Shipping ECU

I need some advice. From South Africa so need to ship my ecu half way round the world for the Brock/Guhl flash in August.. What is my options? I think I need to insure the ecu for the long haul. How save is the shipping I wonder because the local postal service only insure the ecu for 1000 us $ [Do you know how much the ecu is worth]. How is your experience with shipping, did you guys insure or did you trust the shipping? Any suggestion on a shipping company other than the postal services that ships "world wide".

Wow that is a problem .. I would send Brock or Don Guhl an email and ask them .. I'm sure both of them have shipped parts overseas and might be able to give you the info that will help you out .. I think the BST wheels come out of South Africa , might ask them who they us for shipping to the USA .

I shipback and forward just about weekly Aussie/USA
Express post seems best for me, fairly trackable and fast enough , without costing too much, extra insurance can be brought.

Couriers like DHL, Fedex, UPS are worldwide, but can be expensive

You have immobilisers don't you ?? replacement via Kawasaki could be in the 1000's

Personally i would buy an ecu through members here or ebay and have it sent to Guhl/Brock , get the security turned off so it will run in your bike, and whatever other featrures you want flashed.
you get to have your ecu as a backup , and no downtime for transit

Does South African spec include ABS ?
The ECU wiring connections are (slightly) different to the non-ABS ECU !

i actualy work for an intl freigh forwarder and i would sugest fed x or ups. shipping it two ways will be costly with shipping, customs clerance, i would suggest buying one in the states and having it delivered to guhl for flash. then have it shipped to you fed x. only paying one way for the intl part . if you want to keep the original one, contact a broaker in so africa and ask about a carnet. this allows you to export something and have it brought back without clerances on both sides............... im thinking it less to buy it here

ECU "book value" is $900... Insure it for that and you should be set.

Thanks Gents. Your info helped a lot. Phoned Fedex and it looks like they will be able to handle the shipping without to much hassle. It will be expensive [shipping alone ZAR 1600] but to benefit from the full potential of my mods, I need to do this.
