    Fault in the engine control

    So today I decided to adjust my handlebars as the indicators switch seemed a bit too low. All very easy to do until I turned the bike on and big yellow warning sign came on saying fault in the engine control. I was a bit miffed as such a simple job and was adamant it was nothing to do with me. After a bit of searching on the web I came accross something on another bmw bike forum. Basically it mentioned he had just fitted bar risers on his bike then the same error as mine come on the TFT screen. Anyway he checked what he had done and realized the throttle position switch connector under the throttle was loose. He clicked back in and hey presto rally fixed. I went to my bike checked for the same thing and my connector too was loose. Clicked it all the way home and hey presto all fixed with no more warning signs. On other forums there was mentions of fuel pump failure, software updates and other things. Iím gunna have to stop messing with this beautiful machineÖ..

    This is easy to do on all fly by wire throttled bikes, not just BMWs but any manufacturers.

    I had the same issue with my gen2 when a pigeon hit the handlebars and dislodged the connector, the EML came on and the bike wouldnt take any throttle inputs..

    When leaving work tonight I stopped at barriers till sensor opened them and the bike stalled. When restarted the Fault in the engine control warning came up.
    Haven't done anything to bike that would make me think I've done something. ????

    So the warning still there and eml warning still on. Went into my vehicle settings and top left corner saying 1 new message which I can't access.
    BMW diagnostic tech on holiday for 2 weeks so goosed there.
    So started bike up and after a few seconds the eml went off and no warning came up.
    Went into settings again and top left corner says check okay with temp gauge lit up. ???
