Me toooooo!. I am an old, new to motorcycling, person. My learning curve is sooooooo steep. What the hell is the ECM procedure???? :? Please explain. Thank you.rkekeis said:Yes it is unbelievable. Forgive my ignorance but what is the ECM procedure?
Thanks 2W. I have Fred's DVD's and the Service Manual but have not come across the ECM stuff yet. As usual, I have some work to do. :roll: I appreciate you taking the time to explain.2wing said:WV this is from touringmotorcycles.com.........reset your ECM by starting the engine WITHOUT any throttle input and not touching the throttle at all while it runs. Once you hear the radiator fans kick in, turn off the engine and wait for a couple of seconds, then start it back up. Done - ECM is reset.
Hope that helps I have a 02 and this as I recall is what is in my manual 01-05 Wing Later O' Ya Fred H. has great DVD's I like mine THANKS Fred
The ECM in the original context on this thread is referring to the replacement of the Electronic Control Module... the brains of the fuel injection and ignition systems.wvnnva said:
Raw, another excellent explanation. Thanks, I appreciate it. The only problem now is that I don't any longer have an excuse of not knowing. :lol: :lol: Whoa, wait a minute. My next excuse could be CRS. :roll: :wink:raw said:The ECM in the original context on this thread is referring to the replacement of the Electronic Control Module... the brains of the fuel injection and ignition systems.
The 2001 to the 2006 (I believe) have/had an over heating problem due to the fact the radiator fans blow the air forward, opposing the incoming air from the forward motion of the bike. At certain speeds around 15-25MPH the airflow becomes stagnant and the bikes overheated. The fans shut of around 15MPH.
This slow, low gear riding got tagged with the name “Parade Mode”. Hondas “fix” was to replace the ECM with different fuel/timing mapping when the bike was in Parade Mode. The “fix” did not fix the problem per se but did increase the time your in Parade Mode before the bike overheats. Given the right circumstances they will still overheat.
I’m not sure but I believe the 2007’s have bigger radiators.
