Re: 02 1000 SET valve removal
Got a question about this on my 2001 GSXR 1000 that I just bought...........it already had a Yosh slip on when I got it ( set valve removed ), but the FI lite was on steady and readout went from temp to FI back and forth. The seller said it was because the SET valve was gone and he never did the servo wiring fix.
I checked the code and it was a C-46.
I just checked out bugmanweb and read thru his info about this and he says to take the two wire connector that goes to the servo and tie them together AND also to remove the black with brown tracer wire from the ECU plug.
Now heres what I found on mine...........whoever installed the pipe only removed the set valve and the cables, the actual electrical servo was still there and plugged in ( and moving when key on ) so my first question is :
since the servo motor was still electrically hooked up, why did I get the C-46 code and FI lite???
What I did was go to the Yosh site and read about the pipe install and they say to simply remove the black/brown wire from the ECU plug, which I just did, and bingo, the FI lite is now off, but I still have both the three wire plug and the two wire plug connected at the servo motor on the frame.
Bike seems to start and run fine - am I okay to leave it just like this or should I still unplug & remove the servo motor and tie the two wire plug wires together like some guys are saying???
I just want to be sure removing that brown/black wire will ONLY affect the set valve trouble code ( C-46 ) and that any other problems will still set off the FI / trouble code lite properly.
Sorry this got so long, thanks for any help/clarification on this, I appreciate it.
