I plan on doing the wire mod real soon but a flash is definitely in the future. Is the Guhl the best way to go or are there equally good places or better ways to go about it?
No, Guhl is no longer the best solution.
PM zx-sik-r and he will hook you up right. He flashed my ECU and did an awesome job. The process was easy and the communication he has with his customer is superb.
Look in ZX10RArcher's subforum for the info. He's got it all spelled out in there.Cost is the big one.
Also Guhl can remove the FI light if you ever decide to remove your Pair Valve. Woolich flashers can't. In response to that, I came up with a plug and play plug that will remove the FI light for the pair valve that I include with my flash for free.
Other than that we all change the same things and can add or change the same features (fuel cut, remove top speed limiter, adjust redline, etc, etc).
How many have you unlocked ? There's no guarantee you will be able to communicate with it,I never said it can't be done but the success rate is very small.as far as the pair valve goes it's always worked for me. I'm sure others will agree or disagree as wellYou don't even need a resistor. A piece of wire works as well. Its not checking resistance; it's checking for relative open. Or relative close. The resistance check listed in the manual is for the health of the pair valve itself. The bike could care less if its 22 ohms or 100.
As far as locking the ECU, there is an unlock ECU utility within the Woolich software that will unlock your friends ECU and he can use his LBP.
Good deal,glad you've had success with itI've unlocked 3... Tried 3. Mine on my salvage bike I bought at auction to build as a track bike, a friend's here locally and then the original I dumped last year when I first bought the Woolich kit and then gave that info the community showing what he did. Each time it was less than a 10 minute process... If that. Set it up, let it do its thing because it said it could take a while. I went about my business. Came back to check if there was any progress and it was done.
And yeah the resistor works... Its a closed circuit. The bike sees a closed circuit so it's happy. Like others have stated just shorting the connector works; wire, resistor, paper clip, staple. Its looking for a closed or open circuit; that's it. That's all my plug is. A latching connector with a shorting wire (resistance rating of .1 ohms).
if you feel like sending your money to a crook. Why even bother when someone is doing it for 1/6 the price. So your fan can come on a few degrees earlier? No thanks. Rather spend that 300$ on something that matters.GUHLS all the way no problems with my 2011 zx10r
Crook? Where do you get that from? Not to take anything away from either of the members doing it, but Guhl pretty much helped pave the way for everyone else now with the Woolich stuff. He was the only game in town for a long time. It think it's way harsh to label him a crook.if you feel like sending your money to a crook. Why even bother when someone is doing it for 1/6 the price.

Archer all the way he did mine as well and she runs purty now. Im sure the other sponsor is well equipped as well. Anthony was deff a help with some other things though.:thumbsup:
