2008 M8 ECU 16 problems

I guys I ride a 2008 M8, went out riding on the Saturday seld run fine. Went out on Sunday pulled the seld out of the shed was taking it to fuel up when i looked down and on the gauge it was Flashing ECU 16, I know what the code stands for (ECU 16* Incorrect adjustment/failure in APV cable).

Why would I get this code all of sudden i have not touched the APV at all? What or were to start to fix this problems?

hey, i just had same code come up on my sled (08M8). It turned out one of power valve cables was starting to fray inside the jacket and was causing some resistance, causing the ecu to throw code 16. I had checked the cable specs prior (35mm i believe), and cables seemed to operate smoothly. But not smoothly enough i guess.

If the inner liner on the cable housing is wearing, you wouldn't notice it usually by hand, but the servo motor might feel a touch more resistance that it is programmed to accept. I would try just replacing both cables as a first step. looks to be around $50 each, so its not a huge investment. I have already replaced mine on my M7 as well as the throttle cable, not because of a code or error, but for peace of mind on a 7 year old sled. although your m8 is only 4 years old. What kind of hours/miles on your machine?
