    2020 engine code 62.

    This might be just another "engine code" thread.
    Yesterday during a short and cold ride the power and ktrc started flashing.
    Today I managed to get the code 62 showing "sub throttle actuator..."

    Since its Sarurday and everyone is closed I was gonna start with disconnecting the battery & grounding.
    If that does not fix it I'll do a few "heat cycles" to see if the flashing goes away.
    From my understanding is the sensor to this is located under the airbox. I did plug my AIS two weekends ago and I've done 100km on it since and it 4uns beautifully only that it has the usual higher rom idle when it's cold. If I did something wonky I feel it show up instantly on the first ride/startup.

    Other mod that I've done is handlebar change that could have something to do with the "throttle body"?
    The bike is still in its warranty period but since I've flashed ecu and put on full system it's not under warranty.

    It's happened to me twice when I've started the bike and put it in gear before it had fully woken up and gone through it's little ignition on ritual, 3 rides sorted it out both times. I'm more patient now when I turn on the ignition.

     It isn't heat cycles you need to do, it's 3 rides.

    Start the bike, let it idle for a minimum of 30 seconds, then go for a 10 minute ride, 5 of which need to be at a constant speed of more than 40 kph (25mph), then stop and switch off.

     You do not need to let the bike cool down, repeat this another 2 times and you're done.

     ( if you drop below 40 kph at any time within the 5 minutes you need to do another 5 so choose the road wisely, highways are perfect.

    Each ride must total 10 minutes minimum, (minimum 30 second idle + minimum 5 minutes constant >40 kph, + X minutes other riding = 10 minutes total ride, (it doesn't matter where the 5 minute part is within the 10 minute total, beginning/middle/end, it's all good)

    Enjoy.

    My Z 900 m.y. 2020 had the same problem 3 times: KTRC / Ecu light flashing when starting the engine. The bike has 3000 km and the problem appeared every 1000 km. The dealer has detected the error but has not found any real problem, he told me that the cause may be that at the moment of starting you must not touch the accelerator because the ride by wire is very sensitive and the procedure triggers the error. I don't seem to have started the engine by touching the throttle but I will be careful in the future. Has anyone been given the same explanation? Or how did they motivate the mistake?

     My 2017 doesn't have the the electro bullsh*t of the 2020+ models so I'm less likely to need this procedure.
     However this the best explanation of the Kawasaki dance I have read.
    Good work.  :028:
    Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

    When I purchased the 2017 model one of the attractions was itís relative lack of electronics and rider aids compared to other bikes. ďLess things to go wrong.Ē At the time I thought rider modes were unnecessary because it was so smooth and linear in its power delivery, but that maybe the only thing I thought I might miss was traction control. Except as it turns out I havenít even missed that in over 4 1/2 years of riding.

    Reading this thread has confirmed that a basic bike can be a good thing.

    And Iím thankful. because I was never good at dancing.

    Code 62 comes up when you turn the key and/or start the bike wuthout the throttle fully closed according to my dealer.
    No slack in the throttle cable causes it as well.

    2017 bikes also suffer from it

    Ok. Cheers. Good to know.
    Just as well my bad habits from carby bikes havenít triggered this issue yet.

    Props to Fogg72 for this accurate take on how to perform the Kawasaki Dance.   :082:

    @Moderator, I think this should be pinned.

    Enjoy.

    Reviving this old thread. I recently fitted a mid pipe, link pipe and new slip on to find that upon starting the bike, this KTRC and Engine light was on.

    I will try this procedure and hope it cures it.

    Will report back
