Krtc problems
on: July 05, 2019, 10:50:33 AM
Hi got on my bike other day and krtc and power modes started flashing along with engine light. Looked through forum and found this.


Once the cause has been fixed, the warning can be reset by by doing the following 3 times: 
1. Run the engine more than 10 minutes.
2. Keep the idling speed more than 30 seconds.
3. Run the vehicle more than 5 minutes at a speed of 25 km/h (16 mph) or more.
4. Turn the ignition switch off.

My question is this. If I run engine for more than 10 minutes why do I have to run at idle for more than 30 seconds(step 2)  as engine has been idling for 10 minutes as step 1.

A bit confused.

Sorted.

Here's what I did.

Started bike and let it idle for 15 minutes.
Then went 20mph and above for 5 minutes.
Stopped and turned off ignition and took key out.

Repeated above 3 times and all back to normal.

Now to get code 62 deleted from bike. Dealer I think.

Hope this helps anyone

My KRTC/Engine lights came on a couple of weeks ago.  Took bike to the Dealer and they said they didn't know why the lights came on and just reset them.  The other day they came on again.  By the time I could get the bike back to the Dealer they went off again.  The Dealer said they can only diagnose the problem if the lights are still on.  They said some reasons the light might go on was if you oil the chain with the engine running and the rear wheel spinning or popping a wheelie.  Hadn't done either of those things.  The lights came on just cruising down the highway at 70MPH both times.  Any one else had this issue or any suggestions?

Haven't seen it on Versys but have had similar on FJRs. Something to do with the traction control sensing the rear wheel is getting out of step with front. In those cases the bike had been run in gear on the centre stand. Yamaha had to reset.

Spinning wheel on gravel, wet surface or wheelies would no doubt give a similar conflict.

but these are the conditions that ktrc should work in. So it shouldn't give you some error.

I oil the inside run of my chain (bike on centre stand) with the engine in first gear spinning the back wheel and then run it in second or even third to push the oil through it. Done this for the last 4 years and not had any KTRC or ABS lights ever come on (yet!!).
2015 Versys 1000- 95,000 miles, 1 frayed starter circuit wire, 10 shims (over two checks), 7 rear tyres, 8 front tyres, 11 oil changes, 2 sets of plugs, 2 air filter, 10 fork seals,  1 set of head race bearings, 3 chain and sprocket sets, 4 screens, 5 pairs of front brake pads, 2 pair of rear pads (old ones wouldn't' wear out) 10 washes and counting.

I agree. Perhaps it is when there is no movement at all on the front at same time? Just what Yamaha dealer said when they checked why lights had triggered the first time it happened. Can't remember whether we couldn't get engine management light to reset initially hence visit to dealer.

Check that you ABS rings are clean, as any clogged up gaps in the rings may throw up a spurious fault code now and then  :027:

Had this same problem on recently on my car  :125:

It has happened to me three times now.
The first time I took it to the dealer and they told me that it is usually due to a dirty sensor. They cleaned it for me and told me to ride it about 5 miles, stop, turn it off and back on and it should cure it.I did as instructed and it did.
Given this, I now carry a thin piece of plastic with a piece of material wrapped around it that I can slip in between the sensor and rotor and clean it
It has happened to me twice again during rides in the mountains, and I think it may due to riding on dirt. Both times I pulled over, cleaned the sensors and kept on riding. I then had to cover about 50 miles with about 8 stops and starts before the fault turned off.
I am assuming that it's not a problem to continue riding with the fault, thinking that all that has happened is that I no longer have traction control so just need to be aware of that.
