Try a 15 min reset from cold.

Same issues;

Slowly dying rectifier killed 4 batteries. I specifically asked the mechanic to check the rectifier and he said it was fine (checked with voltmeter etc) but he was wrong. It turns out the rectifier tended to only go wonky when the bike/rectifier was heated up, after a certain amount of driving.

New rectifier and battery, runs perfectly now.

Yep, reg/rec can crack and problem evident only when hot.

May be not related to battery and reg/rec issue then - based on threads here, ECU problems are rare.

Try reloading map with another 15 min reset.

I'll try that, thanks. I haven't actually taken a download yet, I'm assuming the previous owner remapped it when the Mivv pipes were fitted. I'll get hold of a laptop and have a look. I wonder if it has been remapped and the ecu has reset itself back to default, that's maybe why it isn't running properly. I'll try and find a map for Mivv pipes and DNA stage 3 filter.

Had same problem.

I thought of the battery, so I ordered a new one, but when I plugged the old one, my optimate showed a green light... I already seen threads about a dead battery showed in green by the optimate, but anyway.
I also tryed to check ALL my connectors (the ones next to the battery, behind the headlight, etc), and I found this :
- I had oil inside the reg/rectifier connector next to the battery (my mistake, from the last time I had my oil changed), so I cleaned it as good as I could
- I also had oil on a connector (don't think it went inside of it) which is on the injector (the black connector), and this was due to my recent problem of water pump :evil: , you should see the mayonnaise I had in the MH airbox... :oops:
Cleaned all and put the new battery (Yuasa). Then I connected the bike to TuneECU, and I saw this error message :

P0560 - control unit voltage supply - malfunction

Oh sh**, it seems to be related to the reg/rectifier. Could it be possible that the oil inside the connector did all this ?

I made a (really) short ride after the battery change and the cleaning, and no problem, except my speedometer telling me I was riding at 453 km/h, during a really short time. Appeard only once, no other sign of malfunction...

Have always changed battery and reg/rec at same time, just in case.

Hi all,
Apologies for jumping on to this thread; I had a 'Soft 32 Dat 101' fail over the weekend - turned out the battery was cold and not producing enough current (it's 10 years old..) despite being on a trickle charger in the garage. After bringing the battery in to the house and charging it over night it started the bike fine - but I've ordered a new one all the same (65 quid from Padgetts).
One thing though: while checking all the connections behind the headlight I found 4 loose spade connectors which, I think, are indicated in the wiring diagram as: "Additional current connection ACC1, ACC2" with connectors marked -X21, 22, 23 and 24.
Are these spares for anything in particular? Heated grips? Additional running lights? Or are they supposed to be connected to something important already...?

Steve, they're for connecting accessories - as you suggest - heated grips, sat nav etc. I think one is permanently live and the other is switched with the ignition.
I would have thought its more than likely your battery - especially at that age!
I'm having similar problems, have ordered a new battery from Padgetts too - still waiting for it to arrive...

..the ACC bit standing for 'accessory' I assume? It all seems a bit obvious now you point it out, lol. 10 years for a battery not bad though? I can hardly believe it's that long since I bought my SD! New from KTM Hemel Hempstead (for a little over £8k) it's for another thread I guess but, despite having tried all the latest bikes out there, I'm still not tempted to part with it.
Even after it refuses to start. : /
