Went to a Suzuki dealer. They checked on Suzuki's website and told me my VIN # wasn't on the list. They told me to call American Suzuki about this and that's when I got the jist from American Suzuki.

That sucks......I figured all 05 models would be within that range. Are you having isues, and if so you could always just get a PCIII and be done with it?

I have installed a PCIII, GIpro TRE and did my own TBS. Runs good now but once in a while it has a little cough in the intake. I just thought having the ECU replaced would rectify the whole problem completely.

Is yours a California model?

CA model, all 4 Suzuki's I have had have a hick up, every now and then in the beginning of a ride. Can happen in cold weather more. I am told it has to do with the fuel back flow and smog canister. Never got a good answer but the best so far is that condensed fuel in the vent hose causes a small pause in the flow (kind of like holding your finger over the end of a straw) creating a hick up in the flow. Never have it happen after the bike goes about a mile though.

PCIII AND cough through the intake?? The whole point of the PCIII is to richen things up in order to eliminate the cough through the intake....which is caused by the mixture being too lean.

Interesting but sad....I'm looking at a similar Service Bulletin no.55 and no years are mention so I would assume it would cover my 2002 Vstrom 1000 BUT it clearly states Suzuki will cover the cost under warranty with no limit to miles.

No limit to miles does not equal no limit to time. That's where you're had. You have an old bike and any warranty claims ought to have been addressed many years ago. If issues are only cropping up now, that's hardly a warranty issue.
