Post by Agila » Tue Mar 06, 2018 10:17 pm



Hello Winger family, hope I could express myself better this time. Second posting be patient with me. The wing would automatically reset the clock and trip meter once you start it. As what was stated by Techdude the battery was check all connection was secured and tight . Battery fully charged. Need more help Thank you Iirs a 2005 with 40.000miles

Have you put a voltmeter on the battery and watched the voltage while you are starting it? If you do, I think you will find it’s dropping really low and causing the memory circuits to loose their data. Your symptom is almost always a bad connection on the battery or a weak battery.

Have you checked the battery fuse, not sure which one it is on an 05.

It’s the one labeled “battery”. I don’t think it will be blown due to him not mentioning his radio presets loosing their settings.

Thank you for the information Tech dude. I will try checking the battery. BTW there are about 4 wires connected to the positive terminal and the negative to get power .Do you think this could be the cause of the automatic reset ? I' really appreciate your feedback. Thank you for the advice.

Don’t know if they are your issue, but I personally don’t like to have anything on the battery except the bike’s cables. Power blocks are cheap these days and are a better choice for branching these circuits.

Rob ... have you seen these. For the longest time, Eastern Beavers was the only practical one made for m/c's. And now they make a 18" harness kit that includes a relay. However, there wires to their fuse box still come in from the sides, and there ends at the crimp are somewhat exposed. Basically, they have wires coming in from at least 3 directions.

Now there are 3 newer ones available. A couple of them have built-in relays. However, I like the last one best. The wire ends are protected and it looks like it has a common relay.

However, there wires to their fuse box still come in from the sides, and their ends at the crimp are somewhat exposed. Basically, they have wires coming in from at least 3 directions.

However, 3 new ones are now available. A couple of them have built-in relays into their printed circuit board. However, I like the last one best. The wire ends are protected, and it looks like it has a common relay easily attainable if it goes bad. The down side ... apparently the + cable is 3' long, and it would need cut for a better fit. Most DIY's won't have the crimping tool needed for a quality crimp. However, once installed, it looks like a clean, safe install.
