Kiwi Roy, I think you need to find a V711 wiring diagram.There will be a lot more spaghetti.It is a bit harsh to judge this as a V7 wiring problem.The owner has dabbled into it in a way that adds so many potential problems.In fact the V7s seem to have had very little trouble in this or any department.Someone has to stickup for these excellent bikes.Merry Xmas.
Instead of " here we go, the V7's are starting to fail " how about " modified V7 has teething problems " Glenn
"'Here we go................. ."? Come on, man, really?The owner switched up several things. He needs to trace his work and locate the issue(s).
Haha. Yep. That pretty much sums it up. I don't blame the bike at all. I still love this thing. Any issues it's having are my fault for changing things around. Battery connections are clean and tight. If it makes any difference this bike is stored inside and it's got about 2800 miles on it. This is the original battery. I asked about the mileage to get a feel for how many charge/discharge cycles it had done, not very many, are you measuring the Voltage with a meter? I thought you might have a huge parasitic load to run it flat so quickKiwi I'm assuming your looking for a voltage drop to see if the starter is in fact being engaged. I don't have the voltage numbers off hand but I do not think this is the case. I think the problem is further "backwards". I don't hear the starter relay click. If you don't hear the relay it's more likely to be lack of an input then Clutch Switch or perhaps the ECU is saying sorry you don't have enough Voltage, that's one of the checks the ECU makesI will get those numbers tonight and post them. Yes I'm still using the battery. I will change that out obviously. For now I was more concerned with the odd behavior. If you gents feel it adds to the problems of diagnosis, I can change it out sooner. To date I have it hooked to my big auto charger while Ive been chasing this issue. One the maintain setting. Not the starting setting. The confusion and worry comes from the irratic tach. I don't get how that switch could possibly cause this or affect this behavior. When I get a little time today I'll trace that wiring diagram. Thanks for posting that.The tach drives up scale to the rev limit setting as the dash runs through it's light show, I thought it might be stopping then due to lack of Voltage (its a stepper motor, it will stop where it is if the ECU shuts down) then I thought pushing the clutch switch might somehow fire it up again so it motors back down.Put the clutch switch back on the bar somehow so you can press it as you press the start buttonI did make sure I was in neutral. A few times. That's what I initially had thought as well since there is no click or perceived voltage drop like the headlight dimming while cranking.But it's not cranking is it? At least that's what I thought you said, Are you saying the Headlight is On.
Replace the battery! If it doesn't hold a charge, it's bad. Just because the lights work, does not mean the battery is good. All of your lights together draw no more than 10 amps. The starter needs at least 125 amps to even think about cranking.
Here is a V7ii wiring diagram in two forms:- #1 is in .PDF format ( but it is not coloured properly.) #2 is in .TCW format (and is fully coloured ) and is the format for TurboCad.I haven't been able to successfully change the TurboCad format to other formats and still retain the wire colours.This might helpCheersBrian
