    Re: Error Code 12?

    The most effective thing you can do is to lift the tank and exercise the connectors. While they're apart, look for broken pins, corrosion, pins pushed out.

    You'll find the wires on the right side of the bike leaving that kinda oval shaped cover below the cylinder. It has just two wires Gray & Black/Blue. Locate the connector and try to measure it as defined below.


    CHECKING THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR
    1. Disconnect:
    Crankshaft position sensor coupler (from the wire harness)
    2. Check:
    Crankshaft position sensor resistance
    Out of specification → Replace the crankshaft position sensor.

    Crankshaft position sensor
    248372 Ω at 20C (68F)

    a. Connect the pocket tester (Ω 100) to the crankshaft position sensor coupler as shown.

    b. Measure the crankshaft position sensor resistance.
    Positive tester probe
    Gray 1
    Negative tester probe
    Black 2

    ** However - just because it ohms out correctly, doesn't mean it'll work. It still needs to change states when the crankshaft rotates. Because it's only two wires I'd speculate the amplifier is built into the ECM.

    Re: Error Code 12?

    Thanks everyone,

    I hope it will be simply just disconnecting and connecting the battery again.

    The bike is home, and I will try troubleshooting the more simple things once I get back from work. My battery has been failing the past week or two, meaning that it cannot hold a charge in traffic. I have had to push start my bike a number of times, and has even died in traffic at times, which I thought was happening again. The battery was just replaced 6 months ago after expereincing the same symptoms (not holding charge) and had no issues since then until recently.

    Someone had mentioned that my Voltage Regulator needed to be replaced because I may have damaged it during several jump starts from a car while the car's motor was running. So not being able to provide enough battery power may have contributed to other areas of the bike.

    I ended up taking the 1600 Roadster Cruiser after I got the bike home. I stopped to get fuel because the fuel light was on, find out I didn't receive the fuel key. Now I'll probably run out fuel on the way back home.

    Not a good day.

    Based from Motogiro's part index (#21), the pictured area of the sensor is on the left side of the motor. I'm confused on where I would check the crankshaft position sensor. And the pocket tester, is it included?

    I don't know why but I think it's should be depicted on the right side of the bike.

    Don't know why Ron Ayers shows it that way. Nobody wants to pay the CAD guy anymore.

    You'll see a wire with a rubber boot exiting the case low and to the rear of the case. That wire should feed up and plug into a plug under the tank.

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Re: Error Code 12?

    Kenny,

    This procedure does say oil so it looks like you have to dump the oil. The plug is #1 and the crankshaft position sensor is #5 The rotor is #6.

    At least if this component has failed it's better than a code that you can clear and dealing with an unknown intermittent. It will still catch up with you later so better a found failure and repair.

    Looks like the crankhaft position sensor is mounted to the large cover. Hope your oil change is near due.

    See attached.

    Hey, I can help you with that.

    But seriously check all the connectors and what not around it like mentioned before. Hopefully something just vibrated loose or pin backed out. I've seen stranger things on little screaming 600s and it always sucks taking off covers.

    I thought code 12 was the "Mercy! Please do some maintenance" code? j/k

    Good luck getting it sorted.
