    Oil temperature sensor
    malfunction, wiring open or
    short
    The ECU sets the oil temperature
    at 60°C.
    The ECU slows down the engine
    speed less than 3 000 r/min (rpm)
    by controlling the ignition.
    75
    Main (ECU) relay and system
    relay malfunction, wiring is
    open or relay is stuck

    these are the service manual possible faults..

    Sounds to me like the sensor is dead or disconnected , its in the sump pan ,

    Waz

    I googled temp sensor but keep coming up with the R&D interface. Do you know if I can find the wiring to a plug? I wonder if I can jump the plug. If I can't I guess I'd have to pull the motor to get the pan off and replace it huh.

    , from memory its a white 2 pin connector near RH side front of the inlet manifold

    it goes down to the front of the sump from memory
    near the dip stick tube

    yes I found it right where you said just next to the dipstick doesn't seem to much trouble to get to. I tried jumping it but still got the fault. I guess ill order one on Tuesday swap it out and see what happens.

    So I swapped the oil temp sensor with the temp sensor that is in the I/C the oil T warning went away and then i got an FI warning. do you think I could swap them and ride with a FI warning? till tuesday when I can order one? Kinda want to use the Ski this weekend for the holiday.

    I assume you are talking about the oil temp sensor in the oil pan? I didn't actually pull it out, I wasn't sure if I would fill the hull with royal purple if I pulled it lol. I just pulled the sensor out of the I/C and hooked it up as it laid on the head. I found a pic of the oil pan and noticed that the sensor actually sits on a cavity so i want to pull it out and swap it but will I still end up in limp mode? also what kind of grease should I use?
