Ahh crap something I did now..

Ok..

I need some help here guys. Last couple weeks ago I bought a HTEV eliminator from Haas.. great product. Tonight I was tightening my throttle cable which I had to go under the airbox to do.. when I noticed this flapper thing in the middle. Ok.. I think the HTEV elminator controls the flapper, and I got rid of those cables, so now my bike is trying to suck air through this blocked air passage that the air intake is on the opposite side of flapper. I remove this and the linkage below.

Ok now I am ready to start her up .. throttle tight.. ya. Starts yes.. but now every so often the red light next to the neutral lite comes on and I think this is the injector light.

Umm what did I do and will this hurt my bike? Seems I hear a slight click too when the red light comes on. Bike runs and seems to throttle up fine, but the red light keeps winking at me..

HELP!

Not really sure what flapper you are taking about under the air box?? The only thing there is the "heat" deflector (nothing more than a piece of rubber if you ask me). However, count you flashes and let us know who many you get. I can look it up and tell you the error code. Are you sure maybe you didn't knock the HTEV servo off??

No, it won't hurt your bike. I think everyone that gets rid of the HTEV/flapper will end up with a red light. I know one guy just kept on riding til the bulb just burned out. There was a thread about this earlier, but I don't know how the rider fixed it. Since I' from CA, my red light was because the O2 sensor was removed to make way for the full system. I was able to fix the red light problem with a resistor installed in the right place.

Re: Ahh crap something I did now..

I will tell you exactly what you did. First off you probably have a 35 code, which is the servo motor. Tell me this, you removed the servo didn't you ? Well, put it back and plug it back in. Don't worry about putting the cables back on, just the servo motor. Your troubles should be gone.

Re: Ahh crap something I did now..

Just got to thinking about your clicking noise. Where is that coming from? If you have the servo motor still installed, listen to it. If that is where you clicking noise is coming from, then you just chewed up the internal gears. No you can't rebuild it you are going to have to buy a new one.

I was messing with the air flapper a while back and got the same light. Some how I trashed my servo motor. So I had to fork out $180 to replace it. I have come to the conclusion, I like my low end and kept the flapper and the HTEV. Haven't had a problem since.

You know Dynojet makes a eliminator for that O2 sensor. It is only $17.

Dan Kyle gave me the resistor for free when I bought my PCIII from him
