Copperhead ECU for the Rhino 700 EFI

We have released our replacement ECU for the 2008+ Yamaha Rhino 700 EFI.

The Copperhead® ECU is a plug and play replacement for the stock ECU in the Rhino 700 EFI (not a piggyback solution). It controls the timing and fuel, and improves throttle response. It provides a typical 6% power increase from idle to redline (WOT), and a part throttle power increase of up to 25% over stock. In addition, the top speed limiter has been increased to allow for about 16KPH/10MPH higher top speed (results dependant on tire size). The ECU also allows for the speedometer to be recalibrated for different tire sizes, and fuel can be adjusted for aftermarket camshafts and pipes (requires optional USB interface).

Users are picking up 2-3MPH more top speed over the piggyback solutions that are currently available.

In addition, with our unit, you can replace the injector for even more part throttle power (we dyno'd 25% more HP in the 1/4-1/2 throttle range over our ECU alone, using the Suzuki injector SKU 15710-48G00 which is a direct plug in replacement, and a slight map change).

Welcome... With a new ecu, are you guys making any kits to adapt the older 660 to fuel injection?

Right now we have no plans to make a conversion kit. Part of the problem is a lack of affordable EFI parts. The markup on the parts are outrageous, and it doesn't make the project viable.

When we started out King Quad 700 ECU, the replacement parts were very affordable. By the end of the project, Suzuki obviously figured out they weren't giving guys the shaft enough, and the price went up 10x for all the parts! $12 injectors became $120, $30 idle motors, $300!

Just a quick note to let you know due to the strong US dollar, the price on the Copperhead ECU for the Rhino 700 is now $400USD.

If you were thinking of getting one, the exchange rate right now is making it much more affordable.
