That will teach me to spend money on my bikes
It was all going so well today riding down to Popham and meeting up with the stalwarts of the Hants group, then the Popham curse caught up with me on the way home.
Big thanks to Kevin Palmer for picking me up from H-Cafe and running me home so that I could pick up my van and go and collect my stricken Monster.
Almost dead electrics and showing code 0005 Sw.R
So just about to head over to bike night in the van and collect the bike, will have to sort it out at the end of the week, pretty certain I have what ever spare is required
When I got back to the cafe with the van, I tried the bike again and still a blank dash,quick check across the optimate connector with my meter and only getting 10 volts. so removed seat and tank panels, unbolted the tank and checked the connections, 30A fuse etc and all OK.
Swapped the Ignition relay for one of the spares I carry in the van and at least the dash came to life, still not starting so scrolled the dash to read battery volts, and got battery error, another scroll and got Start error. Used Jump leads to connect to the van, bike started and dash displayed 13.7 volts, disconnected jump lead and bike cut out.
So removed battery and fitted the YTX7 spare for the race bike and the bike started and ran OK with the dash displaying 13.6 volts. So loaded it into the back of the van. Bike is now back at home and i'm just about to try charging the original battery as i suspect the relay contacts worn
