red light comes on 954 when rpm's go over 5500
i spoke about this before but, i was never specific enough to generate a clear, concise answer from anyone. a recap: about three weeks ago, driving down the highway, my red light came on & the FI came on at the same time. At the very same time, my speedometer stopped working. but, the bike ran great and i continued home withut issue. after turning the bike off, and then restarting it, the red light was no longer on, nor did the FI light appear on any more. a few days later, i went over 5500rpm, and again, the red light and FI light appeared on until i turned off the bike and restarted it again. now, 3 weeks later, i just got back today from a 1600km trip around the island without any issues. it's like the movie Ground hogs day: i can drive for days on end, and if i never exceed 5500rpm, the red light and FI light won't come on. but once i exceed the 5500rpm, they both come on until i turn the bike off.
now, a few updates, my speedometer never did work after that first day when all this happened, could the speedometer be effected by the Servo motor in some way?
my bike is a 2002 954 with over km60,000 on it. it runs and starts like its a brand new bike. i drove it today for 4 hours from the other end of the island back home at 140km to 190km nearly the whole way, no issues.
thanks for any info, Frank
