I've had zero responses in the general forum so thought I'd try's the story: I purchased a new ECU due to mine being kaput. The bike fires right up and runs great but... All attempts at reprogramming/mating the ECU to the rest of the bike have for lack of a better word failed. The issue? When I start the bike, the immobilizer light comes on during initial turn to on then goes out as normal. About 1 or 2 seconds later it comes back on and stays on. The bike runs great but this light is driving me nuts. When I shut it back off the immobilizer light flashes for 48 hours as normal. I've tried complete red-black-black-red key reprogramming but the dang light won't stay out when the bike is running. Any thoughts?,,,,

I am waiting for my fourth ECU. Is a failing ECU common? Is there a known faulty component in the ignition system that could cause the ECU to fail?

ECU failure is not that common, There is something wrong that is causing them to fail or causing it to look like it failed. One common point is the crank sensor that sends the signal to the unit to tell the plugs to fire, Another is the circuit after the ecm that fires the plugs.

Digital ignitor

as the ecu is designed to have the correct power curve and rev limiter for each motor. unless you can find ecu from similar engine take into account rev range or you may risk serious damage, but it is possible.

How do you see jf ecu is working

There are a number of subsystems, relays, sensors etc which should be ruled out before dishing out the $$$ for an ecu. I would highly recommend getting a service manual from, say amazon for example. It's the best money you'll ever spend on your totally cool bike.

My husband has 2007 ducati 1098s, there was a recall on it about the ecu and stalling issues how can you tell if the ecu has been changed or not, are the ecu units the same

They are the same ecu's, they just downloand an updated map (program).
You need to contact a dealer and they'll have the ability to conect it to a scanner and check for new uploads in the existing ecu.

I lost my ignation key for my cbr1000rr i need a replacement.

Honda doesn't or claims it doesn't keep record of their transponder passwords, which is prolly true. Dealership will tell you Barrel, and ecu need be changed with new set of keys and tank/passenger seat locks which will run you $1400+. In principal, you can purchase a new ecu with matched blank keys and have them cut to your current key code, which should run you $800ish but i don't know if they will do it.. other cheaper options include:
- $250-ish: send ecu to specialized shops that hack it (physically) and reprogram it and then send it back with two matched blank keys (plus $30-ish if you want them cut, but you need to send them the barrel also)
- $400-ish: buy used and hacked ecu with matched blank keys..then cut them yourself to your key code.
- $100-ish: buy used U.S. spec ECU eliminating HISS altogether, then you can cut keys that will work without programming the transponders, but you will need to alter your wiring harness or buy U.S. loom.( If you have a japan bike you have another wiring problem with the exhaust servo)

P.S. people telling you just to cut keys don't have /have dealt with HISS before.
Good Luck

I have lost my keys for a cbr1000rr 2004/2005 is there anyway of over-riding the the HISS system. I dont wanna buy a complete ECU

you should be able to take your title with vin number on it to your local dealer and order new keys, shouldn' t be an issue.
