    lock code for 98 gp1200

    hi there i have a 98gp1200 and u know u have 3 buttons on the dash to enter ur code
    to start and to lock
    everytime i put the code in to lock the machine still starts and runs
    i was wondering if this is a problem or does it just mean that something else is locked

    thank you

    You might have a Riva CDI. This will eliminate the code.......Well on my ski it did.

    I thought you only put the code in to unlock it. press and hold the menu button to lock it.

    is that right? havent played with one for a while....

    If you have a stock ski you probably have a stock ignition. It is located in the black box where your spark plugs come out.

    no no. In the black box there is the CDI. I got mixed up and thought you have a Riva CDI.

    If in fact you end up locking it and can't remember the code....here's the reset procedures:

    There's a wire up in the front of the ski..pull the front bucket out and look at the wire loom...there will be a single wire with a blue plastic connector. Unplug that connector then hold the mode button on the gauge cluster down after you do so...you can reset any code you want to...just do aaaa and be done with it. Reconnect the blue connector and you're good to go.

    when i lock it it says its locked but the engine still starts and then maybe i tought it would rev up to a certain point and cut off but still nothing happens as if i never locked it
