Happy Days, bike runs again after fitting another ecu, this time a stock one, together with its associated immobiliser (both used items) and the matching key.
So, the bike will fire once if the ecu is not compatible. The immobilser light was going out in 0.7 seconds so the key was recognised but the ecu didn't like the "racing" ecu supplied with my used Termi's or the flashed one I had borrowed. The original ecu I confirmed faulty using diagnostic software. It was "seeing" sidestand down and kill switch off even though those circuits/switches were fine.
So, when you think you've tried everything......go back to the original thought!
Thanks guys for all your inputs and interest.
