    need help GP1200R issue

    hi , a friend of mine has a GP1200R that will beep & show the "engine temperatur symbol" in the display 1s after I hit the starter button, the ski is not even running.

    I replaced the CAT wit a d- plate & CAT sensor chip - still the same issue.

    no performance problem, ski pulls like allways, but the ski is beeping + "engine temperatur symbol" in the display

    thanks in advance

    Check the chip... If it's not secure or if it's bad that's what you'll get. The ski could run fine without it. The best way to check it is to just pull it out and plug in the old probe. It shouldn't beep until the probe heats up. If that happens I would try replacing the chip with the $0.99 Radio Shack part...

    Oh I just reread your post and it sounds like this was going on BEFORE you put the chip on also... Then make sure the the wiring is good that goes into the box. If it's been pulled in and out you never know what could happen. It sounds like it doesn't even know the chip or the probe was there???

    Also check the wiring and connection to battery. And Battery Voltage.

    Isn't there a way to put a 10 ohm resistor in place of the temp sensor to "trick" the CDI into thinking it's there, and allowing you to start the engine? Seem to remember reading that somewhere...

    that year it is easy to bend the prog over when you clip the connections to gether.. I would tell you how I know but I don't like to expose my stupid side...

    then it will beep off and on from time to time or all the time ...

    Bingo. You either have a bad sensor, or the wire is messed up somehow. There are TWO sensors on that pipe.
