Re: 1999 k1200 lt Moronic Control Unit Failure
Go with a used one, as long as it is guaranteed to be OK.
I have been on these LT sites since '01, and this is the first Motronic failure I have seen spoken of.
The only updates I was aware of was the secondary map (brown wire cut) that came out in late '00, and probably a change in '05 when the power increase came about.
Looks like you have a '99, so may want to get a '01 through '04 for replacement. Sure want to have the secondary map upgrade, and in case the '05 power update likely changed the injector timing, probably stay away from '05 up.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
