The V has been running great for the most part until yesterday ('09, 10,000+ miles, owned for a little over 1 year). I came out of work to ride home, and tried to start the bike. It went through all the normal pre-start diagnostics, but the FI light stayed on. I wasn't really paying attention so started it anyway. . . . It ran kind of poorly, so I was freaked out that I'd started it with FI light on, and turned it off right away.
Then thought about it a minute and decided that I really needed to get home anyway. The second time was same as the first. FI stayed on, but bike started. I revved it a bit, and the light went out.
I'd had similar thing happen in the past, and just disconnected power briefly, which reset computer and bike seemed fine after that. So, tried that again--probably not the smartest thing to do, but needed to be said in the interests of full disclosure and all. . . . Anyway, went to ride into work this morning, and the thing is having same issues w/ FI light and it wasn't running very well. Revving didn't clear the FI light this time, and weather was poor anyway, so decided I didn't want to be stranded in bad weather w/ bike not running, so took old carbed bike instead!
Anyway, (yeah, I know this is getting long), looked up problems w/ Fuel injection light and decided to try to read the self-diagnostic codes. It turns out the bike is throwing a "code 11--Main Throttle sensor". . . . I haven't done any recent mods or maintenance, so don't think this is because of anything I've done necessarily--well did put new mirrors on last night, but problem had already manifested at that point.
So, now what? Will adjusting the TPS help? I found a thread on that. This is my first fuel injected bike, and really have no experience working on one except what you've read above. Thanks for any help or advice you can give.
