Code 56? I think

Took off carbs and cleaned put everything on, engine light blinks 5 long 6 fast I think that means code 56 which is valve #2 fuel soleniod is bad. Probably cause it wont turn with the bolt so it cracks the wires. So, was wondering if I could just leave it, or fix it myself if I have to. I dont wanna pay 150 just for one plug. Any ideas?

I would just delete the solenoid. Here's a few links.

I just learned this week that indian bikes kill the rear cylinder when at idle to keep it from heating up your legs when at stop lights, maybe fuel savings also.

Sorry guys code was 58 not 56 but still value #2 fuel soleniod disconnected or short circuit. Is it safe to delete them??? I thought they kept the CConveter from getting filled with fuel? But if it is safe, can I? Or should I just get aftermarket pipes and delete the CC. Thanks for the help tips!

Also this is probably stupid to ask... butttttt when it says valve #2 solenoid... is that the left side carb or the right side card. I know its dumb to ask but I just wanna be sure lol.

Good question. On 1100 the front cylinder is #2.

You can try to solder, normally the heat will compromise the sensor. This sensor cuts fuel off in case of tip over. It's a reduntent system. If you cut you petcock to the off position no fuel is going to carbs. I guess for safety reasons they put a secondary system. If it was me I would just put the sensor back in to plug the hole and ride. Just turn petcock to off position when you park the bike, it's a good habit to get into anyway. Keep us posted on your progress.
