2005 910S SPU/ECU/dash Updates and upgrades?

HI everyone, first time poster. looks like a great forum!

i just bought a 2005 MV brutale 910s yesterday. just poking round the bike today, and checking whats been done. Checking the SPU, the paper label has lost all its ink so doesnt show the part number. however the little inspection cover has the updated part number on the inside "8A00A9300" would i be safe in assuming i have the good SPU?

I do a few long distance trips, with my wife as pillion, so i want to go right through the bike and ensure its as best as it could be.

also, would it be a good idea to update the ECU from the IAW 16M part number 8000A5280 unit to the later 5SM unit part number 8000A9037? there is a seller local to me selling a brand new one. Would this deliver better fuel economy and rideability?

also, the SET button on my dash does not work, so i pulled it apart and had a look. there is a little bit of corrosion evident in the dash circut board. Ive found a f4750 dash for stupid cheap that is known to be good. does anyone know if it will plug into the brutale loom and work? its cheap enough for me to take a punt, but would be good to have some background knowledge.

and one more question, is it worthwhile fitting a power commander to this bike, even tho the ecu is tunable? As i have also bought a new link pipe (decat) and a K/N air filter and would like to have it tuned to suit.

sorry for all the question, i'd appreciate any advice or knowledge


cheers.joe.

as posted by theknurl:


as Carl said;
if your VIN is 100421 or lower the new part number for your SPU is 8A00A9615

if your VIN is 100422 or higher, the new part number for your SPU is 8A00A9300.

Welcome to the forum Joe.
Answers to your questions. 1. Yes, SPU seems up to date.
2. No you can't swap the ECU's over.
3. Yes it's probably a good idea to add a PC if you replace link pipe and filter. That ECU of yours is not tuneable by the general public.
4. As for the dash, yes it will plug straight into place.

The meter may have a different calibration for the speedometer.....F4 has different final gearing. You may need to get a SpeedoHealer or YellowBox to correct the speedometer.....

Or just clean up the corrosion.....I have always found the select button on my bike a difficult thing to consistently operate.

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

thanks for the help so far guys.

yesterday poking round the bike, i noticed the headlight glass moved, so pulled on it gently, the glass come out! so, went and bought some adhesive silicone used for glass to plastic bonding. sorted it.

looks like i might have the good version of the SPU, so i went to the extra trouble of pulling the unit out and then get some gasket making silicon and proceeded to seal the box up better. i ran a 2mm bead of the instant gasket around the back panel and also around the fuse access door. i can believe an electrical unit such as the SPU is able to get water into it!

i also pulled the dash apart and do some looking into it. the set button switch seems to be opperational, however following the circuit along, there is a diode/resistor before the current goe under the LCD display. there was no current going through this. so i am taking the dash to a electronics engineer to see if he can repair this. i also noticed the main backlight globe is smokey/clouded. so will replace that at the same time. i'll then spary the board in lanolin oil, then run a bead of instant gasket around the casing to help seal it better. the dash current has next to no sealing on it, so im not surpised about the corrosion. foruntely the corrosion in the dash currently has pretty much wiped off with some electrical contact cleaner.

seems the fuel level sender in the tank is stuffed. so will need to test it before i have to track down another.

cheers.joe.
