2004 WING WITH CSC CONVERSION STARTER PROBLEMS

Post by JimGarrett » Fri Oct 27, 2017 11:42 pm



First let me say hello. Although I visit frequently for information I just took the plunge and signed up. Hopefully someone can help me with a problem. I have a problem with a machine that just doesn't want to stop. If it were a college football team we'd win the NC every year (sorry Bama). The only way to shut it down is to get the side cover off and disconnect the ground. By this time I need new starter relays and every other time a new starter. I wrote the NSTA to complain about the safety issue but I still need a fix. What I'm wondering is if the originally relays are now too small given the weight difference and frequency of reverse use. I'm wondering if installing larger relays say in the 100 amp range would help? In addition I plan on using a large solenoid to disconnect the ground from the battery in an emergency. It could be easily controlled by a small switch in the glove compartment and allow a shut down without getting off the bike, taking covers off and disconnecting the ground wire. None of this is so bad but I'm getting older and running along side the bike while doing this is a real strain on the ole body. Any advice would be appreciated.
