BDM frame aluminum is most commonly used to bring up to date ECU’s, make adjustments to written ECM programs, and even engineer probe holders. You will often find that it will include an alloy support system made completely of aluminum, an acrylic sheet of some sorts, BDM probes, wires, and other miscellaneous items found around the house. The frame can work with a huge variety of different objects such as KTM 100 or even KTAG. It is safe to say that use for BDM frame aluminum can easily be found.
To use the aluminum, there is a process that one must go through. To begin with, you are going to want to attach the probe to the Boot system via a connection. This may be a bit difficult to accomplish but the results are well worth it if we say so. The actual legend of the computer will come in handy during this part as it will allow you to know whether or not the aluminum is being used rightly. This is important to know as it will help prevent you from throwing away all of your previously accomplished hard work.
The next step at hand would be to break open the ECU. Many reports that this particular step can be difficult, so it is important that you consider that whilst attempting this. It will help to prevent issues from occurring further into the project. You will also want to avoid the welding jumper as that doesn’t play any part in the BDM frame aluminum or this project at all if we are being completely honest.
Once you happen upon the acrylic board that holds the LCD light bar you will begin to have some fun. You will need to dismantle the bar as a whole but still make sure that it is a light source for this next step. You will then you a tiny set of jumper cables to asses the status of the plug-ins. This will help to reduce the likelihood of you needing to weld certain aspects together and should be relatively easy to do.
This is fairly easy to accomplish if done in the manner that we have described above. Of course, it isn’t the easiest project around, but it fairly simple to do and we think it is rather fun. This is just one of the many uses of BDM from aluminum, but trust us when we say there is a whole world filled with lovely uses for this specific type of metal.
