Default Street triple fault light on when taking a passenger.

Hi

I am hoping someone could give me few suggestions here. My bike It seems does not like female passengers any more

I am having a 2010 street triple for two years, all been fine. However, recently my friend ride it and carried his girl, the fault line turned on while they were riding and the engine switched off itself.

We got the bike back home and parked for a night, the bike seemed OK on the next day and we had few rides (solo) after that. However, the fault code turned on soon enough when I took my lady on the back. Then, I put the bike to the shop to had a check about wiring relates to engine switch. All seems ok.

We then had few rides again (friends had rides as well). All good. Finally, the light turned on again this morning as soon as I took my lady on the back. Very strange

Ermm... how do I put this politely, Would she be considered a woman of generous proportions?

Does it do it if you double a male passenger?

Have you put aftermarket indicators or a tail light on the bike, only serious suggestion is that there is some dodgy wiring round the tail section and the added weight is shorting something out.

Did the shop read the fault code? The only thing in the tail section that could cause a fault is the barometric pressure sensor which is just in front of the tail light.

Thanks for reply. I did put a pair after market indicator in the front but keep the back as factory. However that was year ago.
