Yet another issue with my RE classic 350 reborn.

The engine light comes on when the engine is very hot. I have an appt at the dealer but it’s a month away. The nine flashes of the light seem to suggest is a MAP system issue. I’m extrapolating as that’s what 9 short flashes mean on other RE bikes. I don’t know where the MAP sensor is or I’d check it to see if it’s loose.
i also have a very slight shudder at about 50MPH+. I don’t know if it’s the engine due to wrong fuel mix due to map sensor but it did it before the light came on. Tire pressure ok, suspension set at position 3. I weigh 200 pounds. Maybe it a spike pulling a wheel out? I can’t see anything obvious. At this point I’m looking for musings from folks. I’m missing my Honda these days.

I got my classic 350 this July and got the check engine light within 3 days and around 50 miles. Took it to the dealer and got it fixed. They said some plastic component on the right side fell off and they replaced and sealed so that it doesn’t come off. No issues after that until now at 400 miles.

The MAP sensor id part of the EMS ecu. The MAP error codes are :
P0107 Manifold Absolute Pressure (IBS) MAP Low
P0108 Manifold Absolute Pressure (IBS) MAP High

However, you may need an Enfield diagnostic tool to confirm anything. Probably not cheap :)

When I did my first 300 mile service a few days ago I poked around the rest of the bike checking bolts, connections, etc. I noticed the rubber boot to the starter motor was not covering the terminal exposing it to the elements so I readjusted it. Everything else looked great…so far. If you’re comfortable working on your bike poke around on it and see what’s what. Electrical connectors, hoses, and bolts can become dislodged with regular riding and it’s possible someone didn’t connect something somewhere along the assembly line, at least completely. Also I downloaded the Meteor 350 service manual using the link provided on this forum. Once the skins are off everything should be identical between Meteor/Classic; 1127 pages of detailed instructions. Hope this helps, good luck.

I live in a very wet part of the US so on every new bike I check and make sure there is electrical grease on all electrical connections and they are good to go.

I also have the Meteor manual download and use it for my Classic. They are pretty much the same except the Meteor has a gear position indicator and also a Secondary air solenoid which has a pipe connected to the cylinder head near to the exhaust port. The Classic just has a blanking plug and no solenoid.
