Hello, Just returned from a 2 week 9400k mile Alaska trip on the 05 Dl1000. I have always had the slight hickup at 3.5-4k rpm but on the trip it has gotten Worse!!!!!!!!!  It is still under warrent cause I bought it as a hold over last year. I took it to the shop 2day and they said they would check it out, but if they cant get it to do it to them they are going to charge me a Hr of labor!!!!  I did some searching on here and read about the service bulletin 35 and was wondering of anyone had this or know where I can view and print it out so if they say they cant find it I would have some ammo to fight with them, thanks.

I took mine in with same complaints- started out fine then got worse. after talking I had them look up service bulletin #35 (they said they receive all copies yet they did not have that one). They looked online- read it and then ordered me a new ecu. milage went from 45 to 42mpg; put in iridium plugs and milage is at 44ish. Stumbling / surging  in 3k-4k range

Thanks for answering do you know where they found it at online? I have looked and cant find anything on it, Even looked on a national site and its not listed? I just know they are going to try to screw me. I also just learned that even if they cant get the problem to occur they cant charge me the hr 65 dollor labor charge casue of the Magnussan-Moss warrenty act?

They have a dealer site with all the good stuff.

You do not have access to dealer site. My dealer did not charge anything to replace as under warranty. They are supposed to check TPS, TBS and valve clearance before replacing ECU yet I did mine at service interval so no charge

I don't know where you are, but here in California they can not charge you for a warranty claim even if they can not duplicate the problem.

I had the same problem with my K5. Always had the hicups under 3K, but developed a misfire between 3 and 4K and an annoying stutter during accelleration in the same range. I saw the Tech Bulletin listed on another thread and called the dealer here in Ohio. They looked it up over the phone, read it and scheduled me an appointment at no cost. Right now they are waiting for a new ECU to come in and I should have my bike back in the next couple of days. I will let you know if it fixed the problem and if it cost me anything. But as of Friday there are no costs to me. The service guy said Suzuki pays parts and labor on this bulletin. Grin

Got my K5 back from the dealer today Huh?   It fit the criteria for Service Bulletin 35 so they put in a new ECU.Total cost to yours truely is zero. There were no hassels at all. The bike runs so much better. The new ECU completly eliminated any problems above 2800RPM. I was trying to see if the misfire happened below 3000RPM like it used to do, and I did get one at about 2750RPM. Still, I'm happy.

I got a copy of the service bulletin and will try to post it when I can get it scanned. It does specify that there is no cost to the bike owner and that was my experience. It also states that the following items must be checked prior to replacing the ECU because they can cause similar symptoms:
TB synchronization
Valve clearance adjustment
Idle speed adjustment
TPS adjustment.

Hope this helps.

I just had my 600 mile service on my 05 (bought it new in July '07) and the tech said they could not get rid of my stuttering issues so they were ordering a new ECU for me. They did the TPS, TBS, checked Valves and even used their Yosh Box.

When I first got the bike I immediately put in a Power Commander since I knew they wouldn't even think of replacing it until after the 600 miles. I removed the PCIII in the morning before I took it in and rode it around for a few hours. The issues were right back so I made sure to mention it when I dropped it off. That's what got them to start looking.

I'm hoping that Suzuki does not give them a hard time since it is all warranty work. I do want to say to anyone with these type of issues that the Power Commander immediately smoothed out my bike. So if you don't want to fight with your dealer or your bike is out of warranty then a PCIII is a lot cheaper than a new ECU.

The work gets charged to Suzuki as "Warranty" but the bike does not need to be under warranty. I bought my '05 in January of '06 and just got mine replaced at absolutely no cost. Also, I finally got the service bulletin for everyone to read if I can get it to post.

Hopefully there are two images above this line Sad

"optional ECM has been developed".... It could be a simple "tunned" ECU with yoshimura, nikko or suzuki tool. No different "hardware", only other adjustments. But really, I think that it could be made by dealer without change ecu.

Hi everyone.

My first post here in this forum.
However Ive already made very good use of a lot of the info in this forum to sort out my 2 or 3 week old purchase of a 06 DL1000 with 11500 km on the clock. (Then?)

Re this ECU replacement.

I have done most of the pre-checks but still have the low rev issues of rough running etc.

Can anyone tell me if this ECU replacement warranty is relevant for other countries?

I live down under in New Zealand!

Thanks in advance from the Kiwi Lad  :-)

As far as I know it is US only. But sure wouldn't hurt to check with your dealer.

The worst part about this...everybody has the same problem, the bulletin is from 2006 and yet when I brought my K11 Vee to the dealer for first service last week and asked him to check for hesitation around the 3000rpm range they said they never heard of it. The tech looked at me like  :Smiley and took my bike for service. Some 300 bucks later the oil was changed, all bolts tightened and nothing was found wrong on the FI at all (?). Apparently they took it for a test ride and it's running just fine. When riding home, I experienced the same hesitation right after warm up. How can it be that Suzuki still delivers the bike with the same problem, and, even worse, denies all knowledge? I called the dealer back the next day to complain and he said he would check with Suzuki and get back to me. Still waiting....

Other than that...I love the bike  Cheesy

 Or you can handle it yourself and add a little fuel on the bottom end to rid yourself of the problem with a TEKA or Yosh box adjustment to the ECM.

Does anyone know if this service bulletin applies in Canada. The dealer I am taking my bike to for first service "it's a 2011" said the factory ecu cannot be re-mapped Huh?. Is that true?
