Help please! ECU Damaged....2014 Tiger 800XC
« on: March 14, 2021, 10:34:05 AM »
Hello All...

Not a great post to have to do for my first post!

ALL AND ANY HELP MOST APPRECIATED!

I damaged my ECU .... embarrassing story involving a drill, poor light and rushing!  :172: :087: :125:

I have looked at prices for a new ECU on Triumph website and OMG!

I have seen a couple of ECU's available from breakers for around 150 mark with the same part numbers.
However they all have different Tune and Calibration numbers and obviously VIN Numbers???
What would I need to look out for and is it possible to buy a used ECU?

What would need to be done/encoded/setup to have it "talk" with my bike...keys/alarm etc???

Anything else I need to look out for as I hang my head in shame!!!!

Thanks for any advice in advance on this....

Cheers

Mambat

Yes you can fit a used ECU of the same type. You can install the correct correct tune/calibration software but only a Triumph dealer can recode your keys, immobiliser etc with the replacement ECU. The only thing they can't edit (as far as I recall) is the VIN.

How badly damaged is yours (photos)?

Hi Tune800XC

Thanks for the response!!!

I have attached photos of my proud moment.
The hole is 15mm deep. The bike will turnover intermittently but will not fire up.
I am doubtful the frontal lobotomy of the ECU can be repaired??

What do you think is the best way forward???

Thanks for the help.

Cheers

i haven't done this myself, but I do know someone who sent away his ECU to a specialised ECU repair company who actually opened the unit and replaced some faulty components.
Your drill damage doesn't look too bad.
It might pay to do a web search to find an ECU repair service.
Or, when all else is futile, you might consider opening up the case yourself to access the circuit and see what can be repaired.

Hi chuckxc

Funny, I am actually online at the moment looking at the companies here in the UK that specialize in ECU Repairs!
Thanks for the advice though!

Cheers

Just as a matter  of interest where abouts is the ECU on the bike? (I perhaps should know but I dont) and what was the reason you were drilling near it?

Certainly looks to be a very good starting place. Let us know how you go.

I was fitting the Pyramid shock spray protector...
It reads like Air Crash Investigators with different things going wrong leading to disaster!
Leaving the spray protector to the last minute to fit
Glue not drying because I was too lazy to fetch my extension back in the house for my blow heater
Decided to rivet it on rather
Poor light in my garage as one of my bulbs had blown ...laziness again
I lifted the ECU and taped it out the way and measure up, actually checked and re-checked
Under bike now to final drill not noticing in the semi-dark the tape had let go and ECU had dropped back down
Perfect drill spot to hit the side of the ECU.....
Not my finest hour
Fun Times Ahead!

The ECU sits under the seat next to the battery on the left hand side of bike.

Shouldve fitted the Pyramid ECU Drill Protector first 😉

Sorry, couldnt resist. Honestly sounds like something I would do. Hope you get it sorted.
