MoTeC RPM Sensor Follow up Questions
Thanking for advising me on the forum as to what might be the problem with my RPM's not working anymore. Since then, I have unplugged the sensor. I believe I have the correct sensor. I unplugged the one in the picture below with the RED arrow. I left it unplugged for about 23 hours. I just went to plug it back in and I fired up the motor. The RPM gauge still does not work. The RPM gauge when I first start it goes all the way to 8,000 RPM's like it always does then comes back down to zero, but normally after that starting process it registers at 1450 RPM's or so. Should I let it stay unplugged longer. I thought I had some compressed air around the house I could spray to try and dry it out more. I don't feel any moisture when I touched the sensor. If the sensor is no longer functioning, is this something easy to replace? And what type of costs are involved?
Thank you for your help. I don't plan on taking it on the water until I get this fixed. When you said other alarms may not be working, it got me worried. I know the fuel alarm works.

1. There is nothing wrong with the crank sensor or its connector as the engine is still running
2. Does this have a MoTeC on it or not?
If yes then find the KTC and check out its connector and the KTC itself
If you find nothing and can get yours hands on another KTC then that would be worth a crack.

Yes my Yamaha FZR has a MoTeC on it. I have located the KTC. I unplugged it. I did not feel any moisture. If I need to replace the KTC and connector, do I go thru my dealer here in California (Nils)? Is it the actual black KTC box or the entire KTC + Connector? What type of costs am I looking at?

Can you send a known good start file at the ECU to make sure the configuration for the comms is correct.
Next thing is to remove the adapter loom and check all the connectors there, then see if Nils has a spare KTC in stock that he might lend you.
Let me know how you get on.

I think I am going to take some gorilla tape and make my own seal around the KTC unit so that water has less of a chance to get inside. I am also going to locate it right on top of the bulkhead wall just above the ECU so that water has less of a chance of getting to it. In addition, I am going to make sure the unit is secured so that the wire that goes into it is pointing down, so water cannot trickle into the KTC unit. I would recommend all MoTeC Marine owners to pay attention and take extra steps to protect the KTC unit.
