I have an 06 wide glide with about 1500 miles. Usually when climbing a long incline or when on the freeway (70 mph in 6th gear) the check engine light comes on. The bike seems to be running fine though, and I'm not lugging it (don't think so anyway). I assume this comes from the fuel injection computer. Does anyone know what triggers this light(too lean, too rich)?

[I know I can take it back to the dealer and it's under warranty etc etc.]

Thanks
Malcolm

Engine Light

By all means take it to a dealer ASAP. I've been hearing of problems with all FI models developing holes in the fuel line between the pump and the tank outlet. Imagine losing power while passing a semi on a two lane road....

not sure if this is related to your problem, but when starting an efi bike there is a process of waiting for the the engine light to go out before pressing the start button. you'll hear the fuel pump after you turn the ignition on before pressing start button. I remember reading someone didn't follow this procedure and it caused a problem, i can't remember what it was or if this is a possible cause of your problem.

good luck and ride safe.

There are probably fifty or more trouble codes represented by this light. What it means? Get it to the dealer and they scan it and you know.

My light just started to come on for like 15 seconds after starting the bike. Seems to run fine. I will have them look at it when I take it in for the recall.

there is a post here or another popular hd-forum that tells you how to use your keyswith and odometer reste to retrieve the codes and explains what they mean.
