All sorted for just £27.89!

I have the use of 2 FJR1300 (2016 and 2017) models in our Blood Bike charity service in Yorkshire (UK). During the Covid-19 crisis we had engine lights coming on on these two bikes. No dealers were open or available to check the issues. Thanks to this group I was able become informed on how I could resolve the issue. Two items purchased from Amazon were the conversion lead from the 4-terminal OBD output and a wifi module.

I then downloaded 'Car Scanner' the free app for iOS and had a go at checking the faults. Really really easy. One showed up as an ABS issue (as a result of an MoT done on a rolling road, only one wheel turning at a time created the issue), the other was linked to the cruise control having failed to work correctly.

Both faults were cleared using the devices and remained clear during road tests following reassembly.

We now had both bikes back on the road and able to continue with our service in these difficult times. Many thanks to those who posted the information that gave me the confidence to tackle these issues!

I wish ODB would let me see the error codes as to why my CC is getting some kind of fault. Proprietary dealer only code readers should be illegal.

That's the problem...what codes. There are none on the ODB, yammy doesn't want you to work on your bike without a trip to the dealer and their proprietary code readers.

Perhaps normal.... clean brake/clutch switches and wheel sensors, ensure rear pedal is returning fully, as discussed in recent threads.

I believe that the whole reason behind going to the government mandated uniform OBD programming was to eliminate manufacturer proprietary equipment & software so that the equipment to troubleshoot and maintain your vehicleís performance/emmisions are available to anyone to buy and use. This was done so that independent shops &owners can fix things with the hope of better emissions compliance.

Inexpensive code readers are available and easy to use, you just need an adapter cable to hook up to your bike. Have you looked in your diagnostics menuís at all ? Do you have a Factory Service Manual to help guide you through your problem(s)

2016 up, OBD... if there is an active code, it will show up on the right hand display, but to get to it and clear it, you need the OBD reader, no other way.
Note, the OBD reader/harness only may not get to every little code... there is another 3-way connector... dealer hooks up his laptop using Yammy proprietary software (need a legitimate dealer code to access), and may be able to see some other info. But rarely should we need to do that if we have our own readers.

Yay my fist FJR fault just out of warranty is the flashing CC light and the service manual says to use the yammy middle finger code reader to find out which sensor is generating the intermittent fault. Will be easier to find when the sensor fails completely...

My reader and harness work great. Super easy to use.

If I had a flashing cc light I’d be looking at my brake switches and rear pedal.

No commercials. No dictators.
