I'm not so sure. by adding wires + component will definitely change the values and therefor would be read differently unless it is within the programmed variables. I spent a lot of time talking to people who knew a lot about the Cam Bus on various Ducati. and always the news wasn't good if changes were made. A common problem in the past was the loom heating up from not being insulated enough and that would cause false readings. My understanding is that you would have to know the whole protocols and cause and effects and have the ability to reprogram the ECU / Black box and I just don't know how you would get that info. An example being if understand it right The rear tail light and the Fan motor (as well as other things )share the same message route to the computer. if the bulb goes on the tail light, the values are predictable and a warning light is triggered (Lamp out) but if the engine temp rises it sets off the Fan regardless of the tail light being out. I know we all know this but if the fan motor has stopped working (The protocol would put it into limp mode all based on the values returned to the Black box) My point is if you change the value you wont know till you turn your indicator on and it throws your bike into limp mode. The spent Months trying to find the Fault and cause of !!!!! in my Loom and gave up (and that was with confirming the values of all components being correct.
Thanks for the warning... or scaremongering
Each sensor is allocated data codes, for example 02XX could be the tail light faulty and 0X20 could be headlight faulty. I don't know what all the codes are but I'm guessing they are the same as the error codes found using the obd reader. When operational the eproms are passing on the relevant codes for input and reaction.
Those numerous operational codes are transferred to each of the eproms on the canbus network and each eprom is programmed to give their output. Like the fuel injection for traction control, the dash eprom pings a light and the main ecu cuts the fuel, the Blackbox registers it and sends the code to each of the eproms and then they each react.
I intend going the full hog and change all the eproms so that each can work seamlessly. Namely, abs, dashboard, Blackbox, ecu, and IMU.
I have decided not to solder the IMU wires in incase there's an issue.
