Finally got the 636 running right again
Good day riders, I'm currently laid up having had 11, yup 11 Teeth extracted yesterday, So I figured I'd share my good news about my bike.
She has been running like shit since about July, Through a search of the internet and some help from everyone on here I determined that it was my ECU on my 05 636. The bike would run well for 30-45 minutes, and then buck and die. I didn't have the money for a new ECU at the time so I've been putting up with her like that for 4 months.
I finally got the funds to replace the ECU. I got a used one out of a part out 636 on Ebay for $76 shipped, I swaped it out Sunday, did the jumper mod, cleaned the air filter and switched the girl over to full synthetic oil too! When I took her out for a ride all I could think was "Wow!" I didn't realize how bad she was running until I got her all fixed up. Can anyone recommend a good heat shield to put under the ECU so it doesn't get cooked next year? or should I wrap the exhaust?
I also took a look at the chain and sprockets while she was apart, The sprockets are in good shape, but I will be needing a new chain. Any recommendations? Do I really need an xring chain if all I'm doing is some occasional twistie carving? or should I save the money for other upgrades?
Also thinking of upgrading to an HID kit this winter. Any Recommendations as to whether I should go with a plug and play kit from DDM tuning, or a wired/ relayed kit?
I'm so glad to have my bike back to the way she used to be, too bad it's gonna be shitty here the next few days, but I don't think I'm gonna be able to get my helmet over my huge swollen mouth anyways.
If that doesn't work take him down to your local Kawasaki put him on the new zx14 get him on the road and say if your going to die at least die an honorable way. Don't die on a pos Suzuki. Then before he takes off get pics of the bike and post them.
you could always just have him arrested for temp insanity.
