Apologies for the thread jack. I can't contribute to problem at hand as I don't have any experience with the woolich kit yet, but I remember reading in the manual when I had the Kawasaki kit ecu in my 09 zx6r that you were only able to write to the ecu X amount of times before you could no longer write to it. It was a crazy absurd amount, but with my limited knowledge in electronics, I was always curious as to why that was? -Steven

You are right about that, EEPROM can be read/write 100,000 times. After that Either need to be replaced or change address. some say it is lower than 100,000. Different ATMEL may have different capacity. need the spec of the chip that is inside the ECU , but I am sure that if you can not tune the bike by 5-10k times you should give it up, LOL

Interesting stuff for sure, I appreciate the response. Haha, I'd have to agree with you if it's taking that long to get it right. However even with the large number, it's a nice piece of information to retain if buying used a couple times over maybe. Thanks again!-Steven
