Hi all,

Right the long story is:

So the bikes high mileage 92k, this is where the first problems start. It Road to work fine, but when I went to go home the bike just sat on the starter and eventually started to tick over (very lumpy) and just kept dying. so got recovered home, found that cylinder 1 wasn't firing, and the compression was down to like 80PSI, needed the bike back on the road so decided I'd buy a new engine.

New Engine - all fitted and plumed in and she ticks over nicely. go to rev it and it bogs and dies, can sometimes build the rev us slowly but still not right, after some checking and some playing with the TPS I gave up and decided to get the bike plugged in for diagnostics and it kept coming back with a TPS error, so I sourced another TPS and the bike is still doing the same.

I'm pretty sure the shop said they checked the wiring so could this be and ECU fault? and if I get a new ECU is this going to affect my HISS system, or can I just plug it in and go?

Thanks in advanced,
