mil with egcv removed

I bought my 929 with the flapper mod and the egcv valve removed. The mil/fi light is on, and I am fairly sure this is because the egcv is removed (error code 0304 I believe) and so it is not seing the resistance that the egcv is supposed to have. Can I put in a resistor where the egcv plus is at so that it think the servo is there still? Any other way to make the mil light go away besides putting the egcv back in? I'm a noob on my 929, so thanks for the help. I did a little searching, but didn't find anything really helpful.

Re: mil with egcv removed

The reason (most likely) that you are getting an FI code is because the person that removed the flapper and valve forgot to mark the servo that the cables were attached to BEFORE moving it by hand to loosen the cables for removal. You need to play with the positions of the servo until the FI light is no longer visible. It may take some time, but you'll dial it in.

Re: mil with egcv removed

Thanks for the reply. I'll give it a try. So can I just turn the servo until the light goes off?

Re: mil with egcv removed

I think you are going to have to turn it, then turn on the bike, see if the light goes out, if not shut off and turn the servo again. repeat until light doesn't stay on.... I may be wrong on this though

- I think you're right. The computer needs to reset. So....only a cold on-off cycle will do that.

Re: mil with egcv removed

On the servo, if it still has the allen set screw and top pully, have the allen head of the screw point 90 degrees directly out from your bike. That, at least, is where mine is since I have that removed on my bike and don't get the FI light coming on.

Re: mil with egcv removed

ok, so here's an update: I went to adjust the servo, but the servo motor was removed along with the egcv. So, do I have to put the servo motor back in to make the fi light go away, or can I wire up resistors with the correct resistances in the 5 or 6 pin connector that the servo connects to?

Re: mil with egcv removed

If I have to reconnect the servo motor, does anyone have any pictures they can send me showing where it goes on the bike? I didn't take it off, so it's kind of hard to know exactly what it's supposed to look like. Thanks

Re: mil with egcv removed

Nobody has taken their servo motor out?
I would like to be doing this without a red fi light!

Re: mil with egcv removed

It's been a while since I've had the plastics off, but I believe it's on the left side, behind the mid fairing, under the tank and behind the motor a bit up high near the air box.
