I don't understand your q. How much power? Do you mean alternator output? Go to the shop manual for that info. Why are you quoting the engine control unit (computer) number when asking this question?

A lot of the members here are in the United States and we use horsepower as a measurement of engine power. Kilowatts is also a measurement of engine power. I believe that 745.69987 watts equals one horsepower. the dl650 has about 70 horsepower so it should be about
52 kilowatts or 52 kw.

But i think my bike is restricted to 25 kw, is possible to have the confirmation with the ECU number ? Is that my question

Hi mate, if it's restricted you won't get the full rev range. The power will peak at a certain RPM. The 07-08 have a very strong mid range and will pull hard to redline with real quick acceleration. Hope that helps.

How much RPM is the full rev on a normal 68hp?

If the bike is restricted to 25 kW, it's probably done for legal reasons. Like in the Netherlands where your MC license comes in three (partly age-dependent) gradations, and the lower gradations restrict the kW of the bike you're allowed to ride. Some bikes, including the DL650, can be detuned legally to fit certain categories.

If that's the case, then after the restriction is applied, the authorities should be notified as well, and possibly the bikes paperwork altered or updated to this effect. So you should be able to find this in the paperwork or possibly an online government database.

I'm not a specialist or anything, but what I've seen is that the kits that detune the MC typically work by putting a restrictor of some sort in the air inlet. So you won't be able to tell from the ECU number whether the bike is detuned or not.

To answer part of OP's original question, the number on the ECM is 27GB 0 (zero). When using a plain font, an "O" would look like that, perfectly round.

Here's a DL650 vs a Versys 650 comparison I found. Hope it helps.

I've read that some "detuned" bikes cannot be upgraded when the rider has completed their training. A low power bike has to stay that way.
BMW didn't use electronics it used a different cable pull on the throttle to restrict the opening of the fuel injection on the F800 series. Just move the cable end to the open pull point and away you go.

I already have a full license to ride my bike on full power, but I don't even know if is restricted to 25 kw or not, that is the problem!

We don't have this reduced power situation in the U.S. so we don't really know as much about it as riders in other countries that do have the reduced power requirements. Can you ride with a rider with a similar bike who knows if his bike is restricted or not restricted and see how your bike compares? Does your bike pull strongly from 100 kph to 150 kph? (62 mph) to (93 mph) if so then it is not restricted.

Somewhere on the internet there is information on how to de-restrict your motor. If needed.

Since this is a new to you bike why not pull the tank and have a look at your filter to check it's condition. While you are in there check the intake tube and outlet tubes for restrictions.

Yamaha also uses (or used) a mechanical "stop" on their restricted bikes.

I dont think it is possible to change a limited DL to unlimited. Certainley not the Australian ones to my knowledge. I think the difference goes beyond just changing the ECU.

In Japan I think they restrict it with smaller pistons for 399cc.

I think Denisfernandez might get lucky with a replacement ECU from the auction sites.
