This may be a silly question, but how do you check an ECU?

I was given a spare when I bought the bike (2006 model) last year but I've no idea if it's ok. I have TuneECU so is it as simple as removing the existing one from the bike ( which is working fine, I just want to check the spare) & connecting up the spare to check it or am I missing something?
No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

Cant think of any other way, I know Bixxer (John) messed about with spare ECU's so maybe he can give tips, I believe the base ECU was shared with other bikes so you need to make sure it has a Tiger map loaded before you run the bike

Yep, checking the map was one of the things I wanted to do, as well as check that it was working.

Late to the party but yes,  just swap them on the bike, turn ign on BUT DONT START IT till you've checked which map is in it.

Thanks for the info, checked the spare, it has the Tiger TOR map on it & works fine.

Nice to know I have a spare if ever I need one.  :thumbsup
