    The dealer's diagnosis was that the exhaust flap servomotor (positioner unit) required replacing. The flap itself was free to move through 90deg (full open to full closed & back) once the cables had been disconnected.

    Was quoted £234.74 parts & labour to replace the motor. The part with a 10% discount is £159.13, therefore, the labour is £75.60. This work would not be covered under the insured warranty.

    Decided to have another look myself. With the silencer removed, the flap could be seen to move from fully open to fully closed & back when the ignition was switched on. Perhaps exercising the flap/motor has done the trick. Applied some PlusGas to clean/lubricate the flap internal pivot points, plus a squirt of ACF-50 externally on the cables etc.

    When the bike is serviced, will get the fault code cleared & leave well alone.

      Why would you buy this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232525732652 for £160, when a new one can be obtained for the same price.
