    Thumbs up To ALL C-ABS owners - NEW ECU NOW READY | THE NEW ECU FIXES THE FLAT BATTERY ISSUES!

    Hi every one, thank you for all the feedback and support Here is the solution for all other blade owners who like me have been wrestling with this issue.

    Problem: There is a fault with the ECU on the C-ABS models that causes battery drain intermittently. This is caused by the ABS servos remaining on with low speed maneuvers (ABS is not correctly calibrated below 6mph and when tight turns are made under 6mph this causes the ABS servos to 'activate). When you turn the ignition off the servos can remain on and this is what causes the battery drain (less than 1 hour to fully flat battery).

    Solution: Since then, Honda Japan have developed a new ECU (as the existing one cannot be re-programmed to fix this) THE NEW ECU FIXES THE FLAT BATTERY ISSUES! This ECU is ready with Honda and Honda has started providing it to customers replacing the old one in the UK.

    I confirmed with the customer care in UK post being informed of the solution via the forums in UK. Honda UK Motorcycle (@01753 590510) customer care and they confirmed that a replacement is on and the Honda dealer will be able to arrange one for me. Sadly India Honda SEEMED uninformed or was withholding information which could have fixed the issue. On contacting HMSI India and detailing out the issue they readily provided me with a speedy ABS ECU replacement, a unit which is meant to tackle this issue. 2 weeks down the line as on date no issues as yet. They seem fairly confident that this is the end of the battery drain issues; Rest (alla rakha will update )

    PS: More details on the links which helped me hope they help.

I have complained and 1st time in June the battery was changed as I was told its faulty, again it dint start in a months time the battery was changed again, then again. When it still gave trouble starting Then the rectifier was changed. Again last month it stopped starting and it was taken t he workshop where having checked I was told it will never give any more trouble as it has been thoroughly checked. Yet this Friday it dint start in the morning and I had to push start it, this is when I had checked it on Thursday night. this is the 7th time in 7 months of purchase its giving me this trouble. It stops anywhere and is completely unreliable. Im totally fed up of the machine.

    Are you sure its due to heating??
    Is your abs failure light flashing??
    From what you've described, your riding in traffic and followed by parking and then when trying to switch it on, the battery seems to be drained and dead!
    This being my first post, i dont know if i'm violating any rules by posting a link of another forum but just trying to help you out so here goes
    C-ABS issues - Page 12 : Honda CBR 1000RR Motorcycle Forums: 1000RR.net

    2010 cbr1000rr Fireblade ABS Question

    try reading through the above forums and you'll figure out what the problem is! honda japan have officially sent this email to an owner who's experiencing the same problems as you...

    After many calls to Honda Japan and Europe to find out what is wrong they came back with this explanation:

    "Below 6mph the ABS is active, but not calibrated - once you go over 6mph, the system does all its checks and self diagnosis etc.
    When you drop down below 6mph, to park for example, the system cannot self diagnose itself. This causes a problem when you need to get the bike into a tight parking spot or awkward garage where you may go in and out a couple of times to get the angle right.
    As the front and rear wheels are moving at different speeds when you turn the bars back and fourth, it tricks the system into thinking a wheel needs ABS pressure and therefore applies a little power where it thinks it needs it. This is not noticeable when you are moving it around.
    However, even AFTER you cut the ignition, the system stays active and drains your batt in 30 mins"

    i maybe wrong but its worth a try reading through those forums!

    Hello ambsace,
    just read what you went through. Infact I was going through the 1000rr.net forum, and read your post there... ( I am guessing you are no longer active on this forum , looking at your post count).
    My fireblade had no such issues until recently . It has just happened a couple of times with my bike though, but still did happen.
    Its quite surprising that they changed your ECU, and when I mentioned this problem to Honda, they were wild guessing like me...
    Is the replacement only for bikes under warranty or for all ?

    I feel all the posts related to superbikes should be moved to superbike section. I never come this side, and missed this very important discussion !
    up to owners and mods etc ...
