I have a 2014 M109R BOSS. It came with the Freedom Combat 2 into 1 exhaust, ebay spike air intakes and a Cobra fuel management device. Some weeks ago I pulled off the front seat and noticed that the blue light on the Cobra is not lit. I also saw that the thin black cable was not connected so I connected it to the negative terminal on the battery. It is a very flimsy cable onlyy about a millimetre thick (thin). Still no light.
I had seen the blue light on once in the past when I was with the original owner.
My question is how to identify whether the Cobra is working or not. Secondly, if it is not working, is the bike being damaged by running lean? I ride to work every day. I have noticed some backfires, which mostly happen when I go off and then on with the throttle, or when I shift up and then go off the throttle. But it doesn't happen every time.
When I have the money I may consider an ECU flash, but have to ride it as is currently.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
