I just tried to start my '10 s1k yesterday, it turned over, then stopped, and showed that VDS! error. i checked the sensor, and it was still in the proper cradle. I thought maybe the battery was low or something, charged it, still wouldn't start. I see someone else on the forum had this problem with a blown fuse. The #2 4A Cutoff Relay, diagnosis plug fuse. I checked, and all fuses are fine though. only electrical thing i've done was installed a V1, and that was right after i got the bike, so that's not a recent change.
I'm trying to avoid waiting here for the road side service to pick it up and take it 5 miles to the dealer for them to check it out if i can fix myself. i just hate to spend $140 for a new sensor for a warrantied bike, especially if that's not it.
anyone have one of those caps that came from the factory that shorted out that sensor plug they might sell so i could try to maybe confirm it's the sensor or find anything else i might try? i notice when i unplug the sensor from the plug, the time and range show up on the dash too, plug it back in, and just VDS!.
any other ideas??
