I would point out you've had 2 bikes with this system and there's no way you want another. There have been folks on here that have had every electric compontent changed on their bike and it still dosn't work as it should. If you are using your bike to comute every day, you need reliability, which the Vulcan/Crossfire cannot provide. As SW said, not fit for purpose.
ok even if its almost out warranty you think they may have give me another bike?

im a little scared though they already gave me one new bike
They didn't GIVE you anything, it was a replacement. I'm sure they will prefer to replace your bike before they refund you your money, so use that to your advantage. Just insist it's not a Vulcan/Crossfire.

Though it sounds like the error codes are the least of your troubles...
I had an E21 code a couple of weeks ago. I took it into my local Halfords (who I've always found good) and they cleaned the sensor and the problem appears to be solved (for now). No cost.
This is the first time this has happened to me in 3 years. I do use the bike less when the weather is poor.

I have wiped the sensor and the disc the torque sensor im guessing im sure used to turn when I was peddling. It just seems all wrong plus when I turn the screen on the bike lurches forward when its going along its going faster than it used to before it cuts out

The sensors get dirty and need cleaning from time to time if you use them in dirty or wet conditions. They're easy to take apart. You have to clean out the little slots that yu can see when you get it apart. Did you clean your on the outside or inside? The other frequent problem is that the wire gets damaged when the chain comes off. That can be fixed if the wire is cut but if the wires get pulled out, you'll need a new one from Halfords.
