Larry, your not gonna believe this, but i don't know how to use a volt meter nor know how to perform the tests even though the book shows it. i hate electrical work, i suck at it. i would have to have someone help me with it. the bike has spent the last 2 months with an electrical technician, and after him doing tests on the sensor and wiring the bike back to the way its supposed to be, this is what he told me was wrong with it. he said "the computer is throwing out trouble codes for the Tw sensor. it should be replaced, otherwise your gonna have a lot of problems starting it up when the motor is cold". and this is exactly whats happening. im gonna try to get my friend over here to give me a hand with the test procedures for the Tw sensor.
once the bike warms up to normal operating temperature, it runs perfectly. i also checked the trouble codes against what it shows in the electrical service manual and the guy is correct. only other problem im having is my "fuel system" light is lit on my dash. one thing at a time. first the Tw sensor, then deal with the "fuel system" light.
