fried my ecu...

yep, thats right. i was hooking up my speedo healer and for some stupid reason that i cant explain i hooked the small red wire up backwards and sent 12 volts to the speed sensor instead of the SH. the speed sensor is hooked straight to the ecu so i sent 12 volts where it wasnt supposed to go and fried my ecu. i have no explanation as to why i did this. i am so pissed/upset/mad/sad that words cannot explain how shitty i feel. i feel as if a member of my family just died.

and for those of you who will question me, yes, i checked all the fuses. none of the sensors are fused. i checked the fuses, then look up the fault code i was getting (Err 2, then it would blink Err 1 and Err 2) and it said "Internal ECU Malfunction." Then i looked at the colored wiring diagram in the service manual to make sure i didnt miss anything only to find that none of the sensors are fused. my fu<kin ecu is fried.

to add insult to injury i am a mechanic. i should've never done what i did and dont know why i did it.

gunna take it to the shop tomorrow and try to pull a fast one on them but dont think i'm going to get very far. all the electrical mods (integrator and flushies) i installed myself which if i'm not mistaken voids the warranty since there is no proof that i didnt cause it. i'm just going to tell them that i went out to my bike and it wouldnt start and threw this code at me. if they ask about the mods i'm going to say that i had another shop put them on. if they ask for documentation i dont have it and didnt know that it would void the warranty.

I checked out mrcycles.com and the ecu costs $857. i can pay for it, but either way my plans for this weekend to goto deals gap is now shot to shit. anyone who has been watching the thread knows how excited i was about going.

like i said... i feel like a member of my family has just died...

i really hope the dealership will cover it...



SO! now my words to the wise... DOUBLE CHECK, no TRIPLE CHECK that if you wire ANYTHING up on your bike, no matter fused or not, that its hooked up right. or you could end up in my shoes, and trust me, these are some shoes i wouldnt wish on ANYONE!!!

hmm... so you screwed up and your solution is to defraud someone else to fix it.

Doesn't rate highly in my book. Man up and eat the $857 cost.

That's why you disconnect battery power before working on anything electrical...

sorry to hear that man. Ecu problems suck and can be expensive. Hopefully it all works out as least expensive as possible. Good luck.

Yeah thats the one downside to having one of the best stock ecu's on the bike. It becomes really expensive to fix it.

Blue because it is faster.
