The art of troubleshooting

I've learned over the years that no matter what you are working on troubleshooting 101 is the same. The first step is to keep it simple and check the obvious first. I've dove over the deep end into the most complicated shit first too many times. Sometimes it still gets me.

Anyway. I'm excited because I picked up an Aprilia RSVR and it was kicking my ass for a couple weeks with some electrical issues and throwing strange codes on the dash. I had to fake the computer on a few things like a tip over switch that was missing and fake it out on the vacuum actuated selenoid flapper doamaflange in the ram air. I also found that the ambient air temp titty thing wasn't even connected. So I just let the fucker run and idle all the way up to temperature and no codes came on (knock on woood right?).

So Barber and Jennings here I come. If the Arilia doesn't work out fuck it I have the SV.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Good to hear that you got that thing going, I'm looking forward to have some good laps with you!
This will be fun, I hope I can hang behind you... the power advantage shouldn't let me down on this one.
