Ducati 620 Immobilizer removal through TUNEECU?

Hey guys, I'm new around here and I just bought a project bike that the previous owner lost the keys to, a 2003 Ducati 620 Dark. I got a great deal so I figured worst case scenario I can swap it to Carb or part it out, but I'm a pretty handy guy and would like to remove the immobi from the ECU through a new map and bring this thing back to life!

So far a bunch of people say this is possible, and obviously it is if there are companies offering the service (for $250), but my google fu is not good enough to find EXACTLY the method I need to go about this. I ordered the necessary OBD and USB cables and downloaded the correct drivers, I think.

What next? Should I use DucatiDiag, TuneECU, Guzzi(something)? I put another ignition switch/key set into the bike that a friend had laying around and now the bike turns on, but obviously the immobi is preventing it from cranking.

Thanks so much in advance, and if anyone needs proof that this bike is not stolen before offering advice, I will gladly provide pics of the title as well as the folder of service records from the P.O.


ETA: Thread is worthless without pics, right?

You will need to find an "XDF" file for that bike. With the appropriate XDF loaded into TunerPro you should be able to turn off the immobilizer. I have never worked on one of those so I am only guessing based on the ECU files that I have seen. You will also need Guzzdiag to read and write to the ECU.

For about $250 either Houston Superbikes or MotoWheels can reflash your ECU with a DP performance map (if available) and also remove the immobilizer. But you need to call them first because your dash could be linked to the ECU.

Awesome thanks for the info. Is an XDF the same as an HEX file? I found a map for my bike in the hex format. If not, what is an XDF file and what does it do?

Sorry for the noob questions. This is my first Ducati/immobi problem.

Another question: I downloaded GuzziDiag, but when it asks me to pick which bike I have, which one would be compatible with my 620?

Did you download GuzziDiag or IAWDiag? I think you have a 59M ECU on your bike and I don't believe MotoGuzzi used that ECU on any bikes. You might be able to connect using IAWDiag but I'm not sure.

I believe you will find that you have a 5.9 ECU There is software that can read and write to that ECU but the "Editing" part is where it gets tricky. An XDF file is a "translator interface" used by TunerPro to decode and edit your BIN file which is your map. Now if you have a HEX file and you are able to write that to your ECU using TuneECU that may work as well. I would pursue the HEX file first, I am not aware of any XDF files for the 5.9ecu but I have not looked for one. TuneECU uses HEX and TunerPro uses BIN.

Hope that helps.

Post (attach) the HEX file that you have and I'll see if I can read it. Add.txt to the end so that it will upload.

Jerry,
iaw5x (reader & writer) will do the 59 ECU. I have not used it on my 998 because I do not have a working XDF
