I recently put a full system DG exaust on my friends can am for him and a pro design airbox kit with a modified lid. All went well but when i started the bike after all was done it fired right up and idled a little high but not bad, when I went to rev it, it died and check engine light was blinking. I shut it off and turned back on started again no problem idle same went to rev died light blinking again ??????

Hey thanks guys tried pink wire was not problem but im sure it will help. Finally took the quad to a buddys shop and we put it on BUDS. Problem ended up being a losse wire at the coil so was not letting secondary plug fire. That is why would idle but not rev. I was also informed this is a manufactures recall they are calling all DS450's in so they can solder these connections instead of the chinsey connectors that are on them. Thanks Again

i have a question. Can i just cut the pink wire, without a pipe or anything else?? Just cant spend huge cash on pipe, and EFI controller right now..... i read in new dirt wheels yesterday, that cutting the pinl wire is all you need...is this true?? will it screw with my warranty?? please let me know!!

well youll want to open your box and take out the spark arrestor from your pipe...but yea those 3 "free" mods are pretty damn impressive...and no it wont void your warrenty...

I believe the pink wire just unlocks a race map and eliminates the limp mode

i run with my lid off and when i think its going to be a bit wet or boggy just put it back on it fit under your seat in the elastic band part so you can keep it with the quad at all times
