Maybe buy another ECU and have it re-flashed?  And keep the stock on for warranty or re-sale?

Thats not gonna work, the keys are programmed with the ECU, so you will need to have them double as well, and all the locks $$$

I am not sure if in the US our keys are chipped. On would need to investigate.

US bikes do not have chipped keys.

They are laser cut code keys, duplicates require one arm and one leg at the stealer

The whole laser thing is a myth..........they are not cut witha lazer..........but .....rather a mill or router style key cutter.  They can be more expensive......but......they don’t have to be .......if you shop around the blanks are available and an up to date lock smith will have the tool.   If you the HISS ( chipped) then you need the dealer to learn the key or knowledge locksmith to “clone” the ID of your original key.

There are automated key machines that can cut the key by the number or code on the key.

Again, The US keys are NOT coded or chipped to the ECU.

Yes the dealer might charge way more than others in the market place.

OK Grabcon I'm away (on sort of a vacation, as opposed to a real vaca with a motorcycle  :008:) but I'll remove most of the slack as well as run it with a GPS to see how optimistic the speedometer is when I return. I'll also soften up the front preload and maybe damping as well.
Just given my experience driving/riding a section of Interstate in traffic with frequency my *hunch* is at an indicated 80 mph I'm going around 73 or 74 mph. And this is on new stock tires.
A previous motorcycle (FJ-09) had a similar abrupt throttle which was maybe even more annoying and removing cable slack didn't help much if any. However having the ECM refreshed by TWD helped immensely.
Clifton, I'm having the same issue with 16 man. X CT. also had a 15 FJ09 that was greatly improved with a 2WDW reflash. I think I'll call them and ask if they can work on this Honda ECU. I'm also curious about the booster plug results before jumping in on this. only 580. miles
