Reading an ECU with a v1 or v2 interface - includes instructions and Video Tutorial

The Woolich Racing Tuned  (WRT) software and associated hardware allows you to read/write to most motorcycle ECUs and thereby to modify the bike's tuning.  The communication with the ECU uses the Woolich Racing Tuned software running on a PC or laptop as well as a communication interface such as a Log Box or USB interface.  There have been several interfaces developed over the last years and at the time of writing the current version is v3.

This article shows how to use the legacy v1 and v2 interfaces to read an ECU so is NOT applicable to v3 interfaces.

If you want to read an ECU with a v3 interface please see this article instead:

The following steps are a description of how to read an ECU using the Woolich Racing Tuned software and a v1/v2 interface.  The video below also shows this process so you can choose to read or watch the video:

  • Install Harness according to the Installation Instructions.
  • Connect the Interface to the harness.
  • Connect the Interface to the computer with the supplied USB cable. Please note that we recommend using a high-speed USB port.
  • Ensure Interface is in ECU flashing mode
    • Switch in the right-hand position, red LED on
  • Open Woolich Racing Tuned software
  • Open the bin file definition for your model
    • Click the "New" button then select the manufacturer, model, year and part number and click on "New"
  • Turn the bike ignition on, gear in Neutral, Kill Switch in the RUN position or turn the power supply on for bench flashing.
  • In the WRT software the "Tools"=>"Read ECU" menu item.
  • The WRT software will connect to the ECU and read the bin file from the ECU into memory.

N.B. If you are performing multiple flashes with a V1 & V2 Interface only, remember that you need to have cycled the interface into the center mode position then back to flashing mode before attempting another write/read operation.
