2002 xv1600as Midnight Star
I came to find an answer but after reading some threads, I see this is more than a problem fixing forum. It's cool. I like it. 👍
I have a 2002 midnight star - model xv1600as. I took it apart and painted it already being that I was painting in a body shop at the time of purchase. I feel like a dumbass saying this but I lost my only ignition key... I did go to get a spare made but they didn't have the correct blank to make it. I figured I'd get around to it... so after a locksmith came and made me another key (with spares) I have a blinking engine light. It blinks 6 times. I found something online that points to a solenoid but it starts right up, no problem. It does have an issue while riding though. Feels like a ln air to gas ratio problem maybe? It backfires from time to time but not consistently, it stalled at a light, and it just feels off. It has Vance & Hines pipes and kuryakn (however you spell that, I'm sure you know what I mean) air intake. I'll include some pics.
