The Lenny? I'm guessing by the bikes that it's the Lenny that helps so many others in Baja with spares, etc. Jay here in PDX (of Jay and Scott at Mike's Sky Ranch) and here is what I found:

I saw elsewhere on the site that it looks like code 45 which is the rear lambda sensor, or a short to it. Check where it runs down the frame (left side?) as sometimes the crash bars where they meet the frame can pinch the wire.

Hopefully the experts can help further. I'll keep an eye on the thread (and email) - if there is anything I can do from here I'm happy to help.

Battery cables tight, petcocks fully open, charcoal canister empty; tanks properly vented; ignition switch wiring connections tight? what else? Maybe check relays under the seat- switch them around and see if it changes.

I throwing out there what I can think of to check. Don't feel compelled to respond!

How's the fuel filter? How many miles you at? Check the power connection to the fuel pump- that had me stuck outside that Mission in Calamajue.

I might be able to post a wiring schematic, if it'd help. Tell us what you might need.

Hey Lenny - at least there's good fishing there.

The rear mounting point where the crash bar meets the frame should look like a "C" shaped clamp that wraps part way around the frame. There is supposed to be a wire running from the rear lambda along that part of the frame. Check the wire there and see if it has been damaged (or maybe pulled on by the crash bar?). It is visible without taking the bike apart.

The end of the crash bar can be unbolted there without too much of a pain in reinstalling, but be careful before taking the whole thing off as it's a hassle to re-mount where you're at.

I'll keep digging for more insight. To clarify, the code was being displayed before the tip over on the way to San Felipe?

Very easy to catch the wire for the O2 sensor with the crash bar mount.

Can someone post up a photo of this vulnerable wire location. I think it might be one of the first free mods I do when I get my new bike -- relocate or move that wire...

Great news Lenny! I feel like The Weatherman.

Glad you are up and running. San Felipe seems to attract limping bikes with fuel issues. Give me a ring when you're back state side to catch up. Cell and email are in your PM's.

Jay

Thoughts of your Baja in Baja

Hey Lenny,

Glad you got good help from these awesome OC cats! Did you ride Diablo wash side trails into Felipe? Thoughts on your bike in Baja? Are you having fun on it down there?

Lennys,
Glad you made it home! Hair raising for sure.

My guess would have been the sidestand switch. But glad you found it.
