Blinkers and fire

Can anyone tell me if the 2003 CBR 954 has to have the blinkers connected to fire?

Fuel, air, and spark, yes. Blinkers ... no.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Please explain for those of us who don't understand your jargon.

Re: Blinkers and fire

I know some bikes will not run with out the headlight or the meter. I lost fire after a rebuild and do not have my blinkers connected. Since the circuit is not closed, I thought it may be possible to lose fire this way. Highly improbable, but maybe.

Are the indicators on the same harness as the bank angle sensor?

Mine blink twice as fast with my LED tailiights, so I'm not getting MSD, Sky?

You're not getting Male Sexual Dysfunction? Good for you, but we don't really need to know that.

Re: Blinkers and fire

I'll run out sometime this evening for a ride anyway, so before I start her up I'll disconnect the front signals and see how it goes....

Re: Blinkers and fire

On my RC51, which has many commonalities in the wiring and accessories, if you pull the 20 amp fuse for the headlight, the bike wont start. Same if you pull the 10 amp turn signal fuse. I discovered that when I was prepping my bike for the track.

Do you mean the engine won't start or simply that the starter motor won't work?

The starter motor gets no power.
