Ivans not terrible.

I'm thinking of posting my ECU over to the US of A for Ivan to work his ECU magic on.
Does anyone Know if he can mod the Ecu from European models with the oxygen sensors?
Yesterday I did a u-turn on a steep hilly road, and as the bike started on the upward slope the motor cut out with a pop! It caused a stream of expletives from me but it could have been much worse. It's the latest in a number of incidents caused by the Vulcans poor fueling, so I think Ivan will be getting my business.
I think I'll have to give him a call in September to get it sorted. Together with a more comfortable seat it seems to be a necessary mod.

I'm not sure about the oxygen sensors but they communicated very well in the emails I sent them so you may want to try just contacting them about it.

Oxygen deprivation

Ah, thanks Charlie. I'll give him a ring once he's back from vacation. The fueling and the rider seat comfort seem to be the only two two flies in the VN900's ointment...

Be sure to let us know how it turns out for you! I am thinking of sending mine to Ivan as well, but the only mod I have is a K&N filter; no exhaust or pulleys.
