Buddy you're linking us to your ebay account payments information page. Not a smart idea, as your account info may be contained within that link (albeit encrypted) you might want to remove the whole link altogether.

prob. w/ buying elec. over the net, is it's prob. no returns. so you already at a disadvantage. how do you know if it works w/o plugging it in. and once you plug it in, you no longer have a warranty

i have a akra exhaust enroute off of ebay.....not cheap.

Well its a 100% guarantee I know that could mean nothing since its ebay but when people have that many good reviews then uaually they care enough to only sell a good product... and seeing as it was only 50$ compaired to the 600 from a local shop.. id say its worth the risk. Lol

I figure the time to ask what people think is before you are committed, after that, it is just an inviation for an insult... Hope it all works out well for you.

So the old ECU would shut the bike down after 45 min of riding?
Seems odd, you don't hear too much about peoples ECU's going bad.

good deal!

You got for $50 what a local shop wanted $600 for? Yeah, I think you were pretty smart to have taken that gamble.

I fried my ECU trying to install an alarm, and paid $1000 at the dealership for a new one

Hmm, never had any ECU issues on my 05 18k miles....
However, the transmission needs a rebuild.

I get most of my add ons off the internet. I know that might be bad to say considering there are sponsers here that would like the business but, the truth is that the prices are just cheaper this way. I know there are risks going this route but, a lot of times the cost is significatly cheaper like adrenalinjunky's deal. One of my more recent examples was a brand new Shoei X-12 for $400 with the $799 price tag still on it. Where can you find a deal like that? And if you use paypal you can file a claim if the seller doesn't send it as well.
