2002 GSXR 1000, Exhaust Control Valve Actuator, Code C46??

I have a near stock(TRE, Dealer Mode Switch and PAIR Mod) 2002 GSXR 1000. I bought the bike new, and it has about 3500 miles on it. It has a stock exhaust. I do not want to put an aftermarket exhaust on it and I do not want to disable the valve.

I have been getting a C46 code. It does not always set the code, but it usually does. It does not seem to be affecting the way the bike runs, but I am tired of seeing the light/code.

I lifted the tank and run the bike, blipping the throttle. I can see the cables to/from the servo move and it seems like it is working normally, but I am not really sure what normal is.

I have searched and found lots of post regarding a C46 code with an aftermarket exhaust, but none about a stock exhaust.

How do I "test" the ECVA system? How do I "fix it"? Is there some "maintanance" I should do to it?
