Speedohealer & Track prep

Just wanted to share this so others won't be baffled like me...

I've got the speedo healer installed. Went to Barber yesterday and prep'ed the bike the night before. I pulled the fuses for the head and tail light (so heat wouldn't burn the tape adhesive to the glass). When I started up before the first session I had the LED blinking and the FI light on. A little investigation showed I had no speedo signal (constant 0 mph display). This was really too bad because while I had the speedo taped over I had wanted to use the remote on the healer to see top speed after each session.

Back home I put the fuses back in. No luck, still had FI light. Then did a reset on the healer, and, bingo, everything was back to normal. I guess pulling those fuses messed up the healer so it sent no signal to the speedo and needed a "reboot". Of course I had not written down the calibration numbers so now I have to go back out with my GPS to get it calibrated again.

The ECU doesn't use the speed signal to control the fuel map does it? Only gear and rpm I would think. So no real issue except a stupid blinking red light all day long and no way to see the max speeds.

The speed signal is related to the ignition and fuel map.

Hmm, interesting. So I wonder if the ECU switches to some basic default map when it detects an FI error.

What year is your bike? On my 05 with a SH. I take the Headlight, Brake, and turn signal fuses out. I leave the one for the Horn..as I've found out it also works the lap timer...LOL
