I did take the old SPU to an electronics repairer and his take is that it was 'badly' made, hence problems were intermittent and subject to temperature variation. He said he could redo all the traces and check all the components out but that by the time he's finished, it'd cost as much as a new SPU so I didn't try to repair it. Such as shame because there's really only ever one or two functions not working.
Thank you Paul! I love the bike, it was my dream since when I was a teeneager but these electronic issues are extremely frustrating. Now I will buy a new SPU but I hate the fact that it seems there is nothing you can do to avoid this problems. I have already a black one but it could die again after 1 day and it seems there is nothing I can do to change that.
BTW greeting also from "her" (see picture below).

Iīm having the same issue on my Brutale 750s. VIN002524, the correct new SPU is installed (8A00A9615-V2). Sometimes the bike doesn't want to start at all, mostly of the time it starts but after reaching temperature I start to experience the shutter/stop issues. The SPU starts to cut power to injector / fuel pump / coil line and the bike turns off.
What should I do now? I buy a new SPU but thatīs doestnīt solve the issue! There is no guarantee that it will last more than some hours.
To be honest it is quite frustrating. Do you have any suggestion? has anybody solved the issue permanently? Are there different "black SPU"? Are you aware of design changes?

Hi Tob, I have found through bad experience with the bike that it will be worth your time to clean all the contacts (including fuses, or just put in new fuses), and protect the contacts with grease (I use dielectric grease, but others here have their own take due to the insulating nature of the grease).

These are some of my experiences:
  • No power to bike when hot - bad battery connection. Clean up battery terminals and protect with dielectric grease - Fixed
  • Bike won't start intermittently - oxidated 40Amp fuse under the seat. New fuse and smear of dielectric grease on the housing (not the fuse) - Fixed
  • Headlight dims and brighten - bad fuse, and I think it caused damage to the SPU as well. Fixed for a time.
  • Indicators - oxidated contacts in the indicator itself. Clean and dielectric grease (now replaced with LEDs with Badlands load balancer). Works perfect now.

If you look at the pins on your old SPU, you might find oxidation on them (some of mine were). So when I replaced the SPU, I also smear a bit of dielectric grease on the face of the plug (not the pins). My bike has been perfect since these measures, though I expect that with the humidity of where I live, these maintenance types measures will have to be carried out regularly to keep the electrics working.

Who moved my cheese?

We sell 3 to 5 of these units per month and have no problems anymore."

"Yes, The 8A00A9300 should work, we have only good feedback on these new and improved SPUís."

Even though my Brute has a VIN lower than 100421.

This is supposedly a new and improved SPU for all 910's -
Is this correct???
I contacted MV directly and they advised the same as above. My chassis is lower than 100421 and they advised me that 8A00A9300 is the correct part. I'm even more confused now!

The problem with using that 6 digit VIN is the missing digits that came before....the last 6 digits are the production sequence number but those same numbers could randomly appear in several years or models.

The 8th digit back tells the year. The first 8 digits of the VIN tells the model (among other info).

In the MV parts catalogs the last six digits are listed to designate production changes in the specific model the catalog represents. I would defer to Star Twins and MV for the information, not this thread.

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