Thanks a lot.... interesting.. have had this bike since new in 04 - ln just the last month... two code issues.... one a ground wire came off a load equlizer on my LED tail lights and yesterday, my engine temp sensor went nuts - I was lucky each time to be able to call my INDY and he talked me through the steps to get the codes. However, on the road, I most likely would not have really known the problem behind the codes but it would be better to have the codes ready when I make the call. Live and learn...
In the future, I now have the knowledge to know the symptons to a engine temp sensor going out.. The temp from that front head tells your ECM what to do and if its on the blink... you bike will run (at best) like crap.... trust me.
Off to the dealer to get my new sensor - will be interesting to see how it goes. easy enough to change out.
