Leon Posted May 18, 2006 Share Posted May 18, 2006 Greetings, I've recently nearly completed my second annual on my 2004 RT. I say nearly because I'm unable to comply with the service manual requirement to check the "fault code memory" of the MoDiTeC system. Actually, the bike runs perfectly, at least so far, so I've no reason to suspect anything is wrong, but it would be nice to be able to read the codes. Does anyone know of any after-market code reader that could be used for the RT? Perhaps one of the many aftermarket automobile units? An unrelated issue: As I stated above I had just completed my 2nd annual which involveed replacing the wheel circuit fluids. I did so just as I had done last year, along with the clutch and control circuit, but when I took the bike for a test ride afterwards I had a persistent ABS error signal! Panic! Even though the brakes seemed perfectly normal, I was quite distressed! I had no idea what I could have done wrong. I then repeated the entire procedure for the wheel circuits and again took the bike for a ride with the same damn error signal shining brightly. Damn! I then discovered that one cause of the light is low fluid in either reservoir. Of course neither reservoir actually had low fluid, so I checked the sending unit on the top of the reservoir. One unit indicated low fluid even though the fluid was full! Upon further inspection I discovered that the float inside the reservoir had actually stuck in the bottom position. I reached in with a (clean) paperclip and was able to gently "pop" the float free of whatever was holding it to the bottom of the reservoir. Problem solved!!! Moral: don't let the fluid get too low when doing the fluid change! Whew! Leon Link to comment
