    Hey guys, I've got a potential ECM issue but want to make sure I'm not overlooking anything.
    -The bike will start ok, but shuts itself off pretty quickly after starting.
    -The trouble code is 36 -- cooling fan.
    -I disconnected the fan and jumpered it straight from the battery and it runs at full speed.
    -There is continuity on both wires between the ECM and fan.

    Is this a clear case of the ECM needing to be replaced? The bike is stock -- can I get an OEM ECM for a reasonable price (the dealer wants $365 for the part). Also, what is the part number as I can only find it for the race ecm: 82007-05Y?

    Thanks for the help!

    This might be a long shot but one of the guys here had that error code with rough running and found the loom was worn through on the negative battery terminal.

    Not sure how the loom is routed on your model but it won't cost anything to have a look.

    The part number of the ECM is actually marked on it on my 12X?

    Thanks Rays, tonight I will check the loom and see if I can spot the part number -- guess I should have looked there 1st!
