Must the dealer program the speedy prior to the initial start or can you go from crate ( plus oil, gas, battery...) and turn the key?
I've been told that the dealer must encode the dealer number, etc... prior to the fuel pump activating.
Anyone know?

Could be, but I doubt it.



I've been wrong before. I have heard 2 versions about this, but I still doubt it.

Even on cars, with much smarter ECUs, the dealers only do this on the very expensive and/or powerful. Mostly to prevent the shippers and dealership monkeys from joyriding.

I doubt it, too.
I don't think the dealer would need to encode the dealer number on the ECU - the factory knows where they sent the bike.
The bike is fully assembled at the factory, and run. They then pack it up for shipping, where some disassembly is done, and I doubt they would go through the trouble of 'locking' the ECU, for the dealer to 'unlock', but I couldn't say for sure.

I helped my dealer uncrate a Rocket and Speed Triple. The rocket needs some stuff put on, but the S3 is pretty much ready to go. They figure 4 hours average setup time, but its more like 6 for a dressed Rocket, and 2 for the S3, including pre-service and test ride.

BTW - these bikes come in a wooden crate, and use 2 to 4 tie-down straps to anchor the bike in the crate. They're pretty decent quality straps, and the dealers usually end up throwing them out. My dealer has a cardboard box in his parts department - "Tie-down straps - $3 each".

I took the bike off the showroom floor. It had been prepped, but not started. The guys know me as I've worked at a Suzuki dealer from 78-93 and know most of the local bikers. I used to wrench for an AMA semi-pro roadracer so I'm not a noob, just old and old fashioned so all this internet stuff..... just don't have the time for all the posts some have, but seems like the right way to share knowledge.

Yeah, dealer says that although ecu is specific for the vin assigned, the computer needs several short imputs so it will energize the pump and go into adapt mode. I guess I need to trailer it up.

We've paid for those already...
