Question about 2008 Buell 1125R

Electronic throttle overide

Under the air box on the 1125r/cr there is an electric soleniod that can overide the hand throttle. Remus calls it a Bowden soleniod. any one got any info about it. is it for safety or does it limit the throttle when i go wide open?. buell was very slick with their spring and cable selection because when i overide it by hand i cant feel a diffrence in the twist throttle.

Think it's in case of an accident. when bike is on it's side it will cut off the throttle action so nothing (you) won't get stuck between the wheel sprocket/belt.,,

Want to locate Transmission range sensor

this is easy, there are only 2 electrical connectors on trann
one is the shift soleniods , in side.
the other is the shifter. PRNDL, prindle.
the PRNDL is on the the lever that shifts the actual transmission
car is under warranty, why fiddle?
you shift, and the PRNDL switch simply tells the PCM what you did.
nothing more. it also runs the Reverse lamps. or any FSM for car.
2nd google hit. plain english , see part 20

btw , go to any dealer on line , click parts, and look at all parts
you can see all parts and buy them if need.

P0508 code on 2001 Honda CR-V how do I troubleshoot


P0508 = Idle Air Control System Circuit Low

Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) - Engine hard to start - Rough or erratic idle speed.

Dirty throttle body - Electric throttle control actuator misadjusted or damaged - Faulty Electric throttle control actuator - Intake air leak - Poor electrical connection to the Intake Air Control (IAC) valve.

If there are no intake leaks, clean throttle body, adjust engine idle and erase engine code. If the code comes back you may have to replaced the Electric Throttle Control Actuator (Motor) to repair the problem.

I hope this helps!

I have forgotten my code number to the safe and cannot access my safe. Is there any way to overide this?

The definition of a safe is that there is no way to override the code. Only way I would know to get into it is to use an electric or pneumatic grinder to access the contents.

Dieing out

have 04 polaris predator 500 doing the same thing, when giving full throttle it seems to be hitting a limiter a couple of 1000 rpm below full rpm, but will only start with air box disconnected from carby and spitting gas out, might be buggered T.P.S unit have bought new Keihin Flat CR carby with T.P.S on it so to replace one on thumb throttle as it has taken some knocks ( should be able to test T.P.S with volt meter when pushing the throttle), a cdi unit and coil will see how that goes.
