Re: Possible electrical issues

Ian, you were spot on! it was the starter switch sticking, it didnt pop all the way back out. still need to figure out why my turn signals are acting up.

As for the signals, could be the same over there as well; a bad contact.
Ian,

That sounds about right. lights shut off bike starts. i will see if i can clean it out as well this weekend!!! Bill, I do not have any resistors in the turn signals, I upgraded my headlamps to LED ones.

Re: Possible electrical issues

Hi Jamie, have you got any resistors in the lighting or are you stock ,poor wiring is another , could be the initial problem of the overload weakened the wires , but take a look at any resistors first
Edit; just another thought Jamie, what power does the battery kick out when the lights fail?

Re: Possible electrical issues

Hey Bill, Quick question. I have noticed in the last few days that my headlights come on when i turn the key and do not come on after the motor turns over. takes 2 minutes to kick back on at times, and today it took 20 minutes or so to kick back on. i don believe its a short, i feel its more of a left side controls issue. turn signals don't seem to come on when i try to use them, turn signal running lights shut off when i engage one side or the other. once the signal actually functions, i push in the switch to stop it and then go to the opposite signal and nothing happens, push the switch again to shut off the signals and the running signals turn off completely and take time to come back up and slowly. my thoughts are to replace the controls, clean them with electrical cleaner and see if that works. thinking of replacing both controls.

Any thoughts Bill?

Re: Possible electrical issues

Bill, I really liked the yellow and black, but i am ready for a change. I think i will have some vinyl graphics to cover teh yellow and have some new Honda winged stickers for the tank. or just put a tank grip so when my girlfriend is on the back i don't slide forward.

Hi Bill,

So i put the 929 back to stock in regards to the Air box and HTEV valve. it sounded like ****. couldn't take it, it sounds so much better with the servo motor back in it. I bought a new Body kit for it, going all black. im replacing the Speed sensor, which was giving me lots of FI red light errors. I will show you pictures after Christmas.
