R1 Help!!!!

On behalf of Sifu because it's his R1.

The battery died in his R1 so he went out and got a new battery. We installed said battery, hooked the power commander up everything looked good to go.

The first time we fired the bike up the check engine light was on, but it was running, but it didn't have any throttle. Twisting the grips rendered nothing.

So I rechecked everything (with us both catching a little sparks once) installing and removing over and again trying to figure out what's up.

We rechecked everything twice, three times with no avail. Now the bike won't run at all. It will fire and sputter if the starter button is kept depressed.

The power commander has power, everything is the way it should be but it simply won't fire and if it does it stays running for about 1-2 seconds before drying with no throttle control.

The only thing I can think of is we maybe popped a TPS fuse or something somewhere. But it was a simple battery install. And the SOB ran before we put the new one in off of the car. Throttle, no engine light...good to go.

Can anyone offer any help?

did you charge the battery fully before you put it in?

From what Todd said it was a race-ready battery fully mixed ready to go 100%...but...It's Todd after all.

i would double check the connections and where they terminate and put it on a 1 amp trickle charger for 4 or 5 hours and see what you have then....even new batteries can be low or bad....

There seemed to be plenty of cranking power. I'll put it on a trickle tonight when I get over to Todds.

I know it's silly, but double check to see that you put the battery in correctly. You can lay it on one side and the positive is on the right side, turn it over and it fits but the positive is on the incorrect side.

Also, you mentioned that it ran off of the car? Was the car running? Please, elaborate as you can mess up a lot of stuff if the car was running.

If the battery is indeed wired correctly, I would disconnect the power commander. Don't forget, besides the four injector plugs, there is also one large plug that needs to be swapped.

the bike was running and the throttle didnt work? Is it an electric throttle body? if so check those connections and fuses. if not, check the cable to see if its broken and letting the throttle bodies stay shut.. not sure if that helps, but it might

Check your manual on the bike and the PC maybe there is a reset sequence you need to go through.

The car was turned off.

The battery is installed correctly. Everything works properly..aside from the engine not running and having no throttle.

Saturday I'm going to pull the fuses and check them and all the relays and also pull the power commander. We'll see how it goes.

It's a 2007, right?

I think I have a manual if you need it. Do the secondary butterflies open and close when you turn the key to the on position? (You should hear them). Also, do you here the fuel pump kick-on?

When you say you "installed said battery, hooked the power commander up", what do you mean? The power commander was not on there before, or you mean you reconnected the ground wire for the power commander to the neutral side of the battery only?

Yes, it's a 2007.

Yeah, the butterflies go, fuel pump..all that.

No, the PC3 was already on there, just hooked it all back up.

I think we've got it down to bad fuel. We'll know tomorrow night for sure as I'm tearing into this .
