    Gs911 fault codes

    Hi all,
    I’m hoping someone can help me out.
    I was out riding last week and it started raining. Not long after I got an engine Waring light and the bike went into limp mode. I pulled over, turned the bike off and back on and the fault had disappeared, but came back shortly after. I managed to limp home at 30mph coughing and spluttering at times.
    I have since purchased a gs911 code reader and got the following codes.
    0x3A1461, 0x3A1462 and 0x3A1B70.
    I believe the first 2 codes are the exhaust flap fault and the 3rd is the camshaft position sensor. I have reset the codes but I’m thinking I really should be looking to solve why the codes appeared in the first place?
    I’m thinking if I remove the exhaust flap it might cure the problem?
    Any help is gratefully received with thanks.

    Hello there,

    Check for loose battery terminal.  :028: Known to cause all sorts of issues exactly like this.

    If you get 3 seemingly unrelated codes 99.9% of the time its to do with some sort of contact issue. I'd check battery first, then the affected parts' connectors, then ecu plug etc. Unlikely to be anything mechanical.

    Gen-1 or Gen-2..?? You don't say which you have.

    What Antares said...quite common for the battery terminals to come loose and cause all sorts of electrical gremlins.

    If you remove the exhaust flap, you will still get a fault code unless it has been mapped out or an "eliminator" has been fitted.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I’ll check the connections tomorrow. Pardon my lack of knowledge but how do I tell if it’s a Gen-1 or Gen-2? It’s a 2017 plate?

    If you have a gen 1 then I had similar issues. Does the servo motor make accesive noise, this could be a sign its on the way out. All 3 sensors are on similar circuit. Likely exhaust servo needs replacing or if have full exhaust a servo buddy. Try to disconnect servo and see if it is better.

    Funny you mention that, my servo went crazy actuating as soon as you turn the ignition on and getting very hot, I decided to unplug it until i found a replacement recently from a mate's Gen 2, but i've never had that issue with the multiple codes and rough running, even with the wacky servo it ran completely fine.

    Thanks again guys. I’ll also try disconnecting the servo like you say and give it a run out and see what happens?

    Can't lose anything by doing that if checking the terminals doesn't fix it, it will throw an engine light that will go off when you reconnect it, it will store a code though, but if you have a gs-911 it's no effort at all to reset it.
