Gen2 ECU vs Gen3 ECU

Is it possible that I install Gen2 ECU on Gen3 bike?
A seller in ebay claimed that hardware of both are the same, just the difference of part number.

gen3 ecu controls 8 injectors and gen2 controls 4, if I was going to guess it will not work.

That part number difference is because the software inside the ECU is different. It will probably connect up, but I wouldn't expect it to run the G3 bike. As Thundercoupe9 said already, there are 8 fuel injectors on the G3 that the G2 computer can't run them. I'd bet there are other differences as well, like the gear indicator output, etc.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Go ahead and try it, that's the only way to know for sure.
