You can use the Power Commander device which is an onboard device that essentially tricks the ECU into a new map by giving it erroneous device readings. The trouble is that you have to develop your own map which is not for the faint of heart. I toyed with selling them, but they were too much trouble for the average consumer

It is a pity that they can't be hooked up to a computer so that something like TuneECU (or TuneBoy) could be used. I use it regularly with my Triumph and consider it an essential tool for diagnostics, tuning, and repairs. They seem to have cracked the Kehin Kode.  ::)

Power Commander does make a 'learning module', someone posted about it here a while ago.  You plug it in and ride around and it takes readings and bulds your new map as you ride.  Once it's filled in you just disconnect it an enjoy the custom made map.  It was pretty pricey though.

I'm just quietly standing over in the corner, working with various people to see what I can come up with regarding this ECU thing.
I'm not a computer geek, but I know how to find resources and apply them to things that I need to get done.

In this day and age I am sure someone can crack this thing. We have tried a couple of people and the Brits have done same. The UK guy needed to start with the factory DOL and smoked it for $2,500 so that experiment ended. We have not put too much energy into it because it brings up all sorts of EPA type questions that we do not want to be part of.

If it's a Classic, and can be run on a carb setup,
I do not see why we should have the ECU
in the first place  ;)

Nor should you be.   We shouldn't want to jeopardize the import of these fine machines.

Having said that;  it sure would be nice to have a source of technical information that can fully document the algorithms (maps) provided in the factory controller.

Yup.  That's more of an aftermarket, sold for "race only" thing.  Not good for the importer to be too close to it I imagine.

I know just enough to be dangerous...that said I had Power Commander a module on my last  Harley. I hooked the whole mess up to my lap top while the module was on the bike an tuned the electronics for more HP and also richened the fuel mixture. That with a Stage I kit and some other simple mods made for a pretty hot, pretty much stock 88ci Twin Cam FLHRCI.

Not sure if this is germane to this discussion, so take it in the spirit that it is given.
I've gone back to my roots. British 1 lunger, stump puller.

I think you would have to rig up an AVL ignition to use a carburetor or be pretty good with a wiring diagram and cutting and splicing. Yes the Power Commander comment is germane to the conversation
