Product Details

Servo Buddy Honda CBR1000RR / VFR1200

The Servo Buddy is THE solution to the common problem of what to do about the factory exhaust valve and servo motor system. Completely eliminating the motor, valve, cables, etc and it not only drops weight and frees up valuable space, but utilizing the Servo Buddy improves reliability by eliminating the common issue of the factory servo motor gears stripping out, FI light coming on or the motor burning up. The Servo Buddy is a must-have when switching to an aftermarket exhaust, and even works great with the factory system.

Servo Buddy Installed
Super easy to install and allowed me to remove my exhaust servo motor without getting a engine light. It has been installed 2 weeks of regular riding and is working well. I saw others have had issues with longevity, will find out, but enjoying it now.

super quick install !
2012/CBR 1000- plug & play makes this quick & easy threw a check engine light on the first ride I'm assuming was part of the ECU adjusting to the combination of the servo eliminator & O2 readings. Once started a 2nd time......the check engine light DID NOT come back on yet & I've been riding it for about 2 weeks. So...I'd say its pretty legit !!!!!

Servo Buddy
I have been using the Servo Buddy for a few months now. I did have my engine light come on a few times about a week after install. I contacted Skutrnet and told them I was having an issue. They were very happy to send me a new one free of charge. The new one has been working great for a few months now. 5 stars for a good product with great customer service.

About to buy another
This product is great quality and works like it should. Allows you to remove the exhaust servo motor without throwing an engine error code. I had this on my VFR1200 and since I sold it I will be buying another for my CBR1000rr.

Only worked for 3 days
Simple product designed to avoid check engine lights and error codes when you've removed your exhaust servo. Mine worked great for 3 days and then died. I took it back out and cleaned the contacts to assure there weren't any issues there and plugged it back in and it still doesn't work. Unfortunately it's not heavy enough to be a door stop nor a paperweight so I'm essentially left with just a $60 hole in my pocket.

Failed after a week.
installing the servo buddy only took minuets to install because i already had an aftermarket exhaust. A week later the check engine light came on. Checked for codes and it came up with the servo code. Rechecked the servo buddy to see if any wires got pinched in installation and looked at connector to see if it was secured correctly. Rode the bike to for a 30 min and stopped at a gas station. Started my 2014 cbr1000rr again and the check engine light came back on and put my motorcycle in limp mode which sucks 30 min from home. Checked codes again and it was again the servo code.

I chose this item to avoid having to deal with FI codes after I change oem exhaust.
P F on May 13, 2016
this part keeps the Fi light from coming on, and error codes
Douglas M on Mar 28, 2016
I wanted to keep the stock pipe, and I found that my bike responded better at lower rpm and engine-braked a little less with the cable removed from the servo motor and the exhaust valve stuck open. I figured that I might as well get rid of the servo motor and cables since they don't do anything anymore. So... servo buddy!
