Other than dropping a bit of weight, what is the advantage of removing the EXUP?

Opens up room for more goodies...  ;)

    In my case, I have relocated there the rear brake fluid reservoire.
    Because of my hand made seat, was not possible to keep the reservoire in the original place.

    Has anyone made their own?  All we are doing is tricking the computer to "show" a load for the motor, and position sensor.  I know guys on R-1's have made their own.  Id gladly spend $3 before $50 and spend a few minutes soldering if I knew its possible.

    It is very possible, a few resistors, capacitors and a microcontroller. It would cost about 10 dollars for the electronics and if you wanted the nice plug in style that is offered by 12 o'clock then you can add another 5. The only problem is the programming required for the microcontroller, which the 12 o'clock uses the Amtel tiny25-20ssu (they cost just over a buck). The 12 o'clock circuitry has 5 resistors (one for each pin), 3 caps, and the microcontroller. What the extra 35 dollars you are paying for would be the programming of the controller chip, that is a little more complicated than building the circuit to eliminate the exup.

    I know there are successful breadboards for the 4-wire, but I haven't seen anything for the 5-wire that worked.

      Just adding a positive note for 12 O'Clock Labs. Shipping was fast and I got no error codes when firing my bike up yesterday.

      Is there anyone who has removed their exup and still has it lying around and that is willing to part with it (at least for a little while, I can send it back). I'm trying to create my own Exup emulator, an open source version that would only cost about 15 bucks to make, but I need a complete unit for raw data. I would use mine, but I completely destroyed it when I took it apart. If you've got one, shoot me a PM and we can work something out.

      Thanks for the offers gents, I was actually able to source one locally. Here is the preliminary result from my efforts this weekend:
      Here is my prototype eliminator:



      Here it is all hooked up in the Roadliner I was working with:



      And finally, here we have the bike turned on, notice the lack of MIL:




      I'll have to make a printed version instead of the bread board and take it for a few test rides. When I am confident that I have the bugs worked out, I will post all of the instructions on how to make your own!!

      Could someone post a photo of what it is that needs to be removed.  I took some pics of something behind my right side rear foot peg that I think it is, but can't get them from my phone on here.

      Thanks.
