leaky liner

well my new stratoliner developed a rear rocker box leak at the git go. not wanting the dealer to touch my bike, i did the fix myself. what a job. i had to take what seemed to be half the bike apart. it has a little over 1000 miles. the problem is, i have the engine light staying on and get a 14 diagnostic code, which is the #1 cyl. air pressure sensor hose. i did have to take the hose off to raise the air cleaner , but hooked it back up. now i have to erase the memory of the fault in the ecu. any one know how to do this? the service manual is very complicated on this subject.

nothing wrong with dealers, i'm just picky about my bikes. when i do the work myself i know it's done right. to many horror stories out there about dealer work on anything. there are very good mechanics and there are some that aren't so good. it's like that in any field. i believe they call it being human.

If you put the hose and sensor back correctly then the error code will reset by starting the bike and let in run at idle for a bit. In other words, it sounds like you didn't do it right.

This whole thread has to be some kind of elaborate hoax, right?

I mean...a bike with 1000 miles develops a warranty issue that could be rectified at no cost to the owner by the dealer? But even though the dealer hasn't yet done anything wrong, the owner doesn't trust his bike to a designated warranty repair facility because he's sure he will do a better job repairing it than the service personnel? So now the bike is malfunctioning and the OP still says he does his own work because he knows it will be done right?

C'mon, admit it: you're having us on aren't you? This is actually a rejected script from TV's "Tool Time" isn't it?

before this thread turns "stupid", were you able to reset the error code or what?

If starting and running the bike didn't do it, he should try disconnecting the battery for a minute or so, reconnect and see if it's gone away. If not, then something is still fubar.

The method I wrote came right out of the service manual which is pretty simple to follow. If it don't reset after 5 tries you need to contact your administrator.....oh no, sorry, that's my iPhone password message. If it doesn't reset, you did something stupid and you need to recheck your connections. If all connections are good, then you probably broke the sensor or the electrical connector to the sensor.
