    Looking for K49 Exhaust servo motor

    Hey, anyone has a spare exhaust servo laying around they took off to to fit a servo buddy? Mine kicked the bucket and just trying to see if it anyone's willing to pawn theirs off.

    On a side note, after 43k miles this is the first and only thing to fail on the bike  :047:

    Maybe no help but . . . . .  why? just leave it off, only open at 4500 and closes again at 5500 (or thereabouts) for factory noise limits. Stays in open position when disconnected and doesn't throw a fault on the dash. Don't even need a ESE on the gen1

    I know, I Got black widow exhaust, the original servo was left plugged in to not get engine warning light, it's just probably cheaper to pawn off an unwanted servo motor than get an eliminator, plus I'm playing with the idea of putting hte OEM headers back and in that case I'd prefer to have a functioning servo. The actual servo has to stay plugged in to the control unit and it started buzzing and crackling as if it was shorting out.

    I have my original sitting in my shed....a bit far away though, would cost more than it's worth to ship it..

    As RyanGTXR said, just unplug it, however, it "will" throw a fault code which will be stored in the ECU memory.... but will not throw a fault light. I have a servo eliminator on mine after fitting headers... and has not been an issue for several years.

    I'm talking about the electrical connection, unplugging that does indeed throw an engine code. The bowden cables are already unplugged and removed.

    I meant the electrical connector too...or just remove the sevo alltogether, fit a servo buddy and your problems will be over. Did mine same time as fitting Arrow headers....the servo is just useless weight to carry around when not being used. My missus often says the same about me.. :034: :006:

    Unfortunately it's not the case for the electrical connection, it definitely does throw an unclearable engine light, as I said I don't think a servo buddy is worth 80 bucks just to clear the light, and in my case I want the servo in case I want to go back to stock, if it was possible I'd have wanted to keep the exhaust valve even on the black widow but sadly it wasn't an option.

    A few on ebay available. I have one if you want also. Idk how much shipping will be from the US but you're welcome to it. I just installed a servo buddy. Plus with the WRT, I think I'll be able to eliminate the servo altogether.
