DEAD MTS1200S - RESOLVED

After making it back and forth to the MotoGP in Austin, I checked the starter solenoid connection to see if it looked as burned as the previous poster. It did not, but did short while testing with the seat off and ended up completely DEAD. Check the lower left pin in the image.

The service bulletin SRV-ESB-18-001 addresses the issue with re-wiring the high current power connection to a separate fused connector. Local dealer was not helpful, but did order the part # 69928501A with a 1 week lead time.

Completed the install myself this past weekend and bike runs fine. The heat shrink tubing was a little challenge since the tubing inside diameter is small compared to the bulk of the spliced wires. A made a good connection then used electrical tape to make sure nothing moved.

2nd image shows the new wiring with the separate high current fused connection to the starter motor.

Bike started and ran fine today. Little worried when I had an issue restarting after filling up at a gas station. Rolled the bike away from the pumps and bike started fine. Good to know about known issues with RF interface and the keyless system

When I buy a used bike no matter the make/model/year, I always check the connections for the alternator into the voltage regulator, and the starter connections. It's very worrying the condition they are in even on well maintained bikes. Electricity makes heat, full stop.

Would you mind elaborating a bit on this? When you say - restarting issue, do you mean the dash would not power on normally, but instead would go to the PIN code enter screen?

I have had this happen twice at one particular gas station and same pump. This is a used bike for me, I don't know the PIN, but held the remote near the windscreen and got the proper 'start up' screen to come up and bike would crank and start.

In my situation, the display powered up without presenting the PIN entry screen. The start button would not activate. I tried 3 different times sitting next to the pump with the same results. I then rolled the bike about 20 feet away from all the pumps and the bike powered up and started normally.

I do recall a different result a year or so ago. At that time, nothing would power up. The combination of the keyless system and RF interface makes the bike go crazy.

Makes NASCAR type fuel stops impossible!

I do beleive there are other posts here that can help you set the PIN. Even though PIN entry is slow, nice to have as an option when the key is not around.
