    it keeps calibrating and after couple of mins it says check manual? Could it be my battery is dead? Charged it for 10 hours and I still get calibrating cycle. My bike is 2013 and original battery. When I put my battery tender green light goes on, could it be something else? Thanks for your help! Chico :440:

    chico,

    "it keeps calibrating" - Do you mean the TES ( Suspension ) ?

    "can t start bike" - Do you mean the engine won't start ?


    The TES system Calibrates itself after a certain number of engine starts ( 50 ? ),
    and if the Calibration process is not completing this could indicate a fault with
    one of the components in that system ( including the Main battery ! ).

    If your battery Tender is indicating that the Battery is GOOD,
    and the engine won't start, check the two battery terminals are clean and tight,
    and also check the connections to the Starter Solenoid,
    which have been known to get knocked loose !
    ( Forward of the Main Battery but hidden away under the edge of the plastic surround ).

    It would help if you describe exactly what happens when you hit the Starter button.

    Also check for any Diagnostic Trouble Codes that may have been stored.

    Cheers  :821:

    Having done a bit more research on this - I recalled a similar problem where another Member
    had the exact same Warning message and his Trophy would not start !

    This WAS due to a faulty battery, that had been drained by the well publicised
    Software bug preventing the XM Radio system ( only fitted to US and Canada export market )
    from shutting down when the Ignition was switched off, and draining the Main battery.

    This is the previous Topic : TES Warning Check Manual

    If you don't know whether you had the Software update to fix this
    Battery drain problem then you must check - it is easy to do :

    The radio should be OFF when the Ignition is turned ON ( but don't start the engine ).
    If the Radio is ON, turn it OFF ( Volume all the way down to Minimum, Mute and then OFF ),
    then turn the Ignition OFF and back ON again.
    Press and hold the "P" button until the "DIAGNOSTICS" menu is displayed.
    Scroll to the S/W VERSION item, and press the handlebar Select ( "i" ) button.

    You must have Version 1.04E -
    If it's 1.04A this is the previous version that must be updated !
    The Dealer should carry out this update if needed, at no cost.

    The best way IMO to properly check the battery's health is to fully charge it then check it with a load tester.  I prefer to use a standalone load tester with the battery removed but you can still test it installed with a multimeter.

    well I tried all the steps Mr coconut said and no luck. I cannot do anything when calibration is on. I ordered a new battery and as soon as I get it will let you know. It s getting cold up here in Montreal so will be storing it soon.i will also call my dealer for some answers, maybe they did something with update??? :006:
