Clear Check Engine Light 2017

Does anyone know how to clear the check engine light on a 2017 Versys? I was fiddling with the IAP sensor since the Versys was running a little rough. (checking for tube cracks) and the check engine light tripped.

Thanks. Also for those who have followed this saga, the versys still runs rough. I’ve tried everything. Still can not find a reason why it’s running rough/lean at midrange.

I've traced the issue to possibly the IAP sensor, but I'd like to clear the check engine light and test to make sure it's really the IAP. Can anyone help?

Check your original IAP vacuum hose which is quite thin causing it to collapse under vacuum pressure, and which may also be cracked... Replace with the same length of some genuine GoodYear 5/32" thick-walled rubber vacuum hose from your automotive parts supplier. Make sure all throttle body vacuum caps and vent hoses are good and in place.

I assume it is the same as the 2015 / 2016 650 Versys, from what I read, once the fault is fixed, it resets automatically. So that would mean you still have problems. I copied to fault #51 and stopped. The thread is moved, to avoid the search spiders. @RoaringTodd

Thank you very much - I did not realize that the light goes off if the fault is fixed automatically, did I read that right? On my automobiles, I've had to scan the code, and then erase.

Yes that is what I read, I would suggest testing and finding out what code is causing the fault, it is fairly simple. I looked up what they mention about erasing in memory KDS Ver.3 , just about fell of my chair what this signal to USB converter costs.

Yep - IAP sensor, which new is $185. The lines look good. Sigh.

Is there a pdf link here for the 2017 Versys service manual? I couldn’t find it.

Alrighty then - swapped in a salvage IAP sensor from a local motorcycle yard. Didn't make the check engine light go out, although it did seem to run a little but better. May have just been the placebo effect.

Unless there are any other ideas, off to the dealership it goes. $$$

HOPE that IAP sensor you found fixed the problem!

Unfortunately, no, it didn't. CEU still on.
