactly how its better). To get updated, the ECUs have to go directly to them. All future new ones AF1 Racing does will be the Gen 2 flash.

“Yes, we do have a great gen 2 flash for the xt1200. We will have them send there ECU's directly to us and we will reflash them free of charge. All the customer has to pay is return shipping. $25 domestic $50 international. Note: Starting May 1, this service will incur a $100 flat charge. Should be back in the mail within 2 days of receiving it. “
Include all your info just like the first time you got flashed…year, make, model, VIN, gas type, and all your mods listed.

Put “UPDATE TO GEN2 FLASH” in your notes, and include your credit card payment info, check or money order in the box with your ECU.

ECUnleashed Tuning Technology llc
8209 Foothill Blvd #A122
Sunland, CA 91040"
Please note, this is all the information I have at this time... You know what I know, and if you have any questions you might want to contact ECUnleashed directly (http://ecunleashed.com/), and right away.

Just FYI...

Thanks for the heads up Dallara!

Very interesting...I could speculate about a whole list of reasons they are doing this, but I won't. I will get the Gen 2 flash updated very soon though.

I just got the factory bag. I've never purchased the factory tank bag for one of my bikes before.

Fits absolutely perfectly. Has a plastic clasp at top of tank, magnets in center running down spine and a plastic removal strap/clasp down by the seat.

Not to burst your bubble. I got rid of my OEM bag. Slides all over off road.
Thing was always hanging off the side of the tank at the worst time.
No problem at all on the slab. With the ditty bag on the back it felt a little
crowded moving up on it too.

I know. little Mary sunshine. Sorry.

I'll give this one a try and then give up on it and buy the WolfmanJack special. Does yours have magnets or no?

No magnets. Just a rubberized bottom and four straps. Keep in mind it was some
pretty rough off road. I put a bungee cord on it and that helped.

The ones that mount on the gas cap ring seem popular too.

I wouldn't use one if you ride in dusty conditions... DAMHIK

Mine ended up bungied on the back of my wife's DR for the remainder of a dual sport ride we were on, just barely got it released on day two or I would have been screwed for getting gas in my tank.

Any of you guys know where I can get these pins cheaper?



I can get 50 of them on Amazon for $20 +S&H. I only need three.

They're the molex pins needed to use in the special 3 and 4 pin auxiliary connectors on the bike. I purchased the 3 pin connector but it didn't come with the pins.

Try your shop if your on good terms with the service manager or a tech.
My shop gave me some, just to get me by. I paid them back later..

Absolutely the greatest place to get any Japanese electrical supplies is from Jim Davis at Eastern Beaver - http://www.easternbeaver.com/

He's the best, and once you become a customer you will be one for life!

I just managed to find this place through some inadvertent searching right after my post.

Still sucks as I need to purchase over $20 so the shipping isn't $100 for a $1 part

Already tried Radio Shack. They only carry the tube type molex found on PC's.
