Re: Engine swap
new engine is fitted now but it wont tick over and is throwing up fault code 62 check engine light is on as is the traction control light, all power mode lights flashing as is the 123 traction control. looked up the fault code and its the subthrottle valve actuator. when i took off the air box to check the valve opens when i turn on the key but when it comes back to the closed position the valve jutters like its hits the stop. if anyone has any suggestions that could help or a way to clear the code

The sensor for the throttle positioner sounds like it needs alignment.

The shop manual for your bike is available on this site for free. Download it, you should be able to find the troubleshooting matrix, and the calibration procedure.

This is the fault code that is thrown up the valves open and when they return to closed position they jitter like they are hitting the stop around 4-5 times

.... so, get a multimeter, and check the resistance like the manual says.

Doesn't matter how cheap it is, so long as it reads resistance (Ohms). If there's a fault between the two sets of pins you need to measure, it will be obvious.

If the resistances both read in the 5-8 Ohm range like they're talking about, there could be some physical obstruction on the linkage that is blocking it from going all the way to one of the end points. That's what you seem to be describing. But you really need to get the numbers so you aren't just guessing on this.

did you get a second set of throttle bodies with the second engine?

No I'm using the ones from the old engine but i didn't have the code 62 problem before. I know they will need to be synchronized but that wont help the code 62 which is to do with the air intake butterfly

The sibthrottle valves do some weird movements when u first turn the key. After starting the engine, they will start working normally.

A code 62 should not prevent the engine from starting. Code 62 is easily fixed by just replacing the subthrottle assembly with a used one, which can be found for fairly cheap on ebay.

I think your main problem from keeping the bike from starting is something else though.

New throttle bodies solved the problem
RJ2112 and jd41 like this.
