    Shouldnt need the light fuse out as it was built before lights always on was made law so the lights are off until turned on, i see my aprillia the lights dont come on until the bike starts which is handy
    But i have a charger on it constant so shouldnt run low

    I've noticed on my RS that if the throttle closed position/air bleed, CO trim and stepper position isn't set up correctly than the mixture can vary enormously as the engine warms up, even with a correctly operating stepper. The first time I set it up with the airbleeds fully closed and the throttles very close to closed (used the piece of paper trick) and as the engine got hot (e.g. in traffic) it went so rich that it would cut out all by itself at idle, though the stink from the exhaust was a bit of a giveaway.



    Form memory it flashes green during the initial handshaking with the ECU and then turns solid green when connected.

    Thanks Mike not overly smelling of unburnt fuel

    Thank you for all the replies

    Its looking like a sesor issue, Just wondered the best place to get a sensor, once i can prove which one, im guessing theyre generic like bosh etc

    thanks for all the advice, still cant get to the bottom of it, i contacted my local Benelli dealer they eventually came back to me, but advised as its pre china they havent got the tools or know how to deal with it

    So i called Bennetts today and it goes up there tomorrow, didnt want to start stripping the bike as ive got too many bikes in the garage and having one in bits wouldnt work, ill be happier if the proffessionals play with it anyway
    i think Matts going to do the work, the tornado expert

    Well the LE is on the mend, all be it waiting for parts, Matt at Bennetts has done a brilliant job finding the problems, i think the thing to be learnt is if you get recovered dont let the RAC try and fix it, the excess oil that i advised the RAC man not to add has been forced out on to the clutch plates, so all the minor seals in the clutch had to be replaced, the bike never had an oil leak before but is now seeping from the oil pressure switch, causing it to fail
    The main fault was the crank sensor, that wont show as faulty even if id have got Tune ECU connected, so two new sensors and a new clutch pack






    Thanks to Bennetts for Matt's skills at finding the problems quickly and advising what was needed

    Result!!! Hopefully not too expensive a repair as well, although the clutch pack might cost a bit.
