Re: Don't let it warm up
Who ever told you to warm up a bike with fuel injection doesn't know squat about them. The manual and every mechanic I've met say to start it and go.
The trick to resetting the ECM is to disconnect power to it, then it will go back to factory defaults, but in reality the ECM on Honda's don't learn, they use a table based on all of the inputs from the engine, barometric pressure, throttle position, engine rpm and speed, tilt of the bike, etc.
I don't think I would jump to such a conclusion.
This is off the Gold Wing board and in the manual.
Honda does indeed know exactly how it is. And so do I, because Honda taught me at an in-house training session in Torrance. There is no volatile memory in the ECM and no power on any ECM wire when the key is off. Therefore, disconnecting the battery and/or pressing the brake pedal does absolutely nothing... to the ECM. It will, however, erase the volatile memories in your clock and radios, and likely the shock adjuster as well.
This thing about disconnecting the battery to discharge capacitors is true for some automobiles, but it doesn't apply to your Wing's PGMFI system.
Here's how initialization works. Each time the bike is started with the temp gauge resting below the lowest mark, the ECM begins to initialize by gathering sensor data. Once all necessary data is present, the old data is overwritten. However, if the throttle is moved before full warm-up is reached, the initialization is cancelled (new data not installed) and the ECM goes with previously stored information. Red's post is 100% correct. Hope this clears it up.
