Thats because the servo is still connected....so as far as the bike is concerned the servo is still working....I have a full system on the 08 6r too....but because the servo is only mechanically disconnected the ECU still thinks it is opening and closing the butterfly valve in the exhaust, so electrically nothing has changed

damn i would never fork out 110 bucks for such a simple circuit. I'd throw my servo back in before I bought that...that's a total rip off.

Go under your seat, disconnect the servo and see how long it'll take for the FI light to come on....

This may be a dumb question, but is there harm just leaving the servo connected?

That's all I did. I pulled the wires to the valve and left everything else connected. Haven't noticed anything erratic..

You can remove the cables completely and just leave the servo installed... the bike's ECU won't know any wiser! But as soon as you physically remove the servo, the FI light will light up, informing you there's a system fault. Hence installing a servo buddy to fool the on-board computer that everything is OK.

You can think of this DIY servo buddy as a 'circuit terminator', nulling the signals being sent by the ECU.

Doing so will free up some space, enough to install a PC3/5 and make the bike 100g lighter.

plus if your servo were to give out you wouldnt have to worry about it.

lol exactly...

but after doing more testing yesterday I've gathered a little more info on the thing. It seems that it only works once (when i first plug it in) if i turn the bike off and turn it on again it won't work and the FI light comes on.

I ohmed it out when it was working and was getting 4.46k ohms, when it wasn't working 4.36k ohms. I'm going to purchase an axial lead capacitor today after work to see if that has any difference...i kind of doubt it, but I guess we'll see...

I'll keep you guys posted.

yea the servo buddies are 60 bucks...but i want the satisfaction of figuring this thing out. Worse comes to worse ill get a servo buddy test it, if it works, ill cut the heat shrink off and see what its got under there, then i'll rewrite the how to.

I'm currently getting help from someone on the zx10r forums

exactly. i would rather play with circuts and try to get it to work. do you think that the capacitor isnt discharging maybe? just a shot in the dark. been a while since i messed with electronics in vo-tech classes in high school. lol

lol yea...and its not like u can screw nething up doing it either!

I was thinking there was a problem with the cap. but iv tried 3 different ones lol. My dad is an electronics repair guy...its even got him stumped.

He said that he doesn't get to be as involved with the parts like he used to be back in the day. now a days parts are so cheap and small, they just order a whole new board for 1 capacitor being blown out.

Well this is going to become a new project. Even the guys on the ZX-10r forums are stumped. Guess I'll start playing around with it.

If anyone does this one and it works, please let us know.
