OK, hold on. Now you have me questioning my response. Don't go committing to anything based on my reply just yet. You may have to pair the ECU with the dash which would not make it plug-and-play, exactly.
I would have to research that particular swap to be 100%
Often you need to re-set the tps with software at a minimum.
If the ecu has paired with the immobilizer you need it re-set (virgin) or removed if possible.
Some of the later models (which yours might be) have no immobilizer in the ecu it is in the dash only. which should allow you to simply install it.
you certainly would be best off to contact your dealer with your model and what ecu you are looking at. Most Dp ecu's of that era also keep the O2 sensors.
Lets see if Belter has more up to date info, If not I will look into it a bit for you but if I am going to do so I need your year and model bike as well as what ecu you are planning on.
I have done a little research and it appears that a used race ECU is interchangeable with other multistradas within the same model year/generation. Naturally I go out and buy a used ECU before I thought to ask you guys.
The 2010-2012 ECUs are all interchangeable and are plug and play. The Termis came with the "DP" ECU which replaced the stock ECU. In 2013, they switched to the new map being on a jump drive you plugged into the bike. I took my stock ECU off of my 2011 and sent it to Redline to get it mapped to my configuration. If you end up removing the ECU, feel free to hit me up. I can provide some pointers that will make the process less painful.
Good news! It appears that the modern multistrada ECU's are interchanable. I purchased a used race ECU and the damn thing is working as it should. No errors, no explosions, and no fuming that I threw away a couple of hundred bucks. Of course the install was a PTA because I choose to pull the fuel tank but I had nothing else to do on a stormy day. To me this seems like a miracle because the older ECU's had to be a brand new "virgin" ECU or a reflash to work.
I am running the Termi stubby with a gutted catalyst and I will see how it is running tomorrow. I might just spring for a new exhaust because that freaking heat shield messes with my right heel causing my right foot to touch down way too often. Thanks for the feedback!!
