This will mostly be for folks who have watched their dealers update (or happen to know this).
Is the ECU updated by actually plugging directly into the ECU (removing the harness on the bike first) or is there a quick port (ala OBDII port) someplace on the bike?
I'm wondering if our ECUs can be updated without actually having the bike present - in other words, if you just happen to have a dealer who won't do it (or says they did it but actually did not which is almost impossible to prove when they won't give you a printout or let you watch) it would be nice to just pack up the ECU, find an update friendly dealer and send it off with some money for the favor.
Or, dare I even think it, spend the money and buy a new ECU (new and current would be the assumption but then you have the problem of not having the VIN in there me thinks).
