I am having an issue with my asphalt sled. It is an 08 800r. It has been running fine all year, but decided to die on me at the end of the track. I was able to run it on choke for a few seconds to get it off the track.
The sled will run for a few seconds, and then die as if you hit the kill switch. At first I thought it was the fuel pump, so I changed it with no luck.
I was getting a weak/ intermittent spark. I measured my stator for continuity, as well as A/C output, did the same with the pickups. They were both within spec.
I checked the kill switch, tried a different DESS post, checked for chaffing at the Voltage Regulator, tried a different coil.
I haven't had much luck...The sled will run some of the time, but I get a "SHUTDOWN" error on the cluster and the sled dies shortly after.
I spoke with the dealer, and he mentioned he has only seen the SHUTDOWN message on an ETEC during startup!
I am trying to sort this out ASAP, as I have a race this weekend!
