CAN Communication Line Resistance Inspection

In this model, resistors for CAN communication line are built in the ECU [A] and meter unit.

CAN Communication Line Resistance Inspection


CAN Communication Line Resistance (at ECU Connector)

Connections: Terminal 27 ←→ Terminal 28

Standard: 123 125 Ω


CAN Communication Line Resistance Inspection


If the reading is out of the range, replace the ECU (see ECU Removal/Installation).

If the reading is within the range, resistor of the ECU for CAN communication line is normal.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

If the wiring is open, repair or replace the main harness.

Break-in
The first 1 600 km (1 000 mi) that the motorcycle is ridden is designated as the break-in period. If the motorcycle is not used carefully during this period, you may very well end up with a “broken down” instead of a “broken in” motorcycle after a few thousand kilometers. The fol ...

Nozzle Assy Disassembly
Remove the nozzle assy (see Nozzle Assy Removal). Pull out the secondary fuel injectors [A] from the delivery pipe assy [B]. NOTE Do not damage the insertion portions of the injectors when they are pulled out from the delivery pipe assy. NOTICE Never drop the secondary fuel injecto ...

Piston Ring End Gap Inspection
Place the piston ring [A] inside the cylinder (upper crankcase), using the piston to locate the ring squarely in place. Set it close to the bottom of the cylinder, where cylinder wear is low. Measure the gap [B] between the ends of the ring with a thickness gauge. Piston Ring End Gap ...
