it should work ... but personally i don't like that way of doing things ...if you don't care about hooking up 12volts (even with the resistor) to your signal input of your ecu (5 volt max) ... go ahead
"normally" it should not spike to 12volt ... but if for whatever reason the ecu put 12 volt on the red wire long enough ... you will get 12 volt on input signal
and if the ecu see a voltage NEAR it's reference voltage (5Vdc), a fault code 17 (short circuit to Vref) will pop up .. in the other way .. if it put ground long enough ... you will get 0v on the signal . .. the ecu will again put a fault code 17 (Short circuit to ground)
so this fix WILL work ... and it should not pop up Fault code 18 ..
but if you're looking for a ROCK SOLID fix ! .. that's not the way to go ..give me some time .. i'm working on it this week ... should be okay soon ..and it'S not a 60$ fix...
btw the ecu if protected against short to ground and short to 5vdc ... you can run forever like that.... but put 12volts on it ... I really don't know .. and i don't want to know .. or give me your ecu i will test it ... but if your ecu get bricked in the test! not my trouble
Damn...I thought this was going to be a simple process like unplugging something, but sheesh..all these geek talk got me not want to take 'em off after all haha j/k guys, I'm just not as microchip savvy as some of you guys are.
version 2 works as of 06/01/09, and i've travelled about... 60miles with no CEL still... so if anything happens, i'll keep you guys posted.
btw... if anyone is interested... here's how i did mine
i just gutted the stock servo box, replaced the cap with a real 2x2 twill CF panel that I made, and secured the inside wires / capacitors / resistors. It looks pretty cool on the bike without the lil black sack.
if anyone is interested... i could even do it for you if you send me your stock servo box. just pm me.
