06 gp1300r overheat override resistor question
my 06 has that lovely overheat warning that was coming up,
a local guy had a 2.2K resistor, already soldered in, that I bought, installed fine and worked for a couple of rides.
now, if I turn off the machine, 80% of the time i'm immediately getting the overhead warning, but if I shut down and restart immediately, it goes away, but will come back if I stop and take a break then start up again.
a) its not a 2.2 resistor ( I didn't verify, it was all soldered & heat shrinked in)
b) the resistor went bad & I need to make a trip to Radio shack & get a buddy to solder it for me.
c) something else ?
for all practical purposes, would option B, be my first choice, solder it in, & plug it back in and see if problem goes away?
or just as a precaution, is there perhaps something else I should be concerned about / look into just to be safe.
sorry, bored at work (slow week) so I just thought i'd make sure i'm not overlooking something else that I should be looking over.

2.2k resistor is what I put on my 06 1300r 3 yrs ago and never had a problem. Maybe a bad connection?

plan b, replace then check again seems to be the obvious choice, I guess i'll start there first, should have b4 I started the thread, but was curious if there might be anything else that i should look at while poking around.

Not all the gpr's respond or need the resistor.
Put a 10K in there and you shouldn't have any problems....
atleast I don't.

is the overheat warning for engine temp or exhaust temp?
