Riva controller beware !!!
Recently I was helping a friend install some goodies to his 06 GPR. We did the basic VF-3s, keyway, Jetworks, Jims plate, air mods and such. When we got it all together and started it on the hose, we got a check engine lamp flashing 54-stepping motor malfunction.
Did all the basic checks, made sure all connectors were plugged in, and still the same 54. After further investigation, the Riva controller (brand new) had a wire partially out of the main connector causing an open circuit to the idle control motor.
Anyway, after checking 2 other controllers, this one had a different type of rubber type seal holding the wiring into the connector than 2 others I examined. These type of connectors usually have a tab on the metal female piece that lock to the connector body. His did not lock in place. The wires were just shoved in and held in by the blue rubber seal, and half of them were not all the way in the connector.
I would advise everyone to go and check their controllers to see if you have this one. It could cause some trouble down the road for you.

I had a Riva trued and welded GP1200 crank that lasted 2 hours before one of the rods broke in half and destroyed the rest of the engine in entirety..
I can just say I am glad I was 2000+ miles from the retail store!! I would have been in jail otherwise.
