Re: '00 929RR - overheating and not charging
Don't know why I never did this before, but I hooked up a multimeter in series with the battery to check the load with the bike off. 2.54A (!). Went down to 1.4 once I disconnected the "clock" fuse, which I suspect is the ECU. Something's not right there since that accounts for 1.14A alone. But I kept going and disconnecting other things - the rest of the fuses, relays under the tank, the stator (whose plug I found was melted), reg/rect, safety switches (kickstand/killswitch/clutch), headlights, horn, etc. I don't think there's many electronics left to disconnect, but I had to stop for now. The only other one that made any difference was the ignition switch, but I think that makes sense since the ignition switch bridges the battery to everything else, doesn't it? Once I pulled that it went down to 0. This is an aftermarket switch and I had to wire in the diode to bring pink down to 9.xV, so maybe that has something to do with it.
