Several years ago, I brought home a partially disassembled V11 EV, 1998. The main wiring harness was burned up, was reason #1 it had not been run. It still wears a 2001 tag. I bought a harness from Pinwall Cycle a few years ago. So, it went from sitting in a garage collecting dust, to sitting in another garage collecting dust. I have been picking away at it lately.
Yesterday, I put it all together, put gas in it and a battery from another motorcycle. When I turn the key one click to the right, I get tail lights, instrument lights, turn signal & horn function. The neutral light comes on with the battery and fuel lights. No fuel pump, and no click when I hit the start button.
I have two wires near the battery that I can not find where they go. They have flag terminals on them. One of them is blue with a black stripe and the other is blue with a red stripe. When I stand on the right side of the bike looking at the fuses, the leftmost one has no power to it with a test light.
I have mechanical aptitude, but no experience with these machines and I never saw it with everything where it belonged. So, yes, I could have erred in hooking stuff up. I also have two 10 inch long pigtails (ground straps) I'm pretty sure are in the wrong place. Should they go to the coils?
Someone treated me to a ride on one of these a few weeks ago and that lit a fire under me. I like it! I want to ride the snot out of this thing!
