I tried to follow these instructions, and it's my own stupidity that threw the codes, but I must not be doing this right.

So here's what happened. Did my base line STOCK Dyno run this evening. Any guesses what she pulled bone stock?

I had the ABS dongle installed and both wheels disabled, just as I should have. But at the end of the run, I shut the ignition off, and my cousin asked me what the temp was, and I turned the ignition back on with the back wheel still spinning down...and we all know the ABS reactivates if you turn the ignition off...:angryfire:

So now I have the all blinking dash.

Went home and looked these instructions up, and maybe I'm not understanding them.

Turn the ignition switch on and start the engine, did that
1. Run the engine more than 10 minutes (at idle???) didn't do that.
2. keep the idling speed more than 30 seconds (did that)
3. Run more than 5 minutes at speed of 25Mph or more, did that
4. Turn the ignition off, did that
Repeat 3 times, did that.

Still same flashing dash.

What did I miss? Was it the Run more than 10 minutes? Because I idle, this think would easily overheat. I let idle for 30 seconds or more and then did the 5 minute jaunts.

I know my dealer can reset this, but I do not live near my dealer. I know Woolich can reset this, but it may be next week before I install it.

Any help?

Need to ride the bike. Those are all things it needs to have to do be satisfied. Then you have to do it three separate times. It can take upwards of 200 miles to clear if not done intently.

So you need to have ran the bike at idle for more than 30 seconds, run the bike at any engine speed for at least 10 minutes, at least 5 of those minutes have to be at speeds over 25 MPH. Shut off. Start over again and do two more times.

Pain.
In.
The.
Ass.
Pretty sure I did this to the letter tonight. Will try again tomorrow.

^ This is the big one bud. It needs to be 10 minutes (at least) per key on session.

Best bet, turn it, let it idle up to temp (and for at least 30 seconds), hit the interstate for 10 minutes, pull over and stop then key it off.

Turn it back on, idle it for at least 30 seconds and ride it again on the interstate for at least another 10 minutes, pull over and stop then key it off.

Then finally, do it again but start heading towards home. When you get home should be good.
Gives me a damn good reason for a ride tomorrow:grin2:

You need one of these and Pep Boys diagnostic tool. Then you can clear the codes immediately without having to go to the dealer:

He already has the Woolich kit which will do the same thing for free. No need to buy the harness and then get another scanner tool on top of that. All he has to do is hook up the Woolich stuff that he already has.

Finally cleared it all this afternoon. You are right, what a PITA to do.

Just to be clear.
I turn the bike on let it idle for 30 secs or more, then I ride for 10 minutes over 25mph, turn the bike off(for how long) and repeat?
