2018 ninja H2 ECU flash not available

I purchased my Vandemon titanium exhaust and am ready to put it on. I wanted to do a stage II Brocks performance package to my bike... full pipe, ecu flash, power commander and air filter.

I just contacted Brocks and they don't have a flash for the 2018 model. They only have them for the 2015-2016 models. I contacted dynojet power commander in Las Vegas and spoke to them and they don't have any data either for the 2018 bike, therefore don't have anything to sell me. They said there has not been a demand and therefore they have not done any testing.

I was thinking of just ordering the 2016 model flash from Brocks and same with the power commander... just order their 2016 model.

Any suggestions would be appreciated? Thanks in advance.

Different ECU now by Bosch in 2017-18 models. I don't think it's compatible with earlier models.

Woolich says they have a flash for the 2018.

Ted's right, I would look to Woolich as well, when you look at their website it has all the paraphernalia for flashing the 2018 H2.

You could do all your own "real world" tuning via data logging/flashing etc. or maybe get someone local who knows the systems to do it (as I did).

Unless Brock/Guhl are going to sort it out soon maybe??

Don.

Recommend purchasing a new ECU, then have it flashed, I wouldn't recommend re flashing your OEM ECU

Thanks. I went to their website and it appears they have some things for 18 h2 but it's all foreign language to me. I don't understand exactly how these products work... I put in a ticket inquiry with their customer service.

I contacted Brocks, no they dont do 2018, and I am also looking who can do it. Why to purchase a new ECU?

I got the Woolich setup and have a 2018. You can do a flash with it. The hardest part is finding the connectors in the tail section.

Reasons to purchase a new ECU and flash it instead of your original:
-Ability to put the factory one back in in case you ever go in for warranty work
-Ability to put the bike back to stock and sell the flashed ECU in the future
-Ability to determine if potential problems are due to ECU tuning or mechanically related
-It is an electrical component and is subject to failure do to natural causes
-There is also a very slim chance anytime you flash an ECU of damage to it

2017 is a Mitsubishi ECU and the bike has a Bosch IMU (not a Bosch ECU)
(I expect the 2018 is the same)

Just remember that the Woolich flash for the H2 (and current ZX10R) requires an internet connection to make changes which can be a PIA. Most of the other Woolich products don't require it.
