Yo0 Guys my Bike just throws this code randomly this weekend and i hear a small bit of ticking in my motor now. I have 16K on the Odo though. Should i take it in to get a tune up and a retune for the Power Commander?

Re:

The Code was for my secondary butterfly Valve is all i was told i didnt personally right the numbers down. As far as the maintence goes.... Not sure you even wanna know... I been getting my oil changes every 1500 Miles and fluid swaps and what not. But i havent taken it to an actual place to be takin apart and looked at for my 15k.

for 15k you shouldnt really need a shop to look at it just regular oil changes and brake inspections etc.... if your geting a code about your secondary butterfly valves thats the second set that are mechanically controlled for smoothing out throttle response.... if your in warranty i would bring the bike in to a kawi shop

i thought the secondary ones where there electronically controlled ones?
i may very well be wrong here. so its more of a question on my part than a statement.

you are correct, i wrote my post wrong the secondary ones are controlled by the electronic motor

but still get that puppy into the shop and get it checked out.

FWIW I've heard that taking those out helps with power delivery a ton. I've never read much about it and will probably do some research at some point. But just tossing that out there..
