Hello there thanks for looking, I have just bought an 06 track bike, it comes up error 62 with the fi light flashing, upon removal of the airbox the throttle body plug was unattached, when I plugged back in and turned the ignition key it made a dreadful noise so obviously the black servo box is knackered. The secondaries have already been removed, instead of me spending a whole heap of cash on new throttle bodies etc can I just plug in some resistor to fool the ecu into thinking all is well like you can do with the exhaust servo, thank you in advance fellas.

Thank you Skydork, sorry I,m not too mechanically minded as you may have gathered!!. appreciated the link and the chap has done a superb job of it but it is way past my ability unfortunately. Shame there is no way to get rid of error code unless I buy new bodies.

Some tape over the speedo might have to suffice , all the very best.

Skydork (or anyone else with know how), can an ecu flash get rid of the fi light for code 62?, The fella who looked at my bike said he poss needs a "p" code (with four numbers?) not just a code62 and maybe he can sort it.

Any help appreciated thanks.

Me again! :wink:

To answer your question, "no". The subthrottle light is not one of the faults that can be turned off. Reflashing on the later models (Gen 4 and Gen 5) have the capability to turn some of the FI codes off, but not all. Things like the exhaust servo and KLEEN valve removal are popular. But that doesn't mean all of them can be deactivated. On the Gen 5, the Woolich software can be used to clear fault codes, but not disable them (aside from what I already mentioned).

The problem with the Gen 2 is it's age. Reflashing the ECU didn't really start to go mainstream until the 2008 timeframe. The Gen 3 bikes did it, but it was limited to mail-in services with limited potential. And these days, it's not in the best interest of the developers to add that capability for older bikes that have limited amounts of them still in service. So essentially you can't reflash the old ECUs to disable that code specifically. At least not that I know of at this stage. Sorry.

Oh, and the 4 digit "p" code numbering sounds like ODB-II diagnostic terminology. Doesn't really apply to bikes in the same way. So there's no "p" code equivalent since Kawasaki issues they own code listing. FI code 62 for the subthrottle sensor fault is all you're going to get out of the system or documentation.

Thanks for the very informative reply Skydork. I will keep an eye out for some good secondhand tb,s. wish there was a cheaper way but that's the way it is. Tape over the clocks was a thought but its no good when I want to part with the bike in the future I guess.

You have been a great help and its very much appreciated.

Sure thing! No problem! :wink:

Another, possibly cheaper option, might be just to see if you can find a damaged unit, but with a good secondary servo motor. You could salvage just the servo motor off of it, connect it to your harness, and secure it out of the way. This would in theory trick the ECU into not turning on the FI code since it would get responses from the motor. Whether or not you can find such a thing in working order may be the trick. Good luck though!

For what its worth, the input value range on the secondaries sensor is 4.75v-5.25v (Blue wire) and Output value is 0.77v-4.22 (Blue/white wire)

You may be able to get away with running a resistor from the blue to blue/white to get it to the correct range. It may still throw a check engine light because the voltage varies but it's cheap to try it.
