My ecu is fried. Anyone know where I can get a 99-01 up graded ecu? I will settle for stock, but want the plastic case (upgrade) instead of metal. I tried ebay, none are pre 02 so they wont work. I searched the classified section on this site too. Dealer says new its $780... That hurts the wallet.

99 V92c
01 Sv 650s

dont know

Dealer said it heats up to the point it cant be touched by simply turning the key to on. They suggested looking for a used one, so I dont think they are trying to scam me. I am having cams, a fuel programmer, diffedent slipons, etc put on too, so i am spending somr cash

You might try Old97 Choppers in NC. Don't have the web address at present. You should be able to Google it. I've had good luck finding used parts for my old V92C there. Fast Shipping too....

I've never heard of those symptoms before, but you might want to make sure there is nothing wrong with the main harness; because if you get a new ECM and there is something in the harness grounding out then you will have ruined your new ECM too.

In the past when I've come across a fried ECM I was able to take it apart to expose the circut board and was able to see the burnt spot. There may be a way to track down the culpret by plugging in the circut board and removing fuses/relays or tracing heat until something is exposed.

Those old 99 harnesses are a pain, especially now that we are 12 years in. FYI a 2002-2006 TC harness is an almost direct swap in and you can benefit from the new style ECM. I just did this swap recently to a 99 if you need more info. The harness and ECM could be purchased used for less than the cost of a 99 ECM new. Plus the new system makes the old motor run a bit smoother too!
