i have l2 restricted (34hp) end i wont to change it

My name is Rafael and I'm from Israel
After a five year break with a motorcycle ride I decided to go back to ride.
the last two years I own a l2 - 2012 with 44k km restricted to 34 HP.

recently I feel I wont '' more power '' so I want to replace the ecu.
I found a dealer here that can sell it in a good price but he don't
know which model it ''came down''
So I need your help -
Model of the ecu is 27GB1
Is it can match to l2 -2012?

Retail part numbers are different from those cast on the part. Doesn't the dealer have access to an unrestricted part to look at?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The dealer has no idea /

Maybe you can tell me what written on your ecu ?

Aren't Suzuki ECUs reflashable? Maybe all trbaron needs is a yosh box like reflash. I'm just guessing....but why build multiple ECUs when you can just program one to restrict the horsepower. Actually, trbaron should post this question on the European regional forum, since they have experiance with power restricted motorcycles, and we in North American, do not.

Thumbs down

That euro restricted dealio is pretty strange. For the SV they had a 100 hp restriction in France and we tried to figure it out once. Found a sticker under the seat on a Yamaha that said the output was restricted. They found cutting a wire to the ECU disabled it and full HP was available. Not sure if it actually worked or not.

Just looked at mine, it's a 11J20 Mitsubishi brand ECU.

Here is their reasoning...

Quote:
2.) Stricter anti-tampering regulations.
European mopeds have a constrictive top speed of 45 km/h, and light motorcycles (125 cc) have a restricted power output of 15 hp. Both classes have strict anti-tampering regulations, preventing owners from
increasing performance. The manufacturers association ACEM has now proposed to expand
anti-tampering measures to also include the restricted (stepped licence)
motorcycle (34 hp). With this proposal the industry is in effect
opening doors FEMA considers the gateway to hell: Anti-tampering
regulations for all motorcycles.

Restricted? What is this malarky?!?! Is this due to a license restriction or restricted for everyone?

Bikes do not leave the factory in a de-tuned 33hp form, they are done at a local level (dealership) for insurance / age purpose. These (depending on the bike) are through re-programming ecu and changing or modifying the airbox, and is all reversible. I have never heard of anyone needing to change out and ECU, they don't make 'restricted' ECU's, as pointed out earlier, what would be the point?

so a dealer might be required to restrict the bike if the rider is below a certain age or for the insurance to approve them at their age?

So this isnt something countries in general by law to all bikes? I had never heard of this before, but not surprised, many euro countries (and many countries outside the USA in general AND sometimes the USA) are obsessed with protecting people from themselves.

There are countries that won't allow certain size motorcycles on their "land" at all. I've read that some people have their big motorcycles on boats and the island only allows 125cc maximum size motorcycles. So NO BIG MOTORCYCLES allowed!
