Ecu for 2001 gl 1800

Post by Jun »



Is there a way to get an ecu for my bike without floating a loan? One Honda dealership wanted $953. Another wanted $732.

To find a used one, look at online auctions like Ebay, Offer-Up and Craig's List to name a few. Or search out motorcycle dismantlers.

For new - go to Partzilla.com or Ronayers.com.

read the descriptions close, and verify the item by looking at every single picture they post. lots of sellers don't know what they have.

I'd recommend that you purchase new. There are stories out there where a used one seemed like a great choice. Here are a couple of reasons not to buy used:

- unless the ECM was recently replaced, all 2001-03 ECMs are failing. In short, they are failing because "their DNA" says that their end is near, or it's already over
- some owners' will purchase a new ECM, and sell their old one to help off-set the cost of their new one

Basically ... buyer beware !!! ECMs are like a light bulb. They only live so long.
