Hey guys.

Just wanted to share what was going on with my 03 RC51. I was riding it Saturday and it was running fine, went to downshift, the bike bogs and then I notice to FI light was on. It did it several more times will riding it home.

Got home jumped on the forums, saw how to check for codes using the jumper wire, and also read some other things to check, one of which was the battery connections.

So I pulled the seat off, jumped the green plug, got an error code for the IAS(?), and then checked the battery connections. Well it seems as though the person I bought the bike from didn't tighten the posi cable to the battery. I could just about remove it with my hand.

So I tightened the cable, jumped on the bike and road it around for about 10 mins, no issues at all. Yesterday I road for about 1 1/2 hrs and didn't have a single issue, so I think that was the problem.

I mention this for a few reasons:

1: The forums are a huge help full of people that know far more than I do.
2: Make sure it is not the simple stuff before you tear down your bike.
3: Wanted to post in case someone else was having the same issue.

Thanks.

So nice to read a thread where the poster took a bit of time to search and research his problem before posting. Kudos.
