    hi,

    Has anyone converted their 17-19 (sp/sp2) blade for track?

    If so when fitting track fairings after removing headlamp unit and unplugging do you get an engine light?

    I have but not sure what it’s for?

    Surely not for lights?

    Thanks

    Have you tried plugging the light unit back in just to make sure it's that?

    I'm no expert but I can't see unplugging lights throwing up an error an illuminating the engine management light.

    I haven’t as I know there was no EML on before.

    I was told only other thing it could be is a “lean sensor”?

    Ideally someone has swapped out the fairings before who would know.

    This is the sort of question @RC45 could answer in a flash. I hope this tagging alerts him;).

    You rang Sir?
    Yeah - the stock Bank Angle Sensor is mounted on the back of the head light.
    You need to remove it from the headlight and then attach it to the front fairing subframe in the same orientation.
    What front subframe are you using? The better ones should have a bracket for the Bank Angle Sensor ready to go.
    Or just ZIP Tie it one one of the front subframe cross members.

    Perfect thanks.

    Original subframe as fairings are plastic replacements

    My engine light came when I fitted rear sets and the brake light switch was set too tight causing the brake light to on permanently.
    I was surprised this caused the light to come on but it did.

    Always good when they run the bull decal over the frame. Truly completes the job rather than some of the half-hearted attempts on some models.

    Some trick calipers on there.

    And what's the new throttle set up? Throttle by Bluetooth?:D

    So update....

    Fitted the lean sensor back on in a good position and solid mounted.

    First start up small EML in corner followed by sold EML in middle dash followed by a pic of a front “fork and !” Ran it up in first on stand.

    Switch off, start again and just small EML in corner, run up to 2nd, left in gear for 5-10mins no their light.

    Will this have logged a fault that needs clearing now with diagnostics?

    Thanks

    Check the DTC codes that are stored in the dash.
    You really cant run these bikes on the stand.

    You pretty much set yourself up for a myriad of phantom issues.

    These bikes need to be treated like modern cars. The bike will be confused and flumaxed if the rear wheel is turning while the front wheel is stationary.
    When the bike is started you will notice the dash lights up like a Christmas tree and various lights flash and then either stay solid or turn off. The bike is expecting to be ridden - and as such the first 20ft or 6mph are critical as the bike evaluates the status of front wheel speed sensor, rear wheel speed sensor, speed of counter shaft and ground speed.

    Once this self check is completed you should see the lights go out if all is well.

    Since the battery has been disconnected and various sensors removed/added/changed etc I would not dig the hole any deeper until I have actually started and ridden the bike above 10mph and done a number of starts stops and actual ignition cycles.

    Then once I have determined a specific component is repeatedly posting errors I would try trouble shoot further.

    The bike simply does not like operating outside of the normal startup parameters.

    Wealth of knowledge thank you.

    I didn’t disconnect battery, only headlight plugs and anything plugged in in that area.

    Will try riding around at work to see if it goes out
