16M ECU Repair (Europe)

Hi guys,

If any of you are having issues with ECUs in Europe get it sent over to the boys at Carmo Electronics.

https://www.carmo.nl/index.php?main_...54&language=en

Having replaced most of the easy parts to find my fault it was the ECU.

Turn around time is just over a week and their communication is good. It's pricier than buying a used 16M ECU from a busted Ducati but it gives a years worth of worry free riding as well.
esq'z me and theknurl like this.

Hi Dan
thanks for posting useful to have a good recommendation for the forum, did it sort your running issues and did they give a reason for the failure?

Hi Chris,

Failure was no control over coil 1, which feeds 1&4.

The ECU should be back with me at the end of this week. I shipped it Wednesday last week. Repaired by Monday, paid last night so hopefully it'll get fired up on Friday or Saturday

Sucks if it is the ECU, aren't they super expensive? How much was it to get it repaired?

I too would want to know why the ECU burnout in the first place. That isn't exactly something that should happen on any bike.. or a car for that matter.

The ECU didn't "burn out".

That was the same issue I had on my ECU. Th driver for the Number 1 coil failed. Good idea to have it repaired. I had both drivers replaced with new upgraded parts. Much better than buying another 20 year old ECU that has the same ageing parts.

The guy who did the work on mine here in Oz said it is fairly common for the old 16M ECUs to have drivers fail due to age.

Oh I understand, so probably just a failed cap or transistor or both for coil driver

All in it was about £350. Much better than buying a used MV unit because they are bloody expensive.

Ducati ones can be had for half the price.

I only sent it to Carmo as I had the funds and they did a great job last time.

There is absolutely no practical reason for the MV ECUs to cost more.They are the same thing

Hi,

I agree, Carmo USA did a great job repairing my ECU as well.

https://www.mvagusta.net/forum/20-ma...ml#post2548185

Initially their communication was good. However, I asked twice what the cause of the fault was, but they never replied. I opened the rubber access cover for the EPROM and found that a couple of resistors had been replaced.

Anyway, I still recommend them, as they solved my problem.
