Thank you for this.
BUT. My engine warning light also illuminate and no one knows why. I haven't done anything other that changing the turn signals to LED. Thats when it came on. There isn't any error codes in the system at all. And my dealer couldn't figure it out either.
How is the reflash working for you? any trouble?
Ha - you need to speak to my mate
(currently incommunicado, as he can’t reset his password!!
He’s had the same issue - just changed his exhaust, but nothing else - and similarly his check engine light is now illuminated, but with no codes showing!!
When I’ve spoken to Ivan and Spiros re the flash, they are 99% certain there has been a slight change with the euro bikes’ on-board diagnostics, now picking up that ‘something’ is different (ie the reflash), but not enough to throw a code, nor stop running (and only illuminate the light). The flash is the first change I made to the bike.
I’ve also discussed this on the Bolt forum, as there was also a thread going re check lights illuminating (no reflash) but with no codes shown. There’s a bit of a guru on there (Lunkhead) who reckons it’s to do with items being changed which are earthed, or grounded, and the items that have been exchanged are not:
I think he might be on to something. Similarly, I wonder, if not once earthed, your indicators have a slightly different power draw, or resistance, and the ECU is picking that up, and illuminating the light - guess it depends what changes Yamaha made to the OBD (as your exchanged items are LED, I guess that’s certainly possible.....lower draw, aren’t they?)
Apart from the light, the reflash is sound. Ask any of the guys on here (esp the stubborn ones who held out - I’m looking at Jevers.....) - the difference is night and day. Anyone who says it isn’t must ride whilst sound asleep......
"Yes, the ECUs are different, not only due to ABS, but also due to the immobiliser I believe......can any US owners on here confirm you also have a red ‘master’ key?"
So that is why there is a red blinking light in the dash when its parked Im guessing. Do US models have this?
The flashing light indicates the immobiliser is active, yes; and no, I don’t think the guys in the US have it.
Would you believe some of those heathens actually think that’s better
