    Two things happened this Sunday.

    Background,

    I took the bike in for ignition switch recall.  No issues. 
    Since it was in the shop I had the tires changed-Michelin road 5....brake lines flushed...
    Temp on Sunday was 102 degrees with a heat index of 123 (it was hot and humid)
    I rode for approximately five straight hours...saying that if anyone thinks heat played a role.

    1.  The bike stalled on me five times three at red lights (never happened before) and the instrument panel stated "low voltage".  It seemed to stall in situations when I was feathering the clutch....Never had this issue before.   In addition the red engine light came on.  I just turned the bike off and turned it back on and the red light went off. 

    2.  When it I got home and parked it in the garage, a ticking sound from the rear of the bike, final drive area, persisted for about 5 - 10 minutes.  It almost sounded like a car when it's turned off.

    Just checking to see is any one had this problem before and had an easy explanation before I start digging. 

    BTW, battery should be fine.  I haven't checked the voltage/amps yet.

    Hi Big Country,

    First of all, "the red engine light came on" ..... Which One ?

    There are 3 red warning lights, one for the TPMS system,
    one for Low Oil Pressure, and one for High Engine Coolant Temperature ?

    As I always advise - have you checked for any stored DTC's ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes ) ?

    Servicing Data, Reference Info. & DTC ( Fault ) Codes -
    Scroll down to Reply #8 "Diagnostic Trouble Codes ( DTC's ) / Fault Codes

    Cheers  :821:

    Not yet Coconut, I will today.  I was still getting my energy levels back yesterday (humidity kills me) and after work I hit the rack.   Thanks BC

    It was the TPMS light.  Sorry for not responding sooner.   The dealer used a tool to measure the battery/sensors...said I needed new ones.  I'm going to wait until I change the tires again.  I can read the levels in my cockpit.  I have the proper levels of air.  And, I'm used to watching my tire pressure anyway.

    bigcountry. You might find that the ticking sound coming from the rear of your bike was the exhaust cooling down after your long hot ride. Not uncommon to hear that noise from cars or bikes.  :028:

    Hi again,

    At least that Red Light isn't something more serious ! :028:

    I'd recommend checking, next time the tires come off,
    whether the batteries can be replaced on your Sensors -
    there are plenty of Topics in the Forum discussing this,
    and if you can, it will be less of an impact on your wallet !

    Here's a Topic with some information :

    Replace TPMS Batteries

    With regards to the engine running / stalling,
    I would try carrying out the "Engine Adaption" procedure,
    which will cost nothing to do and can reset a few things ....

    • Closed throttle position reference status
    • Twist grip adaptation
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation status ( off idle )
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation range ( off idle )
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation status ( idle )
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation range ( idle )

    The procedure is :
    • Ensure the engine is COLD
    • WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTTLE, Start the engine
      and allow it to warm up until the Cooling Fan comes on.
    • Leave the engine to idle for a further 12 minutes.

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks,

    I will conduct the procedure tonight.  It sounds like a four beer task.

    Break:

    Thanks Hackle, I think you're right.  The heat, after I got home was bad.  I had a hard time getting my shirt off.   I have to reassess my gear.  My camel back, which was a block ice when I left was bone dry when I got home:)

    I followed your guidance last night Coconut.  The temperature is dropping this weekend to 85 and 88 respectively.  I will probably get some smiles in and test the results.  I will do loops around the area in case issues pop-up. 

    Any chance of changing your mind about visiting in Sept?
