I Ride: Hyperstrada, Transalp & Fireblade
Check Engine Light - on for 10 seconds after starting

I suspect this has something to do with the way I've disconnected the exhaust flapper, as it seems to go off the first time I close the throttle after first moving away from standstill after I start the bike.

I've never seen in come on outside of these conditions. Has anyone else experienced this?

I wonder if it is due to the cable becoming snagged as I did't fully remove it. Now that it's out of warranty I will but I'm incredibly short on time lately.

Is it true that you can pull the entire servo and cable without the bike throwing a CEL?

I have disconnected my flapper both mechanically and then unplugged it. Never once got a light or error on the dash.

try unplugging the actual servo motor under the seat? On 821s it won't throw any CELs.

Thanks guys. Is the cable reasonably easy to remove completely?

I tell ya, I've really come to dislike exhaust flappers, absolute PITA. They cause me (metaphorical) headaches.

I removed mine completely just to clean it up and give one less thing to fail. It doesn't weigh much so you won't even notice it.
