Help with error codes??? C14 and C42

in the process of a motor swap (04 gix 600 into 00' frame)

The FI light comes on and flashes as soon as i turn on the ignition. I put it in dealer mode and i come up with C14(throttle position, and C42(ignition)

Well in the service manual it says that for C14, you use the little dash on the LCD read out to indicate if the TPS is in the correct position when the motor is at 1300 rpm. Well being as this motor has not even started yet i would assume i ignore that and adjust it later as needed.

Now for the C42
this refers to the "Ignition switch signal (IG switch signal)" says the manual. I am using the old ignition switch which is from a 2000 gix 6. Is there really a difference between the 04 and the 00 ignition switch besides the plug? What can i do to make this old ignition switch work? i would rather use it as it bolts straight up to the tripple clamp whereas the 04 does not...

The later model switches have a resistor inside that feed reduced current to the ECU.
Double check your wiring but you'll probably need a late model switch to get rid of that code.

As far as the TPS, when in dealer mode the TPS should be at the center position onthe LCD. You can check it without the bike running.

However it sounds more along the lines of either the TPs is bad or the wiring circuit is not good. Check continuity all through the circuit and verify that the TPS is good.

It sounds like you've got a reasonable handle on what's going on, but If you need more help, give me a shout tomorrow at the shop and I'll walk you through a few things.

well the entire motor has 4800 miles. Why would a tps go bad that quickly? Also i know it hasnt moved from before. There is a white line drawn on the tps and on the housing where the tps mount, thus showing that they are inline and that it hasnt been adjusted since that marker was put on there.

I dont know if ill have time to work on it today but i still may do what i originally said i would do and bring it in to your shop and have you work out the kinks. I am still waiting on parts and ill get that ignition switch too.

Would either of thse two codes prevent it from starting? the TPS i dont think so, but the ignition makes me think that the ECU is killin the spark as a "anti theft" measure.

Thanks like always patrick

Suzuki's have always had trouble with the TPS switches. Many people have had to replace the part. The line that Patrick is refering to is the dash line on the speedo itself. It needs to be right in the middle of the code. Like this -C14. If it is like this _C14 or like this ¯C14 then it needs to be adjusted.

just wait until the servo motor that actuates the secondary butterflyin the throttle bodies goes out. suzuki replaced a lot of throttle bodies because they dont sell the servo seperate
