    Re: FI Light on in Older 'Birds

    As i said, it was familiar...

    i had a D51 and my new one is a D52, all is well.

    I'm sure Honda doesn't know the extent of the problem, mainly because BBirds owners resolve their 25 issue with used parts. It's an old bike, sells around ~4.000$, who is going to pay ~1.300$ on a new ECU? My bike had warranty and between KS, wire harness and ECU, it was around 2.200€ only in parts.

    Very true ie New cost but when you consider you have no idea what you are buying used for $400-$600 and spend this to have the same thing happen again not idea really is it?
    Hence I was hoping to get a reply from Honda Japan ststing they might have been aware and the part problem and it was revised as then $1100 for a new one may have been considered knowing that I won't have the same problem. I wasn't holding my breath thought expecting Honda would be owning up to a fault but thought being well out of warranty and having these parts in stock there might have been a chance of acknowledgment of this ecu to maybe sell what was is in stock but that wasn't the case. I won't be risking the same problem with a new one thus will buy a used one & take the risk like everyone else I guess.
    Thanks for the help as usual guys this forum has been of great help to this newby XX owmer.

    I think you'll be on the safe side here, as one said, if you install your ECU on another bike it will throw the 25 error as soon as you turn on the bike, so a used (faulty) ECU will have the same behaviour, as long as you can test it before you buy, or can return the ECU to the seller.

    Yes you are right I just wish I had another test bike or ecu to try but I don't so might have to take a gamble unfortunately..

    Got a new (used) ecu from IXXion and it cured my ecu problem. Old one was not secured by previous owner and it failed, now it works fine as I foam wrapped the new unit, so probably your's is bad also.
