No clue what was there. Maybe speed indicator input for rolling radar or speed overlay for a camera.

If I have free time this evening, I'll try to pop that pin out and swap the OE pin/wire back in.

Ah, didn't think of those!

As a side comment, I think Kawasaki's wiring is very good and reliable.  It seems the only problems reported end up being when someone has tampered with it (to add sensors, or additional equipment, or moved the bundles and didn't tie it back the same, etc).

Unlocking the pin from the plug was easy as described. Got to ride the bike error free for the first time last night. Quickly decided I should not leave the dash on the mileage readout.

That's fantastic Jeremy... I'm proud of you, to stick with it, and follow up...

(Some times us Old Men do have a sense of what "could" be the root cause...)

Short of me having the bike in front of me, to go over just as you did, I was betting there was something that the Outfitter's "spliced in" for the "cop stuff", that was not rectified when all the equipment was removed.

Great job man, now go play and enjoy your bike without watching the silly dashboard flash at ya... cooolllll

Ride safe,
Oh, now that you have that all rectified, might be time to ride a couple days, then send off your ECU to my pal Steve, in Fla., for his Mountain Runner Premium flash... it is well worth it, and will make this bike feel like the monster that it truly is inside... Turn around time is less than a week, probably like 4 days for you in Va.
it impressed the hell out of me, and I don't impress easily...

Ride it for a while, until you are comfortable, in all styles (especially fast).  Then flash it and be amazed.

He is?  Yet another of us Virginians? I must have missed that (I went back and skimmed all posts- saw nothing still).  Where in VA?

We affectionately call that the "5 and Dime" ride, out 5, cross on the ferry at Jamestown, then along to the Surry Restaurant for brunching, then back to Petersburg into R'town via 10.  really nice morning ride. Ferry is free... and a pleasant cruise...

Ya made me look, because I hate it when places close up, and I say "stop here"... I don't see that the old Surry restaurant is shown any more.. but I would suggest a cool spot...

it's not to far after you leave the ferry, and make a right turn off 31... looks like good food.. I dunno, we always were riding thru before they opened...
let me know if it's good... it should be, right on the water like that...

Yep, out of the west end of Richmond. I don't do the 5 and dime. I feel it is a boring ride. I did it for a new years ride maybe 3-4 years ago with a random group from Richmond. Broke from the group after a dude went down on the approach to the ferry and broke his arm. Sitting there just over the crest of a hill blind to traffic coming from behind me, and a drink guy walks out of his house and starts lecturing me about people riding too fast.

I don't ride with random large groups anymore. Usually I ride west to 56 and 39.

I have done that many times, but my main path is 64 to 5, then the reverse... at least for Mom visits. Otherwise it would tack on another hour.  Tunnel is usually a nightmare, and 64 is boring as hell, or congested as hell, and sometimes slow as hell.  But, overall, it is a LOT faster than going around the Earth to get to 5.  460 is super BORING and just a series of never-ending speed traps in every small town.

You think 5 is boring??  To me, it is only boring if there are too many slow people in front of me...

I never have.  Now THAT would be boring :)  And/or dangerous, too (there are a lot of strange people out there, most of whom seem far less "safe" than I, and far more interested in "impressing" others).  I prefer alone or with 1 other (who I know/trust, AND with whom I have in-helmet communication).

Oh, I had an "FI" error on the way home... first I have had in years.

Side note (may be interesting or not) but our CHP bikes ALL had speed limiters.  I suspect all or most prior police bikes will too.  The reason was because with the added weight of all the police equipment, the bike became a bit unstable at (now I don’t remember the exact speed) around 145ish.  At those speeds, the bike could and would start a weaving scenario that could be a bit unsettling.  When our instructors were testing the prototype ‘08s, they took it on the interstate and kicked it up.  It started a nasty weave and scared the sh*t outta the rider.  When they brought it back and told the Kaw/Dealer reps, they said something like “Oh yeah, we forgot to mention that... The finished bikes will have a speed limiter.” 

This should be a warning to people who put a top case on the rack and stuff the cases with a lot of weight.  Adding a passenger could make things worse.  Just something to be aware of.  I had a lot of weight in my top case and side cases and never experienced anything like this.  (I never hit 140+ though). Of course, who would go 140+ loaded with gear and a passenger on the back?  I hope nobody...

Note:  At the time, I don’t believe the bike was actually ever sanctioned for police work by Kawasaki, as a private dealer had bid the bike against BMW and HD, but that’s another story...
