    Les Cooke/Sea Doo centre reflash in the states?

    I have seen a few other people talk about les Cooke re flashes. I'm wondering how you went about doing it,and roughly what the cost was. Or is there another recommendation for a reflash? It's for my 2013 gtr 215. I don't plane on doing a lot to it,I really just want to get rid of the limiters. Is it possible without dropping $900+ for the vtec?

    R&D for $674 send them the ECU and get it back. The Vtech is expensive because of the map tuner and tuning credit involved but better in long run to flash back or run different tune.

    Les Cooke is partnered with a dealer in Lake Havasu City, Az. If you send them an ecu you will get another back with the tune that you want...

    I believe it is Havasu Powersports

    If you want yours back, then you will need to send it across the pond to Australia...

    I sent an email direct to Sea Doo centre and they quoted me $500aud which is around $450usd+shipping. Now just trying to decide if I want my ski down for a week, or wait for winter.

    Man pwc's are expensive to mod, I reflash automotive PCMs everyday for $150. I know that's not for a "tune" but rewriting with all the updates. I can't imagine it's much more difficult.

    It's not more difficult its just a much smaller pool to sell the tune too. So you got to charge more to make the money back.

    Can't speak for the new Bosch ecu, but the LesCooke Seimens ecu reflashes I have never had a problem using a Candoo or BUDS on them.
