701 Engine light
« on: July 30, 2018, 10:40:28 am »
Hi

So this morning during my commute to work, the 701 orange "check engine light " came one. I did not change anything on the bike since the last ride. I will check the ecu and side stand connections this afternoon. Any advice on checks before phoning the dealer? Bike starts and runs with normal power, no strange noises or anything, but the light stays on.

w@nted,

your bike is klaar, sorry, you'll need a new one.
That's going to cost you I'm afraid, but to help you save forking out the excessive mandatory disposal fee I'll take the old heap off you, for free, mahala!
Send address, time & date per PM and I'll be there....









... in a flash  :P :biggrin:

Check your connectors, wiggle them, especially so when you've been through water?
If you do that 1 by 1 you may find the one which needs improved sealing or contact spray & some grease, good to know anyway.
If not helpful then disconnect the battery & reconnect, may solve the dash's glitch.


Edited: dunno, if you've set a service interval and you've gone over that mileage, perhaps a light will come on?

Hahaha, thanks for the re assurance! Ill see if I can find something tonight...Is it ok to ride the bike with the warning light on? According to the manual it is an electronics issue?

Checked all the connections I could think of with my limited knowledge: side stand, radiator fan, airbox temp sensor. All were fine. Then disconnected the battery, which did not help. Bike runs fine, but engine light stays on.

Then finally plugged out the ECU, plugged back in and the light went out. Still off after my morning commute.  :o

So according to advrider it looks quite cheap to get a ECU code reader. Has anyone bought one in SA? Otherwise it looks like a good idea to import a reader to view/clear the engine light errors.

It looks like you just need the 6 pin to obd reader cable and a Bluetooth reader that connects with your smartphone.
