Anyone know what this module is?

This is under the rear seat. Does anyone know what this is? Is this the stock ECU or some sort of test box used on a test bike?

Is that the imu? I saw it in a video on YouTube but it was in some Asian language so I have no idea what they were saying.

If you zoom in on the bottom picture it says 2.0 at the end of whatever is printed on the bottom of it.

I assume the IMU would have to be rigidly mounted somewhere that has a fairly accurate frame of reference in x,y,z to the rest of the bike, not put in a bag an loosely placed under the rear seat where it could move around.

There's a clip holding that bag in place on the top.

Here's a pic of the IMU. It lookss much smaller and has hard mount points on it. I also only see one cable connection, that other thing has 2 cables running into it.

A Google image search of kawasaki imu returned this as the second picture. Which makes more sense as the imu as it looks like it bolts in.

Maybe the original module is for the TFT display since its in the series of pictures.

yeah, it's odd. I was looking for a picture of underseat storage and found that. I was hoping to hav e a little space under the seat and wonder if this bag/box is part of the stock setup. :scratch:

Maybe it's the system that links all of the systems together.

"KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function) is an IMU-equipped total engine and chassis management package using Kawasaki’s advanced modelling software and feedback from a compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit).

KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner, modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner."

I'll try to find the video I first saw it in.

Could just be a box hooked up to the ECU for the bike show, like something that makes dash do random stuff and the headlights come on rather than flash warnings for oil pressure and the like when the engine is normally off but key on.

Fairly certain they wouldn't just have a box like that sitting there unattached to the frame.

Err, except the dash looks normal. Meh, who knows, guess we find out soon...I hope :D
