Damn. Hope they can get a new one quickly for you!

That is my best guess. The dealer will not look at it until this coming week sometime.

Got a call from the dealer today. They think the immobilizer has failed A new one on order. We will see if that fixes the problem. I am about 50/50 that a new immobilizer will fix it. I am still fixated on the antenna ring.

The ICU comes with one orange key. Strange how will it fit in your lock, or maybe it's not done and you will have to go to locksmith before that???

If you are talking about me, yes I had one of the first 1999 Busas that was sold in my area. Amazing motorcycle. I finally traded it in for a 2002 RC51. That Hayabusa still is the most powerful bike I have ever owned. I had a GSXR-1000 but the Busa torque was impressive!

Sorry, and yes, I meant you. I still have my 99 copper. I was probably the first in my area.

I was up to about 10 bikes, but I'm now back down to 7, including a gen 2 busa.

Got a call from the dealer. No new immobilizer available until September

You want to know why KTM does not sell too many road bikes in the USA? Take a guess! First an unreliable part then parts delays. Duh!

Don't get me wrong. The 990 SMR is a fantastic bike when it is running.

As soon as I get it back in running condition from the shop I will trade it for something non KTM.

Will keep my 690 though. It is immobilizer free.

Currently leaning towards the GS1200. Reliability on those may be just as sketchy but at least I have a dealer close by and I think BMW may be a little better at getting parts.

I may try reloading my Tune ECU maps to see if that does anything. I have the ECU loaded with a Tune ECU map then a Power Commander and then an Autotune on top of that. Probably none of that is the problem, but it costs nothing to reload all the maps.

Correct me if I am wrong, but won't the SuperDuke ECU swap over? I think those had the newer cams before the adventure too right? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-KTM-Sup...cc386b&vxp=mtr

Thanks for the link! I purchased that ECU. We will see how this goes. I have TuneECU maps, a Power Commander, and Autotune. Not sure if I can load 2010 maps into a 2008.

It's my understanding that the 09+ maps will "look for" the immobilizer, plus I don't think tune ecu will even let you, otherwise you could just load an 08 map on your current ecu and be done with it. What you could do is copy and paste the cells from whatever map you want onto the 08 map...I hope this works. I might do the same thing just as a precaution if it does.

Thanks for the input. TuneECU has 2008 Super Duke maps so easy enough to get one of those and modify it. I am going to be so stoked if this works!
