Ah hah...another item I'll never use. But, perhaps I can put it to good use.

Any chance that's a standard connector like the accessory light and heated grip circuits under the tank? If so - perhaps that's another existing circuit that can be put to use elsewhere...
No you need to leave the shorting plug fitted otherwise bike no run.

Does the 'torque' android app or something similar work with this setup? Very cool, now just a need tuneECU app so maps can be loaded and adjustments made anywhere anytime

Anyone upgrade TuneECU from 2.0 to 2.1 yet? Was it necessary to uninstall 2.0, or does 2.1 go right over the top?

And I also see that the new Explorer is not TuneECU compatible. Wonder what is up with that.

Makes sense to me, since the fly by wire stuff will no doubt need computer bits added. That's a major generation of ECU / BCU... I hope our ECU's haven't become the "old ones" no longer getting the developers' attention...

Guilty. Then again, I haven't seen my manual since I got the bike

They might end up being the "good old ones," the only ones you can adjust yourself while all the new stuff is locked down.

Brake bleed help needed!

I just finished changing out all my brake lines and have some questions about bleeding the brakes. I am aware that either a dealer or the "dealer tool" software is needed to bleed the ABS module, however in the "dealer tool" instructions it says to bleed the normal way prior to activating the ABS module servos. My question is: how can I get fluid into the lines in order to complete this first step bleed? There is too much air in the lines to bleed the normal way. I tried to reverse bleed them by pumping fluid in from the caliper with a syringe but couldnt push anything in. Does the ABS module cause a flow block to the master cylinder?

No, the ABS is a separate and parallel circuit. When it activates, the manual circuit is disabled (blocked) and the ABS controller takes over on the ABS circuit.

It is likely that when you attempted to reverse bleed, that the ports in the master cylinder were blocked. You will need to "tickle" the brake lever if attempting to reverse bleed, so that you open up the ports in the master cylinder and allow the fluid to move to the reservoir.

The port to the master cylinder is open when the lever is out. Rather than force fluid in from the caliper you should have used something like a Mity Vac to suck fluid from the MC. When you do this you have to keep an eye on fluid level in the MC so you don't drain it dry.
The fact that you couldn't force fluid from the caliper to the MC might have something to do with the ABS circuit???

I have always had success with the reverse bleed method in the past. I used a vacuum the second time around with no luck again. I even took apart each banjo connection to check for line blockages. The lines were fine. I re-bled the MC and tried the normal way and still nothing. I'm clueless!

I was having the same issue when bleeding the brakes on my fjr, turns out the bleed port was clogged with something. I could take the bleed screw all the way out and still not get any fluid out. I shot some air through it and it worked as it should afterwards. Might be worth a shot.
