Reprogramming stock ECU?

I'm reading all of the posts on race ECU's and kind help but wonder if you couldn't just have the stock ECU reprogrammed? I have the MV Corse item for my 1000R but at least from the outside, it looks identical except the sticker. Some shops also offer a race ECU only on exchange basis. Any thoughts?

yes you can.....IF you have the computer software and know how. This is what FBF does when they sell you a "Race" ECU in exchange for your original.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Is the difference that the chip is soldered directly into the ECU and if so can you de-solder it and solder in a plug for a chip? Or do I have it entirely wrong?

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

The 16M ECU has a reprogrammable and removable chip. It is a rather crude low power ECU.

The 5SM ECU on the newer bikes is a much more powerful processor. There is no removable chip. It is a sealed unit, but you can access the programming if you have the communication tools.

Thx guys. Just wondering then why there aren't any more shops other than FBF that do this. The price FBF is asking is very high, seems to me, for just a reprogramming gig. Any others wizzards in the field worth giving a try?

Because you have to buy the software and communication cable and actually know what you are doing.

There are guys out there who can do this, but it can be tricky with the EPA and tampering laws.

Who is it in the Midwest that has accessed the ECU programming? They posted an ignition chart for Lee if I remember?

Just spoke to my dealer who said "Yes we can".

I know about a guy in Goes, Netherlands (currently in Belgium) reprograms race ECU's for Ducatis. Will give him a call but the Ducatisti tells me he charges 120 Euro to fix your glitches...I have heard worse. Will keep you posted if I find out anything new.

Ah you are the one with Mexican plate I saw at zandvoort. Are you talking City dealer?
Probably you mean ruud frederiks van tovami, he has to my knowledge not doen anything yet on reprogramming 5sm ecu or microtec's for MV.
He did the PCIII on mikes 1078rr
