    2022 Flap wire disconnect

    before you invest on slip-on, you might want to try doing this. on my previous R9T there's not much of a difference but on S1000XR, the sound is damn way louder and big growls. one thing i noticed now, after 20secs the idle sound will go down very noticeably. unlike before, startup and idle stays the same.

    Very easy to do. Remove the rear sets so you have more room. Remove the plastic cover using 5/16. Then on disconnecting wires, all you need to do is loosen the bolts using 10mm then lift them to uncoil. Put the bolts and tighten them and tuck the wires at the back. Place the cover and you should be all set.

    It won't be 5/16"...it will be 8mm, these bikes are all metric, the 5/16" and 8mm are essentially interchangeable though. If you remove the exhaust valve cables without either a servo buddy or getting it mapped out...it will thow a fault light and fault code as the cable start/stop points will be different to the factory setting.

    What code reader did you use..??

    The Gen-1's don't throw a light but they do throw a fault code, was under the impression the Gen-2's were similar....so unless you check for fault codes you may never know. :027:

    If it doesn't throw a light does it even matter? Not like it's gonna be annoying or anything and doesn't affect function of the bike.

    True, and you're quite right.... but knowing it will have a fault code stored does bother me a bit...OCD and all, can't help myself and have to get it sorted....I have a servo buddy on mine anyway so no codes anymore.

    Gen 2 will throw a fault on dash and in the ECU memory. I believe it has a fault counter, so it won’t throw the error immediately - it will do it after couple ignition on/off cycles

    so far, a couple of times riding it. And many on/off cycle, so far none. I'll update anything comes up. Now, if ever will get dash error, that servo buddy is the answer lol
