All the sudden having problems with my 08 ds450 going into limp mode. I know that's an issue with the 08's, so does anyone know is any company or someone still can remove the limp mode? if not does anyone have a R111L ecu laying around? Thanks

Yes I did, they told me that they cant remove the limp mode anymore and that I would have to buy the r111L from someone. But he did say that there might be a guy out there that can do it. But it just doesnt make any sense to me why all the sudden its going into limp mode and its stuck in it all the time. It never did this when I got done with building the motor and everything, and I rode it for 2 seasons and never had an issue until now.

limp mode is present on all years on stock ECU.

Purge coolant, add reflective tape shield to the fuel tank and drill big holes on your fender plastics. Your fan is working? Unplug your CTS connector and will see.

I just have limp mode problems on a race cause of mud on August (very hot weather in Europe).
