Anyone got an ecu?

Unless someone has another idea (im really willing to listen ) i think my Ecu is buggered

Ive had a fault with my Rsv its a 99/00 plate and the efi light is on as mentioned in one of my previous posts the fault is -1, that should be the TPS needs a tinker! played with my old sensor and nothing happened so after testing it with an ohms meter conviced myself that its screwed, Ordered one off ebay and im still getting the same problem -1 on the dash no matter where this sensor is.

is my ecu fried? does anyone live in east yorkshire with one that i can buy or try

P.S I've booked donnington park for next monday Help

cheers

Thats not a fault code - its for setting up the TPS. Fault codes start with 10 and go higherSuggest you take it to a shop that know Aprilia's , out of interest are you having other problems with the bike or is it just the efi light ?

Give Southern Cross a ring and ask to speak to Don or Andy.Sure they can give you some good advise over the phone that may save you the expense of an ECU......

It runs ok ish its a but lumpy and surges on the throttle.Ok cheers i'll try giving them a ring.You dont have to have the bike running to set the TPS do you? just somthing i havent tried.cheersjon

Jon,you just need the ignition switched on, not running.Worth giving the experts a ring in the morning....stuart

if you think your up fir it have a go yourself mate www.geocities.com/sl_mille/idle.htmlThe person who wrote it is installing a new ECU (computer chip) and deals with setting the tps to 0 first. -1 means your throttle stop is set to small, the throttle is closed more than it should be at idle. You have to lift the tank and remove the air box to get to the adjuster. Follow the idle adjuster knob and wire that sticks out of the right hand side of the bike just under the tank. Where it ends you will see a mounting with a bolt and lock nut sitting above the idle adjusting cable. The bolt sets how much the throttle body valves close when off the throttle. Just roll on the throttle and watch what happens and it will make sense. Adjust that bolt inwards since you read -1 until it reads 0. Your done with that.Now you need to remove the seat, and the rear one to make things easier, and remove the rubber cover from the box you see behind the battery. Inside you will see a white wire connector, pull it apart, put it all back together and you are all done.

Ive already tried moving it from full movement either way and it never changes from -1

Whilst having my Rengade airbox fitted at Southern Cross, they dynoed it and foung that it was running rich.They took it back to the workshop and Andy and Don were fiddling about with the TPS as mine was doing the same - kept staying at -1 and then with a slight adjustment would go way off.In the end they replaced my TPS, and it was fine.p.s. mine's a 99

YEah i thought it was te TPS at first but even trying a new one aint sorted the problem i guess im going to have to admit defeat and take it to a bike shop

Hi Size12I have a spare TPS, you can use this or I can test the resistance on the terminals and see if you get the sameJohnrr

Hi johnrr, cheers for the offer but i have already bought and tried a TPS of Ebay and it didnt work either, if anyone has an ECU in the yorkshire area that i could plug onto my bike to test if mine has gone,before i shell out on another one.If its not the ECU i guess i've got a wireing fault?
