Question for the GS911 geeks

GS911 with the latest software I'm getting error code 10446, Camshaft sensor error. Present when the engine is running, not when the engine is off. Bike seems to run fine other than what seems to be poor gas mileage (30mpg).
Bike is an 09 GSA with 6k on a new factory engine.

Does the bike stall easily or the engine die when coming to a stop. The 30mpg figure is a good sign something is wrong. I would start looking for connector issues first.

Yes, when it's cold. Not after it warms up

I've attributed the poor mileage to a new engine breaking in and my right hand. I've gotten in the mid to upper 30's if I keep it under 70. Might have to rethink that.

Any idea where the connector for the cam sensor might be? I didn't do the instal of the new engine.

Andy, the engine is new. You have warranty. Have the shop fix the problem.

Hi Mark. If it's anything more than a loose connection I'll take it in. Kind of a pain in the ass as it's my daily driver. I found the sensor from the blown engine in my box of parts so I can try swapping them to see if it makes a difference.

Took the bike to the shop yesterday for the cam sensor error and another fault and they found a chaffed wire shorting to ground and a loose connection. No charge to me to fix. Seat of my pants says the bike is running better and I'll check the gas mileage over the next couple tanks of gas. Unexpected wheelie today was a nice bonus..

Warranty repair... I wouldn't even invest in a GS911 until after warranty and you're a good wrench.

I bought the 911 after the original warranty ran out. The engine (only) is now under warranty because it was replaced.
And I am a good wrench.

I ordered my GS911 a month after I bought my new GS and wouldn`t be without it. I do all my wrenching and resets at home without having to deal with the stealership. PLUS one can Bluetooth link the GS911 to ones smartphone and do troubleshooting and resets on the side of the road. Very valuable tool if ones pig is not a garage queen.

GS911 is worth the price

Makes thing soooo much easier, and it can tell you what is wrong, which is completely worth the price of admission. Have you checked the foums on the GS911 site? Lots of great info there, too.

Hmm, something is up. I don't care how hard you ride, the only way I could imagine getting 30 mpg is if I was going 110 on the interstate for hours on end. Even if I'm flogging twisty back roads I rarely if ever drop below 40mpg.

Hey Andy, when you figure it out, let us know :)
I'm in the low 30's myself!

I was in the low 30s

Dumb question..but trying to get my 911 on line...

I'm all MAC here..so need to pick something up to run this on..

In looking at there site..Do I need something running XP or Vista?? Or does it run on 7..8?

I was kinda thinking of picking up a Surface..having a lightweight 'pooter to take with..etc..

Then too..is a surface a pile? ?? Should I just grab a refurb Acer with XP on it....??

Thanks in advance...
