Afternoon all and thanks for the add.
I'm in need of desperate advice in regards to my '07 xb12x Ulysses. Although it's one of the most fun bikes I've ever ridden, it's driving me insane. I have 2 problems.
The first is causing the headaches - Once the bike is fully warm it suddenly dies. It may just be coincidence but both times have been whilst coming to a stop and going into 1st after a mile or two. The revs instantly drop to zero and I get nothing from it. It then takes a good 5-10 minutes for it to start back up, making me think it's the timing sensor (this sensor didn't change and split to a cam angle and crank sensor til '08). The part is £200 so I don't want to buy this until I'm certain it's the cause. The bike does have a higher seat fitted and I've double checked the ecm and can't find any hairline cracks on it as some say. I've tried tapping the ecm with the butt of a rubber-handled ratchet whilst running to try rule that out as well. All grounds have been cleaned and I've relocated the ecm to make sure nothing is rubbing but to no avail.
My other issue is the bike won't connect to diagnostics software no matter what I try. I've been using Diag4bike and their website has been no help either. However the issue of not connecting to diagnostics is making me think a ecm issue is the cause?
Any help on either matter would be incredibly helpful! TIA
