    Fixed my limp mode problem and now runs great!

    Well after finding out that low fuel puts my 900 into limp mode I fixed it by putting the 33 ohm resistor in the box to trick the low fuel problem. (Thanks K447) It got rid of my low speed bog that I have had forever. stupid me You can now slam the throttle and away you go. I noticed on the data sheet that when the 96 sl900 goes into limp mode it retards timing affecting takeoff acceleration and max speed is reduced. I never had a problem with the high speed still could hit 58 on the gps at 6400 rpms. But man did it ever screw with my acceleration!! Just want to say thanks for all the help that I get from this site.

    Would that resistor be considered jet ski viagra?

    So if you put the 33ohm resistor in line, do you lose your fuel level on the MFD?

    How about getting a new fuel float and fixing the gauge?

    The resistor makes the mfd read full all the time. I have always just looked under the seat to check fuel level. I might look at fixing it one day.

    Its pretty easy to do. Should take less than an hour. About 30 bucks for the part..

    I cannot stand having the red lamp blinking away. I always prefer to get things fixed properly, rather than rigging the fuel indicator with the resistor.

    That said, I understand the usefulness of being able to get the RPM limiter out of the way so the machine can be further diagnosed or just ridden until the fuel sender is repaired.

    I was rather surprised to see the low fuel warning activating limp mode on the 96, they obviously removed it on the 97 cdi. I wonder what the rationale behind low fuel limp mode was are you really going to get that much further running in limp mode?
