Just bought 08, C41 Error Code

I changed out my ignition fuse and my fuel fuse after the bike quit on me right after buying. Now I have flashing F1 and dealer says C41. All was fine and now I feel like I blew my money

Blew your money on the bike or the fuses? Doesn't sound that expensive to fix, nothing really is on these bikes.

Take it to a good indy bike mechanic and get an estimate on the problem and repair.

Whenever you buy a used vehicle, having to fix something right after is kinda par for the course unfortunately.

I agree with par, just kills me that I was riding and getting comfortable and it quit. I found I frayed wire. Removed the frayed section and found 2 blown fuses. Walked it home and then that's when the F1 started flashing. Threads are how I learned to check dealer code and it came up C41. All was good, the guy even rode it to the house

It's priming with the kill switch but it just doesn't seem to be priming for very long, stops after 1 sec.

Re: Just bought 08

As SD said, it is common to have to adjust or fix things when buying a used bike. It is understandable to be disappointed but keep in mind you've made a good choice with the SV and it is not hard to fix C41 error code problem. Most likely the problem is the fuel pump, could also be the ECM.

Used bikes, bikes that have been sitting, often the problems are battery and fuel system.

Do you have a voltmeter? Is so, I or others here, can walk you though the electrical tests needed to fix your bike.

The one second sound you hear when cycling the Run/Stop switch is the throttle body startup. Proper fuel pump prime should last a full 3 seconds. If you only hear a one second "buzz" then the fuel pump is not priming.

I dont have a voltmeter. I was also curious if it would rest if I unhook the ECM and then plug it back in. Dumb I know but I was riding and the guy rode to my house 2 hrs later on the road it just quit

Sorry. Also there is a small black module or something next to my battery and assuming my starter solenoid. It has a rubber "cap" over it, the wires have been cut and spliced. Could that be causing my problem?

That could be your problem.

I hate to say this, but...

after chasing wiring problems for a long time on my SV1000 I eventually just replaced the whole harness. I think it took me about 4 hours to do. The harness cost me $40 shipped.

Of course, I'd do some troubleshooting before swapping the whole thing, but it sounds pretty hacked up.

Also, make sure that any replacement harness you buy is uncut, and for the right year/version (S vs N).

Yes, that is the fuel pump relay, good chance that is the problem.

What I meant to say:

Yes, good chance the cut and spliced wires are the problem.
The small black modeule with rubber cap is the fuel pump relay, not the starter solenoid.
