  • 2001 RS Engine light came on - HELP.

    Engine light came on the other day a week or so after I took the bike to my mechanic to clean the carb of all the ethanol shit. He didn't know what it could be. I checked all the obvious - engine oil, etc. but everything looked good. I checked all the RS websites/forums and others had similar issues but no one could tell me what the problem was or how they fixed it. Some said their light had been on for 5 years and no issues. i only ride short distances and only ride a few times per year so I didn't worry about it. I am now riding more so now I am worried. Any ideas what this could be??

    Did it flash a code? I'm not sure if it will come on if the mechanic left the TPS unplugged but it probably will and that would be the first thing I would check. Not much on that bike will set off the light. Nothing that I know of that will leave you stranded.

    I would check the bike to make sure everything is connected. If this is not the problem I would disconnect the battery for 10 minutes or so and put it back on again, see if reset the system. Have you noticed anything wrong in the performance of the bike while riding?



    If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking

      My light has been on since I bought it, can't find any reason why and neither did the shop I bought it from. I just ignore it now.
