As removing it from circuit doesn't improve the situation. After replacing the ECU all seemed fine ran well initially but a bad battery let me down. I replaced the battery and again she started and ran fine for about 24 hours off and on then stopped completely. The fuel pump ran almost continuously and there was a total lack of sparks. To start with I thought it was the ECU again, but swapping it out for a known good one didn't help. I fiddled with everything I could think of, and checked out the wiring as best as I could with a multimeter (handicapped by a wiring diagram whos colours don't agree with the ones on the bike). All of a sudden she decided to run again, right as rain and continued to do so for a couple of days. Has anyone got any thoughts on this please?,Had a similar problem with my 1100i cali, (not the submerged ecu), turned out to be the relays, make sure that the connections in the relay block are tight, pull each relay in turn, and with a really small screwdriver slightly bend the female parts that the relay pins locate with, so the relay is a snug fit when you push it back in, sorted mine out after a week of similar headache. (Make sure the relays are not duff),,,

Yes. take it to a Triumph dealer and get them to install the correct ECU map. They are very good at helping in this way. You didn't really need a power commander as Triumph fit a reprogrammable ECU for just this reason.

There's always the possibility that the water managed to get into the ECU and fry the system, but I'd hope fervently not. Pull the dipstick. If the fluid looks black, or is shiny, you might be in for a bad day. Drain the transmission oil out if it is black (a $10 fluid vacuum pump from Wal*Mart works wonders here), and pour in the right amount of ATF fluid. It might be that it burnt the fluid so much it changed viscosities, trying to crank the engine and the car forwards? I wouldn't know, but see if that helps.

WHITE SMOKE, ENGINE NOT WORK


White smoke means you're vaporizing water. It could be a culmination of things.

1. You've got coolant leaking through your headgasket
2. You've managed to get water in your exhaust through condensation or rain.

When you say it doesn't start what to you mean? It just churns and churns or it doesn't crank.

If it's not cranking at all you may have hydrolocked the engine or simple have a dead battery. Parking down slope can causes water to run into the engine bay. Usually your rubber liners will channel water away from critical components but you do have your major electrical and ECU located in the top left portion of your engine bay. This sits right next tot he windshield and having heavy rains with your car parked down slope will channel alot of water into this area.

Was your passenger footwell damp? The ECU has a firewall gromet that runs to the passenger footwell. Water may drain through this point if it manages to make it's way into the cavity of the ecu bay.

all in all, let the car dry out, give it a go again. Keep your senses at peak, listen for odd sounds, try to get a whiff of that white smoke, check for coolant odor and be prepared to stop if something isn't right. Don't risk a major problem just because you don't want to give up trying to identify a smaller one. It just gets more expensive.

Hope this help.

Does changing the fuel map smooth the power delivery


A power commander won't help as I believe it is an issue with timing and not fuel delivery. I bought my 2000 and it came with a Power Commander. I tried messing with the fuel with little change in the results. I recently bought a 2002 ecu on ebay and swapped it in. It runs a lot smoother down low although the 5k-6k area feels a little flat so maybe I'll increase fuel there. I really should get it dynotuned at some point. If you're willing to swing the money, buy a Tuneboy instead of a power commander.
