I've been having an issue with my CEL calling up the EXVL. I've gone in and lubed the cables, checked the harness, made sure the servo motor actually works. Every time, the CEL comes on (sometimes) after I've been riding for a while. It's fine at start up. I get the impression that it's a sensitive system. I'm guessing that I just need to make sure the cable is at the right tension? Just for the sake of problem-solving, anybody have any tips or links to sources regarding how to properly adjust and align the servo motor and cable?

|1UglyBastard||i recently swapped my exhaust for boomtubes and disconnected the cable but left the servo motor plugged into the harness. i've ridden my bike several times with no issues nor the check engine light.|

I don't know if anyone still looks at this (lol) but for me it worked
On the Ducati dealer they charged 40€ and the problem persisted (go figure )

First commute to work and... only the yellow light from the gas tank appeared
The bike is much smoother now on lower gears and rpm's. Great for town use.
Engine breaking is less than it used to be, but for me it's ok - not an issue here.
I'll keep the monitoring going

|marlene996||I am so glad I didn't spend $90 to have that kinked cable replaced. Mine is coming off too!|

I'm also having this issue for some weeks now (Monster 796 '11).
How do you disconnect that cable? Does it need a special tool?
Do you have the final setup with the cable disconnected? Should it be left there hanging disconnected?

It worked! Man! save even the cost of the Duc EE, simply disconnecting that cable made great improvements. Ok, so they may be minor, but they're huge to me bc I've only had it a week. And no Check Engine Light
Before: Throttle response was very twitchy. On my half hour ride to work, I felt like I had to get to the sweet spot in 3rd which was 4k rpm and around 45mph. First and second were gears to get through, not gears to ride in. Very twitchy up to the 4k mark.
After: First, I couldn't hear my music as well, so it must be louder :-) Secondly, 1st was easier to more smoothly (still not perfect, but improved) roll off of at a stop and get to second gear. Second gear is smoothed out fairly tremendously really. I was able to cruise and roll on throttle fairly smoothly from about 2500 rpm through 4k. I specifically noted that this made 2nd gear usable in the 25 and 35 zones.
Great mod and didn't even require buying the Duc EE. Thanks guys!!

|ghettogarage||Hope it works for you, I have been un-hooked for a few years now.|

|B427||Thanks for the pic! I'll be doing this today. It's new to me (1 week) and it's very twitchy from 2-4k. Hoping this will help.|
