Without full history all the good guys here chase tails.

Yup, sensor got killed by the exhaust pinching it (due to lay'er down). The ebay replacement works well and Im back to normal. Problem solved
wont lie I kinda feel dumb but at the same time kinda surprised that the speed sensor actually died. oh well

... Can't edit till my 30 something post huh...
Anyways I just test rode it and still got no error. Got it up to about 20mph (according to gps) and got nothing.
Meh I guess I shouldn't worry about it too much until I get the new sensor installed.

The traction control (maybe ABS too?) is programmed to function only above a certain speed (25kph if memory serves correctly). That being the case, I speculate that the computer shouldn't trigger an error code while spinning on the rear stand.
I've also been told that you can indirectly disable the traction control if you do an intentional standing burnout. That would tell me that the ECU is smart enough to know when the bike is on a stand and that it allows you to spin the rear while the front is stationary.

At the moment, while my bike is on the rear stand and the rear sensor being disconnected, I can turn it on and put it in first and let it spin the rear wheel (on 1st gear Idle RPM runs about 8-10mph). I would have thought by now that the KRTC FI error would pop on... or at least a b code showing that my rear sensor is missing but nope. I just have a speedo that sets on 0.
Now, what I have in the picture is the Male connector thats on the rear wheel sensor which I thought was split on 1 pin but it was just my eyes playing tricks on me (didnt sleep the whole night trying to figure out the problem), the Female (harness) connector is all good. I came to the possible conclusion that my rear wheel sensor actually just failed because of a couple of reasons
1. The insulated wire that is between the actual sensor and the male connector was somehow pinched between the muffler and swingarm, giving 2 possibilities:
1a. The wire couldve been nicked. (Multimeter test shows its a closed circuit, but im still skeptical)
1b. The wire couldve been heated to the point that it somehow messed up the magnet on the sensor... even tho there is no warping or visible damaged on the outer wire.... (heat + magnet= failure).
2. After finding out the front and rear sensor uses the same connectors, I swapped the front to the rear and I was finally getting speed readings on my speedo. This cleared my mind of the harness/ECU/KIBS system being the problem. I did not try the rear sensor on the front tho, mainly because I thought it'd be pointless since I couldn't directly test it as well when it is connected to the front and I have no way to get the KRTC error to come up reliably.
So... I guess what I am trying to find out right now is
-Why the KRTC error wont show without the sensor being connected
-How common is a failing speedo? What is usually the culprit?
I do find it odd that the rear speedo failed when my last impact was on the left side of the bike ( I high sided on a right turn and the bike slammed on its left side into grass)

I made a topic, look for it.... made me nuts for a while..
no codes.. and the speedo was jumping... cero, numbers, then cero... on drugs the speedo..

Np for the welcome, when you have a moment make a thread introducing yourself. Makes for some good rib jabbing if not good place to see the bike.
