Default Check engine code

Got this code today. I tightened up the battery cables Friday as a suggestion to a previous problem

The code is,

O 168 4

Anyone see this or know what it is?

Info is handy to answer any question, and that includes what you ride

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Was just riding down the road at 55-60. Check engine light just came on. Wasn't running it hard. Bike has about 5500 miles. Doesn't seem to be running any different.

at least some of the codes are in the service manual. i
assume the dealers have software to hook up to the
ecm. must be some info in owners manual too.

Found the positive cable was loose. Took it for a short ride and the light didn't come back on, but i'm thinking it may be overcharging. I was showing 15 volts on my antique meter.

Still taking it over tomorrow to make sure it didn't hurt anything.
