Re: Can someone design a circuit for me

I just wanted my headlights to stay off when starting the bike and since I usually start it on the side stand, I just cut the ground wire for the low beam relay and tied the ground wire from the side stand when it’s in the up position to the relay. This keeps the lights off until I put up the side s...

AZgl1800. I won’t go back and check up on you.
I think you got your knock sensor and oxygen sensor codes crossed up. The knock sensor codes usually point to the ECM. The oxygen sensor codes are usually pointing to a bad sensor or bad gas. Glad he got her going again.

Re: LED Flasher Unit

If I have a LED flasher unit installed on my 2010 GW will the OEM incandescent signal lights still work? My bike is in the shop having a crankshaft position sensor replaced and while the deck will be all opened up for that I thought it would be smart to have the LED flasher installed. I won't be ab...

Re: Going to remove the engine. Looking for encourage/advise

No, all 13 are in place. Is that all that remains of the bearing cage in this part of the engine? If so, you have a lot that has made it to the sump area of the case, which means the rest of the cases need to be split to find it. There’s a large drain back hole at the bottom that it probably migrat...

Re: FI fault code 25

Sorry to say it, but nope, the rough running in conjunction with a knock sensor code points to a bad ECM(engine control module). A bad knock sensor won’t make the engine run badly at idle. This is a common failure for the 01-05 wings.

Re: Cruise Control light constantly on

Another point of why some of us leave it on all the time, is the cruise control system fuse powers the ignition line for the alternator. If for some reason the cruise fuse blows, the alternator will stop charging without any warning and you may be stuck on the side of the road with a dead battery. O...

Re: 2009 GL1800 wont start because the reverse light wont go out

Ok, so, there’s either an issue with the power for the neutral light and the reverse relay or there’s an issue with the gear position switch and the ground for it. If you were in KY, I would have you on the road by now. Just ship it over here and you can tour the curvy roads of KY after I fix it! :D

It doesn't make any noise because the reverse light is on and wont go off.
It will start if it feels like it, but then wont start again for a month or so.
Ok, do you know if the actuator is moving to the reverse position and locking up the rear wheels before the starter button is pushed?

Try some Triflow contact cleaner sprayed into its crack between the moving part and the stationary part of the switch, then work it up and down a bunch.

Re: Going to remove the engine. Looking for encourage/advise

So, did DB clamp their shaft in a vice and squish the splines or is it machined off center? That’s some messed up stuff right there!

The scissor gear is on the crankshaft and drives the ADG.

I think Greg is thinking it’s an 01-05, they have two washers on the ADG. The 06 doesn’t have them.
