I have a 2012 Monster 1100 Evo myself and have recently installed the EvoTech Tail Tidy. Installation was a breeze with this thread and I too did not remove the infamous 4 bolts. I did not unhook the exhaust servo cable but did rotate the motor a bit. However, I marked it's original location with a sharpie. No CEL so far.

I must agree I was a little skeptical about installing mod after reading about so many issues but it's actually a relatively mod. If anyone needs help and live around the Bay Area, I'll gladly help.

Thanks for these instructions: installation was a breeze. And I did remove the bolts in step 8, it makes it so much easier.

So I installed my Evo Tech tidy tail last night and now I am getting the EXVL code. Must have triggered it when I disconnected the exhaust valve motor.
Any suggestions for clearing the CEL by making adjustments?

It's just finicky. Move it around and try to adjust the position before you bolt everything back up. I had to go to the dealer for mine.

I have been moving the hex shaped part on the exhaust valve motor where the cable goes into around to adjust tightness. Is that what you are referring to? Set it up like in this pic I attached and still got code...

No, just above that looks like where the end of the cable connects to the motor for the exhaust valve. I'd tinker with that. It should be a small cylindrical tip that fits into a round slot.

Hmm, not sure what to tell you. When I took my bike to the dealer, they made some sort of adjustment after they ran a diagnostic and it was good as new. Only took a few minutes. Since your bike is new, I'd ask your dealership...they shouldn't charge you for anything if they're a good shop.

Good luck. I wish I could be more helpful, but I obviously couldn't resolve it myself either.
