Thread: Need help.....

Ok guys My friend needs some help. he has a 2000 xr1800 and one motor shuts down on its own. He did some normal service and sat on the sensor that goes in the exhaust and now it shuts down. So the question is if that sensor in damaged or bad could it cause this shutting down problem. If not what else could cause this....

Pimpn are these the powervalve motors in the 00? if so the exhaust cat sensor which I am assuming you are mentioning could be causing you a problem.

Yes it has PV's, They could cause one engine to shut off? or just power down?
I looked at the sensor myself and it looks fine (pulled sheathing back) no cut or broken wires.
Thanks for the help!

Dan my experience has been with the skis and not the boats but the base platform is the same. I know that with the sensor unplugged on the ski it caused all kind of issues with the display unit and it would not run.

you could can use a cat chip Protec riva and R&D all have them.

Assuming it's the sensor...
Does the boats have the catalytic converters in them like the gpr's? If so, you could easily have a blown cat, stopping up the exhaust.
Also, looking at a sheath on a sensor does not mean it's in working order. You need to test it.

how do you test it? I would assume a ohm meter? do you have the values?
