Heres a pic of the ECM cable going to the harness. I really wish I could put the pic in this view instead of using a link. I did lookup "posting pictures" on the XLforum.

from your descriptions you should have not started the bike. just turn on the ignition without starting the bike to marry the ecm.

you shouldn't even need a jump box to do it.

I'm not sure what you mean by a Jump box. But my plan is to spend some time with the bike ignition on (not running) and see where that gets me. From some of the responses here, more and more I feel like this is the obvious/oops/dumb thing that I was doing incorrectly that 99.9% of others don't have a problem with.

I hope TTS sent the ECM back yesterday. I'll report back with whatever happens from this.

I am really appreciating the responses and the help here, especially so quickly. I want to be a part of this, so I can't wait to have this problem solved and post the working solution.

I got my ECM/ECU vack from TTS mastertune yesterday. I plugged it in, turned the ignition on, pushed the run button and waited....and it worked! All that trouble just because I was starting the bike too soon. Looking back, one thing I didn’t do is watch any of the dynojet powervision videos on YouTube. There you will see that they hook it up with the bike on but not running. I went back and looked at the instructions and they don’t detail the initial process to marry. Additionally,I am a little disappointed that when I called dynojet, they didn’t aak me if I waited before turning the engine on, this would have saved me 3 weeks and about $90.

We have a couple of nice days ahead of us, so I’ll be able to really try it out, can’t wait. I poked around on the power vision and loaded a tune with SE AC and short shots. I adjusted my idle and looked at my voltage. It’s such an awesome and easy to use unit, just like everyone said. Thank you everyone for your help, I hope this helps someone in the future

I'm adding this note for anyone with the powervision who may have experienced the same issue.

I rarely ride my bike to work. We have motorcycle parking in direct sunlight, no shade. The first time I did ride my bike to work (a few weeks ago) I had my powervision mounted to the handle bars. When I left work, the PV did not power/light up as it usually does. It looked like the power cable was slightly dislodged. So I pushed the cable back in. The next time I started my bike (from my garage), the PV came on as normal. From there after, the PV worked normally, powering up every time I got on the bike.

When I get on my bike it's been sitting in my garage (in the shade of course), or after it's been off for 30sec while I fuel up. I don't go to stores, bars, friends houses etc. where the bike would sit out in sunlight.

I rode my bike to work last friday. It was a warm day (90 for a high) and basically sunny all day. When I got on the bike (to go get lunch), the PV didn't power up....I thought about the fact that: The ONLY time the PV didn't power up when I started the bike (since I got the PV working) was after it was sitting at work. I thought someone must be tampering/trying to steal it, so I went to HR for them to look at the cameras to see if this was the case.

I brought my bike home and fiddled with it. Off, on, off, on. The PV didn't power up. I checked all wire conditions and connections, everything was good. after 10-15min in my garage the PV powered up with the bike.

I am about 90% confident that the PV has an automatic shutdown when it gets too hot. I have NOT seen the PV not power up after sitting in my garage for any reasonable length of time. In fact, when I left the mcdonalds on my saturday ride, it didn't power up, it was 11am on a hot sunny day!

I have not seen anything about a high temp shutoff on the Power Vision, so I thought I would post it here. The power vision is not dead, just hot.

I never rode mine with the Power Vision connected. It's plugged in at services. Could be vibration causing an issue.

Why don't you call Dynojet in Nevada and ask them directly? I had contact with them a few months ago and they were extremely helpful. When all else fails, read the directions, or just call the manufacturer. Does the PV have an LCD screen? I know heat will make the screens unreadable for sure after a while.
