Question EMERGENCY! Need Help! Anybody Know Where There's a Spare ECU?

~

Anybody know where there is a spare ECU?

Normally I would post this only as a "Wanted to Buy" item in the "Wanted" section, but this is a bit more urgent situation than that.

I need to help a friend find a USA-spec Super Tenere ECU *RIGHT NOW*. Yamaha says they are back-ordered until mid-July or so, and that's just not quick enough. I seem to recall there being a couple of folks out there on the board who had crashed and totaled their S-10's... Anybody out there remember those folks? Does anyone know what happened to the bikes and/or salvage from them?

Better yet, does anyone know of a dealer that might have a new one on the shelf somewhere?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Dallara

There was one on ebay that is gone now. Maybe Mike5000??? If his wasn't totaled
it might be dormant for a while.

Pluric is correct (Fuk...Did I just type that?)

It's "Mikef5000" (I believe), and, from what I remember of his posts, his ST was toast (completely totaled).*



*He was asking about other brands and models.

So you thought you made a mistake once, but you were mistaken?

Thank you for you response.

The ABS switch is just a jumper on the ABS motor fuse on the starter motor solenoid (beside the tank) where people have inserted a switch instead of the fuse. For obvious reasons they have also put a fuse into the new switch wiring.

As for the TCS. The simple answer to your question is yes and no. Yes you can do it but there is a downside to it.
There are 2 other fuses that control the ABS and TCS (they use the same sensors and explicitly linked). They are 2 and 9 in your users manual. 9 is probably the one you need to deal with, the "ABS control unit fuse".
You could insert another switch in there just like the ABS off switch but the downside is that is both fuse 2 and 9 also disable the speedometer. Of course it may be that you only intend to use it off road and the speedo may not be an issue.

IIRC (from 3 years ago !) the ignition needs resetting to get it all back on line.

As an aside, many people that have put in a switch to disable the ABS have found that is is not needed as the system works so well in virtually all conditions. IMHO, the perceived need for an off switch is a hangover from the crap BMW system.

EDIT: The 2013 BMWs now use the Bosch ABS System 9 as is used in the S10, but they use cheaper wheel sensors.

Thanks for the bike suggestions. They are now on my radar.

If I use the Tenere as my Batman, was thinking it would be nice to have a small light Robin around. Not a huge need of course, but got to thinking about it when I saw the 2014 Honda CRF250L for $4,699.

I use a DR 400 and a KLX 250 with a Bill Blue 351cc kit on it. That made it a FUN trail bike.

Mid range is great. Stock they are pretty wimpy. Leave the 250 stickers on it and watch the head scratching.

Did leave me stranded once. That's what inspired the engine rebuild with the big bore.

Another example of the highly sought after "Adventure Sandals"?

I tend to be a little more ATCATT. All The Comfort All The Time. Did sunburn my feet while
the rescue trailer took 6 hours to get there.

Have to give a thumbs up to humanity. I had three trucks pull over and offer me a lift. I had
no way to tell the rescue vehicle where I went so I had to pass on the generous offers.

Later found out the bike that went to get my Jeep and trailer had three flats and ended up
being towed into town and then couldn't find where we had parked in the desert. That was
a long day for everyone.

CAUTION: Tire content

2700 miles and my Pirelli Scorpion Rallys are toast. So if you are looking for a new mileage champion, you would struggle to do worse.

I mostly wore them out on a 2200 mile trip through Colorado and Utah. Some observations:
-Awesome gravel tire. Front end sticks good and the rear lets you get going stupid fast in no time
-Good soft compound for grip in the twisties. I was able to drag my boots fully loaded with probably 60lbs of junk and 220lbs of me.
-The front wears like crap. The cupping got so bad I had to stop in St. George and get it rebalanced which helped for a few hundred miles but the vibes and hopping came back.
-The rear wears fast, but evenly. I never had a problem with the rear other than having basically zero center tread after 2700 miles.

If I had to get a tire for majority dirt I'd take a look at them, but they are not a very good pavement tire mainly due to how bad the front wore. I did spend quite a bit of time doing 80 on the slab which I'm sure didn't help their life. I'm sure a lighter rider with a softer wrist than me could get maybe 4k out of them, but that will have to be for somebody else to find out.

I'm trying a set of K60s on it now.
