  SE-i /LTD Air Valve
Posted by: jwebfournow - 08-24-2016 11:19 AM - Replies (2)

Been looking on the forum for information on the Air valve for the SE-I- or the LTD models, the valve that has the 2 coolant lines that is mounted on right side top towards the rear of the engine, what does it actually do, and how does it affect the engine performance,, according to sei manual supplement when testing the OHMS it should read 65-100 ohms, mine reads 105, there does not seem to be a lot of information on it other than that. Thanks for any help. Been trying to get the bike dialed in so I can start riding it, I am just not real happy with the performance at idle when it gets warmed up, cold start nice and smooth at higher rpms like it should., when warming it starts to drop down on the rpms like it should, when fully warmed at idle I think it should be smoother. I already did the cleaning of the injector system according to the manual, new plugs checked the wires and sync the banks, this bike sat for a few years, I have Lucas injector cleaner in the fuel right now, it has gotten better since that, kinda leaning towards dirty fuel system still myself, since it has improved, I still want to know about the AIR VALVE setup.

  1985 LTD dies
Posted by: Philroy - 06-09-2016 12:35 PM - Replies (8)

I've been having an issue with my LTD where the Fuel System light comes on and it dies.
Happened the first time late last summer. Took seat off and checked wires and couldn't find anything and then it finally started.
Rode 4 blocks and it did it again. After messing with many connections it started again and I dove home like a bat out of hell (65miles).
Rode it a few times on short distances and it happened a few more times. This time I had my reading glasses and could make out the lights on the computer. Don't rmemeber the exact code, but it related to the air temperature sensor.
Unplugged it, looked it over and plugged it back in. No issues the rest of the year.
Rode the 1200 for the first time last week and went 35 miles. Stopped to look at a car for one of my kids, was there an hour and when I went to leave I got 3 miles down the road, Fuel System light came on and it died running 55mph!
Got off to the side of the road, tried to read the codes on the computer and couldn't see them well enough!
Got under the travel computer, wiggled the wires to the temp sensor and eventually the bike started again and I drove home.
Going to try and work on the bike tonight, but wondering if anyone has experience this before and has some advice.

  Ltd Question HELP
Posted by: 84wngnut - 08-15-2015 10:55 PM - Replies (3)

My newly aquired LTD is a little different than my present one . First off the fuel cap has a hose attached to the center of it . Looks like a evap type hose . I am wondering if it a California issued emission system ? It doesn't start, dont have spark to the plugs .

I checked the ECM and it looks like a PBR sensor fault . Would that cause it not to start ?
Also when I try to start it the fuel system light comes on. One more thing !

The supplement manual says PBR sensor. W solid and 0 blinking open circuit shorted signal wire . Now in the fail safe function it states PBL sensor output is used . When PBL sensor is faulty Ne-0thmap is used for both injection and ignition timing.

Question is , is this a TYPO in the manual ? Or does it mean what it says . You guys that have the factory Limited service supplement page 10-6 . Let me know PLEASE What they are talking about . Thanks

  Voltmeter ???????
Posted by: 84wngnut - 07-22-2015 09:47 PM - Replies (10)

Hey someone refresh my memory . Every since I put the new stator on my LTD the volt meter reads a steady 13.5-7 ( I mean at driving RPMs ) while riding . I hooked up my volt meter to the battery and it reads 14.5-7 . Could it be wiring ? Or the meter I am about to change out the meter since I have a couple more laying around.

Now when I got this bike back in 09 the stator was bad when I bought it . So I don't know if it was doing it then or not . I have no other problems as far as charging or starting . Does anybody have this going on with your bike SEI or LTD

  Stumble just off idle
Posted by: dbduely - 02-14-2015 05:18 PM - Replies (3)

I have 85 ltd just of idle I have a slit stumble once warmed up It runs great cold. It will have a slit ruff running also up to about 50. You twist the throttle it'll take off big time. I have balanced the throttle bodies from side to side, replaced the throttle position sensor, replaced the plugs to no avail. I've pretty much run out of ideas. Anyone out there got any other ideas. .Huh
