A new ECU is $2000
Surely I can just put on a new lockset, and have the keys reprogrammed to the existing ECU. But I have contacted two Suzuki dealers and both say I need a new ECU and Lockset.
For some reason the collar is very fussy about the orientation of the chip. No idea why but we tried mounting the chip inside the collar and with some orientations it wouldn't work.I don't think you have been reading the posts in this thread.

Here is the short version.
The way the immobilizer works is there is a little electronic chip in the plastic part of the key. When you turn on the bike the ecu sends out a radio frequency (RF) signal from the antenna collar around the lock. The chip in the key picks up this radio signal and replies with a unique ID number. (RFID)
The metal key parts and lock set have nothing to do with it. You still have the old keys. Put your old key on the same keyring as the key from your new lockset and the ECU will read your old key RFID if it is hanging close enough to the antenna around the lock. You will have to dig the chip out of the new keys otherwise the bike will get two RFID responses from one query and get confused. For testing purposes just wrap the old key in tinfoil to block the RF signals
So install new lock. Turn bike on with new key (RFID removed) while old key is hanging next to lock
Your bike is not immobilizer equipped. That's the big problem here.How come I had none of these problems?
That is a very interesting read. If there was something like that in the ECU software I should be able to find it. However these ECUs don't have VIN numbers in them so if the cheat sequence was unique to each vehicle it would have to based on something else like the key number.
