Should servo look like this?

  1. I check thermostat works fine, flushed system and i'm putting new coolant in. I took out the servo because I ran the FI and got a code on the servo. It didn't move or anything, there appears to be sticky/grease stuff on it and also the end of the metal feelers are black. Do I need a new servo motor? I'm thinking this is why my bike was overheating and acting sluggish.

  2. The sticky grease is supposed to be there. The broken teeth that are laying in there should be attached to the plastic gear but are not. So if its not turning I'd say the busted teeth are why. Doubt you can get a new gear for it. Probably have to buy a whole new one.

    Since the teeth are stripped, make sure your flapper in the exhaust is moving freely. Those teeth stripped for a reason, don't want it to happen again.
     
  6. flapper? is that In the manual? I suck at mechanical stuff I'm just following the manual. I can't even seem to find a servo motor..
     
  7. Go to mechanic.
    You require assistance the internet can not provide.
    There is no shame in it.
    There is shame in fucking it up a lot worse because you didn't want to bring it to someone qualified.
