TC & eng check light

Added stabilizer to gas and ran bike on center stand. Put it in gear and revved engine a little bit to spin rear wheel, warm it up & get stabilizer thru F.I. system. Now TC and check engine lights won’t go off.? Trac control was set on 1.

Have you taken the bike for a ride ?

You may need to get both wheels spinning at the same speed if it is to reset.

What you did should have also turned off your ABS.

Yes, real short ride though. Couple hundred yards, maybe not far enough?

I would think that would be far enough.

I asked the question because many times on this forum people have had similar issues but have not ridden the bike, one ride fixed all the worries.

There was a guy that changed his exhaust and the ABS & TC lights were up on his dash after many emails with the exhaust supplier they convinced him it had nothing to do with their pipe.

When he posted here I asked that same question, one short ride solved the problem, he had never noticed the ABS & TC lights don't go out until the bike has moved.

Now back to you, if it were me I would disconnect the battery for a few minutes then try the ride again, it's like a master reset and could help.

After that it is put the bike in dealer mode and check for fault codes.

Odometer is toggling between mileage and FI or F1 I noticed. Don’t remember that before this happened. Thanks.

Was the stabilizer old or a new bottle ? Marine green color or the red stuff ?

It mght take a bit of riding to get the code to clear. If it ran fine before and then after
you added the stabilizer it messed up and set the FI code.

Try riding the bike normally for a length of time and see if the code resets.

Remember the traction control monitors wheel slippage. And you ran the bike on center stand
just rear wheel turnng and not the front. You see the problem with that ?

In any case your bike did not like what you did.

Read a old thread that said the abs sensors are out of sync by rear wheel turning and front not turning. Question is will code clear itself? Or am I gonna have to go to dealer to get it cleared?
