    Next place to check is the kill switch if everything else checks out as ok.

    You recently changed your handlebars, did you trap a wire.

    Re: No response at ignition

    Thanks Brian but the bars were changed in December

    Now as I'm "working" from home I've moved my office up to where the bike is parked and stripped the batwing off

    On mine there is a row of contact breakers (CB)

    Looking at the wiring diagram (thankfully it's all standard) there's a red wire at the first one that is the permanent feed. I have 12.62 volts there

    On that same stud of the CB is the red wire for the ignition switch.

    Then there's the orange, the white and the blue from the switch going to the other CB's and the orange direct to the starter relay.

    At these connection with the ignition on there's no power

    So I think I've nailed it.

    I'm going to buy an aftermarket key switch with 3 wires and cobble it together using the plate my external power supplies are in.

    The big problem is that these switches are unobtainium and used they're nearly $200 in the states and non existent here.

    So my fix may have to be permanent.

    Anyways onwards and film at eleven

    And lo there was much rejoicing in the cat litter tray

    I've fitted an aftermarket, generic key switch and wired as per the original


    IT ONLY BLOODY WORKS !!!

    What? You mean the club insurance doesn't cover that. Very shoddy.
