    I just got my 990ADV back together. I added the CPR filter and changed the plugs. I was letting it idle so I could check the oil and whatnot (changed the oil as well) and the FI Light started flashing. It looks like I'm getting 7 long flashes and 2 shorts. Any one have this problem or know the code?

    I don't have access to a desk top right now or I would do some digging.... Thanks for the help!

    EDIT: Okay I got home and was able to find it... "stepper motor for 2nd throttle valve"... I'm sure the it's doing this because it is hitting the plate for my air filter... I don't have the secondaries at all so I would like to find a way to just delete that system because the FI light flashing all the time is not going to fly :lol3...

    Any feedback from you guys?

    First don't ride it like that. There is little chance that the stepper will burn out as it will go in a safety mode and then put the ecu in limp mode.
    The engine might cut out on you.

    Call Chris at CPR, they have an updated bottom plate with a recess that fixes that issue.

    Don't ask how I know. But they will take care of you.

    Pm me for more details if you'd like.
